The tour was absolutely fantastic, I would highly recommend ordering cheese platter as it went really well with the wine tasting. The bus will take you from the city to mountains with scenic winery then to the beach at Glenelg. We were lucky to see the sun set which was picturesque. The tour is worth every penny.

Myself and two friends booked this tour the morning of over the phone, I was nervous we had missed out with a late booking but there was enough room for us. So glad we did as we had the most spectacular day.

We were picked up seamlessly from the meeting point and met Craig our driver and host. He was full of knowledge and good banter and as we traveled out of the city into the hills he gave us a quick rundown of the history of Adelaide and also pointed out some of his go-to spots along the way. The views were phenomenal.

We arrived at our first winery, Shingleback there we had a delicious cheese platter and got to sample some wines. The tasting was super fun and informative.

Craig took his time to point out some iconic views on the way to our next stop Chapel Hill. Views were great here, the tasting was shorter than the previous winery but equally informative.

En route back to the city we did a coastal drive and stop off at Glenelg, we chose not to stay for the evening and continue back into the city but that definitely would have been a fun option and it was great to have the choice.

We had such a fun day, really got great value for money considering it is a half day tour. Craig was amazing and same with the gentleman who took my booking. Would definitely recommend this tour, in particular if you are short on time like we were !

Had a lovely tour with Craig as our knowledgable guide. Drive was beautiful
to the wineries, driving through beautiful hills, with very interesting commentary.
First winery was in a chapel, and tasted 8 wines. At the second winery had the
option of purchasing a $15 cheese platter, a must, and enough for 2. So nice to
sample the wines with. We ended our tour driving along the beaches to Glenelg
and had option of being driven back to hotel, or staying longer and taking the
free tram back to the city. We did that and walked down to the beach and watched some of the other tour members playing ball. Had drinks at the hotel at the beach,
and watched the lovely sunset. Many restaurants to choose from, and we chose
a tapas one, and had a delicious dinner. Easy to get back on tram. Absolutely lovely tour, highly recommend.

What an awesome day! We were originally supposed to be on the half day tour however given we were the only couple, they upgraded us free of charge to the full day tour (including a lunch). Russell was an excellent host with a wealth of knowledge of Adelaide and the surrounding areas. I would highly recommend this tour if you have the opportunity.

This was the 2nd wine tour of our trip, 3rd overall and best by far. Craig, our driver and guide was totally professional, knowledgeable and thoroughly helpful. It was a pleasure to have him as our guide and the day could not have been better. We went to two wineries, were given many free tastings and had loads of time to enjoy the experience, in addition to taking in some amazing sights of the coastal towns around Adelaide. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he ensured everyone onboard had a great day, which sadly can't be said of another company we went with. Don't be put off with the relatively low price, the quality of service and experience cannot be beaten. Will certainly book again when we next visit Adelaide!

Highly recommend this tour for anyone that wants to see wineries but also beautiful beaches that may be of difficult access if you’re not driving. Craig is very knowledgeable and funny, you’ll have a fun day with him. I enjoyed the tour very much and the selected wineries were lovely. It’s the perfect half day outside of Adelaide 👍🏼

We only had a limited time frame in Adelaide and wanted to get a little taste of the Adelaide wineries. This tour was recommended to me by a friend and was absolutely worth it. Our tour only had the 3 stops but they were all fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. We opted to get off at Glenelg and had dinner at a local restaurant there and then caught an uber back to our accom (only approx $20). Craig our driver was professional, funny and kept us entertained! His recommendation to try the port at Chapel Hill was listened to and I seriously think nearly everyone on our tour bought a bottle - it was amazing! If you only have limited time and want to get a sneak peak of the wineries, then this is the tour to do.

This is by far the best tour that I've experienced in Australia. Seeing that I was traveling solo and that no one else wanted to share a cheese platter with me, Craig the tour guide offered some complementary cheese and bread to me. Craig did go above and beyond my expectations! This is one trip that will never disappoint you.

Thanks to Craig we enjoyed a very pleasant and informative 1/2 day tour Of McLaren Vale on New Year’s eve. Great to be in the company of someone who is customer focused, knowledgeable and obviously enjoys his job. Very generous tasting at Chapel Hill and good cheese platter at Shingleback winery. Enjoyed the return trip through the suburbs and seeing Glenelg which was preparing for NYE celebrations. Short stress free way to get a snapshot of this wine area.

Booked this trip through the visitors centre in Adelaide. JR, our guide, was a local lad who had fantastic knowledge of the area in which he grew up but also about the process of making wine. He was also very entertaining with his stories. We stopped at Chapel Hill which is in a beautiful setting, tasting eight wines and finishing with a Tawny Port! Then called at a chocolate shop and opted for the cafe and a cup of tea before going to the Shingleback Cellar which was really lovely. It is an independent wine making business that has won loads of award. We had eight wines to taste and they were all fabulous. Bought three to take home with us!!!! Finished in Glenelg at a local restaurant and then Ubered home. What a great day out. Thanks JR.
