Our Drivers: Mick Todd

Comments:  I am the trip leader for a recent trip we had to Normandy (7-11th March).  Michael from your company was the driver.

 

I just wanted to write and thank him for being such an excellent driver.  I have taken over 40 school trips abroad and in my experience Michael was one of the most helpful, considerate, polite drivers, he really is a credit to your company.  It was our first time in Normandy and his knowledge of the area was invaluable.  Indeed, it was my first trip with TravelBound and I am going to try to book again, with a request that Michael accompanies our trip in the future.

 

Many thanks for an excellent service.

Our Drivers: Gordon Foster and Andrew Warnaby

Comments:  Last weekend I had the good fortune to be taken to Normandy in a Jim Hughes Coach, driven by Gordon and Andy and the purpose of this brief note is to make you aware of how well those two performed.

I cannot fault them.  They were prepared to go wherever I asked in difficult conditions, narrow country roads and lanes with high banks and un-predictable traffic: they were always on time, courteous, helpful, interested in what was going on and, in short a definite asset to the tour.  I am most grateful to them both

Just a quick email regards our trip to France last week.  Our driver Kevin was Fab.  Really accomodating and always pleasant.  He even managed to get us home by 6 on the Friday, which was the icing on the cake.  The bus was also superb. I will definitely be recomending your company and hope to be able to use you in the future.
