“Fantastic views”
Review of Franschhoek Pass

Franschhoek Pass
Ranked #3 of 54 things to do in Franschhoek
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We drove the whole length of the pass and the views are magnificent, but even if you don't travel the whole pass it's well worth a drive from Franschhoek to see part of it.
Just watch out for families of Baboons on the roadside as you go around the bends.

Never been passed by more bikers on such a short drive. Great views and well worth the detour. I'll hire a soft top for this next time! Great photo stop above Franschhoek.

This is a town that host the best food and wine.Capetonians seem not to recognise this jewel.We had a great time and although the restaurants wine prices are steep,the stay is world class.Do view the town from the top of the pass.

The views are unbelievable and very different in winter. It is an absolute pleasure walking through the narrow main road and browsing through the little shops and famous restaurants this French town has to offer.

Amazing views but quite a hairy drive. Half way up there is a pull off where you can park and then walk down to swim in the mountain stream. A great way to cool off in the summer.
