Discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley. You will be picked up from the beautiful Cape Town City Centre and enjoy a scenic drive to Franschhoek in the beautiful Cape Winelands - a place of picturesque vineyards, breathtaking scenery, warm hospitality, fine wines and cuisine, and a 300-year-old history. This is where your wine tram journey begins!

Experience a unique and leisurely journey through rolling vineyards in an open-side tram and open-air tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa's oldest and most distinguished wine estates in the renowned Franschhoek region, the wine and gourmet capital of South Africa. Franschhoek is home to a variety of cellars, from small boutique wineries to large cellars. You will have the chance to explore two wine farms with charming heritage and beautiful natural scenery and also enjoy two wine tastings. You can look forward to award-winning wines, such as plump reds, elegant whites and delicious sparkling wines, with the perfect accompaniment of excellent food (lunch for own account).

Your storytelling guide will also take you on a tour through Franschhoek village, sharing with you the fascinating history of the French Huguenots and the Huguenot Memorial Museum (museum visit for 2018 season only). You'll also learn about wine cultivation in the valley amidst unparalleled views of the valley and vineyards.

When the Huguenots first settled in the Franschhoek Valley more than 300 years ago, they brought with them their knowledge and traditions of wine-making and viticulture from their home country of France, transforming their Franschhoek surroundings into one of the most beautiful valleys around. This proud heritage is still evident today in the village and farms.

You will then visit Babylonstoren, a historic Cape Dutch farm dating back to 1692, boasting one of the best preserved farmyards in the Cape (Babylonstoren visit is for 2019 season only).

After your time in Franschhoek, you will be returned to the Mother City of Cape Town.
