Cape Town is a beautiful, vibrant city that is very popular with tourists, and there is plenty to see and do in and around the region. Of course, you can’t miss the majestic Table Mountain, an iconic sight that towers above the city, but we have something else that you will discover is entirely unmissable: The Franschhoek Valley Wine Tram tour! Why is this a must? Quite simply, if you enjoy fabulous scenery, fascinating history and fine wine and food, there is nowhere else quite like it!
The Franschhoek Valley is the place where many of South Africa’s finest wines are made, and a rich cultural history pervades the region. The valley was first settled more than 300 years ago when French immigrants chose it for its perfect grape-growing conditions, and they brought with them unrivalled expertise that can still be seen – and tasted – today. With the Wine Tram tour, you take a trip through the valley and are free to get off at any of the many stops along the way, each of which offers easy access to some of the finest wine estates in the region.
You can enjoy wine tastings, explore the vineyards, take cellar tours and dine out in some of the best restaurants in the country, and all at your own pace as the trams run hourly on a circular route. You can visit as many estates as you wish, and if one day is not enough we can arrange an extended stay for you, with transfers to and from Cape Town available on an individual basis. The Wine Tram tour really is one of the most enjoyable and informative experiences you will find in the Western Cape region, so get in touch now and book in advance to avoid disappointment.
