Luxury travel isn’t cold, it isn’t detached, and it isn’t contrived. At the very heart of luxury travel are real people and true person to person connections with individuals whose identity becomes synonymous with the experience of place.
At The Tailor, we consider our role in this facet of luxury travel of great importance; we match people to people, client to destination, and create unforgettable experiences using our black book of connections as our guide. To us, people are at the centre of each experience and are the secret elixir that enhance and elevate a journey; people are what take a good trip to great. We are continuing to raise the bar year on year and recently launched our own South Australian touring company ‘The Tailor Touring Co.’ which we are excited to share with our clients.
The Tailor Touring Co.
The Tailor Touring Co. is The Tailor’s newest contribution to the world of luxury travel. Having achieved exponential expansion over the past 20 years, The Tailor truly understands how to provide exceptional experiences for discerning clients.
This new venture, driven by passionate South Australian locals, will utilise the incredible depth of knowledge and experience within The Tailor team to bring to life a series of outstanding South Australian adventures. Having built strong relationships with unique and iconic operators all over the state, The Tailor Touring Co. promises to provide unique local insight and quality experiences to guests of all ages. We specialise in using personal connections to provide our clients with exceptional experiences they cannot access through other experience providers.
We have cultivated a number of exclusive opportunities with local South Australia and Australian icons, to provide our clients with an exceptional range of experiences. This includes an incredible private tour of the renowned R.M. Williams factory and the opportunity to be specially fitted for your very own pair of hand-crafted RMs boots; a tour of the wonderful Haigh’s Chocolate Factory, a great experience for the whole family; discovering the beautiful natural products at Sacred Grove; and an incredible day spent in the Barossa Valley with seventh-generation farmers, John and Jan Angas, learning the history of their family and tasting the incredible goods currently produced by the farm.
In addition to our exclusive experiences, The Tailor Touring Co. also has access to private barrel tasting opportunities at a range of premium Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale wineries, and includes a range of exceptional private tours of iconic local establishments; the Jam Factory, South Australian Museum, Adelaide Central Markets and Penfolds Magill Estate. To further enhance our guests’ South Australian journey, The Tailor Touring. Co. has purchased a luxury Mercedes V-Class vehicle to allow for a premium touring experience. By purchasing our own vehicle, we can effortlessly cater for couples, small families and groups looking for a luxurious private tour of South Australian. We are excited to be in operation and cannot wait to promote the outstanding experiences to be found in the beautiful state of South Australia.
As far as South Australian institutions go, they don’t get much more iconic than R.M. Williams boots. Exclusive to The Tailor, go behind the scenes and experience the many processes and care that each pair of RM handcrafted leather boots receive. What’s more, take home a pair of legendary “Craftsman” boots – personally fitted! The boots are handcrafted from a single piece of fine grain leather that’s tough enough to make a long-lasting pair of boots, but soft and supple enough to guarantee comfort and durability. Each hide is carefully examined for premium quality and natural character, and that’s something that can’t be done by a machine. Each boot starts as a piece of the finest quality leather before 80 sets of hands shape it into an Australian icon.
Travelling to the Barossa with your private guide take in the natural beauty of the Adelaide Hills. Imagine tall, slender gumtrees lining the roads and charming hillside towns with views overlooking the vibrant valley. The day would be remiss without tasting your birth year vintage of Tawny direct from the barrel. This unique experience is a lasting legacy from the early Seppelt family founders, ensuring each vintage remains untouched for 100 years. Go behind the scenes to enjoy a range of exclusive seasonal offerings directly from the barrel at Torbreck vineyard. Torbreck is committed to creating exceptional Rhone style red and white wines, reflecting the very best vineyards in the Barossa. Enjoy time out in the vineyard with the winemaker or viticulturist to understand the process from vine to glass plus the soils and viticulture of the Barossa.
