I have to say that the main reason my husband and I took this tour was because of the the fab reviews on TripAdvisor. The second reason - the clincher - was I convinced my husband with the company's tagline: For people who don't do tours. And we were not disappointed. From the moment the 4-wheel drive veered off- road, I thought Oh Yea. I would say the whole day was like a fine wine, with all the different characteristics to make it amazing. From canoeing and hiking at the Margaret River, to coffee at the beach, to al fresco dining at an exclusive by-appointment-only winery, to off roading and hiking near the sea. All sprinkled with science, history and humor. And did I mention wine tasting? Pure gold. Even my "I don't do tours husband" gave it two thumbs up.

We had a fantastic tour of the Margaret River including canoeing, short hike on the Cape Track and an great visit and lunch at local boutique winery. We brought our 10 year old daughter on the tour and Sean made sure she was fully engaged the whole day and we all thoroughly enjoyed the day and gave us a much better perspective on the Margaret River region.

If your time in Margaret River is limited this outstanding tour covers everything you need. From a canoe up the river, a walk along the cliffs to a beautiful lunch at an exclusive vineyard. Sean is great host for the day, knowledgeable but casual in the way he educates you. Numbers limited by the seats in his very accommodating Discovery which makes the whole day very personal. Could not recommend it highly enough. Fully deserves the remarkable reviews it has.

i had already done a lot of reading about this tour so i was pretty sure it would be great and it was. sean has obviously done his homework and created a unique tour that combines heaps of fun facts as well as a sensitive overview of the indigenous and colonial history. he is also very well versed in the wine industry/story of the region and gives an honest and insightful view that other tours seem to ignore. the lunch at the estate was just fantastic - it was a beautiful day so that helped! the canoing, four wheel drive and bush walk was most impressive - this is a 'must do' tour.

The benefit of this tour is that 1. it's for small groups up to 7 persons. 2. It is a varied tour: within a day you do get the chance of beign active, enjoy the outdoor by canoeing along the river and get an insight of the local wine production by visiting a winery. The tour owner is a local who shares his knowledge, passion and secrets about this great place which is Margaret River.
