Speed grazing is the perfect description of this food tour. We tasted so many different foods that I have trouble recalling them all. Yes, some places I felt a little rushed, but I think that is to be expected when visiting so many establishments in such a short period of time. The highlights for me were lavendar scones with fresh... More

Loris runs a great tour. We visited a number of food, drink and wine businesses in the Swan Valley and certainly weren't left disappointed. Coffee, ice-coffee, ice-teas, lavender cream teas, hot chocolate, honey, ice-cream, white wine, red wine, fortified wines, chocolate, nuts, nougat, jams, cheeses, fruits, veggies and probably stuff I've forgotten about. It was great to talk to the... More

Fantastic tour of the Swan Valley with a great range of tasty treats along the way. Loris was a very cheerful and knowledgeable guide. She took us to places that I didn't even know about. I particularly liked visiting Maggie's Place and tasting some of the delicious local produce - If I had just driven past on my own I... More

I thought I knew the Swan Valley from visiting it regularly but Loris took us to places I haven't considered or didn't know about and got an experience that I wouldn't of had by going on my own. Very informative and well worth it.

Very friendly guide - the moment I enter the van shes being very kind and engaging. She is knowledgable, the tour tends to be informative as she shares a lot of her personal experience as well. Was given map, mineral water and shopping bag - very thoughtful, Thank you!

This was an excellent tour. Loris is a great and humorous guide with a seemingly in-exhaustive pool of knowledge of the Swan valley. She shares both her passion for all the wonderful historical, scenic and above all, delicious experiences the valley has to offer. Starting off with a coffee tasting was great. Amongst all the fresh produce we had a... More
