Her delightful choice of venues is spot on to showcase what the gorgeous Swan Valley has to offer. For a new-comer to WA this would certainly impress you 100%. Even for an... More

Very informative, fun, action-packed (for the taste buds), interactive and interesting tour. Loris is brilliant and knows her stuff. She is passionate about the area and food and this just makes the tour a must! I also appreciated that she took us to smaller, family, organic/humane and local providers - keeping it local also helps those providers out. The weather... More

I spend a great morning with my mum on this Taste Buds Speed Grazing Tour. This was my first time, but the second for my mum (and she's been living in Perth for almost 20 years).. There's always something new to learn AND taste! A fun morning out, with our excellent, informative, and genuinely passionate tour guide, Loris. Highly recommended.

Interesting experience. Recommend for people who want something a bit different to your normal wine tours. This concentrates a bit more on the food!

Loris is very approachable and warm, so it was no surprise she's been in the industry for 18 years. The 20 mins to get their in the bus was filled with interesting history of the tour the region.

A fabulous afternoon in the beautiful Swan Valley. A small group of sixteen which made the speed grazing flow effortlessly. The places we visited were varied and interesting and Loris had a lovely friendly but professional manner. I would recommend this tour to locals and visitors to our beautiful state.
