Overview
This tour is ideal for travelers looking for a packed day trip out of Adelaide. Unlike most McLaren Vale wine country excursions, this tour also stops at the towns of Hahndorf, Goolwa, and Victor Harbor. You also have plenty of time to independently explore McLaren Vale’s Main Road. Hotel pickup and drop-off is also included.

Highlights
  • Full day tour of Hahndorf, Goolwa, Victor Harbor, and McLaren Vale from Adelaide
  • Save time by seeing a lot of the McLaren Vale region in one day 
  • Sample local foods and wines in McLaren (own expense)
  • Hassle-free, round-trip hotel transportation from Adelaide
What to Expect
Your tour begins with a pickup from select hotels in Adelaide. Meet your guide, hop aboard your tour vehicle, and set off toward McLaren Vale, traveling through the Adelaide Hills or via the main road. Upon arrival to wine country, visit local wineries chosen by your group and guide. Learn about local wines that make the region famous and have plenty of time for wine tasting (own expense). Afterward, have some free time to visit McLaren Vale’s Main Road. Visit the town’s “Almond Train,” a 1920’s train carriage converted to a regional produce shop. Make your way back to Adelaide, and finish the tour with a drop-off at your original point of departure.

Bums on Seats are a great company to deal with. Prompt replies to all queries and friendly professional service. Unfortunately the tour I was booked on had to be cancelled at the last minute (No fault of Bums on Seats). Paul very kindly came to my accommodation to let me know

Enjoyable tour and Paul was a wealth of knowledge and jokes. Only problem I had was the comfort of the van. Very bumpy and uncomfortable in the back. We arrived at our lunch destination just before 2pm so when we found somewhere we wanted to eat they had finished serving.
