Customer Reviews

Franschhoek is truly a lovely town in South Africa and I highly recommend the wine tram experience. We were on the Red Team and had a great time. Our host while on the tram was great fun and very knowledgeable about the vineyards we visited. We did 4 in total and had a very leisurely lunch in Mont Rochelle, Richard Branson's beautiful place. My favourite of all was Le Dieu Donne for its fantastic scenery and its bubbles!! - Emer Gorey


Service on RED LINE was exceptional. The hostess was very welcoming and full of life. The routes were explained in good detail and the timetable was strictly adhered to. All in all a fantastic fun day. Highly recommended. - Aubrey Young


Very well organised, a thoroughly enjoyable day. - Tracey Donovan


It was a beautiful day out. Thank you - Maria Viljoen


We had such a great time. Our guide was wonderful and so energetic. I wish I could remember his name to give him credit where it is due but I do remember his voice so vividly telling us everything we need to know and more. The tour itself was beautiful, I just wish I could go again and have more time on the tram. - Annabelle Slabbert
