      Disappointing Experience
      Pretty disappointed with the trip overall. The cruise to swan valley was lovely with the exception of there not being enough morning muffins for our group. Perhaps this was down to other guests being overly greedy. Other than this there was plenty of food provided throughout the tour and it was all lovely. The main disappointment was with the actual wineries. Firstly I will say, it was not a ‘small group to ensure a personalised experience’ as advertised. There was easily 30 people at the wine tasting. The lady giving the tasting at the first winery was not particularly friendly and mumbled through a rough description of the wines before everyone rushed through tastings. The second winery was slightly better but again lacked that intimate experience and more detailed descriptions of what you were tasting. It also felt pretty rushed.

      Swan Valley half day trip
      2 winery stops were quite pleasant, the chocolate factory and providoor stop was very rushed and only had 20 mins to complete both, as a result did not get to have a look in the chocolate factory. This was dissapointing. The cruise back along the swan river was excellent with nice afternoon tea and great entertainment by the staff.

      Super Singa long
      This is a wine cruise but it isn’t the wine tasting on the boat that makes it. Great Skipper and wonderful female staff in Jess and Lauren, who have fantastic voices and got the whole boat singing on the way back. Sandelford is truly amazing with great wines and a really pleasant lunch, we thoroughly enjoyed our day thanks to everyone involved. I’d have given a 5 star review if the wine on the boat was good but it was not and therein was a disappointment.

      Worth the money, great tour
      It was an amazing trip with lots of great wineries(my fav was windy creek) and good food. Our bus driver(Micheal) was a great person to have us and take us around to all the great places and was quite knowledgeable and friendly as well

      Taste of the Swan Valley with Wine
      What a great way to spend a day sitting back relaxing, enjoying the views, sampling wines, have cheese and bickies and having a splendid lunch. Took off from Perth and enjoyed the city skyline and beautiful landscape along the river. Lunch was at the Homestead Brewery and the meals were huge. After lunch off to Lancaster winery for some more wine tasting and cheese and then to the Margaret River Chocolate factory were you were in chocolate heaven. Back on board for more drinks and some fantastic singing by Aisha who has a great voice and entertained us as we sailed back to Perth. Highly recommend for a great days outing

      Totally do it again!
      Great from start to finish. We took the indulgence package. The staff were amazing, the food, wine and cheese platters were faultless on the cruise. The only meh part was what was ordered for lunch, it stated chicken salad what was received was a bowl of spinach leaves and some chicken. Nothing else, no other salad in the bowl. There was so much to choose from at the chocolate factory I almost walked out with nothing bit like browsing Netflix, couldn’t choose. But sooo yummy. The entertainment on way home was perfect those girls know how to sing. All in all yes go on this cruise totally worth it.

      Idyllic day in the Swan Valley
      We had the most amazing day on this trip. I took my friend and her two girls who are on holiday from the UK. We started with a cruise on the Swan River followed by lunch at the Mandoon Estate. We then got on a bus and visited wineries, chocolate factory and a brewery. We were so well looked after with so much to eat and the opportunity for lots of tastings. Loved the different places we visited which were small, bespoke and gave fabulous service. The whole experience was enjoyed by everyone and I would definitely recommend.

      Super experience
      Fantastic half day tour. 40 bus ride to first winery at Mandoo to sample half a dozen lovely wines. Then onto Lancaster winery for more of the same plus cheese boards. 3rd stop was at a chocolate factory with more samples than I could manage. The 2 hour boat trip back to Perth was filled with tea and cakes followed by a generous open bar. Absolutely worth the money

      Very enjoyable
      The half-day tour didn't start well as the bus missed picking us up in Guildford (we were at the appointed spot in good time) and by the time this was rectified we were already behind the rest of the tour at the first stop. However, we caught up the the tastings and really enjoyed the 3 contrasting vineyards we visited; one large, one smaller and one more rustic but all with some interesting and varied wines. Chatting to the staff in each venue was wonderful, as their passion for the products shone through. The supply of wines was plentiful with food accompaniments being offered also. The brewery and its beer was OK, but it would have been better to have seen the brewery itself not just a bar area. The chocolate stop was a bit pointless and some of the other guest spent their time in the distillery next door, which would have added value to the trip which was $90 per person and just about worth it. A really enjoyable afternoon was had though.

      Value for money but rushed
      Good value for money with all the inclusions however the wine tastings felt very rushed. Only about 25-30mins at each place and felt like we sat down and then got up again. Boat tour with Captain Cook cruises at the end was fantastic! Awesome crew and afternoon tea!

