We thoroughly enjoyed Brenda's itinerary for our day in the Cape Town wine country. She knew all of the best wineries and organized them in a way that made sense for what we wanted to see and to accommodate a lunch reservation. She and her driver, Craig, were a lot of fun to talk to and learn from about South Africa and Cape Town. Highly recommended!
