Truly the Best of Perth Tours!! Based on reviews of “best ofPerth. tours”, we realized that Tim is a big part of why this tour is so successful. We were an international group of ten, and Tim showed great enthusiasm and knowledge of the art of wine making and the history of the Swan Valley. He chose 3 small boutique wineries with historical routes in this valley .We had a delicious lunch at a fourth winery and a visit to a chocolate factory. Tim truly deserves a 5 star rating.!!

Outstanding wine tour of Swan Valley with brilliant tour guide Tim All of the reviews for this tour are correct it is a fantastic experience. Tim provides an exceptional level of service and is incredibly friendly and welcoming. We were on a tour of just 10 people which meant that it was very friendly and informative. We visited 4 wineries and the chocolate factory. All of the wineries were exceptional, the first one, Garbin wines, provided a platter of cheese, crackers and grapes to help our palates. We sampled bubbles, rose, white and reds all of which were cracking. We then moved onto Maya Maya were we had another set of tastings and a very good lunch, highly recommended. After lunch Tim took us to an absolutely superb small family winery John Kosovitch which were amazing and personally my favourite of the 4, we bought a couple of bottles here, I should mention that there is no pressure or expectation for you to purchase at any of the wineries we visited. The last winery again was outstanding and very interesting as they had some 30 varieties of grape and produce a very wide range of wines. Finally, we went to the Margaret River chocolate factory which rounded off the day beautifully. We cannot sing Tim’s praises highly enough, if you are a beginner in the world of wines or seasoned wine tour veterans you will not fail to be impressed with his knowledge and choice of wineries. If you do nothing else whilst in Perth treat yourself to this fabulous tour. Paraphrasing Spinal Tap Tim takes the experience to 11. Thanks again Tim for an extra special day.

A Day I'll Remember for A Long Time The whole day was a lovely experience. Being in a small group enabled me to interact with all participants throughout the day and share experiences. Nothing was rushed. We had plenty of opportunity to speak with the wine makers at all venues. Tim was a fantastic guide. He took us to smaller wineries that larger groups can’t get access to. I’m a big fan of the boutique, family-based wineries – you could feel their love and passion for what they do, and they all provided a very personal service. You don’t often get this at the larger, more commercially focussed wineries. I plan to do this tour again next time I’m in Perth.

A fantastic day exploring Swan Valley wineries with Tim We had a fantastic day out with Tim. He was a wealth of information about the surrounding district and the wineries themselves. The wineries chosen were carefully picked for a fabulous boutique experience supporting family run businesses. Lunch was great and it was really nice to be a part of a small group. We absolutely recommend spending a day with Tim.

Learn the history of the Swan Valley, appreciate excellent wines available only at cellar door. Tim provided an excellent tour, greatly appreciated his background info on each of the vineyards and his attention to the needs of each and everyone of us A small tour group is the way to do a Swan Valley tour and the choice of the smaller, family established and run wineries was a definite plus. A great day.

Lovely day tour in a small setting We joined the tour as a family and had the loveliest experience. Tim is a knowledgeable, friendly, and caring guide and took us to four boutique beautiful estates with different settings. The tour was with 7 other people which was just the right size to get to know each other. We were allowed to choose our own lunch and drinks from the menu which was a big plus too. He took care of us as a group before the tour by dropping us a helpful note about pick up time & location, followed by a drive on the van where he talked about the history of the valley, and took us around the whole day. I was originally worried that my 8 yr old daughter would be tired with the tour, as it was more for adults. However Tim helped to engage with her in the van, letting her to join the conversation, and took us to estates where there were playgrounds, pet parrots and kept her entertained for the whole day. When we were back, my daughter told me this was one her best days during our holidays, and we cannot agree more! Thanks for such a memorable experience and would heartily recommend anyone visiting Perth to spend a day joining this tour.
