Hi Mike,

The Y5 teacher asked me to contact you to say that the driver we had taking our children swimming this morning, was 'the best driver ever'!

Any chance that we could have him every week?

Best Wishes

I just wanted to let you know what a gem your driver was yesterday for the summer school trip for Rayner Stephens to Crocky trail.

He was brilliant with the staff and students - gave clear instructions and was supportive.

The journeys were flawless and even though we arrived back slightly late all was taken in good spirits.

Thank you and him for the wonderful journey

Hi Donna

I wasn’t sure who to contact from your website, but I just wanted to pass on a message about the regular driver of the 752 school bus that goes from Cheadle to Loreto Grammar.

My daughter will finish her first year (7) at Loreto tomorrow, and she and I wanted to pass on our thanks to the driver. He has made the schoolchildren feel safe and welcome, and has made the start and end of the day a friendly place for them. They’ve also experienced replacement drivers that haven’t been quite the same, so they recognise what a nice man he is and that’s been really important to them in what has been an incredibly challenging year for them.

We would probably have just bought him some chocolates if it had been a “normal“ year, but Covid precautions have made some things a bit harder to do!

So please pass on our thanks and gratitude. I would imagine it can be a thankless task at times, so his kindness and care throughout have been very much appreciated.

Many thanks

Good afternoon Damian

I just wanted to thank you on behalf of all the girls and staff that you transported to and from the beach and Crocky Trails last week.

I have heard that you were an amazing, tolerant, kind driver, as were all the drivers of each and every coach.

It was a pleasure dealing with you from the start, getting quotes etc and as can be seen from our subsequent booking with your company, we would not hesitate to use you again.

Many thanks again

Good morning,

I have been a passenger on the Belle-vue shuttle service between Staycity and the Christie Hospital for 8 weeks while having Proton Beam Therapy.

This email is to give special thanks to both Alain and Tracey for both their careful driving but also their friendliness and consideration with assisting me get off the bus, ensuring my wheeled walker was ready and safe for me to use.

Please pass on my thanks and good wishes

Morning Belle Vue

Just wanted to drop a quick email for feedback regarding one of your drivers.

My 3 children get the Y11 mornings and afternoon, have done for years. Whilst the drivers have occasionally changed, your current driver is by far the best we’ve had. One thing that sticks out particularly is punctuality. The bus is ALWAYS waiting to depart from the first stop at 07:45. Traffic to school is notoriously unpredictable but he manages to get them to school on time. Furthermore, the bus is regularly getting to it’s last stop (Red Lion, Cheadle) earlier than previous drivers. That big yellow bus is a welcome sight at 16:10 (ish) when the weather isn’t being kind. Historically, we’ve been lucky if it’s pulling up at 16:20!

Unfortunately, I don’t remember his name. He took over duties from Jan this year and did introduce himself originally, but it’s been too far gone now for the embarrassing question of ‘what’s your name again?’ and so it’s now just ‘mate’!

In an age where there is the belief of ‘when you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all’, he is a prime example. His efforts make mine (and I’m sure the other parents’) day and schedule just that little bit easier and it’s very much appreciated.

We had a trip with you last week and I just wanted to share this amazing feedback we have received from the customer:

"The quality of the service we received during our trip was 10/10. I would never even consider using another company. The coach was of the highest quality, the drivers were super efficient and very professional."

Thank you so much for your great service!

Dear Damien

I hope this email finds you well

I am writing to firstly thank you for being an amazing coach company to work with.

Further to thank you personally, as you took us on our past outing to ‘simply cycling’ and you were a true role model for our girls in how calm you remained despite a window having been smashed.

Besides that you were patient, kind, helpful, positive, pleasant and encouraging. It made the journey all the nicer having a driver that really understands and gets ‘teens’

We want to thank you again and cannot think of using any other coach company for our trips in the future.

I also want to make special mention of Craig who spent three days with us on our overnight trip to S Wales.

What an incredible helpful, understanding and amenable driver he was right from the onset of the journey till the very end.

He basically packed the coach on the last day for us ensuring there was room for everyone and everything besides being empathetic throughout.

With such positive experiences we look forwarding to using your company on a continual basis.

Thank you once again

With best wishes

Mrs Esther Levy on behalf of Rabbi Wilson, Miriam Kaufman and the school

Dear Mr. Hitchin

We returned safely from a very successful holiday to the Isle of Wight.

The new coach with wheelchair facility was a great improvement. Thank you!

