        Excellent Professional Service
        I have used Premium Bus Services on two occasions for transport from Newcastle to Sydney Airport and vice versa. They are reasonably priced, friendly and easy to deal with. We have had both Grahame and Michael as our drivers and both were very professional, courteous and on time. I highly recommend this company and I will definitely use them again and have already recommended them to family and friends.

        Hassle Free
        I used Premium Bus Services for our airport transfers to the Novotel Newcastle . We pre booked our transportation through the website. Premium Bus Services had the driver meet us at the arrivals section at Newcastle airport & she was easy recognisable by the companys smart uniforms our 14 seat transporter bus was a late model & was spotless in appearance. The Bus was children friendly with all the anchor points for child seats The Driver Michelle was very pleasant and a great knowledge of the local area. Overhaul our experience was Hassle free & i highly recommended Premium Bus Services. Hi

      Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
      Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
      When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
      Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

      The whole experience was great - it was a last minute request and Mike from the Newcastle Scenic Explorer was kind enough to take us in and brought us around early morning for the tour. Great service, friendly and accommodating. Thanks!

      We were on a cruise around Australia and Newcastle was a last minute port addition. I booked this private excursion and it was agreed we would be picked up at the dock. Unfortunately, local rules changed & private tour buses could no longer access the dock. We did not get this information but the tour guide was persistent in locating us and thru the kindness of dock volunteers, we connected with the tour guide in town at least an hour late. He ended up giving us a wonderful private tour of a town we knew nothing about.

      I had an incredibly enjoyable time on my tour with the Newcastle Scenic explorer. I found it to be an amazing way to get to see the beautiful city of Newcastle. The driver was super friendly and the minibus was very clean and comfortable. I also found this to have very good value for money. Would highly recommend doing this tour to anyone who is visiting Newcastle.

      This was a wonderful introduction to Newcastle by a local. Mike was incredibly knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. We not only saw all the sights but also the cannon go off at Fort Scratchley which was a bonus. Mike was very interesting about the history of Newcastle and was also great at recommending things for us to do the rest of our stay. I would thoroughly recommend the tour.
