This Franschhoek wine tram tour was so much fun! I recieved this voucher as a birthday gift and my friends and I went to four different wineries and enjoyed tastings at each. My two favourite wine estates visited on the tour were Eikehof and Rickety Bridge. I bought bottles of wine to take home at both locations and can't wait to enjoy them! One of the best parts of the day was rose ice cream at Rickety Bridge! Overall -totally recommeneded! (Probablly best to have a hearty breakfast before you go. If you need to grab a bit there's great Cafe right by ticket booth check-in where you can enjoy something to eat before you start a day of wine tastings.)
You could certainly do this trip a few times and still go again. On our trip we visited 4 different wine estates (Eikehof, Chamonix, Dieu Donne and Rickety Bridge) out of a maximum of 5 on the day, but we could have stuck to 2 or 3 and still had plenty of wine. The tasting portions are very generous and there was no pressure selling from any of the farms we visited. The tram / bus is an experience in itself and the vineyards provide a great setting and excellent value. I've spent a lot of time in Cape Town and this seems great for both locals and tourists.
This was by far my favourite day on our trip to Cape Town - even though it's in Franschhoek! The whole experience is organised with utmost precision and went so smoothly. We visited Eikehof, Chamonix, Dieu Donne and Rickety Bridge on the Red Line, with plenty of time for wine tastings and lunch. This is a fantastic experience that everyone must try!
