Brought back to life in a one-of-a-kind way, the Franschhoek Wine Tram team found a unique way to bring new life to train tracks originally built in 1904 by creating a completely new way of exploring the exquisite Franshhoek Valley and its historical vineyards, some of which have a history that dates back to 300 years ago.
This is an experience of a lifetime that no visitor to the shores of Cape Town should miss, rolling through lush vineyards against a stunning backdrop of some of the most beautiful mountains in South Africa. It’s not just the journey in the Franschhoek Wine Tram that gives you a taste of Franschhoek Valley from a unique perspective that gives this area the reputation of being one of the premium destinations in the Cape, the town of Franschhoek itself is a mix of history, culture, art, divine food and world renowned wines.
There is definitely something for everyone who wanders down the main street in Franschhoek, from designer clothing to artwork and so much more in a welcoming atmosphere. After your journey to various wine estates on your Franschhoek Wine Tram trip, loaded with all the goodies that some of these wine estates have in their deli’s, there is no doubt that you will add even more to your bags of goodies to take home once you have spent some time in this picturesque village.
Besides the hop-on hop-off Franschhoek Wine Tram which takes you to a selection of wine farms along four different lines, you can get a group of friends together to celebrate anything you think worth celebrating on a private Franschhoek Wine Tram tour, which will take you to four wine estates in the Franschhoek Valley to enjoy premium wine tasting of award winning wines along with a stop off for lunch or a picnic. If you are going to have a group lunch or picnic it is essential to let the Franschhoek Wine Tram team know in advance.
Whether you are taking the Franschhoek Wine Tram as a family, a group or as a single person who enjoys being among like-minded people, make the most of everything this beautiful valley has to offer and leave with memories to last a lifetime.
