Definitely not worth the long day
Margaret River Food, Wine & Sightseeing Tour from Perth | jan 2020
I had high expectations after reading the reviews for this tour, but was disappointed. The guide/driver, Graham, really seemed like he wasn't happy to be there. Very little information was provided. Sometimes we would stop somewhere and Graham would open the door to let us out and not say anything. He would be better suited as a silent cab driver than as a guide. Guides need to have A-type, outgoing and friendly personalities.
The timing of stops seemed odd. There was no need to spend 35 minutes at the jetty and then 30 minutes at some rocks by the ocean and then only have 10 minutes at the actual town where the guide went to gas up. More free time in the town and less time at the ocean stops would have been nice, considering we couldn't go swimming.
As for the river that this tour is named after: It doesn't exist. It's just dirt. We drove over a bridge at one point and looked out and saw no water. We saw a little bit of it near the ocean, but it was so low it didn't even connect to the ocean and looked more like a pond.
I enjoyed the wine tastings, however the wines weren't very good. Personally, I much prefer Italian, French, Greek, South African, and Californian wines. However, the staff at the first place vineyard we stopped at were great. We also had a nice lunch there.
Overall, this tour isn't worth the money or the ridiculously long day.
