After lunch head off into the historical Stellenbosch for a tour of this traditional Cape Dutch town and its oak trees. A quick visit to Oom Sammie se winkel (the oldest trading shop in Stellenbosch) will take you back in time, and the oddities in the shop make for great souvenirs. If time permits, you will also stop at an African market.
 
You will be spoilt for choice on the remainder of the day. More exclusive wines, more beautiful scenery before heading back to Cape Town.
