Day Excursions Testimonials

Stourhead House & Gardens - 11.4.24

Just wanted to thank you for another wonderful day out, to Stourhead House & Gardens, yesterday. Your driver, E, even organised the weather and the sun came out as soon as we arrived, to be followed by a lovely warm and dry afternoon!

So much to see there, in the gardens and the house, so definitely need to put that on my list to visit again. Thank you. CE of Worthing, West Sussex
I would like to say a big Thank You to all of your drivers for being so courteous and pleasant. People are so easy to criticize and not to praise. I have travelled on many day trips and several overnight stays with you and have yet to have an unpleasant driver.

I recently visited Southampton (Mayflower Theatre), Royal Albert Hall and Lymington and all the drivers need congratulations. I hope my holiday to the Dutch Bulb Fields in April is as much of a success. BW of Worthing, West Sussex
ABBA Voyage - 27.1.24

We just wanted to express what a pleasure it was to travel to ABBA voyage with yourselves on Saturday 1st January. We would like to especially praise the driver, E, who was superb and made the journey very relaxed. His smile was contagious.

We will definitely be using you again. Thanks for helping to make the day fabulous. CL of East Sussex
Mountbatten Festival of Music - 9.3.24

Just a short note to thank you for the splendid excursion to the Royal Albert Hall last Saturday. The concert was brilliant and the organisation of the day by Woods was faultless.

A special word of praise must also go to C, such a calm and patient driver. I wouldn't want to drive a car through central London these days, let alone a full-sized coach! We had a very special day out and even treated ourselves to lunch in the Verdi restaurant. We hope that you will be arranging another trip there next year. KF & RF of Chichester, West Sussex
Kew at Christmas & Winter Light Trail - 28.11.23

I would like to thank you for organising the brilliant trip to Kew this week. My friend and I really enjoyed it. We had never been, and loved it.

The driver was so friendly and drove very well and we had a lovely stop at Chessington on the way and had plenty of time in the gardens. It was a really super day out. DG of Worthing, West Sussex
Bruges Christmas Market - 26.11.23

I'm writing following the Bruges Christmas Market Day Trip yesterday with drivers P & E. It's our first time booking with Woods, or any coach trip, and wanted to pass on our experience.

The booking staff were very helpful, delightful in fact. The drivers were second to none with their careful driving and professional and friendly attitude. They made a point of checking on everyone, ensuring people were comfortable and happy. Great information and commentary was provided throughout the trip, and kindness and respect was shown to everyone. I can not praise them more highly, the way they have represented themselves and the company.

Please pass on our sincere thanks to the team for a fantastic experience with such attention to detail. LH of Littlehampton, West Sussex
Hampton Court Palace - 21.4.23

Excellent trip to Hampton Court. Many thanks to the driver for telling us interesting facts along the way. The drop off point was excellent and just a short walk to the Palace.

The palace and gardens were amazing. I hadn't realised the gardens were so huge. It was also easy to eat in the garden café and the headsets were easy to use. TH of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
Disney on Ice 'Dream Big' - 30.12.22

Happy New Year to you all.

May I just offer my thanks to J, our driver. He took the coach trip to the O2 yesterday to Disney on Ice Dream Big. The weather conditions were appalling with a lot of spray and driving rain. He was very professional and drove to the conditions perfectly.

With a lot of children on the coach, he was kind and considerate. I feel he needs to know he is appreciated and my Grandchildren had a wonderful day.

Many thanks again. SG of Littlehampton, West Sussex
Wareham River Cruise with Fish & Chips - 15.8.22

Just like to say how much my friend and I enjoyed our day trip. The driver, R, was excellent and a very good driver.

Our boat trip to Wareham was very enjoyable and the fish and chip lunch was very yummy!
In all a great day out. CB & MH of Bognor Regis, W Sussex
Poole Vintage Cruise & Compton Acres - 30.6.22

I have just returned from my first ever Day Excursion with you. My old friend took me and three other friends on the Poole Vintage Cruise and Compton Acres to celebrate her 80th birthday. I thoroughly enjoyed my day out with Woods and with E, the lovely and good driver.

