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

I took a couple of local and International friends on the wine tram. We only visited 2 wine farms (Rickety Bridge/ Grande Provence) and decided to use other transport as the wineries we visited treated us with little to no respect, and made no effort...More

Great Day out for either couples or families although best to find the family venues to keep the children entertained whilst the adults sup the wine

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
