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

“A bargain!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

What a way to spend a day of our holiday. Sun was shining, 4 tastings and a very relaxed attitude all round. Take your time and write off the whole day. Having already eaten at Rickety Bridge on another tour, would recommend the food there.

“The ideal way to tour the vineyards”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is a fine way to see some of the excellent vineyards which Franschhoek has to offer. It is very good value and you can hop on/off during the day. So much better than using a car and no problems with the wine tasting!

“very disorganised”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

was very disapointted with the wine tram. everything felt very disorganised - we got taken to only 3 / 4 of the 4 wineries we were promised, there was a lot of waiting around and just felt it was a complete waste of time and money. it would have been quicker and more enjoyable walking to each of these wineries rather than taking the tram.

frantram, Manager at Franschhoek Wine Tram, responded to this review, April 16, 2013
We are very sorry to hear that you were disappointed. We recently launched the project in Jan 2013 and having only been operational for 4 months continue to look for ways of improving the passengers experience so your feedback is much appreciated. Due to the increasing popularity of the service we are putting in place additional transport for the tour which will reduce the wait time at stops and ensure a better overall experience for passengers.
