Overview
Discover the delights of Swan Valley’s Food and Wine Trail on this tour from Perth. You have your choice of a morning tour, which features mostly sweet treats, and the afternoon tour that takes in more savory items. As you travel through the scenic wine region, stop at local wineries, breweries, chocolate shops, cafes and more for more than 25 tastings of everything from honey to coffee to cheese to, of course, wine. This small-group tour is limited to 16 people to provide a more personalized experience.
What to Expect
Your culinary tour from Perth starts as you board your coach for the drive northeast of the city into Swan Valley wine region. Visit 10 local shops and operations in the valley, such as Windy Creek Estate and Twin Hill Wines, Margaret River Chocolate Company and Windarra Honey. 

You have your choice of a morning ‘sweet’ tour or an afternoon ‘savory’ tour. See the Itinerary for full details on each tour and a list of possible stops.
