We were a small group so I was able to hear all the information easily. Graeme, our guide, was very knowledgeable and obviously enjoyed the experience of showing us around. It's a great way to orientate yourself in a new place.

Graham our guide was very informative. I didn't believe we could fill 2 hours just walking around the square but there was so much history and stories about the characters who influenced the development of the city that the time flew by.

I love a good walking tour to get to know the cities I visit and this tour was just right. Graeme has his plan and is very tuned in to his audience based on our questions and energy. This walking tour is just the right pace and although it was just my husband and myself, I would recommend it for many ages and abilities. Looking forward to going to Adelaide again and signing up for some of the other tours Graeme offers.

One of the best walking tours we’ve experienced!

Our tour guide, Graeme, was a wealth of knowledge. It was amazing how he made the historical information so interesting. We started and finished at the Town Hall and literally walked around Victoria Square discussing the notable buildings and statues and the history behind them. Graeme imparted, not only the history of them, but provided us with some hilarious anecdotes along the way. One of the best walking tours we’ve been on.

I learned a lot about the history of Adelaide - the reason I chose this walk. Graeme was very much on top of this - he was enthusiastic, informative and eager to answer my multiple questions. I was the only one at the time but he took his time to show me around. If you interested in history I would recommend this tour. Wish I had more time in Adelaide to have done his other tours as well. Thanks Graeme.

An enlightening tour
John_A

A very enjoyable tour, what a great way to be introduced to Adelade and its history. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a great outline on the historic buildings and the history relating to this city. I found it very interesting and enlightening. I would not have thought to enter by myself some of the buildings that we entered. Especially the building that was the Charles Moores department store, with a remarkable marble staircase, which is now one of the law courts in Adelaide. Our guide, Graham, walked us through the political figures and people who each played a part in establishing and building this city. He spent extra time with our group (of 4) explaining the personalities and peculiarities of each one as well. The tour was not rushed and we walked the tour at our own pace. Also, the tour was not overly long. I highly recommend this tour to others.
