La Rochelle Tours was established in 2000 with the main focus being on conducting personalised wine tours in small groups and visiting less commercial wineries when possible. Our specialized wine tourism guides are all educated by the Cape Wine Academy. All guided tours and transfers by La Rochelle Tours are done in a professional way and we exceed expectations on a daily basis. We like to share information about wine in a fun and relaxing manner...wine should be enjoyed and learning more about it can be fun.

We are based in Franschhoek and we would love to share our passion for wine with you! We now also offer restaurant (lunch/dinner) transfers in Franschhoek (until 22h00 daily). Transfers to and from Franschhoek and Cape Town International Airport now also available.

Collections for wine tours from Franschhoek, Stellenbosch & Paarl.

Contact us directly when booking to ensure we plan the best possible day for you!

The Team: Danelle, Aylmer (Tour Guides), Johan & Thabo (Drivers)

Great depth of knowledge from Danelle, history of the region, viticulture, wines etc she really does know her stuff. She is also a great photographer we have some good pictures to show of... More

We booked the mystery wine tour and this was excellent. Danielle was fantastic, very informative, as wine novices we learnt so much. I would definitely recommend this trip, you can take the wine trams but they were 'packed', this gives you the opportunity to tailor make your day and gain some excellent knowledge on wines and local history. Well done... More

In previous years we have done various winery tours with this company whilst staying in Franschhoek and Stellenbosch and this year we tried the beer and wine tour and had another lovely afternoon out with Danelle. She is so knowledgeable about the processes, the wineries, grapes, history of the place and she is so lovely and great company. Everything is... More

Our driver, Thabo, was absolutely lovely. He made our visit to Franschhoek wonderful. He knew all the best places to go and we thoroughly enjoyed his company. Our experience was much enriched because of him, his insight and the personal South African experience he shared with us. After a few days with Thabo, he felt as much our friend as... More

We booked in advance to do the full day wine mystery tour. Our guide for the day was Danielle - she is absulutely amazing - so much knowledge of the local area, the winearies and of course the wine. The day is a mystery so I won't go into the details but I will say that the day is fantastic... More

We went on the wine cheese chocolate and oil tour on Saturday. Danelle was our guide and she was fabulous. She had a great personality and really made the tour. She took us to three separate wineries- two in the morning and one in the afternoon after lunch. Each winery had very tasty wines and Danelle provided a background explanation... More

We'd looked at organising our own ad-hoc tour, or taking the wine tram, but given a limited time frame decided to go with a private tour - very glad we did. Danelle (sp?) was a fantastic host, arriving to meet us at our hotel as planned and taking us on a short tour of the town up to a lookout... More

My wife and I booked a half day private wine tour and we're greeted by our tour operator Danélle a few minutes early at our hotel. She took us through Stellenbosch, describing some of the history as we made our way to Franschhoek for our first winery. There we tried 3 MCCs and 2 wines, which were delicious. The whole... More

We took the private mystery wine tour. Almyer was our guide. I won't tell you where he took us because it will ruin the surprise, but it was so much more than expected. Almyer was a great guide informative and very considerate of our needs. At the last minute he found out my wife was vegan, but he did not... More
