      Big tour group but interesting day
      Not the tour I chose but that was cancelled at short notice so I had no choice. The group was much bigger than I would have liked. We had a friendly and informative tour at Jacob’s Creek which was rushed at the end as we had a schedule to meet. Then lunch at Lamberts - I was expecting a small winery but they obviously focus on lunches for tour parties- I think they provided a cooked two course meal for 80+ people. The red wines were nice. Then the jam shop at Beerenberg before an hour at Hahndorf. I had a wander and for me the hour was long enough.

      A well organised day, Dave was a great driver/guide interested in people. The Cube experience was mind blowing -indescribable. A very enjoyable day. Would recommend!

      Little time for decent cost.
      First time to Adelaide and thought I’d go see the Adelaide Hills and Hahndorf so this seemed the perfect choice. Bus was prompt and driver very knowledgeable. Afternoon tea was included in price. Left Adelaide at 1pm. 20 minutes at Mt Lofty 20 minutes at Beerenberg factory (Jams/preserves) Arrived at Hahndorf about 2:30 and proceeded to the Afternoon tea. After waiting an hour for a cup of tea and a piece of strudel, I was left with 1/2 hour to explore the town before having to return to bus by 4:10pm. Back in Adelaide by 4:40pm. No faults with driver but $95 for what was effectively less than 1.5 hour tour.

      Great value!
      A wonderful way to experience the Barossa without the hassle of driving. A good choice of wineries, morning tea & a delicious lunch included. Our friendly tour guide made the day very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this tour for anybody wanting to experience the Barossa. Excellent value for money!

      Two tours in one
      This tour is two tours in one. In the morning we were given a good overview of central Adelaide. This included a visit to the National Wine Museum and St. Peter's Cathedral. After lunch, we visited the market, the tour took us to Hahndorf. On the way we visited Mount Lofty summit and Beerenberg farm. In Hahndorf we had plenty of time to look around and partake in the beer tasting. Our guide/driver Peter was very welcoming and knowledgeable

      Best way see Adelaide and the countryside.
      If you only have 24 hours or 5 days in this city this is the trip for you. Get a great taste of the city, beautiful northern suburbs, botanical gardens, stunning churches, lush mountains and Hahndorf. Taste great wines and beer without needing to go to 10 wineries. Bus driver Peter gave excellent comentary from his extensive knowledge while driving so smoothly and safely in the modern coach. A phonecall was all that was needed to organise a hotel pickup.

      Highly recommend a 7 night cruise on the Murray Princess discovering this amazing river while being spoilt with great food and s
      Can highly recommend this trip on the mighty Murray River. I thought I'd be bored, but not at all. Great on shore excursions learning about the history of the river and paddle steamers. Staff were amazing, nothing was a problem. Food was fantastic, buffet brekkies, 2 course lunches or ploughman's lunch, 3 course dinners. Alcohol at very reasonable prices with happy hour daily 20% off 5-6pm, wine/beer specials every lunch time with 20% off. Cabins a bit small but you don't spend much time in them. Great hot water showers. And of course, the spectacular scenery as you cruise along this enormous river.

      A peaceful Aussie experience
      A lovely day out. Very peaceful. Trip down the Murray on a paddle steamer was really good, Shame it couldn't be just a bit longer. Food on the boat was 1st class. Super tasty. After the cruise we got free time in the town of Mannum but it was probably too long, very quiet town with not alpt to see (museum closed due to flooding earlier this year) On the way back we stopped at Melbas chocolate factory and there was a cheese place next door but it was closing. Our driver, Michael, was fantastic. We felt very safe, and he was full of local information. I would highly recommend this day trip.

      Good introduction to Adelaide and Hahndorf
      This tour is actually two half day tours combined with about an hour's break for lunch. In the morning, we visited the sights of Adelaide, including stops at the National Wine Centre, St. Peter's Cathedral, and Light's Vision. In the afternoon, we went to the Mt. Lofty summit and then spent a few hours in Hahndorf. Tea and apfel strudel or beer tasting at the Hahndorf Inn was included. That was delicious. We could wander along the streets of Hahndorf and soak in the German atmosphere. I would recommend this tour to those who are either visiting for the first time or need a refresher of the main sights.

      Great experience. Would be nice to stop at a couple of the small towns on the way to Hahndorf. Also would be good to have a little more time so not rushing at Hahndorf.

      Disappointing tour experience
      We wished we had hired a car and driven ourselves. We were astonished and dismayed that the tour guide/driver made no acknowledgement of the first nation people at any time during the tour. To listen to the commentary, the " history " of Adelaide started with the arrival of European and English explorers. Be aware also that you do not need to be on time for your tour as they ask, they will keep those passengers who arrive on time ( like us ), waiting for more than 15 minutes.

    Absolutely boring! Waste of money. Really good I guess if you’re looking for a history lesson way too much information given to actually retain as I’m a tourist and not local. Church was cool, botanical gardens are free do them on your own time! Waste of whatever I paid $68 I think could of rented a car for that! City of churches so check them out around every corner. Tour guide was neither friendly nor informative got a bit animated when he had to talk about the city.

    We took the tour during our recent visit and it was very good. People who miss this miss out a lot on the highlights that would be passed up without someone pointing them out. The price was inexpensive and I would highly recommend this.

    It was about the worst tour I have ever been on, 1 hour of tour, 1 stop for a photo shoot and the rest was made up of, returning the bus as ours was not working. Then did the same tour again (passing the same church 4 times) then did drop offs.
