“ayers house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The tour is a must if one is in adelaide, The guide was fab. As it was a raining day, there were fewer people and i had a tour of the house and history with it. Very informative and interesting.

“personal tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Very interesting. We had a personal tour by one of the volunteers. Gave us insights into the early Adelaide days that you could not find in the regular tour books. Margaret also gave us lots of information on other things to do to enjoy this small friendly city. A must stop!

If you like these sort of things, it will be right up your little alley. Nice old houses - what more could you ask for?

“Time warp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

I didn't visit the modern part of Ayers House but did a tour of the historic house. It was informative, fascinating to go back in time and gave a sense of what life was like back then. Felt in touch with Adelaide's history. Afternoon tea was rather ordinary considering there is a restaurant attached, bit more thought could have been given although the fresh flowers were a nice touch.
