We had a wonderful day exploring the hidden wonders of the Margaret River area with Sean. As the others booked for our tour had called in ill, we had an individually tailored day.
First Sean asked us what we had already seen, then whisked us up the river for a magic canoe paddle on the river. Next, we sat by a secret waterhole to taste local honeys and discuss Aboriginal history. Then the exclusive luncheon, wine tour and tasting were a treat, followed by a walk along part of the Cape to Cape track overlooking the stunning west coast.
Sean was full of good local knowledge, is great company and knows how to gear his tours to suit his customers.
A fantastic day. Highly recommend it. Thanks Sean.

I won't be able to add too much more than has already been said about this trip, so I will be quick and to the point.

This is a great trip to escape the major tourist coaches and routes, get your own personal insider with knowledge and get to some of the best spots off the beaten path.

The day is at a great pace, perfect for my wife and I in our 30s and for her visiting parents (won't mention their ages)!

The Canoeing, exclusive lunch in the vineyard, secret spots by creeks, off road driving and some walking mean you get to cover the things Margaret River is famous for and you get a good insight in to the area.

Sean if a good chap, is a pro at running this tour and you'll come away from this tour giving it 5 stars as well I have no doubt!

No review can do this experience justice!

Five of us booked the discovery tour and Sean's tour is unlike the run-of-the-mill tours. We started the morning appreciating the quiet beauty of the river on a canoe. No one got wet (Sean made sure of that) and it was a leisurely activity which even my granny could be capable of. Sean then organised a delicate gourmet lunch in the up and coming Fraser Gallop winery (which only Sean had access to). We ended the day with walk on the cape. When I look back, the highlights were the scenic quiet nooks in Margaret River and the awesome views we had on the cape walk. We went away with beautiful memories and our photographs would bear testament to that.

The entire experience was a collage of panoramic nature, great local food, up and coming winemakers and just the right amount of activity. I think Sean had put careful thought to designing this tour and we came away with an intimate and enjoyable experience of Margaret River.

I've been to Margaret River maybe 4-5 times over the years. This was an interesting way to see the region. Shawn has clearly done this many times... lots of interesting stories , and this is like an insider's look at the local area.

The canoeing is the best part. First time I've actually seen the river that gave this region its name.

The value and what contributes to the price is the intellectual property from developing the experience. The provided lunch and other details are not particularly costly.

The vineyard (Fraser Gallop) we were brought to was quite good... but it was a bit too much hard-sell.... or we might have bought some wine. Well, it was one of their competitors I visited subsequently which vouched for Fraser being good value.

If you're tired of the vineyards or have little interest in wine... this is a good alternative.
