Thank you for booking a tour with us. We look forward to hosting you. We encourage you to pre-plan your day with us by making use of the timetable on our website.

Kindly take note of the following very important points:

The tour is strictly a wine tasting experience and does not host celebration events such as birthdays or bachelor/bachelorette parties. Unfortunately, the wine estates will not allow a celebration/party on their estates as they are primarily wine tasting venues and not party venues. Thus, no birthday celebrations or bachelor/bachelorette parties can be accommodated on our service.

Tickets are collected at the ticket office on the day of your tour, tickets are not mailed.

Please be at the Ticket Office 15min prior to your departure time to collect your tickets. However, should you miss your departure time we cannot guarantee that there will be space available on any of the other time slots for the day.

The tour is a hop-on-hop-off tour which works in intervals of 1 hour each. You can stay at a farm for more than an hour (2 hours) but this would mean you will forfeit another estate.

Estate closures do occur, please make sure to check the itinerary and your confirmation.

To avoid disappointment, wine estate restaurant bookings should be made in advance and should coincide with the Wine Tram timetable. Due to the nature of the business conducted on the various wine estates, no 'bring your own' meals or beverages are allowed.

No refunds will be provided for unclaimed tickets on the day, please see our cancellation policy for more details.

Each departure can only visit a maximum amount of stops as indicated on the timetable for your tour.

Wine purchases that are made whilst in our service are to be handed in when embarking. Your purchases are to be handed to the conductor who will provide you with a sticker to track each item. Wine can be collected at our ticket office at the end of your journey. **For safety reasons it is not permitted to travel with your purchase/s.

Ticket transfers can be facilitated based on the AVAILABILITY of the requested new date and or time slot, however, we can only transfer the date and time slot ONCE, thereafter the cancellation policy applies. Transfers can only be done 7 days prior to booking by sending an email to info@winetram.co.za.

CREDIT CARD PAYMENTS
For credit card payments, this is a confirmation of the reservation of your booking only but not proof of payment by the bank.
On the rare occasion that there has been a technical issue with the bank process and payment does not go through, our system will automatically pick this up on the date of departure when you present your booking ID confirmation at our ticket office.
