My boyfriend and I had an amazing day with Sean on his Margaret River Discovery tour. We were initially hesitant as to whether or not to attend the tour as we are Perth locals and thought we knew what to do in the region, but we are so glad we decided to go ahead with it! We had a fabulous... More

Our tour was just like in the brochure and on the website, but I was still surprised how much we (my wife, our adult son, and I) enjoyed it. Sean's enthusiasm was infectious and helped us to appreciate what a wonderful day we were having in such an awesome area.

We cannot recommend highly enough the ‘Margaret River Discovery Tour’. We visited Margaret River during the first week of the new year, with my family and delighted we booked this tour. A great day out for all ages! Our guide, Seán, brought us to some of the most beautiful sites in Margaret River providing a wealth of knowledge (including wine)... More

This was a 25th anniversary treat for my wife and I as part of a week in Margaret River region. I don't mean to yell but it was THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR WEEK. First highlight - Sean. He is enjoyable, full of worthwhile stories, very well planned, and well regarded across town. That makes the rest of the day work... More

My Brother and I did the "Margaret River Discovery Tour" last week and can confirm it to be one of the best tours in the Margaret River region. I had actually done the tour about 5 months back with my Fiancé but wanted to do it again as my Brother was in town and I had enjoyed the previous tour... More

G'day Jeh109, Thanks for another cracking review. So good to get you out on tour again. Loving that new camera! You have got me seriously looking at upgrading to the Sony. That photo of the canoeing on the river is remarkable for the clarity and depth. Thanks again for sharing the experience. Cheers Sean More

The guy on the tour with us almost didn't come because he was afraid of falling out of the canoe - it's not going to happen. The canoe ride was great. My idea of fun is not floating from Winery to Winery so my wife thought this might serve us both well. This trip rocked!! Sean is a hoot of... More

Cheers guys. I'm so glad you loved the canoeing. Hopefully it is a holiday memory that will remain with you for many years to come. The Margaret River is a very calm and peaceful place that gives visitors a wonderful opportunity to connect with nature. Most of my guests marvel at the tranquility when they are out on the water....

It's easy to assume that Margaret River is all about wineries. Sean's discovery tour offers a unique visit to one special winery, but also a few other experiences that many people would not see. The gentle, short paddle on the river is a lovely start to the day. Sean is friendly and hugely knowledgeable about the area, its flora and... More

Thanks Simon, so glad you enjoyed the day. The Discovery Tour is very different to your 'standard' wine tour. We certainly experience some of the region's fabulous wines, but we also explore some of the back roads and the amazing places that you won't find on your own and that make Margaret River a fabulous place you'll want to visit...

I deliberately didn't tell my husband what to expect! I wanted to surprise him. He thought it was going to be just another wine tour. He loved it and so did I. Unique and very enjoyable.

If you want to see the real Margaret River area and sample the local wines on a whole personable level then this is the trip for you!
