Summer is fast approaching, and for some, this is the perfect time to start preparing for the many adventures to be had with friends. Planning a day trip to Franschhoek for can become quite overwhelming if you don’t have a solid plan in place.

Avoid this from happening, and plan a successful weekend away. Here are some handy tips to consider when finalising your Franschhoek wine tram arrangements:

1.Bookings are essential

As the warmer weather approaches, most places will book up quite fast, and seating is limited. The Franschhoek wine tram is an eight and a half hour adventure that moves between Franschhoek and Cape Town. By securing your booking, you’ll ensure that you have sufficient resources for the day to cover your food and drinks.

  1. There is nothing wrong with getting started early

Get your friends to meet up early on the wine tram to get great seats and that you’re able to enjoy the views as you hop on and off in and around Franschhoek. By getting an early start, there’s a much better chance of a particular wine being available for tasting and purchase.

  1. Ensure you have transport arranged

Whether or not you’re anticipating a late night, arranging transportation for you and your friends ensure you won’t  have to worry about it while on the wine tram. It’s important to ensure you remain responsible and don’t drink and drive.

  1. Plan your meals

As you start your wine tour early, it’s important to make sure you plan your meals and don’t drink on an empty stomach. While hopping off the wine tram, visit some of the great restaurants and give the local food a try. Ensure the restaurants you’re choosing match up with the wine that you are drinking, for that extra bit of tasty enjoyment.

  1. Have a game plan

It’ll be worth your while to do some research on the wine farms on the tram, and picking your potential favourites ahead of time. This’ll make it easier to know which farms to invest a lot of your time in, and which ones to take it easy with.
