What You Can Expect

Take the option to cruise the Torrens River on ‘Popeye’ the city’s most beloved and treasured icon. The first Popeye ferry service was launched in 1935 and continues to this day. Enjoy a 40-minute cruise and see the city center from the water, with a stop at the Adelaide Zoo where you can meet the Giant Pandas!
Wang Wang and Funi are the only Giant Pandas in the Southern Hemisphere and the first to live permanently in Australia. Visit the state-of-the-art exhibit and learn about where they come from and how they survive in the forest today.
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.
