About The Guide

A little history…

Hi, my name is Tim and I am almost as “Perth” as it gets. Having been born and raised in this beautiful city, I have spent most of my life living here until I developed the travel bug at the ripe old age of 30 and decided to go backpacking around Europe. Floating in the breeze for a few months, it was during my time visiting France that I was lucky enough to meet my partner Linda, a French native, and decided to make Paris my home away from home. It was during this time that I found my calling as a Tour Guide and would spend the next 5 years conducting tours of Paris to people from all over the world. 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 back in 2015 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 

Moving back to Perth after having living abroad and travelled the world has given me such a new found appreciation of how truly lucky we are to live in such a beautiful city and it is a pleasure to be able to share it with locals as well as people from all over the world. Before starting my own tour company, Best of Perth Tours, I worked in a variety of roles within the Tourism industry here in Perth. I was able to fulfil a life long dream of working alongside animals providing tours at Caversham Wildlife Park. I have proivded historic tours of Perth and Fremantle and with a wine and spirit production I have now started to showcase the Swan Valley, Bickley Valley and Margaret River wione regions. With a love and deep appreciation for the history of Perth, I continue to explore the city to uncover new hidden secrets and interesting tales of today’s modern Perth to share with guests on all 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.

Experienced & accredited

Some tour companies hire bus drivers who don’t have any Tour Guide experience and add little to the tour. To get the most out of your day, know your Tour Guide before choosing your Tour Company.

Tour Guide Experience

Over 10 years experience in the Tourism Industry both locally and internationally entertaining guests from all over the world in a variety of fields including history, Australian animal wildlife, as well as wine appreciation, education and production.

Wine & Spirits Education Trust

With a Level 2 certification from the internationally recognised WSET program you can be assured your Tou Guide is professionally trained and experienced when it comes to wine education.

First Aid Training

Not that we have ever had or expect there to be a problem, but it’s good to know your guide is First Aid trained to ensure every safety safety precaution is taken with relevant training once a year.
