Our Driver: Billy Golden

My wife and I thought your driver Billy Golden excellent in all respects on the ALFA Holiday to Ennis,  Southern Ireland in the last week in June. He had not been there before, but it was noticeable how conscientiously he prepared his route each evening, and socialised with us all during meal times.

 

He was very popular, and in my Feedback to ALFA said they should certainly use your super coach again, and him as driver.  He always helped the elderly too.

 

My wife and I hope to meet up with him again.

I would like to thank you for your company's logistics and organisation for our trip to Normandy last week (Rushey Mead Academy, Leicester). We had a wonderful trip with no glitches whatsoever.

 

Andy was our driver, and of all the school trips I've been on during my 10 year career, he is easily the best driver I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Please pass on our sincere thanks for his knowledge of the roads on both sides of the Channel, his skill as a driver, his wonderful manner with our students and for his great sense of humour (loved the joke about the Hunchback of Notre Dame's wife)!

 

He is a real gent and such an asset to your company - can we have him again next year!?!?
