Description:

The Vine Hopper is the only way to experience the Stellenbosch Wine Route...

The Vine Hopper is the only way to experience the Stellenbosch Wine Route and surroundings by hopping onto our bus at any time and hopping off anywhere along our carefully selected routes. Stellenbosch is one of the most beautiful towns in South Africa and is home to some of the best wine estates in the world! These wine farms range from big, high tech cellars, through multi-functional farms and historical manors to small, more intimate wine estates that lend themselves to relax and enjoy nature as well as the fruits of the vine!With the Vine Hopper, it is our intention to offer you a good representation of the Stellenbosch Wine Route which should suit your every need, whilst leaving it up to you to decide where you want to go and how long you would like to stay!

Absolutely loved this tour of the Northern Wine Route. Tour was very organised, all staff were helpful, knowledgeable and accommodating (customer service was just excellent). Bergkelder was pretty awesome, but Simonsig Wine Estate was my favourite for wine tasting by far. We also had an amazing lunch at Warwick (recommended by our guide - the springbok loin was delicious).

This bus tour of the vineyards of Stellenbosch was great. There are three options (North, South and East, and you can combine two for a lower rate two-day tour) which cover a huge number of the vineyards of various sizes and styles. The buses were on time, easy to understand, accommodating if we wanted to skip a vineyard or keep... More

We booked four-in-one tour where you visit four estates in one day and since it was my first time in Stellenbosch, I didn't really know what to expect. Well, the tour exceeded all my expectations! The driver picked us up from the guesthouse, he was polite and knowledgeable about the area. The tour included Fleur de Cap, Van Ryn, JC... More

We bought a two day ticket covering the Northern and Southern routes. We had used a vineyard hopper service before in New Zealand, and found it to be the best way to visit as many vineyards as possible, but this was better. Although there was a published timetable, this was a lot more flexible than our New Zealand experience. The... More

We were collected at our hotel and taken on the Southern route of their trip the price we paid only included transport to the vineries. It is your choice if you take part in the wine tasting at all six vineries or just go for a coffee and a look round. There is a variety of restaurants on route and... More

It was our 3rd time with the vine hopper and pleased to see that they now have another route. Always very realiable transportation, good eine estates and we always have a good time. Nice if you don't want to do a fixed wine tour and be a bit on your own and flexible.

I think it is definitely advisable to pay these wineries a vitit , but please not with your own car. If you drink every wine you certainly will not stay sober. The quality of the wines are different at every winery and will provide you with a good overview what wineries in Stellenbosch can offer.

What a wonderful way to visit various wine farms! We managed to fit in four vineyards including a lovely relaxing lunch. Looked after throughout the day by our guide Marshall who gave great advice. A great day meeting lovely people and tasting some wonderful wines. Highly recommended!

We wanted to do a walking tour of Stellenbosch in the morning and a Vineyard tour in the afternoon. We met our walking tour guide, Simone (who was a star by the way), and off we went walking around and learning quite fascinating stuff. (If you aren't into that kind of thing give it a miss.
