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

Small and intimate boat, had a nice booth for our group of four. Staff welcoming and friendly. Buffet food was delicious! Perth City lights are one of the best views to rival Sydney!

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

It's an expensive ferry! We went from Elizabeth Quay to Fremantle and hoped that the commentary would enlighten us about the geography and history of the area, no! We were told names of people buying property and the prices, this meant absolutely nothing to us. A mention of Kings Park after we had past it, nothing about the botanical garden.... More

A fantastic and alternative way to see the Perth city skyline and a small part of the upper Swan. We are a young couple living in Perth who attended the cruise with an interstate visitor and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the outer deck with a drink in hand and watching the world slip by, taking in the gorgeous sunset....
