Owner description: 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

My two friends and I did the red line on Saturday!
we had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed the wine tram experience.
It is extremely wine organised and informative to their guests on the bus/tram.
Also the farms you stop at ensure that you finish your tasting in time for your next tram!
It can be quite an expensive outing ( I only have south African Rand's) but it is a real treat and definitely worth doing.
Made loads of friends along the way and many brilliant memories

What a fun day out, a great way to see what Franschhoek has to offer. The trip was incredible. The staff were friendly and everything ran like clockwork.
Can't wait to go again in December.

Basically the tram works as a novelty taxi service, allowing approximately 55 minutes per winery. You get to choose which wineries you visit from a predefined list of about 9 wineries per tram (4 trams to choose from). Price works out well compared to multiple taxis or Uber's, plus the tram is worth a ride. Would recommend booking in advance.

Great ride. Numerous routes to follow through the regions vineyards
We chose a route with a tram and a tractor carriage but literally only went to two of the 4/5 destinations available to us.
I had hoped to gain some insight into the making of wine but really it was a tasting trip only.
We stopped after two vineyards and returned to our hotel. It was enough for us but loads of people spent the day doing the rounds and getting very merry.

I don't even like wine (apart from dessert wine), but this was a lovely day out stopping at the most beautiful vineyards. An excellent way to explore Franschhoek with total flexibility. You could plan yourself where you stopped & how long you stopped at any one vineyard. Would go again if we're ever stopping in Franschhoek again!
