Whether you are a novice or expert, the tour provides a terrific insight into the region as well as an understanding of what makes the Swan Valley wine region so unique. As we stroll through the vines, into the production area and finish in the barrel ageing room you will be able to gain an insight into the craft of winemaking and the attention to detail, effort and commitment required to create that great bottle of wine.

Artisan Cheeseboard Morning Tea

As a part of your first private cellar door experience for the tour a delicious artisan cheeseboard is prepared to accompany your wine tasting for morning tea. The 'Best of the West' cheeseboard comprises of a range of Western Australian produces cheeses including a beautifully light goat's cheese, delicious creamy brie, robust raclette style cheese and a rich blue cheese. The range of cheeses showcases some ofthe very best producers of the region and are chosen to perfectly compliment the wine tasting experience.

From Swan Valley's classic wine varieties to new blends and styles being developed by winemakers in this ever evolving region, each winery will broaden your horizon and help you discover wines you truly love.

Gourmet Main Course Lunch

Great wine should go with great food and unlike other winery tours who provide shared platters, you will be treated to a gourmet main course meal with a variety options that cater to every taste. Delicious seasonal lunch menu options are prepared by an amazing Swan Valley chef and accompanied with a complimentary glass of wine of your choosing from a private cellar door tasting. With suggested pairings to compliment your meal, your lunch experience will be something for you to savour and enjoy.

Chocolate & Gourmet Food Tasting

A day of indulgence wouldn’t be complete without dessert. We make a final stop at one of “Australia’s Top 100 Gourmet Experiences” to sample a variety of chocolates as well as gourmet jams, chutneys and vinaigrettes to accompany your wine purchases from the day.

  • review rating 5  We had a great day with Tim, and appreciated his knwledge and choices of vineyards. I could have done without the rather tacky chocolate shop at the last stop, but that's just my taste. A very enjoyable day with some interesting wines.

    thumb Gregor Ronald
  • review rating 5  Would highly recommend. My best friend and I were looking for a wine tour close to Perth, which involved a smaller group, high quality lunch options and access to the cellar doors of more boutique winemakers. This tour delivers all those things, and more. The wineries we visited offered a variety of experiences, lunch was gourmet in a gorgeous setting and transport comfortable. Tim is the ultimate professional: very knowledgeable about the area and the wineries we visited, but at the same time, down to earth and super friendly. He was flexible in terms of logistics, well prepared with water, a cooler for the wine and bubble wrap to protect the precious cargo we all brought home, and a true gent from start to finish. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to others. Thanks again for the best day!

    thumb Laura Needham
  • review rating 5  What a great tour! Our host Tim has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to wine, food and the local region. The stories and history he tells is so interesting and adds such depth beyond other ordinary tours. The intimate group setting makes for some great dynamics and shared conversations that everyone can enjoy. The selection of venues were brilliant and he accommodated some changes in the itinerary for our group as well. What a great time! Thanks, Tim!

    thumb Paul Thompson
  • review rating 5  Having been to Swan Valley several times previously I had never been fully aware of the history of the region and the work that goes into making the wine until experiencing the VIP tour. Tim's knowledge, passion, and personality made for a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.

    thumb Terry Gilmore
  • review rating 5  First of all, I teach wine and travel the world visiting wineries so I have pretty high expectations for wine tours. Tim Stone, the owner of Best of Perth Tours is a knowledgeable wine guy with credentials to back it up. The wineries we visited each had something different to offer and ranged from very small to large. Tim saw that we got personalized attention at all of them and we had plenty of wines to taste. The cheese plate and lunch were both good. I can't say enough good things about Tim and this tour. Go!!!! You won't be disappointed!

    thumb Sandra Taylor
  • review rating 5  My guests were very pleased with Tim’s tour and service. Will definitely engage him for future tours. Keep it up, Tim

    thumb kimmy Tan
  • review rating 5  Had an absolute great time with Tim (our guide) on the swan valley wine tour. I Have done a few other swan valley wine tours - this one is easily the best. Look no further - this tour is well worth it and you won’t be dissapointed.

    thumb Matt
  • review rating 5  My husband and I recently spent a long weekend in Perth and the absolute highlight was the day we spent wine tasting in the lovely Swan Valley with Tim’s Best of Perth Tour! Tim is very personable, knowledgeable about the Valley and it’s offerings, passionate about his business and fun loving! He kindly tailored the tour to our preferences as we were lucky enough to have him to ourselves that day and happily played photographer! Everything was perfect, from the behind the scenes wine making experience, to the delectable cheese board for morning tea and wonderful lunch at Houghton Winery, to a picturesque final tasting and delicious glass of tempranillo at Pandemonium Estate! We cannot recommend Tim’s Best of Perth Tour enough. If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Perth, you can’t go wrong with a tour with Tim. Thanks for a fab day, Tim! -Josie and Luke xx

  • review rating 5  I went on a tour of the Swan Valley with my brother and a mate and I cannot recommend Tim, our tour guide (and designated driver!), enough. He went above and beyond in every possible way. Any questions we asked about any part of the fermentation process or wine in general, he was able to answer, and when he wasn’t, he went and grabbed the OWNER of the winery to personally answer it for us. Tim is friends with workers and owners all around the wineries so you know you are getting the best of the best. He had a fantastic palate and was able to recommend both fantastic wineries and exquisite wines. I am counting down the days until I can book another tour with Tim and Best of Perth Tours. Do yourself a favour and give him a call.

    thumb Alex Bruce
  • review rating 5  We had done a few Swan Valley tours before but this one definitely stands out. Tim was so knowledgeable on the region, his passion for the history of Swan Valley made the tour really special. We got tours of the wine making process and got to see the best of Swan Valley. We had a great day and definitely recommend this tour.
