Brilliant day!

If u want a party tour this isn't for you. If you want to taste (quite a lot) of quality wine with excellent descriptions, knowledge and hear stories about the producers then choose this tour. Tim had great relations with all the vintners, even running the tasting in one place. Food was excellent. Our small group was 4 people so the stops were personalised. Brilliant day out and one of the best tastings we've done. Thank you Tim.

Hi Diane thanks so much for coming on the tour and for taking the time to leave such terrific feedback about the tour! It was great to have guests visiting Perth all the way from the Isle of Man and it was such a pleasure to get to know you both throughout the day! I really appreciate how you have described the tour and it certainly does appeal more to guests who are looking for a more intimate, personable experience sampling wine a quality venues that have been hand selected to provide the best tasting experiences the Swan Valley region has to offer. As we guarantee small groups with a maximum of just 10 guests (with 4 guests total on your tour) we able to have really personalised experiences at each Cellar Door. I am glad to hear you enjoyed the gourmet experiences as well as tour is certainly every bit as much about great culinary experiences as it is about the wines tasting experiences. I know you were only in Perth for a few days so I hope the tour was just one of the many highlights you had in our beautiful city before continuing on with the rest of your holidays. Thank you so much once again for coming on the tour it was a pleasure to have your company and wishing you both safe travels for the rest of your journey and all the very best in the future!

Where do we start: we booked this trip the previous evening. Met with Tim (the owner) that morning picked up in his people carrier van which was nice & clean. We were offered free water as we entered the van & throughout the trip - a nice touch we thought. We had 4 couples (8 people) in our group which was just enough again this we found to be more personal and allowed the group to talk to each other & to have more wine!!. Tim brought us to 4 winery's & one chocolate factory. We have to say we were surprised at a lot of this from this tour against others like, Tim being extremely informative about the areas, winery's, the wine & seemed very friendly when chatting or speaking to the owners/wine markers.. We loved the idea that TIM done the presentation in most of the winery's & chocolate factory.. we found this a great way of asking him questions as we knew him rather than the person from the winery... There were so many plus points for us throughout the trip but the 1st visit to Olive winery were we met Deb who was lovely & very informative Tim along with Deb done the presentation around 2 tables were Cheese boards were set up ... Deb introduced us to "Frank The Tank" this was a beast were it held around 24 wines out of there 40+ as we say in Northern Ireland "Craic was mighty" meaning we had a blast... We want onto lunch, were we were given a selection menu of food we can have as part of the tour.... Along with vine or soft drink... We went to two other winery's were we were given samples of there wines & met the people that make it... We ended our tour at the chocolate factory were we tasted some of there chocolate's... As this place was massive and had a large shop I think it would of been a good idea to have money off coupon here?. Or seen behind the scenes tour?. But either way we had a great time here... We headed back into the Perth again (30min) away. Would we book again with Tim - definitely!. Tim makes the tour special... Good luck for the future Tim.

Hi Craig thanks so much for you amazing review! I really appreciate how much time you have spent letting other people know about your experience and truly glad you enjoyed the tour so much. I am really happy to hear how much you enjoyed the small tour experience and as the only tour company in Perth to guarantee small groups with a maximum of 10 guests per tour (8 people total on your tour) we are able to deliver a much more personable experience through the interaction with your Tour Guide as well as the staff at each of venues we visit throughout the day. We pride ourselves on ensuring that everyone is looked after at all times and each guest receives the attention they deserve (as there is nothing worse than feeling like just another number in the crowd). As a small tour company we are also very fortunate to have access to the most respected, award winning boutique wineries in the Swan Valley that the big tour companies can't access so we can truly provide guests with the best wine tasting experiences with a diverse range of wines that are sure to cater to every palate. We certainly have some great relationships with the wineries we work with and it is honestly a privilege to be able to share what these amazing wine producers have to offer. I am glad there were so many positives for you on the tour and it was a real pleasure to have your company and I always enjoy the company of our guests from Ireland (you are always up for a good "Craic"!). Thanks so much for coming on the tour once again and I hope you continue to have many more great experiences whilst you are travelling around Australia. Wishing you safe travels for rest of your holiday and all the very best in the future!

Wonderful trip to Swan Valley wineries

, Dec 2019
My husband and I had a wonderful tour to Swan Valley and several wineries, led by Tim Stone. It was a nice small tour – exactly what we wanted – and we were able to visit more boutique wineries and avoid the crowds from the bigger tours. At the wineries, we had informative and enjoyable tastings. We stopped at one winery for lunch (set menu with several selections) that started with a tasting, which then allowed us to select one of the wines for our glass at lunch. Pick up and return at our hotel in the CBD of Perth went smoothly. Tim is an excellent tour guide with vast knowledge of the Swan Valley as well as the wineries we visited. I would highly recommend this day tour.

