Your guide comments on the sights along the way, including Port Elliot on Horseshoe Bay, before leaving you with two hours of free time to spend in Victor Harbor. Perhaps stop for lunch at a local restaurant or ride a horse-drawn tram to Granite Island (all food, drinks and activities are at your own expense).
Top off your day trip from Adelaide with a wine tasting in McLaren Vale, a popular wine region where you can sample fine Australian wines at a local tasting room, if you wish (tasting fees not included).
