Customer Reviews

Nice hike with good insights. Nice and helpful guide - also understanding when to be with us and when to leave us to ourselves. - Kim

We had a fantastic vineyard hike with Colin in Stellenbosch. Colin was a perfect guide. We were picked up from our guest house and were taken by minivan to the startpoint. The views were amazing. During the day we had two wine tastings and had lunch in one wine estate.The day before this hike we had a perfect winelandstour by car (by another very good company) and we thought that nothing could be better in this region but this hike guided by Colin was one of our best travel experiences ever. Colin used his experties both in winemaking and nature and combination with the fantastic views was amazing. - Peter
