Since the Franschhoek Wine Tram started its fantastic hop-on hop-off wine tours through the Franschhoek wine valley, a completely new dimension has been added to the meaning of wine tours in Cape Town! Seating 32 passengers on comfortable benches that allow travellers on the wine tram breathtaking views of the majestic mountains that frame the scenic beauty of the Franschhoek Valley wine lands, the Franschhoek Wine Tram brings you an extra special wine tour not to be missed.
Rolling past vineyard upon vineyard as travellers on the open air Franschhoek Wine Tram move from one wine estate to another, this is truly a unique experience designed perfectly for anyone who loves their wine and the thought of stopping off at some of the oldest and most distinguished wine estates in South Africa.
The Franschhoek Wine Tram is also the perfect outing for families, the kids will thoroughly enjoy the leisurely trip on the open side tram that looks a lot like the first trams used in the 1890’s, even the open air Franschhoek Wine Tram Bus used at various points along the way is designed in the same style as the tram, and there are very few kids who would not enjoy a family day out with a distinctive difference!
The combination of open-tram and tram-bus transports will take passengers around in a loop, with four different lines to choose from, which allows them to hop-off at each stop to experience the different activities on offer at each wine estate, whether it is a cellar tour, wine tasting and a superb lunch or picnic.
Each line takes you to an average of eight different wine estates, some of which are over 300 years old and some that offer boutique wines, no matter which Franschhoek Wine Tram tour you select, there will be a little something to suit everyone along the way.
The Franschhoek Wine Tram operates all year round, come sun or rain, and on days when it is raining or there are heavy winds, you will still be protected from the inclement weather while you enjoy the magnificent views, kept comfortable by roll-down transparent awnings.
