It was a great day with Sean. The behind-the-scenes tour of Cape Mantelle was great, topped off with a fantastic wine and food matching lunch. Brilliant way to learn about how the two should and shouldn't go together!

We really appreciated the exclusive access to the smaller, up-and-coming wineries, that made us feel like locals.

Throughout the day, Sean shared insights on the history and future of the Margaret River region. It was a highlight of our trip.

We booked the best of the best wine tour and that whats it was. The tour was good because there are only 6 people in total on this tour, which made the tour more personal. The tour suits people that want to avoid tours with children on. We were treated to visits of up and coming winneries and well established winneries too. This made the experience even more enjoyable.
The day included a tour of a well established winery and this included showing all the aspects of the wine making process from the walking around the vineyards, to seeing the fermentation process and the wine been stored in the barrels and then been bottled. The degustation lunch with wine was excellent way to round of the winery tour.
The day is finished with ocean views and a fuller understanding of how the weather/land/sea etc all play an important role in the wine making in the Margaret River region.
Sean who runs the tours provides an excellent day out. He is very friendly and extremelly knowledgable about the region,including its culture, environment, wine making etc. Thankyou sean we will return in the future.

I booked this tour after seeing all the great reviews on trip advisor and I wasn't let down! We only had 2 days to spend in Margaret River region and we definitely got the most out of it by doing this tour! Sean was a great tour guide, very friendly and full of knowledge!

One of the best parts of the day was being able to canoe along the river, it was so peaceful!
I would recommend this to anyone who wants more than just a wine tour!

Check out my blogpost for my experience :-)

Sean provides an unforgettable day out that encapsulates all that is great about Margaret River. From a magnificently serene canoe ride on the river to a view of the cliffs and ocean to die for, with a guide who lives and breathes his tour. If you have only a short time in the area and want the best snapshot in a day, this is it. Cannot recommend highly enough. David & Lyn
