    One of the best tours I have been on

    Loris was informative and genuine. My friends and I had a great time experiencing the local food and sights.

    Hi Liza. Thank you so much for your very positive review of your Speed Grazing experience. I'm always thrilled to know my guests have enjoyed a great time. Looking forward to you and your friends returning for an afternoon tour next time. Cheers Loris

    Awesome morning of munching

    Fantastic morning on the tour yesterday. Loris the owner was full of local knowledge and passion for the Swan Valley. She didn't rush us, so we took an extra hour to get around all the stops. Most of the stops were for sweet treats. Would consider doing the afternoon tour too if I had a bit more time in Perth!

    Thanks Hanna for your insightful review. You're correct in your observation .... the morning tour is regarded as the sweeter option of the two tours on offer. The afternoon tour includes savoury treats like cheeses, olives etc. Next time you're in Perth please join me again. In the meantime safe travels and thank you for making my Speed Grazing Food Wine & Cider morning tour such fun. Cheers

    Foodies Delight

    We had a fabulous morning. Our guide Loris was knowledgeable, accommodating and the little touches she adds to the day made it even more special. We had such a variety of tastings at exceptional venues. The hosts at all the tasting venues were welcoming and passionate about their enterprise. Loved the Aboriginal gallery Maalinup & the Funk cider stop. Although it’s speed tasting - we did not need lunch afterwards - we simply couldn’t fit in any more on our tastebuds!!
