Get picked up at your hotel or other accommodation in central Cape Town and transferred to the scenic Franschhoek Valley in the heart of the Cape Winelands.

Climb into the Franschhoek Wine Tram to ride through this beautiful countryside, with picturesque vineyards and historic wine estates. The tram operates on a loop, with frequent stops at wineries so you can hop off at any time to go on a wine cellar tour, enjoy a wine tasting, take a walk through a vineyard, or get a bite to eat for lunch (own expense). When you're ready to continue your tour, just hop back on the next tram.

During your wine experience, learn about the history of the French Huguenots who settled this area more than three centuries ago. Hear about how they established vineyards and wineries here based on their knowledge of French wine-making. Today, the wines of the Franschhoek Valley are unique representations of South Africa's viticulture traditions.

Sample robust reds and sparkling whites. Visit large wine estates and small wineries. Eat in one of the many well-known restaurants in the area. How you spend your time is up to you. At the conclusion of your day, you are returned to Cape Town.

Please note: Two wine tastings are included in this package. All other food and drinks are at your own expense.

It was a fantastic day out - we got picked up at the hotel and had a marvellous driver who told us about the region as we were driven to the wine reagion. We made an additional stop at the jail where Nelson Mandella was held en route - an added extra. We then had a fantastci day tasting the wines goin on the trams and bus sampling various vintages as we went along.

Excellent way to combine the usual wine tasting with something different and fun. I'd recommend the purple route if you want to spend more time on the tram. We had an excellent guide and so were able to personalize our trip to focus on things that interested us such as the galleries and buildings.

We NEED to talk about this tram: You sit on the tram, it takes you to wine. You get back on the tram, it takes you to more wine. FOREVER. An absolute perfect start to our South African adventure - Super was the name of our guide: a very well-informed, articulate and affable man who made excellent company. I can not recommend this venture into the wine countries enough - gorgeous views, gorgeous wine, gorgeous weather!
