Up Close and Local Tours offer highly personalised, boutique food and wine tours in Perth for both local food and wine-lovers, and travellers looking for an authentic West Australian wine tour experience. Forget lining up, getting lost and fighting with your GPS, Up Close and Local make it easy to uncover some of Perth???s hidden gems that visitors (and even some fellow locals) would never otherwise find.

Owned and run by local couple Paul and Shannon, who have an internationally recognised (WSET) accreditation in wine education and know the Swan Valley and Bickley Valley inside out! They are super passionate about supporting the local wine industry and its producers, and with so much amazing fresh produce, world-class boutique wineries and craft producers on our doorstep, supporting local really is the underlying ethos for their business.

The Swan Valley is WA???s oldest wine region and has some spectacular wines on offer, and for those who are a little more adventurous, Up Close and Local also offer tours to the beautiful Bickley Valley wine region as well as one day and multi-day tours to the famous Margaret River wine region.

With so many regions, and so many cellar doors, a little local knowledge goes a long way!

Fabulous 1/2 Day in the Bickley Valley
What a fantastic tour! Thanks to Paul for a great day out in the Perth Hills visiting some fantastic destinations I never would have found on my own. Such a laid back tour with a really knowledgeable guide. Thoroughly recommend Up Close and Local Tours. Am already planning another trip!

Loved the focus on smaller boutique wineries
There was something for everyone in our group of 6. At one stage I think we were all singing in the bus! Fantastic to visit some wineries we never knew existed and I really appreciated the focus on smaller boutique wineries rather than the larger ones I've visited in the past. Paul was a charming and relaxed host, who clearly loves what he does.

Exceptional Tour
As a wine lover, but not a connoisseur, this was the ideal way to learn more from passionate and dedicated producers and sample some excellent wines all under the guidance and exceptional organisation of our host, Paul. Enjoyed everything about this trip and will definitely introduce our friends and visitors for further trips
