Oh my, where to start? Let the superlatives flow. Truly Outstanding! Ligia checked in with us to custom design the tour to the wineries specializing in wines that perfectly aligned with our tastes. Wonderful. Rust En Vrede was spectacular. Making wine since 1694, they have truly mastered great reds. The lunch at Glenelly was delicious and the "Lady May" red (since 1783) was the perfect complement. A stop at Moreson for some sparkling wine and a finish at Pasarene. Spectacular tour. Bravo Ligia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael and Becky! How lovely! Thank you so much for the kind feedback and the update. So happy to hear you had a great trip in spite of all that's going on. Of course, everyone has been hit hard here. My colleagues and I, restaurants and other small businesses are in a fight to survive. But I trust it will all be over one day and we can resume doing what we love. And hopefully I get to welcome you back to beautiful Cape Town. Stay safe and take care if each other. Much love to you. Ligia

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Danielle! Such a pleasure. Thank you for the laughs (and insights!) See you next time around!

We had two amazing days with Ligia. We booked both her Wine Tour and her Food Tour. Her choices for wineries and restaurants were top-notch. We even got a fun Malay cooking demonstration in a private home. Ligia also took us to a local spice shop where were able to purchase some amazingly fresh spices at very low prices. Ligia was a pleasure to spend time with. Her knowledge of the region, local cuisine and the history of wine-making in South Africa made her tours very enjoyable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Josh. It was a pleasure spending time with you and Christopher and I look forward to welcoming you back to Cape Town!

Excellent tour guide and tour. We engaged Ligia specifically because of her wine background and this proved to be a wise choice. She was accommodating, friendly, and knowledgeable.

Ligia was very professional yet friendly & showed us around & provided loads of information. The restaurant for our lunch was excellent & she made sure it catered to all our needs as one of our party is vegetarian. A great tour by a lovely lady.

We were NOT the first to book Ligia via TBL, but we were the first to have a tour with her via TBL. I mention this as you will not find TBL reviews, though there are lots on Trip Advisor. This is nothing short of an incredible all-day tour. We visited 4 more boutique wineries that don't allow tour buses. Ligia's 20+ years in the industry along with her beaming personality and personal relationship with the owners really added a great deal to the entire experience. HIGHLY recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: How kind, Tom! We did have a great day and I was thrilled that you enjoyed my selection of wineries. It was lovely to meet all of you and spend the day with you. Thank you for the laughs! I look forward to welcoming all of you back to Cape Town soon!
