It was quite a tight schedule and the only down side was I wish we had more time in Fremantle. Lunch was delicious!
It was our first time to Perth and we did the Lunch Cruise on our first day which gave us a fantastic insight into the Swan River and the beautiful city of Perth on it's shores, and it's history along with some lighthearted anecdotes of the antics of more recent citizens. The tram tour of Freo with local guide was also very entertaining and makes for a nice alternative off the water for a while. Then we were back on the ferry for a well catered lunch as we headed back to Barrack St Jetty. It gave us a terrific start to our short holiday and from it we were able to pinpoint some places we wanted to go and explore further in our hire car on subsequent days. We give it our 'Thumbs Up'. As for Perth it's terrific, but please see if you can do something about all the wind and sand!!!!

Very nice morning. The tour isn't that exciting but it is pleasant and enjoyable.
It was a wonderful trip with one exception and that was the way the tour guide on the tram would 'dis' nationalities from the Irish, English, American on to New Zealanders.
Overall very good, well looked after on cruise and very good lunch. Booking through Viator very smooth. Will use again. Observations include notice that no parking for duration of trip is available at Barrack St Jetty. Also Fremantle jetty very basic no sun cover no shade or shelter.

Great way to see the sights of Perth. Very relaxing and informative. Bonus of the trip was to see the dolphins swimming along the boat. Enjoyed the lunch as well.

Enjoyable. Very good commentary given by the captain of the cruise ship. Fremantle was nice too.

The cruise was excellent, great food, lovely views. The tram was a little disappointing as we didn't get any chance to get off and walk around. I know the scheduling for the ferry has been changed and it would have been good to have had 20 - 30 minutes in Fremantle rather than at the dock at the end where everything was shut.

The cruise was good but don't waste your time with the tram tour, you'd be better off walking around Fremantle, the food on the cruise back was very good.
The river cruise was enjoyable, the Tram tour was excellent with James giving a great commentary and keeping everyone entertained. The tram ride is certainly worth taking. Didn’t think much of the buffet lunch very disappointed and felt rushed. Didn’t think much of the parking after being lead to believe from a Viator staff member that there was plenty of parking, didn’t expect it to cost an arm and a leg. Certainly didn’t think much of Viator’s information beforehand. Our printed voucher or electronic voucher wasn’t accepted readily still had to queue up for tickets, the crew were helpful.
Swan river was exceptional The tour guide on the tram /bus had very dry jokes. the food shocking on the cruise it self.apart from that I had enjoyed it.
boat was clean, staff friendly commentary interesting. Tram man was fun !
The cruise is about 1h20mins each way. We had a very good commentary on the way to Freo, a lot of interesting details were mentioned. The tram ride in Freo was also lively due to our guide James who gave us a lot of information. One will notice the Aussie humor which made this trip worth remembering. Lunch on the return was well organized and the spread was acceptable. I would recommend this itinerary for first time Perth visitors.
Was good except the tram got a flat tyre so we didn't complete the tram ride completely as we had to get back to the cruise for lunch which was disappointing as we had visitors from uk with us who would have liked to have seen more of Fremantle.
It was friendly and relaxing. There was enough sightseeing information provided on the cruise to keep me interested. The driver on the tram trip in Fremantle was wonderful.
River cruise part of trip was good, food was fair. Tram tour was OK but the guide needs instruction in how to run a tour without putting his own political and racial slurs in his commentary.

I enjoyed it, but had covered much of it before. Fremantle tram trip different (because of the over-the-top guide) and good value, lunch extremely good.
The Tram (it was a bus actually tour could be made more exciting. A little more time to spend at the market will be good.