      A raucous drunken trip
      The early morning part had nice views. The Captains commentary was very bad. The wine tasting started early and by 11 lots of people were drunk. The ship was fully booked and as the day progressed a lot of people were getting louder, drunker and the passengers were dancing in the isle. The Captain had trouble controlling the ship and at one time it ran aground. Then the crew started singing, 2 girls. Both sang flat and it was painful. I couldn’t get off fast enough. A shocking day.

    This was a trip of 6 parts, initially a coach trip (minibus) with a fantastic, funny and knowledgeable driver 5/5.
    Part two at the sandlford winery, brilliant wine presented by a brilliant guy, 5/5
    Part 3 at the Lancaster winery, rushed through the tastings and the only info presented was, this is ....type of grape. The wine was excellent which helped the score 3/5
    Part 4, lunch, excellent service, delicious food and a great accompanied wine, 5/5
    Part 5, the Mandoon winery and cheese tasting, again the wine tasting was rushed with very little information and way too many people for the amount of cheese supplied 3/5
    Part 6 , trip back on the Swan River, amazing journey, the wine flowed more than the river, ace crew, 5/5

    This trip was exceptional value for money and such a good day out. We chose to go on the coach then boat return. We visited 3 wineries enjoying a wide variety of wines and fizz (all delicious 😋) lunch was included as well as a stop at a chocolate factory. We were entertained on the boat by members of the crew staff along with more inclusive wine and cake. Nothing negative to say!!

    My fiancee and I had a most wonderful day. The day and venues were extremely well chosen and organised. Our tour guides were extremely knowledgeable of the Swan Valley area and it was a pleasure to learn surrounded by like minded people. Nothing was too much trouble with the organisers. The food was beautiful and choices supeb. The tastings were fantastic with many different fluids to tempt the taste buds. THEN the extreme coffee hit to get us on our way back to Perth via a beautiful River Cruise. The staff were fabulous and the very talented singer was an added bonus. What staff.. Great.. Beautiful relaxing cruise back to Perth.. Lovely.. Thank you to all.

    The tour is described as a small group experience where you "travel with a small group of 9 people or fewer". This is simply NOT TRUE! On the day of our tour which was a weekday, there were 14 which made the wine tasting experience a bit crowded. Our guide told me they can get as many as 23 on a single tour on the weekends. This would be fine as long as you know what you are getting into when you sign up. The information on the TripAdvisor website about the size of the tour group is simply untrue and blatantly deceptive.

    Great day. Morning spent cruising the swan river, onto bus, lunch then 2 boutique wineries for wine tasting and cheese platters included, 1 brewery for tastings with potato wedges included to nibble on and then onto the chocolate factory for tastings of chocolates and a truffle. Were dropped back at hotel. 7.5hours of total enjoyment. Keith was our bus driver who was a delight. Great value and highly recommend it.

    A wonderfully organized tour. My wife an I live in Perth and were lucky enough to win this tour in a raffle. Thank you Keith for the very informative bus ride thru Perth and Guildford. Live in Perth all my life and you provided some very interesting facts that I never knew about Perth and the Swan Valley region.

    The wineries were of top quality and so was lunch. Never felt rushed but fitted so much into one day.

    The river cruise back was also fantastic. A great way to finish the day.

    Highly recommend this tour to any visitors to Perth or people of Perth that are looking for a really nice way to spend a day. Just leave the kids at home. :-)

    My wife and I did this tour. The bus guides are helpful, informative and engaging.

    The vineyards and tastings were excellent, good measures and interested staff.

    It’s a great way to spend a day. Lunch was good quality and guess what; yes, mire wine!

    We were in the bus tour but asked if we could come back by boat. No problem; just paid the difference. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful and ‘can-do’.

    Couldn’t recommend more highly. Go try it!

    Captain Soren was informative in his talk, Jess & Lauren were awesome in singing! That was a pleasant surprise indeed! Maggie was awesome!

    Whole boat turned into a nice day party venue when the girls started singing!

    Crew was overall friendly, professional, and they definitely deserve a pay raise!!

    Best wine tour I've been on!

    We signed up for the Guildford tour followed by 2x wineries, the chocolate, and the River Cruise back to Perth. I don’t recommend the Guildford tour on Monday or Tuesday (when we went) because many stores are closed. Still, it’s a quaint town. Our tour went to two wineries, one quite fancy, the other quite earthy, both very good. They were generous with the tasting and we had a lovely cheese plate at the second one. Then, chocolate insanity at Providore. Finally, and the best part, was the leisurely Swan River boat trip back to Perth. Two words: open bar. Two more words: great singer. Two final words: much fun. This thing was a tad touristy and cheesy, but it was a perfect good time.
