OK, so it's no Margaret River. That said, the Swan Valley is right on Perth's doorstep and you'll be there before you've even packed the car for a Margaret River trip! The wine might not be as good, but the food is certainly up to par. Honey's, jams, ice cream, fresh produce - a great variety and attractively priced. It's... More

What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Loris is a font of interesting and engaging facts and figures about the Swan Valley. Her personal connection with the area and her passion for the food, wine and the location is admirable. The timing of the tour was perfect and Loris was able to "herd" us all off and on to... More

What an excellent way to see the Swan Valley.! After checking out the options this tour appealed as it takes in such a variety of food and drinks, all in a few hours. Loris has the day all planned out so it never felt rushed and so much fit in. The special offers and discounts were a nice surprise. We... More

Now I am back in Melbourne enjoying my purchases of jarrah honey and iced coffee mix, I am so glad I went on a Taste Bud Tour. The interesting mix of places to visit and the warm and thoughtful presence of Loris our guide made for one of the most enjoyable (and lasting) travel experiences!

My husband and I spent a lovely afternoon with Taste Bud Tours on the food, wine, and beer tour. Loris was so informative and friendly. A few of the stops we were given generous samples. Yahava Koffee Works, Cape Lavender, Jarrah Ridge Wines, Moorish Nuts, and Ironbark Brewery were our favorite stops! We opted to pay for a sampling tray... More

A great day trip for a taste of the Swan Valley. Loris is very informative and kept us running to a tight schedule which was great. It meant we got to see everything and kept the day running smoothly. Would like to have done the afternoon trip but we ran out of time. She even dropped us at Harbourtown on... More

Went speed grazing with a group of friends when on holiday, was a wonderful morning. Loris the guide was brilliant, lots of knowledge without going over the top. Would recommend if you like food and supporting local producers.
