We expected to sample food, wine, etc, this happened but the samples were miniscule, and the whole tour was about buying the goods on display,its coerchion at its best, how misleading and embarrassing as we had invitd guests to join us on the tour.I would not reccomment this tour to anyone.

Right from the moment we were collected, Loris made us all feel comfortable and her personal touch of remembering every person on the buses names was fantastic. Loris is so friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgable about the region, this tour seemed to go so quickly we were sorry to have it end. Fantastic afternoon and would thoroughly recommend it. Lynda

The perfect tour to make the most of Swan Valley within a day. Loris came to pick us up in Perth, showed us all around Swan Valley, and then dropped us back off in the city after 5 hours of wine/food tasting. The price is really reasonable and you get to try a lot of goodies and get additional benefits... More

She really knows her stuff regarding the area's history and food, and has found many small family businesses that can give you a really personal tour. Each place we went to let us try lots of samples and gavevavreal insight into the history and manufacture of their delicious products! During... More

My girlfriend and I went on this tour recently. We were brought to various shops, food establishments, and wineries around Swan Valley, each one of which was very interesting in its own way. The food that we ate was high end but we only received very tiny quantities. The reason I rate the tour as "Poor" is because of the... More

I've managed to look through most of Swan Valley during a day. Trips were very meticulously planned. However, it was really rush, but as the title says: "speed gazing tour". Hence, be prepared to only stay at a location for only 10-15 minutes. Loris was really nice, detailed and helpful. She tells you the history of the places we passed... More

It's nice outing in the correct pace of time. Have fun and relax around the Swan Valley. Loris is a good guide for us. She has a lot of knowledge but she also does not want to overwhelming us with her knowledge. I recommend this tour for people in Perth or when they are visiting Perth.

I thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon tour to the Swan Valley. In just a few hours we visited a few small wineries, a chocolate factory, saw coffee being roasted and sampled it, had a scone , ate some chutneys, and many more nibbles. We ended the afternoon in a vegetarian cafe which specialized in healing herbal teas. Lori, our guide, is... More
