We booked the discovery tour with Sean on our first full day at Margaret River. What a spectacular day from beginning to end. Canoeing down the beautiful Margaret River, tasting the local honey at an aboriginal site, a walk along the cape to cape track, lunch and wine tasting at a local winery, all with a very knowledgeable, humorous guide...

Sean was an incredible host who made all six of us in our small group feel very comfortable during our all-day tour of the Margaret River. He was easy to get in touch with and get along with from our first email inquiry to him to the last few moments we were together with him. I had told him that... More

We had a magical family day with Sean. From start to finish Sean was a fantastic, engaging, ultra knowledgeable and safety conscious guide and took us to some awesome places. When we sat down as a family at Christmas and compared our top experiences of the year we all included our day with Sean. Kayaking, wild orchids, rare birds, fresh... More

Very interesting, fun and active tour. Great views of the river and ocean, very friendly and knowledgeable guide and lovely lunch in the winery. A great change from the average wine tour.

I went on this tour with my partner, on our first day in the Margaret river region and what an excellent experience. We cannot talk more highly of this tour, from cruising down the Margaret river in a canoe, to lunch at Fraser gallop and a walk on the cape to cape trail, the day was ideal. This is not... More

My wife and I went on the Discovery tour which was attended by one other couple, so just the five of us in Sean's big Land Rover (max is 3 couples) and had just the best day. Sean is very knowledgeable but also very relaxed and informal and makes very easy company for the day. We did some kayaking in... More

It was my pleasure and I'm so glad you enjoyed the day. You just summed up perfectly why I call the Discovery Tour 'the tour for people who don't do tours'. Small groups, personalized and and some off-the-beaten-track experiences that you probably won't discover on your own. Great to have your company for the day, Sean More

Oh my god, what a tour. Is it possible to give 6/5? You really can't pack any more into a tour. The day was unbeatable. Sean runs small tours only (maximum 6 people) and that makes it personal and fun. Sean takes you round the tour in a LandRover Discovery so luxury starts there as it glides over 4WD territory...

Wow! Awesome review thank you. So glad all that wildlife timed their drop-ins so well for us on the day. As someone who has done a fair bit of travel myself, I know how much I prefer to travel in a small group rather than in a big bus or even a mini-van. Through the Discovery Tour I deliver what...

Started the day with a short drive off road, stopping briefly to be informed about flora and fauna. A trip up the Margaret River in a canoe where it is calm,serene and a place to become one with the sublime surroundings. We saw a pair of black cockatoos and mussels along the banks in the water. Easy canoeing for any... More

In summary: Perfect tour. Not too many people, not too long in one place and not a huge amount of time spent in the vehicle. Don't be put of by the canoeing. It's very easy and no risk of falling in (unless you want to then I'm sure it could be arranged). Let Sean know of any issues (fitness or... More

Cheers guys for a great review. It's always great when someone isn't too sure about something but is willing to give it a try and ends up loving it. Thumbs up to canoeing and honey tasting! And yes, the river is calm, still, serene and beautiful. The canoeing is a must-do for any trip to Margaret River! Cheers, Sean More
