Great half day tour and Craig was great - very knowledgeable. Two great wineries and very pleasant drive

Chan_B October 2021

Craig was an amazing tour guide. Went out of his way to give us a fantastic scenic experience of beaches. Shingleback lady Hannah was a fantastic wine taste host. A lovely homely feel to this place. The best tour

Alan_J May 2021

The trip was a great experience, especially the two winery visits. The initial tour of the hills were a little boring ,and we did not have enough time in Glenelg, but the welcome that we received in the wineries was brilliant , with a special mention to Shingleback Winery , lovey people and great wines. Perhaps go straight to the McLaren Vale area and include a third winery and have a bit more time in Glenelg.

Ben_S May 2021

Great tour and friendly guide. Highly recommended. For some reason Viator has a 100 character min for reviews.

Roger_S May 2021

A fun day out - our guide was great and we learnt a lot about McClaren Vale. Would recommend. Loved the tasting at Chapel Hill.

Alison_D May 2021

This was a great afternoon tour. Two great wineries plus loads of additional stops along the way. Craig our tour guide was informative and really aimed to please. Would definitely recommend this trip if you only have a short time in Adelaide.

birdysyp April 2021

This was the 2nd wine tour of our trip, 3rd overall and best by far. Craig, our driver and guide was totally professional, knowledgeable and thoroughly helpful. It was a pleasure to have him as our guide and the day could not have been better. We went to two wineries, were given many free tastings and had loads of time to enjoy the experience, in addition to taking in some amazing sights of the coastal towns around Adelaide. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he ensured everyone onboard had a great day, which sadly can't be said of another company we went with. Don't be put off with the relatively low price, the quality of service and experience cannot be beaten. Will certainly book again when we next visit Adelaide!

Geoffrey_A April 2021

I highly recommend this trip. Interesting commentary and both wineries were welcoming offering a wide selection of wines. The guides were knowledgeable and informative. A very enjoyable experience.

Jacinta_W April 2021

Fantastic tour, mixed with a bit of history and fantastic wine. Craig was a fantastic tour guide and will definitely go again on one of their tours.

T9459PJdanielt April 2021

This is by far the best tour that I've experienced in Australia. Seeing that I was traveling solo and that no one else wanted to share a cheese platter with me, Craig the tour guide offered some complementary cheese and bread to me. Craig did go above and beyond my expectations! This is one trip that will never disappoint you.

SamiMerlo March 2021

Highly recommend this tour for anyone that wants to see wineries but also beautiful beaches that may be of difficult access if you’re not driving. Craig is very knowledgeable and funny, you’ll have a fun day with him. I enjoyed the tour very much and the selected wineries were lovely. It’s the perfect half day outside of Adelaide
