“Fabulous idea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

I wish this was offered world-wide. Loris is a world leading entrepreneur in tourism if you ask me. If you like food and drink then you can not possibly disappointed! I can't wait to do the tour again and intend to book it for friends in Perth.

“Great way to spend an afternoon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

What a great way to explore the Swan Valley- the variety on the speed grazing tour is brilliant. Loris is a knowledgeable and passionate tour guide. The whole day was planned to perfection and really makes the most of your time in the swan valley. Some of our favourites were Yahava Koffee Works, Cape Lavender and Ironbark Brewery. Would highly recommend this tour.

“Swan Valley well worth the small effort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

OK, so it's no Margaret River. That said, the Swan Valley is right on Perth's doorstep and you'll be there before you've even packed the car for a Margaret River trip!

The wine might not be as good, but the food is certainly up to par. Honey's, jams, ice cream, fresh produce - a great variety and attractively priced. It's all close enough that you could drive here each Saturday, stay for lunch, and be back for the start of the football early afternoon. There's a couple of micro-breweries to dally at in case you decide to stay.

The tour is a doddle - Loris is passionate, committed, and will get you enthused about this little discussed area within 5 minutes from pick-up, and make you want to return shortly after.

If you're in Perth for a few days, have a few hours spare, and want to experience something different and fun, this tour is very highly recommended. Or if you're like us and live here, but were unaware of this area's close proximity and delicate charms, do it as well.
