We loved Sean's discovery tour when we were in W.A. We were also impressed with the range of activities and new experiences we were exposed to. We loved the canoeing in brilliant sunshine, the tasting of honey in the drizzling rain, the tasting of wines & lunch under the tree amongst the vines, the 4WDriving and the laughter. We will remember it forever and it leaves us with very positive memories of W.A.

Sean Is a wonderful host - with our group of just six people he escourted us around the Margaret River area keeping us informed and entertained. We had a great lunch sitting outside under a tree for shade eating the local produce Sean had brought for lunch. We had some wonderful wine, with no pressure to buy, and saw the beuatiful scenary of the area.

Do this trip - it is truly memorable.

Sean already has so many good reviews but I just have to add my endorsement too as most places don't always live up to their hype but this one does and there's more in store too.
We spent a few days in Margaret River for our wedding anniversary and it was our second trip there so we thought we were already quite familiar with the area. However, Sean really took as off the beaten track and gave us experiences that we would not have been able to find on our own. There were so many highlights that I don't know where to start - canoeing the Margaret River (really easy and you don't get wet) and seeing the endless large schools of fish was magical, going to his local coffeeshop, meeting the charming French waiter and the yummy coffee and chocolate croissants was a simple if pleasant surprise (for Sean too!); having lunch under the Peppermint tree at Fraser Gallop estate made me feel like aristocracy in a French chateau setting, meeting the winemakers, discovering the next big wine, trekking to the waterfall, walking on the cliff, being let into all the little local secrets and background history - all these experiences that would not be accesssible to the average tourist. We did them all in 6 short hours in great luxury and comfort , at a VERY relaxed pace and with no sense of being herded and rushed like sheep from place to place (like other tours). It was school holiday season and the most of the usual tourist attractions were packed, however on most of this tour we hardly saw anyone else at all!
This tour is worth every cent and you can't get a better guide than Sean. Don't hesitate to book the tour if you're going to be in the area.

Sean's tours are very unique and highly memorable. We did the Best of the Best Wine Tour which took us to a special selection of wineries starting at around 10am in the morning - A very nice change from the usual tours which cram a million locations and a million people into the one day (think a long weekend in a busy region, yet you've only got 6 in the tour and the entire day to you).

Sean tailored our itinierary to suit us (with a general outline, of course).
Having done wine tastings in the area leading up to the tour, I was beginning to worry it would be much the same, so it was a pleasant surprise to find this tour was far from that.

The degustation lunch beside maturing barrels was a fantastic touch, not to mention exclusive and educational (though some may find the technical side of wine-making a bit too much for a relaxing weekend away).

Top that up with a good amount of local knowledge, interesting facts on the region, a good sense of humour, an off-road 4WD trek, and the fantastic Cape to Cape finale (which looks just like in the brochure), and you've got a well-earned #1 placing on Trip Advisor's website, and #1 on my personal list as well!

Sean definitely is able to add a special touch to his tours, so if you're in the area, or even in W.A. for that matter, I highly recommend his tours as ours was truly the cherry on top of a fantastic weekend away.

Well done mate!
