Overview

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

Ticket price is affordable and most of the wine farms give you free taste too. Well organized and always on time. Good idea to book one of the restaurant available to get lunch during the trip.

A great way to spend the day in Franschhoek and see a handful of wine farms at once. The experience is almost surreal and much better than driving between farms. The earlier you start, the more you see, but the more wine you have...

Clever idea though the "tram" bit in the title is ever-so-slightly misleading as you actually spend more of your time on a bus. Bus/ tram takes a set route and visits a number of wineries on an hourly cycle; you hop on and off and...More

My daughter and I completely enjoyed the wine tram. We visited 4 great wineries and met several interesting people along the way. Absolutely recommend even to wine snobs. Just a fun and easy day to enjoy the Franschhoek area.

I was bored most of the way. The rain on the day was about all that created some excitement. Most of the wine tasting was postponed so the wine tram was just a ride through the vineyards. Great for tourists, but not for locals.

Dear Sharon249 Yes, all Wine Tram tickets require payment in advance. Costs incurred at the estates are, however, settled on the day directly with the estates visited. Kind regards The Franschhoek Wine Tram Team
