Highlight = kayak along the beautiful Margaret River. Lowlight = day went too fast. Sean is an awesome guide!!! His local knowledge is excellent & he really engaged with us "tourists". His passion for Margaret River was infectious. The thing we loved most was that we ventured off the beaten track to some beautiful spots we would never have found... More

We have to agree with all the other great reviews! Sean conducts a friendly, knowledgeable and personal tour of natural beauty spots around Margaret River, with a private gourmet-tasting lunch at a small, award winning winery. This is a wonderful way to experience some of the best features of the area, with no pressure to buy anything. Sean is a... More

The Discovery Tour was a gem of a find, that started with a gentle and soul restoring canoe down the Margaret River (and yes it's easy and you stay dry). What followed was a meander through the lanes and trails to see the Margaret River's natural beauty, with Sean as a knowledgable guide with interesting information. Lunch at the Fraser... More

Hi Karen, thanks for such a nice review. So glad we were able to meet at the start of your week in Margaret River and hopefully give a good insight into the region before you go exploring yourself. Enjoy those Fraser Gallop wines when they arrive .... I reckon that 2012 Cabernet will prove to be one of the great... More

Sean is an amazing guide (felt like a friend by the end of our day), and we not only learnt heaps about wine, aboriginal history, and the Margaret River area we had a wonderful day. Started by canoeing on the Margaret River, which I was a bit nervous about, but was so easy to do and absolutely a highlight of... More

Hi Leone, thanks for such an awesome review! And thanks for sharing your experience about the canoeing. It is amazing how many people think it might not be for them but once they see how calm the water is and actually do it, they love it :) I know you guys originally wanted the Best of the Best Wine Tour...

I had a great day on Sean's tour, starting with kayaking on the peaceful Margaret River (no skill required), sampling local honey, and off the beaten track forays into the famous walking track with its dramtaic scenery. Not to mention a visit to the beaches and a behind the scenes lunch at Fraser Gallop winery including plenty of tasting. Definitely... More

Not having been to the Margaret River wine region for many years we were keen not to do the stock standard winery tour. We wanted to do a tour with style, a bit of luxury thrown in & definitely NOT the winery-hopping mini bus tours of old. From the moment Sean collected us at our hotel we knew we had... More

Sean Blocksidge is knowledgeable, friendly, and goes out of his way to ensure guests gain an optimum experience. If you don't like to laugh too much or see things that no one else has seen, don't pick Sean!!

We had a fantastic day out and about with Sean. Travelling to Margaret River is great for adults and less great for teenagers who have no real interest in wine. Sean and the discovery tour are a game changer. It was the best day of our trip to Perth and the Margaret River - The Margaret River came alive for... More

From the outset I should say I'm one of those people who read reviews on travel websites with a healthy dose of cynicism, and I'm also kind of skeptical about organised tours, preferring to get out into the country on my own. So, the kind of arrogant self-directed traveller who's more likely to fall off a cliff or get bitten... More

So, let me start by saying we have a minus dot due to a bit of a pickup snafu that was promptly remedied. I booked via email a week or so ahead because I was coming in from the states. Sean told me we would meet behind the visitor center, in the car park, at 1015. When, by 1030, no... More
