Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Victor Harbor with McLaren Vale Wine Region Tour 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.
Enjoyed the trip. Loved Strathalbyn for morning tea. Would have preferred longer in Victor Harbour (the cafe we went to for lumch took far too long to serve our sandwiches so we had less time to explore Granite Island). Wasn't so keen on the winery in McLaren Vale. Missed out on Glenelg as coach running late back to Adelaide. Coach was comfortable and hotel pick up and drop off was efficient.
In spite of the hype and the good services of the tour operator, the tour is not as fab as the reviews make it to be. McLaren is very quiet and the range of tasting was quite limited. Port Victor is a nice quiet place but if we do not get the inside stories and the history, then better (and cheaper) to take the regular coach for a day there with access to the very same attractions such as granite island and the horse tram. The lively bit came with the aspects of the murray river and the development of the area. I think the cockle train and its elements need to be integrated somehow to make the tour worth what you normally charge. The local produce needs to be promoted more for the tour to be really 'regional'.
Not impressed at all. Very disappointed with the driver and the pick up from hotel area was very confusing. Tour was very rushed and too time restricted to the point we had to leave part of our lunch as we didn't have enough time in Victor harbour. I found the driver to be rude and not friendly at all.
Did enjoy the tour, however we thought wine region part of tour would've been equal in length to Victor Harbor. We got 2hours in Victor Harbour which was far too long, and only 30mins max when we stopped at McLaren Vale. If you're after a wine tour do a Barossa valley wine tasting tour.
Unfortunately this tour was just a long ride around the wine region, but no wine tasting included unless you did it yourself at one of the stops en route. The time was limited, so the tasting might have been a little difficult. However, the day was quite good despite this.
Pleasant enough, although we spent a lot of time on the bus and not enough at the stops.
