This experience has been great! Our bus driver, Tom, was really friendly and give us so many information during the tour. He drove in a safe way and we were on time during the whole experience! If you go to Adelaide you definitely have to do this experience. It’s highly recommended!

JR was a brilliant tour host and took us out of the way to spot a mob of kangaroos! The wine tasting in both venues was excellent and the company of other travellers was very entertaining. Would definitely recommend this trip!
