Let Des's take you on a public or privately chartered tour to sample some of the award-winning wines that make this region so famous.
With Des's Minibus you can explore the Barossa Valley the way you like. We offer both public tours with set itineraries, which are perfect if you are travelling alone or in small groups, or private charters, where you can arrange your own itinerary for medium to large groups.
Itineraries for our public tours can be found below and are set with a pickup and drop off in the Adelaide CBD. Other travellers will most likely join you, so this is a great way to meet new people!
If you prefer to be picked up from your doorstep and arrange your own itinerary, a private charter will be most suitable for you. Please contact us on 08 8440 1600 or via our booking enquiry form for more information.
The itineraries are subject to change and some inclusions may vary or be replaced without notice.
