Sean is an excellent guide. He shared with us generously about the local culture and his knowledge in wine. The canoeing was exceptionally easy and peaceful. We enjoyed the beauty of Margaret river without even getting wet! The winery experience was great too with great pairing cheese n food prepared by Sean to go with the various wine. Sean gave us such a wonderful experience that I now see Margaret river in a different light although it wasn’t our first trip there. I highly recommend this tour for those who want a great day at Margaret river.

This was, by far, one of the most enjoyable days that a tour can offer. A relaxed way to see the scenery around Margaret River and gaining knowledge through local, Sean, our tour guide. Canoes were completely safe and relaxing, the wine tasting and lunch was really enjoyable, the 4wd was safe which reached into the best scenery over the cliffs. Overall what a wonderful day and would definitely recommend to anyone going to Margaret River to give a rich experience to their life.

This tour was way more than advertised, the little details and guide knowledge really made this the best experience! Sean was friendly and accommodating, his obvious passion for the tour made it even more enjoyable! HIGHLY recommend and highlight of our Margaret River experience!
