Franschhoek Wine Tram

Leave your modern life, and car, behind when you take a trip on the charming and classic Franschhoek Wine Tram.

The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley – picturesque vineyards, breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, fine wines and a 300-year history.

Passengers aboard the hop-on hop-off tour will experience a unique and leisurely introduction to the Franschhoek Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards in an open-side tram and open-air tram-bus stopping at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates.

A combination of tram and tram-bus transports passengers around a loop of stops allowing them to hop off at each stop and experience the activities on offer, such as wine tasting, a cellar tour, lunch or simply a stroll through the vineyards. When they are ready they simply hop on to continue the tour.

The tour takes passengers right into the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, with a narration focusing on the history of Franschhoek and wine cultivation in the valley, and unparalleled views of the valley and vineyards.

Franschhoek Wine Tram currently offers four Franschhoek Village-based combination tram and tram-bus tours: Blue Line, Red Line, Yellow Line and Green Line. Each visits eight wine estates and showcases a different part of the Franschhoek Valley. A tram-bus only hop-on hop-off tour, Purple Line, visits seven wine estates in the greater Franschhoek Valley, about half-an-hour outside the village.
