Explore Guildford, Wine & Cruise

Exclusive to Swan Valley Tours!  At last you have the opportunity to explore the pretty heritage listed town of Guildford in the morning, before heading into the Swan Valley for wine tastings in the afternoon!

Your friendly driver picks you up from Perth at 9:45am and in just 25 minutes you are a world away in Olde Guildford Town.  After a guided tour by coach to get your bearings and to whet your appetite, you are dropped off at Stirling Square, Guildford  where you have 2 hours to explore this fascinating town at your leisure.  Browse the antique shops of James St. Discover the convict past at the Old Guildford Gaol and Courthouse.  Admire the handiwork of the talented artisans at The Potters Guild.  Enjoy lunch at one of the many eateries that dot the area.  Options abound from the French style garden café behind the historic Post Office, to a pub meal at WA’s oldest hotel, the Rose & Crown Hotel.  (Lunch is at own expense).

At 12.10pm you are picked up from the same point you were dropped off and whisked into the beautiful Swan Valley to enjoy an afternoon of sampling the many delights this region has to offer by joining the Afternoon Delight Coach or Cruise Tours.
