5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

Our day was wonderful and interesting. Our tour guide Greg and his partner were fabulous!! We enjoyed our visit to Mt. Lofty where we had a beautiful view of the area before our relaxing lunch cruise on a paddle boat on the River Murray. The chicken schnitzel was not only plentiful but delicious also!! After lunch we toured the area and stopped at many other stops along the way, including Hahndorf a beautiful German town and a stop for some delicious jams at Beerenberg. Greg was very informative and knowledgeable about the area and its history. A delightful and fun day that we highly recommend for anyone that wants to see a lot and enjoy the area.

Rudi was a super guide. Turned out to be only ones on the tour, we visited mount lofty en route to the Murray river. The paddle boat was not quite what we expected but we were pleasantly surprised by the whole trip. All followed by an hour in Hahndorf. Thanks

Excellent value. Small group of six. Tour group leader, Jessica, was professional, calm and made us feel welcome. Prompt collection from our hotel. We could not have covered so much on our own in temperatures of 100 degrees. Freshly cooked lunch on on Captain Proud highly appreciated...... as was the chilled water provided throughout the day.

I would like to thank you for the super day I had on your tour a couple of weeks ago.

The Captain Proud river trip and lunch followed by the wine and chocolate experience was so enjoyable and my own personal informative guide for the day - what more could I ask for - certainly a day to remember

Great trip! Small group, picked up from and delivered to our hotel, and tour was customised to the interests of the group and the weather! to and from the Murray River. Enjoyed the cruise, and the lunch was great especially the apple crumble!!. Would recommend trip and Roger who is a local to anyone who has not seen this area of SA.
Would recommend that Viator include mobile numbers in their bookings so drivers can contact customers.

What a great day we had. Once again we had a great driver and commentary on the history of Adelaide while we drove through the beautiful towns full of sandstone cottages and enjoying the changing hues of the autumn leaves. We met Captain Proud for our highly relaxing 3 hour lunch cruise. The boat is licensed and it was relaxing to have a drink while we learnt a bit about the beautiful Murray River and envied those lucky enough to live along it's banks. We enjoyed an amazing roast beef for lunch, or you could have had fish. Special dietary needs are catered for, as is dessert with a beautiful apple crumble or fresh fruit salad. The highlight for me was pottering around the historic charming village of Hahndorf. Can't recommend this tour highly enough.


4 star rating: Recommended January 2017

Our driver Rudi was excellent: friendly, informative and flexible. Since the tour turned out to be private besides my wife and myself there were no other guests we had full flexibility to modify the standard itinerary. I would highly recommend spending more time in Adelaide itself visiting wonderful residential suburbs, driving by historic buildings and museums. Do your research before and tell the driver what to include and what to skip. The Murray River cruise itself is a little monotonous and meanders for three hours through relatively bland South Australia farmland. However we did meet a friendly local family on board and enjoyed a tasty lunch. On the way back one of the stops is a German village of Hahndorf - a touristy lineup of souvenir shops selling German soccer jerseys, lederhosen, ice cream and fudge. If the timing is right for a meal you may enjoy a typical German dinner at one of several restaurants.
