Bus was good. Driver was ok. Tour was just hours and hours of driving with little content. Some stops were just 10 minutes for photos. Longest stop was lunch in Victor. Town was dead, nothing of real interest, Little or no information. Winery stop included no information about cellar door and just provided a 20 minute stop to buy wine-- very boring. All the brochure boxes were checked, but that's it ! This tour needs to be reconfigured. We did not book to drive around for 4 hours. Will not recommend it on Trip Advisor --- EDV

The driver / guide was informative, although I noticed that he had to ask passengers to reduce noise so that other passengers could hear the commentary.

It was a pleasant enough day, although I got the impression that it was designed as a bus trip to get people around the coast so that they could walk around towns ie there was nothing organised at any stop, with people left to their own devices. Having said that, the highlight for me was definitely Victor Harbor, and the opportunity to walk out to Granite Island. A few people did this walk it was very windy but I noticed that most people seemed to spend the two hours inside restaurants, which seemed a bit of a waste.

If I was doing the trip again, I would probably get a bus straight to Victor Harbor and spend the day exploring there.

Lovely day. Lots of information given about various points along the way. The stop in the wine region possibly could have been a bit longer. Victor Harbor - nice place and lunch was great.
