We should have been better prepared for the weather… is was not possible to enjoy the wine tasting at the wineries as it was extremely hot and non of the wineries had Airconditioning

Saturday was one of the warmest days in a long time at nearly 38 degrees! Hope you liked the aircon in our motor coach on the way to and from Franschhoek as thats the only part we control.

Every aspect of the trip was amazing. However I felt that the time limitations of 40min per wine estate was a bit short to fully absorb each wine been tasted. But overall had an amazing experience.

Beautiful trip , lack of resources . Operators and guides were out of this world... brilliant brilliant

Beautiful trip, limited time. The first station where the bus drops us to take the tram, shortages of toilets only 1 toilet for over 30 people. We could not even support the small curio shop because we spent the whole time trying to access the toilet . Some of the wine estate were just too packed by the time they came to us for tasting it was just too late had to leave the wines we paid for. Suggestion, people who used the tram should have a specific area allocated to them because of time limitations.

Thank you for your review which we will pass on to the tram team. But to put it into context, you travelled during the busiest few days of the year, when all tourism products are under pressure, including the tram station and wine farms.

Wine tasting

So, the tour costs were just for transportation between the Winelands? The least you could have done was to at least include one or two tastings with the exorbitant price charged. No value for money.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
That's right. Exactly as we advertise it and still very good value for money given the infrastructure involved! If you feel its too expensive, you may what to try our more traditional wine region tour which has wine tastings included at the same price.

The trim was the best experience the Boschendal farm topped Them all. I would recommend it to someone else. The lessons about the wines was the best as a novice I now have an ideas of the wines I would opt for
