      Fabulous Wines!!
      the wine tour was fantastic! Our guide was exceptional! We visited four wineries which included 3 boutique and one larger winery. The Hosts were fabulous! The wines we tasted were lovely everything from whites to Reds and some fortified wines - it also included cheese tasting and lunch. The lunch venue was lovely with a choice of lunches and wines (if you desired). A trip to a brewery and chocolate factory rounded out the day.

      Great Day Out
      Absolutely great day out, Claude is a great guide couldn't of asked for anyone better. His knowledge of the area and wines together with his sense of humour made the day. Family of 4 from 50 to 80 and the other two men that were with us on the coach made it a memorable day. Would recommend 200%

      Wonderful experience and fantastic guide ⭐️
      Had a brilliant time on this Swan Valley winery tour; we visited 4 vineyards and tried some excellent wines, as well as a trip to a chocolate company and a beer brewery! Our tour guide Claude had a great sense of humour and kept us all in good spirits, but he was also very informative, providing info on the history of Swan Valley and the wines they produce. Fantastic experience overall and I could not recommend this more, it’s a must-do if you’re in the area!

      A fantastic wine experience
      This was such a great tour, plenty of wine tasting, along with cheese. The different places were very informative. We visited a chocolate factory and had chance to taste the delicious chocolates, we then headed to a brewery which you got to taste a drink of your choice from a menu. You could buy the wines & chocolates as you visited each place. The lunch was delicious and our guide Claude was just fantastic he got to know each of you and his sense of humour was brilliant, he made it a trip to remember for lots of reasons, we had a great crowd of people on our tour too and had many laughs with all. Thank you for a very enjoyable day x Heather

    The trip up the Swan was great.Loved the staff the cheese platter and the tasting of nice I wine. The Vineyard trip by bus was disappointing . Windy Creek winery was good value wanting to introduce the wines as a valued tasting. In comparison Sittela winery to which I had visited before would only allow three wines for tasting. No other wines were available and out of the one red and one white you chose the glass that was to complement you platter lunch. I wanted my friend to try their Chardonnay which was declined. Had I come off the street as I have before, all these wines would have been available for tasting. There was a feeling of a prejudice because you were in a group for tasting. Even at Providore the Lady there didn’t want to give tastings of the chocolate liquor We were not intoxicated in any way and found this part of the trip disappointing.

    Thank you for taking the time to review our River Cruise & Vineyard and we are sorry to hear you had a few issues with Sittella Wines and the Providore which we hope we can address; Just to explain....on the boat you are offered 4 wines (2 whites & 2 reds from the Swan Valley region) to sample, then at Windy Creek you have 17 difference wines to taste so by the time you arrive at Sittella for lunch you are offered 1 bubbles, 2 whites & a red (of which you choose a glass to have with lunch). After lunch you are welcome and instructed by the tour guide that you can wander back to cellar door to taste more wines if you wish. They don't offer any extra prior to lunch as the group has already had 26 wines! Though you certainly could have had more after lunch. At the Providore the chocolate liqueur tastings are complementary so we not sure why they didn't offer you any though will pass on your comments. We do hope we have explained the reasoning behind the extra tastings prior to lunch and sorry to see you didn't take up the offer to wander back into cellar door after lunch.

    An informal and “chill” tour which started of with a 2.15 h boat trip with impressing views of bird and nature. We saw playing dolphins, a number of pelicans two black swans while served wine tastings.

    We meet Claude our driver and the rest of the participants who got there by train or picked up earlier by coach in Perth. A fantastic 9 member group in age from 20-75.

    We enjoyed the quality of the tastings with variety from serious wineyards with high renomme to brewery and excellent chocolate.

    The logistics worked very well and Claude made the group become familiar and socialised.

    We, Scandinavians, got a lot of goods tips from our fellow group participants who either came from areas we like to visit in Australia or were true globetrotters who told stories and experiences from all over the world.

    Great tour which we recommend (although remember even if the tour guide hold excellent skills to get people to belong it’s always the group members responsibility to actively take part and engage)!

