What You Can Expect
After boarding your air-conditioned coach with your knowledgeable guide, who provides commentary about the city’s major attractions, your Adelaide sightseeing tour starts with a drive past Chinatown, where you can admire the red lanterns, pagoda-style architecture, grocery stands and eateries that line Moonta Street, marked with a traditional Chinese arch and lion statues. Then pass by the Central Market, the center of the city’s culinary scene where hundreds of local farmers and specialty shops sell seafood, locally sourced meats and fresh produce.
Continue to Victoria Square, home to many of South Australia’s most important historical and present-day civic buildings, and see St Francis Xavier Cathedral before cruising down King William Street, where you’ll pass by the governor’s residence. Drive along trendy Hutt Street on your way to North and East Terraces, home to cultural venues like the Adelaide Botanic Gardens and South Australian Museum, and then head outside the city to climb up to the top of the Mt Lofty Ranges for panoramic views of the Adelaide area, including Glenelg and the Gulf St Vincent.
Next, venture to Hahndorf, passing by the villages of Crafers, Stirling and Aldgate, and hop out of the coach when you reach the Hahndorf Inn for two hours of time in town to enjoy included afternoon tea and explore the charming streets independently. Your guide will tell you about the history of Hahndorf, the oldest German settlement in the country. After your free time here, your tour ends with the drive back to Adelaide.

River cruise optional upgrade:
If you select this option when booking, your Adelaide sightseeing experience starts with a 1-hour round-trip boat ride on the River Torrens. Hop aboard the Popeye at the launch point in Elder Park, and set off along the river, passing by attractions like the Adelaide Zoo and the public art that lines the grounds of Linear Park. While your captain provides commentary about the many sights you’ll see next to the river, keep your eyes open for wildlife like wood ducks, Pacific black ducks, pelicans, egrets, black swans, herons and ibis. Glide underneath bridges, and enjoy the leisurely atmosphere of being on the water.
Your cruise ends with return to the departure point, from where you can relax for 20 to 25 minutes at the rotunda (near the jetty in Elder Park) before the coach arrives to start your sightseeing tour.
Great look at river Torrens with good commentary then the bus trip to Handorf with exceptional bus driver was fun. He took us to Mt Lofty and gave us time for photographs. Handorf visit we ran out of time to have a proper look at shops being busy with Easter but afternoon tea provided was scrumptious. A tour I would recommend for visitor to Adelaide as I learned so much.
Very good afternoon trip helpful guide wonderful scenery Tks best wishes from pat
An enjoyable tour and will use Viator again:
Enjoyed and would recommend.
Awesome trip and our coach driver was really great and told us heaps of interesting facts and details on our trip . Would highly recommend this tour to all Adelaide visitors .
It was amazing! We saw so much of beautifully Lofty Ranges and had a fabulous time in Handorf Village a very informed driver and saw 8 Koalas In their natural habitat - I don't think it could have been any better - extremely well done and the best part of my brief stay in Adelaide.
Would recommend this to all my friends
IT WAS GREAT THANK YOU
This was a very good trip and the main attraction was the stop off at Hahndorf, a delightful place with a very good afternoon tea.provided. While Hahndorf was clearly the highlight the trip around the hills was also interesting, especially Mount Lofty. if an improvement ws needed it could be that some attention could be given to the end of the trips. On each trip we made we were picked up from the hotel but on our return instead of being taken back there by the coach we were taken to the main depot and passengers from various trips were allocated to other coaches for return to thier hotels. This may make good economic sense but at the end of a trip having to hang about at the depot is not conducive to improved humour. It was still a good trip though.
very pleasant way to spend afternoon in Adelaide. Driver and staff were so friendly and welcoming and very clear directions in Hahndorf.
