Hello

I and my friend have just got back this evening from Thursford with Dave driving. I was thoroughly impressed with the whole experience, which includes my first contact on booking to getting dropped off on return to the Sidings in Mansfield Woodhouse. Dave was an excellent host as well as driving and kept us all well informed of the proceedings. For us it was our first experience, coaching and Thursford. It has been truly magical for us and we hope to join you again at a later date.

Having been on your Paris River Cruise I would like to say it was wonderful. Beginning with your driver, the boat food and excursions all good!! I would recommend to others. Thanks for a great holiday.

Just to say what a pleasure it has been to holiday with your company for our first time to Tenby. From when we picked up in Derby to our return the holiday was faultless ans the hotel was of a very high standard. Graham was an excellent driver (tell him so) your efficiency was of very high standard also, and of course the weather was perfect.

On behalf of the committee and menbers of the Floral Art Society who went on the recent outing to Dublin, I would like to thank you for all your help inorganising a wonderful trip. Both of the hotels which were used were very good in all respects, including the accommodation, and having choices at mealtimes. The outing to the Irish Stud had a lukewarm reception to start with, but everyone came away saying what a great morning they had had. Lastly, we must not forget the driver, Trevor, who drove us safely and on time to our various venues. He was always jovial and full of banter, even at six in the morning. We can always vouch for the fact that he is as good a driver in reverse as in forward gears. All in all we had a very enjoyable five days in Dublin.

Top marks all round. Thanks again.

Dear Diane and staff

Once again i must congratulate on the wonderful New Year trip to Liverpool. The hotel was one of the best. Nicest bedroom i have had. Food good and staff very attentive and they were dressed immaculately. As for the driver Jan Graham - what can I say - super driver - very imformative and always ready with a smile and a willing hand, nothing too much trouble cannot praise him enough. I look forward to my trip to Cornwall in May - its worth the journey I make to travel with your company. Again many thanks.

THIS IS A BIG THANK YOU.

I and 16 friends returned from this holiday yesterday, all ahving had a great time. The coach driver Dave was such a nice chap. He informed us all about the area whilst out on trips, gave clear directions of interest once parked and gave us just the right amount of time at each place. The hotel, Rosemundy House, was so warm and comfortable and the rooms very well appointed. We were made welcome by a lady named Sharon who told us that she is Jack of all trades and this was so. I saw her in numerous places around the hotel, always busy but not too busy to be friendly and chat. In fact all the staff in the bar, dining room and around the hotel were both friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, a varied choice with something for everyone. THE ENTERTAINMENT - We enjoyed all of the three evenings where entertainment was provided. Again I would like to say thank you for a great Turkey & Tinsel holiday.

I am writing on behalf of Concord Youth Music junior section, called the Concord Allstars.

We would like to thank you for your services provided throughout the year (1 coach to each of the 4 competitions we competed in throughout the year), of which I would struggle to find fault.  Your staff and drivers have always been very helpful and polite, courteous and professional. I am also pleased to tell you that our Junior section won the DCUK competition at Widnes this saturday, which was the highlight of the year as you would imagine. We look forward to your continued business and support next year, which we hope will be of the same high level as this year.

I wanted to send a quick e-mail to express how happy we were with the service our tour received this weekend when we travelled to France. Our drivers Mike and Hal were superb, their manner, humour and professionalism were all first class!

It is the first time I have led a group abroad with a disabled passenger and the dignity afforded to her by your drivers was unbeatable.

I don’t know whether Johnson Bros runs any scheme of recognition for drivers and other staff, but if you do, please consider these two gentlemen. They are a credit to your company.  I hope we see them again when we travel with you in the future.

Kind regards,

M Trainer

 

 

Hello

We booked a coach with you to take a Performing Arts trip down to London earlier this week on a 3 day residential.  Could I just say that I think the service you provided for us was fantastic.  The coach was really modern, spacious, clean and comfortable making the journey very enjoyable.  Our driver Steve is an absolute credit to you;  He was so friendly, good natured and went out of his way to help us with our needs, nothing was too much trouble, even when it meant a slight change to the itinerary. I’ve been running the same trip for 13 years now and I know that a helpful and friendly driver, makes life easier for everyone and I can promise that I will book with you again next year and ask for Steve if possible.  Please pass on my thanks to him.

