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.

Hidden beneath the glitz and glitter that is now the V&A Waterfront are the remains of the original harbour defences - discovered during the extensive development and building. The marvellous new museum that has been built over and around these remains, explaining and showing them off, is really worth a visit. It is fascinating to see the rocks, walls and sand that used to be exposed to the sea. Free Wi-Fi and free tea and coffee too! Can't recommend this place too highly. Pair it with a visit to the castle, and you will understand Cape Town's history and development.

This is an excellent small Museum featuring the excavated Chavones battery from the mid 18th century. It also has some nice summary displays in English and Afrikanz of the early history of the Cape Colony. I highly recommend this for bigger kids too. Lots of cannons and cool stuff to see.

We went on a historical walk of the V & A Waterfront organised by, and starting from, the Chavonnes Battery Museum. We were the only two people on the tour, so were able to really ask a lot of questions to our excellent young guide Matthew. Interesting and informative, it enabled us to see the Waterfront in a new light.
