Customer Reviews

Special Thanks to our guide, Very friendly and helpful stuff. We enjoy our day,and definitely will be back again. - Inna Tur


It was time for our company's annual yearend function, and we decided on your wine tram experience. Everybody present had a lovely time. Just wished we had more time spend on the tram itself as the different estates was very closed to each other, but overall we had a lovely experience. Our tour guide was also awesome, big ups to Desne. Thank you again for hosting our group. - Hortec (Janobia)


We had an excellent time. Everybody enjoyed the whole day, our bus was perfectly on time,. the same with the tram. Our guide was great, helpful and very professional. We will definitely do this in future again on a different line. Great atmosphere on the bus and the tram. Welldone - Louise Visagie
