Cape Town Travel Consulting and Bespoke Itineraries 

On first glance, I believe that people have a misunderstanding of how to take on Cape Town alone (together with others or on a solo trip) and often find tourists touring this incredible city with tour guides by their side 24/7 when this isn’t really necessary. Cape Town is a small city, easy to navigate, easy to drive and when you’ve got an inside look as to what’s what and where’s where then it will definitely become a unique wining & dining experience as part of your Southern Africa trip.

Travelling from the UK or elsewhere? In need of a luxury or close to luxury itinerary and in-depth written maps and guides which are personalised for your interests, budget and company in food and wine?

I will personally consult with you for your upcoming trip to South Africa and discuss the opportunities and options for touring Cape Town on your own accord. From the best car rentals to building an appropriately timed itinerary essential for visiting the best restaurants – from underground bars to mainstream wine farms. This may be the best food and wine tour of Cape Town you will experience.

I am able to construct an in depth itinerary with everything you’ll need to tour the Cape with the freedom you’ve been looking for – perhaps you’d like to visit the winelands or read about where the best Chenin in Franschhoek is grown or in what region you’ll find the greatest oysters. You will be ready to go with a full pack of details including but not limited to: maps, fact brochures, tips, contact numbers, calendar, personalised cards of information relating to your chosen food & wine destinations. And much more.

The opportunities are endless and I would love to share my knowledge with you of the Cape by providing you with everything you need for a comprehensive food & wine centred itinerary.
