Fantastic, I would Recommend this Tour to Anyone. Our Captain Matt was fun, Lisa helped make the cruise memorable but Bec she stole the show. Not only did she make sure we were looked after on the cruise but when we got to the winery she helped out also. The dinning experience at the Sandalford Estate was Fabulous, we got to sample many different Wines. On our trip back on the cruise she entertained us with singing and getting the passengers included, It has been the best cruise we have ever been on and Would Urge People to do it.

Great crew on the boat trip. Informative tour through the winery. Excellent two course lunch and entertaining cruise back down the river with a couple more wines. All in all a great day out.

From start to finish, this tour was amazing. The boat offers spectacular views from the Swan River. Meanwhile, the boat captain provided ongoing information about what we were seeing. The wine tastings were fantastic, the cheese board accompaniment was perfectly paired and lunch at Sandalford winery was world class. The boat guide who entertained us with song toward the cruise's end was a enjoyable and pleasant surprise. I highly recommend this tour!

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

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

The crew were great. Warm, friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed the tour of the Sandalford winery and the food was excellent. I will definitely recommend it to others who want an informative but relaxing way to learn about the origins of the settlement from Toby, a joke with Colleen and a song and fun with Maddy. A great day out.

The cruise was very enjoyable and excellent value for money. The crew were friendly and the commentary was entertaining and informative. There was a wine tasting onboard with a lovely cheese plate, as well as coffee, tea and cakes. The winery tour was interesting, finishing with a tasty and substantial lunch and another wine tasting. It was a great day and well worth the money.

This is a chill out day. A lovely cruise up the Swan. The hospitality is fantastic. The wine tour and lunch were excellent. What topped it off was the crew bursting out into song on the return trip. They were fantastic. Add in a couple of bridal showers on the trip and it was a whole lot of fun. Highly recommended.

In spite of a rainy day, this was a fun and enjoyable trip. A small group 17 for a Monday, and we all got very good attention from the crew. We had a wine tasting on the outbound trip along with cheese. Docked at the winery, where we were given an interesting tour, followed by a tasty lunch with out choice of one of the wines we had tasted. Time to shop before heading back to Perth. Wine was also available included on the return trip along with dessert. A special thanks to Dani , one of the crew who not only looked after us well, but also is a very good singer. She serenaded us on the way back.

What a fantastic trip. A lovely welcome onto the comfortable boat. Coffee and a muffin greeted us then the cruise up the river started. Past the WACA then a view of the new stadium and at 10.30 the first wine tastings accompanied bu delicious cheese. Arrived at the vineyard and had a great tour then onto more wine tastings. Lunch was delicious and accompanied by a glass of your favourite wine. Shop and desert wines to follow then back to the boat and an open bar, cake and lots of chat with fellow guests and entertainment from the crew. An excellent day
