Tour Highlights

Bickley Valley Wine Region

Right on Perth’s doorstep, the picturesque Bickley Valley region is located in the Perth Hills and just a short journey from Perth’s city centre. With gorgeous rolling hills and scenic terrain, the Bickley Valley region is an escape from the city to a region of indescribable beauty and is home to some of the very best boutique wine and cider producers in Perth. With our exclusive Perth CBD hotel pick up as well as additional central pick up locations available, you can sit back and relax as you are treated to a full day sampling the very best wine, cider and gourmet experiences the region has to offer.


Locally Produced Cheeseboard Morning Tea

More than just a wine and cider tour, you will be treated to a range of terrific culinary experiences throughout the day. We begin our journey into the Bickley Valley region’s range of delicious cuisine offerings with a magnificent artisan cheeseboard for morning tea. Beautifully paired and enjoyed during one of our first wine tasting experiences for the day, all of the cheeses on offer are locally produced here in Western Australia with a range of cheeses that will be every bit as memorbale as the wines we sample throughout the day.


Bickley Valley Wine Tasting Experiences

As a small tour company we provide intimate wine tasting experiences away from the big tour crowds so you can truly appreciate the wines you are sampling. Each venue has been carefully selected to ensure they are of the highest quality and provide the best representations of what the Bickley Valley wine region can offer. The region provides a wide range of white, red, rose and sparkling wines and each venue provides a personalised, high quality and diverse wine tasting experience. Whether you want to sample classic varietals or try unique blends and styles being developed by creative award winning winemakers we can guarantee you will have the opportunity to discover wines you truly love.


Delicious Main Course Lunch Options

Great wine should go with great food and that is why we provide you with a range of gourmet main course lunch options (inc. vegetarian, gluten free & vegan options) with a variety of meals that caters to every taste and will ensure that your dining experience is just as memorable as the wineries we visit throughout the day. The delicious seasonal lunch menu is prepared by one of the best chef’s in the Bickley Valley and is beautifully accompanied with a glass of wine of your choice from an exclusive cellar door tasting. Unlike other tour companies who may only provide you with a shared platter for lunch, your dining experience will be something for you to savour and enjoy.


Bickley Valley Cider Tasting

We visit an authentic farm in the Bickley Valley to sample a range of the very best artisan apple and pear ciders available in Perth. For over 80 years this 4th generation family has tended to their 40-acre property and throughout this time have become one of the most respected venues not only in the Bickley Valley region but also the broader Perth metropolitan area. You will be treated to a paddle of their delicious boutique range of hand crafted ciders all whilst enjoying the beautiful scenic views from their stunning tasting room.


Professional Tour Guide Commentary

To learn about wine is to discover the region and its history. The Bickley Valley’s rolling hills and undulating terrain provides a range of uinique microclimates for each of the wineries based on the variance on their location which makes for an incredibly diverse wine tasting experience.

Awesome birthday present! - Highly Recommended tour A great day from start to finish, it was my first time in the Swan Valley Region and we visited three breweries, it ended up being a private tour on that day so we were lucky to have Tim, the tour guide, for ourselves, he knows so much about wines and beers and he is always happy to share all his knowledge about the region as well. He was very attentive at all times and quite flexible with the time frame so we got lots of times to enjoy the beers in every place. Lunch was a very nice burger with chips at Feral Brewing Company and we also got a pint of beer 🙂 Highly recommended tour if you are a beer or wine lover!

Amazing Tour - Highly Recommended This was a fabulous wine tour and by far the best we’ve been on to date. We learned so much more than on previous tours and actually feel we understand more about the wines we like. The wineries were well considered and provided us with a broad overview and insight into the Swan Valley Wine RegionTim is an excellent guide (very knowledgeable about wine too) and has a deep commitment to ensuring his guests walk away having had a very memorable experience.

Thoroughly enjoyable. Stepped out of my comfort zone to do this tour by myself after being stuck in WA following Covid-based interstate travel restrictions. I would normally do this type of thing with my wife, so I was apprehensive about how much I might enjoy it going solo. I needn’t have worried. Tim ensured that the tour was relaxed & informative. The wineries we visited were run by knowledgeable, passionate & fascinating characters who made us feel very welcomed.I recommend this tour and would readily do it again.

Lovely day-out in the Swan Valley Lovely day out to take in the sights of our Swan Valley. Small group; plenty of room for social distancing and sanitizer available. Bus spotless. Sampled some lovely wines in quality, lesser known vineyards including delicious cheese-board for morning tea and a lovely lunch in one of the vineyards. Finished with stops for beer, choccies and coffee. Value for money. Tim, very knowledgeable, even threw in a bit of history of the area and no pressure to be anywhere, so very relaxed day. Definitely recommend.

Couldnt have asked for a better birthday A brilliant day from start to finish. Tim knows loads about the wine making process and loves to share. We visited several carefully selected vinyards with the friendliest staff making us feel welcome and relaxed and got to sample some outstanding products. Lunch was first class in an awesome setting with even more fine wines to try. You wont be disappointed if you choose one of his tours.

Tim is the best! 🙂 We are very lucky that on our first day in Australia we met Tim and Perth: his trip and kindness and knowledge amazed us, we fell in love with the country not only the city immediatelly. The tour was great more than we expected with sweet surprises like cheese and wine :))

Behind the scene wine tasting experience Awesome wine tasting experience with Tim in the Swan Valley. The small group set up allows more flexibility, originality and fun than usual tours. Thanks to Tim, we discovered local wines and secrets spots. Should you be interested in Australian wines, I would recommend to book that tour.

Awesome Day Out with Tim! It was our first visit to Perth – yet alone the Swan Valley. The tour was an awesome choice for us – as it provided a small group experience, coupled with some entertaining commentary (thanks Tim) regarding the regions history; vineyard processes (aka – the grape lifecycle!) and tremendous scenery.We were collected from our Perth City hotel and transported in a comfortable small bus to the Swan Valley. The day was very well planned – and definitely didn’t feel rushed at all. We stopped at a number of local wineries – and treated to a backstage viewing at one of them – where the local family (Olive Grove Fames) treated us to several (actually, more than a dozen) wine tastings – accompanied by a delicious cheese platter.Lunch at another venue was equally tasty – accompanied of course, with more wine 😊 Last stop was a local chocolate delicacy – before the final (short) commute back to our hotel. All our wine purchases were treated with the greatest care – housed in Tim’s vehicle (cooler box). Highly recommend this tour!
