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

What a fun way to see Stellenbosch. Our driver was knowledgeable and punctual. Just about everything you could ask for. It's nice to be on your own schedule, but still have a plan for the day. Highly recommend as a way to see wine country. - Megan & William Jones


What a delightful day! We were collected from our hotel and taken on journey through the wineries. The staff were so helpful and friendly, it was like being with a group of friends. The drivers really cared about the passengers and were interested in us. I would certainly recommend Vinehoppers, and I look forward to using them again. Oh, and the wineries were also good! - Jennifer Cooper
