Fine as long as you don't mind sharing your day with 50 or 60 other people - and waiting for them, getting used to their voices, their standard of public behaviour, having to stand in a queue because there are so many of you. Post lunch is usually fun on a bus too.
- On a midi-bus for 20 people.
Still some of the same problems as the big buses, but more suited to backpacker jaunts. Basic seating, vinyl floor, hardly adequate air-conditioning and still no privacy. Do you like communal beer-song singing ?
- Converted delivery van, or factory/workshop shuttle.
Ever hit a petrol drum with a hammer? Sounds pretty much like one of these little gems. Deliver machinery parts and parcels as one model and precious human cargo as another model. Still the same suspension, body and vinyl flooring, just a change in cargo and adding 12 very basic seats.
We wouldn't insult you.
There is no way an adult can be comfortable in the third row of one of these. That leaves them as a 3 passenger vehicle, with rugged (unforgiving) 4 wheel drive suspension. Hmmm !
- Luxury model people mover.
In a couple of forms, this is the only way to tour in comfort and privacy. Our vehicles of choice, are the prestige model, Toyota Tarago Ultima (A.K.A. Estima, Previa) They are built to handle like a car and seat like a limo, which means predictable behaviour on the road, in all conditions.
Our cars are also fitted with:
- Leather seats - you DID want luxury didn't you?
- Dual Glass sunroofs
- Satellite Navigation
- Climate control air-conditioning, with separate rear cooler and personal controls
- Audio entertainment system
- DVD video system
- Anti-skid brakes (ABS)
- Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD)
- Brake Assist (BA)
A low centre of gravity and low profile tyres ensure comfort and consistency, while travelling. We limit our tours to 5 people normally, with 6 if YOU want.
The vast majority of Toyota Taragos used by other companies for touring, are the economy model and just NOT a luxury proposition. They have a bench seat second row, to fit more people in AND have cloth seats and no climate control. Have a look at ours, below. We bothered to spend the extra money for your comfort and safety.
Notice we also have privacy glass in our cars
