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

Nwabisa and her driver were both amazing, attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable! Alle bleue was the most informative tasting of the day. Bartinney the best view and a delicious gin tasting - service was slow. Zorgvliet was beautiful, wine steward was friendly, accommodating and the platter was worth the money. Jonas was more like a dril sergeant, very forceful and robot-like, unfriendly and only warmed up when he way saying goodbye. Plesier De Merle - very average, beautiful set up but offered everything Bartinney did but not as well as they did. Vrede & Lust - worst experience, no host to guide you, staff ignore you completely, moved around to try get assistance and everyone ignored you. After 25 minutes of sitting around and being ignored we got up and left - grabbed a drink at the bistro instead. Thank you for a well organized, well diverse and very enjoyable experience - we will be back! - Simone Daniels


Very good experience. The organizing was excellent. Well done. - Elizabeth Hefer


Best experience ever, would recommend it for everyone. Would visit again. Have a nice day - Nico Steenkamp


Was very nice and the staff from the office to the bus and tram are so friendly and helpful. We enjoy the day so much and will recommend the expierence to anyone. - Manda Oberholzer


We love the experiences the wine tram has to offer. Every time is a new adventure with great wine farms, exquisite views, fabulous guides and an awesome way to meet new friends. South Africans really are the friendliest and most welcoming people on the planet. - Kim Salafia
