Hahndorf is a must visit - only 30 minutes to get there from Adelaide city. Michael our tour guide and driver was an excellent host and shared the history of the area on the tour. Really interesting! The surrounding villages of Hahndorf and Mount Lofty are beautiful too. Would highly recommend Sealink Adelaide Tours.

My friend and I had the pleasure of having the tour to ourselves. It was absolutely great . Very informative, beautiful scenery, lovely guide and very comfortable. I highly recommend, the lunch is so delicious, and It's included In the price. You get plenty of time to explore and there is so much to see in Hahndorf. The wine tasting was great. The chocolate shop is delicious, I so wish I brought more chocolate. We also did a quick whiskey and gin tasting too. I highly recommend, you will feel comfortable, the van is clean and spacious, plenty of cleaning goods if you need. Do yourself a favour and BOOK!!!

Tour Adelaide Hills and Hahndorf

Small Group Adelaide Hills and Hahndorf Hideaway Tour from Adelaide
Good tour to the Adelaide Hills. We went through some pretty towns and in particular Hahndorf which is filled with quaint shops. Our lunch included in the tour was at The German Arms - food and service there was excellent and well worth a visit. We also visited two wineries for wine tasting a chocolate factory and stopped at a lookout spot. Our driver was great and gave us some interesting facts about the region as he drove us around. Scored the trip as Very Good rather then Excellent as we only went to 2 wineries instead of 3 and we missed out on visiting the advertised cheese maker as it was still closed when we got there.
