Driving for Adelaide Winery Tours and Partybuses

All of our guys and girls are part time.  Most have another job, their own business or are semi-retired.  The nature of our work means Saturdays and weekends are the busiest times.  Please take a look around this website, and you will gain a fair understanding of what we offer, and consequently what you need to bring to the table.


Essential – if this is not you, then please don’t apply

All of our women and men love being around people, and enjoy showing off Adelaide and South Australia to tourists from near and afar.  We can relate to everybody, hold an appropriate conversation and share a story.  We have lived in SA for several years and know our way around, are absolutely reliable, honest and accountable.  Our communication skills are second to none.  We take pride in our professional appearance and speech.  We understand that in Adelaide, repeat customers are the be-all and end-all.

Desirable – really, you need to tick most of these boxes

  • IT conversant including email, SMS, internet
  • Previous experience in a range of customer service fields, hospitality, sales, cash handling, tourism
  • Enjoys music and great local food, wine, cider & beer
  • Lives within commuting distance of Thebarton – our home base
  • Non smoker


Full SA truck driver license (MR or larger), Office of Public Transport Accreditation (LP), has an ABN.

Things you DON’T need to begin with

Some of these may surprise you, but some are just not part of what we do, and others are simply processes which can be worked through once we have established that you are the right person for the job – by being on the job.

Not essential are experience in truck or bus driving, alcohol serving, knowing where every winery is, in depth wine and beer knowledge, giving commentary on tourism areas, tourism accreditation or insurance.

Big no-no’s

You would need to fit in with our current team, to adapt yet bring your own personality to enrich the group.  What would that look and feel like?  Here are a few “disqualifying” characteristics:

Don’t bother if you are opinionated, unenthusiastic, have poor time management, are a know-it-all, unwilling to learn, unkempt, inflexible, permanently tuned into WI FM.

Just being honest, trying to save both of us some time.

Our team get it right more often than not, and in Adelaide that is what any business needs to do to thrive - build a following of happy customers. Thank you Jemima for the 5 star review. Custom built tours are our passion, and to have everything come together perfectly on the day is truly rewarding. I especially like your comment about spending more time at each winery to soak up the ambiance. "More" does not always equal better value. Chat soon. Partybus Steve


Hi Tarn,

The birthday tour was amazing! Everyone had the most amazing time, we cannot thank you and Steve enough for organising our day and a massive thanks to Lou our bus driver he was awesome! It was just a truly beautiful day!

1. The process of finding and booking our bus was super easy! I loved that I could just tell you what I wanted and you organised it all for me so beautifully and efficiently!

2. The presentation and service delivery of our chauffeur on the day was awesome! We all loved our bus driver Lou! He was so accommodating and always made sure we were having a good time and on time at each place. He really helped make it a good day!

3. Of the venues visited our favorite was - we actually loved them all! With the perfect weather each was awesome and all had great service and made us feel very welcome!

4. The main reason I booked with Adelaide Winery Tours is because I had heard good reviews from friends and you were more helpful and excited in getting back to me and really made it a truly awesome experience.

5. I would recommend Adelaide Winery Tours to me friends? (Yes, no, comments): Yes I definitely would recommend you! I can’t recommend you guys highly enough! You made the day run so smoothly and I had absolutely no stress I could just sit back and enjoy the day!!!

6. I have the following suggestions: I think if I were to do it again I would like a little more time at each of the venues. We often found by the time we had done the tasting there wasn’t any time to actually sit down and enjoy the winery, have a drink and chat or take photos. Apart from being a little rushed it was truly awesome!! I can’t thank you guys enough for making my 21st so special!!

I’ll definitely be recommending you guys to everyone!
