Where there is good wine there has to be good food, add to this mix the stunning beauty of the Franschhoek vineyards against a mountain backdrop covered in greenery and you have a trip on the Franschhoek Wine Tram, an open-tram experience which will tickle all your senses and one that will be unforgettable.
The Franschhoek Wine Tram will take you along the route of your choice; they have four routes available, where you will be able to hop off and explore old wine estates and boutique wineries, purchase special wines to take back home and hop on to the next stop, as well as a stop along the way hop off for a lovely picnic among the vineyards or in the restaurants which are available on some of the wine estates.
Seating 32 passengers, the Franschhoek Wine Tram has eight comfortable benches designed to give passengers an awesome view of the scenic beauty which marks the Franschhoek Valley as one of the most beautiful wine regions in Africa.

Some of the most distinguished wine estates in South Africa make their home along the Franschhoek Wine Tram railway line, wine farms that are over 300 years old and still in pristine condition, producing some of the finest wines in the world, and in between the old you will also get to explore the tastes of a few boutique wineries, bringing the old and the new together in perfect synergy.
