This tour was fabulous from beginning to end and is thoroughly recommended. Craig, our tour guide and driver, was very friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about his home city of Adelaide. We learnt so much from him. He was fantastic! Continuing our journey from Adelaide, we went into the hills and after stopping for a panoramic view of Adelaide and surrounds from Mt Lofty Summit we were driven to beautiful Hahndorf where we had plenty of time to wander around the shops and eat and drink. Then on to McLaren Vale where we were taken to two vineyards for wonderful wine tastings and the scenery along the way was stunning! Our final stop was the coast, at Glenelg.

Thomas is great! He is fun, knowledgeable and talkative - everything you want in a tour guide. Many times he veered off the well beaten path to show us something special that would just be missed usually. He also had tons of fun stories that make the day fly by. Thanks Thomas!

Was a really good tour. The guide was very good and offered a lot of insight. It was a pity we couldn't walk on the actual grass on the ground, but apart from that, it was great.

The Adelaide Oval Tour was outstanding with lots of brilliant stories & information from our super guide Chris Brown. It’s a world class venue and the tour was very enlightening.

A great overview of Adelaide and the surrounding area. Craig was very helpful!
