Experience a unique and leisurely way to see the Franschhoek Valley as you journey through rolling vineyards in a double-decker tram and open-air tram-bus stopping at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates.
This combination of tram and bus transports passengers around a loop of stops allowing you to hop off and experience activities like wine tastings, cellar tours, lunch or simply a stroll through the vineyards. Franschhoek Wine Tram offers eight hop-on hop-off tours giving passengers a variety of wines, views and experiences to enjoy. Each tour is colour coded to make it easy to choose and follow. 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.
In addition to the hop-on hop-off tour, a curated wine experience is also available to passengers who wish to spend more time to learn more about local grape varieties, cultivars and aspects of viticulture. The curated tour includes a lunch, wine tastings and a wine pairing.
