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!

We took this trip twice with 2 different guides and they were amazingly friendly knowledgeable, welcoming and respectful of the land. It's a must have trip not just for the caves, but for the experience all of the staff provided, from the entrance to the cave :)

Sean's tour is a must in Margaret River. A Unique tour with attention to detail and insider knowledge to the best locations the region can offer. The food and wine was amazing and the activities flowed seamlessly. You simply must do it!

Great access to the cave although a lot of steps down to the bottom and then back up to the top. Just takes a bit of time to pace yourself and it is well worth it.

We had a fabulous day helped in no uncertain terms by our driver/guide Gavin, he was so knowledgeable,friendly and professional he made our day all the better.
