About
With three centuries of wine-growing heritage, the Franschhoek Valley is one of the Cape’s top wine areas—and the Franschhoek Wine Tram, a vintage-style tram, is the perfect way to explore. Travel in air-conditioned comfort from downtown Cape Town, then choose between the purple and orange lines. Besides an onboard wine tasting and narration, you have time to visit multiple estates on one of two lines.

Excellent experience
Mar 2021 • Couples
We had an amazing experience on our trip, staff were professional and the views were stunning. It's a reminder to the ego how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. We loved exploring at Babylonstoren and had a great lunch at Backsberg.

Valentines Day Wine Tram Tour Franshoek
Feb 2021 • Couples
What an amazing day from start to finish. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the bus is so comfortable and clean, the tram, tram bus and tractor trips were just fabulous. The wine farms were organized and expecting us and to top it off we won the Valentines Day lucky draw for a two night stay at the Waterfront. Thank you so much for this amazing experience.

DAY OUT IN THE WINELANDS
Dec 2020
The 6 of us had an awesome day! The weather was cloudy so not too hot but we were all very thirsty!
It was one of the best days out that I have had for a long time...staff were very pleasant on the tram & bus as well as at the wine estates.
Our age group varied from 30-63 so a good day for all.
Have a big breakfast before you go.
The scenery is also amazing.
A definite yes for this memorable day.

Winelands Tram Tour
Fantastic experience! The friendly and efficient service from everyone made the day so special. The bus ride to the wine lands was great and once we got there everything went up a notch. The tram ride was fun and the choice of wine estates to visit superb. Thanks to everyone from the red bus hop on hop off for making it so special.

Excellent tour
Our tour got changed at the last minute due to social distancing and COVID19. Even with the last minute changes it was still excellent. Everyone was friendly and helpful, the wine was delicious and the location was absolutely stunning! I would definitely go back and try a different line.
