Bob was a fantastic guide, I really learnt so much about Adelaide's colonisation, key historical figures, landmarks and buildings. The tour was well-paced with plenty of variety and a pleasant stop for coffee.

It's a pleasure to introduce visitors to Adelaide's unique history. An interesting connection between South Australia and New Zealand with Edward Gibbon Wakefield being involved in both. Yep, my Italian friends know how to make great coffee!

Bob Brady is a great narrator, very well informed on all aspects of Adelaide's history and gave us a really interesting private guided tour of the city centre over a two hour period. I would highly recommend this tour.
