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.

For travelers with a short time in Adelaide, this excursion includes a diverse combination of activities for a comprehensive city experience.
  • Comprehensive city sightseeing tour with in-depth guide commentary
  • Torrens River cruise provides scenic riverbank and local wildlife views
  • Add-on Adelaide Zoo admission grants access to the popular panda exhibit

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 Haigh’s Chocolates for a sampling accompanied by included coffee or tea. Then move on to other sites such as Montefiore Hill, The Terraces, Parliament House, 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 Torrens River 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.

City tour was as expected. Adelaide is not a large city but its history is very interesting. We found ourselves listening to the very informative driver/guide. The river cruise was very relaxed and you could do without. The zoo was the highlight for our family.
