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

The wine tram is the perfect way to see the wine farms close to Franschoek. While I think there are wineries that offer better wines a bit further away from Main St., the wine tram allowed us to drink care free without worrying about the driving all day. The 2 free tastings included are a nice perk. All in all, we had a great day on the wine tram.

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!

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

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.
