If you are planning on visiting Cape Town you’ve made a great choice; it’s a beautiful city with much in the way of attractions, and the surrounding area is among the most beautiful in South Africa. with so much to choose from it can be difficult to decide how to spend your time, so can we interest you in a unique and enjoyable ride through the glorious Franschhoek Valley, complete with visits to some of the finest and oldest wine making estates in the country?

The Wine Tram is a popular attraction as it winds its way through the historic vineyards of the valley and stops at many places among the way. Here, you will learn the history of the French settlers who, some 300 years ago, chose this location as the ideal place to grow vines and make fine wine, a tradition that is still the main purpose of the valley today. You also get the chance to visit the estates if you wish, and two complimentary wine tasting sessions are a bonus with every adult ticket for the Wine Tram experience. These are the best wines in South Africa, and you can arrange for extra tastings for little extra cost.

We recommend that you take the time to enjoy the pretty town of Franschhoek, the starting and finishing point for the tour, and if you want to spend some time here we can help you find the perfect accommodation for families or couples. You don’t have to be an out and out wine lover to enjoy the tour – there is the chance for fine food along the way, too – but for wine lovers there is no doubt the Wine Tram tour is a must, so why not book your seats just to be sure?
