Notes

The Vine Hopper day ticket is the most cost effective way to experience the Stellenbosch Wine Route. You can decide on what you want to do on the different farms and pay for tastings, tours or activities as you go along.

Please be ready for pick up at your Stellenbosch Central Guesthouse 15 minutes before departure time! You can also meet us at the Tourism Info office at 36 Market Street.

This is a great way to still be independent and not linked to a group but having the comfort of being transported, enabling you to enjoy your tastings at your own time without worries of how you are getting home!

Customer Reviews

We had such a good time in Stellenbosch using the Vine hopper. Before we went the communication was great - we weren't sure where we'd be staying or where we needed to head back to and they were super helpful and flexible. On the day, the small buses were great, we could decided where we wanted to go, and all the guides were bright and fun and helpful. Particularly nearer the end of the day - they made sure no one was left behind! We weren't sure which route to choose but my guess is all the vineyards are good - the five we visited were! Just be careful that not all vineyards serve food, certainly not later in the day. I'd use this service again and would recommend. - Jackie


Very good activity - very pleasants trips between the different wineries, with some very helpful and arranging drivers and staff. Very much recommended!! - Antoine Esclatine


We liked the tour. You have to plan your time well, as it is quite 'stressy' when you have just 1hr per tasting. But it was fun and Marshall was really nice and fun! - Karina


We did the Southern route of the Vine hopper a couple of weeks ago. We found this a lovely way to experience the wineries of Stellenbosch. The transport gives you what you need to be able to drink as much wine as you like without having to drive, and has just enough flexibility so that you could still have some freedom of choice in terms of how long you spend at each winery. We had a mix on our trip between people who tried to see as many as possible and others who were happy to just do 1 or 2 in the day and have a leisurely time. The drivers were clear in their instructions and very polite and friendly. They also picked us up and dropped us back at our accommodation, which was very handy. Would definitely recommend if you want to spend a day exploring the wineries of Stellenbosch and don't want to drive! - Rebecca Lane


We thought the Vine Hopper service was excellent. We found that two vineyards, with lunch in between, was sufficient for us, although most people did more. It was great to be picked up and dropped off at our hotel! - Brian Patterson


Activity Description

Kaskazi Kayaks And Adventures has the ideal location to launch and explore the Table Bay coastline from the sea providing unique and spectacular photo opportunities. Our shop is conveniently located at Three Anchor Bay where all our kayaks are stored on the beach. From Three Anchor Bay we embark on a 3 – 5 km journey either towards Granger Bay or Bantry Bay.

The view of Signal Hill, Lion’s Head, Table Mountain and the 12 Apostles is unforgettable. Uninterrupted views of our spectacular mountain range and the sea breeze will leave you feeling rejuvenated and hungry to taste more of what the Mother City has to offer.

The trip to Granger Bay takes us past the Green Point Lighthouse, the wrecks of the Seafarer and RMS Athens and to one of the favourite hangouts for our endemic Heaviside’s dolphins. They are common companions to our trips – particularly on summer mornings.

Customer Reviews

Most enjoyable experience with awesome guides. Did experience difficulty with our payment not being picked up by the system. - Ean Smit


Great team. Super friendly and always caring. - Paulo


I had a beautiful morning with the Kayak Adventure Sea Point. We were a nice group of different people who gathered together with the same purpose: to enjoy the sea, do some sports with an amazing view of Cape Town and we were even gifted with the company of seals and dolphins!! Would do that again and again whenever visiting the city in the future. - Renata Viana


What an amazing morning out. The guides were professional yet fun. We were a large group of all ages. They displayed patience with the group. Amazing sealife was seen. I will do it again.... - Dale Coburn


The best experience to do in Cape Town with an incredible view from the ocean over the city but also amazing wildlife sighting such as dolphins, african penguins, seals and even a massive sunfish! We've been kayaking for our friend's birthday celebration and Kayak Adventure in Sea Point made sure all the way that our experience is as incredible as possible. Many thanks to the team and I highly recommend the team! - Garance Chassaing

There has never been a better way to experience the winelands than on a bicycle and now electric bicycles makes it even more enjoyable and accessible to the whole family. You have the advantage of soaking up the scenery and surroundings at your own pace while not spending much energy as your e-bike assists you in pedalling. The e-bikes are fitted with comfortable leather seats and saddle bags for easy shopping of wine.

After meeting you guide at the Huguenot Memorial Monument(lawn) in the Franschhoek Village – Your Guide will assist you in understanding your e-bike as well as adjusting the seat post and handing out helmets.

Your E-Bike Tour will then start as we cycle through breath taking scenery while avoiding some of the main roads. You will visit 2 – 3 wine farms.

You will have time to take pictures as we admire the Franschhoek Village and surrounding mountain from different angles. You will also cycle through vineyards and working farms while your guide give you insight on the history of this cultural rich town.

Customer Reviews

Fantastic experience! I have enjoyed the tour a lot. The bikes are appropriate, Nico is really nice, the route and the wine cellars were wonderful... I would repeat the experience, if I'll come back, for sure! - Patricia Silva de la Calle


Excellent Bikes Good guide Overall a fun way to do some wine-tasting. - Anders Linné


First ride on an E-Bike - totally blown away. Easy to operate and makes tour cycling an absolute pleasure. My wife and I are experienced bikers having regularly taken part in races/events in KZN over the years. Now, advancing years has limited our enjoyment but discovering E-Bikes is like opening a new door for us. Nico was a great host/guide and the route we took was easy and beautiful. Well done, - a great morning. - Ian


Was one of our best wine experiences ever. Out in nature, beautiful scenery, good wine and food. Ticks all the boxes for us. Well organized and great tour guide. Regards Marietjie Steyn - Marietjie & Marais


What a wonderfull experience we had! One could not get to these places if it was not for the e-bikes and our guide. Will do it again. - Sam Pellissier