We particularly want to commend our driver, Patrick on his exemplary conduct, patience, politeness and helpful assistance. Nothing was too much trouble. Not forgetting his excellent driving standard in sometimes difficult circumstances. He is a great asset to you. Please send him again when we next book a Belle Vue coach and pass on our sincere thanks.

Kind Regards

Jade and the whole Bellevue team were extremely helpful from day one in ensuring our trips ran as smoothly as possible! They provided excellent service, from the organisation and flexibility in coping with all our requirements to the professionalism and courtesy shown by the drivers.

Thank you!

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Dear Belle VueI am just sending this short note to say a very big thank you on behalf of Manor Court Social.

We went to Millstones nr Harrogate for a day trip and everybody on the coach on the hottest day of the year would like to say a very big thank you to our wonderful driver Yvonne who did a fantastic job in very adverse weather conditions.

She is a credit to Belle Vue. Please convey our thanks to her.

Yours sincerely

TAC Blackpool Lights Trip

Dear Sir/Madam,

We had a great day out and loved the executive mini-coach.

Our driver Kevin was flexible and very attentive to the elderly offering help with seat belts and ensuring all were comfortable prior to departure.

Taking us through the lights he ensured another comfort stop was as required.

We made sure the coach was kept clean and tidy along the journey but Kevin was also efficient in checking all rubbish was cleared and the coach ready for the next group.

Please keep his details on our file so he can be our driver next time.

Thank you and we look forward to the next trip.

Hi Phil,

Just a quick line to thank your driving team who looked after us throughout our 30th Anniversary Celebrations last week.
They are Lucas, Kevin and Matt.
Matt drew the short straw and had to put up with us for two days!
They were all, as you would expect, courteous and careful drivers.
We look forward to travelling with you again as we ease ourselves out of Covid.

Best wishes

Ken Brannagan

My name is Ken Brannagan I have been in Manchester for the last 6.5 weeks being treated at the Christie hospital for cancer, I am now in the car on my way back down south having had my last treatment today.

I'm just going over the last month and a half in my head and the places I visited whilst there and the people I have met. Two of the people that stand out were 2 of your drivers that were on the stay city/Christie center run Colin and Alan, every time I got on the bus I was greeted with a smiling face and a genuine concern to find out my progress, and how I was and if I was OK. But what I noticed over time is that it was with every passenger and there family they made a real effort to involve themselves and make everyone feel comfortable.

There willingness to share there local knowledge of things to see and do in Manchester and how to get there was above and beyond.

These two gentlemen are an asset to your company and ambassadors to your brand they have made the journey to and from a pleasure.

I will miss our chats and wish them both all the best for the future

Kind Regards and Thanks

Dear Phil

Belle Vue’s service was exceptional!

From the great customer service provided by the office team during the initial booking process, all the way to the professionalism of the drivers on our journeys. They were incredibly flexible and happily made changes to their service based on our ever-changing requirements.

Belle Vue also provided high quality vehicles which were driven by well-presented and well-mannered drivers. We will definitely be using Belle Vue Coaches again in our future projects in the Manchester area!

Tim Hazlehurst

Just wanted to message to say that Tim [the driver on the Y24] has been amazing while the weather has been so hot and the bus so uncomfortable for the children who I know individually as I am on the 24 almost every week as chaperone and have been for several years now. He bought a cool box and filled it with water bottles and I brought extra water and every child on the bus had a cold drink - there were almost 50 children on board. I think he is very considerate and it's a pleasure to work with him.


Rob Gill

Cardiff tripDear Belle Vue,I am writing to you in regards to one of your drivers that took me and my group down to Cardiff, Rob.Rob was brilliant for the full three days that we had him. He was very professional and respectful to all the guests over the duration of the tour and made sure that all health and safety procedures were carried out. He also had excellent personal skills and made you feel that you could approach him with ease and he would be willing to work together as a team.

I wanted to write this to you to make you aware of what a good job Rob did for us as I have dealt with many dodgy drivers in the past.Kind RegardsJack Slinn

Andy Green

Hi Phil

Mrs G and my daughter Maisie have been on a school trip today from Millbrook Primary in Stalybridge to Chester.

Whenever they go on such a trip they know the first question I ask is what was the transport like, was the coach clean, was it safe, what was the driver like etc etc.

I walked in this evening and before I even had chance to ask they told me they have been on the best coach and the driver Dominic was amazing.

Apparently he had them singing wheels on the bus on the way to Chester and then to the whole class’s delight he had arranged for them to watch The Greatest Showman on the TVs on the way home, this was the highlight of the day according to Maisie.

Dominic was an absolute credit to Belle Vue, he was absolutely first class according to the girls!
