Swan Valley Wine Gourmet Wine Cruise from Perth
US$126.75
Overview
The riverside vineyards and family-run wineries of the bucolic Swan Valley make it a popular choice for wine tasting tours from Perth. This tour takes the scenic route with a leisurely cruise along the Swan River, onboard wine tasting, and a 2-course lunch and wine tasting at the Sandalford Estate.
What to Expect

Make your own way to the pier in central Perth in time for a 9:45am departure. Take your seat aboard the cruise ship and set sail along the Swan River, admiring the city sights from the water.

Head out of the city, listening to your guide’s live onboard commentary as you cruise through the Swan Valley wine region. Learn more about the region’s renowned wines and wine-growing traditions as you gaze out over the waterfront vineyards, then enjoy your first taste of Swan Valley with an onboard wine and cheese tasting.

Continue along the river until you reach the Sandalford Estate, one of Western Australia’s oldest wineries. Enjoy a guided tour of the historic winery, including a film presentation, then sit down to sample a selection of Sandalford’s prestigious wines. Taste six different varieties as you enjoy a delicious 2-course lunch, expertly paired to accompany your wine selection.

Have some free time to browse the gift shop or purchase wines before returning to your cruise ship for the return journey to Perth. On the way back, enjoy live onboard entertainment as you indulge in afternoon tea, including a selection of cakes and the final wine tasting of the day.

Your tour ends back in Perth.

We had a brilliant day on this cruise. The wine starts pretty early but they’re small glasses and you obviously don’t have to drink them if you don’t want to. The morning wines also come with cheese and meat and crackers to help you stomach...More
