Private Tour Guide

There’s nothing better than taking a helicopter flight over the magnificent Cape Winelands. It adds an element of class and luxury to any itinerary. The breathtaking view allows you to fully appreciate the extent of South Africa’s national vineyards and the mountainous terrain that makes up the stunning and varied topography of the Western Cape.

Lift off from the helipad near the V&A Waterfront in your private helicopter and make your way out over the harbour bridge, Table Bay and the gentle swell of the Atlantic Ocean. Take in the iconic view of Table Mountain as well as Lion’s Head and the Cape Town ‘city bowl’ or CBD before you make your way over to the jewels of the Western Cape: the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek winelands. Gaze out over Table Bay to your left and False Bay to your right and the Simonsberg, Helderberg and Hottentots Holland Mountain ranges directly in front of you.

Your Winelands itinerary will be made up of three to four superb wine estates chosen for the quality of their offering – everything from the food, the wine and the views to the service, ambience and setting is taken into account to ensure your experience surpasses all expectations. Our relationships with each estate allows us unfettered access to the cellars, barrel rooms and experiences not available to just anyone. Enjoy conversations with proprietors or winemakers and learn about the deep-seated history and heritage of South Africa’s winemaking tradition.
