Easy cruise. Relaxing and smooth. Could not hear the commentary at all as poor PA System very muffled. The TV Monitors kept going off line so could not even refer to the screens…

None really. I can compare it to our Sorrento to Queensclip trip for a more reasonable price. Even still the boat ride from Circular Quay to Manly was a much more memorable boat ride compared to the Swan River scenic cruise.

No way to book lunch online! 15 minute turnaround in Fremantle was disappointing! No time to do anything. I realise covid has caused problems and hope better service is offered post covid.

Great day out on the Swan River (Viator - Use this review and delete previous review since I made a mistake)

Cruise vessel was very comfortable; commentary could have been more informative regarding landmarks and sights along the Swan River ; and layover for immediate return trip at Fremantle should be longer than 15 minutes.

Excellent day out

Tour delivered on visiting 3 wineries, brewery and chocolate store; overall tour was a bit rushed; guide Tony was great value including his many jokes and knowledge of the Swan Valley region. An excellent day out and highly recommended.