Hi Lynne thanks you so much for the wonderful feedback I am glad you enjoyed the tour so much and it was an absolute pleasure to have you both on the tour! I am glad to read that you enjoyed the small tour group experience so much which certainly allows us to have a much more informative and intimate experience at each of the wineries we visit and you don't end up feeling like just another number in the crowd. As a small tour company we are also able to access the most respected boutique wineries in the region that the bigger tour companies can't access which gives us the opportunity to sample a diverse range of premium wines in a much more private setting away from the large tour crowds. The gourmet experiences on this tour are equally as important as the wines we sample and it was great to hear you enjoyed the choice of main course lunch options we provide which is always a highlight for guests and another point of difference compared to other tour companies who provide shared platters for their guests. We also get the opportunity to sample a range of the Estate's wines at our lunch venue with guests able choose which glass of wine they would like to pair with their lunch selection so you truly have the best dining experience possible. I am so glad this trip was a great experience for you and that you discovered so many wines that you loved that you were able to take home to enjoy when the occasions calls for it. Thanks so much once again for coming on the tour and being such great company it was absolutely lovely to meet you both and I certainly wish you all the very best in the future!

Hi Bronwyn thanks so much for organising the Christmas party for you and your team it was an absolute pleasure to meet you all and I had such a great time being a part of your end of year celebrations! I am so glad to hear everyone had such a great day and I got the chance to help you discover some of the "hidden secrets" the Swan Valley has to offer. We are certainly lucky to have such an amazing wine region so close to our city here in Perth and it is always a pleasure to help locals discover their own backyard, getting away from the big crowds and mass production wineries to visit some of the best boutique wineries (and winemakers) the region has to offer. I was glad I was able to help you find some new favourite wineries you will now be able to visit again in the future and you had lots of great wine (and chocolate) to take home from the tour. Thanks very much once again for a great day Bronwyn it was a pleasure to meet you all and I wish you and the Mavin team all the very best for the year ahead :)

There was malfunction with Viator, and it booked me for a trip that wasn’t available... Tim called us immediately (at 10:00pm) and offered to take us on a more expensive trip instead, no extra charge. Wasn’t his fault, yet he took the hit and resolved the issue! Thank you, Tim! The trip itself was amazing and I’m thankful to have been on this Best of Perth Tour. He really thought this out and all the stops gave us enough time to explore, purchase souvenirs, etc, but not so long that we felt that we were wasting time. Having the smaller van instead of the megabus completely changed the vibe of the day. I believe you’ll enjoy yourself and hit all the best spots of Perth if you choose this tour. Totally recommend!

Hi Rebecca thanks so much for the review and your kind words I was really glad we were able to work around the issue and that I got the opportunity to take you on tour of Perth! It is wonderful to read that you enjoyed the overall itinerary and pace of the your and the tour was certainly designed to visit as many of the highlights of Perth in one day without ever feeling like you are rushing from venue to venue and I am glad to hear we achieved that. As we also guarantee small group with a maximum of 10 guests per tour we also have a much more personable experience and definitely does change the "vibe" of the tour as you have mentioned so guests have a much more interactive experience with the Tour Guide and don't just fell like another number in the crowd. Thanks so much for the recommendation and letting others know about your experience Rebecca I am so glad you enjoyed the day and hope you continue to have many more great experiences on the rest of your travels around Australia! Have a great time and wishing you both all the very best in the future!

I have been on many wine tours and this one is the best by a mile! What a great experience, truly a VIP tour. From the first minute we met Tim he made us feel very welcome. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and wines and being a small group experience made a huge difference, no rushed timetable a relaxed and truly special experience. I’m spoiled now and this VIP tour cannot be beaten!

Thank you so much for the review Kim I am incredibly flattered by your kind words and the fact you have taken the time to leave such a wonderful review! I am truly glad you felt every bit the "VIP" on this tour and by keeping the groups small with a maximum of just 10 guests per tour we really do receive a much more personal, intimate and engaging experience at each of the venues we visit. For me personally the small group size also ensures that I am to spend time with every single person on the tour to ensure they are getting the most out of the day and having the best experience possible. As you mentioned we also don't run the tour to a strict timeline at each venue as I am a firm believer that wine tasting (and indeed the gourmet experiences on the tour for that matter) can't be fully appreciated if you feel like we are being rushed from venue to venue. I certainly hope you are able to discover other tours in your travels to different wine regions that meet and exceed your expectations but I am most certainly glad to have read that this tour to the Swan Valley was such a memorable experience for you. Thanks so much once again Kim I am delighted to receive such great feedback and I wish you all the very best with your future travels!

Tim was exceptional. With international wine and tour guide experience, backed by a brilliant local knowledge, a strong relationship with the winery staff and a genuine love of wine, Tim offers the perfect tour.

Wow thank you so much for the wonderful feedback! It was such a pleasure to have met you both whilst visiting from California and I am so glad to hear you enjoyed this tour so much! We are certainly very fortunate to have such an amazing wine region here in Perth less than 30 minutes travel from the city centre which certainly makes for a perfect day trip (without having to do too much travelling) and it truly is a pleasure to be able to share these amazing wineries with visitors to our city. As a small tour company we do have the opportunity to visit the most respect boutique wineries of the region (that the big tour companies can't access) and by keeping our groups small with a maximum of 10 guests we are also able to have a much more personable experience at each of the venues we visit on the tour. The winemakers at these venues carry on family traditions that have now been passed down to the 3rd & 4th generations within their family and have exceptional skill and knowledge on the region spanning almost 100 years. They create outstanding premium wines in very small quantities and it is a privilege to be able to share these wineries with my guests. I am so glad you had such a wonderful day and thank you so much once again for coming on the tour. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here in our beautiful city and wishing you all the very best in the future!
