What people are saying about Glenelg

Nikki, Dallas and Russell went far and beyond making sure that I had the best experience at Barossa Valley. They even helped me get my luggage safely stored, since the tour took place the same day I flew back home. Russell commentary was funny, informative and interesting which made the trip really entertaining. Lunch was delicious and the wineries selection accurate. Totally recommend it.

Russell was the most amazing tour guide you could ask for. My partner and I are from Adelaide and did the wine tour last minute as another canceled and it was even better than the other could have been! Lovely servers and venues, and once again Russell is second to none!! ♥️

Had a great day from start to finish. Driver/guide was a great guy/local. Lots of good info and fun facts/chats. Winery's on the list were lovely and enjoyed the lunch too. Would highly recommend this tour!!

Extremely good and our guide Baden was very knowledgeable and funny Because the tour was relatively small, we all became good friends Highly recommend this tour

Our sunset cruise was beautiful the views were amazing, staff were friendly & accommodating.
