What our customers say

“Incredibly organised, knew their routes and gave me confidence in knowing we would get there in good time. Both drivers were also very friendly and approachable. It really did make all the difference on such a long trip, to a place I had never been before.”

Natalie Harknett

“Just want to say thank you so much for the coach last night, everything went perfectly. Tony was absolutely brilliant, we couldn’t have asked for a nicer driver. If we ever need a coach again for a social I will come straight to you.”


“Please pass on our thanks once again to Steve who we now call “our driver” for his helpfulness, courtesy and kindness, it makes the day for us. Looking forward to the next trip!”


“Just to say thanks very much for sorting out a coach for my daughter last Thursday. They had a great time and thought the driver was fantastic – it really made their day that he was interested in what they were doing. Will be in touch again if they have any more trips!”

Cassie Cross

“Always willing and helpful and showed real professionalism on the long days around the sometimes difficult terrain on the Somme battlefields. He always amazes us when negotiating difficult situations and shows real empathy with our group and especially with our more elderly group members.

Thank you again for the service you continue to give us and we will definitely be using your company in the future.”

Jon Buoy

“Thank you for supplying a super coach for our journey to Arras France. It is by far the best and most comfortable coach we have been supplied with over the many years (30) that I have been running these tours.”

Jon Nicholls

“I’m more than happy to state how pleased I was with Paul. He is proud of your company, and acted as an advocate for it. Throughout the day, he was polite, timely and delivered us to our destinations on time.”

Matthew Pike

“We had a great day out yesterday.  We particularly appreciated Jamie’s careful driving together with his courtesy and care and attention.  He is real asset and a credit to your company.

If we have an outing next year we would be happy to book him as well as the coach!”


“The driver was excellent and very polite, everyone was really impressed. Hopefully we’ll be able to use your services again in the future.”


“May we pass on our thanks to Jamie for driving us to and from Hayling Island last week.  We experienced a smooth and steady journey both ways making it very comfortable for both staff and children.

Jamie is polite and friendly and very kindly helped us on and off with our bags.  We also appreciated his asking if we were happy to take a slightly different route to avoid heavy traffic.  His driving and pleasant personality made our whole trip more pleasurable experience for which we were most grateful.”

Mrs Elwyn, Mrs Brooker and Mrs Evans

“I just wanted to say thank you to you and your team for helping to make our trip to Dorchester Abbey so memorable yesterday. Jamie was perfectly on time and an excellent coach driver – very polite and friendly too! All in all, with the weather being perfect as well, we had a wonderful day!”


“Just a quick note to praise your driver (sorry I do not know his name but I am sure you do!) for taking our children to and from Glasbury last week. To quote our Head Teacher – He was excellent on the way there… outstanding on the way back. Praise indeed!”
