Sean's tour was magic. We hadn't really checked out the itinerary. so when he said we'd go canoeing and bush walking as well as tasting some fine wines we were in awe! The day was perfect, and Sean's obvious passion for what he does just takes you along on the ride. Definitely a tour for those who don't do tours!

When doing my research I found the Margaret river Discovery Tours. Sean our guide was great. Full of all the information about the region as well as taking us to places we would have missed as they are accessable only by a 4 WD drive vehicle. Canoeing was a true highlight as well. Exploring the natural beauty of the Margaret river. A truly memorable experience. Thankyou Sean, Paul & Janet, Qld Australia

This was by far one of the best days I have had out since we toured France last year. Being from Perth we thought we knew Margaret River. There was the cheese and chocolate factories and a whole heap of wine. And then we met Sean and he blew us away. Canoeing, cliffs, cabernet, kangaroos and cockatoos. We saw it all. Highly recommended. Sean's passion and enthusiasm cannot be faulted. From the moment he collected us I knew it was going to be worth every penny. If you want to experience Margs rather than be herded around like a heap of cattle in a bus then spoil yourself with this tour.

My husband I were recommended this tour with Sean by my sister and her husband who did the tour a few years ago. The day exceeded all of our expectations. Sean has a way to make the day involved, fun and special. One member of our small group had arrrived the night before from Singapore, he only had one day in Margaret River and he wisely chose this tour to spend his day (he was flying home that evening!). And he, like us, enjoyed his day immensely. Sean's knowledge and enthusiasm for Margaret River and all its offerings is amazing...

Sean,owner and tour guide,really loves to show you his backyard of the Margaret River region,his passion is infectious.You could not meet someone more enjoyable to spend a day opening your eyes to the wine-growing area but also other aspects of this area.
We opted for the "Discovery" tour rather than just the wine tour as you can go to most of the multitude of wineries yourself. There is a maximum of 6 guests on each day and you travel in comfort in a Range Rover. The morning consisted of exclusive access to a part of the Margaret River for a canoeing excursion. My wife and I are both 65 and she is a little vary of small boats --- don't worry,Sean has all the gear and it is a very safe but beautiful experience. Then back to the car for a trip to a coffee house overlooking the ocean for a free cappaccino etc whilst watching some whales. Then off- road again to another exclusive access to a secret aboriginal site (loverly waterfall) with full explanations as to the local history.All the time whilst travelling you can ask Sean any questions or he just informs on the history,wine making and growing,wildflowers etc.
Then to us the highlight of the trip, lunch at a vineyard not open to the public.Not any vineyard,but the one which won 'best red wine in the world' at the London Wine Show.Sean brings the lunch(sourced locally and truly gourmet0,whilst sampling the reds and whites of this wonderful vineyard and sitting in the shed with the stored barrels of wine.All topped of with a casual talk with the winemaker himself (currently nominated for Wine Maker of the Year).
Then off-road again to view the rugged coastline,wildflowers and then searching (and finding) kangaroos requested by the young English couple.
At day's end Sean can recommend good local restaurants,wineries and places to see if you are staying in the area for awhile. We can recommend "Voyagers" as a beautiful vineyard destination,again as advised by Sean.
A lovely way to get an appreciation of the area,and a memorable day.
