Why Explore Sideways?
Through years of personal exploration and experience as passionate food and wine lovers, the Explore Sideways team have curated a collection of the most delicious, immersive and memorable itineraries this side of the equator. We offer the curious explorer an insider’s map to all the hidden gems, unmarked cellar doors and the most dynamic local culinary experiences, all topped off with a dash of adventure.

Our team of expert consultants and specialist guides will curate an unforgettable private experience customised to your exact interests and preferences. You’ll come away relaxed, inspired and thoroughly entertained.
It all started with a government initiative to increase international tourism to the Cape. Being passionate travellers ourselves, Sideways — as we were known back then — was founded by a group of like-minded explorers who took the company from a mobile app for travellers in its early stages to the full-service guest experience platform it is today.
Our initial contact with travellers brought to light the need for more personalised luxury travel experiences from the more curious and discerning. Since then, we’ve hosted more than 1,500 tours and experiences for guests and continue to redefine the art of travel as we welcome explorers from far and wide.
Use our website as your portal to the world of fine food, fine wine and the finest in authentic and immersive travel experiences when you embark the road less travelled with us.