I wanted to pass on my thanks as one of the governors of the Bolsover school and having recently attended the school ski trip whcih returned yesterday.

To the drivers Kieth and Kevin on bus 15JBT,I have done the trip a number of times over the years and these two drivers were outstanding.

The intereaction with the children and staff was brilliant the drivers participated where they could in loading and unloading the coach each day which made things a lot easier for all staff concerned.

The Coach was kept immaculate and was definately the pride of the fleet in the carpark each day,it is the first time I have been where the coach was wash and polished in resort.

I hope we get the opportunity to travel with the same drivers again they were a credit to the company.

If you could pass on my thanks to them both for a brilliant job I would appreciate it.

Kind regards

To whom it may concern I would like you to pass Betty and my thanks to Ben the driver for an excellent trip. He was extremely helpful, amusing and professional and I would like you to pass on our thanks to him for an excellent week.

Yours sincerely

Please could you pass on our thanks to ALL the drivers that have taken DRUFC to our away fixtures this season.  They have all been very supportive and accommodating and this has not gone unnoticed by supporters and players.

We really appreciate this and there is no doubt in my mind that we will be using Johnsons again.

Thank you for a great season 2015 – 2016 and we look forward to using you for 2016 – 2017

Hi I am writing this letter to tell you what a wonderful week in Ireland myself and my aunt have just had and it was all down to the lovely driver Dave that took us all there. Dave was very nice and helpful person nothing was too much for him he was a good laugh and could take a good joke. His driving was wonderful especially having to tolerate some of the streets through Dublin city where there is a lot of road works on due to the new trams that are being put there he amazed us all getting around them with no problem at all. I would be very grateful if you would say a big thankyou to him from both of us for getting us home safe and sound.

Dear All

Having just returned from your excursion to Eastbourne, my wife and i would like to say a big thank you to you all from booking the break to getting off the coach. Everything went smoothly on the trip and the knowledge of Dave our driver was superb, nothing was too much trouble for him, WELL DONE DAVE. The Haddon Hall Hotel was very good with Claire the Manager doing a top job. The restaurant was really good with the food choice and excellent staff, who were very quick and efficient. It is the first time we have travelled with you, but hopefully not the last. Once again many thanks.

Dear sir

We travelled to France last week with your company. We arrived back in Leicester early this morning. I would like to pass on my sincere thanks and congratulations as regards our driver, Lee. He is perfect for trips such as ours. Nothing was too much trouble and he worked very hard to do all he could for us. The coach was at all times immaculate and he was very well prepared and informed. He is a real credit to your company. My thanks again.

 

Dr. A Duffield (Head of Science.)

 

Thank you for today's day trip. I have never been with your company before.

I want to congratulate your Company for its professional service, from the morning's greetings from your staff at your Worksop Depot which I really appreciate as I was a bit nervous on where to park my car and never been to your Depot before, and your friendly driver Keith.

He was excellent throughout, even through the delay on the A1 due to an accident, he kept his cool and was very polite, which on other Coach Companies I have never seen.

I really appreciated him giving us all his mobile phone contact number in case we got lost when going back to the coach on pick up time or  been taken to Hospital. 

I didnt have to use it by the way but it was there if I did which was very useful.

After today I will be coming to you in the future.

Thank you and to Keith

Kind regards Mrs Humphreys

 

 

I just wanted to pass on our thanks for the vintage coach on Friday 22nd July in Bakewell.

The driver was excellent,  calling prior to the time he was due to say that he was already in Bakewell and would be at the rendezvous in plenty of time. His timing, courtesy and pleasant manner was a joy to behold. The day was hot and when he opened the roof it was magical.

The Bedford almost stole the show but that privilege was reserved for the bride. It really made the day complete so thanks once again. I cannot recommend your service highly enough.

Please feel free to use this email on your website as testimony to your great service and wonderful vehicle.

We would like to thank you for the service you gave us last week on our trip to Beamish.   It was first class and the driver, Dave, looked after us very well.   Thanks again.

My family and I have recently returned from Disneyland Paris with my little girls dance group - Gillian Banks. I just wanted to write to you to say what an absolute pleasure it was to be driven to Paris and back by Lee. He was awesome! He looked after us all so well and kept us entertained the whole time. It wasn't easy riding with my 3 year old for all that time but lee made it so much easier for us. I feel that the whole bus felt the same. I felt sad when we came to the end of our journey. I would definitely ride with Johnson brothers tours again if I was guaranteed to have lee as our driver. An absolute credit to your company.

