“Wine Tram”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The wine tram was an exceptional day out! The value for money is great.. Free tasters and you do not have to drive which is a plus.. The choice of wine farms is great especially Grande Provence and Haute Cabriere. The transport runs like clockwork, 40minute intervals and you can choose when you would like to get back on ie. 40 / 80 / 120 mins.

It is recommended you book an early slot to ensure you have adequate time at each wine farm.

Overall a great day out!

“Great way to see the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Met lots of nice people and visited wine lodges. The tram was most entertaining with the guards with red flags.

“An experience not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

An excellent way to visit some of the best wineries in the area without having to drive. Reasonably priced to include the transport, a welcome drink at one winery and free tastings at another two wineries. A good introduction into South African wines plus some great places to eat.
