Kitty was a friendly, informative and enthusiastic guide. Visited a good selection of 3 different types of wineries. A cheese board is supplied at 2 of them. The wineries are followed by a beer tasting with bread and dips which is then followed by a visit to an amazing chocolate shop for some tasting. A wide variety of food and alcohol tastings and everything was good quality, all for a very reasonable price - would highly recommend this tour.

Really enjoyed this day tour in the Swan Valley. Our guide, Keith was very knowledgable and the wineries we visited carefully chosen to give us the best possible experience. The lunch at Houghton and visit to the chocolate factory were both useful additions to the wine tasting and we got the chance to meet lots of interesting people during the day, especially as people were swapping in and out of different tours. Have recommended this tour to others.
