Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Paarl Mountain Nature Reserve, Jan Phillips Drive, Paarl South Africa

The valley of Paarl, the biggest city of the Winelands, is known to be the rival of Stellenbosch. It is a town with a hot climate, perfect to produce dessert red wine, with a taste more sumptuous and stronger. Red wine overrides the production of white wine in South Africa.

The area is also well-known thanks to the mountain range “Paarl Rock” and its three recognizable granite outcrops. It is said that they gleam like pearls when the sun follows the rain, hence the name of the place.

Duration: 30 minutes

This is the time of the first wine tasting! Having a first glass of wine at about 10am is a challenge, but the wine is so good that you will not mind, not to forget the different types of cheese to pair with.

Stop At: Groot Drakenstein Prison (Victor Verster Prison), R301, Paarl South Africa

The Drakenstein Prison is situated between Franshhoek and Paarl. It is known as the prison where Nelson Mandela spent the last part of his sentence, while he was fighting against the Apartheid. Even if the stop is short, it is haunting to think about his long walk for freedom.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Franschhoek Cellar, Main Rd, Franschhoek, 7690, South Africa

Franschhoek is the old French Huguenots village also called the “French Corner”. It will show you the legacy, through the name of the streets and farms, left by those French people exiled from their country and came to South Africa to make a fresh start.
