Adelaide SA Recommended Tours

Jul 23, 2008
Worldly tourists and regular visitors to Adelaide will recognize it easily as the wine capital of Australia. But there is so much more in Adelaide than just fine wine, as this list of recommended tours will show.

Adelaide has many tours to offer. In fact, there's something that'll fit the interest of just about every tourist. You'll be able to match any budget or schedule with one or more of these exciting tours. Plus, many of them offer a chilled glass of wine!

First time visitors will enjoy the free 99B and 99C buses, offering an interesting look at the city and the opportunity to get to know it better. You'll see all the shopping and entertainment options available, and get to look at some of Adelaide's impressive architecture.

For those who love history, the Culture Heritage Guided Walk could be a good choice. You'll hear about Adelaide's history and founding father, William Light, as well as many of the other people who made the state what it is today.

The outfit called Adelaide Private Tours offers a unique look at the city and gives you a close-in and intimate view of everyday Adelaide living. It includes tours or rural villages, meetings with local artists and even dinner with a local family.

There is also a "Pubs and Pulpits" tour which brings visitors right to the doorstep of two things that Adelaide is famous for - its drinking places and its churches.

Those who love the great outdoors will have a great time on the Guided Bird Walks and free guided walks of the Botanic Gardens. Travel up and down the Torrens River and get a chance to look closely at the animals and plants of the region.

For surfing and whale watching, sign up with Premier Stateliner for the Victor Harbor and Cockle Train Tour which takes you to Victor Harbor, Port Elliott, Middleton and Goolwa. They also offer the Little Penguin Colony tour to nearby Granite Island which lets you witness the heart-warming sight of hundreds of small penguins walking on the beach just before sunset.

Of course, a trip to Adelaide should also include wine tasting. There are dozens of tours available to guide you through the five famous wine producing regions of Adelaide. All of them - Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, the Coonawarra, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills - are known for their amazing award winning wines.

There are dozens of tours available that offer visits to wine tasting venues and a few food and grape stops, with novel side trips to impressive Lutheran Churches and old German towns. Among these are Adelaide Sightseeing, Gray Line and Busway Travel Service. Perhaps the best available tour is "A Taste of South Australia" which provides luxurious and private introductions to the best wine and food available throughout the state.

Those looking for a great weekend should try Coonawarra, producer of many of Adelaide's classic red wines. This area is also host to the Naracoorte Caves Conservation Park, which is listed on the World Heritage list.

Or, enjoy the McLaren Vale Food and Wine tour, offering a trip to the site of forty-eight fantastic wineries and some of the most magnificent beaches in the state.
