What a great way to learn about the stories behind the building facades and monuments. We had walked past many of the buildings with no knowledge of their history. Graeme is a fountain of knowledge and very engaging. An easy walk. Highly recommend.

Graham, our tour guide, was informative, interesting and attentive to the group's interests and questions. I have been to Adelaide many times over the past 25 years, but I still learned a lot about it's history, architecture and culture. Thank you Graham, really enjoyed your tour.

Super knowledgable host - Graeme Flanning will take you down North Terrace where you’ll find most historic buildings of which he can cite the how and when these buildings were all built. By who and then what these buildings were all used for over their time.
Adelaide has a super interesting backstory with lots of integration to create the city we come to visit today. However, I found it sometimes difficult to keep up with all the information Graeme could offer.
Maybe its just that I retain information better when read rather than heard or maybe there was simply too much to share in such a short time frame.

I wouldn’t have minded taking the walk a little further through the city to see more, rather than hearing too much.
I also wish I had been walked through the history of the land’s usage by the Indigenous custodians of the land, but I was informed that it was the Kuarna people, that took care of the land before explorers came to take it away. In my opinion, this information is just as important to share with those visiting as is how the city was drawn up and by who and then how it was named.
On another note, not entirely relevant - I found it quite preposterous that we felt the need to create big shrines for people such as King Edward VII who never even visited Adelaide and yet we can hardly acknowledge the land for what it was before it was all settled into blocks of infrastructure. But that doesn’t speak for the tour itself.
All up, I had a lovely afternoon with Graeme, I only wish I could have better been able to keep up and retain all the information he was able to offer.

Graeme was fantastic! He gave so much detail about the city and its history. Showed me some sites tucked away behind other buildings that I probably would have missed. Definitely a tour worth taking.

What a fabulous two hours. I lived in Adelaide for many years and have returned as a tourist for a week with my husband. We booked this tour to give my husband an appreciation of Adelaide history and architecture. Graeme was so wonderful - knowledgable - insightful and easy to get along with. I enjoyed every part of our time together and learnt so much about Adelaide I did not know. And the buildings were stunning. I would recommend Graeme to ANYONE. Please book. You will not be disappointed.
