The Cape Winelands is probably one of the most beautiful countrysides in the world, with views of mountains, oceans and vineyards. Learn about the heritage of the Constantia Winelands on our private tour and visit the 4 wine farms which originally formed part of the The Simon van der Stel Constantia wine farm: Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia, Buitenverwachting and Constantia Glen. We recommend enjoying a beautiful lunch overlooking the vineyards and pairing it with some of the best wines produced in South Africa.
