My husband and I did the "Savoury Afternoon Food, Wine & Beer Trail".

Went on the "Savoury Afternoon Good Food, Wine and Beer Trail" tour. I found out about it through a Meetup group in Perth, and I have been looking forward to this for months! I went with 14 other girls and had an absolute blast. Loris is a fun, well-spoken, knowledgeable tour guide with a brilliant business model. We were given... More

I took a few of the girls from my Meet Up group on the afternoon tour and it was a hit. There was a nice balance of booze, food and coffee. A lot of us are not from Perth so it was also an education session on the history of Perth. It is speed grazing so don't expect to spend... More

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

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.
