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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
I had a lovely holiday with all you fellow travellers, being a small group we got to know each other very well, even though some of us have known each other for many years but have reconnected! DAVID could make that bus dance and whirled us around all these mountains and corners in an amazing and very reassuring safe fashion. Thanks to you both, we just walked in to pre-arranged venues and received top treatment, with top meals and accommodation. I also liked the way you supported family owned businesses who you returned to. Fully recommended company!
Can recommend EP Bus Charters tours. Kim & David really care for everyone on the tour. Have been with them four times now so that really says something.
