Your Luxury Non-Guided Hop-On-Hop-Off Experience!

 

explore The franschhoek wineries with us

Your gateway to wine!

We are to be able to introduce you to the world-class wines produced in the scenic Franschhoek Wine Valley in a responsible way!

Franschhoek is nestled in a spectacular valley with a unique terroir. The wineries produce wines that often receive some top wine awards from the likes of the Decanter, Platter’s Wine Guide, Tim Atkins, Veritas Awards, Mundus Vini AwardsOld Mutual Trophy Wine ShowMichelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards.

You will be able to taste some of the best Mèthode Cap Classique (abbreviated as MCC) – MCC is a South African term indicating a sparkling wine made in the traditional method (the same way Champagne is made), by which secondary fermentation takes place inside the bottle. Chardonnay lovers will be in heaven, equally if you are an “ABC Drinker”- Anything But Chardonnay, this is where you want to experiment, who knows, you might be converted.

As for the reds, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Bordeaux style blends along with the odd Pinot Noir can be enjoyed.

We are happy to make recommendations!

So how does it work?

Guests can select where they want to go from the wineries, breweries and restaurants listed on our site.

Once we have collected the guests we will take them to the first winery/brewery/restaurant or place of interest – if they don’t know where to go we will gladly offer advice.

We will drop them off and introduce them to a staff member at the winery/brewery who will then be presenting the tastings.

Once the guests are ready to move to their next venue they can just call/WhatsApp us (or get a staff member to call us) and we will be there in a flash to collect them. We advise you to give us a 15 minute notification.

PLEASE NOTE: ONCE GUESTS BOOKED THE SERVICE, PLEASE DON’T JUST AUTOMATICALLY ASUME THAT THE SERVICE CAN BE EXTENDED ON THE DAY AS WE TAKE OTHER BOOKINGS BASED ON THE NUMBER OF HOURS THAT WAS BOOKED – EXTENTION WILL BE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY.

This is a fun and safe way (no drinking and driving) for guests to get around AND they have a lot more options available to them vs any other transport option in the village.

If you are not staying in the Franschhoek Village, request a quote for a return transfer and get collected from your accommodation at an additional fee.

Hop-On-Hop-Off at your own leisure...

The staff at every winery will assist you...
