Driver very good and informative, great tour. I wish in McLaren Vale we had the opportunity to visit at least one other winery and a little longer than the 30 minutes we had at Hardy's.

From on-time pick up at our hotel, to drop off 8 hours later, this tour was everything it promised. Knowledgeable commentary along the way, beautiful photo opportunities, and longer stops were just the right length of time. Highly recommended if you want to get an overview of Adelaide and its surrounds.
