Customer Reviews

Another lovely tour with Bites and Sites. Loved the Butterfly and Blue Crane - a delightful platter and also the coffee shop. What great passion from the barista. Delicious chocolate and a lovely wine pairing. Altogether a real delight. - Mairi Peat

Uitstekend!! Mooie stad, vriendelijke dames en lekker eten en drinken. - Hugo Simons

We were the only two people booked on but the tour went ahead which made it special. Our tour guide was excellent, very friendly and knowledgeable. Well worth doing - Jack Moores

Absolutely brilliant and cannot recommend highly enough! Excellent organisation and a really lovely experience enjoyed by the whole party, aged 26 - 70 years! Simone was both knowledgable and personable and able to answer all of our questions enthusiastically. The addition of tasting locally sourced air-dried meats, chocolates, wine, coffee, not to mention a delicious lunch with home made bread etc, at various stages of the route, meant the time passed far too quickly - we didn't want it to end.... We loved every second of our stay in South Africa and this 'Foodies on Foot' tour was right up with our very best days! - Lois Richardson

Fabulous experience, walking around Stellenbosch, learning about its history and stopping off at local shops and restaurants to sample their products. Hanli was very informative and friendly. It was one of the best things we did in South Africa. Brilliant! - Les Henderson
