Every so often an innovative new concept hits the tourism industry that appears so obvious, so necessary that it has the potential to spawn a totally new market sector.
This could well be the case with Julie and Graham Meyer’s 'Chauffeured Motorhomes', especially their ‘Kangaroo Island Ultimate VIP Tour’.
Kangaroo Island is recognized worldwide as a premier tour destination for it’s pristine environment and the opportunity to get up close with nature. "Our tours give guests the time and the flexibility to make the absolute most of their Island visit" Julie said.
The ‘Kangaroo Island Ultimate V.I.P. Tour’ takes guests deep into that environment and even closer to nature on a very personal tour.
Getting to Kangaroo Island with Chauffeured Motorhomes is the first innovation. Guests are picked up in Adelaide in the Motorhome. "They are then aboard their tour bus, their accommodation, their restaurant and their home for the duration of their adventure" Graham said “and bags are only unpacked once into the wardrobes and drawers in the guests on-suite cabin, and there’s no limit on luggage”.
After the drive down the Fleurieu Peninsula and a ferry crossing the accepted modes of touring the Island change.
“We have a basic plan for the tour” Julie said, “but the timetable is very flexible. Guests can stay longer at any attraction, make detours to locations that aren’t on the plan and have as many unscheduled stops as they like. The schedule is more like a drive-yourself holiday." she said.
But the innovation that makes this tour even more unique is the accommodation. “We purchased what we considered the best possible vehicle for V.I.P. touring” Graham said, “it’s a very large luxurious motor home with travel and sleeping for eight, although to ensure ultimate comfort we normally limit our tours to a maximum of 4 guests.”
“At night we ‘camp-out’ in quiet tourist parks and that’s when we sometimes have the most amazing experiences” Julie said, “evening meals joined by wallabies, kangaroos, emus and magpies. Fairy penguins may wander past after dark with the occasional koala, possum, goanna and echidna making a visit.”
The ‘Kangaroo Island Ultimate VIP Tour’ is fully hosted, fully catered and entry to all parks and attractions are included. The guests will normally be friends prior to joining the tour. It's an ideal tour for a couple or small family group. Meals are prepared on board according to dietary requirements. Seniors and guests with mobility issues are catered for, the only criteria is their ability to negotiate the four steps into the motor home. Tours are of 5 days duration and run all year. Other tours are available, check the website.
Operators available for interviews, demonstrations, test rides and media.
Chauffeured Motorhomes provide guests with the best of an organised tour, a resort holiday and a self drive getaway. By utilizing a large comfortable motorhome as the tour vehicle guests only unpack once, the daily ritual of carting baggage and unpacking/packing is gone. The timetable and itinerary is totally flexible and tours are fully catered and hosted, guests just sit back and enjoy the experience. Whilst on tour the Chauffeur and tour guide dedicate themselves to ensuring guests enjoy the most rewarding tour experience possible.
