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.

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

Peter was an excellent driver/guide who negotiated very crowded streets of Hahndorf calmly and safely. Enjoyed the beer tasting and free time to browse and shop. A tasting experience at Beerenberg would have been good.

Fantastic driver who was a great guide and we're lucky to have a good group. Both wineries were fantastic and was overall a great tour to do early in your trip to get a few ideas of where to go in your next few days

Fantastic day with personal guide Singla in a lovely car. Activities and times tailored to our request fun and interesting. Highly recommend!
