Terms and Conditions

Dear guest of the Franschhoek Wine Tram

Kindly take note of the following very important points:

The tour is strictly a wine tasting experience and does not host celebration events such as birthdays or bachelor/bachelorette parties. Unfortunately, the wine estates will not allow a celebration/party on their estates as they are primarily wine-tasting venues and not party venues. Thus, no birthday celebrations or bachelor/bachelorette parties can be accommodated on our service.
Tickets are collected at the ticket office on the day of your tour, tickets are not mailed.

Please be at the Ticket Office 15min before your departure time to collect your tickets. However, should you miss your departure time we cannot guarantee that there will be space available on any of the other time slots for the day?

The tour is a one-way tour, once you pass a wine estate you cannot go back to that wine estate.
The tour is a hop-on hop-off tour that works in intervals of 1 hour each. You can stay at a farm for more than an hour (2 hours) but this would mean you will forfeit another estate.
Compulsory stops, you must hop off at least at 3 of the wine estates on the bus before moving on to the tram section with the 10:00 am or at 2 of the wine estates on the bus before moving on to the tram section with the 11:00 am.
