The Franschhoek Wine Tram: an unrivalled journey into the history of wine making

If all you have time for is one day in Franschhoek then part of that day should definitely be spent exploring the Franschhoek Valley wine lands in the open-air Franschhoek Wine Tram!  It’s a pretty sure thing that you will be back to explore every one of the four different routes that the Franschhoek Wine Tram crew have mapped out to indulge yourself in the pleasure of fine wines complimented by outstanding cuisine.

The Franschhoek Wine Tram introduces you to an adventure which takes you back in time to when French Huguenot families first settled in this beautiful valley determined to continue a passion for wine making passed down from generation to generation.  Today, the award winning wines of this region are a testimony of the sheer determination of these families to carry on their age old traditions in a valley that presented them with the soil and climate to create magic.

The Franschhoek Wine Tram crew extend their hospitality and warm welcome to all visitors wanting to enjoy every facet of Franschhoek, from the village and its plethora of restaurants to the wine estates by offering affordable rates for their open-air wine tram experience.  In addition to this, the team will assist you by arranging return transfers from Cape Town, the airport and surrounds so that all you have to do is arrive in Franschhoek with a spirit of adventure and a love of fine wines.

Your leisurely open-air tour through the spectacularly beautiful vineyards in the Franschhoek Wine Tram leaves you with enough time to enjoy the beautiful village of Franschhoek or sample the cuisine created by acclaimed chefs in one of the many restaurants which add to the reason why Franschhoek is considered the Wine and Gourmet capital of South Africa.

The Franschhoek Wine Tram tours take you on a journey which includes stopping off at several wine estates along the line and if you would like to have lunch or a picnic at one of your stops it is recommended that you make your reservation at least 24 hours in advance to make sure that you don’t have to do the tour with an appetite crying for relief!
