This is a great day out and Sean Blocksidge is funny, funny man. Sean collected us from our hotel where we met the other guys on the tour. Fair to say that we were a bit apprehensive about not knowing the other guys on the tour, but Sean is the consummate host, tour guide and facilitator of fun. The degustation lunch was a highlight, we learned a great deal about wine. We were welcomed at each winery, and as smaller group - and obviously Sean's contacts, we were very well taken care of. Highly recommend to anyone with even the slightest interest in wine, through to the experienced wine fancier. Jamie & Marg, Gladstone Qld

We were provided with an excellent lunch, knowledge of history, exploration of the local geography and flora and freedom to photograph the specialness.
It's been said that this tour is more like a day out with friends and this is because of Sean's talent at making people feel comfortable. Nothing is too much effort.
Passion for one's work is an overused term which therefore can lose some meaning but I can't think of better words to describe Seans feel for this role.
You will feel a real spirit of Place when exploring this amazing area with Sean.
Thanks

We now live overseas and had toured with MRD Co. a couple of years ago, It was a standout experience so we brought a group of friends back to help celebrate a significant birthday.

Usually Sean take a small group (up to 6) but we had 15 and wanted to do the "Best of the best" wine tour on one day and a section of the Cape to Cape track the next. Sean organised everything including getting extra transport to take the larger group. On the Cape to Cape track he also organised local botanist Jane Scott to come and along and take us through all the things we were seeing from the Karri forest to the wildflowers - which were out in profusion at this time of year,

He was very flexible as our numbers were changing up until a week before and communciation was excellent.

We had a great time on these excellent tours. Price was good value as well.

If all the Australian tourist industry was as good and professional as the MRD Co. it would be right up there with the best of the best.

This was a unique opportunity to be guided around by a well informed and personable guy who had prepared well for access to non public areas of discovery. The day was enhanced by good weather and the small group, only four of us. A canoe trip on the river was a total success and the scenery accessed by the 4WD at wildflower time made for great photography. The lunch was an insight into local produce and the venue in the barrel room of the winery, although somewhat cold, was a highlight. No wonder Sean is WA guide of the year. A great experience.

Sean gets you in touch with nature, history and the rugged true beauty of margaret river. Don't be afraid of the canoeing as Sean makes it exceptionally easy, no wet feet.
And the winery mmm mmm
