This never disappoints, such a great day out! Don’t forget to go to Glenwood farm before sunset! Tour guides Robson and and Justin were fabulous. I wouldn’t come to the cape and miss this.

We chose the orange line for our trip and had earmarked 5 wineries and booked a picnic lunch in one of them. Really well organised. Knowledgeable tram guides about each place although you do feel they had to get through a certain spiel about each...More

Hi Nora, you can only do one route a day and they are not interchangeable. One route will take you the whole day if you choose to visit up to 6 wine estates. The views are absolutely beautiful on all of the routes.
