How to Get Around in The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley: Wine Hoppers


The best way to answer the question, “but who is going to drive us and miss out on the wine tastings?” is to book a Wine Safari tour with Wine Hoppers, so everyone in your party can join in. Pelagus Guest House is just an amble away from the Wine Hoppers’ ticket office and collection point in Market Square, Hermanus. Every hour a vehicle stops by the different wine farms to collect passengers ready to visit the next winery. This means a great day out can be had by all, responsibly. Book a Private Safari to have your own vehicle at your disposal for the day. For more information and to book, visit:
