Wine Tour Repeat, 10 Years Later - I reached out to Pam at Cape Fusion Tours when I was planning a return visit to South Africa 10 years after my last visit. This time, with husband... read more and kids en tow I asked her to plan family-friendly wineries so that my children wouldn't be bored while my husband and I enjoyed wine tasting. Pam, of course, delivered. We visited beautiful wineries in both Franschhoek and Stellenbosch that offered picturesque spaces for my children to to play and explore. Pam is an expert in her craft was able to discuss the history, culture and politics or her country with us at length. I'm so happy to see that her business has grown since my initial tour with her so long ago. It's no doubt a testament to her ease with the clients (and their children) and her expertise.

My mum and I visited Cape Town in March and were lucky to be the first group taking the new Sea Point Eats tour, having previously taken the Cape Town... read more Eats tour in 2018.
Our guides Pam and Cath were fantastic - their knowledge and enthusiasm for the area and food made for a fantastic day. The tour provided a fascinating insight into the area and the culinary scene. I have taken many food tours on my travels to date but have to say the Cape Fusion Tours are the best - looking forward to the next one!
I also recommend a visit to Cath's oyster stall at the Old Buscuit Mill market - delicious!

We had the best tour with Ryan! We went all over and sampled everything from Koeksisters to babotie. Ryan knew so much about the history, all of the best places... read more to go, and what to order where. He was easy to talk to, seemed to have friends everywhere we went and had a kind heart for those less fortunate. When the day was coming to a close I found myself wishing we had booked another tour with him. Thanks for a great tour, Ryan! We will be back! …

We did a walking, food tasting tour through Cape Town with Shelley and it was absolutely brilliant! This was the best introduction to the city, the food/drink, the locals, the... read more architecture, the history, we could have ever hoped for. We went from croissants, egg dishes and coffees to falafel, curry, local dishes, desserts, beer, wine and whiskey! All along the way we walked and talked about each section of the city, the history of the country and the people that give it its character. We truly appreciated Shelley’s knowledge and support of what the local people have created, especially with covid and how it’s hurt the hospitality industry. She knew everyone by name, and offered great insight into all things “Cape Town”! Loved this tour, highly recommend it!

The Best Way to Enjoy South Africa's Cape...Leave the driving and itinerary to them. - These private tours are tailored to your interests. We used them for three full days. On our first day Shelly picked us up at 8:00 am at our hotel... read more and took us to experience the famous Table Mountain. We then went on her "Eats Tour". As Shelly formerly owned and ran her own Cape Town restaurant she knows the food scene very well. We spent a pleasant full day tasting the cuisines that Cape Town offers and hearing from Shelly the history of the city. On the second day Shelly picked us up at 8:00 am and gave us a full day tour of the Cape Peninsula and Kirstenbosch. The scenery was spectacular including the Atlantic Seaboard, Ou Kaapse Weg Scenic Drive, Kalk Bay, Simon's Town, Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, and a mainland penguin colony. On the third day, Shelly picked us up at 9:00 and drove us through the Cape Winelands region where we toured wineries, large beautiful gardens, shops, and an amazing lunch at the beautiful Delaire Graff Estate. At the end of the day she drove us to our Franschhoek hotel. Shelly is a great guide, a great driver, and plenty of fun. I highly recommend you request her as your guide.

We spent a great day in central Cape Town exploring some of the hidden gems of the city. Our guide, Ryan, was really informative and gave us the perfect balance... read more of eating, drinking, history and exploring. So glad we only had a light breakfast and definitely didn’t need an evening meal! Definitely recommend this tour.

This was highly recommended by YPO and we loved it! It was our first tour in Africa and Katherine took us to countless local spots which all had absolutely amazing... read more food. My husband and I are picky- pescatarians and hate onions and we did not have any problems with the food. You park and basically walk around the city so wear comfortable shoes. Must do!

This is our 9th visit to Cape Town, and the 8th time we have shared our favourite days with Pam and her fabulous private, bespoke wine tasting days. This visit... read more we went on three so I will try to condense. The reasons for using Pam are simple, he knowledge about each estate we visit is fantastic, she can arrange unique tastings which are not normally available to the public, she tailors each day to your personal taste and finally she is a lovely, fun person to spend the day with.
Our 1st day took us to my husbands favourites Hartenberg, fab tasting in their private cellar and Beyerskloof, met with the Wine Maker, always a special touch. Pam always books fantastic places for lunch, for these 3 days we went to The Vine, Jewel (met the lovely chef who showed us round) and The Long Table. All perfect. After lunch we hit Bartinney for more wine and an excellent Gin tasting, just for me.
2and day we had a very personal MCC tasting with Nick, the owner of Morena. Limited bottles made of this excellent MCC, from his own house, with amazing views. Wonderful. Then onto Paserene and Avondale. All the tastings were completely different experience .
3rd day we went to Raats, again, Pam did her magic as they do limited tastings. Their wine is amazing and has just being excepted by Emirates airlines for their flights, what an achievement. Then onto Kleonood, simply magical, sat on the lawn of their garden, mountains in the back, truly memorable. Quick stop at Spier and finishing at Starke Conde. Cannot recommend Cape Fusion enough. We will be back next year.

We had two fantastic trips with Anine from Cape Fusion Tours, first to Cape of Good Hope, second to Stellenbosch wine region. Anine told us all about the region... read more as we went down the gorgeous ocean road in search of penguins and ostriches. Such a fun journey in the most beautiful part of the world. Anine made everything run so smoothly and managed to score us the most perfect table for lunch by the ocean. She truly went the extra mile to make us feel special and to help us see all the wonderful areas that make up the Cape. A few days later, we were happily reunited with Anine for our foodie trip to Stellenbosch wine region. Anine remembered what we liked - red wine- and picked boutique vineyards with an eye for sustainability, which was perfect for us. Then, after a fabulous lunch at Jordan’s, Anine delivered us to our luxury accommodations in the Stellenbosch area, making sure we had a bottle of red wine upon our arrival. We were completely spoiled by Anine! Thank you! Gail

Pam was our tour guide for 2 days, and she really gave us the whole experience of Cape Town! We did the peninsula tour, as well as the Cape Winelands.... read more Pam is so knowledgeable, and gave us so much history on our rides that really opened our eyes as tourists. She was easily able to read our interests and cater the tour accordingly to make it even more personal. The van was very comfortable with plenty of room, so much so that we often found ourselves nodding off on the way home after a long day of sight seeing! We really felt like we got to experience all of Cape Town, because there truly is so much to see. Pam even gave us lots of recommendations for the days we were not with her, and we got to visit most of them. It really made us feel like locals more than tourists to be able to find the hole in the wall spots. She also served as our personal photographer and gave us lots of great memories for our honeymoon. We really enjoyed chatting with her through all of the stops, and felt like we were on a visit with a close friend. We had so much fun touring with Pam, thank you!

Good eats and learning in Cape Town - Our family of six adults did an all-day food tour of Cape Town with our guide Shelley, a vivacious, knowledgeable local, who exposed us to the variety of food and... read more culture that exists within Cape Town. From the best ice cream spot, to a tea house with a private tasting accompanied by tea cakes and the like made with local herbs and spices, to a trip to a muslim neighborhood spice store, we all enjoyed the day immensely. It was clear that Shelley was passionate about her city and what it had to offer. This tour enabled us to see a variety of neighborhoods that we might not have seen on our own.
