Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When i was researching my 3D2D Margaret River wineries tour I contacted a number of drivers/guides. It was immediately clear that Rob was a cut above the rest, in terms of his knowledge of wines & wineries (20+ years of experience himself in the wine industry), access to small batch artisanal winemakers, and knowing the best restaurants, accommodations in the area.

TL;DR is if you are serious about your wines and making the most of your limited time Margaret River then you want Rob to be your guide & designated driver.

Before our trip, I liased with Rob over e-mail, planning our itinerary of wineries & restaurants together. Once settled, Rob took care of all the reservations and sent me a PDF of the itinerary broken down daily.

Rob picked us up each day from our hotel in a luxury sedan, and at each winery, he would accompany us in to hand us off to the hosts. It was warming to see how respected Rob was by the locals at our hotel & destinations. Rob also made sure to keep us on schedule… harder than it looks! And he’s relatable - he’s Aussie, he’s British, he lived in HK for decades!

We had an amazing time and anytime we get asked about Margaret River now Rob gets an immediate mention.

Hi Jon, Thank you for your kind words. And it was a pleasure to have you all on a tailored and private tour, with a keen focus on your interest in small batch wine making, and with the opportunity of meeting the makers, and sharing their passion! I always like to engage with my clients at the outset, and by doing so build the perfect itineray. It is also important to match expectations to deliverable outcomes, and your collective knowledge of wines was such, that I was able to include some wonderfully immersive experiences...as the day progressed. Would love to have you guys on tour again:) Rob Dewar

We booked a 4-hour Wine Tour with Rob, what a great experience! He is an excellent guide, knows the area and its history, customs and wildlife. He smoothed the way for us at the wineries and made sure we got VIP treatment. There was always something to talk about with him while he drove smoothly and carefully from winery to winery.

Thank you Nigel, it is always such a pleasure to receive a positive review:) I enjoyed the time we spent together, and feel very privileged to have been selected by you to explore this beautiful region. As you know, I have been employed in one capacity or another within the Margaret River wine region...for more than twenty years now, and the relationships I have built up through continuous networking, really does help pave the way for us all:) Cheers Rob

Rob from MyDriver planned, booked and arranged the most wonderful day out in the Margaret River for our family of four!
We visited caves and a garden maze, along with wine tastings and also enjoyed a gorgeous lunch at Vasse Felix. All organised and booked by Rob.
Rob arrived at our hotel in Bunker Bay early and has the top of the range Kia Carnival with all electric options and amazing amounts of space. Our family of four was plenty comfortable!
Rob provided water for all of us and also shared his amazing wealth of knowledge on wines and the MR wine region as we made our way through the day. And for two of the wineries we visited, we were the early customers there! Fabulous private experience.
It was one of my favourite family holiday days ever and we look forward to going back to WA again in the future. Thanks again Rob!

Can’t say how much out family of 5 enjoyed our day touring Margaret River with Rob. We made a few suggestions and Rob then designed a great itinerary which covered what we wanted. The car was brilliant, plenty of room to easily seat 5 adults in comfort. I have been with other private tours which this has not been the case. It makes a huge difference in the experience. We had water provided and Rob gave us informative commentary about the district along the way. Thanks again Rob for a great day! Kind regards Troy

Thanks Troy for your positive review, which is of course very much appreciated. I am a firm believer with engaging with my customers at the outset in building and booking the perfect tour itinerary...and your participation with this, made the process so much easier. And of course having such an amazing touring vehicle to show you the region in safety and comfort, is always an added bonus. I am very grateful for your business:) Rob Dewar

A great way to explore a variety of Cellar Doors. Rob was very helpful at putting together our itinerary, offering suggestions to help us plan our day. The private tour was perfect for what we wanted to do and Rob's extensive knowledge of the area was much appreciated. We highly recommend spending the day with Rob and visiting the places he arranged for our trip.

Hi Anne, Sorry it has taken me quite so long in responding to your amazing review. I absolutely love doing small group private tours with interesting people, and am delighted to read that you all had fun exploring the region:) No two tours are ever the same, and this has allows me to build an eclectic and often unique range of experiences to offer my guests. All the best Rob Dewar

I had never been to the Margaret River area before and wanted to find someone that knew the wines, knew the winemakers and could get us into the right places. Rob Dewar was a great find and an engaging travel coordinator. We were introduced to terrific wines and met the winemakers behind them. This was a real treat for me. And it's not a canned trip; it's completely bespoke. The key is communication so that Rob can design the experience that you want. I recommend him!

Hi J, Thank you for your generous and positive review. You are absolutely right about communication, and it started with you getting in touch and being clear about what you hoped to achieve whilst here in this beautiful wine region. I am so pleased you enjoyed the experience of meeting the winemakers and sharing the passion that goes into each and every glass! Of course you also had the opportunity of sampling some truly impressive 'paddock to plate' local produce in company with a glass or two of wine. I really enjoyed our time together, and believe you have taken with you some unforgettable memories of your visit to Perth and the truly spectacular Margaret River wine region. Warm Regards Rob Dewar

Rob was incredibly helpful in assisting to plan and organise a wonderful day to celebrate an engagement. His knowledge of the area, wineries to visit and scenery to take in was so helpful. All planning took place via email and Rob was prompt in his correspondence. Thanks so much for a wonderful day and a quality service, would highly recommend.

Hello Mannon, What can I say, but it takes two...and in this regard you were easy to communicate with, and very responsive to suggestions for what was a momentous occasion for you both:) We were also blessed with beautiful winter weather and an awesome sunset! I really enjoyed spending the day with you both and for the opportunity of showing you this amazing region that offers such a diversity of epicurean and visual delights. Thank you so much for your kind words. Kind Regards Rob Dewar (Your host)

We booked the Epicurean Tour with Rob and had a wonderful time. A major plus was that there were just the two of us so we had exclusive access to Rob's time and extensive knowledge - and it really is extensive. He gave us plenty of pointers for the rest of our stay in the region (some of which we had the time to take up) and throughout the tour he was utterly charming. If ever we get back to the region (we're talking 9000 miles away) we'll certainly strongly consider another day like this one.

It was a pleasure to make your acquaintance Richard, and I am so glad that you both enjoyed the 'Epicurean' experience' of the Wine & Food Tour of Margaret River. And as you have pointed out, having a private and exclusive experience such as this in the company of only family and friends...is really rather enjoyable! I very much appreciated our conversations and time spent together, and look forward to welcoming you both back to this unique and beautiful Southwest capes region. Sincerely Rob Dewar Host/Guide

Four of us had an amazing day out with Robert. A tailored itinerary, excellent local knowledge meant we throughly enjoyed our tour. Robert is charming and is clearly very well respected locally after a distinguished career in the local wine industry. All his recommendations for sightseeing and dining were perfect. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for such a positive review and please accept my apologies for this late response. To be honest it almost seems unfair, as I thoroughly enjoy what I do...and it actually doesn't feel like work to me! And having the opportunity to meet such amazing and dare I say like minded people to myself, who are also so appreciative...is truly one of life's real pleasures. I am so glad that you all enjoyed yourselves! Sincerely Rob Dewar
