    Excellent way to combine the usual wine tasting with something different and fun. I’d recommend the purple route if you want to spend more time on the tram. We had an excellent guide and so were able to personalize our trip to focus on things that interested us such as the galleries and buildings.

    It was a fantastic day out – we got picked up at the hotel and had a marvellous driver who told us about the region as we were driven to the wine reagion. We made an additional stop at the jail where Nelson Mandella was held en route – an added extra. We then had a fantastci day tasting the wines goin on the trams and bus sampling various vintages as we went along.
