With over 20 years of experience in planning memorable holidays, Vineyard Ventures is a leading organiser of personalised tours in the Western Cape of South Africa.

Vineyard Ventures is a family run business that was started with the aim of providing visitors with the same high level of service that they were accustomed to receiving when traveling in other parts of the world.

The company may have grown a little since 1996 but our commitment to go beyond the norm remains at the heart of all we do.

These days our 'family' has grown to include our incredible tour guides; we like to think of them as super heroes - Cape Crusaders if you will - but more IN the Cape than wearing the cape!
