Exclusive Wine Tours with Mark Tanner
I enjoy meeting people from all over the world, and I make it my mission to provide memorable tours and experiences for my clients, something I have been doing since the mid 1980’s. After working and living on wine farms in Franschhoek, and over 25 years in the wine industry, both here and abroad, I use this experience to offer tours at every level of interest.
When I am not busy guiding, I spend time researching and exploring new options to help keep my tours fresh, interesting and relevant – which means that returning clients will discover something new every time we go out.
Take a look at what I offer and get in touch if you would like to tour with me. It is always a privilege to share my world of wine with others.
