Full-Day Franschhoek Wine Tram Tour from Cape Town

79 reviews
With three centuries of wine-growing heritage, the Franschhoek Valley is one of the Cape’s top wine areas—and the Franschhoek Wine Tram, a vintage-style tram, is the perfect way to explore. Travel in air-conditioned comfort from downtown Cape Town, then choose between the purple and orange lines. Besides an onboard wine tasting and narration, you have time to visit multiple estates on one of two lines.

This gun is loud lol, they make you stand at least 50ft away from it before it goes off. Get there around 15 mins before as they have a introductory speaker telling you about it. They give you a countdown so you can cover your ears. From here you can hike up to Signal Hill.

We arrived early and listened to the interesting and informative talk given before the firing of the gun. That was well worth the visit. What disappointed me was that the whole area, which has stunning views over Cape Town, seems to be in a state of decay and looks unloved. It wouldn’t take much to give the place a lick of paint, do some refurb work on the buildings and old shell storage bunkers and generally tidy it up. They could even set up some sort of museum to celebrate the history of the place. I’m sure visitors would pay an entrance fee for the upkeep of the place rather than it looking so sad and going to rack and ruin. Glad I went though.

First time we heard the gun, it was 'what the heck was that?' When you understand the reason why this is done, it makes you proud to realise that the tradidition is maintained, and long may it continue.

The gun is fired every day at noon. Having being shocked for a couple of days when it went off we decided to see it in action. There are 2 soldiers who set the gun off. One explained the history and how they load 2 guns in case one doesn't work. It is out of the way and not much to see there but it's still worth the visit and we are so glad we made it. Can highly recommend
