This tour is designed to show a few of the most spectacular mountain passes and views of the Western Cape. We travel through the areas where the world renowned Cape Apples, South African dried fruit, the finest export grapes, and a variety of wines are produced. The town of Paarl serves one of the best wine producing areas in the Cape, and Wellington at the foot of the Drakenstein Mountains is the centre of the dried fruit industry. The Bainskloof Mountain Pass offers many scenic views. The Breede River Valley on the other side is the principal export grape growing area in the country. The second mountain pass we travel through is the Du Toit’s Kloof Pass skirting the magnificent gorge, rich with indigenous mountain flora. At the summit we have a spectacular kaleidoscope of the Fairest Cape with Table Mountain in the distance. We travel through the Franschhoek Valley, arguably one of the most beautiful valleys in the world, where wine farms still bear original French names as do their wines. The winding Franschhoek Pass offers striking views of the valley. Further along, we travel through the apple orchards of Grabouw where the famous Cape Apples originate from. After a visit to the Apple Museum, we return to Cape Town via Sir Lowry's Pass where we have a full view of False Bay, the Peninsula and Cape Point.
