Cape Winelands: Franschhoek Wine Tram launched

The Cape Winelands are known for its great wines, wine estates, for its culinary delights, the stunning landscape and its unique architecture. A fantastic new way to discover the beauty of the area is the recently launched Franschhoek Wine Tram. The Franschhoek Wine Tram is a combination of an open-side tram and a open-air tram-bus and runs daily tours through the Franschhoek Valley. The tours depart from (and return to) the Franschhoek Wine Tram ticket office, located in the centre of Franschhoek Village, and include six stops:
Passengers can hop-on and hop-off of at any of the six stops along the route and experience the activities on offer - wine tasting, cellar tours, lunches, or simply a stroll through the vineyards. A commentary guided tour, focusing on the history of Franschhoek and wine cultivation in the valley, and a complimentary wine tasting, are included. The Franschhoek Wine Tram operates daily from 10:00am to 3:20pm, with departures every 40 minutes. Ticket prices are R130 for adults, R65 for children 5 to 17 years of age, and no charge for children four years of age and under. Enjoy!
