The river cruise was 45 mins and a different way to see Adelaide, however the boat skipper sent us to the wrong place to get the bus for the rest of the tour. The Mt Lofty lookout was worth seeing and the Adelaide Hills are beautiful. The highlight was Hahndorf. Afternoon tea was delicious.

Our tour started with a short boat trip on the river, allowing us a different view of the city. We were then picked up by coach and taken up to Mt Lofty, admiring the view over the city and browsing the gift shop. But the highlight here was a sighting of a koala in the wild! The tour continued with a brief visit to Beerenberg Strawberry Farm and then on to Hahndorf where we had time to browse all the little shops as well as have Afternoon Tea before returning to Adelaide. Thanks to our driver, Phil, who helped to make this tour very enjoyable.

Easy travel experience seeing Adelaide city from the water and countryside further out. Punctual departures in both sections of the activity. Bus driver Andrew was excellent - a smooth ride and interesting commentary. A shorter gap between boat & bus, enabling a longer stay in Hahndorf would enhance the tour.
