I actually went on this tour in December 2010 and have been meaning to write this review ever since (sorry Sean!)
We really enjoyed the food and wine pairing session and learnt lots. As it was an unexpectedly sunny day, Sean also took us canoeing on the spur of the moment down Margaret river which was lots of fun and not as energetic as it sounds. We bonded so well as a group that we all had drinks at a couple's honeymoon suite afterwards enjoying the wine that we had just bought. I would thoroughly recommend investing in this trip as opposed to one of the larger expeditions. Even though we were backpacking, we found the 'best of the best' wine tour to be a solid investment and are still talking about it, almost 3 years later.

This is the second time my wife and I went out for the day with Sean and it won't be the last.
It's a small intimate group, we only had 2 others with us. The day included some canoeing, walking, 4WD, wine tasting, honey tasting and lunch! Also some good commentary on the local flora and fauna.

Im certain we went to some of the most beautiful sites in WA, places that most locals wouldn't even know about.

Over all, a great day out if you don't want another "tour"....

Congratulations Sean for designing a tour to highlight the things that makes your beloved Margaret River region such a special part of the world. The wine, the food & the beautiful scenery and your infectious enthusiasm for the region make for a winning blend. We visited some great wineries, some of them not open to the general public, did a grape to glass wine tour at the impressive Cape Mentelle winery, followed by a very interesting food & wine matching experience and packed in some 4-Wheel driving to the stunning coast line. You could not ask for more combining these ingredients and lots of laughter along the way, as well as some insightful commentary made for a wonderful day out. A great tour and I can speak with some authority since I own a successful wine touring business in the Hunter Valley. A fact I did not reveal to Sean until the tour was finished. Thank you for a great day out.

But this trip is truly AWESOME ! Sean I want your job ! His enthusiasm, knowledge, wit and all round sense of fun make for a fantastic day full of amazing sights, insightful tales, fantastic food and superb wine. We took the discovery trip with Sean and we did just that, discovering places that you would never find without Sean.
If you don't do tours, do this one !! Thank you Sean for showing us your wonderful country, and for recommending our route back to Perth via the most amazing beaches I have ever seen.

This trip was the highlight of our tour , it was fun, informative and well organised.
Sean didn't mind answering our endless questions and made us laugh with his anectodes. He is the most friendly chap and seems to enjoy the tour almost as much as his guests do. The day was full of different things to do and apart from our fellow passengers and the winery staff we hardly saw another person. It's a great tour if you don't want to go with a full crowd in a coach. We didn't and wanted the personal touch and that is just what we had, thanks Sean. Would recommend the trip to anyone.
