100’s of Successful Tours!

  • Kim & David are very professional in what they do. They are a friendly & outgoing couple who go out of their way to make your holiday a very enjoyable experience. I have enjoyed my 2 trips with them this year & look forward to more. I can highly recommend their tours.

    Sandra Dudley
  • Kim & Dave are wonderful hosts & go the extra mile to make sure everyone is looked after very well. Dave is an amazing bus driver & seems to be able to negotiate tight spaces & narrow roadways in such a big bus. Was rewarded at the end of the trip with Mum's homemade biscuits. Thoroughly recommended.

    Marina Lee Way
  • Well, what fantastic charter this was we were looked after like king and queens by Kim and David and their little grandson Kody they took us to Tasmania so full of knowledge our gorgeous Kim was and David sure knew how to drive his coach and little Kody so friendly and always there to offer us water or help at drop of a hat. We would highly recommend this family business to anyone who is looking for relaxing holiday, fantastic food, fantastic accommodations and awesome tours...we will be travelling with these guys again .. so to EP Bus Charters fantastic job and credit to you all ๐Ÿ’•Gary and Vicki Anderson

    Vicki Anderson
  • I have travelled with EPBus Charters several times and have always had a great time. David is a great driver, Kim a wonderful hostess and they always have your safety and enjoyment as a priority.

    Betty Coulthard
  • Fantastic holiday. Everyone is friendly and helpful, a great time had by all. Looks like we did a lot of eating. Great food, fantastic accommodation. Excellent tours. Thank you Kim, David and Lilly. Can't wait until August for the next tour. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Colleen Kennett Queensland Tour
  • Hi Kim and David (and Kody, of course) When Judy joined me in retirement we had already decided that we weren't going to sit in front of a television with cans of cheap lager all day.ย  No we wanted to travel, to see countries, their cities and their people, their customs, foods, cultures and compare them with our own. We had already travelled in the U.S and Canada, cruised down the east coast of South America (including 1000 miles up the Amazon to Manaus). Anyway, we've been to many and different countries over the past 25 years and experienced coach and bus tours of varying lengths of time and distance both at home and abroad.
    We are both sure that our 8 day trip with EP Bus Charters was the best so far.ย  The attention to quality in everything, customer topping the list , resulted in an interesting comfortable and exceptionally well organised tour. This resulted in a happy load of customers and combined with an excellent itinerary and your own well developed skills made us feel welcome and cared for at all times. Never have we enjoyed a tour so much, anywhere!ย  So, thats' about it. We would enthusiastically recommend EP Bus Charters as an example of how to run bus tours properly. Thanks again so much for our trip with you and hope we are able to travel with you again.
    All the best for the future,

    David & Judy Morris
  • Fantastic operators. Very knowledgable and informative. Kim is very kind and helpful. This is the only trip I've been on where I haven't constantly had my purse open, as nearly everything has been included in the tour price, which is very rare. I highly recommend EP Bus Charters and will be touring with them at every opportunity.

    Sue Monfries
  • Thank you for the photos and a huge THANKYOU TO YOU BOTH and Lilly for being wonderful hosts. I had such a great time, everything was so enjoyable and memorable. From beginning to the end of trip ... Kim, Your "behind the scenes" was awesome and really appreciated ... David you are a wonderful driver and I felt so safe on the bus ... I know that there are many " challenges" with driving especially such a long distance. Your business is a great credit to you both and a great enjoyment for all who share their " lives" with you on tour. Love Kay.

    Kay
  • Thank you Kim David and Lilly, for a fantastic Canberra tour. what an awesome time. Can't wait for January and Evita. You made us all welcome and looked after our every need. Thank you all Colleen.

    Colleen Kennett
  • My second trip, a wonderful group, had a great time can't say what was the best all so different,ย and amazing. Here's to more trips ahead thanks Kym & David also Lilly.