I am off to Shap Wells Hotel on Thursday on the Lakes, Dales & Mountain Goat holiday. Woods is like being part of a big happy family and I am so glad you have managed to get through the pandemic and I look forward to many holidays with you in the future. GS of Burgess Hill, West Sussex
Flying Scotsman Hampshire Tour from Salisbury - 24.3.22

Thank you very much for such a happy day out on Thursday, 24th March, to Salisbury, and the wonderful ride on the Flying Scotsman. It was so exciting and the lady who guided us was really special and looked after us all so well.

Thank you again and I am looking forward to my next day with you visiting the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth. Very best wishes. RW of Midhurst, West Sussex
I’ve just got home from what I can only describe as one fabulous day out to Salisbury & a trip on the iconic Flying Scotsman. A huge thank you to your terrific driver, D, and courier T.

I met some lovely fellow passengers & of course, the amazing weather couldn’t have been better.
I look forward to travelling with Woods again but just wanted to say thank you to all involved in organising this trip. PD of Bognor Regis, W Sussex
Hever - Christmas at the Castle with Lunch - 1.12.21

Me and my husband very much enjoyed the day at Hever Castle. In particular the Christmas lunch which was excellent. Beautiful setting. Mulled wine on arrival a surprise and very welcome.

Venue perfect. The carvery was brilliantly carried out. The turkey was moist and tasty, and vegetables were perfectly cooked. The table service of the dessert excellent and surprising to have cafetieres with cream, perfect. Party hats too! Excellent quality overall.

The Castle was very interesting too, and we managed to dodge the showers. The Driver, T, was great, and all in all a great day out. Thank you. TH of Chichester, W Sussex
Runnymede River Cruise, Lunch & Savill Gardens with Cream Tea - 17.8.21

I must say how excellent this day out was. It was very well organised. Our driver was very helpful and friendly, and the food supplied was very good.

We will certainly use your company again. Thank you. MH of Petworth, West Sussex
Swanage & Corfe Castle – 11/09/20

It is good to see Woods back in operation and I enjoyed my trip to Swanage last Friday.
For many years now my late wife and I have enjoyed our holidays and many day trips with your company. I have already booked a handful of trips for this autumn and winter and for a holiday in April.

This letter is to say thank you, both for the continued company activities itself and for your staff who are doing a stirling job under difficult circumstances. Although my selection of day trips will be more limited now that I am on my own, I will still be supporting Woods and encouraging my friends to do the same.

Keep up the good work, it is very much appreciated. BB of Littlehampton, West Sussex
Wow! What a fantastic day out to see "Mary Poppins." It was worth every penny (or even pound) for the tickets and the coach ride. The driver even managed to get us home earlier, skilfully negotiating the London traffic in rush hour.

Petula Clark, at 87, had a standing ovation every time she appeared. As for Charlie Stemp walking upside down and Zizi Strallen flying through the air - it was magical! Our grateful thanks for organising such a wonderful outing. MC of Rustington, West Sussex
I am writing to let you know how much I enjoyed your day excursion on 18th December to Wisley to see the gardens illuminated. It really was a very good trip and an excellent show, following the walk as the detailed sheet we were given.

The tea provided was also really enjoyable. My friend arranged this visit for a group of six of us and everyone was impressed. VR of Littlehampton, West Sussex
We recently went on the Christmas market and light show to Waddesdon Manor. I just wanted to say how excellent the trip was and in particular our driver, G. He was so friendly, helpful and highly entertaining.

Thank you for another brilliant trip. I would highly recommend this one again for next year. BS & GS of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
I just wanted to say thank you to your driver, P, for his excellent driving and attention on our trip yesterday to see Tina the Musical. It does make the day out having such a cheerful and knowledgeable driver in charge.

I should also take this opportunity of thanking you all for all your care and attention that goes into the planning of all your tours and trips. We are now looking forward to our holiday with you in September to Manchester. No wonder you keep getting the awards! JS & PS of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
Just wish to tell you how much my daughter and I enjoyed our trip with your coach travel to The Ideal Home exhibition on Friday.

