          Fantastic Private Tours - City and Swan Valley Wines
          We spent 2 full days on private tours with Paul and Shannon. They were great. We started planning well ahead of our visit and worked extensively with Shannon via email to plan our 2 days. She was extremely responsive and helpful. This really helped us plan activities that really suited us. Day 1 was with Paul, who lead us on a walking tour of Fremantle from our hotel. Paul was great at knowing the history and giving us a good overview of Fremantle. We did not elect to include a tour of the prison, which you could include, but did stop there and learn a bit. Next we went over to Perth and learned about that area. Many stops for great views along the way. We stopped for a walk through Kings Park Botanical Garden which was very interesting. Then it was off to lunch along the waterfront. After lunch, we chose to do a tour of the National Gold Mint which we enjoyed (sadly, no free samples, though you can lift a pretty heavy gold bar). We ended the tour and rode the train back to Fremantle, which was easy to do. Originally, we thought we might hang out longer on our own, but was too hot. Day 2 was with Shannon who took us up to visit 3 wineries in the Swan Valley. She worked with us to select the wineries, and they varied in size, though none of them huge. We liked them all, but the group favorite was Olive Farm Wines. Lunch was at a local eatery where we enjoyed shared plates. The day was extremely hot, but Shannon made sure she kept us as comfortable as possible. She was the perfect host - both knowledgeable and fun. Would highly recommend touring with them and planning a special day as we did.

          Fun day out
          The interest in this tour was so high, we booked a private tour. It did not disappoint. Everyone had an amazing day. Locations were great with yumbolicious food and our host Paul was very friendly and accommodating. A must do tour for anyone who loves a good time and American style BBQ.

          A great day out.
          A very enjoyable day out. The minibus was very comfortable and Paul always made sure the aircon was on 10 minutes before we got back in. The two wineries were very interesting and there was a large variety of tastings included at both.Lunch was very nice, with plenty to go round. Cider is not my thing but again a great tasting paddle in a lovely setting. The distillery tour was also very interesting and included generous tastings. It was lovely to go to an area of Perth, that we seldom visit and see some very pretty countryside. I would highly recommend this tour, and special thanks to Paul who was very knowledgeable about the area and Perth in general.

          A True Swan Valley Wine Experience!
          We enjoy our wine & wanted a tour that concentrated on the wineries rather chocolate or cheese-makers. Shannon is an expert guide & provided us with an excellent itinerary starting with fantastic wine/canopy pairing, a delicious lunch at the second winery, & two other wineries all showcasing the wonderful wines in the Swan Valley. The wineries were all smaller, family run, & very welcoming, giving us a chance to sample the huge range of different wines produced in this area. We will definitely use Up Close & Local for our next trip to the Margaret River wineries.

          5/5 Stars from The Book Club Girls
          What a fabulous day out! Our group haven't stopped talking about the Low and Slow BBQ Tour and will do so for years to come. We can't recommend our guide, Paul, highly enough. He is so knowledgeable, professional, amiable, and shared so much of the Perth unique smokehouse food scene and history with us. The tour was excellent value for money and included so much delicious food (we are on a serious diet now)!!! plus a cheeky cocktail too! This is our second tour with Up Close and Local Tours and we will definitely use them again! We rate our Low and Slow BBQ Tour 5/5 stars!

          A quality private tour with an extremely knowledgeable tour guide
          Myself and my brother went on a private customised wine tour with Shannon. It was superb! Shannon was incredibly knowledgeable and took us to some great vineyards whose viticulturists/vintners were super welcoming and friendly. We’d added a cheeseboard and chocolate tasting to our tour so regretted the super large wood fired pizza we each had at Nikola Wine! We went back to our hotel for a sleep!

          Great Day in the Swan Valley
          Our Up Close and Local tour host Shannon found us some great venues with very knowledgeable and friendly staff so we learnt a lot about the history of the region and the origin of the drinks they make. An interesting and varied day tour. Everyone thinks Margaret River is the be-all of WA's wine industry but we have some vastly under-appreciated wineries on Perth's doorstep in Swan Valley, and Up Close and Local does a great job in reminding us!

