  • This tour was amazing!

  • Good experience and fun for family!

  • The tour of Adelaide was very good. The tour guide was very informative about his city and we got to see the highlights. Adelaide is a great city to visit lots of green spaces and old buildings being cared for. The Popeye cruise was fun and it was lovely floating along the river Torrens. Adelaide zoo is fantastic and well worth a visit no matter your age or whether a single couple or family. The zoo is extremely well maintained and all staff we encountered were helpful and enthusiastic about the zoo. The grounds of the zoo are beautiful and the enclosures are great. We have been to China and seen the pandas but it was a much better experience in Adelaide visiting the pandas. i would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Adelaide wanting to see the city highlights.

  • This tour was a deappointment. Called a city tour, it was basically a bus trip with primarily obsecure information relevant to the driver such as this is where my daughter goes to school, this is where my wife gave birth. We had virtually no time at our one and only stop at the Cathedral. Though we did see the city I was thinking that there would be more stops and a chance to see the city. And though we paid for the optional river cruise, the bus was late and so we missed the river cruise at the drop off point. If this is going to be part of the tour then the driver should be able to either confirm drop off with the river cruise operator or contact them to let them know that we were going to be late. This was a disappointing end to our Adelaide visit.

  • An excellent introduction to the highlights of Adelaide shown by a very friendly, helpful guide.

  • This was an enjoyable tour.

  • This tour was ideal for us as first time visitors to Adelaide. A good overview of the city.

  • Again an excellent tour with good and interesting guide.

  • covered it off well enough but left in a park n told to wander to the waters edge for river cruise

  • Good tour for local sights
