Fun day ended with a beautiful cruise. The entertainment in the cruise was enjoyable. No food offered so that was a downer.

Lee_H, Dec 2020
A pleasant trip east of Perth out in a small van, stopping at a large and a small winery for tastings (and buying). Return via the riverboat is a very leisurely way to see a bit of the western Australia countryside.

Fun bus trip and informatative host

Thanks for an awesome day. The bus trip bus great and our host was lovely and kept us entertained the whole trip. The only let down, was there was no commentary of points of interest on the boat journey home. Great day over all.
Disappointing
Terre_W, Aug 2019
The best part of this tour is the cruise home along the Swan River. This is not a true wine and cheese tasting tour. 2 small plates of cheese for 35 people and a few crackers is not cheese tasting. You were lucky to even get a piece of cheese as plates were placed on a table and it was help yourself. Never have we experienced such a disgusting experience called ‘wine tasting’ in our lives. People serving wine were yelling at you telling you what you were drinking, if you could understand them. There was little information about the wines and how they are made, or age, climate, soil, taste etc. At one place, and we only went to 2 wineries, the lady serving virtually ran the bottle along glasses, which we were told “put them on the bar or you miss out”. We wished we hadn’t paid any money for this tour. Our driver was grumpy and wouldn’t answer questions until everyone was on board the bus - we were waiting for one more person. Absolutely bad promotion of Swan Valley and would not recommend others do this one.
Response from Host, Aug 2019
I'm sorry you did not enjoy your experience with us. We experienced extremely busy period with the Blediscoe Cup last weekend and all venues were pushed to carry out wine tasting in a timely matter before the boat departed. When it is a big group it is difficult to give a speech over the chatter, but they are more than happy to answer questions during the pour for those who are interested. I believe the driver was delayed (and perhaps unable to answer your questions) because he was trying to find the last person to board before leaving the city. The guides like to have everyone on board so they can give the information to everyone at the same time and answer any questions then. Normally we receive extremely good reviews on this tour with the generosity of the cheese and wine as well as chocolate on offer.
Great day out!

The bus drivers were great, the wine interesting, the boat trip back to Perth a dream! Met new friends, purchased some very good wine, i took with me a friend from Chile and Ghana and they could not wipe the smile off their faces. Proud to show off this part of Western Australia and the kind people who live here.

What a lovely experience. The wineries and chocolate tasting were great but the the highlight was the river cruise. Stepped on board to a lovely afternoon tea and then local wines but then, one of the staff starts singing and has an unbelievable voice and stage personality. So unexpected. Great staff who make it a real experience. Well done.
