Words: Crush | Photography: Supplied

Take a trip to the wine country and enjoy one of Franschhoek’s famous tourist attractions – the Franschhoek Wine Tram. The hop-on-hop-off wine tour takes you through the spectacular Franschhoek valley, taking in the exquisite vineyards and beautiful surroundings and stopping along the way so that you can try some world-class food and wines.

A tramline, which lay dormant for more than a decade, transports you through the magical wine valley, a perfect way to spend your weekend. Whether you’re a tourist from abroad, or a local touring your own country it’s a fun and safe way to experience a number of the area’s most prestigious wine farms. Sit back and relax as you journey through the vineyards in an open-sided tram and open air tram-bus which stops at some of the country’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates, hopping on and off as you please.

Take as much time as you chose at each destination, be it for a wine tasting, a cellar tour, or a leisurely lunch. Just make sure you know when the next tram will be coming by to pick you up again! The whole tour is narrated by a cheerful and informative guide and includes complimentary tastings at selected wine farms.
