If you really want to know about the Margaret River region, Sean's "discovery tour" is as good as it gets! You see the major sites (including an exclusive winery tour) while you learn about the history of the region and why it is so well-suited for both settlement and wine-making. And all of this is accomplished with a sense of... More

The reviews are right! Sean runs a great trip. We (couple with kids 12 & 16yrs) had a lovely day on the tour back in December. It's very gentle, I think there is a market for someone to do more adventurous tours...maybe more canoeing and walking? However Sean's tour is exactly as described and we had a fantastic day out....

My wife and I have just returned after an extremely enjoyable day with Sean and two other great couples. I had to write this review immeadiately before it went on the to do things that never do. I don't need to mention the activities, as plenty have, all I can say that it is well worth doing and is very... More

We had the best day out with Sean. From the story of a Tiger Moth flying winemaker at Edwards to a couple of hours spent watching the whole winemaking process at Cape Mentelle through to private access to an up and coming vineyard it was the best tour I have ever been on. Sean is very knowledgable but also great... More

Sean's car had suffered a catastrophic engine damage, but he turned up in his wife's smaller car, which could only accommodate 4 people. Luckily we were still onboard! Day started with the river canoe ride - absolutely brilliant. Then we went to Pevelly for coffee and to view the surfers. Sean has lots of photos and videos of the devastating... More

All the previous glowing reviews are absolutely correct. Huge enthusiasm from Sean to give you a totally personalised experience. All the activities are ones which would be very hard if not impossible to organise by yourself. We can only have praise for the tour and have come home with some wonderful memories.

I can't begin to describe how good our day was. Sean is the perfect host and a true gent!! We started the day with a run through the itinerary. Then Jump into the Land Rover Discovery and set off. We both couldn't wait to get started! First off was a tranquil Canoe up the Margaret River, as the website states... More

Had a great day with Sean and the other 4 in our 4wd. Forget any thoughts about sweaty minibuses, missing half of what tour guides are saying due to being one of 50; this was as close as you could get to a knowledgeable mate showing you around their beloved playground. Really unmissable and the highlight of our trip.

Don't think, just book! Sean is fantastic, so knowledgeable about the area. This wasn't our first visit to Margaret River but we saw things we'd never have been able to without him. Canoeing on the Margaret River, coffee stop at a great little cafe, visit to an old aboriginal waterhole, lunch and tasting at Fraser Gallops estate (an exclusive venue... More
