McLaren Vale Hop-On Hop-Off Winery Tour from Adelaide

Likely To Sell Out
Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Join Adelaide’s only hop-on hop-off McLaren Vale winery tour service and depart from the Adelaide CBD or get picked up in the region. A comfortable bus collects from the Stamford Plaza Hotel (Adelaide CBD) at mid-morning, then takes you out to stunning McLaren Vale, to follow a looping circuit featuring 15+ of the best wineries and venues in the area. Each circuit takes approximately 1-hour to complete, giving you plenty of time to sample that venue's offering. Along the way you are free to hop-on or off at any of the selected stops on the timetable. Bus returns to the city in the late afternoon, disembarking at approximately 4:45pm.

    Our comfortable bus collects from a convenient Adelaide CBD location in the morning (the Stamford Plaza Hotel), then once in the region we follow a recurring timetable circuit that takes 50-60 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).

Known for its Shiraz, McLaren Vale also produces Sangiovese, Barbera, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon, and most of the area’s wineries also offer local produce as part of the tasting experience. Located along the Fleurieu coastline, the region offers plenty of scenic vistas, and many of its wineries feature picnic areas and benches for enjoying the views, wine, and food at your own pace. (The cost of the wine and food is not included in the tour price.) At the end of the tour, return to Adelaide.

This is the second time we have been on a Trail Hopper tour. The first, in another state, was by far inferior to this one. Nathan, our driver was fantastic. Informative, chatty, polite and fun, he was the perfect guide. Our tour took us to all the wineries we had hoped to visit
