My name is Robert Sim and I am the Head of Physics at King Edward VIth School in Southampton.

 

I have just been on a school trip to see the total solar eclipse in the Faroe Islands with 12 young students.

 

Whilst on the trip we came across your drivers who were operating some of the shuttle and tour routes whilst on the islands and I would like commend their service, attitude and professionalism.

 

We could always be confident that your drivers would not leave us stranded if there wasn't enough room for our relatively large group of 14.
