Where? When? Who? What?
Sometimes you just need answers!
Got some questions that you are wondering about before booking a tour?
If the answers to your queries are not noted below, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. All our details are available below or on our contacts page!
Who is Margie???
Ok, this may be the MOST frequently question we get asked. Margie is not actually a person, it is short for Margaret River!
Can I join a tour as an individual or couple or do we have to book as a group?
You can certainly join a tour as a single, couple or group. Majority of Full Day Tours that run are made up of smaller groups and hop on board as strangers then finish the day as friends! If you have a larger group you also have the option of hiring a whole bus to yourselves. Check out our Private Charter page for more info.
Where can I get picked up and dropped off?
Margies Big Day Out Tours offers pickup and drop off to your accommodation inclusive of the tour price – within our pickup radius.
We generally pickup from Yallingup, Dunsborough, Busselton CBD down through to Margaret River. At times pickups from places such as Bunker Bay, Karridale, Augusta, Bunbury and Port Geographe may be applicable but this is dependent on the day. In addition to the price of the tour, pic-up/drop-off fees may apply.
Can I drink on the bus?
No. Due to strict liquor licensing laws along with Public Liability issues, we restrict any persons from consuming alcohol on any of our tour buses. Heavy fines apply for any persons caught doing so.
Is there a set itinerary or can we chose venues?
Our itinerary is usually based on pick ups on the day. We always visit the same lunch venue – Bootleg Brewery, however additional wineries and breweries we visit are not set in stone. We are more than happy to try to accommodate any requests you have, but we do focus on keeping travel time on the bus to a minimum!
What do we have for lunch?
Our delicious gourmet lunch is prepared and served at the amazing Bootleg Brewery. Lunch consists of delicous “brewers platters” which are generally shared between 2. They are full of local produce including dips, chutney, relish, smoked and cured meats, cheese, salad, olives, crackers and bread (check out the photos attached)
Lunch is a highlight for all on the tour. In addition to this you also receive a beer & cider tasting inclusive of the price!
Please advise our office of any dietary requirements prior to the tour.
Are there any additional costs involved?
Included in the price of your tour is pickup and drop off to your accommodation, tastings at 3 wineries, tastings at the cheese and chocolate companies plus your lunch which is prepared and served at the Bootleg Brewery. The final brewery stop purchases are not inclusive of the price, however all the breweries we visit generally offer discounts on any beers you may purchase.

Great day out even if it rained a little. The stops were planned well and everyone had a great time! Would do another tour with these guys again!Alysha
What a great day out! Not only did we get an education on wine but it was an excellent way to see more of the area. Lots of fun was had by everyone on the tour, it is always fun to meet new people especially over a couple of drinks. Also Richard our tour guide & owner, along with his wife Jaime, made the tour very enjoyable!Bec
Staff very friendly, good way to see the Margaret river region! Very entertaining day with a nice lunch, well worth the money!Rachel
