Day 2: Winelands Full Day Tour

You are met this morning by your guide in Franschhoek and set off to explore the Winelands, a delightful drive which winds its way through superb mountain ranges, vineyards, and Cape Dutch homesteads. Your first stop is at the town of Paarl, at the foot of a cluster of remarkable granite domes where you enjoy your first wine tasting. Venture onwards to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, with canal-lined avenues and magnificent examples of Cape Dutch architecture where you can do wine tasting, coupled with a chocolate and dessert tasting. Continue onward over the scenic Helshoogte Pass and back to Franschhoek, founded by French Huguenots over 350 years ago, and widely regarded as the culinary capital of South Africa. Its beautiful setting and café-lined streets charm you and a final wine tasting is included at one of the renowned estates here.
A lunch stop is made at one of the estates during the day (to your own account).

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
