Adelaide Minibus’s sister business is Vin’s Buses.
Vin’s has grown from just a few minibuses a few years ago, to that of a significant South Aussie business, serving the community with a fleet of 30 vehicles, including large coaches. “Whilst seniors and retiree day tours have been a core part of our charter activity, we can now do it better and more professionally says managing director Vin Pistola.
Over 20 new day tour itineraries have been developed and costed, so that seniors clubs, retirement villages, respite groups and PROBUS clubs, can receive a range of them to choose from. It just takes a phone call or e-mail to gain a copy of the brochure and a summary sheet of all of the day tours. “Each have been carefully planned so the day is relaxing , fun and often educational said Vin. Tours can range from a visit to the fabulous Monarto Zoo, to Victor Harbour & the Coorong, through to a day at Gawler and the Barossa Valley. They also include trips to Mintaro/Clare and Banrock Station on the Murray. Then Vins offers a day of entertainment by The Pryers at Mt Compass, a day in the hills including some time at the National Motor Museum, and a day at Old Tailem Town. Others might choose to take a Dolphin Cruise from Port Adelaide, with a stopover at Fort Glanville, or see glassblowing by the amazing Eamonn Vereker, this combined with a visit to Vadoulis Garden Centre at Gawler.
“Our day tours are modest in cost, and deliver great value with most lunch options including both a budget and a higher level menu” he added. Importantly, the Vins day tours are transparently priced, with the customer groups able to access the supplementary tours, such as boat cruises, and lunches, at coach company rates, payable direct to the providers.
Your group gets to enjoy a free morning tea when it can be packed, all part of the great value of Vin’s day tours.
Vin’s tour leader/drivers are specially trained in this type of work. They have a good understanding of the needs of the infirm, and we go to great lengths to ensure all have a great day out. “We have a real empathy for senior’s clubs and understand the needs of the older age groups ” said Vin.
