By Laura Bakhtiarian. If you are like me, you would only contemplate joining a tour when overseas… or maybe interstate. For the first time EVER, I went on a tour of the beautiful McLaren Vale region in my home state of South Australia and loved every minute of it! I was lucky enough to join the McLaren Vale and The Cube Experience one day tour with Adelaide Sightseeing for a stunning day out amongst the vineyards. For many of us South Aussies, visiting a region in our picturesque home state is usually just a drive and a day trip away in your own car. Joining the tour gave me a good reason to leave my car at home and learn about the history of South Australia.
