Been to the Swan Valley a few to many times? It's time to try something new...The Bickley Valley!
After successfully hosting countless Bickley Valley Charters onboard The Avocado Bus in the past 4 years, I have put together the perfect step-by-step guide with every bit of information needed, to help you plan and book the perfect Bickley Valley Tour for your next day out!
Step 1) Pick the Date
Saturday or Sunday is the way to go. The Bickley Valley is mostly weekend traders, with limited options on Monday to Thursday and a some of the bigger venues open Fridays too!
Step 2) Invite your Friends
Use Facebook Events or a similar app
Step 3) Book your Bus
If your group is 21, 13 or fewer passengers, of course you are riding onboard one of The Avocado Bus'! Get a quote or further info here
What makes The Avocado Bus the best option around!
Step 4) Start Planning the Day / Timings
Usual Bickley Valley Day Charters onboard my bus go from 11:00am to 5:45pm, being a 6.75 hour tour. This includes pickup and drop-off to your location of choice and gives us enough time to visit 3 to 4 venues throughout the day. I suggest around 45 minutes to 1 hour for a tasting at a venue and up to 2.5 hours for your lunch stop to ensure you’re not rushed and can really enjoy each venue at a relaxed pace. Additionally, allow 10-15 minutes for travel time between stops.
Here is an example of timings for your convenience:
Step 5) Choose and then Book the Venues you will be Visiting
All your venues need to be booked in advance and prime-times on a Saturday can be booked out a few weeks in advance. The earlier you lock in your bookings, the better! Here are my favourite venues to give you some ideas and help you start your planning!
Step 6) Pay all your deposits and reconfirm all bookings!
Be sure to pay all your required deposits ASAP and a week or so out send a friendly reconfirmation email to each venue.
