Overall this was a very enjoyable and informative tour, and while we only had a limited time visiting Adelaide, was definitely worth investing a day. Baden had some very interesting insights into Adelaide’s history and culture. He also gave us interesting insights into the wine regions, for us amateur tasters. The scenery on the drive, and the wineries themselves, were gorgeous. We also tried some lovely wines and there was no pressure to enjoy or buy any (although we did anyway - plenty). A great way to experience one of the world’s most important wine regions.

Toby our driver/guide was fantastic, he ensured we didn’t miss a thing and thoroughly explained everything, mt lofty was overcast so rather than miss out he took us there on our way home as the sun was setting

A fun & informative day. Our guide, Jason, was happy, friendly & knowledgeable. Lots of wines available for tasting & the grazing plate for lunch was delicious.

Such a great tour and Toby was very informative. I highly recommend

Great guide who provided so many interesting facts about Adelaide.
