What people are saying about Cape Winelands

A great day out! The transport picked us up right outside our hotel and was punctual. The whole day was very well planned but left enough time to cover around 5 or 6 vineyards. I would certainly visit again and do a different coloured line to visit different vineyards

Brilliant way to spend a day hopping from one vineyard to the next. Each one is different and offers something unique. Loved the tram too.

Bus ride to Franschhoek was smooth ride. Staff at Franschhoek Wine Tram excellent. Tours on wine farms were the best. Best day ever

Friendly staff on the bus and the estates we visited. Awesome experience

It was an amazing day. Very professional and friendly
