Loris and her Speed Grazing Half Day Tour (we went on a Sunday afternoon) is a trip not to be missed. Even though we have lived in Perth for 20 years (my husband all his life!) we would never have found the great places we visited in just 5 hours! Lots of delicious goodies to sample at so many places... More

This was the most well organised tour ever !!!! It's apparent that Loris has been doing this for quite a while. Time prompt, friendly, great knowledge and best sense of humour - you MUST book this tour 😍

Our family had a bad start waiting 1 hour for the pick-up, and whilst the 1/2 day tour with Loris was fun, we were left stranded for the Caversham Park part of the tour. Advice to all families - the 1/2 day morning tour is enjoyable, but don't go on the full day Food Tasting & Caversham Tour as transport... More

We had such an amazing time with Loris, that we are going to have to go back and do the morning tour as well. It was a fast way to cover a lot of the Swan Valley, both location and food wise. Loris's knowledge of historical knowledge and recent events cannot be faulted. Fully recommend this tour!

So many great places in swan valley that I didn't know about. Very good value for money and very informative. Great for couples or even small groups. Was even given a great VIP discount card for so many businesses in swan valley. I look forward to trying the other taste bud tours in the future!

After living in the Swan Valley for over a decade and not knowing any of the knowledge that Loris had. The tour was fun, fast and fattening!

This is a great way to have an overview of what the Swan Valley has to offer. I took my mother for a day out and we had a lovely time. Loris is an excellent tour guide, providing lots of information but without being intrusive. Sampling all the different food and drink was delicious and fun at the same time.

Highly recommend if you are going to only do one tour make this the one! Plenty of variety and you won't go hungry with plenty of discounts you will be sure to shop up a storm so if flying allow a couple of extra kilos! 😄🍺🍷
