Changes for Franschhoek Wine Tram

A purpose-built terminal that straddles the existing railway line will serve as a place where passengers can purchase tickets and enjoy a cup of coffee in a comfortable setting while waiting for their tour to depart. This move will have the added benefit of reducing parking congestion along Main Road as passengers will now be able to park in designated parking spots alongside the terminal. In addition to that, the ticket kiosk currently located in Huguenot Square will be moving to the tranquil grounds of the River Café, which is located on Main Road opposite the Franschhoek Tourism Bureau. From this location, a continual loop bus will ferry passengers to and from the terminal.

In an effort to bring more tourists to the village, Franschhoek Wine Tram has launched a two-and-a-half-hour village walking tour. This leisurely walking tour is led by a knowledgeable guide who will share interesting and historical facts about the village while visiting local points of interest which include an indulgent chocolate experience at Huguenot Fine Chocolates and a clay sculpture demonstration at Orgari.

This is a dramatic turnaround from the prior 6 months. Members of the public are encouraged to report any unsafe driving incidences to [email protected]
