The city tour gave us a good introduction to the main sites of interest in the city and the driver was full of interest facts. Worth doing on your first day in Adelaide.
We did two tours, one the Adelaide sightseeing tour and the other to the Barossa Valley and Hahndorf. The pick-ups from the hotel went smoothly and the drivers both talked about the areas we travelled through. Thanks

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!
We enjoyed both of these tours. On the City sightseeing day the Haighs Chocolate Factory was unexpectedly closed so that was disappointing however for the rest of the time everything else went smoothly. I am glad we added the river cruise when booking... The time on the boat went quickly however it was probably the most enjoyable part of the first day for me. This was a good introduction to Adelaide.
The second day we went to the Barossa and Hahndorf. It was a faultless day. The Barossa is beautiful and Hanhdorf is charming. The vineyard visits were enjoyable, lunch was very good and it was a really balanced mix of places. The drivers who did the pickups and the tours on both days were knowledgeable and professional and the time at the different stops were just right. Impressive.
It was a lovely day for sightseeing but the time spent at McLaren Vale seems a little short. Still, a good day trip.
Great tour of the city tour guide was fun with jokes tour well presented
The Barossa Valley and Handorf tour was amazing. I loved it. Phil was the guide of that tour, he did a great job on this small group tour. I would recommend it to anyone. On this tour you go to a couple wineries and each winery does something to make every experience unique. The sightseeing tour, well that is a different story. The tour does not really show you anything that you could not see on the free tram throughout the city. Save your money! For sure go on Barossa Valley and Handorf tour, just don't book sightseeing 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.
