Bronnie our driver was amazing. We had the best day, highly recommend as you can choose which wineries you want to stop at.The McLaren Vale area is beautiful, the wines are top notch matched with Yummy food. Especially recommend Coriole wines, some of the best Reds I have tasted and tasting is free if buy wine. Excellent day out, don't hesitate book trailhopper.

Couldn't recommend this tour enough! This is a perfect service for small groups who are after something a bit more flexible. Myself and 5 other girls were able to visit 3 wineries with tastings at each. We decided not to squeeze in a 4th to allow time for lunch and some gallery viewing at D'arenberg. It is worth booking tastings in advance to fast track the process and stress less (you can also get some sneaky discounts if you mention you're with trail hopper). The timetable was easy to use and thats coming from someone who is hopeless with time management. Big thanks to Nathan for being so helpful, friendly and always rocking up in the bus on time! Can't wait to visit the Barossa with these guys next time.

Highly recommend the McLaren Vale tour. Lawrence was an amazing driver and the whole process was easy from booking with Cherie through to the recommendations of wineries to visit and bookings required. Highly recommend trail hopper and definitely go to Hugh Hamilton winery for the amazing wines and fantastic views could not be happier!

Nathan was great on our hop off trip around McLaren Vale. The bus was comfortable, water was provided, we felt very Covid safe and the commentary was helpful . Nathan was professional, friendly and helpful. The bus was on time at every spot and it’s the best way to see the wine region if you don’t have a sober Bob. We thoroughly recommend it

Yesterday we joined the tour to McLaren Vale and were so glad we did. My wife and I had a great day. We spent 2 hours at d'Arenberg tasting wine, eating at poppies, and viewing the Salvador Dali exhibition. This was followed by a tasting at Coriole and then final stop Chapel Hill for an icon tasting paired with cheeses.
We could not have asked for more. Our driver was friendly and informative, the other people on the tour were fun and interesting and the wine was excellent.
Thanks Trailblazer. We will do this again on our next visit to Adelaide.

My friends and I used Trailhopper tours to visit McLaren Vale and Barossa wineries. Could not have been easier!!! Highlights were having Nathan as our tour guide- knowledgeable, passionate, accomodating and funny! The flexibility of this tour is what sets it apart. You can choose which wineries you want to visit and how long you want to spend at each. Every pickup was on time which ensured we could maximise our drinking/eating time! Can’t wait to come back to Adelaide for another tour!

Great service from the team at Trail Hopper. So many changes were required to our original 2020 booking due to covid border restrictions but the team were super helpful in re-booking and we finally made the tour on 15 Apr. Had a fabulous time

It must be said that we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 wine tours on Feb 29 and Mar 1, 2020. My wife and I are here visiting from Nova Scotia, Canada. Being in Adelaide for only a few days, we figured some wine tasting was in order and the description of the TrailHopper package seemed to provide the flexility that we wanted. The only difficult part of the tours was deciding on the particularly wineries we would visit. We did the McLaren Vale tour on Saturday and Barossa Valley on Sunday.
All of the wineries were excellent but we will give special mention to SC Pannell and Mollydooker Wineries in McLaren Valley and in the Barossa Valley Rusden wines. The staff were particularly friendly and helpful. At Lambert Estate we met and spoke with the owners who were very engaging and w had a lovely cheese/charcuterie board with a couple glasses of wine.
But of equal importance were our wine guides/bus operators. Theresa guided us in McLaren Value while Nathan shepherded us around the Barossa Valley. These people know their way around, offered good background on the history of the regions and their wineries and most of all were just excellent, friendly and helpful people. They made our tours memorable and we are only upset at ourselves that we did not have more time to do another tour to Adelaide Hills.
Our next trip to Australia will see us in Adelaide for a more extended period and likely, a few more wine tours with TrailHopper.
Thanks
