Up Close & Local Tours specialise in Margaret River & Perth Wine Tours, Food Tours in Perth, and Cider Wine & Whiskey Tours in Perth’s Bickley Valley.
We only visit places that we love, supporting local craft producers and uncovering hidden gems along the way. As local food and wine-lovers ourselves, our tours are designed so that both locals and visitors to Perth will discover something new, meet some great people and learn a thing or two as we eat and drink our way around Perth.
All of our tours are small group tours with no more than 12 guests per tour. This allows us to offer a more personalised experience, take our time to enjoy the day, and get one-on-one with the people who run some of Perth’s most exciting small batch producers. Being smaller group sizes also gives us the opportunity to take you to places that can’t accommodate larger groups.
So whether you are a visitor to Perth looking for an authentic private wine tour Perth, a local wanting to rediscover their city, or you’re simply looking for a great day out then we have a tour for you!
These tours can be booked 'by the seat' for one to 12 people. They are also available for private bookings for couples or groups.
