Carol Criddle wrote: Coach arrived at pick up point in plenty of time. Matthew our driver was smart, friendly, helpful, introduced himself to the coach party and gave relevant instructions for the safety of our journey into London. The actual journey was smooth and we all commented on how safe we felt. Matthew dropped us right outside the theatre which was great as we had several disabled/elderly passengers. He gave clear instructions where he would collect us at the end of the show and was waiting there when we came out of the theatre. Safe return journey. It was so nice to go on a trip and feel confident. The friendliness of the driver definitely makes a nice atmosphere. Thank you Matthew and Horseman's we'll definitely use your coach company again The coach itself was clean and comfortable.

The vehicles have always been clean and comfortable, the drivers helpful and the buses have always been timely. From my personal point of view, the customer service (in particular dealing with Ann Fletcher) has been outstanding from beginning to end in dealing with set-up, payment and cessation of the service. Very prompt, helpful and efficient at all times. Thank you.

When we got underway Alan explained what was happening when we were expecting to get to the ferry. On the ferry he explained the best way to the lounge. When we docked he explained what was happening for the rest of the day until we picked up our tour guide. During the whole holiday he could not have been more helpful. If I were taking a coach holiday again My first request would be to have Alan as our driver. I cannot praise him enough. I was also most impressed with cleanliness of the coach and how comfortable it was.WELL DONE ALAN

Often people put Excellent, but that is what Horseman is in every Department. From booking, helping in times of need, Staff presentation and a Coach that is always Comfortable and Clean. There is never any worries, so as they say satisfaction is guaranteed. We will continue to recommend and also use Horseman we hope for many years to come.

We had several pressing issues which both the office and the drivers worked through professionally and with a smile upon their faces. A specific example includes pushing hours to their limits to fit a return journey to and from Twickenham and London which to the drivers efforts, the group were especially thankful for. We also had some troubles on a return from Oxford, with which the driver took to especially well, all the while keeping the spirits of our passengers nice and high. Never before have I worked with such a pleasant driver. I for one look forward to the next time we will work with Horseman and will be happy to continue to book them for our groups excursions.

Our driver (poor man) Trevor had to deal with 15 slightly tipsy ladies (yearly day out to the races) was absolutely fabulous, telling us jokes and happily listened to the (absolute din, I'm sure) noise we made. I will most certainly be using Horseman Coaches again and have already recommended them to several friends and family members.

We have had various reports to say how good the coach drivers were, how accommodating they were and how friendly, yet professional they were. The children in Year 1 and Year 2 are young enough that a 'unfriendly' coach experience can make them apprehensive to attend a school trip. However Horseman deserve a big pat on the back for taking an interest in the children, greeting them, asking them how the trip was and making their journey to and from the museum a memorable one. One of the children attending the trip with Down Syndrome, has a fascination with the coach, more so than the museum itself! I am told that the driver made his experience a great one!

Two of your coaches and drivers took our year group to the Kingswood centre in Staffordshire on Monday and Friday this past week. First of all, I'd like to apologise for not getting the chance to properly thank your drivers at the time; things were rather hectic on both arrivals. But I would like to say thank you to them both. They were brilliant, helpful and friendly. Being confined to a small space with 50+ children is tough, let alone when you are trying to drive a huge coach! The driver especially on the way back, had to deal with awful weather and traffic, but did so with patience and humour. Please could you pass on my thanks to both of your drivers, the job they did was greatly appreciated by us all.

From the off, Trevor was accommodating and courteous to our needs with professionalism that is unsurpassed. Our trip began with the driver being punctual and smart in appearance. He was very helpful to us even before we set off and we felt he gave a service above the call of duty. His driving was exceptional and everyone felt safe throughout the journey to and from the site. Horsemans should feel proud to have such a professional driver on board their team. The vehicle was clean and comfortable and although the toilet on board was a bit on the small side, everyone who used it, felt it was a necessity and nobody quibbled. We are already planning our next trip, and we will without any exception being using such a professional company. The bonus would be if we could have the same driver too. He was fantastic throughout all the day. Thank you Horsemans for making our day memorable and a special thanks to Trevor and the driver who we had. As darling buds of may would say " Purrfect". :)

There was a year, I think 2006 or so, to save costs as a charity, we used a cheaper company and it was a disaster (I won't go into details). We had to return to Horseman Coaches the following year. Your drivers are good and polite, they know all the short-cuts and how to avoid traffic jam areas, and they are always on time. The coaches are clean and have all amenities needed. Keep up the good work.

Pick up in Brighton needed flexibility due to traffic and parking restrictions. Our driver Trevor was excellent - we coordinated pick-up and he got some very tired riders back to Reading on time with planned drop off's en route.
