Although we know Adelaide well we went on this tour as it was gifted to us. The tour was half day of our famous wine region McLaren Vale close to Adelaide CBD. The group were mixed interstaters and two from the USA.
Our guide, Dave, was very knowledgeable and despite being locals and very familiar with the wonderful wineries and beaches nearby, we managed to still learn a lot. We could see that the group was very happy with their excursion and we were taken to just the right amount of places to enjoy but not feel rushed. The value is very good, I think $59.95 per half day with free wine tastings and comfortable travel. Thoroughly recommend.
I really enjoyed our tour of the Barossa with ‘Taste the Barossa’. Convenient pick up from the city, a great host (Mel) and a perfect day. We got to visit a few of my favorite wineries, eat a delicious lunch in Angaston and got a couple of sights in as well. The cheese platter toward the end of the day was a great surprise and much appreciated!
Although I live in Adelaide I will definitely use the convenience of a ‘Taste the Barossa’ tour again next time I want to have a good tasting.
After reading all of the great reviews here, I chartered a private tour with Taste the Barossa for myself and a 7 group of friends and it definitely exceeded our expectations! The team organised a great itinerary – a nice relaxed tour to some boutique and larger scale winerys and an amazing lunch at the roaring 40’s cafe in Angaston. We visited Hemerea Estate, Yalumba and Kalleske Wines, and also managed to squeeze in a beer at a great pub in Tanunda! The staff at all of the winerys were friendly and we never felt pressured to purchase (although, how could we not!). A big shout out to our guide Ash, who was friendly, relaxed and always attentive to our needs. I highly recommend this tour operator to anyone wanting to experience all of the amazing things the Barossa has to offer.
Had a wonderful half day tour with our guide Dave. Great to be looked after by someone who was both knowledgeable and passionate about McLaren Vale and Adelaide in general. Excellent tips about where to go for meals and how to get around a lovely city. We would highly recommend touring with Dave, we would do so again ourselves.
Our tour guide JR loves a yarn, but he was interesting and entertaining from start to finish. We learned a lot about the region. I was particularly impressed by JR’s attentiveness to an older/disabled customer on the tour. Great value and a beautiful place to visit. Happily recommend this firm.
Wanting to take my mum on a holiday to remember. JR was amazing and the trip was spectacular. So good!
Well worth the money. Thanks JR for making it so informative and fun. The wine was great too.

Loved the tour with Dave!! He is funny and informative and all around great guy!! We have had a great time and all the wineries were great and lovely staff! Highly recommended tour
A perfect afternoon checking out some of the lovely South Australian wineries. The day was made much better by our driver/guide Dave who looked after us so well and was also great fun.
We enjoyed the city tour and Handorf the driver JR was very informative and gave us a good insight into the history of the area he was very relaxed and friendly. Handorf is a beautiful village we enjoyed the German quaintness of the town and the lovely shops and eateries.
