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

My husband and I enjoyed the wine tour. Wine and food pairings were excellent and each winery setting was different. The train added to the fun. Would definitely recommend! - Deborah

WOW! What a day we had! It was a fantastic experience and we were blown away with the quality of the wines and the food and knowledge that Simon our guide had. We are already planning our next trip back and would have no hesitation in recommending the Exceptional Wine & Cuisine Experience to anyone because it truly is exquisite! - Matt

Such a fabulous tour. We felt we may have been lost had we decided to go alone; the trip didn`t disappoint and exceeded our expectations. We were made to feel special throughout the day. The selected Vineyards and associated food and wine pairings were excellent. Definitely one of the highlights of our Holiday. - Mike

A really fabulous experience. Everything is taken care of for you. There are so many wines to try and the food was amazing! - Isabella

The wine tour was very good. From the start a good coffee followed by a fab breakfast accompanied by wine. The tram was like going back in time and very enjoyable. Lunch was outstanding wine was too! Lastly dessert lived up to expectations. The guide was great guided around in good time and didn't feel rushed. Recommended - Lorraine
