7-night Cape Town & Winelands Gourmet Food Tour

This 7-night itinerary to Cape Town and the Winelands not only takes in some of the very best hotels in the most magnificent settings, but also offers an insight into the finest dining that South Africa has to offer.

Spend 4 nights at the 12 Apostles Hotel in Camps Bay, followed by 3 nights at La Quartier Francais located in the heart of Franschhoek in the Winelands.  Both boast sensational on-site restaurants and are perfectly positioned to sample the delights of other local eateries in the area.

This is just a sample itinerary, we are able to completely tailor-make the accommodation to your preferences and budgets.

Restaurants bookings are purely a suggestion, and reservations will need to be made direct with the restaurant, although we are able to assist with this wherever possible, if required.  

All excursions are at an additional cost.
