We loved this tour. We are locals and gave it a go and found some new favourite places. The guide Loris is warm and friendly and makes the tour a leisurely but full afternoon of yummy food. We purchased delicious treats at almost every venue ( however there was no pressure or obligation to do so). I will send all... More

We had a most enjoyable time being driven around the Swan Valley, with food tasting and great wine. Loris was very enthusiastic and so knowledgeable about the places we visited, while pointing out interesting locations along the way, explaining the history of Guildford and the surrounding Swan Valley as we drove past, her local knowledge was amazing. I would certainly... More

Loris was amazing - so informative, so organised, could not fault the trip. Perfect size group and for the time we had never felt rushed but always on the go ready for our next adventure. She has inspired us to go back and try places we had previously disregarded. Cannot recommend Loris and her tour highly enough.

thankyou for a very well informed and enjoyable tour, it was well worth the train trip from Mandurah and just cant fault it. Everything was so organised and went to plan. I would say don't think about it just do it and like me you will be pleased you did it. Gladys = Mandurah

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!
