Guided Tour of the Cape Winelands



We’ve designed this tour with four things in mind: i) trying not to do too much in one day, ii) taking in as much of the majestic landscapes of the wine country as possible, iii) having some wine (but not too much!), iv) exploring some the architectural and social heritage of the wine country and v) avoiding the crowds. You should be able to complete this tour in a day (although it’s a long and busy one) but it’s impossible to do everything on this itinerary in the times suggested, so start by crossing off at least one or two of the stops!

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.
