This short drive is absolutely stunning with majestic views of the Franschhoek valley. The roads are well maintained for safe driving. There are designated stops for visitors to spend more time to view and appreciate the scenery.

Drove into Franschhoek from villiersdrop and it was quite windy. Stopped off in Mont Rochelle and the views down the valley was just stunning. Franschhoek is just beautiful and surrounded by mountains. Well worth a visit.

We did the scooter tour,and rode down part of the pass. The views from the pass over Franschoek are breathtaking. Be mindful of the baboons thst inhabit areas of the pass but well worth a trek up for the views

The drive through Franschhoek pass is stunning. We started on the Villiers side and ended in Franschhoek. The drive up to the pass was very interesting. The drive down to Franschhoek was nothing short of stunning. The vistas of the valley were world class.

Came across this by chance. Breathtaking views, stunning flowers, green hills. What a nice surprise. Do try to plan it into your route.

Spectacular views as you climb out of franschhoek. But take the time to go right over the top and wind your way right down to the reservoirs on the other side of the mountains. Plenty of people seem to enjoy doing this on a bike....More

All the answers above give the right response, it is a Mountain Pass not a package.
