Activity Description

With the Exceptional Wine & Cuisine Experience, guests are treated to a day of exceptional luxury, travelling via tram and tram-bus to 3 different pairing experiences.

Guests depart from the Franschhoek Terminal at 10:15 am and enjoy a complimentary coffee and Beignet while awaiting their departure. Guests travel via tram and tram bus to three pre-selected wine estates.

Throughout the course of the day, guests are treated to a number of pairing experiences, including a breakfast pairing, a MCC & truffle pairing, an indulgent food & wine pairing lunch, and a dessert & wine pairing. After a full day of food, wine and festivities, guests return to the Franschhoek Terminal at approximately 5 pm.

The tour is strictly a wine-tasting experience and does not host celebration events such as birthdays or bachelor/bachelorette parties as the estates visited are primarily wine-tasting venues and not party venues. In order to properly exercise their duties, the Franschhoek Wine Tram staff members place a legitimate expectation on all guests not to behave in an unacceptably loud, disruptive, offensive, or intoxicated manner. Should any such behaviour be exhibited the Franschhoek Wine Tram reserves its right to suspend or withdraw its services. All vehicles are fitted with CCTV and monitored throughout the service.

Customer Reviews

This was a Spectacular day. My partner and I had a great time. The wine was plentiful and the food was delicious. Everything was managed very well. My only critique was that we didn't really spend much time on the tram seeing the countryside - but a small quibble. - David Levine

Amazing experience. I'd come to Cape Town just to participate in the experience again! The food was delicious. All the wines were so amazing. The pours were nice! Our guides were extremely knowledgeable and fun! My favorite experience during Cape Town holiday! - Andranise Baxter

What a fantastic experience, the exceptional tour was by far the best choice. We loved the entire day and learned so much about wine and the food and wine tasting was exquisite! I would highly recommend this tour. It was certainly a highlight of our holiday. There was slight confusion at the meeting point. But overall very good. - Karen Wyness
