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.

Departing: Frances Bardsley Academy

Arriving:Chateau du Moley

 

Our Drivers: Eric Bowerbank

Comments:Everything was perfect. DVD Player worked (very important). Eric cleaned the coach meticulously each evening. Litter bags over arms of seats (removed each evening) provided he didn’t mind crumbs and sand from beach on the floor and never complained about the girls at all.

Eric’s contribution to our trip was exceptional. He was pleasant from the word go and clearly enjoyed being part of our coach/team for the week. He was very adaptable regarding the itinerary/timings, 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 she (and the staff) 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 for the week. Coach drivers are such an important part of a residential trip – Eric helped make our trip a fantastic experience for the girls. He was a delight to work with. Please can we book him for our Normandy trip June 2018.
