We had a most enjoyable and interesting tour around North Adelaide this morning, focusing on the area encompassing Brougham Place and Stanley Street. Graeme is very knowledgable and clearly does his research.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hours we spent with Graeme walking North Terrace, gaining important insights and understandings on the buildings and characters that have contributed to the development of the city. Graeme was knowledgeable, personable and engaging. These types of tours are particularly important to new visitors to Adelaide however I suspect would benefit locals as well. When we return to Adelaide we intend to undertake further local tours with Graeme.
