"Unfortunately the coach was ten minutes late. Not at all normal for Barnes. Charlie the driver was most apologetic as he was not aware of a local road that had been closed for four weeks. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable and was in the right place at the right time to bring us back."

Would they recommend: Yes

"The quality of the coach was excellent as it was brand new. The driver was helpful. We needed 2 coaches and the first one stayed in the area so was easy to get to at the end of the day. However, we were unsure where the second coach was so had to wait with one class which was not very easy and could have been safer. The children had to cross a busy road to get to the second coach - it would have been better if the coach had been waiting in a safer area."

Would they recommend: Yes

"Hi, we are very sorry that the coach in the afternoon picked you up from the wrong side of the road, the information had been passed onto him so I will speak to the driver concerned and let him know the anguish this caused. Thanks, Luke."

"Prompt pickup and helpful driver, Ian. However air conditioning didn't work on the coach and I think the heating must have been on as well as the coach was very hot despite opening the roof hatches."

Would they recommend: Yes

"Hi, we are sorry you experienced his problem. We get all of our air-conditioning systems serviced annually but I'm afraid sometimes these faults still crop up. Our maintenance team are looking at it now and I can only apologise that you have experienced this problem. Thanks, Luke."

"Journey was very comfortable both there and back. The coach wasn't very clean on the way there tables with crumbs/toilet needed wiping but was clean on the way back. But the drivers made up for it they were pleasant, helpful and chatty to our children."

"We had 2 x 53 seat coaches for our trip to Marwell Zoo. One driver, - sorry we didn't get his name - told us at this time that he was really tired as he had been driving til 3 am the previous night. This did not fill us with much confidence! He also, when driving from the school to the main A34 rout to Marwell Zoo, had to ask the teachers on the coach for directions. Apart from this, everything else was fine."

Would they recommend: No

"Hi, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I can assure you the driver had not been out driving until 0300 the previous evening, he had actually finished work at 1800 so sorry for any confusion. the driver should also have prepared his route in advance so I will certainly see the driver regarding this."

"We had an excellent journey to Exbury Gardens and back and our coach driver Keith was friendly and helpful. The coach was a little late but fortunately we weren’t committed to arriving at a particular time and I know the traffic can be unpredictable."

"Excellent service albeit with a problem very near our destination. We were sorted out with a new coach and driver for our return journey. In the end the problem did not impinge significantly with our enjoyment of our day visiting Owlpen Manor."

Would they recommend: Yes
