One of the best attractions which Perth has and can boast of, which Melbourne doesn’t, is the wine tours Perth that is organized. These tours take you on a leisurely cruise up the Swan Valley. While on the boat you enjoy your morning tea with a muffin or cookie. That is followed by the blue cow cheese as well as biscuits with your wine tasting. Then you connect with the coach tour in the Swan Valley and get to taste the beer, cheese, and chocolate. What can be a better way to spend a whole day?
When you opt for the Swan Valley tour, you will realize that it is a paradise for all wine lovers. Swan Valley has boutique wineries and is known as the birthplace of viticulture in Western Australia. It's always important to hire a good Perth bus hire company for your needs. Bus hire providers in Perth will be able to take you to all of your preferred destinations.
When on the wine tour, you get to sample the wine of the month which is from the local vineyards in Swan Valley. You also are informed about the river history as well as the wetlands while watching the scenery go by from the boat which is fully air-conditioned and in the airline style. Once the first leg is completed, which is the cruise, the coach driver will then take you on the driving tour, and you will get to visit boutique wineries. You are also given a souvenir tasting booklet in which you can jot down your tastings.
In addition to this, you can see the artisan food producers and the chocolate as well as nougat makers. You will also get a chance to sample the craft beers of the Swan Valley.
Then lunch will be a vineyard platter, and it comes complete with wine which is offered complimentary to the members of the group. Some of these cruises allow you to choose your favorite wine for the meal. You can then purchase wines or gifts from the Emporium. Then you can taste chocolates as well as truffles at the Margaret River Chocolate company.
The tour is 8 hours of total bliss and you are dropped off either in Perth, Guildford or Burswood.
If you decide you do not want to do a full day tour, then you can opt for a half-day scenic cruise as well. In this, the various sights are pointed out by the Captain, which includes the Bell Tower, the Swan Brewery, the King’s Park, The Yacht Club and the homes which overlook the inner harbor of Freemantle as well as the river. During this tour, you can get to enjoy wine tasting of the different Australian wines, and if you so want, you can have unlimited tea and coffee as well.
Or else, you can choose an extended return where you are allowed to break journey at Freemantle, explore the city, enjoy coffee on the Cappuccino Strip, treat yourself to fish and chips at the Fishing Boat Harbor or even visit the pubs for a boutique beer experience and then take a leisurely cruise back and enjoy your wine tasting on the return journey.
These are some of the ways to enjoy the wine tours Perth has to offer.
