Chugging along the famous Franschhoek Valley…
…in the heart of the Cape Winelands is the Franschhoek Wine Tram. A scenic hop-on hop-off tour takes you to wine estates all over the picturesque Franschhoek Valley. With breathtaking scenery, warm hospitality, renowned restaurants and fine wines, the Franschhoek Valley is one of the most pristine wine regions in the world!
The wine tram is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the area as you will endure a unique and leisurely experience through rolling vineyards in an open-side tram and open-air-tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa’s oldest and most prominent wine estates. And the best part is… you don’t need to drive after tasting all the fabulous wine.
The combination of tram and tram-bus allows greater versatility and access to hop-on and off at each stop to experience the activities and wine tastings on offer. The tram lines don’t necessarily run right through the estate front doors so charmingly you get picked up by a vintage tractor for a short trundle through the vineyards between Rocky Bridge and Grand Provence.
Once you get to the end of the line, the magic doesn’t need to stop there. From charming BNB’s to five-star boutiques there are various accommodation options within the Franschhoek Valley region. Sitting on your terrace with a glass of white wine mesmerised by the rolling vineyards or by the crackling fire with a beautiful glass of red, your Cape Winelands experience will be complete.
