Customer Reviews

The best experience ever!! It is so convenient and organized. Beautiful sceneries!! You are able to visit and see numerous wineries in one day without doing all the planning yourself!! So many options, tastings, food to choose from, will certainly do it again. Definitely worth the money. - Rita van Schalkwyk


A very pleasant and informative experience. - Robert Dobie


Thank you for the wonderful experience. I must say your staff are professionals. Will be coming back soon. - nontsikelelo radebe


We really had such an awesome experience at each of the 6 wine farms we visited. The tram as well as the bus quides were brilliant with some awesome humour. We will definitely be returning and recommending the to our friends. - Colette Kuhn


We had a very enjoyable day! At some stage we missed the tram from Franschhoek Wine Cellar and decided to take a walk back to the main tram station instead. On the way there, one of the many friendly tram staff who could see us in the distance came to meet us thinking we were lost. Because we missed the tram, we thought it would be too late to continue our tour but she very kindly called one of their drivers to take us to the next wine estate. - Faye Von Stein
