Your day cruise starts in central Perth, where you’ll hop aboard your boat and set off up the Swan River, a scenic waterway that stretches from the city into Western Australia’s Swan Valley wine region. Enjoy morning tea on board, followed by a wine tasting of premium ‘wines of the month’ from regional vineyards, accompanied with Blue Cow cheese and biscuits.
As you listen to narration about the history and geography of the river and valley, admire views of Perth’s suburbs and the picturesque scenery outside the city. Hop off the boat at Sandalford Estate, where you’ll take a winery tour and watch a film presentation before enjoying a wine flight of six estate wines. During the tasting session, your 2-course lunch will be served so you try the wines with the food to decide which is your favorite to accompany your main course.
Finally, browse the gift shop for souvenirs or purchase any bottles you’d like to take home before reboarding the boat to cruise back to Perth.

Wonderful day. Great Wine and food at Winery was delicious. Nice food on the boat also. The young lady who sang and entertained us was very good. Worth the money.

Brilliant day- Starting with muffins and tea , followed by wine tasting and a cheese board . Arrival at the winery is started with an informative tour and followed by a tasty lunch and more wine tasting . The trip back was like a party boat - maybe the amount of wine had something to do with it ? The crew of the boat are friendly and talented ! I would thoroughly recommend going on this trip which was made even better by the great deal we got through Viator

Crew helpful, on board entertainment good. Sometimes direction from crew was a bit confused when groups were splitting up. But overall things went smoothly. Would reccomend a friend.

A great trip and and very informative. The cruise was fun, there was a lot of wine, the lunch was very nice and the entertainment was entertaining. We found that the red wines of the region are not so good and information is always a good thing. I would highly recommend this cruise to any marginally serious wine lovers and all those who just love to drink wine.

I had read some good reviews of this tour and we werent disappointed! What a great day! From the minute we arrived we were welcomed by Andrew, Alexandra, Colleen and Katherine. Coffee and muffins, followed soon by the wine tasting and cheese board, a lovely cruise down the swan river with Andrews commentary on the high spots. When we arrived at the winery the tour was really interesting, a beautiful place. we had a further flight of 6 lovely wines to taste followed by a wonderful 2 course lunch obviously all this food was necessary to ensure we didnt fall over from all the vino! Back to the cruise and afternoon tea, an open bar and wonderful singing from Katherine and Alex. The team worked really hard throughout the day but were so attentive and friendly. It really made our visit to Perth special and Id recommend the trip to everyone. Thanks so much

A great day out. We took family from the UK and they loved seeing the sights of Perth. The wine tasting was informative as well as delicious.
