Booked this trip after reading the positive reviews on trip advisor and I have to say we were not disappointed. The day was excellent and we both enjoyed it a lot. Sean the tour guide is lovely, it's a rare quality to find someone funny, not boring and enthusiastic about their local area. We got to see areas we would never have found by ourselves and that we would never have seen on a mini bus trip. A great balanced day giving everything just the right amount of time so you weren't rushed or bored.

Canoeing was excellent and we found it easy even though we had not done it before and I was a little nervous! I got to see Whales and Kangaroos and try some lovely wine. All in all an exceptional trip that I would recommend to anyone.

Cannot praise this trip enough :)

All the reviews of Sean's tour say pretty much the same thing - that he shows you a side of Margaret River you'll never see as a tourist (and probably even as a resident), and that Sean himself is a very likeable, engaging, and knowledgeable host. This is all true - and the best part is that even though you will have high expectations from reading all these stellar reviews, your expectations will be surpassed in some measure. Whether it's the sight of a rare spider orchid, an up close encounter with a blue tongue lizard, the reflective spiritual experience of the aboriginal bush, the excellent lunch and oustanding wines in a unique setting, or the awe-inspiring views from high up on the Wilyabrup cliffs, there is something for everyone in this fabulous day out.

We wanted to explore Margaret River and wanted to have time to enjoy the varied attractions of the area. We are really glad we choose to go with Sean. he collected us from our beach house in Prevelly in his 4WD. There were 5 of us on the tour.

Canoeing on the Margaret River was sensational. Even though Stu, my husband, and I were scared, the rest of the party were very supportive and we thoroughly enjoyed the ride. For once in his life Stu didn't fall into the water!

It was good to have somebody with a good knowledge of the area to show us around. Tasted some local honey's sitting by a waterfall. Then we went over to a local winery and had a leisurely lunch while sampling some of the excellent wines.

The final part of our day concluded with a part of the cape to cape trail. What more could you ask for in one eventful day.

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
