Despite living a short drive away from the Swan Valley, Loris showed us some unique gems that I probably wouldn't have ventured to with my own efforts. I had a great time with my partner and our little photo tour group taking happy snaps as we ventured, tasted and indulged.

Loris is an exceptionally knowledgeable guide and passionate about what she does and the Swan Valley. A very well organised tour that took in mostly locally owned and operated outlets. Especially enjoyed the health food outlet. Would highly recommend this operator to anyone!

Wonderful tour by Loris. She has such great knowledge of the area, and knows all the secret food places you would never think of going to. We are Perth locals, but it was all new to us. Different tours morning to arvo, as depends what's open and in season. So glad Loris supplied us with shopping bags, as so happy... More

Four of us girls went on the morning tour, I actually thought there would be more wineries etc as this is what I'd always heard of and been on. In fact we only went to one winery, which was brilliant, I've already drunk the bottles I bought there - thanks Windy Creek! I would never think to go to a... More

Twin Hill wines I sampled cool, sparkling red wine,... More

This 5-hour morning tour was a perfect way to sample the myriad delights of the Swan Valley: we couldn't linger long anywhere but the tour was well-organised and extremely efficiently run, so there was time to taste and enjoy the varied offerings, and even to make purchases if one didn't ponder too long! En route and between stops Loris provided... More

Went on the tour expecting four hours of interesting tastings, but what I got was way, way more. The Swan Valley is full of small owner-operators making a range of interesting foodstuffs. The Valley is also the place in WA for fortifieds. But the focus of Taste Bud is the food; nougat, unprocessed honey, great coffee and more. Thoroughly enjoyable... More

Fabulous trip to some special places in the Swan Valley with personalities to meet at each place. Well organised, on time and still felt very personalised. Loris was very interesting and knowledgeable. We are locals and still found interesting little places with lovely people.
