Good morning Michael,

I just wanted to drop you a note to say how impressed all our teachers, parents and the staff at Carymoor are with the driver we have had over the past few days. He has been absolutely lovely with adults and children alike, cheerful and professional with a great sense of humour.

Many thanks

Dear Michael,

I travel with your company most weekends to hockey and your staff are excellent. The gentleman who drove us to Taunton last weekend was particularly friendly, I left Exeter at 12 and returned about 4 30.

Hi Ro/ Michael,

Just wanted to say thank you very much to you both and particularly, to Simon. We had another massively successful cricket tour this weekend and will most certainly be coming back for more next year! Simon as usual was incredibly accommodating and we're very grateful to him. I'll contact you with our plans for next year, in the spring of 2019.

Thanks and best wishes,


Geoff Haydon

Dear Jacqui and Michael

I just wanted to say thank you.

I will not be teaching at Exeter School from September. I believe I am retiring, although I think it will take me a while to get used to it!

I have so appreciated all the trips that I have been on with your company. Your drivers have always been very helpful and caring and tolerant. In recent years working with Junior School children I have learnt that younger children can be a bit more of a challenge on journeys. I am particularly grateful, therefore, that your drivers are understanding and patient and seem to take everything in their stride.

Above all I must say I have always felt ‘safe’ on the journey and when you are responsible, as staff, for other people’s children that is very important.

I would also like to thank you both for receiving my ‘bookings’ for school AWAY fixtures and not minding me adding dates, sometimes at short notice, and being able to change timings/adapt to weather problems and put up with cancellations.

Head of Girl's Sport - Exeter School

I am writing to say ,on behalf of the Hardy Plant Somerset Group, how much we have appreciated our driver ‘Steve’ who has driven for us over this past year and before. He has met several problems when out with us , particularly on the M5 on 2nd of May when there was a hold up of at least two hours near junction 27. Not only did he offer coffee/tea and any information he could glean, but he was calm, very cheerful and polite.

Other incidents have included squeezing a large coach through very narrow lanes or gates and between crowded streets of small towns, particularly when brown signs have been turned round!

I know we are a group who choose difficult places to visit, but an expert, cheerful driver gives us confidence and adds to our day, especially mine when leading the trip.

Please pass on our thanks to Steve

Yours sincerely

Janet Murley

I would like to compliment one of your drivers who was on the 9.25 replacement bus service from Exeter to Yeovil today. I was on the coach with two other passengers when a car overturned directly in front of us. Your driver was calm and professional in his dealing with the accident and afterwards carried on with his drive to Yeovil. I believe his name is Michael and would like to let you know that he is a credit to your company.

Dear Michael - just a note to thank you and your staff for our lovely day out in Lyme Regis last Thursday. You even managed to organise the weather so that we were blessed with warm sunshine and blue skies all day! The driver was excellent and dropped us off at the beach, near the museum. Perfect!

Very best wishes to you all, Sheila

Shelia Morgan

Hi Jacquie,
I just wanted to send you a quick email to thank your company and your driver Michael for driving a bit more than he was originally booked for.
For reasons I wont go into, the students and teachers were not provided with packed lunches by Wellington school as arranged. We therefore needed to buy everything during the time the group was at the Clip and Climb activity. Your driver Michael very kindly helped by taking my colleagues to a supermarket before returning to the pick up point without anyone noticing! This certainly helped us solve this problem and I wanted you to know that he was very supportive of our dilemma.
Thank you once again and please convey our gratitude to Michael once more.
Kind regards,

Heather King

A huge thank you for all your help and support. The trip was a success. Please could you thank the driver – he was super.

Russell Cull - Exeter School

Once again thank you must go to you and your team.
Kelvin was a superb driver who not only showed consideration to our group, but to other drivers on the road.
He showed great courtesy as well as quiet assertiveness. I admired him for keeping his cool trying to get into the town of Bruges, and through some diabolical weather.
I hope he enjoyed being with us as much as we enjoyed having him in our group.
Please can we book him for our trip in 2018 – all being well.
Do please tell him how much he was appreciated as I believe in giving credit where it is due.

Collette Boyle - Chard Helmsted Society


Fantastic weekend and Robert as always enhanced the reputation of your Company. We fully involve him in all our activities and by now (5th year) he now feels part of our Branch. I am busy at this time but will in due course make positive comment on Trip Adviser. Robert will no doubt mention we are planning to make the Perth visit from Thursday return the following Tuesday next June. 29 Seater.

Thank you Redwoods.

Regards Arthur

First of all I would like to thank you for arranging the coaches to enable us to go to LULWORTH COVE last Wednesday. As organiser of the field trip it was rather a surprise to find that the company we had originally booked to take us could not do it after all – very late notice to tell us. Thank you so much for fitting us in. It was a great relief that you could. Your drivers were extremely helpful and we felt very safe in their hands. An important element when you are responsible for other people’s children.

