It was good to see the...
Melissa_Q, Jun 2022
It was good to see the river bank, houses and pastures. The food was nothing to write about. Loved Hahndorf and would have liked to spend the 2 hrs that we were originally told rather than having it cut short by half an hour.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hi Melissa I am not sure where you got the two hours from for Hahndorf as the Adelaide Hills Tour and River Murray cruise is never a 2-hour stop in Hahndorf as the cruise finishes at 2pm and we don't get to hahndorf until around 3 p.m. then having to return you to your hotel by 5 p.m. so generally a Hahndorf stop is a little over an 1 hour of free time I'm also sorry you didn't enjoy the meals because the vessel has great reviews over it's meals. Fresh produce is delivered to the vessel daily and the cooks and chefs prepare the meals each morning. Also the vessel caters for a large range of dietary requirements and has never had issue with dietary needs that I am aware of. The vessel purposely keeps it's meals simple as to be able to serve large groups over a relative short period of time so passengers can enjoy the river cruising and sights. The whole cruise is only over 3 hours with the staff serving the first two courses in the first half of the cruise. Best Regards Greig

The whole day was wonderful and Vesna was a terrific guide. We visited the Mt Lofty lookout, had lunch on the river and then visited Hahndorf in the afternoon. The day was well organised and we would highly recommend this tour.

An adventure with Paul.
John_H, Apr 2022
Paul, our safe and enthusiastic driver and tour guide entertained our group all day. His driving skills where safe and always willing to go that extra mile for his clients. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with this particular company, supported by their latest driver / guide Paul. Thank you Paul for allowing us to explore your beautiful city of Adelaide. The comfort of your van was spacious and comfortable. An excellent tour for those keen to be entertained while discovering a new city. Thank you Paul. 👍👍👍

Great small group tour
joannewallington, Mar 2022
Loved this tour our driver Paul was professional, friendly and informative. Loved that it was a small group. We enjoyed our short stops at Mt Lofty and Hahndorf as well along the cruise on the Murray, which included lunch with dessert, there was great commentary along the way. I would highly recommend this tour company. My only wish was for more time in Hahndorf, but we were a group of 4 ladies who do like to shop 😂
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Joanne. Thank you for your review and we are happy that you enjoyed your day out. We look forward to seeing you again on tour with CP Tours and Charters Greig
A Great Day Out!
h4zg7c9262, Mar 2022
Lovely small group tour. Vesna was very friendly and accommodating. Murray River cruise was nice, but not as pretty as I thought it would be. Hahndorf was a very quaint little town, but we were only given 1 hour here which wasn’t long enough. All in all it was a lovely day out.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Thank you for your lovely review and I'm very happy you enjoyed time with my wife Vesna as your guide. On this particular tour the highlight is the actual cruise and we can only have time for a taste of Hahndorf. To see Hahndorf truly you will need a half a day to see all shops and this can be arranged on a sightseeing tour. The part of the river that we are touring in Murray Bridge doesn't have those beautiful sandstone Cliffs we see further upstream but again the wetlands are amazing and River itself changes with each season.

Picked up from hotel,...
Sue_M, Mar 2022
Picked up from hotel, great tour guide Paul. Explained a lot about the areas we visited. Had a great day, looking at Mt Lofty, waterwheel, Beerenberg jam and river cruise. The food on river cruise was lovely. Great chicken schnitzel and apple crumble. Afternoon walk around Hahndorf.
Response from Host, Mar 2022
Sue thank you for your review and I'm very pleased that our new driver Paul gave you the history and a sightseeing that you enjoyed. I will look forward to the next time you visit Adelaide so we can show you other parts of our wonderful state. Greig

Relaxing day.
Robert_H, Jan 2022
The Adelaide Hills were very interesting but the lunch cruise was a bland experience. The tour company was very professional in every respect and are recommended.
Response from Host, Jan 2022
Robert Thank you for your review and im happy you thought the Adelaide Hills Tour was good and my company is also recommended. I'm sorry the lunch cruise on the Murray was not to your total liking but thank you for booking with us and hope you may try a sightseeing tour or wine tour next time you visit Adelaide.
Tracey_M, Jun 2021
Tour guide great. Paddleboat I believe is getting a revamp, which is much needed. A bit underwhelming. Mt Lofty nice.
Response from Host, Jun 2021
Thank you Tracey for your review and I'm glad that my wife Vesna is a good tour guide. As you stated the paddlewheeler is being revamped coming out of the water in July this year for a complete overhaul and repaint as it has been a few years since it could come out of the water other than that I'm glad that you enjoyed Mt Lofty and the rest of your tour. Best Regards Greig
