Although we know Adelaide well we went on this tour as it was gifted to us. The tour was half day of our famous wine region McLaren Vale close to Adelaide CBD. The group were mixed interstaters and two from the USA.
Our guide, Dave, was very knowledgeable and despite being locals and very familiar with the wonderful wineries and beaches nearby, we managed to still learn a lot. We could see that the group was very happy with their excursion and we were taken to just the right amount of places to enjoy but not feel rushed. The value is very good, I think $59.95 per half day with free wine tastings and comfortable travel. Thoroughly recommend.
I really enjoyed our tour of the Barossa with ‘Taste the Barossa’. Convenient pick up from the city, a great host (Mel) and a perfect day. We got to visit a few of my favorite wineries, eat a delicious lunch in Angaston and got a couple of sights in as well. The cheese platter toward the end of the day was a great surprise and much appreciated!
Although I live in Adelaide I will definitely use the convenience of a ‘Taste the Barossa’ tour again next time I want to have a good tasting.
After reading all of the great reviews here, I chartered a private tour with Taste the Barossa for myself and a 7 group of friends and it definitely exceeded our expectations! The team organised a great itinerary – a nice relaxed tour to some boutique and larger scale winerys and an amazing lunch at the roaring 40’s cafe in Angaston. We visited Hemerea Estate, Yalumba and Kalleske Wines, and also managed to squeeze in a beer at a great pub in Tanunda! The staff at all of the winerys were friendly and we never felt pressured to purchase (although, how could we not!). A big shout out to our guide Ash, who was friendly, relaxed and always attentive to our needs. I highly recommend this tour operator to anyone wanting to experience all of the amazing things the Barossa has to offer.
Had a wonderful half day tour with our guide Dave. Great to be looked after by someone who was both knowledgeable and passionate about McLaren Vale and Adelaide in general. Excellent tips about where to go for meals and how to get around a lovely city. We would highly recommend touring with Dave, we would do so again ourselves.
Our tour guide JR loves a yarn, but he was interesting and entertaining from start to finish. We learned a lot about the region. I was particularly impressed by JR’s attentiveness to an older/disabled customer on the tour. Great value and a beautiful place to visit. Happily recommend this firm.
Wanting to take my mum on a holiday to remember. JR was amazing and the trip was spectacular. So good!
Well worth the money. Thanks JR for making it so informative and fun. The wine was great too.

Loved the tour with Dave!! He is funny and informative and all around great guy!! We have had a great time and all the wineries were great and lovely staff! Highly recommended tour
A perfect afternoon checking out some of the lovely South Australian wineries. The day was made much better by our driver/guide Dave who looked after us so well and was also great fun.
We enjoyed the city tour and Handorf the driver JR was very informative and gave us a good insight into the history of the area he was very relaxed and friendly. Handorf is a beautiful village we enjoyed the German quaintness of the town and the lovely shops and eateries.
Amazing Value, sensational experience !!
We had the absolute pleasure of spending the afternoon with the most amazing tour guide Dave and visiting a few of the beautiful winery’s through McLaren Vale. Lots of beautiful wine tasting, tasty treats and picturesque sight seeing while learning so much about this amazing city. I am a convert !! The tour company were a delight to deal with and Dave made the trip even more fun. I would highly recommend this tour company if your heading to Adelaide, it really made our weekend 🙂
This was the highlight of our few days in Adelaide. We fell in love with a beautiful city and this could not have happened without our charismatic tour-guide, Dave. For two people who are not great fans of ‘sit-down’ bus tours, we enjoyed every single minute of this one. We were treated like royalty, we were looked after, we were entertained, we were shown the absolute best of South Australia in a day. Thank you, Dave, for your humour, your warmth, your realness, your humility, your knowledge and for keeping us safe throughout. Your driving is skilled and careful. Your knowledge of history is outstanding. Your passion for your city is infectious and we’ll definitely be back. Thank you! Adelaide is blessed to have people like you and we wanted to take you home! I fully recommend this tour. So many added bonuses and great value for money. Learnt so much, Hahndorf, Mount Lofty, Adelaide Oval, Glenelg beach, great vineyards, wine tasting, chocolate, almonds, olives, honey, you name it – we experienced it! And even got dropped off at the door to our hotel afterwards. What an awesome day!
