Tips-based walking tour

This tour will not be available until further notice.

It’s what we call our Adelaide free walking tour, a 90-minute orientation where you’ll learn about the history and culture of the South Australian capital. See major landmarks including Parliament House and Adelaide Arcade before finishing at the Adelaide Central Market – an essential Adelaide experience.

This Adelaide tour is taken by local guide/Flamboyance Tours owner Katina – she’s a former Topdeck Travel trip leader, having led tours across more than 20 countries in Europe. She’s now back in Adelaide to showcase her home city to the world!

We don’t call it a ‘free walking tour’ as the concept is called elsewhere because it’s a tour of Adelaide based on tips where you name your own price! You don’t pay up front, but tip what you think the tour was worth at the end.

If you’re unsure of how much to tip, consider that we value this tour privately at $30 per person (see below). We suggest that for your guide’s expertise and the time they take to show you around, a minimum tip of AUD$10-15 per person is appropriate. You can read more about this here, or for more information visit our FAQs page.

Flamboyance Tours provides high-quality experiences affordable to any traveller. We have you covered for Adelaide tours – read more on what a tips-based tour is here!

This itinerary is great as a private tour for groups, or travellers wanting an orientation of Adelaide away from the crowds.

"A true Australian walking tour, helping us understand about the different settlements here... I feel like I know this city in a whole different way now."

"Even as a local going to places that I recognise, there's lots of information that I didn't know. It was great to see my own city in a different light and experience life as a tourist here!"
