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

We had a wonderful day. Everything ran to clockwork was amazing. Can't wait to do it again - Ruth Pollard


A very well organised trip from start to end. Our group of 4 all enjoyed the trams and bus rides and of course the visits to the wine estates. All the tram staff were excellent and everything ran perfectly to time. The only adverse comment was that we passed the picnic area at Boschendal twice before we were dropped off with quite a long walk back to find the picnic area. This seemed odd and not very convenient. Otherwise we had a perfect day out. - David Robson


It was such an amazing experience. - Rona Hogins


It was a very pleasant outing for us. The timing was excellent plus the commentary was excellent. All 4 of us rate the experience as AWESOME. - Michael Smith


What a magical experience! We loved every minute, even in the 38 degree heat! We wish we had booked at an earlier time slot for us to see more wine estates but the one's we did go to were fantastic and had the most breath-taking views. The staff at reception and on the tram and bus, were friendly and happy to answer all questions we had. The staff at the wine farms weren't as friendly but the wine and views made up for it. The wine tastings were also very affordable. We have raved about our experience ever since. Thank you Franschhoek Wiine Tram! - Sydney
