ChillGuru, the Hermanus sightseeing bus company, is introducing the Big 5 Taste Safari that comprise three, full-day tours that will explore the gems of Hermanus, Stanford and Bot River.

“The Big 5 Taste Safari is a gastronomic tour of our area for guests to really soak up the region and its picturesque scenery, while enjoying an awesome taste extravaganza,” says Brennan Davis, one of the co-owners of ChillGuru. “We will use our beautiful blue bus and informed guides, to keep the tourist experience real and engaging.”

Tours start at 09:30 with five stops before ending with lunch and returning to Hermanus around 15.30.  Every tour has stops for wine and beer tastings, and also includes tastings of olive oil, honey, cheese, gin or grappa.

The Hermanus tour has a stop at an Abalone farm, given its importance to the region, and at Zwelihle Youth Cafe for coffee, cake and a tour, allowing visitors to have a glimpse of ‘township life’.

While well-known favourites such as Gabrielskloof Wines, Zesty Lemon Restaurant and Sumaridge Wine Estate are part of each tour, one of the main goals is to introduce visitors to small businesses that are producing unique regional products.  

“We are continually working on ways to make Hermanus and surrounds a more attractive destination – and give people another reason to stay longer.  During winter, this is essential, but our tours will be a fun-filled and engaging option for visitors, all year round,” says Brennan.

Tours will begin on 27 May 2019 and are family friendly. Each of the three tours will be offered twice a week. Ticket prices: Adults R795, Pensioners R695, Under 18 R395. Prices do not include the cost of lunch.
