Wine Tours From Adelaide
TrailHopper offers Adelaide’s only hop on, hop off wine tour service departing from the CBD and showcasing 3 of South Australia’s finest wine regions – the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, and Hahndorf & Adelaide Hills.
Our philosophy is simple: we aim to make it easy, fun, safe and affordable to visit SA’s outstanding regional destinations. Our full-day tours depart from Adelaide CBD at a reasonable hour (around 10am, depending on the tour), and offer all of the flexibility and enjoyment of driving yourself, without the risks of drink driving or the compromise of having a designated driver.
Best of all, we believe we offer some of the most affordable full-day wine tours around. It will only cost you $49 for a McLaren Vale or Adelaide Hills & Hahndorf tour, and $59 for our Barossa tour!
In a nutshell: Our comfortable bus collects you from a convenient Adelaide CBD location in the morning (the Stamford Plaza Hotel, or your own hotel for a small additional fee), then once in the region we follow a recurring timetable circuit that takes around 60 minutes to complete, in which time we visit all 10-15 of the selected venues. We follow this same timetable each and every hour until it’s time to return to the city in the late afternoon (approx 5pm).
Along the way you are free to hop on or off at any of the established stops, so that in a full day tour you are able to visit up to 4 wineries of your choosing, at your own pace, and independently from the other groups on the bus. Lunch is entirely up to you – you may choose to bring a picnic, book a 5-course degustation lunch, or perhaps a lovely, lazy casual meal amongst the vines. This is how you tour your way!
How to get started:
- Select Your Tour – view our tours and select the one you like on the date you wish to tour.
- Purchase Tickets – it’s best to book in advance via our website. Alternatively we accept credit card payments onboard the bus, which you can join at any of the stops along our circuit (subject to seating availability).
- Tour Your Way! – board the bus at any of the pickup locations described in your ticket. Hop off the bus at any of the stops along the circuit, then hop back on again when you’re ready to move on. Ensure you have booked lunch somewhere or have a plan for where to eat and go from there. It’s that simple.
We believe planning ahead helps enormously to get the most out of your day. To support this we have produced handy info-packs that include your timetable, a short blurb about each destination we visit, and instructions on how best to plan your day:
Hint – we recommend choosing where you want to eat lunch, then working your way outwards from there to make the most of your day!
