This was the 2nd time I've taken visitors on the speed grazing tour and I enjoyed it just as much as the first, maybe even more so as I knew what tasty delights were coming up! Loris is a thoroughly informative tour operator who's passion for the local area, it's history, it's produce and it's independent retailers shines through. Incredible... More

I was invited to join a clients staff outing for a Sunday pm tour. This was a wonderful opportunity to see 11 attractions in a very short period of time, with a 1 person operator and yet not feel rushed at any of them. For any foodie this tour is the best in the Swan Valley stable ( the tour... More

Just got back from a wonderful afternoon on the Taste Bud Tour with Loris. We visited 10 venues where we were informed about each local produce. We could purchase if we wished but not made to feel guilty if we didn't. Each stop had a different discount or deal which made it better value. We had some lovely people on... More

Thanks Loris for a fun & tasty morning in the Swan Valley. I've lived in Perth for 30+ years but haven't been to half of the places on the tour. Highly recommended.

Loris is a very knowledgeable tour guide. She is very approachable and easy going. We visited 10 locations to taste test various food and wine. Each location visited had one of the owners the store give us a basic run down of their business. It was a great way to spend our sunday afternoon. No need to worry about driving... More
