Humble Beginnings

Let me give you some insights into this business model. I started out in tourism driving coaches back in 2009. A big part of my job was to conduct full commentary day tours to areas like the Blue Mountains, Sydney Sights, Hunter Valley, and beyond. The driving part was relatively easy to pick up. However, the learning for commentary never stops.

It took a few years to feel as if I had a good understanding of how things worked in the day touring circuit and what made a great tour. What I noticed during my time was what customers liked and, more importantly, what they didn’t like. So it got me thinking, what if I were to offer a more personalized service where once you were picked up, you were on tour? Once you were ready to leave a destination, we left. Or if you wanted to spend more time, you could. You had no one else talking over the top of you or your guide, which is common.

The only feasible way this could happen was to provide a private tour where you got what you wanted. You never waited for others, you bypassed destinations you had no interest in. Instead of simply listening to the commentary, you could have an actual conversation.

The perfect solution was to offer guests their vehicle. Having an interest in all things technical, the task was then to develop the concept. The decision, well, that part was easy. The solution needed a lot of development and research on so many levels. But I’m incredibly proud to say we’ve come a long way up until now, and we’ve only just begun.

When you tour with Escape Scenes, it means a great deal more than a simple booking, it’s actually creating a dream. The goal of building a successful private touring company is something we hold dear. Our guests are vital to the success of the business, and as it’s an owner-operated business, you’ll be in good hands. I conduct all of my tours, and knowing who is going to take you adds that personal touch that isn’t always easy to find.

So thank you for stopping by. This is one place where your business is important. Therefore, if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch as it’s my own business, and I receive all your inquiries directly (no call centers).
