She has a wealth of knowledge about South African wine country and is incredibly nice and patient as well! Anyone looking for the... More

...Lesley is my favorite by far! This is a raving review! I am a bit of a wino, and in looking for a wine tour guide, I found Lesley in Fodor's (yes the hard copy, they do still exist and some of us still read them!)

One tour day encompassed the southern Cape peninsula and the other covered Kirstenbosch Gardens and the Constantia wine region.
