The tour was very informative and educational. As a tourist from the USA, I very much enjoyed learning the history of the area, visiting the various businesses, tasting their goods and being able to purchase the items that I liked. I was most impressed with Loris, our tour operator, who was extremely knowledgeable of the area, history and being able... More

Lauris is a spectacular and informative tour guide, keeping us entertained and informed throughout. A few different options for tours, and any of them will provide good value. Our Sunday afternoon tour had over 25 tastings and learned an abundance about the places we went as well as some local history. Food lovers of all ages will enjoy the tour... More

What an awesome experience! I would highly recommend this tour not only to visitors to Perth but also local residents. Such a vast array of place visited, tastings to be had, and a most engaging tour guide. I am a local yet I learnt so much more about the region and what it has to offer. Loris is a font... More

My son and I joined Taste Bud Tours for a Saturday afternoon. From booking to drop off, tour operator Loris was fantastic, genuinely friendly, great customer service, knowledgeable of WA and Perth history and more specifically the Swan Valley area and the businesses we visited. We went to a great and varied range of venues and it was obvious that... More

The tour is a very good, Really enjoyed the tour but the time spend over each venue is quite short. It would be better if could spend a bit more time on the Chocolate and nougat places as its selections is quite broad and people tend to ponder more on trying types of chocolates. The brewery and the pizza is... More

Staff friendly, food tasty and the locals you meet along the way fascinating. Being a local I have been to the swan valley many times. But like most I rarely leave the main road through there, visiting the same old places. This tour was a great way to gain some new favorites off the beaten track. Love the history and... More

We were picked up in the centre of Perth and the coach took us the 12km to the Swan Valley. Loris (the tour guide) was knowledgeable and entertaining from the first turn of the wheel. The Swan Valley is very picturesque. We stopped at a variety of businesses including a winery, a chocolate factory, a coffee roasting outlet (my personal... More

Really enjoyed it! Got to taste a lot of different things, very good! Friendly, known all our names right after we introduced our self. She gave us some facts that just were interesting but didn't had to do with the tour itself, that's a good thing i think! Remember to bring cash if you have any plans of buying anything... More
