THE CAPE WINELANDS TOUR “Grape Expectations!” Duration: Full Day - approx 50 miles 100miles Cost: Rxxx.xx Per Person About the tour: Visiting the Cape Winelands is like entering a sensory Utopia-a magical zone where everything looks good, smells good and sounds good-too good to be true? I’ll wait for your opinion after your trip. The Stellenbosch, Paarl and Fransch Hoek valleys are dramatic arenas of mountain and farmland in which the hard, wild geology of the surrounding peaks strikes a contrast with the soft multi-hued patch work of the vineyards and pastures below. Scattered thru the green valleys are elegant white washed farmhouses in the Cape Dutch style unique to the Western Cape. In these vineyards, some of the finest wines on earth can be sniffed, sipped and savoured. Other crucial elements in the Wine lands experience are sweet, clean air: delicious food and an atmosphere of sun drenched peace. There’s real pleasure to be had here- a place where mind’s truly blossom in tranquillity.!! STELLENBOSCH South Africa’s second oldest major settlement. This university town’s stately tree-lined streets and many of its stately homes date back to the 1680’s and contain innumerable national monuments. Stellenbosch is home to students, oak trees, wine, academics and wine!! It’s a peaceful but urbane place and the undisputed heartbeat of the Winelands, with the original and most diverse wine route- nearly ninety estates! There’s an excellent selection of restaurants in town ranging from continental, traditional Cape Cuisine, to Italian, Oriental and excellent North Indian fare! FRANSCH HOEK Three things make Fransch Hoek tick-food, scenery and wine. The last has been the valley’s lifeblood for centuries and owes it’s origins to French Huguenot refugee settlers and th its 17 century Gaelic heritage. In recent years this dozy town has become home to many of the Cape’s and indeed South Africa’s finest restaurants and has some quaint shops and art galleries. Lying at the head of a deep well watered valley, Francshhoek is blessed with outrageous mountain views on three sides. We’ll treat ourselves to a sumptuous meal, a rustic stroll and a bout of premium wine tasting. We’ll be exploring exclusive off the beaten track estates –if you can keep a secret!

About Mick Hedderman & Cracking Cape Town Tours Born in the UK but ‘half Irish’ I qualified as a Geography teacher at one of London University Institute of Education’s premier Colleges of Education. The irresistible urge to travel led me to give up my burgeoning teaching career, pack a rucksack and set off to discover the world. I decided to hitch hike to Cape Town; which transpired to be an incredible 6 month journey of over 25,000km. I stayed in Cape Town for a year and fell totally in love with her. But I had to forsake her for a while and travel on; backpacking through virtually all South America, Central and North America-all this before the days of Lonely Planet books and Internet Cafes!! It was a truly amazing but humbling experience. I saw some incredible landscapes, starscapes and seascapes. However, the enduring memories are of the amazing variety of people I met of all ages, cultures and faiths. I returned to my first love-truly The Tavern of the Seas. I started Cracking Cape Town Tours 6 years ago; typically private tours for clients of all ages from all over the world. Come touring with me in the comfort and luxury of my Mercedes Benz 124 series 200e ,with leather seats, air - conditioning. Costs obviously vary depending on the number of passengers and the various entrance fees involved. I pride myself on giving outstanding value for money and tours, which are personal, fun, relaxing , informative and different:! In short…YOU-nique!…Let’s get cracking MICK HEDDERMAN Registered tour organiser and guide Phone / Fax: 021-788-9666 Cell / Mobile: 082-710-5657 email: firstname.lastname@example.org Website: www.discovercpatown.com
