Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our tour of the Adelaide Hills was one I'd recommend to anyone travelling to Adelaide. Our guide, Rudi, provided a wealth of knowledge on the history of Adelaide and the Hills, through to the current day. Despite not being blessed with fine weather, we rode in comfort in Rudi's immaculate new LandCruiser, with doors opened for us at every stop. We got to experience tastings at three great wineries along with an authentic German lunch in Hahndorf. I should also mention an alternate winery had initially been booked, but once Rudi found that we had hoped to visit a different one, he went out of his way to cancel the first booking and get us booked straight into our preferred option. This is the kind of service that takes a tour to the next level. Thanks for everything Rudi, we really appreciated your hospitality on the day, and we'd love to come back one day in the future!

What a wonderful way to see Adelaide Hills and experience some the of the wineries South Australia has to offer. Our host Rudi was knowledgeable about the region and it was a great way to spend a day in Adelaide.

A comfortable ride with Rudi who shared his knowledge of Adelaide whilst taking us through the beautiful Adelaide Hills. Rudi took us to 4 excellent wineries which we would never have found ourselves, and to Hahndorf for a German experience lunch. A fantastic day with excellent wine, sights and interesting company. We will do another tour with Hills Luxury Day Tours when next in Adelaide, and tell our friends, Ian & Claire

We had a fabulous, relaxing day in the Adelaide Hills with Rudi as our guide and local expert on the people and places of Adelaide and the hills area. Gayle & Rudi helped us plan a day that worked for us and then delivered a lovely experience that we have enjoyed telling all our friends about!

From the initial enquiry through to the end of the tour, Gayle and Rudi were so helpful and professional, Gayle with the paper work and Rudi as the tour guide. This ensured all we had to do was to enjoy the day! The tour hit the mark in terms of a combination of winery visits (I would recommend and revisit Artwine for the experience) and sightseering including the iconic Hahndorf. It was a lovely well paced day.

From the time of booking with Gayle ensuring we were all ready to go, there was a sense of anticipation of a great day with an amazing itinerary. Rudi, such a gentleman, always opening our doors and having such a vast knowledge of Adelaide and the surrounding areas improved the trip from being a good day to being a great one.
Never too early for chocolate, Haighs was our first stop with a tour of their factory with essential samples. After a half hour detailed run through production and showcasing the chocolatiers with their craft, we went to town purchasing some fine chocolate including factory seconds that are only available here.
This was followed by two carefully selected wineries for tastings. We were impressed and ordered several bottles! Hahndorf was a delight and we found a restaurant for a traditional German lunch. If the tour was longer we would have loved to explore the town more. Berenberg strawberry farm and a gin distillery finished off a perfect day.
Thanks, Rudi. We really appreciated your friendly and helpful demeanour and wealth of local knowledge!!

Rudy was an excellent guide. He was patient and very considerate. We loved all our wineries. He also took us to the beach at the end at my friend's request, which was very kind.

Our experience provided by team "Gayle and Rudi" was excellent value. Rudi's local knowledge provided a great overview of the area and its surrounds. He was very friendly and professional.
Our breaks were not rushed which allowed us to taste the local produce in a relaxed environment.
Highly recommended to include in your visits to South Australia
