Claudia Shook-Channells is an outstanding guide. My wife and I were privileged to share a day with her on a wine tour she arranged for us. Everything about the day was memorable. I suggested a couple of possible wineries to visit and she chose two from my list and added two of her own. The latter two were smaller and offered us a unique insight into the wine industry in South Africa. At both, we met with the owners who gave us the history of the winery and their families. Their passion and love for their craft is something one can only experience at small intimate wineries like the ones Claudia suggested and they made this a very special day for us.
Claudia is much more than an outstanding guide who develops a unique schedule that is tailored to exactly what you want. She is knowledgeable, organized, and structured. More importantly, she is also warm, friendly and flexible. It was obvious that she truly cared about us and was willing to adapt on the run so that we had the best experience possible. She gave us an unforgettable day filled with beautiful scenery, wonderful wine and a lot of laughter.
