“Adelaide, South Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Adelaide is one of Australia's smaller cities making it easy to walk the cbd to experience its world-class shopping, parks, theatres, cinemas, cafes, restaurants, pubs, art gallery, museum and universities. If you don't want to walk there is a (free, solar-powered) bus and a tram that do the city circuit. There are also the free City Cycles and Adelaide is a bike-friendly city. The beaches such as Glenelg or Henley are easy to get to (cycle, tram or bus). If you have a car venture a further south to Brighton, Seacliff or Moana for more pristine waters and fewer people.
There are plenty of hiking trails surrounding the city too - one of the more popular is Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty Summit, a relatively easy hour to hour and a half with the reward of great vistas and good coffee at the top! South Australia's reputation as the "Festival State" is well-deserved too! The BEST time to visit is in late Summer, around February/March when the city is buzzing with the Fringe, Adelaide Festival, Film Festival, Womad (World Music and Dance),Book Week and lots more - the International Cabaret and Guitar festivals and the Festival of the Mind are in Winter. South Australia is also known for its wines, with two major wine regions flanking the city.
Adelaide is small but charming with a buzzing music, arts and cycle scene making it worth a visit.

“Nice drive around the highlights of the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This tour was a whirlwind show and tell, which for some would have been absolutely perfect. The tour guide/driver Marty was brilliant - really funny guy and loved his non-PC sense of humour. The tour was attended by mostly over 70's, so I did feel quite young being in my late 30's. However I had a 1/2 day to get my bearings of the city so thought it would be ideal. I enjoyed the stop off at the chocolate factory (yum) but other than that I probably chose incorrectly. I would recommend this for older travellers who want to see the sights but aren't worried about stopping off to explore or take photos.

“Enjoy Adelaide tour- a must do when in Adelaide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

What a fantastic day tour with the Enjoy Adelaide day mini bus trip! We booked the City highlights for the morning which included a great visit to the quaint village of Hahndorf and the spectacular view from Mt Lofty, as well as an extremely informative commentary by our guide Adrian. In the afternoon we picked up an extra 11 people and headed to the Barossa. Beautiful country, great company, wine tasting, sunshine, a fantastic guide/driver what more could you ask for? Dont go for the big companies when you get such personalized service from the small tour companies at around the same price.
