  • A very different style of work Christmas do this year. Rather than just your standard lunch, our afternoon with Taste Bud Tours, ably escorted by our delightful hostess Loris, was much more entertaining and, surprisingly, very informative! The Swan Valley is a veritable treasure trove of wineries, gourmet food establishments, and other amazing places... Our tour commenced with an eye opening coffee experience, on to sample delicate perfection in the form of freshly baked lavender scones... chocolate sampling and of course, the wine tasting that the Valley is famous for. With military precision we were escorted into the establishments on time, given a specific time frame in which to partake of the specialities on offer, then off to the next venue. Local knowledge and a great sense of humour enables Loris to be the kind of Host who keeps you intrigued and enjoying your tour with gusto. Even a minor setback with one establishment keeping their closure a secret even from Loris didnt make her blink. A quick phone call and we were whisked away to sample beer... which turned out well given the very warm afternoon. Thoroughly recommend this amazing business run by this talented lady. If you have guests from elsewhere, a work function, or want to make new friends and join in with a tour, this is definitely one of the best opportunities for exploring our city's heritage.
  • If you're going to Perth you must do the Taste Bud Tours. Loris was our guide and you learn so much from her it's a must-have book
  • A fantastic tour, operated by a warm and profession lady who clearly is passionate about Perth and it's surrounds. Will definitley go again .Thanks Loris!
  • I had the pleasure of taking my significant other and a bunch of her friends out on the afternoon tour a few months ago. It's a whirlwind tour of the beautiful Swan Valley but it never really feels rushed, just well organised. We got to kick back at the end of it all with some wood fired pizza and some interesting beers. Loris is a fantastic and knowledgeable guide who has obviously spent a good many hours researching some very interesting facts on Perth's wine country. It's amazing they're able to fit in so much within such a short distance. Who needs Margaret River with this on your doorstep?
  • Loris is a spectacular and informative tour guide, keeping us entertained and informed throughout. A few different options for tours, and any of them will provide good value as you get free samples at each venue, including some samples which are not made available to the general public. Our Sunday afternoon tour had over 25 tastings and learned an abundance about the places we went as well as some local history. Because Loris works with the venues regularly, they knew we were coming and were ready for us. Food lovers of all ages will enjoy the tour - family-friendly but kids may not enjoy the tastings as much. While you could easily spend a couple hours at any of the locations, it is SPEED grazing and gives you a wonderful taste of the Swan Valley; for locals, you'll easily pick favourites to return to. We opted to order pizza and damper at the brewery - delicious wood-fired pizza! Of the thirteen countries I have traveled and toured in, this was by far the best service I have ever experienced, and I look forward to taking another tour with Loris.
