While my wife and I were staying in Perth we went on a ‘River Cruise and Vineyard experience’ days outing. We started At 9.45 am with an approximately 2 hour cruise up the River Swan to Sandalford with Captain Cook cruises during which we had our first tasting of 4 swan valley wines. The cruise was excellent with a commentary of interesting information as we travelled up the river. When we arrived in Sandalford we were met by a coach to take us around 3 wineries in the valley. We started at the Windy Creek winery where we tasted several white, red, fortified and liquor wines. We then moved on to the Heaford Glen winery where we tasted more wines. After this we moved into the on-site restaurant where we had a large, wonderful platter of a mixture of fruit, cooked meats and cheeses together with a glass of wine of our choice from those that we had just tasted. We then moved to our last winery - Ugly duckling - where we tried more wines. our next port of call was the Chocolate factory where we sampled some yummy truffles and finally stopped at a cider factory called Funk where we could taste a cider from a large number of fruit ciders they produced Our coach driver Claude was very friendly and amusing and had a great knowledge of the Swan Valley wineries and other places we visited. He was amazing in that he got to know the names of all 19 in our tour group. Overall it was was a very pleasant day out and interesting to taste wines in family owned wineries. I would thoroughly recommend it to anybody. The cost of river cruise and tour of the wineries and lunch was well worth the 155 Australian dollars per person.

We had a lot of fun with Claude who has a huge knowledge about wine. First, you start in Perth with the "River Lady" on the Swan river for 2 hours with other groups. Then you will picked up by the smaller tour bus (max of 24) to visit 3 family owned wineries. You get a lot to taste. After the sweet end in the chocolate factory, the bus drops you again in CBD Perth in a good mood :-)

Excellent from the start to finish, great easy going boat ride, lovely air conditioned coach waiting for us and then the sparkling personality of the driver/guide - Claude.

Just enough wine tasting (and time at each place) spectacular meal with wine and light breeze, under a tree within a vineyard. Some more wine and a few German taster beers thrown in for good order. Light finger foods were supplied at all locations.

Lastly chocolates were the last stop, eat and much as you dare!

Overall great day, great tour group and the last word goes about Claude, great operator who knows how to herd cats with expertise. Strongly recommend this trip.

The trip up the Swan was great.Loved the staff the cheese platter and the tasting of nice I wine. The Vineyard trip by bus was disappointing . Windy Creek winery was good value wanting to introduce the wines as a valued tasting. In comparison Sittela winery to which I had visited before would only allow three wines for tasting. No other wines were available and out of the one red and one white you chose the glass that was to complement you platter lunch. I wanted my friend to try their Chardonnay which was declined. Had I come off the street as I have before, all these wines would have been available for tasting. There was a feeling of a prejudice because you were in a group for tasting. Even at Providore the Lady there didn’t want to give tastings of the chocolate liquor We were not intoxicated in any way and found this part of the trip disappointing.

Thank you for taking the time to review our River Cruise & Vineyard and we are sorry to hear you had a few issues with Sittella Wines and the Providore which we hope we can address; Just to explain....on the boat you are offered 4 wines (2 whites & 2 reds from the Swan Valley region) to sample, then at Windy Creek you have 17 difference wines to taste so by the time you arrive at Sittella for lunch you are offered 1 bubbles, 2 whites & a red (of which you choose a glass to have with lunch). After lunch you are welcome and instructed by the tour guide that you can wander back to cellar door to taste more wines if you wish. They don't offer any extra prior to lunch as the group has already had 26 wines! Though you certainly could have had more after lunch. At the Providore the chocolate liqueur tastings are complementary so we not sure why they didn't offer you any though will pass on your comments. We do hope we have explained the reasoning behind the extra tastings prior to lunch and sorry to see you didn't take up the offer to wander back into cellar door after lunch.

Wonderful day out from Perth. The boat ride offered a different view of the city with informative commentary and generous food and wine tasting. Once on the bus our enthusiastic driver and guide Jazzy took us to some out of the way vineyards ( Windy Creek a standout), plus a brewery and chocolate factory for balance. A good winery lunch meant no need for dinner! Recommended.

We’ve done Out and About before but this time we started with the Captain Cook River Cruise from Perth to Sandleford in the Swan Valley. Leisurely cruise with morning tea, wine tasting and a cheese plate then small number bus tour in the afternoon visiting a couple of vineyards, lunch and the chocolate factory. Highly recommend both Captain Cook and Out and About Tours.

The Out and About tour including both the river cruise and vineyard tour was the ideal way to spend the day in Perth. With enough free wine to sink a ship along with a delicious lunch, beer and chocolates, our tummy’s definitely weren’t empty! Claude was an excellent, multi skilled host - bus driver, waitress, wine and chocolate connoisseur as well as our personal tour comedian. Definitely recommend this tour!

Started the morning from Barrick St Jetty. Comfortably cruised up the Swan River, making new friends and sampling two whites and two reds whilst nibbling on cheese. Disembarked at Sandalford onto our bus. All up there were 16 of us plus CLAUDE - nice size group.

Well Claude kept as all entertained (face sore from laughing so much) and well informed on what each destination was going to offer. Felt very personal and I was amazed at how Claude rattled off all of our names after a moment of meeting us.

This trip was a Christmas present from my family and what a treat it was!

The best afternoon with Claude, he is cheeky and funny
We visited the smaller cellar doors to seek out the wines you would not normally find in your general liquor outlet.
My husband and I would highly recommend this tour.
Great value
