Travelling from Adelaide to the Barossa Valley can be expensive but I was fortunate to discover Trail Hopper tours. If you're an NRMA member you can also get a discount. The tours are an excellent way to visit different wine regions outside of Adelaide with the bus picking you up in Adelaide and then runs on a loop once in the region, in this case the Barossa, visiting different stops. Nathan was our bus driver and quasi tour guide, a very friendly and welcoming person who gave us plenty of info along the way, tips, and suggestions. Thanks so much for looking after us, you were awesome!

There's a timetable to follow so you can plan to spend 4 x 1hr visits at different wineries, or go rogue as I did and catch a taxi to different places not visited on the tour. Being a foodie I visited the Barossa Valley Chocolate Factory, Maggie Beer's Farm House and Eatery, Tanunda and Nurioopta town centers, Steiny's Mettwurst before joining back on the bus for the return trip to Adelaide.

Comfortable air-conditioned bus, water is provided, certainly recommended and you don't need to worry about being a designated driver as it's all taken care of. You can also buy wine along the way and store it on the bus for safe keeping as some people did. Multiple tours booked with the company can also earn discounts like the coffee stamp concept.

This is a well organised trip to some special wineries. You get to chose four places where you’d like to do tastings from a list provided. A small mini bus means you don’t feel crowded. A full day trip.
Make sure you book direct with Trailhoppers and not other companies who’ll advertise this service but take a commission.

We have been on dozens of traditional wine tours in a lot of places around the world. We thought we'd do something different this time in the Barossa and try the Hop on Hop off with Trail Hopper, hoping to spend less time visiting stops that were of little interest to us (i.e. shopping or chocolate factories), and not killing 2 hours at a lunch stop eating pre-selected food. Our pick up was right on schedule, and the bus was quite full. The hour transfer out to Tanunda was well utilized by our very knowledgeable driver and guide, Nathan. He gave us a very thorough run down on how the day worked, what the best options were to utilize our time and how to manage the schedule effectively. Nathan also did a great analysis of the wineries on the list giving us a definite advantage when choosing which places to stop at and what to try and taste at each place.

We opted to maximize the 4 stop schedule and skip lunch (we brought our own with us, to minimize the amount of time we'd be waiting on service). We were blown away by the tastings, the knowledge of the tasting room staff, the wine served, and the overall experiences we had during our stops. Nathan was right on time at every location, I'm not sure how he manages to juggle all of the people in multiple places throughout the day, but it was quite amazing.

I thought we might be treated a bit second class in the tasting rooms, not being part of an organized tour group, but that was not the case at all. In fact being associated with Trail Hopper eliminated the tasting fees and gave us certain discounts at some of the wineries. And because the value of the hop on hop off was so good (especially compared to some of the tours out there), we bought wine at every winery we went to. Spending the money between the service and the product, makes the most sense, and made for a very enjoyable day.

If you're looking for a lovely day around the Barossa wine region, take this tour. You'll have up to four options among many fantastic wineries over the course of the day. Lawrence was our friendly and helpful guide/driver who managed the journeys of all the little groups on his bus flawlessly. We all got on and off the bus wherever we pleased and he was right there to collect us for the next destination on time exactly to the minute, and even kept our purchases organized until we departed at the end of the day. Often the wineries included on bus tours are the lower-end places, but absolutely not the case here. Highly recommend!

A great way to experience the Barossa region for the first time. Our tour guide and driver Michael was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to visit Yalumba, had a lunch with food and wine pairings and visit Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop. Pick and drop off was easy to find in the city and the timetable was easy to follow, very flexible to experience the region in your own way. Highly recommend!

A great way to do a wine tour in a flexible and economical way. For only $80 we could see up to 4 wineries and we could pick from a large list along with the ability to stay longer.

Bus comes around each hour and is spot on time.

I would suggest staying longer at Yalumba as 1 hour was not long enough to see the most magnificent grounds. Especially in autumn.

Bronny our bus operator was great value and knowledgeable.

I would highly recommend this option and I am keen to try the other regions with Trail Hopper. Thanks!

Loved this tour. We had 12 wineries to choose from. We also visited one that was not on the list but one we were really interested to see. Nathan our driver was very knowledgeable and very personable. We visited Rockford, St Hallets, Saltram and Penfolds Providence. Highly recommend each of these wineries. We had lunch at Saltram and had the $39 share menu which included a pizza, salad, chips (could not eat it all) and a dessert. It also included two tastings of wine and from the two tastings you chose which one to have with your meal. This tour is so reasonably priced and it includes pick up from Adelaide and return.

Wonderful Barossa tour. It's really the best way to see Barossa. You can fit probably 4 wineries into one day including lunch. The bus will pick you up and drop you off everywhere. Always on time! And since you're not driving you're free the enjoy the wine at your leisure. Our driver Cherie was friendly and perfect. You really can't go wrong. The price is great and it will get you to and from the wineries of your choice. What's not to like?

An excellent way to spend a day sampling the best the Barossa Valley has to offer- whether you're a seasoned connoisseur on a mission, or a group of merrymakers eager to learn, the team at Trailhopper ensure you make the most of your experience.
Although it certainly pays to plan your stops and book your tastings/lunch reservations beforehand, the team is very accommodating of last minute changes, and general guidance/knowledge of each vineyard's repertoire.
Our busload had a blast with Monique- her pre-tour communication was impeccable, as was her knowledge of the area and enthusiasm and sense of fun.

Awesome Day. Our driver & tour guide Theresa was very knowledgeable and friendly. 3 of us picked 4 wineries with a lunch stop at one of them. Every place we stopped at we absolutely loved. Only tip I’d like to put forward is, if possible, would be to return to same seats you came in on as our group of 3 were split up & seated separately throughout the bus which was a little disappointing as we couldn’t chat on the hour drive back. Not a huge problem but just wanted to point it out as a good idea to mention to the group when they are getting their rundown of the days proceedings 😉
