“Fun Filled Sunday !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

My 11 yr daughter won this wonderful prize. We ventured out on a Sunday morning to join this tour in Guildford. Although being locals ourselves we had never visited most of the places on this amazing tour. A great family fun activity. Loris our guide was an exceptional host, and is very passionate about her business, I commend her for that passion. I would not only recommend this tour to overseas visitors and those from the other states around Australia, but feel that anyone even locals would really benefit from this tour, something new, fresh, educational, and fun. We couldn't wait to get to each location to sample the beuatiful produce on offer. The children were running into each location, sooooo excited, so was my husband and he is 47 !!!!
Thanks heaps Loris we really do appreciate all your hardwork, and wonderful facts and figures regarding the food on offer and the history of the Swan Valley.

“Food, Wine and Beer Trail - Speed Grazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I thought this was great, I can't eat dairy and was concerned it would mean I'd miss out on a lot of the grazing but there was so much for me to have!! I would definately recomend this to anyone. If you're a coffee lover like me you will love the Yahava Koffee Works.. Lots of selection..
Would definately do it again!

“Taste Bud Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Had a really great time. Loris was friendly and informative and the venues that we visited covered a wide spectrum of alternatives. Loris' historical knowledge and commentary was excellent. The personnel at all of the venues were pleasant and friendly and there was no pressure to have to purchase the products. I would recommend this tour to both interstate and overseas visitors as well as to Perth locals.
