My younger sister is studying at Curtin University, so my mother and I traveled all the way to South West Australia from Washington, DC, USA. In researching the area, I came across Sean and his amazing tour. Out of the 2.5 weeks we spent in this beautiful region, there was nothing better than the day spent with Sean. I have... More

What a wonderful day! Sean was a great host and truly made us feel like we were "one of the locals" for a day. Pricier than some tours but a terrific value for all we did. Best day of our whole trip to WA.

That is Sean's promotional slogan so as we fitted the profile decided to go with it. When booking - even though a bit apprehensive about conoeing he assured us we would be fine/safe, & we were, & so glad we did. Also we liked the idea of it being a very small grour tour [max. 6]. The day included real... More

This was an amazing da. Sean took us on the Margaret River (no one was even close to getting wet or falling in) in canoes, we saw kangaroos, an amazing winery, a lovely ancient watering hole, and had a short hike on the Cape to Cape trail, ending with some of the best coastline views in WA. Do this tour!

Thanks Caron. Yes there is a river in Margaret River and its a shame so many people visit without seeing it. Our gentle canoeing is a great way to experience the serenity of the river and, like you say, you don't get wet or fall in. Cheers, Sean More

If your not in the Margaret river area for long, you must book this experience. Sean is a great host and source of local and cultural info. Started the day in a canoe along the Margaret river, so serene and peaceful, felt connected in a way you can't imagine. Next stop for coffee and our first look at the massive... More

I have done wine tours in every major wine region in Australia...this was by far and away the best. The canoeing, scenic walks, food and wine were all excellent but what makes this tour really stand out is the guide Sean.

My whole family, including four children from 20 to 26, took this tour and we thoroughly enjoyed it from the moment Sean stepped out of his four wheel drive and made a joke! The day was without doubt the highlight of our Easter stay in the Margaret River. Sean has an impressive knowledge and respect for the region, its environment... More

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Australia. It began with a tranquil and relaxing canoe trip down the Margaret River. We then stopped in a scenic spot to taste honey and learn about Australia's past. The winery stop was fantastic, where we learned about the wine making process and got to sample many different wines before enjoying... More

Cheers Matt. Yes, I do book up pretty early so great advice to anyone travelling to Margaret River to book their tours at the same time as they book their accommodation, so they don't miss out. Especially important in the peak seasons. Hope you have had a fabulous holiday, Sean More
