Overview
More
Discover the Vineyards of Franschhoek. The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley - picturesque vineyards, breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, fine wines and a 300-year history. Tour Experience: Passengers aboard the hop-on hop-off tour will experience a unique and leisurely introduction to the Franschhoek Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards in an open-side tram and open-air tram-bus stopping at some of South Africa's oldest and most distinguished wine estates. A combination of tram and tram-bus follows a loop of stops allowing guests to hop off at each stop and experience the activities on offer, such as wine tasting, a cellar tour, lunch or simply a stroll through the vineyards. When ready guests simply hop on to continue the tour. The tour takes guests into the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, with a guided commentary and unparalleled views of the valley and vineyards. Ticket prices: R170 - R220

Just a fun experience- perhaps not for serious wine-enthusiasts because its a bit rushed (unless you choose to skip out more stops) but a great way of getting to know the local region if you're not a connoisseur of Franschhoek wines.

We took the 'red line' and were taken to five very different and unique vineyards each serving their own wines and food. Each vineyard was very special and our only regret was that due to weight restrictions on international flights we were unable to bring...More
