The informative, relaxing cruise around the Swan Valley began in the City at around 1:30 pm on a hot day (37 deg C). The comfortable air-conditioned tour minibus took 4 couples, via Guildford, into the region to around 7 popular food and drink destinations. The en-route commentary by our guide and driver, Loris, was humorous and interesting, focusing on the... More

Thanks Rob for taking the time to provide useful and practical feedback. Hoping you will join us again for perhaps the morning tour which offers additional 'tastes of the Valley' including unique bush tucker foods. The Guildford pickup may be more suitable for you as this offers free street parking as a bonus. Once again thanks for your insightful and... More

I live in Perth but, as is common, I don't see the sights until friends and family come to visit. This trip opened my eyes to so many wonderful, home-grown businesses not 20 minutes from my house. We will definitely be re-visiting most of these places. Loris was lovely and had an in-depth knowledge of the area. My mum and... More

Excellent tour guide - Loris is very informative and knows a lot about the local history. All of the staff from the various establishments that we visited were very helpful and friendly and more than willing to answer any questions we had regarding their produce. The variety of foods to taste was amazing and the speed with which we moved... More

Brilliant tour, you get to go to so many different places and try a variety of things but you never feel rushed. All the locations were interesting and had great samples, the tour itself is very informative and all round a great day out. Highly recommend.

The tour took us round various eateries in Guilford along the swan river, and provided many opportunities to taste the best of Swan River's little businesses. Loris was a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable about the history and the current affairs of the area, and very good about keeping us fed and on time during the tour!

Good day out book a house in buselton or dunsbourough for the weekend for everyone and go as a group the bigger the group the better. Have done with smaller groups but you never know who you will end up with on the bus sometimes people are there for a different type of experience.
