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

This was a lot of fun and a great way to visit the Wine Estates! Rickety Bridge, Dieu Donne, Grande Provence were our favorites. We got some great pictures of the vinyards and the scenery around Franshhoek.

“Great day out”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you want to taste great wine, relax without having to drive yourself, then take the tram/bus and visit great wine farms. To relax and hop-on hop-of at your own pace makes this a very enjoyable experience. Some places have tasty cheese platters on offer with the wine tasting and some farms have great little restaurants with great food. A highly recommended outing

“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.
