Our guide was great. Good knowledge of the markets and history as well as a good rapport with the stall holders. Lots of yummy samples. We ended up staying longer having lunch and making a few yummy purchases. Highly recommended

A great tour to learn about the history of the market & stall holders. The tour guide provided samples from various stalls as we toured around. Best way to start the exploration of the narkets.

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.

Fabulous visit with excellent tour guide!! Everyone very friendly and knowledgeable. Don’t miss it!! Excellent value for money.
