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

Absolutely excellent service from start to finish and made sure we were well catered for! Fantastic value and I would not recommend another way to visit vineyards in Franschoek - Jonathan Lund


The wine tram is a lovely experience. The trams run on time & the staff very friendly. We had friends with us visiting from Sweden who where very impressed. Great job. - Keith


We visited South Africa for our honeymoon and the wine tram was on the top of our list of to do's. We had such a great day, we managed 3 stops as we wanted time to relax a little in each. The tram is such a great idea, wine tasting excellent and scenery just stunning. - Stephanie Wilson


Excellent service as always. - Roshnee Govender


Great experience. The tram is lovely and the staff is really helpful. We wished the ride would be longer and the wine pour in could be bigger. - Tobias F.
