I had I wanted tickets (3 adults, 1 child) for a one-way trip from Perth to Fremantle. Instead, I was charged for a return trip. The mistake was discovered when I presented my voucher at the ticket office.

If you wanna experience the true beauty of the waters and skyline of Perth city, take this tour. It will worth all your cents. It starts from the city centre and ends at Fremantle so it's like cruising the whole of Perth city without the traffic jams on the road and continue to enjoy the sights in a very comfortable seat. If you have very limited time in Perth, this will make your short trip more memorable and enjoyable.
