What people are saying about Hahndorf
Getaways were happy to pick us up in Largs North - well out of the city - which we appreciated. There were four of us on the tour (myself and partner, plus two ladies from Melbourne) and we had a great day getting to know each other plus our tour guide Gavin. We went to two wineries, a gin distillery (Ambleside - had very nice tasting of their three gins, with added boranicals), a family owned strawberry farm (Beerenberg - lots of jams, honeys and jellies etc to taste), a cheese place in Hahndorf (more tastings), plus time spent looking around the charming town of Hahndorf itself. It has heaps of shops with quality products, wine, food and beer, and we had an excellent German lunch in the historic Hahndorf Inn. Gavin was happy to tailor the tour to our preferences and we all had a superb day out.
The tour was lovely and we had a great afternoon. Our coach driver, Hank, was very pleasant and helpful and I was impressed with the organisation involved in getting us all back to our hotels. The only sour note, and it was a big one, was the attitude of the staff at the Hahndorff Inn where we were sent for afternoon tea. We were treated as second class citizens as soon as she knew we were tour passengers, given a very limited menu to make our selection and made to sit on the only grotty table in the room. Take the afternoon tea off, reduce the tour price accordingly and let people get their own. There is plenty of choice and there was plenty of time.
Disappointed with Hahndorf, it really was just a drive there and back. As a 4 hour tour I expected to be able to see and learn more about the historical seetlement. There is an art gallery there, but as we were left in the Main Street for 1.5 hours, there wasn't any way of finding it outside of the town.
Needed more information as to where we were to be picked up after the cruise. Being told to wait on the footpath in front of the rotunda. Bus will pick you up there soon after 1, would have been helpful. Both guides excellent.
What a great day trip! We covered all the highlights of Adelaide and the surrounding area. Peter our driver and tour guide kept us entertained whilst pointing out all the things to see. Would certainly recommend this tour
