Read what Des's satisfied customers have to say about us!

Just wanted to let you know that we all had a fabulous day at Mclaren Vale and the whole bus hire experience with Des's has been nothing but perfect! From speaking to you and organising the bus hire to the day itself, everything was flawless. Our driver Steve was professional, friendly, helpful, but most importantly his services were above and beyond. We all had a fantastic time. The whole journey was smooth and it was a fantastic day! I could not have asked for anything better. After this bus hire experience, I won't bother looking at other competitors if I need to hire a bus again. You guys are definitely looking at a repeat customer here. I highly recommend Des's to all my friends. Keep up the fantastic work!!!!! 


Your company is awesome! My dragon boat team traveled from the U.S. to compete at the World Cup Club Crew Championships. We raised funds, practiced at night and broke through ice on the lake. The big morning arrives and we were stood up by the shuttle bus system arranged by the organizers. A panicked call to your company and within 15 minutes we were on our way with your driver, Frank. What a great guy.  What a great company. Thank you so much for getting us to our race in time.


I just wanted to thank Des’s for picking a fantastic driver for our wine tour on Saturday, Nino was the best, he was always on hand to help us in and out of the bus, helped us with our bottles of wine and generally was such a nice guy. Please pass on our thanks to Nino.  With Thanks


Just wanted to let you know we had a fabulous day on our Mclaren vale winery tour Sunday. Everything went very smoothly thanks to Chris our driver. He was friendly, helpful, and accommodating (when some of our party thought we might add in the brewery!) Hopefully you can pass on our feedback to where it counts!  We would certainly recommend your company and use you again.  Regards


Just letting you know how happy i was with your service last week with my golf group.  All pick ups and returns on time, bus was clean, and bus drivers were good. A special mention to George who fitted the group down to a tee and was easy to get a long with.  Very happy with the company and the drivers. well done.  Regards


We returned from an absolutely fantastic wine tour on Thursday. Your organisation was excellent from the start and I'd like to give a special word of thanks to your driver Michael whose outstanding customer service and friendly disposition make him an absolute asset to your company. I look forward to travelling with your company again in the future.  Many thanks

On behalf of our group I would like to let you know how much fun we had on Saturday and Ted our driver was absolutely fantastic.  He was very professional, courteous and friendly at all times and wasn’t one of those drivers that tends to want to be a part of the group.   Having said that though he did join in and made our day totally enjoyable. Please pass this onto him.  Thanks for your help Jess in organising the bus. The minivan was well presented.  We hope to be back again!!  Cheers 


Thank you for all your help to organise a Des’s mini bus for last Saturday 16th August. I wanted to tell you about the outstanding service provided to us by John, the driver we had. He was so patient, obliging and fun and made our day absolutely perfect. We would like to book John again for next year! He was so good. You are lucky to have such a fantastic driver in your company. Please pass on our thanks to John for making our winery tour so wonderful.  Kind regards


You did a job for us, Aberfoyle Park to Coriole Winery and return on Saturday night (30/8). Just a note of thanks, we all thought it was great, the young bloke was a good driver. On time, spotless vehicle, good driver.  Cheers


Just wanted to express my gratitude to all staff involved with organising my McLaren Vale winery tour on the 19th July. The day all went super smoothly and our driver Chris was professional and organised.   Big thanks to Jess for helping to book (at late notice!) some of the wineries we went to - we were welcomed at all wineries!  Thanks again,  


Just a big thank-you for organising our wine tour on Sunday and the recommendations. Can you please pass on a big thank-you on to our bus driver, Sue. She was extremely professional and looked after us very well. You can tell when someone enjoys their job! Sue thank-you for your wonderful hospitality!  I'm sure I will be ringing you again next year Jess as this is a yearly event for us.  Kind Regards


Please accept my thanks for the driver and bus on 27th June for Parkside Primary's Jump Rope Team to visit three other schools. Scott was polite and punctual and if we get another day out I will certainly be in touch.  With thanks


Yesterday I arranged for the hire of a mini bus from you to ferry some interstate staff, including myself, during the day between Adelaide Airport, our office, a funeral and the accompanying wake.  The service provided by your driver, Sue, was first class; it made what could have been an otherwise difficult day seamless and stress free. I did thank Sue when she returned us to the airport at the end of the day and would like management at Des’ to also be aware. Again, many thanks. 


