Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Murray River Riverboat Tour including Lunch from Adelaide. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
A long day - river scenery was not very interesting. Lunch was enjoyable. Tour guide/bus drivers were excellent - very friendly, knowledgeable and caring, especially with the older visitors.
As this was a lunch tour table places for all guests is a vital component. Advised that a Vegetarian would be on board it would have been more appropriate that vegetarian protein would have been part of the meal. So to have to insist that some form of vegetarian protein be provided was a disappointment. Staff initially abrupt proved to be very helpful in the end. I hope this critique is taken as helpful as it is intended. The tour itself was very relaxing and the food for non vegetarian was delicious though trying to balance plate knife, fork and a glass of wine on ones lap was difficult to say the least. Thank you
Not great. Murray River gorgeous but only 2 hours on river cruise with a rushed atmosphere. Then taken to a toy factory in Adelaide Hills which we were not aware of and wasted 1.5 hrs which could have been spent on cruise.That place is awful !Why would you bother when majority of people on this trip was over 50! Lazy planning for this tour.
Only about an hour spent on the river. Very pleasant but not a lot to see. Nice lunch but then time spent in a small town with less than interesting shops and a visit to a toy factory/shop. Lovely shop but limited buying when you have luggage restrictions.
Interesting enough, although more time on the Murray would have helped. And I thought we'd be on a paddle steamer, so I was disappointed with the 20 minute cruise on the modern boat.
The cost was far to expensive for what was a limited menu. The coffee machine was a disaster and to be rebuked for not knowing hot water had to be drawn from an adjacent tap was an insult. Eating and viewing the scenery at the same time is not possible hence part of the attraction was reduced. The coach director was excellent but the 1hr stop in a rural village which was soulless added to a disappointing day. Reflecting on the day back home in the UK we would find it difficult to recommend the tour.
The tour was quite ok, to expectations really, right up to the part where we were put to "roam" in downtown midwinter Mannum for an hour. An hour here! You are kidding. But wait, it got worse. We then got bussed to a nightmare "wooden toy factory" where not only is the factory out of bounds, quite a lot of the toys were made in China. We hated it, and we had kids. Heaven forbid to think about childless couples. Avoid.
The title is misleading. Out of an 8 hour day, you only spent 45 minutes on the river boat. The majority of time was spent riding in a bus. Also, you should let people know that there are side tours to a toy factory, etc. as this was not of interest to us.
