We spent a lovely Spring Saturday in September on this tour. It was amazing! Loris is a delightful lady who is extremely passionate not only about her business, but also about her customers. Two things really impressed us; her knowledge of the Swan Valley, and the utmost respect she has for the business owners in the area. Loris, thank you... More

Thanks Daniel for taking the time to register your review. I really enjoyed sharing the Swan Valley with your family and particularly enjoyed young Blake's active involvement. He's a great little fellow. Looking forward to you joining a morning tour next time. Cheers Loris More

If you are looking for a expert on the Swan Valley Region, Loris is the girl for you. The tour is fun, (not too fast for my 70 year old Nanna, but plenty of time in each spot), and full of great history, stories and experiences! A wonderful way to spend the day

When our group of six signed up for Loris Harding's "Speed Grazing Taste Bud Tour", we certainly got more than we bargained for! On the return trip home, we all concluded that this tour is a "must" experience not only for visitors to the West, but also for us, locals, wishing to augment their knowledge of and appreciation for Western...

Went with 2 friends to Perth and booked the morning foodie tour with Loris at Swan Valley. We are so glad we did! Loris was warm and knowledgeable. It was obvious that she is passionate about food, the growers and their stories. Would recommend to friends!

Enjoyed the trip, a little bit rush for the trip. But it really do cover all the places. Its very educated. The wood fired pizza actually doesnt cover in the fees, but its still worth to try.

We went on a half-day tour of the Swan Valley and LOVED it. It was so great to see so many places in the space of only a few hours. Loris was a knowledgeable and friendly host and we learnt so much about the history of the Swan Valley as well as having full tummies at the end of the... More
