FIND YOURSELF - ECO-ACTIVE®
Franschhoek, Full-Day, Simonsberg Sip & Cycle
We meet at your accommodation and shuttle to Simonsberg (Afrikaans: Simon’s Mountain) which is part of the Cape Fold Belt and is located between the towns of Stellenbosch, Paarl, and Franschhoek, forming a prominent 1,399 m high mountain. It is named after Simon van der Stel, first governor of the Cape, founder and namesake of Stellenbosch. We start off on the Northern lower slopes of Simonsberg, where they offer a blend steeped in traditional French culture and the latest in modern winemaking techniques.
We visit award-winning estates, such as Rupert & Rothschild, Noble Hill, Babylonstoren, Backsberg, Anura, Glen Carlou, Vrede en Lust, and Plaisir De Merle. The new and the old winemakers conspire to bring you an unforgettable kaleidoscope of tastings and amazing wines. We cycle between the estates and traverse a fairy-tale landscape with views of the Paarl Valley. The tour includes up to eight wineries, cellar tours, cycling from farm-to-farm, and a gourmet lunch – all at your own pace! If wine is your thing, then this is definitely the tour for you. At the end of a day, we shuttle you back to your accommodation.

Note: Prices are quoted in United States Dollars (USD) per person and are subject to change without notice. Even so we are based in South Africa, the recent swings in the local currency necessitated the conversion to a USD based rate system. This means we don’t change our rates with the swings and can absorb a 2 to 3 point swing up or down, without having to update rates constantly. It ensures a stable rate and consistent quality and product availability throughout our product portfolio.
Minimum group size is 2 guests (we’ll still run the tour for a single guest, subject to a private tour supplement of $40 USD). Enquire about discounts for larger groups (typically 6 guests and over).
Every day: Advance booking essential.
Our journeys are carefully researched and custom-designed to ensure a perfect balance of adventure and luxury – with zero hassle for you.
