"As a band director who has taken many trips like this, I am too aware of how important having good bus drivers are to the success of the tour. Your employees were far and away the best drivers I have had the good fortune to work with. They were polite, courteous, punctual, well organized and very skilled drivers. They were also friendly, patient and cooperative, always sure to take charge of the loading of luggage and equipment. They shared their knowledge of the sites with charm and enthusiasm. It was a joy to be around them."
