Tour operator no show!
Natasha_L, Apr 2022
We turned up at the correct time and place, the bus driver was there but the tour operator did not arrive. She then told the bus driver it was the wrong week. Our ticket said the correct day and time, we tried to contact viator and Taste Bud Tours but couldn't get hold of anyone to get a refund. This was meant to be a romantic anniversary gift that was a huge disappointment.
Must do in the Swan Valley

Tulasi R, Oct 2017
This was certainly one of the highlights of our Perth trip.While most 'gourmet tours' offer predominantly wine tasting, this tour offers a large variety of the beautiful Swan valley produce. Loris' arrangements were excellent and everywhere we went there were seperate arrangements made so that we could speed graze . Enjoyed the food trail thoroughly

Very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide/Loris/ Lots of important and interesting facts about Swan river, the valley Great venues,yummy tastings.probably another winery would be a good adding to the tour!!!

Jasmine W, Sep 2015
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

THERESA G, May 2014
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.

Carol R, Jan 2013
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.

Natalie R, Oct 2012
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.

Pei Si Jenny L, Oct 2012
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.
