The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour is among the best ways to uncover the real flavour of the Franschhoek Valley – idyllic vineyards, heavenly scenery, warm hospitality, world-class food, high-quality wines and a 300-year heritage.

A combination of tram and tram-bus conveys passengers around a circle of stops enabling them to hop-off at every stop and discover the activities being offered, be it wine tasting, lunch, a cellar tour, or a walk through the vineyards and once they’re ready, hop-on to carry on with the tour.
