  • About 2 hours


Experience the real history of Franschhoek in a Private Tuk Tuk with your personal Tour Guide from Franschhoek. Our Tour Guide has a wealth of knowledge on our little town.

This 2 Hour Franschhoek Historical excursion will explain how Franschhoek came about.

Come and experience the true essence of Franschhoek.


All guests are to meet at the Dutch reformed Church situated on Huguenot Road, Franschhoek.

Looking for a good meal in a place with great vibes? . Well we found that here this weekend. Tried some of their micro brewery offerings and some of the best beer I have ever tasted.
Loved the way that the menu is divided into countries so they offer for every taste.
Will definitely be back when in Franschhoek again.

Nice and Mod! Friendly staff, great location. Food made up for the poor service. People stood up & left. We waited long for drinks... it was cold outside and the waiter was not sure if the heaters were in working condition. But the food = EXCELLENT! Atmosphere inside = great!

FANTASTIC! Tuk Tuk Franshoek is the best way to experience all that Franshoek has to offer. Our drivers were JJ and Francis - absolute gems! They were so knowledgeable about the area and very friendly. The Tuk Tuk's are very comfortable and a great way to spend the day zipping through the estates.
Would 1000% recommend

Great restaurant.

We used the TukTuk service as a group activity to drive us around in between wine tastings. The communication beforehand was already not as smooth as I had hoped; it was difficult to nail down the specifics, pricing was not very transparent etc. On the day itself it was rather chaotic too. We were dropped off at a wrong farm, TukTuks broke down and the timing of drop offs and pick ups was not really in line with the time it took to do the tastings. Nonetheless, our guests had a fun time while driving on the TukTuks and the farms we visited were really beautiful. The drivers are friendly, and it is a nice way to get around town safely while drinking wine. I would not do it again with a bigger group.
