See the major sights of Adelaide on a coach tour that takes you past attractions like Victoria Square, Chinatown, King William Road, Hutt Street, and the Central Market. Ascend the Mt Lofty Ranges for photo ops, and visit the quaint town of Hahndorf for tea and time to walk around independently. When booking, you have the option to upgrade your city sightseeing experience to include a pre-tour cruise on the River Torrens.
  • Adelaide sightseeing tour by coach with optional river cruise
  • Catch all the highlights of Adelaide’s city center, as well as charming towns in the outskirts
  • Drive to the top of the Mt. Lofty Ranges, where you can disembark for panoramic views
  • Travel through the picturesque Piccadilly Valley and villages in the lush foothills of Adelaide en route to Hahndorf
  • Enjoy afternoon tea or a flight of beer in Hahndorf followed by time to explore the quaint town on your own
  • Learn about the history and modern-day culture of Adelaide from a knowledgeable local guide
  • Upgrade your tour to begin with a cruise on the River Torrens on the city's iconic Popeye boat
Note: If you select the river cruise option (see below for more details), this takes place before the coach tour.

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 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 free time in town to enjoy an included afternoon tea or flight of German beers and explore the charming streets independently. Your guide tells 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 round-trip boat ride on the Torrens River. 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 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 at the rotunda (near the jetty in Elder Park) before the coach arrives to start your sightseeing tour.

Not quite what was expected. The river tour was very short. It also meant that most of the city tour was missed as the river tour is picked up as the city tour heads off to Hahndorf.

Expected to see more of Adelaide so the fact that we went straight from the river cruise to the Adelaide outskirts meant we still have a lot to see in Adelaide itself. Tour of Hahndorf and surrounding areas was excellent
