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.

Ticket prices: R170 - R220

A fun and enjoyable way to see the wine estates on the selected routes. The service is efficient and on time. The advantage is that it avoids the dangers of driving after the wine tasting.

My girlfriend and I visited in April 2017 and had a great day. Depending on what time you start you can fit up to 6 different wine farms in. There are also 4 different routes to choose from. The tour guides are friendly and knowledgable making the transit between farms enjoyable. The tram is very reasonably priced and the tastings... More

What a lovely day spent on the Wine Tram tour. Great vineyards, lovely scenery and good advice from JJ made this a special day. Well organised and very good service and value for money. We booked on the day and managed to get out just before lunch but better to book in advance if you wish an early start.

This is the ultimate in wine-tasting! There are various options (routes) visiting a variety of wine farms, exploring their wines and appreciating the wine farms and the scenery. You stay long enough at the wine farms to taste the wine presented by experts and have something to eat if you feel like it (which we had to do after the... More

We did the tram with a couple we're friends with. Amazing ride! A great way to discover wineries and the region as well. I have to say you might get a bit tipsy at the end of your ride ;) A must do while in the region. If you like wine and wineries or just mountains and sceneries, you'll love... More
