Fabulous day Although it is called a wine tram part of the trip is by wine bus - but don't let this put you off. The tram/bus travels around the area - allowing you to see the sites - and stops at a number of vineyards. You can choose which ones to go to - and the girl in the ticket office was very helpful here asking us what sort of wines we liked and then recommending the places to visit. I can't think of a better thing to do on a lovely sunny day than travel around the various vineyards where you then paid to sample a number of different wine, and most places also served lunch. What really impressed us was the staff were good at explaining the various wines and there was absolutely no pressure on us to buy any to take home. One slightly disappointing aspect was that none of the ones we visited actually allowed you to tour and see how the whole process etc worked. We had intended to visit 3 but it was so lovely we ended up doing 4. Anyone who enjoys wine and site seeing should do this if they can.

Go Do It !! Family wanted to do this, I wasn't to bothered but went along. So glad I did because it was a fantastic day. So we where coached from Camps Bay direct to tram station. Took the tram for a short ride to a winery then back to where we started then small bus takes to the others. Hop on hop off service so you can stay where you want. Highlight was Boschendal where we tried the wine and cheese platter under a large oak tree in beautiful surroundings Well worth going its a great day and wine is cheap.

Red Line Frolics! 5 adults, 2 children and lots of wine - what could possibly go wrong! We had the best day which was remarkably child friendly with lots for them to do at each stop we made - whilst we made the most of the delicious wines. A mixture of tram, tractor and bus...made for such a fun day. Wouldn't have changed any of it. Great fun staff; excellent hosts at each stop and delicious wines and food. Thoroughly recommend!

A must do! Fantastic day enjoying visits and wine tasting on beautiful wine estates. The wine tram is the best way to do it. It’s fun and the best deal, No Driving! Different routes proposed, we chose the purple and no regret!

Purple line fun! An absolute highlight during our honeymoon - so much fun visiting the vineyards (although very dangerous - my husband was carrying me home by the end!). We did the purple line. Highlights were wine and cheese pairing at Boschendel and the fudge and wine pairing at Plaisir de Merle. Would highly recommend!

Wunderbare Tour durch das Weinland Wir hatten eine wunderbare Tour durch das Weinland. Leider ist der Aufenthalt an den einzelnen Weingütern sehr kurz. Man sollte sich die Weingüter vorher genau im Internet (Rezessionen) anshen und entscheiden, wo man hin will. Die Landschaft ist herrlich, sowie die Fahrt mit der Tram. Beim nächstenmal wieder! Auch wenn man nach der dritten Weinprobe genug hat!
