TRANSPORTATION

 

DO I HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO TAKE A TOUR ON A LAYOVER IN ADELAIDE

To make it on time to join our tours, pick up time at city hotels is between 9:30am and 9:45am. The tour ends around 2:15 PM and you can allow approximately 40 minutes to drive to the airport from the last stop on the tour.

 

HOW CAN I ARRANGE A TOUR FROM THE CRUISE SHIP AT OUTER HARBOUR

Adelaide CBD is a 35 min taxi ride ($52-$72) and can be organised on cruise ship days.  An alternative is to head to the train station approximately 200 metres from the terminal, and catch a train to the city station on North Terrace.  The train departs Outer Harbour train station from 7:30am every half hour and the journey is 40 minutes to Adelaide CBD. Tickets are available at the station,  on board the train or at the city station in either direction.  As most cruise ships arrive early in the morning, a 9:30am pickup in front of the Stamford Plaza - 150 North Terrace, Adelaide is an easy option for our cruise guests.  The Stamford Plaza is located across the street from the Adelaide Train Station.   When booking online please ensure you alert us as being a cruise guest for pickup purposes.

DO YOU ACCOMODATE FOOD ALLERGIES AND SPECIAL DIETS

HOW SAFE IS THE FOOD AND WATER FOR VISITORS FROM OVERSEAS

Health standards in Australia are very high.  All food, beverages and water can be consumed without any concern.

 

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS

 

WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE FOR THE TOURS

The tours are generally casual and the tours include some walking, therefore you will want to make sure you are wearing comfortable shoes. The venues we visit are up market and therefore it would be preferable to avoid running shoes if possible, but not a requirement. The overall dress code would be something akin to smart casual, but as long as you're comfortable, we're happy to have you on our tours.

ARE THERE ANY DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE

We do offer discounts for groups of six passengers or more. If you are a travel agency or are organising a big group tour, please contact us for tailor-made solutions and special rates.
