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

What a great way to visit the wineries. Using the tram means no driving so you are free to sample as much wine (and there are dozens of wineries to choose from) as you want. A friendly and efficient service too!

We used the wine tram for our first day in Franschhoek - it was a good way to get around and understand the locations of the wineries but took quite a long time getting between them if you didn't need to stop at every one....More

It'll do all the thinking for you. You just have the best time. Convenient. Punctual. Clean. And the staff were so accommodating. I recommend having a place to stay in Franschhoek post the tram tour. You don't want to rush this wonderful experience.

We chose to do the purple line because the first three stops are all accessed via tram. The other stops are accessed via a bus which looks like the tram. If you are really into your wines, I would recommend that you look up which...More

Really worth it, good value, well organized. Lots of choices on which farms to visit but be careful, you can really only see 3 or 4 estates comfortably with the time. Overall very relaxed day in a beautiful part of the world..

I don’t think it really matters which line you choose since the tasting experience will be as individual as you are. All I can say is that I think Maison does a brilliant Shiraz, Mon Plaisir had some really good reds and... More
