We did the wine tour to Sandalford Winery and had a great day. The wines there were superb and the food was pretty good too. The crew on the tour were exceptionally friendly and helpful and they certainly helped make it a great trip.

The Swan Valley Wine Tour was an excellent way to enjoy the Swan River. The lunch at Sandalford Winery was enjoyable, incorporating a wine tasting . The highlight for me on the trip back to Barack St was the entertainment provided by Samantha. Great music to finish the day. We are locals but the tourists appeared to enjoy the day... More

Excellent value. If you are a photographer this is the cruise for you! There are photo opportunities throughout the 90 minute cruise particularly the return to Perth harbour as sun sets. The cruise starts with a journey up the Swan river with its sites of interest and returns across the harbour to view various aspects of the city as the... More

Took the river cruise back from Perth. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The views of theMillion Pound properties along the bank's of the river Swan were amazing. Some of the properties were worth in excess of 25million dollars. There is a bar in board, but if you want a tea or coffee, they are free. For a relaxing trip back from... More
