About Barossa Daimler Tours
From the moment you see your beautiful, gleaming, black Daimler arrive to collect you, you just know this day is going to be special. Have a brief chat with your guide, John Baldwin, about the wines you love, the wineries you have to see, where you have already been, and then leave it to this passionate local to personally tailor your tour just for you. These rare 1962 Daimlers can seat up to 8 persons when required, but it is really special to be the only two in the vast back seat of these historic vehicles (used in royal tours of the sixties). Premium wine tastings, sumptuous restaurant lunches with wine, afternoon tea at Maggie Beers Farm Shop are all included, plus free collection and return to your Barossa accommodation. John seems to know everyone, and he loves to share his local knowledge and close friendships which he has formed with the winemakers, with all who tour with him. You can visit the large iconic wineries such as Penfolds,Jacobs Creek and Seppeltsfield or be introduced to the smaller boutique wines at Torbreck, Rockford, Charles Melton and Charles Cimicky, to name a few. A Barossa tour begins at 10am and finishes at 5pm. Adelaide pickups are available (at extra cost) and begin at 9am and finish at 5.30pm. A modern 7 seat Mercedes is also available for tours to the Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley and McLaren Vale and is used for the Adelaide accommodation or Airport pickups.

John & Libby are amazing hosts, guides, and Barossa Ambassadors! My husband and I enjoyed our first tour with John in December 2009. After spending 8 glorious days exploring the Barossa the tour was our last day - and what a day it was! Truly the highlight of our trip. I have sometimes wondered if my idyllic memories of our day with John in 2009 had been inflated over the years... they have not. I have spoken so passionately about our tour with John that when two girlfriends and I decided to spend a week in the Barossa, both friends asked to share in a tour. John and Libby continue to provide a day that will be cherished for a lifetime. The stories, the history, the wines, and the wine lessons combined with a dreamy Queenly vehicle, decadent lunch, and afternoon tea.... combined to make a day that I will be adding to my first remarkable Daimler Barossa tour till my next visit; and now my friends continue to expand the tales of a magical day well spent. Thank you John & Libby for continuing to help make cherished memories, and for taking special care of us during the early Coronavirus days.

From booking the tour through Libby, the ride up to the valley where we met John, selection of the wineries and the lunch, everything was seamlessly and flawlessly done. The enthusiasm John shows and his knowledge about the region, winemakers and wineries were second to none, and his ability to impart this in an informative and interesting way was brilliant. We're so glad that we got to spend the day with John and will definitely look him up again if we are lucky enough to be able to return to see some more of this great part of the world... Highly recommended!

What an amazing day! From the initial booking process with Libby to the tour itself with John, everything went smoothly and efficiently. We were celebrating two special birthdays and John tailored the wine tastings perfectly - finding out our preferences before setting off. John is a charming guide, easy to talk to and with a good sense of humour, and knows lots about wine and many other things too - very informative! The cellar door staff were great too and our lunch was fantastic - great food and ambience! If only the day could have stretched into another! We have truly wonderful memories and thanks to John and Libby for making the birthdays so special in the beautiful Barossa Valley! Highly recommend this experience!

We had an absolutely fantastic time with John in McLaren Vale. I understand he may not offer tour to this region any more as he concentrates on Barossa, but as we had been i contact a year earlier he honoured our request, and we simply could not have asked for more. John is a true, passionate wine expert, and not only that has an extremly broad (and often deep!) knowledge of many other areas. He manages to balance professionalism and friendliness perfectly, really takes note of what you like/don't like and adjusts the tour accordingly. We had a fab lunch at the Victory, and just had a perfect day out. John, thank you so much and we really hope to see you again for a Barossa tour!
