Hiring a driver in Stellenbosch

We will be staying in Stellenbosch for 2 nights and 1 full day and would like to hire a driver vs. joining a tour. I have found the Avis chauffer site, but are there any other options?

We also are going on a very early morning hot air balloon ride in Paarl - is it easier to take a taxi (are they even available at 4am?) or could we get a driver for that as well? Would love any help with contacts.

Thanks!

Marissa

I can maybe suggest to arrange a driver and let him/her take you to the hot air balloon in Paarl as well. I am sure that who ever you will be using will be made available for the day by including the trip there and back. It will possibly come down to a load of emails back and forth to get to a complete itinerary for the day, all the best and yes you can even search here on Tripadvisor for some recommendations.

I've previously used Nick (no relation) & found him to be both reliable & very informative. His car is both modern & in very good condition.

As TA will probably remove it if I put his email address on here, please PM me.

We just had a bad experience with Stellenbosch Taxis.

www.stellenboschtaxis.wozaonline.co.za/home

The were a now-show for my pickup to the airport and nobody answered the phone on their 24 hour number.

Result is I missed an international flight to Indonesia and had to re-book for 2 days later at a cost of R2900.
