Why go with My Big, Fat Whale, Wine and Wors tour?
The fun-loving company will whisk you off to discover the hidden gems of the Cape Winelands, and thanks to its musical swapping chairs policy you will make many friends along the way, experience different wines in different wine regions, taste local Wors (sausage) and delicacies and meet different local characters, all the way up to Hermanus's majestic whales. A diverse and interesting day, showcasing the art of wine making, the history and culture of this area, and of course the star, our whales...all done in a Big, Fat Fun loving way.
