Let us take you back

Over the years our group touring department has evolved from simple daytrips to complex tours.

No tour is ever the same and each tour is tailored to the client’s specified requirements. What works for one, does not always work for the other. Seniors and ProBus have specific requirements. Each calendar year, week long tours and overnight tours are arranged custom to request.

The journey from a local’s perspective

A key point-of-difference with our Group Tours and Excursions is that we have specialised local guides with an unparalleled breadth of knowledge and experience.

This make every Popes Timboon journey informative, relevant and, of course, lots of fun.

Take the road to learning and discovery

We have developed strong relationships with all of the local schools that we service. Each respective school employs our service for a wide range of external activities.

Our simple booking procedures and our drivers’ willingness to assist with supervision make it a simple, hassle-free procedure for teaching staff.

Your destination, your journey, your choice

We have a broad range of vehicles that are available for hire drive.

Again we have created a system that allows simple booking and collection procedures for our customers. This has helped in the ongoing development of our client list. Our range of vehicles includes 12, 21 and 24 seat vehicles.

Asset-graphics_07Our Maintenance Management System has been highlighted at state level conventions as the benchmark of industry practice. This system was born out of a simple philosophy: we don’t cut corners


Asset-graphics_16We focus on providing a personable service

Whilst our business is relatively small, it is not without its advantages. An open door policy has existed from inception: the connection from Managing Director to Apprentice is daily and frequent – a flat structure that retains the strong family values that the business was founded on.

Asset-graphics_28Our Transport Safety Philosophy

We are a family run business, if we wouldn’t put our kids on our buses, then why should you?




“Popes Timboon have been taking our families to school from my grandparents through to my own kids.”
