Quiet cruise down the Swan while tasting wine, complimented by a cheese board. Beautiful lunch at the homestead brewery. Over dose of wine, cheese and chocolate before finishing with a craft beer. Great day out. Don't eat breakfast

I enjoyed the boat most of all as a very nice way to see the sights on either side of the swan river while enjoying cheese and wine. The Hostesses worked very hard to keep everyone happy.

Was a bit seedy from the night before so was a bit reluctant to go, however it started of slow but ended up having a great time. The cruise down the river was great nice and relaxing lovely staff we had wine and a cheese board. Then onto the bus first stop lunch then stopped at about 4 wineries and a chocolate factory ended the day at a brewery it’s along day but a good day. Gets quite rowdy at then of the trip lolz was so much fun.

Totally enjoyed the cruise up-river, morning tea and cheese/wine tastings. Staff for both legs of the trip were absolutely incredible. HOWEVER - The sausage in my spicy sausage pasta was almost raw (very red) and there would have been insufficient time to send them back as you run on a tight schedule. We went to two wineries which each had their own problems. The first one was very hot as the fans were not working and we were not allowed in the air-conditioned area. The second one's amenities were disgusting, being attached to an old house. You couldn't swing a cat, never mind a rat (which I wouldn't have been surprised to see) in the toilet and then you had to use the laundry to wash your hands. The tub was full of jugs of some type of liquid, no soap and no hand-drying. I was glad we had no overseas visitors as it would have been very embarassing for them to consider this as standard Australian offerings. Both wineries offered cheese and biscuits, but three times in one day is a bit much. We then went onto a brewery which supplied plates of hot chips per group of 4, which was nice but a bit off-putting after the lack of sanitation at the winery. There are many wineries of very high standards in the Swan Valley, and I appreciate you wanting to support smaller family businesses, but you must assure they are meeting a reasonable standard. As always, the chocolate factory was a delight! We thought we had booked for the full trip including lunch at Sandalfords, but were told this was not the case. On review I can see where we went wrong, however when we called your office to discuss this at approx 10 am on Thursday 31 Dec there was no response. Via your site we could have upgraded for $30 per head, however Captain Cook wanted to charge us $60 per head which we felt was a bit much. Even if paying an extra $30 per head this would have been a much better option as it included desert and free glasses of wine on the return trip (which we had done before).

Hi Mary, I apologise for the late response - for some reason, the notification didn't come through to us. I'm sorry you were disappointed with some aspects of the tour. I will let the lunch venue about the sausage so it doesn't happen again. I don't know why your call went unanswered, unless we were already on another. We mostly work 7 days per week so someone would have been in the office, but only 1 person at a time. The upgrade through our site would have been for the cruise back to Perth, but the rest of the tour would have stayed the same. The Sandalford lunch is booked through Captain Cook Cruises which is why there was the difference in price. You would effectively have paid for 2 lunches as it would be too late for us to cancel our booking. On that tour, you don't go to any other wineries, the brewery, or the chocolate factory. Thank you for your feedback. Once again, I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the whole day Mary.

Great day from start to finish with a very informative cruise for 2 hours up the River Swan with of course wine sampling accompanied by a cheese board. We then disembarked for lunch with a beer or wine in a winery then on a small coach taking us to 2 vineyards 1 brewery and a chocolate factory all with samples at each stop. Our day was finished off by being dropped off in central Perth near our Hotel. A great day from 9.30 - 17.00

Oh what a wonderful day! Travel in comfort by boat and coach. Spent the morning cruising the Swan River, on-board our cruise, we enjoyed a morning tea and a mid morning wine tasting with cheese and crackers. Then onto our coach for a short distance to lunch. Then as scheduled, our coach brought us to the boutique wineries for wine tasting, with cheese platters included, 1 brewery for beer tastings, which was served with potato wedges to nibble. Our day ended with a tour at a chocolate factory for tastings of chocolates and a truffle. We were dropped back at a designated hotel. Eight hours of total enjoyment. Everything was delivered as presented. Great value and we highly recommend this all inclusive tour!! JUST GO!

The trip overall was excellent, however when we arrived we were told it was a one way trip and we would have to pay $38 for a return trip. The trip I booked was $150 per person and stated it was an 8 hour all day return trip, we paid the money on the day as this was a gift for my wife and sister in law. The ticket staff told us a line way trip booked through then would have cost $66 each. I would like to know why your one way trip would have been $150 each and why we had to pay an extra $38

We had a great wine tour of the Swan River Valley in Perth! The Captain Cook Cruise and wine tasting was very well done in addition we had tastings at three wineries after disembarking the boat as well as a visit to The Mash for a beer tasting and the chocolate store for a yummy truffle tasting. We were staying in Fremantle to leave the next day for a cruise and the train station was within walking distance from our hotel and the Quay where the tour disembarked. Great tour!

The river cruise was fantastic. The view and the weather was incredible together with wine tasting. After lunch, we went to 2 winery for wine testing, 1 brewery and 1 chocolate factory. The experience was fabulous. The only thing I didn't expect was the cruise was one way while the returning back to Perth was via the bus.
