Activity Overview
Send the day enjoying some of the most beautiful and historic gardens in the Cape – celebrated for its breathtaking views and lush greenery. This is the tour for those with green fingers and a love for watching things grow. Add some wine tasting, and you’ve got a great day planned.

Your tour starts at the historic Company’s Gardens of Cape Town, which is where the very first planting of vines were situated in South Africa. Perhaps a good cup of coffee before heading off to the next spot, the lush Kirstenbosch Botanical garden nestled at the eastern foot of Table Mountain. When Kirstenbosch was founded in 1913 to preserve the country’s unique flora, it was the first botanical garden in the world with this ethos.

You will then head from Cape Town to Vergelegen, a wine estate that has been nominated as a World Heritage Site. It boasts 17 formal gardens that are intricately interwoven in the Cape Cultural existence.

Next you will have the opportunity to indulge in a delicious bistro lunch at Cavalli, set against the backdrop of the estate’s magnificent (and also 
indigenous) ‘tapestry’ of gardens designed by Keith Kirsten.

Your final stop is the Babylonstoren Garden, which was inspired by the Company’s Gardens which you visited in the morning. The garden is divided into fifteen clusters spanning vegetable areas, berries, bees, indigenous plants, ducks and chickens and includes a prickly pear maze. Finish off the whole tour with a well-deserved glass of wine.

Don't have the whole day to spend tasting wine in Stellenbosch, Paarl & Franschhoek, this is the tour for you! Pick up at preferred location or hotel and drive through the Durbanville ... moreHills Wine Valley,
nestled in the Tygerberg Hills, a mere 20 minutes drive from Cape Town. With its hectares of flourishing vineyards, award winning wines and hospitable atmosphere, this wine valley is fast becoming the Cape’s destination of choice.
Situated on the cool slopes of the Dorstberg, with Table Mountain as backdrop, Diemersdal Wine Estate provides the perfect setting for the production of unique, soulful wines where you will experience your wine tasting followed by a lunch with flavours of the countryside and the relaxing farm ambiance in an old stable, restored with care by the Louw family, where they’ve been making wine for six generations.
Here locally grown and regionally sourced produce inspire Chef Martin De Kock to blend his classical French training with the flavours of Provencal France, Spain and a touch of Asia. The herbs and some of the vegetables are from the kitchen garden, the preserves and pickles home-made and the bread freshly baked.
Drive back to preferred location for drop-off.

This tour can either start at 9am until 2pm (after lunch) or alternatively from 12pm to 5pm.
