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. 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.

very nice way of visiting the wine farm. super staff, very friendly, punctuality 100% bus service to Mt Rochelle perfect I will recommend this experience to my clients. - Isabelle

I was extremely impressed with the friendliness and sincerity of all the staff. Even when some of the tourist became a little rude, they were still professional and always willing to help. The organization and good communication of the routes, time schedule, reminders of when busses will be departing was good. - Riekie

Had a great time again. Second visit and just as good as we remember. Met some lovely people. - Richard

We've decided on the blue line as we've been to most of the other wine farms before. What a lovely experience. Well run, very friendly and competent staff made the day extra special. The food, tastings and knowledge of wine farm staff were exceptional. I can't wait to go back and explore the other lines too. - Esta