    Our driver and Guide, Claude, made the tour interesting, funny and enjoyable and he maintained his attention to everyone all through the day. He kept everyone involved and communicated info about the vineyards and surrounding areas with humor and noteworthy tidbits.
    The cruise provided an initial tasting experience, and based on previous experience, we were not expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised, the Sauvignon blanc and Shiraz being the 2 outstanding wines. At the 2 Vineyards, Windy Creek stood out as having the better tasting wines, their Shiraz (2014) is outstanding. Excellent lunch at Heaford Glen after tasting their wines
    Margaret River Chocolate Factory was an indulgent after lunch stop, then a craft brewery to end the day.
    Well done Out and About Tours - well worth the time for those strapped for time.

    A wonderful way to spend a day and see another side of Perth. Started off by meandering down the Swan River in a boat with great commentary on local history and current events by the captain. Then switched to a van with our most incredible driver, entertainer, and wealth-of-knowledge guide Claude, who took us to two wine tastings at boutique wineries (they don't mass distribute so buying a bottle makes a special gift and the wines were delicious) followed by a generous and tasty lunch with more wine, next stop a brewery, and finally to a Margaret River Chocolate Company store with gobs of everything chocolate. Great day. Highly recommend.

    Excellent from the start to finish, great easy going boat ride, lovely air conditioned coach waiting for us and then the sparkling personality of the driver/guide - Claude.

    Just enough wine tasting (and time at each place) spectacular meal with wine and light breeze, under a tree within a vineyard. Some more wine and a few German taster beers thrown in for good order. Light finger foods were supplied at all locations.

    Lastly chocolates were the last stop, eat and much as you dare!

    Overall great day, great tour group and the last word goes about Claude, great operator who knows how to herd cats with expertise. Strongly recommend this trip.

    The wines and snacks served on the river cruise were very good. The pace of the whole tour was relaxed and easy for all ages. We had an obviously very experienced guide, Cloud, who easily remembered everyone’s name, took care of everyone’s lunch choice ( good quality, generous portion lunch)…. Though the wineries we visited were probably better suited for beginner wine tasters, the trip was just joyful overall.

    Had a fabulous day on “the best of both worlds” tour & it lives up to its name.. river cruise was great, staff were fantastic & the tasting of wine & cheese platter was well done & a great way to see Perth & surrounds. Once at Sandalwood winery we were collected by Claude for the bus tour, two great boutique wineries, chocolate tasting & brewery, although would have been nice to have tasted at Sandalwood. However the highlight of this trip is our guide Claude who was entertaining & just amazing how he remembered everyone’s name and adds so much to this experience.. only disappointment was the risotto at lunch, choose something else, but a very small thing on what was a fabulous way to do on our last day in Perth - would highly recommend this tour!!

    If you have a day spare in Perth this river cruise & wineries tour will tick all the boxes. Leisurely 2 hour cruise up the Swan River with wine tasting & cheese platters. Then transfer to air con mini bus & start to party. Our guide/driver Claude was fun & entertaining making you feel like a special guest. He took time to get to know everyone. We went to a couple of wineries for tasting & then a gourmet lunch at The Abby. Followed by Margaret River Chocolates with plenty of tasting. Ending tour at a Micro Brewery. And then Claude dropped us back at our hotels. Very enjoyable day.

    Wow, what an experience, the winery experience was top notch, going to the smaller wineries within the Swan Valley made it even more special… Especially loved the Windy Creek Estate selection.
    Lunch was special too, food & great company really made the day even better.
    Our tour guide Claude was amazing, his friendly demeanour & knowledge of the region made the trip so good.

    Having a couple of wines served on the ferry prior to being introduced to Claude was definitely a great idea. I think it probably helped us all appreciate his humour from the get-go. As good as the staff were on the ferry, Claude really makes the day with his knowledge of both the product and history of the area. Although my wife doesn't drink and I am not a big wine drinker we thoroughly enjoyed the day, especially the a la carte lunch and beers we were offered, rather than finger food which (I believe) is all that is offered on other tours. All in all a great day out.
