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

The wine tram is such a great idea to give access to the wineries without anyone having to drive. It's not just convenient, but also very informative and fun. Get out at Grande Provence and Rickety Bridge and you'll not only have used the wine...More

After lots of research, my husband and I booked the yellow route. We selected this route as it starts on the tram (and we figured we should make the most of the tram while we remember it...!) and visits some excellent vineyards along the way....More

Had an amazing experience on the Franschhoek wine tram. Green line I highly recommend - Grand Provence (oysters and wine) and La Lude (sparkling wine and tapas) are a must.

An enjoyable and relaxing way to sample the wines on offer in the region. Some venues are more agreeable than others but certainly worth a visit.

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.
