Bunnik Tours offers first-ever Aussie itinerary

Bunnik Tours has launched its first-ever Australian itinerary led by Mr Dennis Bunnik himself.

The new trip will showcase Bunnik’s own backyard – South Australia – starting from September.

“Since the company was founded, we have helped to make travel dreams come true offering tours to incredible overseas destinations,” Bunnik said.

“So, while our wings are clipped, we decided to use this expertise to take our guests to some wonderful Australian locations instead.

“It was really important for us, in creating these domestic itineraries, that we offered something that was still uniquely Bunnik, so I have decided to lead them. What could be more personalised than having an actual Bunnik on a Bunnik tour showcasing the highlights of our wonderful home state?”

The 11-day tour of South Australia will kick off with welcome drinks at Bunnik House in Adelaide, taking travellers behind the scenes to see where the magic happens.

From there, the tour will take in some of the state’s best-known destinations like Kangaroo Island, the Flinders Ranges and the wine-making regions of Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley and the Barossa.

The tour also includes an exclusive visit to the Penfolds Magill Estate, where travellers can tour the old winery and participate in a tasting of renowned Penfolds Grange.

All tour group sizes are no more than 20 travellers with all sightseeing, accommodation and many meals included in the price.
