SquishyDragon September 2021

We had an absolutely amazing day with Gary. He was on time, flexible with our work schedules, informative and welcoming. It was great value for money and perfect for foodies and wine lovers alike. The booking process was easy and he checked in on a regular basis. The stops were well organised and we couldnt eat another bite by the end!

Christine D July 2021

What a fabulous day we had with Garry on a full-day wine and food tasting tour. He personalised the day especially for us, adapted venues and timing to ensure a most pleasant visit to each place so we could make the most of each experience. His knowledge of the local area and small businesses was unsurpassed and we relaxed and just followed his lead, which was awesome. He went out of his way, especially with his introductions and his time to share the beauty of Perth, Fremantle and the surrounding area with us. I highly recommend this small-group tour to anyone who wants to enjoy the expertise of Garry as the owner and tour guide to enjoy the highlights of Perth and Swan Valley. Thanks Garry for such a great day!

Taste buds has been taken over by new owner Gary. Gary managed to fit us in on a Wednesday after all other tours were booked out. It basically ended up being our own private tour! We did a whole tour travelling to Providore wines, Margaret river chocolate, Lavender bistro, Windara honey, Aboriginal art centre, Moorish Nuts, Olive Farm wines and Whistlers chocolates. It was the perfect mix of food and wine. We particularly enjoyed the Windara honey tour as they went through their production of honey and even had a glass hive on the wall where you could watch the bees. At most of the places we got a little tasting platter included. The complimentary shopping bags were a nice touch for all of our purchases. The Kia Carnaval was very comfortable to travel in, with wet wipes, tissues and water. Gary’s car broke down unfortunately so we left an hour late. But Gary got another car and kept us updated. However the tour did move at a nice pace until it was rushed at the end after having arrived an hour late. Having only just bought the company they are still working it all out with timings. Gary as a curtesy for the car breakdown dropped us home to our door in Fremantle instead of Perth CBD. Would still highly recommended!

Sarah_R March 2020

A great tour with an amazing tour guide and a great variety of stops. I would highly recommend this. We did the afternoon tour.

Hayleyvn March 2020

Loris is very friendly and knowledgeable. She oozes passion for food. Great tour, with enough time to enjoy each venue and buy products.

731carolinek January 2020

Loris was a wonderful guide with lots of knowledge and stories to tell about the region. There were plenty of stops along the way including honey, ice cream, bush tucker, cider, nougat, nuts and wine. Fab day.

I’ve done a good and wine trail before with my wife. I’ve now had a couple of kids and the wife was busy, I had a free morning so why not take the kids out to see the Swan Valley? They loved the bus, being up front, tasting honey, ice cream, chocolate and even tried and loved nougat. Yahava was kind enough to make them a mini hot chocolate and they absolutely loved all the juices at Funk Cider/Michael Brothers. In all a great day, I think I bought something from almost every stop including Harris Organic Winery, what a hidden gem - and you got to meet the winemaker! Loris delivers her tours with professionalism, friendliness and aplomb. A great operator and an excellent tour business that is big enough to make it fun without it being too big to make it impersonal. A+ we will be back soon!

K M November 2019

Loris did a great job taking us to lots of interesting and varied venues, more than we were expecting, giving us heaps of info about the Swan Valley and each individual outlet. I love the fact that she keeps groups small as it gives a much better experience and everyone feels included. Loris has many years of experience and is passionate about the Valley and all it has to offer. As a local I learned heaps, and our visitor from the UK really enjoyed her day too.

BellaCaron August 2019

This tour certainly rocked. And tickled our taste buds. The different range of food was good and the quality was exceptional- all good local home made etc. recommended. P.s. I did the tour as a single female and it worked really well for me.

Nigel G May 2019

Enjoyed a super-speedy variety of tastes - from specialty cheeses to fresh-roasted coffee, to honey mead, to local wines, chocolate, and more! All in the Swan Valley, just outside of Perth, Australia. A great afternoon, with our bright and breezy driving hostess giving use all sorts of helpful advice to inform us and guide us along the journey.

