Full description

Sit back and enjoy the delights of a river cruise from Perth to the Swan Valley while sampling premium wines, cheese/biscuits, and morning tea. Not forgetting the informative and interesting commentary as the boat meanders its way up into the smaller reaches of the Swan River. Be met off the boat by your tour guide at Sandalford Jetty and be escorted to an air-conditioned bus. Continue visiting a selection of the Valley's best boutique wineries chosen for their ambiance and quality of wines. First, call at Windy Creek Estate, where tasting is held in their stunning new cellar door. Sample some of the best ports in the Valley (plus great red/whites) as well as relishes & jams from their Wicked Stepmother's range as an added bonus. Next, head to lunch at The Abbey at Heafod Glen Wines. Begin with a tasting of their extensive range of whites and reds then order a mail off the set menu with a glass of wine, beer or cider. You are welcome to revisit the cellar door after lunch to sample more of their range or just find a special bottle for yourself or someone at home. During the afternoon enjoy some cleansing beers at Elmar's Brewery, produce sampling at the Providore and delicious truffles at the Chocolate Company.

    Lovely comfortable cruise up the river with amusing commentary and plenty of wine to taste along with cheese and biscuits to help it down. Coffee and mini muffins also available at no extra charge. Good service. Our wine tasting tour from the Sandalfords quay was with Out & About wine tours, whose guide, Claude, went to great lengths to keep everyone happy and laughing throughout the tour. We visited three small wineries, a brewery and chocolate factory, with loads to taste and no obligation to buy. Highly recommended.

    Amazing day

    The cruise was beautiful, then Out and About tours was informative and took to delightful little wineries. I learnt about wine and tasted so many different varieties. Particularly great was Windy Creek Winery which has such delicious wines, friendly service, great prices and beautiful surround. Amazing day, good value for money and an experience to savour.

    Perfect way to "wine"-down after a busy week.

    My colleague & I searched for a tour to Swan after a week of work in Perth, as a closer alternative to Margaret River, as we had limited time and no car. We're so glad that we stumbled across this choice! The cruise up the Swan River was the perfect way to start the day with wine, cheese and charcuterie tasting and hilarious commentary from Captain Andrew on the way (who doesn't like drinking wine at 10:30am?) We jumped off the cruise to meet Claude, the owner of the bus tour and were warmly welcomed a small group of fun-seeking retirees. We picked this tour specifically for the range of 3 small boutique wineries, 1 brewery and chocolatiere that were promised and we weren't disappointed. Wine/beer/chocolate-tasting included at each location, a beautiful lunch to tide us through and no pressure to purchase product. Would highly recommend and am keen to try their other tours next time I visit Perth. Thanks for a great day out! :)
