Our Story

Fun, quirky, immersive travel.
Enhancing travel experiences with unique authenticity and knowledge.

Flamboyance Tours’ vision is to bring the world’s like-minded travellers together to take part in local, authentic Adelaide experiences with plenty of fun and flair.

Flamboyance Tours began in early 2019 from owner Katina’s desire to bring a real voice to Adelaide past its reputation as the ‘City of Churches’ or ‘Radelaide’, seeing that there were few Adelaide walking tours on offer. Here to inspire and educate, the company focuses on promoting the vibrant capital of South Australia as the emerging Australian force it is.

A born-and-raised Adelaide local, Katina worked three summer and two winter seasons in Europe as a trip leader for multi-award winning youth travel company Topdeck before Flamboyance Tours was born. 

Guiding across more than 20 countries, bringing her experience and expertise back to her home city inspired Flamboyance Tours’ creation and created an opportunity to present Adelaide’s history and culture to all walks of life! You can read more about this on our Media page where Katina’s story has been documented in the press.

Flamboyance Tours continued to operate through the crippling global COVID-19 pandemic, coming out the other side with more tours and a lot more inspiration. Guide Andrea joined in 2023 and together the two create a dynamic team.

A flamboyance of flamingos represents togetherness – Flamboyance Tours strives for fun, quirky and immersive travel to foster a like-minded culture among travellers and the curious at heart. See below for more on our philosophy.

She sees her city as one continuing to surprise.
