Spend this action and value packed day exploring the 3 top wine regions of Paarl, Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. This day tour includes a cellar tour with Wine and cheese pairing at Simonsig, a guided walk in Stellenbosch, a Urban Wine tasting in Franschhoek as well as a afternoon wine tasting with chocolate pairing at Rhebokskloof Wine estate and is a must-do for visitors and locals alike. Stellenbosch Wine region After leaving Cape Town we head to the Simonsig Wine Estate to enjoy a cellar tour followed by a Cheese and Wine tasting. We then head into Stellenbosch, also known as the “City of Oaks”, it has giant oak trees shading the streets, which are lined with picturesque cafes, boutiques and art galleries. The Cape Dutch architecture dates back to South Africa’s Dutch colonial history. Our guide will take you on a walking tour of the historic town before we head over the Hellshoogte Mountain pass as we make our way to Franschhoek. Franschhoek Wine region The Franschhoek valley is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful places to visit in South Africa. With towering mountains and vineyards, Franschhoek offers stunning views from its famous wine farms. Franschhoek, meaning “French corner”, truly lives up to its name, with French-inspired cafes, delis and wine shops, and architecture dating back to the time of the Huguenots. You will have time to explore the picturesque town, stop for lunch and even indulge in another wine tasting. Drakenstein Prison Stop for a photo here and learn more about the Mandela story from your guide. In 1982 Mandela was transferred from the maximum security prison on Robben Island to Pollsmoor Prison in Cape Town. From there, Mandela was moved to the then Victor Verster Prison on 9 December 1988, where he lived in a private house inside the prison compound. Victor Verster, a farm prison, was often used as a stepping stone for releasing lower-risk political prisoners. Mandela served another 14 months at Victor Verster (Now called Drakenstein) Prison until his release on 11 February 1990. On the day of his release, reporters from all over the world surrounded the prison, giving the prison worldwide publicity.
