A little history…
Born and raised in Perth, it wasn’t until moving to Paris at the ripe old age of 30 that I began to immerse myself in history, culture and the appreciation of a good wine. Calling the ‘City of Love’ home for 5 years, it was during that time I was lucky enough to meet my partner Linda, explore Europe and find my calling as a Tour Guide. I have loved the journey and have met some of the most amazing people from all over the world on my tours. After getting that ‘there is no place like home’ feeling my partner and I packed up our lives to return to my home town of Perth and I now feel incredibly fortunate to wake up every day to be able to showcase the very best that my city has to offer.
A variety of experience
Having provided historical tours of the famous monuments and museums of Paris for 5 years I returned home to Perth and have continued to work exclusively within the Tourism Industry. I have worked in a variety of roles providing historic tours of Perth, Fremantle and the Swan Valley which has given me an in depth knowledge of the history of Perth. I was able to fulfil a life long dream of working alongside animals providing tours and presenting shows at Caversham Wildlife Park (which you can also visit on our Very Best of Perth Tour). With an accredition in wine and spirit production (see our VIP Swan Valley Wine Tour) as well as a passion for the history of the beautiful modern day city that is today’s Perth, I continue to explore the city to uncover those hidden secrets and interesting tales to share with guests on my tours.
Quality, not quantity
In my experience over more than 10 years as a Tour Guide in Perth as well as internationally, in addition to having experienced a number of tours whilst travelling as a tourist, I know first-hand that the best experiences come in small group settings. Your time on holidays is precious and there is nothing worse than feeling like just another number in the crowd in a large group and feeling like your day has been wasted having a poor quality experience. That is why with Best of Perth Tours we guarantee there will never be more than a maximum of 10 people per tour to ensure you have a personal and memorable tour and your day will be something to remember for all the right reasons.