­­­­­­­­­­I just wanted to say that I was most impressed with you guys with our tour on Thursday.  The lady who helped me initially on the phone was great, Jess who set everything up was most helpful and also your driver Michael was excellent. Please pass on my thanks to all. Kind regards 


Des's Minibus took great care of bringing my guests to and from the Wedding. Great Service.

­­­­­­­­­­ I just wanted to let you know that our event over the weekend was such a huge success, and all the participants had a great time – and this was made entirely possible by your staff member/driver John.  We all wanted to pass on our compliments & let it be made known to the company that John is a valuable asset and fantastic representative for your company.  He was fun, courteous & kind and ensured that we all stayed safe and had a great time.  He truly has a fantastic personality well suited to his job.  If ever we need a driver again, we would most definitely like to have John. 


Well all my visitors are gone and I am back at work.  I wanted to thank you again for all your help with my itinerary for last Saturday.  Our bus driver "John" was fantastic.  From the get to the very end when he delivered us back home safely he was absolutely lovely.  Everyone on the bus commented on how nice he was. He gave us a little bit of SA history on the way up that even us locals didn't know.  Everything went to plan and nothing went wrong at all.   John checked on us at each winery and at our lunch to give us a gentle nudge to get back on the bus.  We will book another Des's bus soon and request John to drive us.  Thank you

This is a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed the trip on Saturday and how pleased everyone was with the quality of the vehicle and the service that our driver, Nino, provided.
To say the least we were blown away by his attention to us and how well he looked after us, even down to making sure that we didn’t have to walk more than 2 metres to get in out of the rain at each stop.
Nino’s attention to detail, friendly and courteous service and ready smile contributed greatly to our enjoyment of the day.  Please pass on my thanks and comments.  I will be sure to book your service again the next time that we plan a similar trip.
Kind regards


Helen C (group leader) asked that I send a big thank you to Des’s Minibus for the great service with a special thank you to Abid the driver.  The group appreciated his courtesy, promptness and help during their week in Adelaide.  I realise Claudia has left the company however I also wanted to say how very much I appreciated all her help during our initial discussions and booking of the transfers. Regards


Zoom Photography was a fun way to stretch my creative side and bond with those in my team.  I loved looking at the Barossa through the lens (and with a few glasses of wine).  One of my clients has now also enjoyed the experience in the city of Adelaide with the same fantastic feedback.  What a great experience to pick up a camera again!


Thank you very much for your help with organising our wine tour for the Crush Festival - we had a great day, though it was a little bit too warm and most of us got a bit sunburnt! Your help was much appreciated and the bus driver we had was lovely.

I am writing to commend the honesty and thoughtfulness of Peter, one of your drivers. I dropped my mobile phone on the road in the pick up area at Adelaide Airport. He picked it up and managed to contact me, through my contact lists, and delivered it to my house. Losing my phone would have been incredibly inconvenient. Thank you SO much Peter!

I'd just like to say how impressed I was by your prompt responses to emails, reasonable prices, the reminder phone call and the punctual arrival of the van. A very stress-free experience which allowed us to enjoy our friend's wedding and get home safely. Thank you. Kate

A group of local and interstate friends did a minibus tour with Des’s at McLaren Vale. Thought I would let you know that we had a great day and would like to thank our wonderful driver John. John did a fantastic job, he was fun and informative which made our day even more enjoyable. We will certainly recommend him to our friends.



I just wanted to write to you to let you know that we had a fantastic day today. Thank you so much for your organisation. We really enjoyed the mix of places we went and appreciated that you could get us in at our preferences. A job well done! 
John was a great driver, we always felt safe and he was quite informative as well. Please pass on our thanks. Thank you again. We had a brilliant day.


Adam was our driver for last Sunday and may we say we had a terrific time. Adam was extremely helpful and seemed to know exactly what we wanted taking us to all the places we wanted to see. The bus was very comfortable and putting everything together, if we hear of anyone going to Adelaide who may need your services it would be our pleasure to recommend your company. It was my birthday and it the day quite special. Many thanks.

I forgot to thank you for organizing my Kath and Kim day back in September. Everyone had a really good day and all the wineries loved our costumes and wanted photos for their websites. The driver we had was really good, I can’t remember his name, but he was a school teacher, everybody loved him. My brother had such a good time that he is going through you to organize a mates buck show and I will be in touch when I start organizing my friend's hens Thanks again!


We were all so impressed with all aspects of the charter. Your highly skilled driver Michael had quite extraordinary local knowledge of each of the 3 days of the tour. Both his driver skills and interpersonal skills were exemplary.
