Saw many interesting villages and beautiful, ever-changing countryside in the hills. Very relaxing and comfortable, slow cruise along the river with nice lunch. Saw lots of birdlife. Informative tour guide. Lovely to visit the chocolate and cheese factory. Plenty of time to spend in the historic town of Mannum and lovely spots for photos.

Knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. Cruise was nice but not exciting. Enjoyed the chocolate factory and tasting at the whisky shop which wasn’t mentioned on the itinerary but is located between the chocolate and cheese factories. Overall a good day out but not great.

Return journey to Adelaide we stopped at Chocolate Factory and cheese and wine tasting unfortunately cheese and wine not opened. We stopped for 45 minutes 20 minutes sitting in the coach waiting for 4 inconsiderate travellers that were just sitting outside talking.
