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

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Select tour language
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).

Lots of fun, well organised, nice staff. Trailhopper lets you plan your day, decide which wineries you want to go to and where you would like to stop for lunch. Much better than being on a big coach.
