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.
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.
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.
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,
fully hosted and wonderful tour
