    Relaxing Paddle Boat River Cruise & day out

    First things first for a totally relaxing and flexible day. Great views with the guide giving great updates of the area and of Adelaide. These included Castles, Mt Lofty House, Thorngrove Manor and the Bridgewater Mill Waterhweel. Short stop at Beerenberg Farm also. Then off to Murray Bridge and onto the Captain Proud for the lunch cruise. The captain also gave an informative commentary as we traveled along the river. After lunch,Historic German Village of Hahndorf. Plenty to offer here with Udder Delights Cheese and a Chocolate and Wine Experience at Hahndorf Hill Winery, then time to meander around the village. Overall we were giving a great relaxing day and very highly recommended.

    We had a a wonderful day with Roger. We had already visited a couple of the sights on the tour so he altered the tour. He was very knowledgable about hte area. Would highly recommend this company for a tour - Ambler Touring

    Very pleasurable tour

    We took the tour in the off season (June) and were pleasantly surprised to be collected in a Lexus, not a bus, because my wife and I were the only ones to book that day. The tour operator and driver, Allan, ran the tour for us anyway. He was very friendly and immediately customised the tour route for us, basically taking us off the beaten track and through some interesting back blocks. He showed us through parts of Adelaide, the Adelaide hills, Mt Lofty and the botanic gardens before heading out to Murray Bridge via Hahndorf. We joined a number of other tourists on the Captain Proud river cruise. This is a very picturesque part of the country and the river tour lasted around 3 hours with the Captain providing a comprehensive narrative on the points of interest. The boat is about 20 metres long, is quite rustic by design (its only 42 years old!) and its quite spacious being on three levels. You are free to access most areas of the boat including the wheel house, with the top level providing the best views. The captain was a very pleasant fellow and will even allow you to take the wheel for pics etc. The boat has a bar service as well as selling coffee/tea. The included lunch is prepared on board offering a number of dishes to choose from. The quality of food is fine and the servings quite large. The barrister/bar attendant was also very pleasant and we were surprised to find this petite lady also acts as chief deck hand and rope handler! After the cruise Allan took us back to Hahndorf for the rest of the day. The village is full of history and is a must do with a large variety of shops and goods. The sweets shop is a highlight selling superb fudges, Polly Waffles and Violet Crumble bars. In all we can recommend the tour. The personalised treatment was a very nice touch – thank you Allan - this was a very enjoyable and pleasant experience.
