Golden Rules

Please take a moment to have a look at our Golden Rules to help you to get the most out of your day.

Scenery

Barossa is a beautiful region, with historic villages, vineyards, and farms dotting a patchwork vista. For us, the scenery from within the cellar doors is as impressive as it is from the road, with tasting rooms steeped in history and atmosphere, or newly sited to make the most of stunning surrounds.

Wine

With over 150 wineries, 550 grape growing families and some of the oldest vines in the world, it’s no wonder Barossa Valley Wineries a stands as one of the world’s great wine regions. Barossa Shiraz and Eden Valley Riesling have led the way as regional heroes, with Cabernet Sauvignon, Mataro, Grenache, Semillon, and Fortified wines all contributing to Barossa’s well-earned reputation.

Some Barossa Valley Wineries have requested bookings essentials and also have implemented paid tastings (this is regardless of group size, and whether you’re driving yourself or on TrailHopper). So please know you’ll need to organize your some stops for your group’s day in advance by booking into your desired venues before the tour departs. Our InfoPack contains all you need to know about the venues on this tour and we’re always on hand to help. We know this isn’t ideal, but it’s out of our hands.

The best part is that the wine, the scenery, and the sheer enjoyment of being out on tour with us is as special as always.

We truly hope you’ll come on board soon and support not only our staff and business but those of the awesome venues and regions we visit.

Food

Our trail features a variety of the region’s best offerings – whether it’s Maggie Beer’s must-visit shop, the wood fired pizzas at Saltram, or the various bakeries, cheesemongers, and cafes in Angaston and Tanunda. Alternatively, you could always bring a picnic and relax in the lush gardens of Yalumba.

Freedom

We are honoured to offer you the Barossa Valley as if you were driving yourself. You can join us in the Adelaide CBD or in Tanunda, then hop off and on our trail as you please. Find yourself particularly enjoying a cellar door or need some extra time to process your lunch? Stay there and get on a later bus! With our ever-helpful Info Packs and a bit of planning, it’s easy to Tour Your Way.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of our city location pickups are collected from the Stamford Plaza – 150 North Terrace Adelaide SA 5000
Yes children are welcome onboard, however, please take note of the following:

1 Baby Seats / Boosters – Unfortunately there is no way for guests to bring or install car seats, as there are literally no anchor points. Legally our 20-seat buses are defined as ‘omnibuses’ which are any ‘real’ buses defined as above 13 seats. As such, like a public transport passenger bus or tram, children under 5 would have to ride on their parents at their own risk, and TrailHopper is not legally liable for any child passenger under 16 years old.

2 Prams, Strollers & Luggage – Unfortunately we have no storage space for large items such as prams. Also, due to health and safety regulations, our aisles are officially designated as ‘Emergency Exits’, so unless it is an umbrella pram or item that can fold up be stored under the guests’ own seat then we cannot accept prams onboard.

3 In terms of child fares, children aged 5 or older are charged at the full seat rate. Children under 5 that can ride on their parents laps may travel free of charge.
All of our pickups within the region are at the information centers:

Adelaide Hills Tour: Adelaide Hills Visitor Information Centre 68 Mount Barker Rd, Hahndorf SA 5245

McLaren Vale Tour: McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast Visitor Centre 796 Main Rd, McLaren Vale SA 5171
