We booked the Blue line online - definitely recommended.This organisation made me proud to be South African. Very efficient, friendly and well organised. Allow a little more time to visit Rickety Bridge, and Grande Provence - it takes a while to get to the wine...More

The wine tram in Franschhoek is very well organised and a great way to visit a number of vineyards in a day. It allows you an hour, or two if you want at each stop. It's efficient, the staff are friendly and takes any hassle...More

We did the blue line - effortless if you book online and get there 10 min before departure. These guys run a smooth operation. Timing is perfect with an hr at each wine estate. It was a combination of travel by bus , rain and...More

Excellent way to visit multiple different wine farms. Most have some sort of snacks, cheeses and/or charcuterie and all are very well set up for your wine tasting experience. The wine farms are aware of the time restraints and are set up to feed you...More

My wife and I enjoy wine tasting especially if it is GOOD wine and not yesterday's production. The day was wonderful but not everyone starts drinking at 10.30am! Perhaps a walking visit to a vineyard should be included and for those not familiar with viticulture...More

This is a excellent concept delivered brilliantly. Each and every employee we encountered was super friendly, efficient and highly knowledgeable. The epitome of service mindset. The trams and buses run as precisely as Swiss trains! And you can meet a whole bunch of new people...More

What an absolute great experience we had on the Franschhoek wine tram !! Inexpensive to explore the beauty of the Franschhoek Vignerons. Trams are always on time and staff on the tram create a great vibe. An absolute must !!

Hi everyone, I've booked the 10am blue line but we'd like to have a picnic at Mont rochelle - it only opens at 12noon - which would mean 3 hours at the first stop on the route. It's not clear from the website or other threads if we could walk from one vineyard to another to try and catch up over the course of the day - meeting the wine tram at a stop further down essentially. Or are they just too far apart? thanks!

Dear Deborah W, Thank you for your question. I would strongly recommend emailing us to make a change to your current booking, I would suggest changing this to the 10:15am Green Line. The wine estates are not in walking... More

Hello, Can you please tell me what line we should take if we are looking to book dinner at Foliage? Is it possible to plan the day or half a day on the train with the option to plan for dinner at a specific time and place? Can you please also tell me if we were to book transportation through you from Cape Town and returning on the same day, what are the available times there and back. My husband and I are planning a visit for mid July. Thank you very much for your assistance. Shari & Christian
