La Rochelle Tours was established in 2000 with the main focus being on conducting personalised wine tours in small groups and visiting less commercial wineries when possible. Our specialized wine tourism guides are all educated by the Cape Wine Academy. All guided tours and transfers by La Rochelle Tours are done in a professional way and we exceed expectations on a daily basis. We like to share information about wine in a fun and relaxing manner...wine should be enjoyed and learning more about it can be fun. We are based in Franschhoek and we would love to share our passion for wine with you! We now also offer restaurant (lunch/dinner) transfers in Franschhoek (until 22h00 daily). Transfers to and from Franschhoek and Cape Town International Airport now also available. Collections for wine tours from Franschhoek, Stellenbosch & Paarl. Contact us directly when booking to ensure we plan the best possible day for you! The Team: Danelle, Aylmer (Tour Guides), Johan & Thabo (Drivers)
