And when you’re ready, simply hop-on to continue your journey!

The Experience

Take your pick between eight different lines, each visiting a selection of wine estates showcasing a separate part of the Franschhoek Valley.

The Hop-on Hop-off experience allows you to curate and plan your own day. You get to choose how long you spend at each spot (within the line schedule, of course), where you eat, where you drink, and the activities you partake in.

Your experience begins at the Franschhoek Terminal where you can grab a coffee, and browse our merchandise while waiting for your journey to start.

You’ll depart from the Franschhoek Terminal and be transported around your selected line’s loop of stops on a combination of double-decker tram and open-air tram-bus, allowing you to disembark when you like.
