The Franschhoek Wine Tram is a hop-on hop-off tour and one of the best ways to discover the beauties of the Franschhoek Valley.
Guests aboard the Franschhoek Wine Tram will experience a unique and leisurely journey through rolling winelands and vineyards to some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates. A combination of an open-side tram and open-top tram-bus transports passengers around a loop of stops, allowing them to hop-off at each stop and experience the activities on offer.
The tram offers four different routes which stop at various wine estates, restaurants and picnic areas. An exclusive Sundowner Tour is also available, which offers a premium wine tasting of four wines and a delicious canapé meal. The Sundowner Tour operates from 18:00 to 20:00 every Wednesday and Saturday evening.
In order to avoid disappointment, it is highly recommended that passengers make lunch or picnic reservations at least 24 hours in advance of travel.
The tour includes transport, guided commentary and two complimentary wine tastings at select wine estates. The Wine Tram also offers an exclusive and direct transfer service from Cape Town at an extra cost.