          I greatly enjoyed. I was the only solo person but I didn't feel left out at all. It was informative and a great experience. I bought several wines and whiskey. I will be going back to the winery's for meals and the amazing atmosphere.

          Great Day Out - Brilliantly Organised
          Shannon the Tour Operator is amazing, very organised and tending to our needs before we realised we had any. The Cellar Door Managers of the two vineyards where very well informed and gave an extremely coherent rundown of the wines we were tasting. Our lunch was plentiful and very tasty. The Cidery Manager gave a full rundown of the variety of ciders available. The final stop at the Whiskey Distillery was very interesting as we learned the ways of making whisky as well as tasting the various stages of the process. A great day out, brilliantly organsied and we recommend the tour without hesitation.

          Wonderful Asian foodie walk
          Fantastic guide & a glorious slice of Vic Pk cuisine I’d never tried (other than the cheese tarts) even though I’ve lived in the area for 25 years. Our guide was excellent & extremely knowledgeable about the restaurants & the food they served. She also regaled us with snippets of information about Vietnamese culture particularly around food. Loved it & & so did my 11 year old foodie granddaughter. Five stars

        We had a wonderful time touring the Bickley Valley, all the venues Shannon took us to were fantastic! Great selection of wines, ciders and even a tasting of gin at one venue for those who preferred. Shannon was knowledgeable and friendly, thanks for a great day! This tour was a highlight on our trip to Perth and we’d definitely recommend it to others. Thanks again Shannon!

        What an amazing time myself and two daughters had on this tour. There was only the three of us on the tour which worked out great as we were treated so well and given so much information at every stop. The cheese board was so good and we tried so many different wines and cider. Paul was a great tour guide so friendly and helpful and knew so much about the Bickley region and the wineries and cider maker that we visited.

        Do yourself a favour and book a tour with Up Close and Local tours, Paul picked us up from the departure point on time and proceeded on our tour. Paul was extremely knowledgeable on the area and the wineries. The wineries and the Cider place we visited were a very good choice. The winery owners explained about their wines and the history of their cellar door, we learnt quite a lot about the wines from the Bickley Valley. We had an amazing afternoon out. Thank you Up Close and Local Tours.

        Loved every minute of this tour. Great people, knowledgeable guides and many great memories. It was somewhat annoying to sit at the back of the bus where the company’s promotional sticker degraded the view. Like looking through a shower curtain. Apart from that, this tour comes highly recommended.

        I organised this tour for my 40th birthday for 10
        close friends. Shannon was so very helpful and patient with my many emails and requests. Nothing was too much trouble (including arranging a birthday cake for me at our lunch venue). The Bickley Valley is so beautiful, the venues were mostly small with personable and attentive owners show casing great wine. My group had lots of questions and talked a lot but Paul accommodated for us and made tweaks to the day as I requested it. It was a great day and all my guests thoroughly enjoyed it! I’d recommended both the Bickley Valley and Up Close and Local for a beautiful, relaxed, friendly, attentive and down to earth day out.

        I recently went on a private wine tour in Bickley Valley with 3 girlfriends. We had the best day, Shannon our guide was so friendly and passionate about supporting small local businesses. The car was so luxurious. We visited small wine cellar doors with the most amazing wines to try and met the loveliest devoted business owners. We ate a delicious platter for lunch with amazing views over the valley. I can highly recommend this tour.

        This was actually a full day tour for our group of six ladies, led by Shannon. We really enjoyed getting to know an area which is local to most of us but the majority had never been to these places. The staff at each location were knowledgeable and known to Shannon which makes a difference as we felt like we were her friends, being taken to meet her friends. This is a tour well worth doing and is, in fact, our second with Up Close and Local after spending the day in the Margaret River region with Paul last year. Well done Up Close & Local - you shine again!

        Thanks so much for the lovely review Diane, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you all! Nearly everyone that joins one of our Bickley Valley tours is visiting the region for the first time - which makes our job even more enjoyable.
