“Way TOO pricey for no added value”
Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

Paid $137 pp for the barossa full day. Due to numbers, got combined with another tour operator. Turned out it is exactly the same tour run by pretty much all other tour companies! The difference? The food! U get supposedly better food
Plus dodgy cake and coffee or tea for breakfast ! Not worth it. Don't be ripped off like we were! Other operators charge $55-99

We are disappointed to hear you did not feel you received value for your money on Gray Line's Grand Barossa Tour.

Gray Line operates our own signature tour to the Barossa every day in our own coach as our itinerary is different and supreme to our competitors with everything included (no hidden extras). There is another tour operator that sometimes puts their people on our coach which may be who you are referring to, but this is ad hoc, so booking with a cheaper operator is a risk you take where you may not receive the quality, safety, service and value adds as you do with Gray Line.

We have a morning tea stop at Lyndoch Bakery - not breakfast - where we offer complimentary coffee or tea and a German sampler plate of sweet treats. It is designed as a morning tea snack, not enough for breakfast, so no doubt you would have still been hungry if you were hoping for a filling breakfast!

We hope you would consider travelling with Gray Line again as we aim to offer the best possible tour and service available.

“nice tour guide but expensive”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

took the half day tour, nice tour guide, leisurely pace but expensive as Adelaide is small and can be explored by oneself

Thank you for your review!
Our Adelaide City Tour is designed as a comprehensive introduction to our lovely city in half a day. We pride ourselves on quality coach captains who have excellent knowledge of Adelaide and South Australia and 5 star coaches. By only being half a day, our customers have their afternoon free to continue their own activities.
Adelaide is easy to get around and our city tour allows you to see the sights and learn about them, in the safety and comfort of a quality 5 star coach.
Kind regards Kelly Driver

“Amazing”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

This tour by Gray Line was made for me by staff at the hotel I was staying at. I can honestly say it was absolutely amazing. The driver has great customer skills, was entertaining, informative and funny. Throwing in the occasional ex-wife and mother in law comment. He picked me up from where I was staying and then dropped me back there after the tour. I thoroughly recomment that if you would like to see the Barossa and all the surrounding towns between there are Adelaide then go with this company.
