The Taste Bud Tour of Swan Valley was a first for me, and what an experience! I had a lot of fun exploring parts of Perth and learning about the unique history through Loris. The food and wine were delicious, and the staff at the venues we visited were very friendly! Would definitely recommend travelers as well as Perth natives... More

Loris was great and we had a fun time. If you want to see more than just vineyards, this is the tour. They don't call it speed grazing for nothing, though. You're in and out of each place in 20 minutes. But, she covered a lot in a short period of time and we really enjoyed it.

I moved from Sydney to Perth nearly 7 years ago, and have visited one or two venues in the Swan Valley in that time. I always intended to go back on a "guided tour" to find out about the history of the area and could not have chosen a better tour than Taste Bud Tours!! Loris, the owner-operator, was brilliant!....

Loris was a very knowledgeable and organized guide with a very positive attitude. We managed to visit ten different places while sticking to the schedule. We did visit one winery, which provided ample tastings, but the emphasis of this tour is decidedly on food--honey, chocolate, nougat, nuts, coffee, and more. While the visits were brief, each included some information from... More

Taste Bud Tours is by far the best Wine Tour I have done in Australia, and I have done several. Why? Loris is the most entertaining tour guide who has established a brilliant mixture of food, wine and beer tasting along the Swan Valley. So much more interesting than just going form Winery to Winery! Thumbs up!! Absolute MUST DO... More
