Welcome to Michael Boyton's Charter Bus Tours, Hire Services, Winery Tours
Welcome to the website of 'On The Bus'. My name is Michael Boyton and I with my wife Jacqui, are the Owner Operators of 'On The Bus', bus charters and tours. We have many years experience and can provide a wealth of private group transport services with our heritage bus vehicles. We guarantee a comfortable, personal and dedicated service with that extra point of difference.
'On The Bus' is based near Motueka in the beautiful Tasman district close to Nelson City. We can provide private bus charter tours for any occasion, including wine and pub/beer tours to local wineries, craft beer pubs and breweries in the Motueka, Tasman and Nelson areas. The Moutere Hills area in particular is wonderful to tour around, including visits to the premises of the various Moutere Artisans producing premium wine, gourmet food and an eclectic mix of art. 'On The Bus' can arrange charter tours to vineyards such as the Moutere Hills Vineyard and Cafe, Kahurangi Estate and Woollaston Estates who are able to welcome larger groups.
All of our large buses are heritage vehicles over 30 years old and each has its own personality. Seating capacity ranges from 41 to 49 seats between the buses. The fun and nostalgia created by these character buses seems to suit the need and wants of a variety of different functions. "Sabrina" our 1974 AEC Reliance has taken part in weddings, engagement and Christmas parties, private picnics and other functions. "Mary Ann" our 1977 Volvo coach has happily transported groups to Dunedin, Oamaru, Christchurch and the West Coast. We cater for school groups, walking groups, vineyard visits, in fact... just about everything. 'On The Bus' also has a 19 seat de-luxe Nissan Civilian for smaller groups, gatherings or private charters.
