Customer Reviews

What a experience it was. We really enjoyed the display of lights and it was well thought out. The staff was so very professional, friendly and helpful. They really have a passion for what they do and it shows. - Maurice Fritz


Naand, Dit was 'n heerlike en aangename aand. Ons het die Tram rit en die liggies en die oulike koor en heerlike kos, koffie en koeldrank baie geniet! Die Festival of Lights was suksesvol. Hou dit gerus weer hierdie feestyd. Dankie Groete - Marzaan Van Niekerk


What a great experience! Def recommended to keep the Christmas spirit high for the kids, even us adults loved every minute! Can't wait for next year, we will def be back - Chantel Hill


What a fabulous evening. We were on holiday in South Africa for six weeks and our host for our stay in Franschhoek sent me the link for the new Festival of Lights as he thought we might enjoy it - and how right he was! We were greeted by a lovely choir singing Christmas carols and there was a lovely buzz about the place. Lovely home-cooked food was available and plenty of soft drinks The Wine Tram was delicious and our trip up and down the line was quite magical. The whole idea was brilliant and I hope you made lots of money for your charity We'll be back to South Africa again and hope the Festival of Lights becomes an annual event - Jan Hanwell


It was such an amazing experience!!! The kids loved it, we as adults loved it.. love the fact that it was a mix of lights and real life humans.. the music and songs on the bus were on point!! Loooved it. Suggestions: We initially booked the 20:00 slot but then realised the sun only sets later so that should be kept in mind as the experience is better in the dark I think. Maybe more lights and extend the trip by 10 min?! All in all an amazing experience, so worth it.. thank you!!! - Shani-Lee Balie
