Loris is knowledgable and caring. She told our tour interesting stories about the vendors. She kept our tour on track when we went to the diffrerent places. We went to many places and the tour was go go go. We sampled a wide variety of things, coffee, wine, chocolate, honey, nougat, nuts, juice and cider. I did not know Swan Valley was so big. You are given a discount card for the many vendors. All the vendors are local. You are also given an environmental shopping bag for the goodies you can buy. There was water on the bus.

I’ve done a good and wine trail before with my wife. I’ve now had a couple of kids and the wife was busy, I had a free morning so why not take the kids out to see the Swan Valley? They loved the bus, being up front, tasting honey, ice cream, chocolate and even tried and loved nougat. Yahava was kind enough to make them a mini hot chocolate and they absolutely loved all the juices at Funk Cider/Michael Brothers. In all a great day, I think I bought something from almost every stop including Harris Organic Winery, what a hidden gem - and you got to meet the winemaker! Loris delivers her tours with professionalism, friendliness and aplomb. A great operator and an excellent tour business that is big enough to make it fun without it being too big to make it impersonal. A+ we will be back soon!

Thank you so much for your positive review. I'll pass on your high recommendation to Harris Organic Wines. It was a delight to welcome your entertaining young children. They seemed to be enjoying themselves at each venue. Looking forward to you all joining my Speed Grazing again some time in the future. Cheers Loris
