An enjoyable journey through Adelaide's early history
TRUDY_H
, Jun 2022
This tour showcased some of the lovely old buildings in Adelaide and provided a very interesting and informative background to Adelaide's history, politics and notable people. Graeme was very knowledgeable and willingly provided the tour even though I was the only customer. He identified and explained many points of interest which I would not have found by myself and inspired me to want to return in the future to be able to explore some of the buildings even further. For anyone interested in the early history of Adelaide and in lovely buildings and architecture I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

This tour was the first tour I booked for my Adelaide holiday and it really was one of the highlights. What stood out the most for me is the professionalism this Guide displayed throughout the tour. You can tell he is not just a hired employee doing a job, he has a real interest in the culture and history of Adelaide and this shines through in his guided tour. He spoke very well regarding his knowledge of the City, and was helpful in explaining all of my questions regarding the sites we visited. I returned to some of the sites on North Terrace a few days after, and was able to appreciate the buildings I had learnt about a few days prior. I recommend this tour 300%.

A very knowledgeable and engaging tour guide. If you are looking for a tour takes you through Adelaide city, then I would recommend this. Timing of the tour was on point, we learnt many different interesting facts. Graeme was exceptionally accomodating and factual, he left us all with a smile. Satisfied with the tour and pricing schedule. Not as much walking as expected so therefore everyone could do it. Would recommend.

Yesterday we went on the walking tour and our guide was Graham. We had a wonderful experience. Graham is passionate about his home town of Adelaide and his knowledge of every area we covered was extraordinary. We found out things, that had we not gone on the tour, we would not have known without Grahams insight. It was also an easy walk so anyone could do it. Well worth it. I will be recommending to my friends when they visit Adelaide. Keep up the good work Graham. thank you Sandra and Kevin

Graeme is an extremely pleasant and knowledge guide. We learnt many things about the history of Adelaide, and saw North Terrace through new eyes after his explanations of the buildings, statues and public art. I would highly recommend this tour to both locals and tourists.

I would highly recommend this walking tour as an orientation to the city of Adelaide. Graham, the guide from Down to Earth tours was very welcoming and he displayed an excellent knowledge of the distinctive history of Adelaide and the cultural district along North Terrace. Even though I was the only participant on this tour, it still operated, which I was grateful for. Jenny

The Cultural Caper Adelaide Walking...
Tracey L
, Sep 2017
The Cultural Caper Adelaide Walking tour was a great way to see some of the history of Adelaide that you might otherwise miss. I greatly appreciated the fact that Graeme continued the tour even though I was the only one booked on the Sunday morning. We had an excellent two hours exploring North Terrace.. Graeme was very knowledgeable and had a folder of images showing the buildings as first built which helped the visitor to appreciate the development of Adelaide since its inception based on utopian ideas. The tour was well paced and there was plenty of time to contemplate the work that had gone into to developing the buildings with the available construction equipment. I came away with a lot of appreciation for the city and the people that have built the city over the years. The Cultural Caper Adelaide Walking Tour is a great experience.
