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.

Passengers may dine at one of several restaurants on the tour. To avoid disappointment, it is highly recommended that passengers make reservations for lunch/picnic at least 24-48 hours in advance. Food or open alcoholic beverages are not allowed on the tour though food and drinks are available for purchase at the wine estates. Wine tastings can be purchased at each wine estate directly.

Customer Reviews

Amazing experience with great staff! Would definitely come back and do it again - Nicole Johnson


We loved it. Really recommended. The tram and busses are very cute and with the welcome drink the experience starts perfectly. - Sara Jakobs


Beautiful wine farms, tram is on time and easy to hop on and off, great staff! Had a wonderful experience! - Yajna Maharaj


We really enjoyed our visit on the wine tram and were delighted with our choice of the grey line. Prior research did suggest that the grey line would suit our needs as all the wineries were fairly close to Franschhoek, they included a mixture of different wineries and offered a range of experiences including food pairings, gardens and scenic locations. We were happy with our choice of Grand Provence, Rickety Bridge, Haute Cabriere (great lunch and scenic views) and Dieu Donne (great location). - John Hayes


This was such a fun thing to do! The process was simple, the views were great, and the tram was so much fun! Highly recommend! I just wish I had more time to do some of the other lines too. - Amber Schroeder
