Whether you’re a tourist visiting Cape Town for the first time or a seasoned local, Franschhoek is one of the places you just need to add to your “have-to-visit list”. Located about 50 km east of Cape Town, this little gem is one that should not be missed out on. We listed the Things To Do In Franschhoek for you.
Franschhoek. Need I say more? This little piece of heaven is situated approximately 75km from Cape Town. Visitors come from all over the world to experience what this place has to offer. And what might that be? Only countless world-class restaurants, award-winning Wine Estates, charming art galleries and breathtaking scenery.
As if that isn’t enough, how about a unique wine tasting experience – the Wine Tram. There simply is no better way to do Franschhoek Wine Tours than by Tram.
What is a Wine Tram?
The Franschhoek Wine Tram is an open-air tram (and bus) that will take you from one Wine Estate to the next (depending on your route) in order for you to do tastings of the best wine you’ve ever had in your life. On this relaxed journey, you’ll have time to experience everything Franschhoek has to offer such as the beauty of rolling vineyards framed by mountains. You’ll obtain knowledge about the history of Franschhoek as well as the history of winemaking combined with a cellar tour.
When it’s time for lunch, you can choose which Wine Estate Restaurant offers the most appetising menu and spend time walking through the vineyards afterwards. Since the Wine Tram is hop-on-hop-off, you won’t have to worry about getting left behind – you can just take the next tram.
What Wine Estates will I be visiting?
It is totally up to you which Wine Estates you visit since you can choose from six different routes. Some of the Wine Estates include Vrede en Lust, Allee Bleue, Grande Provence and many others. If you are looking for a curated wine tasting experience, we can help with that as well! But be sure to book well in advance as there are only 7 spots available in such a tour. You also have an option to book group tours that include a minimum of 20 people. So if you’re celebrating a birthday and you’re looking for a unique way to do it, why not book a group tour on the Wine Tram.
