Activity Description

Please note groups exceeding 32 guests can contact our offices directly, at

Groups experience a unique and leisurely way to see the Groot Drakenstein Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards, stopping at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates. The itinerary covers up to three wine estates in the Groot Drakenstein Valley, each with a character as rich and individual as the wines they produce.

Groups will visit up to 3 pre-selected wine estates in the Groot Drakenstein Valley over the course of the day by double-decker tram (shared with other passengers) and open-air tram bus.

Start @ 10:35 am
Plaisir (Wine Tasting)
Zorgvliet (Lunch)
Boschendal (Wine Tasting)

Please note all lunch bookings will be subject to availability.

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.

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 did the wine tram group experience for the day before our wedding. It was amazing and all the guests loved it. Attention was paid to every detail and the food and wine was exceptional. We thank the entire team for their efficient and friendly service! :) - Michelle