Thanks again.

Miss Richardson and her 3 rowdy kids.

 

Yesterday Saturday the 24 th sept a party of us went on a day trip to Beamish, we had a wonderful day the weather was kind to us and our driver Carl and his lovely wife really made it for us,nothing was to much trouble,Thank you Carl from the Mansfield Woodhouse crew, cheers mate.

D Smith

 

Came back Saturday from Isle of White 8 day tour at the Trouville hotel with your company. I thoroughly enjoyed this and it was made good by your driver Dave. His knowledge of all the places we visited was great. He certainly made this trip pleasurable. He was an excellent driver and very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble for him. This was my first coach tour and if all your coach drivers are as knowledgeable I'll certainly feel at ease on other tours. First class all around. Thank you for a holiday to remember.

C Greenhalgh

 

Just a few lines to say what a lovely day we had to Stratford on one of your coach tours yesterday. Let me say that the coaches are most comfortable, always a friendly driver nice customers  we are booking to go again sometime in the future, well done Johnsons we now have a future without driving all the time.

Mr and Mrs Brown.

 

Just been to Looe with you & would like to say Thanks for a lovely time. The Portbyan hotel is really good. Could not fault it at all. If you use it again we will certainly be going again. Our first but won't be our last holiday with you. Peter our driver was great.

G Stringfellow.

 

I would just like to say, although a Very Moving and Sad, type of trip, we were  on.What a very Enjoyable and Safe journey, we had, Thanks to Mike.   He is such a lovely man, always Smiling, and Very Helpful. And Hope if I ever go on a trip, with your company again, we are lucky enoughto have him, as driver. Please pass on my Thanks, and my Regards to him, also from my cousin Margaret.

While I have the opportunity could I please extend my Thanks to Peter , what a star. the weekend was incredible and he was tireless in helping us when we arrived , loading and unloading of the coach , and just a blooming good all rounder.

On behalf Whitwell Brass Band and of course myself could you please relay our sincere gratitude.

And almost forgot , the whole weekend was such a success that the friendship with Pfungstadt has been sealed and we will return in maybe two or three years time.

Thank you to Lee for the support of Johnsons  and lastly Thank you Sarah for all your help and advice

S Draper 

 

We have used your company for many years now for our group excursions, which are usually twice a year and have always been very happy with your service and drivers. The coaches are always clean and the drivers always pleasant and helpful.

As you are aware we had an excursion to Whitby on Saturday, when we was a bit apprehensive about the weather forecast and it being extremely busy due to the Regatta. We are quite a vulnerable group with some elderly members who have walking difficulties and use walking aids.

However, we had an excellent day with no problems at all, thanks mostly to your very competent driver Peter. From the moment he got on he took care of us, explaining everything to us in a professional but friendly manner, helping everyone on and off without rushing us and as we had a busy baby aboard this time, making sure she was safely in her seat. He did his very best to make sure our trip was safe and enjoyable. Hopefully we will continue with our excursions in the future and use your company and our members have asked if it would be possible, and if Peter agreed, (if he wasn’t fed up of looking after us this time which I wouldn’t blame him!!) we would love to have him again as our driver on future trips.

Please pass on our thanks to him.

I wanted to write to you and let you know about the recent experiences myself and family had whilst on one of your breaks to London and Warner Bros Studio Tour. Over the past couple of years, we have been on quite a few Travelstyle excursions but this one has been the best one yet, largely due to the driver who escorted us on this trip. The driver that took over at Leicester Services was called Dave and was absolutely fantastic. in the past, we have had drivers ranging from been very uninviting and unhelpful, one actually making my niece cry by swearing and attitude to friendly but Dave excelled and I think he deserves to be recognised for his commitment and going beyond his required duties. As soon as we first met him he was very friendly and welcoming, made us all giggle and was perfect with my niece making her forget previous experiences and over the weekend she took quite a shine to him as well. All throughout the trip he was very knowledgeable and helpful and due to his knowledge of the area was able to help maximise the experiences of the areas that we visited and also the time that we had whilst there. I understand that they work to a pre-set itinerary but Dave kept us informed, gave us options and made sure that everyone was happy and comfortable. Ensuring that they were able to get the most out of their excursion. All of my family members think that he is fantastic and hopefully will encounter him on future visits as well. We think by far he is the best driver we have had and deserves a big pat on the back, as he is a credit to Johnson Bros and a great person all round. I hope you will also let Dave know the comments that we have made about him.

