A vineyard luxury bike tour in the quaint town of Franschhoek is a must-do. Families, luxury travellers, gourmands, and history enthusiasts alike adore Franschhoek.
Formally occupied by French Huguenots in the 17th century, the town exudes its history in its renowned wine estates and architecture. The former French inhabitants bestowed their vinicultural knowledge on the town’s natives and Dutch farmers. This allowed the valley to transcend to the status of holding some of South Africa’s best and oldest wine estates.
On a luxury tour of the valley, you will enjoy an authentic Franschhoek bike tour. You'll visit four estates, including the Grande Provence Wine Estate, La Bri Estate, and Rickety Bridge Wine Estate. The Grande Provence Wine Estate is about four centuries old, lying in the stunning Franschhoek Valley. Here you can sample exquisite wines and enjoy nougat and wine pairings.
The La Bri Estate welcomes guests to its charming grounds to bask in the surrounding rugged mountains and take a breath of fresh air. Indulge in wine tasting and biltong or chocolate pairings. As you zip up and down the gentle terrain of the valley, you’ll also stop by the Rickety Bridge Wine Estate. Take a moment to bask in the sprawling winelands while enjoying a wine tasting experience that ignites your palate.
