  • 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.  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.  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!  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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

    Robyn Garvey
  • We had a great time, thanks Kim and Dave. Great itinerary, food, company, accommodation and sights. We were blessed with perfect weather and plenty of whales to see. Bucket list item ticked! Would highly recommend this to anyone at all interested for next year.

    Ann Edwards
  • Awesome trip, so glad to have experienced this well organised adventure with friendly locals. The hospitality along the way from Sheringa, Coorabie Farm to the boat trip and meal at Fowlers Bay and overnight at Ceduna was a credit to them all. A great slice of Australia to visit and the opportunity to do a plane trip over the whales was an unexpected bonus.

    Marie Bell
  • You took us on an unforgettable experience into the Northern Territory with special people to share the many treasures of our heritages and opened our eyes and hearts to all that makes our nation rich and rare, thank you David and Kim.

    Joan Richardson
  • It was the lifetime experience - the Northern Territory adventure. We had the best time and saw so much of this beautiful country we had never seen before! Thanks for the trip to Darwin and back again!

ITINERARY

PS Murray Princess 4 Day Tour

DAY 1

Friday 31st July 2020

Welcome to our 4 day tour to celebrate Christmas in Winter on the picturesque Murray River. Sit back, relax and catch up with old and new friends as we make our way to Mannum to board the Murray Princess! Settling into our twin share outdoor cabins we then begin our cruise, keeping an eye out for the nocturnal wildlife along the riverbank as we reach our overnight mooring in Mundurra.

3 nights aboard the Murray Princess

DAY 2 

Saturday 1st August 2020

Docking in Murray Bridge this morning, you may like to join a guided tour of the town’s historic landmarks and local attractions or go on a wildlife tour at Monarto Zoo (additional cost). Returning to the Murray Princess we find our dining room has been transformed for the special Christmas in Winter themed lunch with all the Christmas trimmings! After a very festive lunch, we continuing cruising upriver to our overnight mooring at Salt Bush Flat; here you may like to inspect the wheelhouse with the Captain before dinner. This evening we enjoy being entertained by the talented crew before returning to our cabins.

DAY 3

Sunday 2nd August 2020

All ashore for the guided nature walk where our guide will share the secrets of the local flora and fauna. It’s a great way to get in a little exercise before the PS Murray Princess departs for the big river gorges and 90 metre cliffs of the upper river. Mid-morning, we join in the Sturt Dining Room for a special presentation on the bounty of food and wine produced in the Riverland’s. We now turn and head downriver to River View Lodge where our discovery vessel awaits. Travelling in small, personalised groups, we explore the maze of the river and the birdlife is amazing. Watch for darters, herons and egrets feeding along the river’s muddy edges. The afternoon offers a choice of bocce or fishing challenges before joining the Captain and Officers for pre-dinner drinks and the Captain’s Dinner and Dance. Dress up and dance the night away!

DAY 4

Monday 3rd August 2020

Returning to Mannum this morning, we reluctantly say farewells before finding that our coach is waiting to meet us to begin our journey home. Once comfortable in our seats we will no doubt begin reflecting on the special moments we have experienced together while cruising along the Murray River. Stopping along the way to purchase lunch, you’ll then arrive home eager to share your everlasting memories with friends and family.