Kind Regards

Andrew

 

I’d just like to say a massive thanks to the drivers on out trip to Disney. Andy was super friendly, approachable and nothing was too much trouble. I actually slept on the coach which is a first as I m a nervous passenger but felt very safe with him. We had a fabulous time and will be using you again in the near future.

Thanks, Kristina Gelder

 

My wife and I have just returned from Valkenburg. We enjoyed it that much we shall do it again next year plus other holidays as well. The hotel staff and food was first class. The days out we enjoyed them all. To us the best was Monchau, that town, well we expected goblins and fairies, it was just like a film set. In more ways than one the best thing about the trip was the coach driver, his name was Kevin Hancock, being an ex-driver of coaches and HGV’s I was amazed at his skills. His negotiation of the narrow roundabouts and tight corners was perfect every time. He made us and the other passengers feel safe as well as making us welcome and happy, nothing was too much trouble for him, he was a perfect driver and a gentleman. We would love to have him drive us anywhere

Yours truly

Kind regards,

Hi there Its Glenda from Todwick over 60s, we are looking forward to our trip with you on 8th November to Brigg garden centre. Our members have asked me to contact you to regarding the driver for this outing, on our last outing to Buxton and Castleton on 13th September the driver was Peter and everyone said how good he was, we had a safe and comfortable journey he was friendly polite and courteous, helping people on and off the coach with their shopping as several of our members have mobility problems this was very much appreciated. they have requested that he take us to Brigg if at all possible. As a group, we cannot praise him enough he is an asset to your company.

kind regards

We have just returned from the Austrian Tyrol 7 days’ tour with your company. We had initially booked with National hols but were not disappointed with Johnsons coach replacement. We would just like your employees the 2 Dave's who took us there, to be congratulated on the excellent job they did with our holiday. Great sense of humour included the cheesy jokes and banter. Everyone was made welcomed by them. You do get some complaints from the professional moaners as you do on most coach trips but the professionalism in which these lads dealt with and their courteous manner was to be applauded. In this day and age people are too quick to write in to complain but in this case, it is a positive letter of thanks to these two great guys. Young Dave was also a great echo bingo caller when the German kids got too loud ....So well done to both and we would never hesitate to use your our company again... Just a shame you do not do North East pickups. Please pass on our best wishes and thanks again to them both.

Regards

Many thanks

Just to Say I have come back from a five day tour to Babbacombe, run by Chesterfield Male Voice Choir, organised by travelstyle .. This afternoon 25 Nov 2016. I was pleased to see one of your gleaming pristine coaches turn up take us, I’ve been lucky to go on Johnson Bros coaches before, and note they are usually immaculate condition.. And great drivers .. But this coach and driver was outstanding, Mike, smartly turned out, was caring and interesting, patient totally when we had a very late passenger! nothing too much trouble for him, and we all had a great five days and Mike really made it very special .. He is a brilliant ambassador for your company, I am sure I speak for us all, so please if there are any awards for customer care etc. may Mike be put forward?

Thank you sincerely

Kathryn Evans. (Mrs)

 

Just to say yesterday was our last trip of the year and just wanted to say thank you for all your help this year, every trip we have run has been successful and the standard of the coaches and the drivers have been brilliant, must say that yesterday Lee and Kevin were great. Keith I just wanted you to know that we were very happy with the driver which we had for both of our recent trips. All of the teachers have commented on how friendly and helpful he was - especially with how he handled one of the children being sick! Please thank him again for being so great!

Thank you.

Just arrived back from the tour to I.O.W. and wish to inform you of the excellent service received from your driver,David.He proved to be a great ambassador for your company. His driving was first class and never took chances or startled his passengers.He was polite at all times and kept his passengers fully informed . I have always maintained that it is the coach driver that makes or breaks the holiday, irrespective of the Coach Company.David did a good job for Johnson Bros. Tours. Please convey the sincere thanks from White / Wilkinson group of four for a wonderful holiday.

Yours sincerely
