Food and drink walking tours of Adelaide are becoming a more and more popular thing to do in the South Australian capital, with the Adelaide Central Markets being a star attraction. (Which, by the way, you’ll need a big appetite for.)

You can also taste your way around Adelaide’s coffee and chocolate venues, breweries, nearby wine regions and more on an organised or self-guided tour. When you’re a stranger to the city, organised tours are the way to go as it’s like having a local friend show you around.

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.
