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

Well worth the extra money to upgrade to this experience. Simon, our guide, was excellent! If you are trying to decide which package to choose, look no further. Will return on our next visit to South Africa! - Tim

This was one of the best experiences we've been on. Our guide Roger was fantastic and highly recommend him for employee of the year. Right from the beginning, and because my wife & I were the only couple doing the Exceptional Experience, we were treated like celebrities. From the up front cordoned off area of the Tram to our own personal table at lunch was simply amazing. All 3 wineries we were taken to for Breakfast, Lunch and Dessert, were stunning and the food was 5 Star. We would highly recommend anyone to do this tour and when we come back next year, we are going to do this again. - KG

Worth every penny [rand!] We were treated so well and loved everything about the exceptional wine & cuisine experience! Beignets and coffee, bubble and truffles on the tram. Breakfast at Paserene was very delicious and paired with wines in a beautiful setting. The highlight was the chef's "English breakfast" interpretation. Lunch at Grand Provence offered fresh oysters with bubbles, a deconstructed Caprese salad, and the lovely whitefish was a highlight. Last stop was for dessert and a cellar tour, we were very happy and full by then. They were very conscious of my husband's dietary restrictions [vegetarian] and he was very satisfied, too. - Martha

This was the best splurge of our two week trip to S. Africa! We were treated to an amazing guide and a day long adventure of exquisite gourmet food and wine pairing (a wine for each of at least three courses) along with magnificent vineyards and views that took our breath away. Highly recommended!! - Elizabeth

Such a great day! Would certainly recommend to anyone visiting the area! - Thomas
