    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.

    This is the best walk around tour I have done. Graeme was extremely knowledgeable and the information was fascinating and well researched.The humours and interesting anecdotes you introduced to the tour brought the history of the square to life. I can recommend this tour to locals and tourists alike. Thank you Graeme, we will be working through your other tours each time we visit as they also look excellent.

    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.

    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.

    Our tour guide Graeme was interesting and informative. We learnt a great deal about the history of the beautiful old buildings and people in Adelaide’s early history. We also enjoyed the fascinating quirky details of the more colourful characters in history. We highly recommend this tour. It was a very enjoyable two hours.

    Graeme was not only very knowledgeable, he was full of those query little informations about the places and people featured on the tour which you can't get anywhere else. The tour was complete and very interesting. Graeme was easy to talk to and adapted well to us being non English native. Overall a great experience
