This tour is a perfect one day tour of Adelaide and surrounds. City, MV and Glenelg with some extras in between. Russell is a perfect host and guide. Full of knowledge, very accommodating, keeps the tour on time but satisfies every request. A really great tour, for good value and just a lovely day out. Even if you don’t like bus or guided tours- you will love this one.

Russell was the most amazing tour guide you could ask for. My partner and I are from Adelaide and did the wine tour last minute as another canceled and it was even better than the other could have been! Lovely servers and venues, and once again Russell is second to none!! ♥️

Great tour if you want to experience some of Adelaide and Handhorf as well as wine. If you are a big fan of wine and want a big focus on that, this might be the tour for you. I found it perfect - two lovely wineries with plenty of wines to sample.

Great tour! Highly recommend it! Russell was a fantastic guide.

Great day out if you have a time limit on staying in Adelaide.
