Customer Reviews

It was a great day. the service of the staff was excellent. My family which included a 4 x year old, had a great time. he really enjoyed the tram rides and hoping on and off at different stops. - Antonio Santo


It was an amazing experience I am definitely coming back. Really had a great time with my fam :) - Sive Ntoni


Excellent way to see all the different vine yards and very well organised. Ticket office is not what we expected, small cabin set back off the high street. Tours were very efficient. Worth booking ahead for lunch, Leopards Leap was wonderful and an amazing setting. Would definitely recommend. - Paula Bacon


This was a fantastic experience with lots of laughs and lots of wine tasting. The guides were extremely efficient and made sure we got to the vine yards and were very helpful. The tram was fun as was the tractor ride to Rickety Bridge. The food at the vine yards was good and we need not have booked as there was plenty of spaces to eat . - Nigel Shields


Such a great experience, will definitely recommend it and do other lines next time we are in Franschhoek - Julie Smith
