A great day out , our driver was great and went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable and the scenery and boat ride was fabulous , our trip was to celebrate a birthday and the chef made a birthday cake which was 1st class , a highly recommended tour.
Enjoyable drive thru Adelaide hills to Murray River. Boarded the Proud Mary for 2hrs while guests went ashore for 2hr tour. VIewed the countryside along the riverbank and colourful cliffs while we ate a delicious buffet lunch of prawns, cold meats, salads and fresh fruit. Choc and cheese stop on way back.
Lovely cruise on the river with a very good lunch included. Well worth it.
lovely tour of the river, great lunch, nice staff
driver was full of interesting information, he had a great sense of humour, the meal on the boat was first rate, the boat captain was pleasant [not friendly] shame, the rest of the boat crew were great, boat ride could have been longer ?.
Beautiful Lunch while watching the wonderful country side slide by. We were lucky and had the River Murray full of water. Would tell anyone it is a must do. Driver was the best.
Nice day trip with knowledgeable and friendly drivers. Nice buffet lunch on boat, but the boat trip is over very quickly!

It should be clearer when you need to be at the bus station and the address of Adelaide central bus station. The driver was excellent, very knowledgable and friendly. Thoroughly recommended. also needs to be clearer as to the itenerary for the day as I was under the impression the cruise was the main part of the day rather than just 2 out of 8 hours.

A thoroughly enjoyable day with a friendly and knowledgeable coach driver. The crew and the atmosphere on board the vessel were very good and the day is to be highly recommended.
Excellent.very informative commentary.Mannum not worth 1.1/2 hour stop. Extra 1/2 hour on the river would be preferred.
This was a great day. The cruise along the river was very relaxing. The drive from Adelaide was interesting and the visit to the chocolate factory was a fun addition. Lunch on the boat was of great quality.
A good trip and I've wanted for a long time to go on the Murray River. Loved the drive in the Adelaide Hills.
River Tour possibly a bit short, but an enjoyable day trip from adelaide
Our recent 4-night cruise on the Murray Princess from Mannum in South Australia was a very enjoyable experience. The vessel carries up to 120 passengers and was close to fully booked on our cruise.
Although they could not be classed ‘luxurious’, the tiny self-contained cabins were clean and comfortable with adequate storage for clothing however the beds rather hard.
The clientele would best be described as mature active, but provision is made for the less mobile. The three decks are serviced by a lift.
The food was uniformly excellent, though not conducive to maintaining a stable weight! The public bars and lounges were pleasant and spacious and the overall service was friendly and relaxed but efficient. The vessel is fully air conditioned.
On-shore activities such as a night-time bush barbeque, a vineyard visit and a trip to a wool shed are included and surprisingly interesting.
One of the outstanding experiences is a visit to the Nagut Nagut Aboriginal Reserve, where archaeological investigations at the base of the towering cliffs have uncovered relics of occupation more than 10,000 years old and where members of the river-side tribes can explain the significance of ancient rock engravings which depict the river animals. A climb to the top of the massive cliffs gives spectacular views and takes you into another harsher desert environment which also shows evidence of its previous inhabitants.
The only caveat we would mention is that it can be extremely hot during the high summer months with a possibility of day-time temperatures above 40C.
Was ok. A bit disappointed with the boat we went on and it would have been awesome to have a commentry about some of the wild life around river. Food was nice
Pick up from hotel and a comfortable bus. Excellent friendly fun driver with very informative information along the way.
The meal on board was lovely. A relaxing way to see some of Adelaide's sight. Thank you. would recommend to all.
my wife and i went to SA for our anniversary and took the 1 day tour of the Murray River
we had a great time the bus driver was tremendous he continuously bombarded us with the history and information of places as we where driving passed it was really great,
then we arrived at the boat and the crew was fantastic the food was really good.
i strongly recommend this tour and VIATOR it is not often that you book something on-line and you get exactly what you wanted and the customer service exceeds the expectation great day out wonderful information and great people A MUST FOR ANYBODY TRAVELLING TO ADELAIDE
Overall the day was very pleasant - helped by perfect weather. Bus trips both ways were fine and the bus driver provided lots of information along the way. I have to say though, that his personable demeanour whilst driving and giving the talk he clearly gives all the time, did not match his conduct at other times. He did not engage at all and was clearly just doing his job and didnt feel the need to extend the bonhomie to times when he wasnt required to. The hour and a half at Mannum after the boat trip was too long - 45 minutes would have been just fine. Food was nice, not sure about the morning tea. Boat trip was lovely. Anyway, my parents enjoyed the day and that's what it was all about.
Trip up the Murray was fantastic lunch was great. Would have liked more time on river and less in bus.
Bus was a little uncomfortable bus driver seemed a little inexperienced in driving.
We had a most enjoyable trip.the meal on the river boat was lovely.our driver was very informative and most entertaining.
A very relaxed day with an enjoyable river cruise and an excellent lunch. The morning coffee stop at strathalbyn was perhaps a bit short to see much of the town, whilst the after lunch time in Mannum was too long, given that there is little to see and it was very hot. The toy factory is great, but we just didn't have enough luggage space or weight allowance to bring all the things we liked back to UK!
Our driver was very good providing lots of information about the areas we passed through.
An excellent trip and value for money. The coach driver (Terry) was a mine of local information and gave a good running commentary. The lunch on board the "Proud Mary" was as good as the brochure said it would be, first class. The only downside was the weather. On the day we took the tour it was one of the hottest days reaching 37degrees, and we wilted. Otherwise it was an enjoyable trip and we are glad we took it.
This was a very pleasant trip, though we felt we could have spent more time on the riverboat, ie travelled further on the river. Loved the birdlife.
This was a great day, the driver was a wealth of information and the Murray River awesome.
Lunch was great and the staff very helpful on the riverboat. Scenery fantastic..little stops along the way perfect for camera shots.

A lovely trip. I've always wanted to travel on a paddle boat on the Murray and I was not disappointed. Not only did I enjoy the scenery on route and on the river, but enjoyed the commentary on the coach and on the River giving history and stories about the region . As a scrap-booker, I took lots of photographs and am looking forward to doing my album pages on my day on the Murray. Another tick on the 'bucket list'.
