No trip to Cape Town is complete without a visit to beautiful, historic yet eclectic Franschhoek, especially so if you are a complete wine connoisseur and foodie, because this is where you will find the food and wine capital of South Africa without a doubt.
World class wines from wine estates that have vineyards as old as 300 years, dating back to the first of the French settlers who fell in love with the rich soil and perfect weather which offered them the opportunity to carry on the age old tradition of wine making they had been forced to leave when they fled religious persecution in their homeland.
The result of this long and interesting history, along with all the stories each vintner on the legendary wine estates in Franshhoek Valley is an experience no one should miss, and the Franschhoek Wine Tram team has created one of the most unique ways to experience awe inspiring beauty up close and personal in every way with their open-air tram and open-air bus tours.
You will be treated to a narrated history of each vineyard you travel through, and at each stop along the way you will have the opportunity to taste wines that vary from the oldest to the most unique wines in the world, along with the luxury of having lunch or a picnic at the wine estate of your choice.
The opportunity to experience breathtaking scenery framing the beauty of age old perfectly laid out vineyards combined with the warm hospitality of the team at the Franschhoek Wine Tram and the locals you will meet along the way on your leisurely journey through these beautiful vineyards at each stop on your hop-on and hop-off experience is legendary.
