So glad you asked! Hop On Hop Off is a unique tour format where you and your group travel independently from the other groups on the bus. In fact we encourage each group to disburse throughout the region so we don’t inundate any one winery with a large group of un-booked guests.

Essentially our bus follows a recurring timetable circuit comprising of 10-14 venues that it visits every hour. You are free to hop on or off at any of the stops, knowing from the timetable when we’ll be back to collect you and take you to your next stop.

It’s not a guided tour and we’re not there to tell you where to go and how long to spend there. With the info we provide in the Info-Packs for each region, liberal use of the internet and your own sparkling ingenuity, we’ve left it to you to plan your day. Enjoy!

We now have 2 buses going out so we visit 2 regions per day from Thursdays to Mondays. From January 8th 2017, our itinerary is:

For the available dates for each region, please see the individual tours pages.

Our fares are determined by 2 factors: 1) the region you are touring, and 2) where you start/end your tour.

For instance, our standard City-return fares (departing the Stamford Plaza Hotel @ 150 North Tce) are:

These standard fares can be easily booked online via this website.

If you wish to embark/disembark from another CBD hotel, add $10pp (phone booking essential – 8271 4485).

If embarking/disembarking within the region (ie you’re staying somewhere local), then the ‘Region Only’ fare is for you and costs $39.95pp in all 3 regions (phone bookings essential – 8271 4485).

For your convenience we offer several fare types:

  • Return Fare Departing from Adelaide City $49.95pp – $59.95pp (book online)
  • ‘Region Only’ Fare – hop all day only within the region $39.95pp (phone to book)

Yes, our ‘Region Only’ fare type allows you to embark anywhere within the region itself and at $39.95pp  is a bit cheaper than the Return Fare to and From Adelaide CBD . Region Only fares require bookings by phone – 8271 4485.

For any cancellations 48 hours’ prior a full credit/transfer will be given for another preferred tour date.

Regrettably, no refunds or discounts given for non-attendees or change of mind – transfer to another day may be accepted with prior approval by management if notice given.

We use Toyota Coasters – a comfortable, 21 Seat bus equipped with air-conditioning and tinted windows.

Our buses follow a strict timetable for that circuit. You can view and download the Info-Packs for your tour here, plus we’ll include a link to download it with your ticket confirmation email. There’s also printed copies available on the bus.

Yes, we accept credit card ticket purchases onboard. However to ensure we have capacity prior bookings by phone are essential – 8271 4485.

No problem! We don’t actually need you to present your ticket as we have all bookings on the manifest.

Our circuits offer a range of eating options for all budgets, tastes and dietary needs. Check the destinations we visit for more details on the eating options available.

Our tours are full of wonderful scenery, amazing food options, chocolate and cheese tasting, historical sites, wineries, breweries and regional town centres. We believe our service will appeal to almost everyone. For more details on where we visit, check our Destinations page.

Departing from the city, we collect from the Stamford Plaza Hotel at 150 North Tce. Within the region, you are also welcome to embark from any of the established stops along our circuit within the region (phone bookings essential – 8271 4485).

Unfortunately due to the very tight timings involved we are not able to pick up guests from their specific accommodation, and instead require all guests to meet at the central CBD departure location of the Stamford Plaza Hotel (150 North Tce).

Within each region, we can only let visitors embark and disembark at the pre-determined stops along the circuit.

For groups of 6 or more bookings in advance are essential via our website or phone – ph +618 8271 4485 / info@trailhopper.com.au

Most wineries require that groups of 6 or more require prior booking in advance or they may decline entry/service. Therefore for groups of 6 or more, Trail Hopper requires that the group liaise directly with the wineries they wish to visit to book in tastings. Trail Hopper Pty Ltd makes no guarantee that the desired wineries will have availability on the day.
