I just wanted to pass on our thanks for the vintage coach on Friday 22nd July in Bakewell.

The driver was excellent,  calling prior to the time he was due to say that he was already in Bakewell and would be at the rendezvous in plenty of time. His timing, courtesy and pleasant manner was a joy to behold. The day was hot and when he opened the roof it was magical.

The Bedford almost stole the show but that privilege was reserved for the bride. It really made the day complete so thanks once again. I cannot recommend your service highly enough.

Please feel free to use this email on your website as testimony to your great service and wonderful vehicle.
