Pickup is available from selected locations around Adelaide CBD. Tour itinerary: Depending on your selected pickup point, you will be collected at around 9:00 AM. The tour starts with a city highlights tour. As you get your bearings, learn about Adelaide's history and gain some insider secrets from your tour guide, the must-dos, the places to visit, and the best restaurants at which to enjoy Adelaide's finest food. Traveling out of the city, the tour takes you to visit the iconic Adelaide Oval (events permitting). Then, head through picturesque North Adelaide, scattered with stunning Federation architecture and lavish homes. Be sure to have your camera ready because the next stop is a spectacular view of Adelaide from the summit of Mount Lofty. From Mount Lofty, it's on to Hahndorf. The German settlement of Hahndorf is an absolute delight. With its abundance of boutique shops and eateries, there's plenty to explore as you enjoy 2 hours of free time to do whatever you please. Meet the bus back at Bus Stop 54 on the main street of Hahndorf. Climb back on board, sit back, relax, and enjoy the short but scenic drive through the heart of the beautiful Adelaide Hills en route to the iconic wine tasting region of McLaren Vale. Once you arrive at McLaren Vale the first stop is the stunning Chapel Hill Winery. Have your taste buds primed and your camera poised as your host at Chapel Hill tantalizes you with a wonderful wine tasting experience at their picturesque cellar door. From Chapel Hill, you'll wind through the stunning countryside, with grapevines and sea views as you head to the next winery, the quaint Shingleback Winery. This Wine tasting is really relaxed and you'll get to enjoy a structured tasting of Shinglebacks finest wines. If you're peckish, you can purchase a cheeseboard to enjoy with your wine. Now the tour heads back towards Adelaide, but taking the scenic route. Gaze out at the Adelaide coastline as you journey towards the final destination of the day, Adelaide's beautiful seaside suburb of Glenelg. There are two options here. Either take a 20-minute stroll to check the place out and hop back on board or stay and make your own way back on the tram.

An amazing tour in a minibus fitting so much in to 8.5 hours, from an Adelaide city tour to Mount Lofty and on to quaint Hahndorf. After that a stop at 2 lovely wineries with wine tastings and a yummy cheese platter, then back to Glenelg on the coast at sunset. For our group of 4 friends it was perfect, and everything ran like clockwork.

Enjoyed our day tour immensely. Craig our driver was friendly and eager to answer questions. Got a different perspective of Adelaide, time in Hahndorf was nice. Had 2hrs to wander and have lunch, then over to Clare Valley for 2 wine tastings, First at Shingleback winery. This was seated wine tasting, we opted for the extra cheese plate ($20) which went well with the wine, then on to Chapel Hill wines, this was a stand up tasting was also good, then drive back through Glenelg and then back to Adelaide. A lovely day. Would recommend.
