Tour description provided by Viator

Sample the delights of the Barossa Valley on a full-day guided tour from Adelaide that includes two wine tastings, a delicious winery lunch and a visit to Hahndorf. Your knowledgeable guide shares the valley's winemaking history before guided tastings at Jacob’s Creek and Creed Wines. With stops at local landmarks and a scenic route that takes in the River Torrens and Adelaide Hills, your tour provides an in-depth experience of the legendary winemaking region and its environs.

After pickup at your hotel in Adelaide or the Central Bus Station, step aboard your air-conditioned coach and meet your knowledgeable guide.

Start with a drive along a scenic route that follows the River Torrens and winds through the spectacular Torrens Gorge. Pass Kangaroo Creek Reservoir and Millbrooke Reservoir, which provide water to Adelaide, then continue through quaint Williamstown, the southern gateway to the Barossa Valley.

Stop after about an hour on the road at Lyndoch Bakery, where you can snack on a complimentary coffee or tea and a sampler plate of German treats.

Continue into the Barossa Valley to arrive at Jacob’s Creek. Started by an immigrant from Bavaria who planted the valley’s first commercial vineyard in 1847, Jacob’s Creek is now one of Australia’s most famous wineries. Take a walking tour of the Jacob’s Creek display vineyard and learn about its 14 grape varieties, then enjoy a guided tasting of several of the winery’s delicious wines.

Next, drive to the Menglers Hill Lookout to take in amazing views of the valley’s vineyards, hills and farms. Admire huge sculptures made from local marble and granite at the Barossa Sculpture Park located just below the lookout.

Then head to Barossa Chateau, which is surrounded by 22 acres (9 hectares) of rose gardens and more than 30,000 roses. The chateau's grand ballroom features 18th- and 19th-century art and antiquities including an extensive collection of porcelain from important makers like Meissen, Sevres, Worchester, Chelsea and Stinton.

Stroll to the restaurant for a delicious 2-course lunch with the option to purchase wine to accompany your meal. Then visit Creed Wines, also located on the property, to sample some of their fine wines.

Hop back on your coach to travel to Hahndorf, a small town in the Adelaide Hills that is the oldest remaining German settlement in Australia. Stroll under 100-year-old elm and plane trees on the main street and take in the quaint cottages, craft shops and tea rooms of the town.

On your return to Adelaide, pass through the lush Adelaide Hills and villages such as Crafers, Stirling, Aldgate and Bridgewater. After an 8-hour tour, your guide returns you to your Adelaide hotel in the early evening.
