Description:

Discover the Vineyards of Franschhoek. The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on...

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.

Good fun

Went on the blue route. Good fun and an easy way to visit several vineyards. Had a picnic lunch at La Couronne which was excellent.

Great experience yet again! The bus takes you to places you wouldn't necessarily visit and then you discover the most amazing wine farms around Franschhoek.

We took the Red line as we particularly like white wines. The wine estates are all very pleasant for different reasons. Our very favourite was Du Donne where we had lunch. The wine tram itself is great fun. The ability to make the most of the vineyards, buy what you like and not have to worry about carrying it (collected... More

My husband & I chose to do the Purple line of the Wine Tram last week; what a fun experience! We got to do plenty of wine tasting (& nibbling on awesome food), without the worry of driving under the influence of alcohol. What is really nice about the tram, is you can pace yourself. You don't have to stop... More

The Wine Tram is a great way to safely travel between wine farms in FH and not worry about drinking and driving. They are so organised, the wine that you purchase at the wine farms can be left in the front of the tram and gets labelled so you pick it up when you arrive back in town. You're not... More

This was a really good day which we enjoyed with family and friends. The only downside could be rowdy travellers as the day progresses as some people really went to town on the wine-tasting.

The wine team is very efficient and simple, and effective - although not all of the trip is on an actual tram, the open bus is also great fun. This is a 'must-do' when visiting Franschoek!

We went with friends on the Wine Tram. We visited six different vineyards and I was glad that we were not driving ourselves!! You are given an hour at each vineyard, which is plenty of time, but you can stay longer if you wish and take the next tram to carry on your journey. Each vineyard charges for the wine... More
