Hello Trevor and Joy,
Thank you for an excellent holiday on the Somme.
We thoroughly enjoyed it in every aspect.
The organisation was excellent, hotel top class and in a superb position. Trevor’s driving was superb, Joy’s hostess work could not have been better (even though we declined the sweets and biscuits – no reflection on their provision just that we don’t eat sweet things very much!). Of course Mikes’ guiding took us to all the salient points and without his explanations there would have been much less understanding and appreciation of how the battle was conducted.
It all added up to a top class holiday. It felt more like an invitation to a family gathering than any other holiday we have ever taken.
This was our first holiday with a local coach company. We have lots of experience of the large travel companies’ fly – tour holidays particularly in Italy but also Spain and France with, we must say, variable experiences. After a particularly poor experience last autumn in Italy our thoughts turned to coach holidays from home. We had concerns about quality and, as we mentioned to Joy, we took a weekend break with another company to see what the experience would be like. On the back of that we booked a longer holiday with them to Ireland this September. THEN, we picked up your brochure from somewhere we cannot remember.
As a company you are familiar to us through booking your coaches for our Local History Society on occasions and we have always been very pleased with the quality of the coach and the drivers’ friendly and helpful abilities. Having looked at your brochure the Somme holiday leaped out at us and so we booked.
There are no regrets whatsoever about that. From the minute you pulled up at Mount Street you made us feel at home, even though it was obvious many of our fellow travellers were known to each other and yourselves and who were previous clients of yours. We did not feel out of things at any time as could perhaps have happened and both Trevor and Joy were so welcoming whilst also being most professional. This greatly enhanced the holiday for us.
We have to say that for our future holidays YOUR brochure will be the first we look at, including days out as well. We will certainly wish to book on any further battlefield holidays you arrange as well as other holidays with you as first choice.
Once again thank you so much for a most enjoyable holiday with you.
Our very best wishes
Howard & Jackie
