If you’re driving to Franschhoek, park at the Franschhoek Terminal, located on the corner of Main Road and Cabriere Street, or make use of the parking at our Groot Drakenstein Station if you are travelling on our purple and orange lines and prefer to depart from there.
COLLECTING YOUR TICKETS
Collect your tickets at least 15 minutes before the tour starts from the ticket office at the Franschhoek Terminal.
If you’re travelling on the orange and purple lines, you have the option of collecting your tickets and commencing the tour at our Groot Drakenstein Station ticket office, located on the corner of the R45 and R310 roads.
PREPPING AND PACKING FOR YOUR DAY
Be sure to have a good breakfast before the tour, and drink lots of water throughout the day.
Feel free to grab a cup of coffee and a snack at the Terminal before your departure. Please note that no food and drinks are allowed on the tram and tram-bus.
Pack sunblock and a jacket (for colder days), as the tram and tram-bus are open-sided.
Make sure your phone is charged, as you’re going to want to take photos. If you’re planning on sharing them on social media, we’d love to see them, so please add #winetram to your posts!
If you’re planning on buying wine while on your tour, please consider purchasing our wine tote bag, which includes a discount card for use at participating estates. All proceeds go to the charity that manufactures the bags.
Wine purchased while on the tour can be handed over to the host for collection at the end of the tour. Your purchases will be marked with a sticker, and you’ll receive a corresponding sticker, which you can hand in when collecting your wine at the ticket office at the end of the tour.
