Camilla Mampieri

We had an absolutely amazing time! All of the vineyards were incredible and unique in their own ways. The Vine Hopper staff was great, too! Overall, it was one of the more memorable experiences of our trip!

Hamish Kirkpatrick

We were advised by my AirBnB host to use Vine Hopper, and we certainly weren't disappointed. Marius was a great guide, telling us loads about Stellenbosch's local history, not just about the vineyards, and was very flexible with the meet / drop-off arrangements. All in all, a great day wine tasting, made better by using Vine Hoppers. Thanks. Hamish
