Clare Valley Wine Tours
Clare Valley Wine Tours specialises in private and bespoke tours around the Clare Valley wine region in South Australia.
We combine the premium food and wine of the Clare Valley with luxury vehicle based tours & guided hiking tours.
The Clare Valley is also on the doorstep of the remote South Australian Outback, for those looking to explore further afield, we offer stunning expedition style tours to the Flinders Ranges & Simpson Desert through our brand Heading Bush Adventures.
All our tours are for small private groups and we offer unique customised experiences.
When travelling in a vehicle we use a Premium late model Toyota Land Cruiser 4WD which is exceptionally comfortable, has great visibility, 4WD for accessing wet vineyards and paddocks, and has plenty of space for boxes of wine & picnic hampers.
Our Clare Valley tours are personalised and very much a ‘local experience’ of the entire Clare Valley. Each experience is unique and Tim the owner will create a bespoke itinerary to suit your needs, tell us your must see wineries and we will put together the rest, want to go beyond cellar door and meet the winemaker, Tim can arrange this, want to taste wine direct from the barrel, no problem, Tim has the contacts for this. Want the finish the day around a campfire yep, he can do this as well.
Whether you are looking for the ultimate wine experience, an epic hiking adventure or a simple private vehicle transfer between cellar doors, we can handle the job.

Clare Valley Wine Tours is owned and operated by Tim & Bianca Grigg who have both lived and worked in the Clare Valley for 16 years. Over this time Tim has been involved in operating tours all over Australia and Bianca has been working locally in the Wine industry.
Until 2020 (Year of the Covid!), our business mainly consisted of operating 2 brands, Kimberley Adventure Tours and Heading Bush Outback Adventures, which are extended overland outback camping tours, we were extremely busy and these products were taking all our time and energy, each was a fantastic product which crossed state borders and were very popular with international travellers.
However, as a result of that pandemic you may have heard about, we quickly discovered that when none of your customers can enter the country and when none of your tours can cross borders, then things tend to slow down a little.
This slower pace was actually welcome and we took the downtime to reinvent the business to a smaller more targeted operation focussed on premium touring experiences, the result was the reinvention of both outback products to small group exclussive tours and the creation of Clare Valley Wine Tours.
Tim guides most of the Clare Valley Tours and has become even more of a wine enthusiast than he was, he loves showing visitors around Clare and can deliver an experience which is so much more than just driving around.
