Our Guides

We at Out & About believe we offer the Best Winery Tours in the Swan Valley and Perth Hills. Not only because they are great value for money or that we have selected our wineries for their ambience and world class wines or that we have late model deluxe air conditioned coaches but because we can boast we have the Best Guides in the Valley and they are the difference between a run of the mill or an Out & About Wine Tour.

Meet the guides who all bring something different to their tours, but in common are all very professional, knowledgeable, good fun and are committed to making your day or evening the best experience possible.

Not a tour guide but the other half of Out & About. Runs the business side of things though has been known to be allowed to leave the office and join a tour as a host. Mostly she is the cheery voice on the end of the phone and one who deals with the crisis management of the tours. Really though haven’t seen too much of a crisis!

Claude is the founder of Out & About and still running tours 5 days a week. Why? Simply because he is very good at what he does and just loves it! Claude started his life as a tour guide in Europe about 30 years ago (yeah, we know doesn’t look a day over 50!) and has been enjoying it ever since. His enthusiasm and passion for wine, food and people is legendary in the Valley. Claude will amaze you with his ability to remember everyone’s name on the tour by the first winery. Everyone has to have a claim to fame!

Tim joined us in the early days and worked most weekends, but with a full-time job as an Instrument Technician and a social life you’ll find him on our tours about once a month these days. Tim enjoys running the tours because of his love of wine & food and this passion has made him very knowledgeable on everything that is the wine and food!

Tony has been with Out & About Wine Tours the longest of our guides and his knowledge of the Swan Valley region, its wineries and characters leaves you with the sense that you have visited family on your day out with him. If Tony is your driver/guide you are in for a great day!

In a life before the joys of being a tour driver he was a management consultant with Federal and local government. Neil brings to the table (or should we say the bus) a love of music, travel, cars, cooking and wine! Certainly not short of interests to strike a conversation with while on tour.

Barrie brings with him an infectious manner and a bag full of life experience. Relevant experience comes in the form of a chauffeur driver with Astor Limousines for many years and a muso from way back. Might just be lucky enough to get a tune out of him on the way back to the city!

Jenny operates our Wednesday day tours and some weekends where possible and runs the office for us when we are on vacation (sadly not too often), she is a real asset to Out & About.
At her husband’s request please don’t let her sneak in any more purchases of shoes and handbags! With Jenny’s fun personality, absolute love of wine you’ll be in for a wonderful wine experience.

Chris is the newest member of our team she has vast experience in Tourism in Western Australia and we are very lucky that Chris can share some of her time with Out & About Wine Tours very knowledgeable about the Swan Valley Region Chris does enjoy the experience of running tours through the valley and is in no real hurry, you will enjoy your day with her.
