It’s 7:30am, and I am the first to board the minibus called Arya, which, as certified tour guide Riaan Renke points out, is named after a goddess who was known as the ‘bringer of joy’. Of course, there couldn’t be a more appropriate name for the vehicle as I was about to be whisked away on the ‘My Big Fat Whale, Wine and Wors Tour’ - it runs every Tuesday and Thursday from August until December courtesy of boutique vino trip operator Wine Flies.
The company, owned by Francois van Binsbergen, is also responsible for the popular Wine Flies Wine Tour and Forgotten Route to Matjiesfontein trip. As their latest offering, this excursion completes a trio of adventures that afford locals and tourists the opportunity to discover Cape Town and its surrounds in a laidback and offbeat manner.
