We had a wonderful trip with Kevin. He is very knowledgeable of Adelaide and Barossa with amusing stories to keep the traveller interested. The tour was professional from beginning to end and we had a great group travelling with us. Probably can do without Wolf Blass and replace with another boutique winery.
Well done . . the tour made our weekend trip to Adelaide thoroughly enjoyable."

"I am very happy to provide feed back from our recent tour. This is the second time I have done this tour, as I enjoyed the experience so much the first time that I wanted to share it with another friend!
This whole experience is really fantastic, the drivers are friendly and very informative, we gained a lot of knowledge about the region. Each winery is different, we get to walk about and see the old vines and hear the amazing stories of how they started.
Maggie Beers Farm stopover was brilliant (we took some good photos there in the kitchen)! The shared lunch was a fun happy experience, and we were provided with the best quality local products. So a very happy customer, and I will return!!
Thank you very much

Our experience was great!! The communication was 'spot on' and the experience was every bit as good as we had hoped! We were treated very well from pick up to drop off point.
We would and already have recommended Australian Explorer. The guide (Gavin) was very knowledgable and was most hospitable and informative. Also each venue that we visited was so welcoming and prepared for our arrival and we agreed that we could only attribute this to your organisational skills and well regarded reputation, as well as the venue's desire to focus on the tourist population.
Many thanks for the amazing insights!! 10/10
