We head north to Paarl.
Our first stop this morning is at Anura or Fairview Wine Estate for a cheese and wine tasting.
We make our way to Franschhoek with a photo stop at the Groot Drakenstein Prison where Nelson Mandela was released in Feb 1990.
The village of Franschhoek nestled amongst the mountains, can easily be mistaken as being in Switzerland.
After lunch the tour continues over the Helshoogte Mountain Pass to Stellenbosch. It is easy to understand why Simon van der Stel decided to settle a village amongst the mountains.
The backdrop of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, the white gabled Cape Dutch homesteads and the oak lined streets and lanes all blend in to give this place a charm that will not be forgotten.
Time permitting, we will include a third wine tasting. We return to Cape Town with amazing photos and fond memories.
Sorry it's taken so long, but with the holidays etc. we're just getting back to our usual routine.
I wanted to thank you for making our trip to Cape Town such a memorable and positive experience. Both Luke and Mumkali (spelling?) were delightful drivers and guides. Both provided us with a much broader picture of the area from both a cultural and sightseeing perspective.
We will certainly be happy to refer and recommend your services to any of our friends who are considering travel to Cape Town.
Again, our thanks,as everything from our airport pick-up and drop-off to the tours of the coast, vineyards and Langa went off exactly as planned.
