Ernst Engelbrecht

Tour Guide

I was born in Cape Town and studied music and ancient cultures at the Universities of Cape Town and Stellenbosch.

I currently lecture Cultural Studies at the University of the Western Cape.

My interest in wine and local architecture and culture motivated me to start guiding. I have been guiding for Vineyard Ventures for 20 years now. My enthusiasm for travel – I have traveled extensively in Europe, North America and the Middle East – is another reason for my involvement in the tourist industry.

It gives me great pleasure to share all the Cape and the Winelands have to offer with tourists and visitors.
