Chilled-out & Relaxed Pursuits - Tours of Cape Town, Hermanus......& beyond
All these fabulous farms are set amongst breath-taking scenery and Percy Tours can organise tours around their stainless steel fermentation facilities and oak barrelled cellars.
Seafood is plentiful, with huge prawns & lobsters on the menus at very inexpensive prices. Outrageous steaks are readily available, with not only beef but also kudu, crocodile, ostrich and how about springbok in chocolate chilli sauce? Having a Mediterranean climate allows for an extremely varied fruit and vegetable selection too. If these culinary delights do not tickle your taste buds then how about trying - Jamaican, Cuban, Moroccan, Turkish, Italian, Thai, Malay, Indian, Japanese, French, Portuguese, Mexican…….and many more!
Oysters, wines, cheeses, fruits and many African delicacies are regularly showcased at large culinary festivals held over the Western Cape. Stellenbosch, Cape Town and Hermanus all host annual Wine Festivals.
