“Best two days!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We did the Canoe & Caves trip on Good Friday and it was great fun. Sorry can't remember our guides names but they were both great. We learned such a lot about the area enjoyed a welcome, tasty lunch - even tried the witchetty grub! A great way to see and enjoy the lovely Margaret River.
The next day we did the wine tour and certainly was one of the best days of our visit to WA. Colin was our guide. He was a great host and had a good knowledge of the wines in the region too. Can't remember how many wines we tasted - must have been in excess of 30 - and good measures too! We were only a small group on the tour but we had such good fun - everyone took a bit of gentle ribbing from Colin which we all took in great spirit gave us lots of laughs. Lunch again was very tasty. I really recommend everyone should do these trips - the best two days in Margaret River.

Wow you did have a full weekend. Good to see you did the two tours in the right order, the other way around can be a bit hectic. Doing both the tours is a great way to spend the weekend because you do get the full Margaret River Experience from River to Vineyard. Excitement and indulgence.
Thank you for taking the time to review us.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Today was wonderful! We went on a Bushtuckers wine tour and had a fantastic time. There was only 13 of us on the tour, we all got on really well, had a lot of laughs, and tasted some superb local wines, beers, chocolate and cheese. Peter was our driver for the day and he was the best. Patient (and he needed to be!), informative and a great guy. We visited three wineries, a liqueur specialist, the Bootleg brewery , choc and cheese places, and had a delicious meal, provided by Bushtuckers, in the middle. You don't have to eat the kangaroo, crocodile or wichety grub if you don't want to, there's plenty of other stuff, plus bread.

I can't praise this company enough. It was fantastic from start to finish. Cheers!
