We have a variety of luxury vehicles to take you tasting. Our primary line of luxury cars suit up to 4 passengers, while comfortable pristine vans can seat up to 8, and we even supply high quality, premium (and best of all comfortable) buses for large groups of up to 24 passengers. All our trips come with complementary water to keep you hydrated while we travel. South Australia’s wine regions are the backyard of Caprice Cars, and with our informative wine tours you are the captain of your expedition. You chose the wineries & food stops, or we can show our favourites (and believe us when we say you’ll understand why they’re our favourites). Just sit back and relax while we do all the hard work of getting you to your destination.

Along the way why not check out the incredible stories of the regions and their history?  We can show you just what our amazing state has to offer in comfort and style all whilst enjoying our friendly service.

Whether you’re keen on experiencing a long lunch, or simply a casual bite, we can show you some of South Australia’s secrets. We will help you find amazing hidden treasures that will give you new experiences and wonderful memories for the years to come. The best part is, there is so much to explore, with every trip you’ll always experience something different.

The fascinating stories you’ll hear as you get to explore are almost as good as the wine. Every tour with Caprice Cars is an incredible experience.
