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

You can visit 4-5 vineyards with the tram/tram-bus (only 2 on the tram) if you allow for an extended lunch at one of them. You'll have approx 1hr at each wine farm which is enough for a tasting but if you want to enjoy food...More

Small train will take you to several of the wineries where you can sample the wines, eat the food, view the art and have lunch, a lovely day spent in the wine region.

The wine tram is a wonderful way to discover local wineries. Punctuality is exceptional and staff are at hand to guide and help you. At each winery you visit the reception is perfect. A no fault experience

The levels of the wines tasted are all over the place. One hour in each vineyard is simply ludicrous - event the better ones do not warrant such a length of time. The staff is friendly though. Would never go again.
