    I was very disappointed that this tour did not go into Franschhoek Village (why is this not mentioned in the details of the tour). In my opinion the only thing that really makes Franschhoek different from the other wine farm regions in the WC is the French village and we did

    Response from CSScpt, Director of Sales at Full-Day Franschhoek Wine Tram Tour from Cape Town
    Responded 5 days ago
    Thank you for your review. I am not sure if its a case of misinformation or not reading the marketing material? This tour is a hop on hop off tram tour around wine estates in the Franschhoek valley. It allows you to visit the wine estates. Visiting the french village is not really the aim of this tour. The tour does depart from the Tram station which is located outside the village. As regards the 2 lines you were offered - they visit the same estates in reverse order so should not have resulted in any problems to access the estates you wanted. I am sorry the tram staff were not friendly - the majority of reviews here suggest the opposite but we will feed that back to the tam folks to take the necessary action to ensure it does not happen again.

    Starting on an air conditioned couch from the V&A we arrived in Franschhoek in plenty of time to enjoy the tram and buses with knowledgable guides and thoroughly savour 4 wonderful tastings. Don’t miss Backberg and Boschendal on the way.

    The best way to see the Winelands. The scenery. The experience was magnificent. I am definitely doing this again. And thank you to Mandla our tram guide. He is brilliant! Also, I really suggest using a shuttle as you will probably be singing all the way back to CPT😜

    We booked the tour online and kept the barcode on the mobile. The trip was excellent and very well organized. Our tour guide Charles was very friendly and informative. I’m not a big fan of guided tours but this one is highly recommended!
