Full description

Join this full-day small-group tour featuring some of Adelaide's finest experiences, including a visit to the German settlement town of Hahndorf and two wine tastings. Pickup is available from selected locations around Adelaide CBD.

Your tour starts with a city highlights tour. As you get your bearings, learn about Adelaide's history and gain some insider secrets from your tour guide, the must-dos, the places to visit, and the best restaurants at which to enjoy Adelaide's finest food.

Traveling out of the city, the tour takes you to visit the iconic Adelaide Oval (events permitting). Then, head through picturesque North Adelaide, scattered with stunning Federation architecture and lavish homes. 

Be sure to have your camera ready because the next stop is a spectacular view of Adelaide from the summit of Mount Lofty.

From Mount Lofty, it's on to Hahndorf. The German settlement of Hahndorf is an absolute delight. With its abundance of boutique shops and eateries, there's plenty to explore as you enjoy 2 hours of free time to do whatever you please.

Meet the bus back at Bus Stop 54 on the main street of Hahndorf. Climb back on board, sit back, relax, and enjoy the short but scenic drive through the heart of the beautiful Adelaide Hills en route to the iconic wine-tasting region of McLaren Vale.

Once you arrive at McLaren Vale the first stop is the stunning Chapel Hill Winery. Have your taste buds primed and your camera poised as your host at Chapel Hill tantalizes you with a wonderful wine tasting experience at their picturesque cellar door.

From Chapel Hill, you'll wind through the stunning countryside, with grapevines and sea views as you head to the next winery, the quaint Shingleback Winery. 

This Wine tasting is really relaxed and you'll get to enjoy a structured tasting of Shinglebacks finest wines. If you're peckish, you can purchase a cheeseboard to enjoy with your wine.

Now the tour heads back towards Adelaide along the scenic route. Gaze out at the Adelaide coastline as you journey towards the final destination of the day, Adelaide's beautiful seaside suburb of Glenelg. 

There are two options here. Either take a 20-minute stroll to check the place out and hop back on board or stay and make your own way back on the tram.

Great trip with a really knowledgeable and interesting guide (Craig). Nice mix of things with a good introduction to Adelaide city and hills before getting down to the main event with two really good wine tastings in beautiful settings. The beach town of Glenelg is the perfect way to finish the tour off you can stay out there for the evening if you want and just get the tram back Definitely would recommend

Tour guide was really informative and very passionate about Adelaide so it was great to listen to his enthusiasm! Hahndorf was a lovely town to visit and the wine tastings were amazing. A lot was packed into one day, but I feel we still had a good amount of time in each place

Very nicely arranged and paced. Maybe we were lucky, coz we had a wonderful driver/tour guide - Tom who was hilarious, and very knowledgeable, plus a super smooth driver. We visited a few places we were not actually expected to visit. The wine tasting at McLaren Vale was amazing too! Tom certainly played a big role in making our experience more memorable and enjoyable. In all, a very nice day tour that I feel that I can highly recommend.
