We are planning our first trip to Cape Town and Franschhoek in late August - 3 days in each (not enough, I know!) We will fly into Cape Town on a Monday, and we have the option of hiring a car at the airport and driving straight to Franschhoek, then back to Cape Town OR Cape Town first, then Franshoek.
I guess our concern is whether that Monday - Thursday period is okay in Franschhoek ... will the wineries be open etc? Or, are we better off being out there Thursday to Sunday?
Also, I love markets so I am guessing that the weekend would be better for markets in Cape Town??
Really appreciate any thoughts on this little dilemma, thank you.
