travelling around town and the wine estates, the best wine testing i've ever had just shows that there's more to Franschhoek that the beautiful surroundings!
Taking the Wine Tram is an excellent way to visit a number of wineries without worrying about tasting and driving. It's conveniently located in the town allows one ample time to savor one's wine or enjoy a meal as the tram passes each stop every 40 minutes.
The only disappointment was that the Huguenot Museum was not open on Sunday, so we missed this, but the wineries on the route were beautiful and the staff very helpful. Interesting concept of transportation-bus, tram, tractor, but TIA (this is Africa).
Tram and bus staff were so helpful and pleasant. This was the day after the floods when the service was disrupted due flood damage.
We were with a rather large group of swedes that took dominance over everything. They overbooked the tram a little that day so my husband and I had to walk after the tractor to Rickety Bridge and when we got there the Swedes had eaten all the cheese and then we had to wait an extra 20 mins for them...

Grand Provence The trip includes a bit in a small bus (think game viewing vehicle style with open sides) and a small stint... More
It was a cold wet day so we decided to take the wine tram and what a good choice it proved to be. The drivers were really cheerful and friendly and the route was well timed to allow you to see the museum and to stop for the tastings. The tastings were generous and it was lovely not to have... More
We organised a group of 15 of us to enjoy the day out around Franschhoek on the Wine Tram and had a great time. Our first stop was a bit short and our poor waiter was a bit stressed with the sheer number of tastings to present but we managed to get through all the tastings in the allotted time!... More
Whilst I loved the concept of the wine tram, you really only ride the actual tram for 2 of the 6 stops on the route. The 40 minute stops were too short for our group of 9, particularly given how busy the Franschhoek wine route was, however, an 80 minute stop was too long unless you're actually wanting to have...
