Perth and Fremantle Tour with Optional Swan River Cruise

Cottesloe Beach

Get a great introduction to Western Australia’s capital city on a packed, half-day sightseeing tour. After morning pickup at your hotel or a central meeting point, head to the lovely Kings Park Botanic Gardens for panoramic views of the cityscape. Stroll along the elevated Treetop Walkway for a glimpse of downtown skyscrapers peeking above the leafy canopy, and marvel at a 750-year-old baobab tree relocated here from the Outback.

Continue on by air-conditioned coach for a narrated sightseeing tour through central Perth. Listen to your guide’s onboard commentary as you drive past highlights including St Georges Terrace, historic Town Hall, the WACA cricket ground and an iconic riverside bell tower.

Next, head to the coast and enjoy a sandy stroll along famed Cottesloe Beach. Continue south across the Swan River to the historic seaport of Freemantle, where many original buildings were constructed by convicts in the 1880s. Admire the colonial landmarks and — if visiting on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday — browse community markets to pick up fresh local produce or unique knickknacks.

Midday, return to Perth’s Barrack Street Jetty via coach. Alternatively, upgrade to take a leisurely return cruise along the Swan River.

Not a lot of time in Perth, so this was a good way of seeing it.

Was fairly unimpressed with Perth until I went on this tour. Can now appreciate why people say it is one of Australia's beautiful cities

My trip was excellent. The staff were very helpful and I love hearing the history although I would had like more about the aboriginal history but I enjoyed what was delivered. I would recommend your tour to anyone I know that is visiting Perth. Thank you :

Fantastic tour. Our driver was extremely informative and new all the areas and history really well. Only downer was that we only drove past Cottlesloe Beach, would have loved to stop for at least 15 minutes to get some photos and breath in the salt air. Took the Swan River Cruise back which was relaxing.

We had a fantastic day on this tour. Very comprehensive tour of Perth and plenty of time left to wander around Fremantle for the afternoon. We went to the Maritime Museum and toured through an ex Aus Navy submarine, fantastic!! we opted for the last return to Perth on the Swan River - beautiful.

My husband I were visiting several places in Australia and decided to take the Perth City and Fremantle Tour with a Cruise down the Swan River, in order to see as many of the sights possible in a short time. We were picked up at one of the Hotels near to where we were staying, and then taken by Coach to Perth Harbour, where some people transferred to other Coaches, dependant on which Tour they were taking. The only hitch was that 2 ladies (in there 90's) had not transferred to the correct coach at the Harbour and we had to pull in and wait for another Coach to come and pick them up. Once this was dealt with, the Tour commenced without any further problems. The Driver/Tour Guide who was in his 70's, was very informative and entertaining. His driving was smooth and safe and he knew his route well. After seeing Perth we proceeded by road to Freemantle, which is a lovely Town, smaller in scale than Perth, with a great atmosphere and easy to get around. After a Tour of Freemantle, with the Driver pointing out various buildings and advising of their history, We stopped at a bus stop were we were issued with our Cruise Tickets.. There were 3 sailings that day. The Driver advised, that he would leave us to have a look around Freemantle for an hour then pick us up to take us to the Port, or we could stay in Freemantle longer and take a later Cruise, but we would have to get to the Port by ourselves. We decided to have a little longer and had lunch in one of the many cafe's and also took a long walk along the Port, which has more cafe's shops and also Micro Breweries, before boarding our Ferry to Perth. My only disappointment was that we took the Tour on a Monday and the town was a little quiet as the Markets only open Friday, Saturday and Sundays. Had we had visited on a Market Day, I feel it would have had a livelier atmosphere however, it did make it easier to be served, with no long waits for food.
