This tour is a perfect one day tour of Adelaide and surrounds. City, MV and Glenelg with some extras in between. Russell is a perfect host and guide. Full of knowledge, very accommodating, keeps the tour on time but satisfies every request. A really great tour, for good value and just a lovely day out. Even if you don’t like bus or guided tours- you will love this one.

Russell was the most amazing tour guide you could ask for. My partner and I are from Adelaide and did the wine tour last minute as another canceled and it was even better than the other could have been! Lovely servers and venues, and once again Russell is second to none!! ♥️

Had a great day, our drive JR was fantastic!! His knowledge was amazing! Loved the whispering wall stop but the other stop in the little town was a little pointless. Cute little town but no need to stop. We did throughly enjoy our day

I was a great day thanks Paul the wineries we visited were really nice and lunch was yummo I would highly recommend Bums on Seats bus tours

Amazing group with fantastic driver/guide; JR was so approachable, knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend
