This is such a great idea, works really well, doing wine tasting without worrying about having to drive, seeing beautiful scenery and enjoying vintage transport at the same time!
Two tour options are available at time of booking, the blue line and the red line each stopping at different vineyards along the way. Tickets can be purchased on the day at the tram office or online however tickets are issued for a specific date and time when purchased and cant be changed. The tour boards at the Franschhoek Wine Tram ticket office which is located in the heart of Franschhoek Village. The tour allows passengers to hop-off at a stop and then when ready, hop back on to continue the tour.
If passengers wish to dine at one of the restaurants on the tour, they strongly advised that this is pre-booked at least 24 hours in advance. On the website, they do have a dining reservation form that can be filled out. We stopped and had lunch at Rickety Bridge Winery. Rickety Bridge was fun, some of the best food & wine, nice atmosphere and knowledgeable and friendly staff.
If clients are not staying in Franschhoek but like the idea of this, they now offer an exclusive transfer from Cape Town and the surrounding areas. We weren’t given much information on this but full details can be found on the website. I would highly recommend this excursion.
