What a wonderful tour Hank made for us. Hank has a tremendous knowledge of the area and special spots in particular. We have seen to many things to name them individually but I love his ability to spot the wildlife and tell us lots about the flora; even in winter in Margaret River. Thanks to Hank we have a new definition of ” a crowded beach” !
A tour not to be missed and tailor made according to your wishes.A must do!
We did the “Snap Shots” tour with Hank, I was recommended this tour by another highly regarded tour operator in Margaret River. Straight away I thought that was a good sign to be held in such high regard by one of your competitors. From the moment Hank picked us up from our accomodation we were impressed with Hank’s professionalism and passion. It was easy to recognise this is a man with a life time of knowledge of the Margaret River area having grown up there. Hank tailored the tour to us, having asked our interests and building a profile on my wife and I he hit the mark consistently all day long. Hank took us to the most stunning places, and also had plenty of surprise landscapes many tour guides would not understand or have the knowledge of. Hank took us to a delightful venue for lunch, which was high end and certainly far beyond your average tour standard lunch. This was not only the best tour I have done in my life, but it was one of the most wonderful days of our life. To top it off, Hank is a stunning photographer and sent us all of the photos he took on the day and even some from his own private collection, which I might add are far beyond “Snap Shots”
I cannot recommend this tour highly enough, simply a must do in Margaret River.A Stunning tour and a day I will never ever forget
A superb and truly memorable 2 days with Hank. The best guide for a bespoke tour of the Margaret River region and beyond! If Hank doesn’t know it, it’s not worth knowing! We went cape to cape and our tour included lighthouses, beaches, picturesque walks, caves, wineries and delicious food! Hank was so great he left us wanting more! Thanks Hank, see you again one day!There’s no better guide for the Margaret River region
We would like to thank Hank very much for this very personalised, engaging and eye-opening experience (We had the full day tour). I dont think we will get the chance to discover all these awesome places even if we get our own rental car. He grew up in Margaret River, so he is truly proud of his hometown and know what are the places to bring us to where only locals would know. We can feel his passion and love for his hometown which makes this whole tour enjoyable. He is also very well-liked by the people there. There are perks just because Hank brought us along! Unlike other tour guides, he does not just leave us alone for us to explore. He always stay by our side, adding on his own experience, educating us with his own knowledge. No doubt, we learn alot from him and we want to thank him for that!
Will recommend Hank if you want a unique tour to truly enjoy Margaret River!Love this personalised experience!
Hank listens to what you want to do and can alter the itinerary during the day – without complaint – to suit your changing demands in the light of experience and the weather.
The main advantages of this tour, which rely on lifetime of local knowledge are its variety and the ability to visit places others do not go – or at least not at the same time.
The tour visits, beaches, views and scenery, giving ample opportunity to walk to the best and most interesting locations, art galleries, wineries – all this varied region has to offer. But Hank is also interested and flowers, birds and photography so you get a wealth of information and advice all given in a quiet and patient manner. He had recorded bird calls to encourage the rarer birds and produced an enticing set of photographs to encourage a further visit when the orchids are in flower. His choice of wineries responds to your specific tastes and the lunch locations were nicely chosen. If this is not enough he is interested in fishing and surfing so even with a diverse group something could be provided for everybody. All at a reasonable cost.
Great day spent with Hank! We are a family of 5 with kids ranging from 11 to 14. We started the day with a pencil-sketched plan, and that quickly evolved each hour. Hank was incredibly open to doing different activities and we ended our day over-the-top satisfied with his ability to change based on our preferences. Examples – we changed lunch plans from a winery to a local restaurant in Augusta serving the freshest fish (kids definitely preferred this!). He was able to take us to where we touched the Indian Ocean, and an hour later, touched the Southern Ocean. We shopped for wood tables based on his personal knowledge of the owners and craftsman. And we let him know before the trip that our kids loved to fish, so at 5:00 when the wineries closed, he took us to a remote location where the boys both caught a large salmon! All of this was done because Hank was flexible with us, and made sure that he did what we wanted vs sticking to an itinerary that would not have been successful. I would highly recommend Hank for any type of customized itinerary you are looking to do in the Margaret River area!Excellent, and flexible, day in Margaret River
We had the most perfect day! Hank has such a wealth of knowledge on the local area that he was able to show us the best spots! The scenery was breathtaking, were lucky enough the see whales and nesting sea eagles. An absolutely delicious lunch was included. Highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the southwest, Hank was able to customise the tour to our family’s needs and this worked out to give us a camera full of photos!Wonderful way to see the best of Margaret River region
