Can I combine food and drink with sightseeing in Adelaide?
Walking food tours, while focused on a specific area or type of food or wine, will inevitably include some aspects of the guide pointing out architecture, history and culture. See this Ultimate Adelaide & Hahndorf Day Tour which combines sightseeing with a visit to Haigh’s Chocolate Factory or the National Wine Centre.
Is everything included in the price?
Almost all Adelaide food and drink tours include tastings in the price and longer tours often include or give the option to purchase lunch. You’ll always have opportunities to buy extra food and drinks, although it’s not obligatory. The majority of organised Adelaide winery tours include transfers from the city too.
