I really enjoyed this tour. I loved the morning city tour portion with our visit to the wine institute, which was very informative. The city is beautiful and our guide had so much information and interesting stories to share. Our afternoon in Hanhndorf, visiting the town and shopping, was a great way to top off the day. I’m so glad I went on this tour. With only 2 days in Adelaide this tour was a great way to learn about the city and surroundings and get the big picture.

The driver was not friendly to start and was slightly better after lunch. It felt like we were doing him a favour. I feel that we did not spend enough time in Hahndorf as we did a detour for the driver wanted to pick up his marmalade.
