There are countless tour companies so what makes Bathurst Tours exceptional? They are very knowledgeable & personable.Nothing is too much trouble. We had a two day wine tour which visited 8 excellent establishments my favourite being Word of Mouth.We were never rushed & the atmosphere was one of joviality. If u want to go with a diligent polished knowledgeable little business who really cares about people's welfare go with these guys & ask for Ian or Allan as your drivers. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. Sharmini Szymansmi

Hi Sharmini, What a stunning review. Thanks you so much. I'm pleased you all enjoyed yourselves seeing some of the regions most beautiful wineries. We have so much to offer out this way and we like to think the drive in the countryside forms part of the wonderful day out. Many Sydneysiders are venturing out to country NSW and I'm pleased you chose to as well. Looking forward to seeing you again. Thanks for choosing Bathurst Tours. Ian Bathurst Tours Detour Adventures

What an amazing company! A group of 10 friends and I booked the half day wine tour to Orange with Ian. Everything from start to finish was great - he was punctual, friendly and a great photographer! Very reasonably priced too. While I know some tour operators get sick of groups of guests, Ian was so hospitable. He chose a great selection of wineries, even in times of Covid where places are booked out. Definitely recommend!

Our guide Ian was absolutely lovely from the moment we made the booking until the end of the tour. Ian was so kind and professional and went out of his way to help us organise our winery tour. The bus we travelled on had an esky and bins for us to drink and snack on, we also had control of the music. I can’t recommend this tour enough!

Ours was a SPECTACULAR private 3-hour tour of Bathurst and surrounds. Customised by Ian, the five of us saw and learned things about this gorgeous part of the world that we never imagined. The magical spring blossoms and sunny weather helped, but it was Ian's vast knowledge and insights that brought Bathurst's history and heritage alive for us. The new Mercedes van was spacious and ultra-comfortable and Ian tailored his commentary around our interests in architecture, history and indigenous heritage. We like to see as much as possible and the tour was the perfect pace with an an ideal mix of walking and driving. Can't recommend Bathurst Tours enough.

Hey Sean, what a stunning review. Thanks so much. I'm really pleased you and the guys enjoyed the tour we created. We laughed and joked our way through the afternoon and I'm glad you all had a good time. Bathurst is a wonderfully historical town with so much to see. There are so many facets, from colonial to Aboriginal heritage and much in between, a vibrant Arts community and of course motor racing and all sorts of sports. Thanks for coming to Bathurst and thanks for choosing Bathurst Tours. We'd love to show you ore of this great city when you visit again. Regards, Ian Bathurst Tours Detour Adventures

Ian arranged a lovely wine tour for our group in Orange. Communication was prompt and helpful, giving us lots of ideas and choices about where to go and what to do. The day went very smoothly with our lovely drive, Linda. Pickups on time and very flexible at each winery, given current covid restrictions on numbers. Would highly recommend using Ian for your next wine tour in the region.
