Overview
This half-day tour is the perfect way to experience Perth's beautiful Swan Valley & River, in one perfect afternoon. Your friendly driver/guide will pick you up from Perth and in just 30 minutes you will be a world away, in Western Australia’s Swan Valley. Known for its exceptional cuisine and beautiful wines. On the way you will tour through the pretty heritage listed town of Guildford.

Visit 2 boutique wineries for wine tastings with a shared cheeseboard at Lancaster Winery. Then get your chocolate fix with a handmade chocolate truffle at the famous Margaret River Chocolate Company (in the Swan Valley) and sample more treats like jams, relishes, olive oils right next door at The Providore. You can even try their amazing chocolate liqueur!

In the afternoon, hop on board the cruise and enjoy a delicious selection of cakes. All-inclusive wines are waiting for you and live entertainment follows as you cruise the beautiful upper reaches of the Swan River back to Perth.

Thank Terri for such a well organised, informative and relaxing afternoon. We are still enjoying the wines from Lancaster Winery and the cruise back to Perth was excellent. I thought this was good value.

My daughter surprised me with this tour in December 2019 and we had a lovely afternoon visiting some excellent wineries as well as trying some excellent local produce. We really enjoyed the cruise back along the river. We would recommend this tour and will visit the area again

The wine tour and river tour were almost 2 tours for the price of one. The highlight was the boat staff who sang on the trip back to downtown Perth. They were extremely talented and entertaining and I would be amazed if they don't have huge careers ahead of them as vocalists.
