Low Price Guarantee
This single-city sightseeing tour hits all of Adelaide's highlights, including the North Terrace, St. Peter's Cathedral, and a chocolate tasting at Haigh's Chocolates. Or, opt to upgrade your day's experience with some add-ons: a cruise on the River Torrens and admission to Adelaide Zoo. For travelers with a short time in Adelaide, this excursion includes a diverse combination of activities for a comprehensive city experience.
What to Expect
Begin your tour with convenient hotel pickup, which allows for stress-free door-to-door service. This carefully curated tour of Adelaide's highlights will allow you to see the most important city landmarks in a short amount of time. 
Set out for North Terrace, home to many of Adelaide’s historical landmarks and memorials, and disembark for a stroll down Rundle Mall. Accompanied by your guide’s engaging commentary, visit sites such as St. Peter’s Cathedral and Colonel LIght’s Lookout. Take a break at Haigh’s Chocolates for a sampling accompanied by included coffee or tea, and then move on to other sites such as Montefiore Hill, The Terraces, Parliament House, Hutt Street, Victoria Square, and Trinity Church. End your tour on King William Street; from there you can continue exploring on your own with some pointers from your guide.
Opt to add on the River Torrens cruise that allows you to enjoy city views from the water and see some of the river’s wildlife. For an even more in-depth Australian wildlife experience, add on admission to the Adelaide Zoo as well, including a timed-entry ticket to the very popular panda exhibit, which can sell out if you don’t have tickets in advance. The cruise drops off right at a jetty in front of the zoo.

I’d recommend this if you don’t have much time

I’m only in Adelaide for three days and this tour allows me to have an overview of the city. It’s an easy tour as you don’t have to walk much. If you like outdoor stuff, I think this tour might not suit you. That said,...More

Interesting Tour of central Adelaide

The coach had rather limited leg room for a 1.85m man but this did not really detract from the tour. The driver was a very informative and enthusiastic and clearly knew his subject well. There was adequate time to see the inside of the cathedral...More

The Adelaide coach station is just west of the centre of the city, a short walk from the centre of Victoria square. China Town and the central market are nearby.
