This tour was worth every penny! The tour guide was very informative and went out of her way to make the tour really enjoyable. We had many tastings and it was all delicious. Would definitely recomment this tour to anyone.

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

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

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.
