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.

Customer Reviews

What an incredible experience. All staff were knowledgeable and friendly. - Anrika Joubert


Nice experience... - Göran Olofsson


Excellent! - Marie Fox


Doing the wine tram is one of the best experiences you can do! Professional and well planned routes stopping at the best wine farms. The guides are all friendly and helpful. The trams are always in great condition. The most difficult decision you'll have to make on the day is which farms you want to visit and how long you should stay. This is a must do experience! - Francois Malan


Best experience Great experience it was we were running late for our slot but the crew accommodate us and made it a point that we do not miss our in any of the wine farms listed for Purple line Friendly staff in general - Phumza Tolashe
