Great Introduction to Adelaide
Jan. 2020
This tour was a bonus, buy two full day tours and the Highlights Tour is free. Terry was our driver/guide, very knowledgeable and giving a great overview of Adelaide history, places of interest from major attractions to the very obscure, as we journeyed slowly along the streets with many pauses for photos and stops at St Peter's Cathedral, Montefiore Lookout and Haigh's Visitor Centre. We had great maps from the Adelaide Tourist Centre and our hotel but this tour provided a more tangible overview and sense of direction. It was crammed full of interest, perhaps too much, but certainly allowed us to be more selective in our later sightseeing. Kudos.

Our Adelaide City Highlights tour certainly does give you a good overview of the city, with some information on Adelaide's history. Please feel free to share any photos with us on our Facebook page - we hope to welcome you back again sometime on one of our other wonderful tours. Best regards, The Adelaide Sightseeing Team

Dreadful
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 did the Adelaide City Highlights tour - i think we could have seen nearly as much as getting on and off the free bus that tours around Adelaide - we also did the Popeye boat which we found boring

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.
