I really enjoyed my experience with Taste Bud Tours. I found the activity on Trip Advisor and given its good reviews decided to give it a go - I wasn't disappointed. Loris the guide was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about the area and all of the products we tried out. We tried a nice mixture of food and drinks... More

We did the morning tour on a Sunday and it was a great way to see a few different places in the Swan Valley. We saw a lot, but it never felt rushed and Loris was a great host. The variety of places we visited was fantastic. Would certainly do this again.

What a great way to see some just some of what the Swan Valley has to offer. All the places we visited on our morning tour was not only a taste sensation but interesting and informative. Lois was great and you can tell she really loves what she does. I did not know there was so much to see and... More

We booked the morning tour on a Friday. We live in Perth and were looking for something a little different to do and we saw this one advertised. We have been to the Swan Valley many times before mostly by ourselves and a couple of times with organised tours. What we like about this one was the wide range of... More

Value for money tour with lots of info from Loris and really good locations. Would recommend this tour if you don't want to be out all day but still want to see the sites!

Loris is friendly, informative and well organised. She takes good care of her group members and performs her multi-tasks (driver, photographer, guide) perfectly. We found this trip very enjoyable and worthy of joining.

We booked the afternoon tour. We had such a good day, lots of food and wine tasting and also got to see Swan Valley and find out the history behind it. Loris is a great tour guide and took us to lots of places.. Finished the day in a brewery with a delicious pizza and a beer!

What a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon! I went on a Taste Bud Tours afternoon tour in the Swan Valley as part of a business group I am involved in. It was a wonderful way to spend a relaxing & interesting afternoon & gave us a great chance to get to know each other better. Unlike going to a dinner or seminar,... More

Coffee, lavender scones, falvoured coffee, honey as the bees make it, diverse bush tucker, wine, chocolate, nuogat, nuts - ten locations, together with many demonstrations and tastings, superb commentary throughout, with an enthusiastic, friendly guide whose non-stop commentary is always interesting. As Perth residents we have vistied the Swan Valley many tines but this opened our eyes and tastes to... More
