Are you a wine lover? If so, you will know that South African wines come highly recommended. In fact, the very best of the country’s wines are made in the Franschhoek Valley, a beautiful area of the Western Cape within easy reach of Cape Town, and a place with a cultural history that is entirely wine-related. The perfect way to experience the sheer beauty of the valley, and to get to sample some of the finest of South African wines, is to take a trip on the Franschhoek Valley Wine Tram, and we want to show you why it is a great idea.

The Wine Tram is a journey on open-sided trams through the valley and the vineyards itself, stopping at many point along the way where you are able to get on and off whenever you want. The routes are all loops so you will always end up back at your stopping point, and trams run on a regular basis throughout the day. What makes the wine estates here so special is that some of them are more than 300 years old, and you will learn about wine making in the valley during the trip.

We offer you the chance to not only enjoy a fine journey through the valley, but also to sample – as part of the deal – wines at two of the estates along the way. You can pay for further tastings and cellar tours if you wish, or book a meal at one of the excellent restaurants in the valley. Children will love the journey, adults the wine and history, so what is not to like? We can even arrange to pick you up in Cape Town, so you get to the Wine Tram on time!
