Overview
With three centuries of wine-growing heritage, the Franschhoek Valley is one of the Cape’s top wine areas—and the Franschhoek Wine Tram, a vintage-style tram, is the perfect way to explore. Travel in air-conditioned comfort from downtown Cape Town, then choose between the purple and orange lines. Besides an onboard wine tasting and narration, you have time to visit multiple estates on one of two lines.

We had an amazing experience on our trip, staff were professional and the views were stunning. It's a reminder to the ego how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. We loved exploring at Babylonstoren and had a great lunch at Backsberg.
