Just a quick thank you to "Billy" On 22/11/17. He took a coach load of motor cycle students from New College Durham to the International Motorcycle Show at Birmingham NEC. He got us to our destination and back without fuss in a friendly and sociable manner. Although the weather was very poor with severe warnings, his driving was professional and prompt.

 

Thanks JH and Billy

Can I pass on the following feedback to your managers. We have been so impressed with all of the trips booked with JH Coaches. All the drivers have been so nice and professional. I’ve never seen such well ironed shirts! The coaches are immaculate and the drivers couldn’t do enough for us and the passengers. It’s rare to find such professional company these days.

I was on the Alpha trip to Ilfracombe 2nd-6th August. Your driver, Colin, was absolutely excellent.

I would like to compliment you on the day out to Manchester Media City on Saturday 8th July. The day was very well organised and the venue was a change from  the usual. Also the driver, Billy, was very helpful and pleasant and even went out of his way to explain to BBC staff that one of our members had left her handbag (including ID) at home. So on behalf of all 12 of our U3A members, a big thank you.

I would just like to say how much I enjoyed the trip to the BBC studios in Manchester yesterday. Billy, as ever was in fine form and looked after us very well.

 

This time we were in one of your red buses and I have say its the most comfortable coach journey I have ever had. Unlike the gold coach we used to go the Falkirk the leg room was ample and not at all claustrophobic. First Rate. I hope we always use this coach on any future trips I book.

Dear Sir/Madam After a day trip to bury market I would just like to say what a fantastic day myself and my friend had. Coach was comfortable and all the rest of the passengers were very friendly but I think your driver Billy made the day what a wonderful and happy great personality he has. We have travelled with Billy before he is a breath of fresh air on long journeys and we will be travelling with you again next month hopefully we will get Billy again but no offence to your other drivers im sure they are all as pleasant.

Everything was perfect. DVD Player worked. Eric cleaned the coach meticulously each evening. Litter bags over arms of seats (removed each evening) and never complained about the girls at all. Eric’s contribution to our trip was exceptional. He was pleasant. He was very adaptable regarding the itinerary, and very considerate if weather affected our plans. He was “above and beyond helpful” and nothing was too much trouble. Eric went out of his way to help with our disabled student and we all appreciated this kindness. He helped to give out pack lunches and joined with us for activities – what came across the most was that he enjoyed being with us. Coach drivers are such an important part of a residential trip – Eric helped make our trip a fantastic experience for the girls. Please can we book him again?

Hello, I would just like to say thank you to your company and your excellent driver Billy following our tour to Edinburgh this weekend.

(Booked via SkyHigh Sports) Billy was very helpful and went out of his way to make our trip as safe and enjoyable as possible and was very patient with the group - 36 boys of 11 & 12 years old are not always the quietest but Billy was unflappable.  We will definitely look to use you again next year.

Very happy with the customer service, good communication and introduction. Very good quality coach. Always on time. The driver’s skill and knowledge was exceptional. For example we know how the gear box oil can be used to slow the coach and thus preventing brake fade. Our two buccaneers Captain 'Andy' Blackbeard and long john 'Mickey' have been fantastic addition to the pirate team. They have been involved in all activities and brought a great sense of humour with them. They have definitely earned their stotty cakes and Pease pudding this week.

We would just like to say what a great coach driver we had for our Nursery trip to Gibside yesterday. Denis was lovely and cheerful with the children, helping them on and off the bus and chatting to each one. One child was unwell on board and Denis put her at ease, telling her not to worry and that it could easily be cleaned up (this may not have been the reaction of other drivers from other companies we've used in the past).

 

Thank you Denis, we hope to travel with you again for future trips.

JH Coaches responded promptly to emails, maintained regular contact in the build up to the trip and were professional at all times. The coach was making its first trip and so was in perfect condition. There were no problems with punctuality. This is the sixth time Andy Smith has driven us to France. Andy is very popular with both staff and students and is considered a key member of the exchange team as he is able to relate well to his passengers and get us to our destinations on time. It is a pleasure traveling with Andy. We were once again very impressed with the quality of the service from JH Coaches and look forward to booking further trips in the future.

Just a quick note to thank you for providing us with some great drivers once again. It always helps to make the trip so much easier when the drivers are on board with us and feel part of the trip. Unfortunately this year Kevin lost his bowling crown, unable to find his best form on the night. Richard, however, helped his quiz team to become runners up and was duly pleased with the result. I will be in touch shortly to ask you for some coach prices next year.

I am writing to thank your drivers for their excellent driving and professional service over the past week during our trip to Artesina. Steve, Roger and Eddie (during the leg to Dover) were fantastic and were very welcoming. They really demonstrated a caring approach to our young people and made sure they were safe and well looked after.

 

I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone undertaking a similar trip in the future.

Very Modern facilities - suited the size of the group. Excellent driving in poor weather conditions. Drivers were at our disposal when we needed them. They were very accommodating e.g. DVDs, lights, use of toilet etc.
