Hiring a driver for wine country

Hello,

I will be visiting Australia in November and wanted to ask if anyone has a tip in this direction. We will be spending some time in the wine regions near Adelaide and we do not want to rent a car. We would prefer to hire a car and driver to take us touring and on wine tastings. Don't need a guide just someone who can drive us around for a few days.

Has anyone done this? I cannot seem to find any companies that offer this service in the area excluding tour companies and they are not reasonable.

Suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I don't know of any drivers but you could try contacting the South Australian tourist bureau or the Barossa or Clare Valley tourism. Someone is sure to have a contact.

Can't help with your question but just wanted to say it is great that you are thinking about not wanting to sample some of that fantastic Aussie wine and then drive. Good on you!

Safe and happy travels
