We signed up for the Margaret River day trip via Viator and then realised that it was a local tour company who conducted it. Read many reviews on Viator that said the trip was long and rushed but as we don't drive and had no time for a stay over at Margaret River, we opted for this still - with no regrets.

The tour was indeed long - 8.30am to 10.30pm, as the travelling time between Perth city and Margaret river was long. Our guide Jeff was simply excellent - he was so engaging and informative, we learnt a lot more about Perth through him. The tour itinerary included the Busselton Jetty, a winery with wine tasting, lunch at a brewery with an excellent platter and beer tasting!, Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, Mammoth Cave and Margaret River town itself.

Was it rushed? I guess for Singaporeans who are used to doing things quick and fast, we felt the pace was ok! Personally, I felt that we got a good overview of the region and just about enough time at each place.

This was a long trip but really good. Our guide Paddy was AMAZING. Wish we could have had more time at various places, but there truly was no time.

It was a long day but thoroughly enjoyed all if it. Each stop was interesting and the scenery was excellent. The bus was extremely comfortable. My husband is over 6 foot tall and had heaps of leg room. Our guide was very informative and also a smooth driver. If your stay in Perth is short this is a way to see a lot in one day.

I had fantastic time looking at the country site while Mike (the bus driver and the tour guide) was driving and pointing out interesting landmarks.
Mike was very friendly, polite and answering all questions in depth.
I thoroughly enjoyed myself!

We had a fantastic time on our Margaret River tour !. Our bus driver and tour operator , Chris, was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about all the regions we covered in the tour.

It was a long day but we covered a lot of ground that we would not have seen by ourselves. The Brewery tour was a highlight. The lunch platters were beautiful.

I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone who is short on time in Perth but wants to see as much as they can.

This is a great day out enabling you to get a taste of the Margaret River area whilst staying in Perth. You do however need to recognise that the lighthouse is a long way from Perth and you need to spend quite a lot of time on the coach. This isn't a problem! We were on the company's new coach which had very comfortable seats and where we were sitting airline premium economy size leg room. Our driver gave us informed commentary throughout the day and ran the whole day to very tight timescales so we made it back to the city by 9:30pm.
The day is full of variety, if a little frenetic at times. The stop at Bussleton Jetty after 2 hours is a coffee and toilet stop as there is not a lot there and there isn't much time in the schedule to do much more. Lunch at the Bootleg Brewery was very good. The stop at the winery (Sandalford) came almost immediately after lunch and was one of the highlights of the trip. The caves are sensational and the breeze at the lighthouse will blow you away. A quick stop in the town of Margaret River completes the sightseeing before an arranged evening meal (at own expense) which was good value - take advantage of it as you will be late back to the city and it may be difficult to find something at this time.
A great day out due to our driver, the sights visited and the company of the people on the trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

Great day out, visited many places, food provided along the way was very good, but a long day on a coach to achieve this.
