The quintessential Australian Adelaide experience.
Go behind the scenes of the iconic R.M.Williams workshop on an exclusive tour and experience the many processes and the care that each and every pair of RM’s handcrafted leather boots receive. What’s more, is that as a friend of The Tailor, you’ll get to take home your very own pair of R.M.William’s boots – personally fitted!
Your day will begin at 8.15am where your private local guide, Nic, will meet you at your CBD hotel. For all local South Australian visitors and people not staying at a CBD Hotel, please note that the central pick up point for this tour is the Intercontinental Adelaide located on North Terrace at 8.15am.
Nic is an amazing storyteller and his passion and knowledge for South Australian history is beyond inspiring. As your private local guide for the day, Nic will take you through the journey – both old and new, and how each destination arrived to its current state.
To commence the day, you’ll head north of the Adelaide city to the iconic R.M.Williams workshop. In a tour that is exclusive to The Tailor, you’ll learn all the fascinating intricacies and the dedication that goes into every single pair of RMs boots ever made.
Walking the workshop is enough to build up an appetite! A delicious Australian inspired morning tea awaits you in the Boardroom so you can speak about the history and future with the key people at R.M.Williams over a cuppa, delicious damper and array of treats.
Following your tour, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the R.M.Williams Percy Street store and museum. It’s here that you’ll not only have the time to browse through the magnificent array of boots, but you’ll also be personally fitted with your very own pair to take home*.
After your visit to the Percy Street store, your tour will conclude on arrival back to your accommodation or into the Adelaide CBD.
*Only selected styles are included within the package costs. Should you choose a style outside that range, additional costs will occur. Boots are non-transferable.
