      Wine-tastic!
      What a fun day!! We loved that we could pick the wineries we wanted to visit, but that Nathan, our driver, was also able to fine tune our visit to ensure that we got the most out of the day. Nathan himself was pure joy and a fountain of knowledge. A wonderful way to spend the day!

      Top day in McLaren Vale
      Fantastic day, our driver Nathan was very enthusiastic and informative, not only about wine, included details about the region plus history of McLaren Vale and Adelaide. Wonderful experience, great wine, people and amazing views of the area. Highly recommend, prefer McLaren Vale than the Barossa.

      Very good value with great guides
      Great service with a fantastic guide. I used trail hopper for the first time as a solo traveller and it was perfect as it allowed me to choose my own stops with enough time at each one. I had Kyle as my guide for the day and he was very helpful in advising which stops were good and even booked some tastings for me along the way. Highly recommend and will certainly use them in the future

      We expected a commentary onboard the coach but there wasnt one. The driver was very friendly and answered questions. Good experience all up. Fabulous scenery, lovely wines. Hahndorf village excellent in Autumn colours

      Fun, enjoyable days out !
      We did Mclaurenvale South and Barossa Valley with trail hopper over two days ! From choosing vineyards to explore the days felt relaxed and we really loved the wineries we went to and sampled great food, wines, cider and gin throughout the day - a mix of all the things we like ! Our guides were amazing and if we had any questions or trouble choosing stops they were there to help ! The best hop on hop off winery tour I have been on personally and will be using these guys again for sure. We had so much fun and lots of laughs were had during the day ! It was a great way to experience these two wine regions and I cannot recommend these guys more !! We felt relaxed even with time limits at the places we visited it still gives you plenty of time to enjoy the places you choose. Thanks for two awesome and memorable days !

      We used Trail Hopper to visit the Adelaide Hills wineries, and chose the option of the pre-selected stops. This took all the fuss out of it and we could just hop on the bus. Great value, easy and informative. Will definitely book again when visiting Adelaide again to visit another wine region

      Fun day in McLaren Vale South without a car
      This is my 5th time now with Trail Hopper! My friends and I was part of the the Saturday 6 April tour in McLaren Vale South which was lead by our friendly and knowledgable drive Nathan (Nate). Nate was easy going and shared great personal insights about the region which was interesting and helped to enhance our experience on the tour. The tour ran right on schedule which was great. We visited 4 cellar doors on this new route and enjoyed the wines, particularly the Grapple wine/cider from Oxenberry and wonderful service at Hastwell & Lightfoot. Overwall, the cellar doors we visited were peaceful and not too overly croweded - great for insta photo opportunities. Looking forward to join Trail Hopper again soon.

      Best wine tour ever
      Couldn’t recommend this tour enough, it was amazing and Yvette was fantastic. Will definitely do it again next time I come to Adelaide. Wineries were amazing and highly recommend the high tea at Red Poles.

      Great way to tour McLaren Vale
      Tour and tour guide were both excellent. We missed out on a more expensive escorted tour of fixed venues and we are very glad about that. This tour offers a choice of venues with an hour at each. My highlight was the brewery (Swell) which was next door to a winery. Pickup and drop off were in Adelaide CBD.

    This is the best way to visit the Barossa Valley. You can sit back and enjoy the scenery, the wine and taste the delicious local produce while Lawrence, our informative driver, kept an excellent schedule enabling us to visit a number of great locations. The selection of wineries to visit was fabulous. Our favourite was Lambert Estate Wines where the wine and food platter were outstanding.
    We highly recommend Hop-on Hop-off Barossa Valley tours.

    Every visitor to Adelaide should treat themselves to the sights, sounds and exceptional tastes to be celebrated within the Barossa Valley. This inventive and exquisitely orchestrated day allows for independent choice of any 4 of the 12 stops, allowing for an hour at each stop, which was a perfect amount of time.

    Yvette, our guide for the day was informative, entertaining, provided expectations with clarity and clearly loves introducing others to the history, charms, wines and unique character that the region has to offer. She exudes a passion for her responsibilities and a refreshing commitment to ensure that each guest has a great experience.

    As someone who owns a restaurant near the Napa Valley, I was blown away by the cost effectiveness of the wine tastings (all between $6 and $14 US Dollars, excluding library tastings) combined with the quality of the experience. We could linger with the expert guidance of each purveyor informing us as to the nuances of each wine.

    From our four choices I highly recommend Rusden as the best wines for the price point with $6.70 US tastings of 6 to 8 wines with credit given for bottles purchased. For us the Chookshed and the Chenin Blanc were both purchase worthy.

    I would also recommend Yolumba, with its rich history, impressive selection of either red flights or white flights.

    You see and experience so much more and receive so much more in value with the experienced, caring, interactive, informative and professional guides from this service. Thank you, Yvette, for an unforgettably amazing journey to, from and through the Barossa Valley.

    This tour was the perfect solution for us. Being based in Adelaide CBD we were picked up from right across the road! The tour guide / driver Nate was just amazing, he stepped us through everything, was helpful and engaging and knew so much about the region and wineries. We ended up having the best day and the flexibility to hop on and hop off at the different stops really suited us. I absolutely recommend this as a great way to experience the Barossa with lots of flexibility. Thank-you !!!

    Hi Jack and Jo here, we are writing on behalf of our whole bus tour because they are lazy, there are 7 of us so you must take this as 7 seperate reviews.

    MONIQUE Is a lovely, happy, friendly tour guide. Like many other reviews we had this as a last option as every other tour was booked out, but we are far from disappointed, what an experience. Highly recommend and is worth your time, the tasting fee’s at each location are minimal and are made up in price difference to the other tours. Monique has an abundance of information and knowledge and will guide you to each place that will best suit you, if not you have free range on choosing what you think will best suit you. Good music, good vibes and many a laughs.

    ILY Monique

    From all 7 of us, Thank you

    (Note to company; this is 7 x reviews, all singular’s combined to one, each dedicated to Monique and her compassion and love towards her job. Team Monique)

    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!

    The hop on and hop off tour is perfect for those who want an easy way around to different wineries without being bound to a strict schedule. This was me and my boyfriend’s first time visiting the Barossa Valley and it allowed us to try different wineries in the region, stop when we wanted to stop at a winery or stay longer when we wanted to! As we were staying in Barossa, the bus was able to pick us up from a convenient location in town. Our tour guide Yvette was so welcoming and accomodating to all the passengers needs.

    As this is transport only, you will need to organise your own wine tastings at each cellar door but this was so easy to do online! The information on the trail hopper website about each winery was helpful for us to choose where we wanted to go as well.

    I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to hit up some wineries without paying for an expensive tour. I would definitely be using them again the next time I visit the Barossa!

    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.

    With a convenient pickup in the Adelaide CBD, and a very reasonable 1 hour trip out, this TrailHopper tour was without a doubt the best introduction to SA's Barossa Valley.
    Our driver/tour guide extraordinaire, was knowledgable and entertaining, making for a cracking day out.

    I can absolutely recommend the Trail Hopper team if you're planning a day out to the Barossa, and I'd absolutely make use of them again!

    If your looking for a tour of the Barossa Valley, this is the one. Nathan was amazing - he provided in depth unbiased information on all wineries, towns, breweries, the farm shop and many jokes and facts along the way. You choose 4/12 stops, so in that way your tour is tailored to what you want. Lovely area to visit, and good company. Would recommend this experience to family and friends.
