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

If you looking for a in-dept experience on wine or the wine industry and farms then maybe the Winetram will not be for you. I've done the tram with family and friends on various occasions and each time I pleasantly enjoyed it. The staff at...More

A perfect and uncomplicated way of exploring the Franschoek valley’s wine estates! 6 lines to choose- we opted for the green one. Only thing to complain about: it’s actually much more a bus than a tram.

Surprised when we got there to find it was more bus than tram. The wines were mostly pretty bad. Fortunately the company was great and the he small section of the tram was pretty special.

We went on the red route. Lots of fab vineyards. Rickety bridge was one of our faves. Well worth doing.

We booked online in advance and made use of their transfers from Cape Town out to Franschhoek. The transfers were excellent and the tram/bus very enjoyable. We recommend skipping the first stop on your route to avoid being caught up in a big crowd.More