Shannon F April 2019

Loris was a great tour guide to show us around a part of our own city that we haven't spent much time in . Great food stops , and value for money , Would highly recommend this to overseas /interstate travelers as well as locals !

martinsmith76 April 2019

We've been on many tours and nothing can compete to taste bud tours. Exceptional service from a truly dedicated guide with outstanding informative knowledge from start to finish. Loris really is the perfect guide and the places you visit are so different from the next. We loved everyone and the discount card for purchasing certainly ensured we left with our own taste of the swan valley. Unbelievable value for money and a special thank you to yahava coffee for allowing us to taste their grand cru from Colombia. Our diets were destroyed by the white chocolate from whistlers and the kiwi cider from funk was the winner. Steve's apple pie ice cream is a must and the indigenous gallery with the most sensational relishes and oils and the chocolate spread OMG! Miss this tour and you will seriously regret it.

Rebecca B April 2019

An absolutely amazing tour of some great places to eat in the Swan Valley. Had such a great time and Loris is a fantastic tour guide!

MichaelF6719 April 2019

Very knowledgeable and excellent overall host (Loris). Accommodating to families with young children which was fabulous. Bring your credit card and your sweet tooth!

danielp639 March 2019

Loris was a brilliant guide, got to see and try lots of different places in the Swan valley my favourite was coffee tasting at Yahava, would highly recommend to anybody young or old.

Sue S March 2019

My husband and I highly recommend speed grazing with Taste Bud Tours. When it comes to the Swan Valley, Loris Harding is a wealth of information. She's professional, friendly and her love of the area really shines through. She took our small group to a variety of cafes, wineries and businesses where we were able to taste and purchase delicious local produce. Between venues, we were kept entertained by historical facts and interesting stories. We really enjoyed our tour.

arlingtonian99 March 2019

Enjoyed a full afternoon of a variety of tastings. Highly recommended, good value for the dollar. Loris was a terrific guide.

KimVeale3 March 2019

My whole family went on the Good food, Wine and Cider tour and all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Loris is an entertaining, knowledgeable guide and we got to taste handcrafted chocolate, ice cream, nougat, honey, bush tucker condiments, coffee, cider and organic wine! We had 4 children aged between 6 - 12 and they all loved the variety of places we visited.

Eliza B March 2019

This 5 hour tour around the Swan Valley went by in a blur! It was over before I realised. Even though I have lived in Perth for over ten years, I never really visited the Swan Valley before and this tour showed me the best coffee, chocolate, scones, wine, food, honey and cider places. I really liked that there was so much variety in the places that we visited, but at the same time they were all local businesses. Speed grazing is an appropriate term to describe the fast pace with which we went from place to place. That said in some of the places we stayed a bit longer for a snack or dinner. I cannot speak highly enough of Loris who is wonderful at her job. She is professional but very welcoming and friendly, and she created a cheerful vibe for the small group that we were. Oh and the other awesome thing about this tour is you get a rewards card for lots of different businesses! I hope to do this tour again!

KarrinaM1 March 2019

We had a fabulous day on the Speed Grazing tour with Loris. She was very informative about the attractions of the Swan Valley. She was also very friendly and within minutes has remembered everyone's name on the tour. We left the city on time, the bus was also very comfortable. The tour was well organised and each venue was ready for our arrival with a treat or two in hand. We visited some places we most likely wouldn't have tried, with a few we are likely to return to independently. If you want a food/wine tour of the Swan Valley, I cant recommend Tastebud Tours highly enough. We had a fantastic day and will be looking to do one of the morning food tours in the future as well.

Robyn H March 2019

Great venues, small intimate group, fantastic host Loris, we had a great day and would highly recommend this tour.

galah74 February 2019

Thoroughly recommend this speed grazing tour. A perfect blend of great tastings, combined with a knowledgeable tour guide, and a great dollop of fun. Difficult to choose a favourite tasting venue, from the 10 we visited, but the Twin Hills winery was a particular favourite.

Khatrr December 2018

Loris is a stone cold fox! She has the knowledge and know-how to guide you through the highlights of the swan valley region with charm and grace. Not a moment wasted with the speed grazing! Definitely would recommend to anyone if they are looking to spend an afternoon appreciating the area through food, history and good company.

garyyahavasv December 2018

Loris is an amazing tour guide, and her tour includes very interesting tidbits about the history of Perth and the Swan Valley. She knows the people of the Swan Valley very well, and has put together a unique tour of interesting people and the businesses they run. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is looking to get a different perspective of the beautiful Swan Valley - which has an amazing assortment of businesses just 13km from the Perth CBD.
