I took the "Perth's Famous Wine Cruise" with a group of 7 work colleagues last Monday. Our expectations were pretty simple - good food and wine whilst enjoying the scenery of the Swan Valley. We were blown away by the experience though! From the outset our hosts, Georgia and Rachael, were very entertaining and the background commentary was very informative with details about Perth's history and the local attractions. There was a great selection of teas and breakfast pastries, and then the wine tasting began.
Lunch at Sandalford was just delicious - I had the barramundi and it simply melted in the mouth. The wine flight was a very good selection, and you could then choose one to have a (generous) glass of with your meal. The port and sherry tasting after lunch was a welcome surprise before re-boarding the boat back to Perth.
For the return journey, we had already had the commentary about Perth so the girls laid on entertainment in the form of singing and dancing. I suspect you need to be in the right mood for this and I note that previous reviews that others have found this intrusive. However, I suggest embracing the experience - we joined in and had an outrageous afternoon of laughter.
Overall, an excellent day with a good mixture of information about Perth, the wines we were enjoying, the history of the area and some hilarious entertainment. Great value day, which I would highly recommend for small groups.
