I really enjoyed this tour! The driver was very informative and funny. He explained everything in detail. We visited an Trinity Church which was fascinating. Oh, and the trip to Haigh's chocolates.....what bliss. Unlike other tours (Cadbury Chocolate Factory in Hobart), you get to see into the factory complex and the tour guide from Haighs was very informative. You get to have a coffee/tea while there and, of course, try and buy chocolates. I then travelled on the 'popeye' and loved the commentary on board. It was a great tour overall and I'd go again. Just one word of warning though - it is important to phone and check the tour the day before. When I did so, my booking - although confirmed - wasn't showing.
The sightseeing tour was very informative, with plenty of time to stop and take pictures. The trip to the Haig chocolate factory was a must. Free chocolates all round, what more could a girl want!
This is a great way to get an overview of beautiful Adelaide. The architecture is wonderful and you will get a great appreciation of the history of this city. You will tour around the city itself, see some of the main sights including the fascinating chocolote factory - all chocolates hand made at Haigh's , free samples too! Then you will gravel to Glenelg beach, where you can take in the beach, jetty and marina. There's plenty of time and its an interesting tour.
An interesting tour but disappointing also. we only got off the bus to see Haighs chocolates and at Glenelg. it would have been nice to go up Mt lofty and maybe get out somewhere else, and not much opportunity for photos. The driver was informative and humorous.
your itinerary is a little deceptive. Upon reading it I presumed we would actually be visiting the places of interest, not just a quick bus drive through them with the exemption of Haigs chocolates which was the highlight of the tour. I also thought the Popeye cruise or the zoo was also a feature which it was not. Better clarification is needed for this tour.
The City Sightseeing Tour is only average. It's dominated by the visit to the chocolate factory, where the factory 'tour' involved being shown a cocoa bean and having a glimpse at the factory through a perspex window. Took about 5 mins. The 'chocolate tasting' involved being given a couple of chocolate buttons and a 10% discount voucher. The 'coffee' which was meant to go with the 'tasting' was a coffee machine in the corner of the shop which the driver mentioned but we were never shown. Just a means of getting people to buy their chocolates it seemed to me. The driver left laden with his own huge bag of chocolates which I found a bit suspicious. Overall not up to par.
