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.

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.

Lovely Cruiser, Ferry needs a minor refit

Myself and my 3 daughters really enjoyed our return cruise to Freo. The commentry was informative and entertaining. The crew were friendly and professional. The only negative was the internal appearance of the vessel. Particularly, the bulkheads had bits peeling off and appeared to contain mould. That really should be addressed as it could be a public health issue.

Thoroughly enjoyed our time on the cruise. Staff were all wonderful. Enjoyed the commentary. Maybe the only downside was the cost of tea and coffee, when it says on the ticket that it would be complimentary.

More ferry than cruise
Venture17521684559
, Apr 2019
This is really more a simple ferry from Perth to Fremantle, than a cruise. Nothing much of interest to see. Boat is old and worn. There is a voice from the speakers explaining things, but this is more a nuisance as it is completely impossible to understand, except when close to the speaker at the outside front deck.
