lovely tour of the river, great lunch, nice staff
driver was full of interesting information, he had a great sense of humour, the meal on the boat was first rate, the boat captain was pleasant [not friendly] shame, the rest of the boat crew were great, boat ride could have been longer ?.
We thoughly enjoyed this day trip. We live close to Echuca and have been on their equivalent trips on the Murray in Echuca and the Adelaide trip is a much higher quality trip.
The meal was just delicious and was a credit to the organiser. Well done.
Beautiful Lunch while watching the wonderful country side slide by. We were lucky and had the River Murray full of water. Would tell anyone it is a must do. Driver was the best.
Nice day trip with knowledgeable and friendly drivers. Nice buffet lunch on boat, but the boat trip is over very quickly!
It should be clearer when you need to be at the bus station and the address of Adelaide central bus station. The driver was excellent, very knowledgable and friendly. Thoroughly recommended. also needs to be clearer as to the itenerary for the day as I was under the impression the cruise was the main part of the day rather than just 2 out of 8 hours.
A thoroughly enjoyable day with a friendly and knowledgeable coach driver. The crew and the atmosphere on board the vessel were very good and the day is to be highly recommended.
Overall the day was very pleasant - helped by perfect weather. Bus trips both ways were fine and the bus driver provided lots of information along the way. I have to say though, that his personable demeanour whilst driving and giving the talk he clearly gives all the time, did not match his conduct at other times. He did not engage at all and was clearly just doing his job and didnt feel the need to extend the bonhomie to times when he wasnt required to. The hour and a half at Mannum after the boat trip was too long - 45 minutes would have been just fine. Food was nice, not sure about the morning tea. Boat trip was lovely. Anyway, my parents enjoyed the day and that's what it was all about.
Trip up the Murray was fantastic lunch was great. Would have liked more time on river and less in bus.
Bus was a little uncomfortable bus driver seemed a little inexperienced in driving.
We had a most enjoyable trip.the meal on the river boat was lovely.our driver was very informative and most entertaining.
A very relaxed day with an enjoyable river cruise and an excellent lunch. The morning coffee stop at strathalbyn was perhaps a bit short to see much of the town, whilst the after lunch time in Mannum was too long, given that there is little to see and it was very hot. The toy factory is great, but we just didn't have enough luggage space or weight allowance to bring all the things we liked back to UK!
Our driver was very good providing lots of information about the areas we passed through.
An excellent trip and value for money. The coach driver (Terry) was a mine of local information and gave a good running commentary. The lunch on board the "Proud Mary" was as good as the brochure said it would be, first class. The only downside was the weather. On the day we took the tour it was one of the hottest days reaching 37degrees, and we wilted. Otherwise it was an enjoyable trip and we are glad we took it.
This was a very pleasant trip, though we felt we could have spent more time on the riverboat, ie travelled further on the river. Loved the birdlife.
This was a great day, the driver was a wealth of information and the Murray River awesome.
Lunch was great and the staff very helpful on the riverboat. Scenery fantastic..little stops along the way perfect for camera shots.
A lovely trip. I've always wanted to travel on a paddle boat on the Murray and I was not disappointed. Not only did I enjoy the scenery on route and on the river, but enjoyed the commentary on the coach and on the River giving history and stories about the region . As a scrap-booker, I took lots of photographs and am looking forward to doing my album pages on my day on the Murray. Another tick on the 'bucket list'.
