Highly recommend the wine tram! It was a great experience. The company is very well organized and provides a great service to those looking to visit several wineries in one day!

Great way to spend an afternoon. Make sure to try and make the earlier trams as you have more of a variety to choose from Would highly recommend

we did the "red line" and it was really fun - I would say "Tuk Tuk stellies" in stellenbosch was actually a more fun experience but this was good none the less.

Take advantage of this charming adventure for a day of no driving and memorable experiences. The ride is lovely, the other guests fun, and the winery selection terrific.

Excellent day out on the wine tram. The scenery is unbelievable, and the wine tasting itself is great. Tour guides were hospitable and knowledgeable at every stop. Would strongly advise anyone to take the trip out there and have a day on the wine team.

What a great way to visit the wineries. Using the tram means no driving so you are free to sample as much wine (and there are dozens of wineries to choose from) as you want. A friendly and efficient service too!

I don’t think it really matters which line you choose since the tasting experience will be as individual as you are. All I can say is that I think Maison does a brilliant Shiraz, Mon Plaisir had some really good reds and... More
