Terrific Host. Small groups, personal tours. Perfect way to spend Sunday afternoon and see the Swan Valley. Honey, chocolate, wine, coffee, lavendar scones and beer tasings all in one afternoon. Last stop at Iron Bark brewery with wood-fired pizza and beer tastings in a great beer garden. Perfect.
Host was lovely and friendly. Many places were discovered in the time. I thought there could have been more tastings at a couple of places.

this was an excellant tour, lots of lovely tasters from very small outlets, good variety, I even bought 12 bottles of excellant wine. I would reccomend it to anyone, I did the morning sweet tour, and next time I will try the afternoon one.
Novel way to experience a wide variety of Swan Valley attractions. Thoroughly enjoyed our time with Lorus.
We did the morning tour and it was most enjoyable. Small group numbers make for a more personalized experience and you don't need to fight your way thorugh the crowds for a tasting. Most of the tastings were generous and most places we visited were informative and gave a perfect insight into what the Swan Valley is about. Only irk (through no fault of the tour operator) was the fact that people had to be reminded not to double dip. In this day and age surely we should be informed enough to know that this is not the done thing. - unfortuantely though there were still people doing exactly this. All in all a great morning out will look forward to doing the afternoon tour when we return to Perth.
Loris was a great guide! she explains everything you needa know about swan river and was especially patient towards elderly who took longer to get on and off the bus. It could be better if we are able to stay longer at each stop as there were some stops that I feel rushed and did not have ample time.
My friend and I were greatly disappointed. The trip never was called off due to insufficient participants.
1st- the samples were very small, not enough to satisfy any type of hunger
2nd- this is essentially a shopping trip, a lady drops you off at various shops to encourage you to spend more money
3rd- Overpriced, not worth it! You can drive to swan valley yourself and go to all the places and have the same experience, the places are very close in distance - and there was little to know special treatment for being with the tour except for coffee and wine, all customers of these shops get the same samples.
4th-The weather put a damper on events of the day , it was wet, cold, and rainy and a few of the stops were outdoor.
On a high note, The Tour guide was very nice thats why i gave it 1 star
