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.

Customer Reviews

Taking the wine tour was a wonderful way to visit the various vineyards in a safe and enjoyable way. I loved that the trams and trains were open-air. It was easy to get on and get off and the guides were very clear with the instructions. - Christine

We so enjoyed the day and the service was excellent. A really good concept and fun to plot the day to get the most tastings and lunch in - between scheduled. Would definitely recommend the Franschhoek wine tram as a must do. The only difficult part is deciding which line as all have their own attractions Looking forward to the Festival of Christmas lights which we have booked for in December. Keep up the good work. Dawn vd Riet. - Dawn

Our family left with not just a collection of great wines but also with beautiful memories of a day well spent. We highly recommend the Wine Tram in Franschhoek for anyone seeking a delightful combination of scenic beauty, wine education, and family fun. It's an experience that will leave you with a newfound appreciation for the art of winemaking and the natural beauty of the Franschhoek Valley. We can't wait to return! - Eduarda

Excellent. The scenery is fab. - Flora

Had a wonderful experience. Included the pick up/drop off service. We missed the first bus due to traffic but managed to hop on another 5 mins later. Really really fun afternoon out. Would recommended. We had 10 people in our group moving about and the tram and the distilleries were excellent. Recommend to anyone wanting a fun day out. None of us were expecting quite so many forms of transport (mini bus to start point, wine bus, tractor and tram) but made it quite fun - Beth
