Yesterday we went on the walking tour and our guide was Graham. We had a wonderful experience. Graham is passionate about his home town of Adelaide and his knowledge of every area we covered was extraordinary. We found out things, that had we not gone on the tour, we would not have known without Grahams insight. It was also an easy walk so anyone could do it. Well worth it. I will be recommending to my friends when they visit Adelaide. Keep up the good work Graham. thank you Sandra and Kevin

Our guide was extremely informative and gave us a fantastic insight into the history of Adelaide. He provided detailed stories about the various buildings and we learned so much more with him. Highly recommended

Jenny H April 2018

I would highly recommend this walking tour as an orientation to the city of Adelaide. Graham, the guide from Down to Earth tours was very welcoming and he displayed an excellent knowledge of the distinctive history of Adelaide and the cultural district along North Terrace. Even though I was the only participant on this tour, it still operated, which I was grateful for. Jenny

The Cultural Caper Adelaide Walking tour was a great way to see some of the history of Adelaide that you might otherwise miss. I greatly appreciated the fact that Graeme continued the tour even though I was the only one booked on the Sunday morning. We had an excellent two hours exploring North Terrace.. Graeme was very knowledgeable and had a folder of images showing the buildings as first built which helped the visitor to appreciate the development of Adelaide since its inception based on utopian ideas. The tour was well paced and there was plenty of time to contemplate the work that had gone into to developing the buildings with the available construction equipment. I came away with a lot of appreciation for the city and the people that have built the city over the years. The Cultural Caper Adelaide Walking Tour is a great experience.

Greame was amazing! it was just me and him and he explained the city very well to me. He is really nice. Totally recommended if you wish to understand the history of the city.

Mitch April 2017

My wife and I really enjoyed this couple of hours walking around Adelaide city getting a awesome history lesson from Graeme, he really knew his stuff and was happy to explain anything to us, it's a great way to start of a visit to a city you are visiting for the first time.

Geoff C December 2016

We took this tour while in Adelaide on a cruise. Great walking tour. Graeme was very informed and we would recommend this tour to anyone interested in Adelaide's history. Meeting the Governor's wife was an unexpected highlight.

janielkins December 2016

This was a wonderful surprise. Our guide is 3rd generation Adelaide and even though there were only 2 of us, he did not cancel the tour. It happened to be the annual Christmas parade, with 300,000 people lining the street. We connected downtown, he modified the tour so we were away from the parade and had the city to ourselves. What FUN! He took us to out of the way places and made sure we got back for the end of the parade with bag piper and confetti and then got us into the beautiful library which looks like it came direct from Harry Potter. After our tour was finished, he gave us ideas and directions for the remainder of the day. Strongly recommend.

Moira M November 2016

Graeme was very informative and friendly. Would recommend this to everyone. Not too strenuous so suitable for all age groups.

Max B September 2016

Well worth doing. Had a great guide who was extremely knowledgable. Pointed out lots of things you would probably miss on your own.

Paul R July 2016

Graham ran the tour even though there were only the two of us. It was informative, interesting and entertaining. I recommend it to any Adelaide visitor.

Greg B April 2016

an excellent start for a visit of Adelaide gave us a good background of what to see further after the tour the guide was very knowledgeable thumbs up

Natali June 2021

A very knowledgeable and engaging tour guide. If you are looking for a tour takes you through Adelaide city, then I would recommend this. Timing of the tour was on point, we learnt many different interesting facts. Graeme was exceptionally accomodating and factual, he left us all with a smile. Satisfied with the tour and pricing schedule. Not as much walking as expected so therefore everyone could do it. Would recommend.

Anne S January 2017

Enjoyed our walking tour of Adelaide despite the fact it was raining. Graham, our guide was undaunted by the rain, and enthusiastic about sharing the history of buildings and statues Enroute. It was a good grounding for our two days in Adelaide. I would recommend this tour.

Greg B April 2016