We booked in for the half day tour of Adelaide as we only had the one day in this beautiful city. Dave collected us from the hotel on time, warmly welcomed us on board and introduced us to the others that he had already collected. Dave remembered our names and where we came from and all throughout the morning he generously and passionately shared with us all, his knowledge about Adelaide. Absolutely fabulous, so interesting, fantastic use of time, showed us so much and made it very interesting. My teenage son said it was the best!! Dave brought the city to life and made us feel so welcome we can’t recommend this tour, highly enough. Dave is brilliant, he deserves all the positive comments that are in these reviews, absolutely fantastic!!
I took my elderly parents and my teenage son on this terrific half day tour which was an excellent way to see and get to know Adelaide in a short space of time. Our driver was fantastic and very informative. We really enjoyed it.
Our driver, Dave, was a funny and energetic guy who was very friendly and knowledgeable of the Adelaide township and history.
We had a wonderful afternoon touring through the city into the wineries.
Dave made us feel well at home and we enjoyed the banter that was being thrown around the bus.
We wouldn’t hesitate in referring our friends to use this company for a day tour as long as they had Dave as their driver/tour guide!
Our driver and tour guide Dave was one of the best we have ever had! Really friendly and able to answer a wide range of questions from us Brits about Adelaide and all of Australia. We couldn’t recommend this half day tour highly enough. He even spotted wild kangaroo for us!
Had a wonderful afternoon in McLaren Vale with Dave. The wineries we visited were wonderful. Dave made the tour with his knowledge and good humour. Definitely worth the money.
Wonderful to have a tour with them. Great staff…professional…what do you need more? Regards from Pedram, Eli and our little baby girl.
We arrived in Adelaide by motorcycle, so decided to be ferried around. Our guide, Dave, was very knowledgeable, and funny as well. There was only 5 ppl on the bus, so it was intimate, and a lot easier to remember names. Excellent value for money.
My hubby and I are visiting Adelaide for the first time, so decided we needed an introduction before trying to navigate on our own. We picked See Adelaide’s Half day City & Hahndorf tour, which we enjoyed thoroughly.
Our driver/guide, David, was a fountain of knowledge about his city and State, which he is rightfully very proud of. Lots of fun info as well, which always makes it personal. We actually lucked out being the only people on the tour, good for us but a pity others couldn’t share in a fantastic morning taking in the sights.
We recommend this tour to anyone who would like some some interesting history as well as seeing Adelaide through the eyes of a local.
Thanks David, great fun.
Ps, on a personal note, hope your leg heals fast.
Great tour. The wine was great and the tour guide Ashley, was very informative. Would highly recommend for first time visitors to the Adelaide area. A just right lunch at the Pete Lehmann winery.
An excellent tour and highly recommended. Our tour guide Dave was the best (he so looks like Matt Damon), very knowledgeable and passionate about Adelaide, the history and the wineries we visited. The air conditioned tour bus was the perfect size. On the tour were a mixed bunch visiting from Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, USA and New Zealand, which gave Dave good fodder for jokes, entertaining the group and the hilarious banter that ensued had everyone laughing. Wineries were beautiful, the country side spectacular and topping the tour off with Glenelg beach was pretty cool. Thanks Dave for the memories – we shall be back.
Magic Day Out! Other tour company cancelled at last minute so I rang See Adelaide. No problems here with just the two of us.
Old Fashion Service and a Can Do Attitude!
Fantastic day out with Johnny (JR) who was very knowledgeable and looked like one of the Daddo brothers. LOL
Strongly recommend this company and this exciting 1/2 day tour.

Booked this half day wine tour to the McLaren Vale wine region & Glenelg at the last minute and so very glad we did. Dave our driver and tour guide was brilliant – great information, informal and entertaining. The tour was well paced, visiting 3 winery’s where plenty of wine tasting was available and enjoyed. The quality and value of the wine was excellent and we ended up buying some great reds and whites to accompany us on our 4 day road trip to Melbourne.
Group size was nice – approx 12 people, pick up was simple and close to the Hilton at bus stop T1. The tour finishes in Glenelg where you have the choice to make your own way back on the free tram or to be dropped off at your hotel.
We have been on many wine tours and this was one of the best – highly recommend.
Awesome half day tour of the Mclaren Vale wine region. Knowledgable and passionate guide, great company, and great wine! Would definitely recommend.