Aygun Gardiner – Diverse School Travel

Just a short note to thank you for making the arrangements for our coach hire last Saturday. As far as my wife and I are concerned the day was a great success and all our guests had an enjoyable day – whilst they had mostly all visited the South Devon Railway previously, Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre was a new experience for them all. You might also be interested to know that as a result of the weekend we have been able to donate £400 to charity.

Sue Pargeter

On behalf of our association, I would like to thank you for an excellent service provided for our trip to Aunay. The time keeping was spot on and your driver Steve was cheerful, helpful and competent. I think he also enjoyed good French Hospitality. We will certainly be in touch in 2 years time.

Janet George(Hon Sec). Holsworthy & District Twinning Association

With that all in place we would like to confirm our booking please. The quote we have had from you and the customer service has certainly been the best!

Jen Musson – St. Luke’s School, Exeter

Thank you for the excellent service we received on Saturday 20th taking us to the Corn barn at Cullompton for our daughter’s wedding. The access lane was very narrow but the driver was uncomplaining and very courteous and good humoured on the late trip back. Thank you very much. Russell

Russell Symons

Just a quick note to say thank you for the coach hire. Roy did an excellent job of literally getting people to the church on time and played an integral part of the day. Thanks again.

Hayden Torr – Wedding Hire

Good Morning Michael, I just wanted to send over some feedback about the coach, and thank you for your help. Firstly, the coach itself was lovely, it was very comfortable and the whole team gave it great feedback – I think being able to distract them with Sky TV helped too! Driver was great and very accommodating.

We had an excellent day at Tyntesfield and Weston, due in no small measure to your very good driver. Paul coped with some trying situations on the road and was very patient with our members, some not quite so mobile as others. Please give him our thanks.

We are all set for our upcoming tour to Coventry. Arrangements for your driver Rob’s accommodation all done, as he is now part of the furniture. Rob is one of the nicest guys we have had the pleasure to meet, and is a credit to your company.

Thank you very much for the welcome I received at Redwoods Travel on 1st August 2013. It was good to put a face to the name at last.

I was reassured in respect of the compliance, quality and standard of the service provided by your company, especially the standard and cleanliness of your coaches.

I would like to thank you and Mike for taking the time to meet with me, answer all of my questions and show me around your depot. I very much appreciated your time.

Andrea Jones – Wyvern School Tours

Thank you form your swift reply. I did send a few enquiries to local companies and providers but I have to thank you for being the only company to take the time to get back to me.

Andrew Gilby

I would like to pass on my huge thanks to yourself and your team for the professionalism and smooth execution of the coach exchange(s) yesterday. I have to say that considering what had to be done, the traffic & time delays, losing just one hour was a reflection of Redwood’s true professionalism.

We thank you all very much for your swift assistance yesterday and would have no hesitation in using you again.

Dear Jacquie

Our thanks again.

Thanks again

Russell Cull- Exeter School

We were extremely pleased, you and your drivers did not let us down. We were very punctual, polite and very helpful when the guys wanted to stop for shopping.

Emma Cahill

Hi Jacquie,

Thanks for yesterday. The other staff on the bus have asked me to get in touch about the driver. I was, as usual, fast asleep, so didn’t see it, but the others did. An idiot in the car in front did his best to cause an accident, and if it hadn’t been for your drivers quick thinking and cool actions it could have been quite nasty. They were really impressed with him.

I did ask him his name, but I’ve forgotten it sorry! Apparently he really did prevent an accident happening. Nice guy too.

Thanks again,

Jon Leonard – Wellington School

I just wanted to write and thank you and the three drivers for the excellent service we received on both our journeys to and from Minehead this weekend. The drivers were great on both journeys and it made the tour a whole lot more enjoyable being able to travel in comfort and with a reliable service.

Good Afternoon Jacquie please can I say a big thanks to all of our drivers who have made our pre-season journeys around the Country enjoyable and safe. I also wanted to say a big thanks to Richard who was a great credit to yourselves by rolling up his sleves and mend our coach, without which I am sure the trip to Derby County fc would have had to be cancelled. Also to your good man Paul who came to finish the journey off for us.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to all concerned, what a great team and company you are Best Wishes Mickey. Centre of Excellence Coach and Fire Officer.

Once again our time here at Taunton School comes to an end after what seemed a very short summer.

We at LAL Taunton School would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your fantastic crew for everything you have done for us this summer. This summer your drivers were outstanding once again and proved to us that Redwoods Travel is second to none in the area of service and delivery.

We greatly appreciate all the work and effort you have put in this summer and we would like to also pass on this compliment to the drivers, who have always been committed and brought a smile on all the staff members faces with their positive and friendly attitude.

Kind regards and many thanks,

A belated, but very sincere thanks, for your assistance in arranging the guest transport for my son’s wedding at Maunsel House.

You will be aware that I give you the incorrect post code for the premier inn. However, your driver was brilliant and managed to ensure that the guests all arrived on time. Not only did he sort out my mistake but he did so with a smile! So many guests Commented how helpful and pleasant he was.
Can I ask that you please convey my apologies for sending him to the wrong hotel and my sincere thanks for saving my skin.

I would recommend Redwoods to anyone who was looking for excellent service with a competitive price as a bonus!
