The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley – picturesque vineyards, breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, fine wines and a 300 year history.

Passengers aboard the hop-on hop-off tour will experience a unique and leisurely way to see the Franschhoek Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards in a magnificent double-deck railway tram and an open-air tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates.

A combination of double deck railway tram and tram-bus transports passengers around a loop of stops allowing them to hop-off at each stop and experience the activities on offer, be it wine tasting, a cellar tour, lunch or simply a stroll through the vineyards and when they are ready, hop-on to continue the tour.

The tour takes passengers right into the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, with a narration focusing on the history of Franschhoek and wine cultivation in the valley and unparalleled views of the valley and vineyards.

  • Really good idea if your only in Franschhoek for a short time and want to sample a few wineries. Yes you could uber or taxi from one to the other but I really enjoyed the tram snaking it's way away...

  • This is an absolute blast where you get taken around to try beautiful wine and eat great food. Our guide was really helpful and kept the wine flowing.

  • Despite having lived in Cape Town for years, last weekend was my first adventure on the wine tram. What an absolutely wonderful setup and service! From purchasing tickets online to the smooth boarding experience, every step was brilliant. We went on the grey line, staring with the bus. Our guide, Simon, was excellent: knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and just great vibes. I recommend starting early. We boarded at 11:30, and we still had to pick and choose which vineyards to take our time at. So more time means more leisure, and more value! I'll definitely be back to try another line.
  • My favourite. A must do when in Cape Town. I'd advise you not to drive there unless you have a designated driver especially if you'll be tasting wine in the wine farms. Stunning views. I have done a few lines of the Wine tram, It's better to be early in order to try out most wine farms on the line you'll choose
