The driver was very knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting facts about the area as we drove through the lovely Adelaide Hills. The Murray Riverboat Tour was truely beautiful - a wonderful experience and a nice lunch was served. After the cruise we spent an hour in Mannum which was not particularly interesting - this is the only negative point about an otherwise excellent tour.
It was the tour guides first day on the job and he came through with flying colours. He was professional, very friendly and most informative on a whole range of topics and interests and made all on board very relaxed and comfortable throughout the days journey. This was our first visit to SA and this tour gave us the opportunity to have a look from a regional aspect to that of the city of Adelaide.
The Murray River is a must see .. I saw it with an awesome height to the river, as it was blackout South Australia and stormy weather time ... glad I got to experience that ... love the old buildings and university ... the buildings are big highrises so nice to be able to get around without being shadowed by the heights of buildings .. everything so close, the Zoo 11 mins walk from the motel, Rundle Mall 7 mins walk from the motel ryc
Despite the storm and the flooding around the Adelaide Hills this trip went ahead. We had an excellent tour guide and had a comfortable coach for our trip. The cruise on the Proud Mary was very enjoyable with a delicious lunch provided. The trip to Mannum and the Murray Bridge was also interesting. Due to the flooding we were unable to go to the Melba Chocolate factory but instead we were taken to look for Koalas, which was a bit of fun. All in all it was an enjoyable day.
Was quite disappointment with this trip. The cruise was meant to be three hours, was only just over 2hours, lunch was nice but adequate, morning tea was plain biscuits thought would be more after most had been on the bus since 8.30. Bus driver was great, gave great commentary and knowledge on the surrounding regions and river.
