Tour Highlights

Bickley Valley Premium Wine Trail

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

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.

Simply Sensational! We can’t recommend Tim highly enough - his service was faultless! Tim worked professionally with us to build our own Swan Valley wine tour, expertly incorporating some venues of our request with some great recommendations of his own. Tim was friendly, fun loving, knowledgeable and attentive all day, working tirelessly to ensure our day was perfect. He even carried our wine purchases to the bus for us. His knowledge of wine and the Swan Valley was exceptional, all venues were wonderful and our lunch was delicious. Our group had such an amazing day that we plan to book again later in the year!

Personalised, exclusive and unique Swan Valley wineries tour We had a wonderful time on this exclusive full-day tour of some of the best boutique wineries in the Swan Valley! Tim was a knowledgeable and thoughtful host, making sure we had excellent service and a great experience at each place we visited. The selection of wineries was well thought-out and allowed us to try many varietals we hadn't previously tried. Being in a small group we got to many places the larger tours can't get to, and had such a personalised experience. Highly recommend this tour!

Suprise wine tour! We were wanting a surprise wine tour for my dads 60th birthday and Tim certainly delivered! He was very organised and so prompt at responding to emails and phone calls. We left it entirely up to him and he did a great job at choosing venues for us. The day ran smoothly and we had such a fantastic time. I would highly recommend Tim at best of Perth tours, can’t wait to do it again sometime. Thank you again.

VIP Swan Valley wine tour Great small group tour. Tim was a great host,even prior to tour ringing on Xmas day to confirm the details. Was a hot day but Tim took the time to get the a/c going in the bus prior to us getting back in. Only hubby and me on the tour so very personal (only takes max of 10). Took us to some great boutique small family wineries we had never visited before and had great tastings. The fortified wine at Garbin was to die for. The tour included lunch at Carriley which was great. All in all a great tour. Thanks Tim.
