Edventure Travel - December 2018


We had a really fabulous trip and everything went without a hitch. The girls really enjoyed themselves. Furthermore, Durham City Coaches were fabulous and I can’t praise the driver, Mark enough. He was fabulous. He was really accommodating and we felt totally safe in his hands.

HW - October 2018


Thank you so much for Saturday.  A special thanks to the driver of the '8 seater'

Who after dropping off groom and groomsman returned for the bridesmaids to find the bride and her father stranded after their 'London cab' had broken down!  Luckily there were spare seats and they all went together to Wynyard - the driver dropped everyone off and then 'went around the block' until they were ready for the bride - talk about saving the day!!

We had a wonderful time and it was the talking point of the day.

DL - Anglican Lutheran Society - August 2018

I simply want to thank you for providing the double decker and the coach for the Anglican-Lutheran Society's group last Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday.Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience, especially those from overseas who had never had the opportunity of riding on the top deck of a bus!  Your drivers were both friendly and helpful, but it was Bill who won the hearts of the people.  Please convey our thanks to them both. I am also grateful to you for recommending Jan as a guide.  She introduced me to Graeme who came with us on the Tuesday.  They are both first-rate, and you should have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

Thank you for your help in arranging the outings.  It is much appreciated.
