Franschhoek Wine Tram, Franschhoek

4.5
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.

Passengers aboard the hop-on hop-off tour will experience a unique and leisurely way to see the Franschhoek Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards in a magnificent double-deck railway tram and an open-air tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates.

A combination of double deck railway tram and tram-bus transports passengers around a loop of stops allowing them to hop-off at each stop and experience the activities on offer, be it wine tasting, a cellar tour, lunch or simply a stroll through the vineyards and when they are ready, hop-on to continue the tour.

The tour takes passengers right into the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, with a narration focusing on the history of Franschhoek and wine cultivation in the valley and unparalleled views of the valley and vineyards.

  • Really enjoyed our day trip here. We had a lot of amazing wine. Had hummus & wine, chocolate & wine and pizza & wine tasting. Beautiful environment. They offer private pick up at your hotel, very reasonably priced.
  • Great way to hit up a few wineries with amazing scenery. Staff was super friendly. Would definitely do it again! Make sure you show up early before your start time to get your tickets... They are very punctual.
