Very enjoyable and informative tour led by Ryan. Definitely worth the time, ended up knowing more about Adelaide than some of my (local) friends ;). Ryan is very down to earth and enthusiastic about showing others his city which is great to see.

I took this tour starting from the Taxpayer restaurant and did learn a lot about Adelaide in 2.5 hours. However, the tour felt too scripted, was not very entertaining, with too much emphasis on old buildings. Walking tours I have been on in other cities...More