Cruise Ships Port Lincoln
Believe it or not, right the way through this time I have been busy with requests from our Agents for providing lots of marketing etc for when the Ships return there is no question of if just when.
For now Domestic Cruises will return (within Australia) dates are still to be advised and scheduling more than likely will be in August.
I have a lot of marketing/advertising to do for them, we supply 6 different tours and they all require revamps to the new approach of advertising.
It seems there will be many new and improved ways on the way things are done onboard, and all things to do with, so really it is quite exciting but I will need help from our Tour suppliers and anyone who is willing, to provide the new marketing that has been requested and if anyone has any drone footage or film of Marina, Foreshore, Cruise Ships, Prawn or Tuna Fleet, Farm Beach, Duttonbay Woolshed, Axel Stenross or Boston Bay Winery, Coffin Bay, Almonta Beach, Oysters it would be much appreciated. Dates will be advised as I am advised. Cruise Ships are Good for Pt Lincolnโ€™s economy, we never had any cases of Covid 19 on any of our visiting Ships and they all had sanitisation practices in place.
We have a wonderful Port and the hospitality shown to Cruise guests is wonderful in Port Lincoln, it is a fantastic platform to showcase our region and encourage return visits.
It will be a great day when our first one sails in whenever that may be ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ok seems my brain wonโ€™t knock off until itโ€™s clear! So I just would like to clarify and explain a few things, it will be long winded to cover all areas.

1/ We have liased with SA Health, SATC, Updates from within the Coach Touring industry itself, we are following Government and SA Health directives and with all considerations under directives we can now operate charter services - Day Charters, School excursions and Camps, Weddings, Shuttle and Transfer Services...All of your ground transport needs. All with hand sanitising stations and wipes, not a stipulation but our choice.
Including our Nationwide Touring
Unlimited numbers are now allowed in coaches,buses although we are capping our tours to smaller groups.

On board we have a Hand Sanitising station, Hospital grade wipes (for wiping all touchable surfaces down) extensive First Aid Kit, Many medications (available over the counter-travel sick, Panadol, allergy, anti inflammatory etc)Blood Pressure Machine, Defribulator and Temperature Gun, sick bags.
Beautiful hand crochet woollen blankets in our colours, a few back pillows, bottled water and treats of course!

Australia Wide Touring-
After many cancelled tours we will recommence on July 31-3rd with Murray Princess Cruise,it will be a fabulous relaxing cruise with great food and a great way to ease back into touring. There have been changes to itinerary and theme due to Covid 19.
Sold out at 30

Whales Tour - will definitely run and will be fabulous! Change for our Adelaide guests an extra night in Port Lincoln however I will be adding this as a normal next year as itโ€™s a fabulous addition ๐Ÿ˜Š
Capped at 24

North Qld - will run which I am very happy about, it is capped at
20 but still has availability, it is my pick and I canโ€™t wait. North Qld, warm, incredible itinerary and moving around in a cosy group. There will be red tape that I will deal with regarding border permits but all authorities say we can run.

Kangaroo Island will definitely run.

This is as far as I can go and I will advise of other Tour statuses as I know, flexibility is the key and also know that we will always do whatโ€™s best for our guests.
I am proud to say no one lost any money with us through the hundreds of cancellations that we had in March, either the guest chose to move to another tour or were completely refunded, as we move back into touring our cancellation terms are back in place UNLESS we are locked down or borders close in which case it is out of everyoneโ€™s control, then we would of course do the right thing.
Travel insurance is of course always recommended.

As we move forward we look forward to providing our guests and customers immaculate coaches, friendly and safe service with respect and care.
There are fabulous upcoming tours in the next 12 months, we would love to have you join us and would really appreciate your support โค๏ธ

Hi everyone
Murray Princess Cruise has created some problems for some of our guests, a fitness to travel letter or travel insurance for guests of 80+ is required by Thomas Cook Cruises.
I apologise for the inconvenience and also for the late notification which was not given to me until recently. This is one of the reasons we choose family run businesses where ever we can, as dealing with small business like our own is far more personal and helpful than numerous emails going back and forth with large corporations with no real helpful outcomes. For me it is disappointing for our first tour after many having to be cancelled and it has been extremely stressful. Please remember when you ring me that I am fielding many calls, emails etc for upcoming tours not just one tour, so I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all that is going on. Changes on Murray Princess Cruise are NOT mine, I just have to implement them with you. Please be kind, I am taking a day off today as I find myself asking is it worth all the stress? It is! but now I need time out so that I can function at 100%. We are living in different times and everyone is trying to do their best including myself, understanding and patience would be appreciated.