We had a great day, which was made more enjoyable by your nice careful driver, C, we felt very safe travelling with him. He is such a lovely kind friendly helpful man, and hopefully we might be lucky enough to get him on any of our future trips with your company.

Thank You. JA of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
Just a short note to let you know how much we enjoyed the Barrow Boys and Bankers Tour with Lunch on Tuesday, despite the weather.

The pub where we had the meal was amazing and the pie lunch was very tasty as well. Our driver, B was great and looked after us well. MS of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
We have recently travelled to London to attend matinee performances of "Tina- the musical" and "Snow White, the Panto" at the Palladium. We just wanted to let you know that both trips were a resounding success!

Our driver, R, was excellent. He kept us well-informed about all aspects of the trip and his driving was amazing, especially given the traffic in London at what must be one of the most demanding times of the year. He is to be congratulated on maintaining a calm manner and demonstrating his skill at all times.

Our seats for both performances were excellent and the provision of an aisle seat as requested was greatly appreciated. We shall definitely be looking to book future theatre trips with Woods and will be pleased to recommend them to friends and family as exceptional value for money! CT & DT of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
My wife and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary by joining your company's day trip to London to see Bat Out of Hell. The coach was driven by P who was polite and got us there and back safely for which I am grateful. We appreciated the stop at services on the outward trip, and when we reached the theatre we had enough time to go for lunch in Garfunkel's next to The Dominion Theatre.

The seats you provided were excellent (as was the show). This is the second time I have been on a theatre trip with Woods, the first being to the Mayflower Southampton, and both times the seats have been the best I've ever had, so thank you for that, and it definitely makes me want to book again. Thank you for providing us with a lovely memory for our anniversary.

Best regards CP of Horsham, West Sussex
Together with my friends, we travelled to Eastbourne to see the Airshow with Woods (shame about the weather). We would like you to know that you have such a very pleasant and helpful driver. He was so caring of us all.

Please give our thanks to him and we look forward to using your company again. BF of Rustington, West Sussex
I am writing to say a great big thank you to your driver who really made our day on the trip to The Garlic Festival. He was just great and it was through him we all enjoyed ourselves, so please thank him and don't let him go! CG of Felpham, Bognor Regis
I went on your trip to see The King and I in London yesterday and would just like say how impressed I was with your driver, J. She is a credit to your company. She was very informative and her cheerful manner enhanced an excellent trip. IT of Littlehampton, West Sussex
Enjoyed our trip to Bodiam Castle and Kent & East Sussex Railway. Good value, and G, our driver, was so good.

Thank you for our lovely day. PL of West Sussex
Just a note to say how enjoyable the Windsor River Cruise & Savill Garden trip was. It was such a lovely day on the river at one with the wildlife and tranquillity, and the meal on the cruise and cream tea at the garden were excellent.

Once again, a great day organised so well by Woods. DH of Littlehampton, West Sussex
Many thanks once again for a great day out to the Monet & Architecture Exhibition at the National Gallery.

The lunch at the Strand Palace was excellent, and your drivers always go the extra mile to make the day special. MH of Chichester, West Sussex
I would like to say how much I enjoyed the trip to Stourhead House and Garden today, especially our driver, L, who really made the day with his knowledge and humorous stories. His driving was brilliant too and we arrived back home earlier than expected.

He said he has the best job in the world and it shows. Thank you. JC of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
Having been on your day trip to Bath yesterday (and returned to Rustington in one piece!) I feel compelled to write a congratulatory email. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed the day out, including the 'interesting' journey home in horrendous weather. I cannot praise the two drivers, B and E, enough!

We simply would never have got home last night had it not been for the skilful competence of the drivers, particularly B who, goodness knows how, got us through the treacherous snowy roads of Somerset and Wiltshire. They were both so reassuringly cool and calm! Please convey our thanks and gratitude. Hope we meet them again on another trip!

Thank you! SL of Rustington, W Sussex
A friend and I travelled with Woods Travel to Brighton to watch War Horse. We could not fault our trip with driver, L. The coach was spotless and on time. We had a lovely day out and enjoyed the show with perfect seats. This is the 4th show we have been with Woods Travel and we will be returning. JB of Littlehampton, West Sussex
I am writing to thank you for the fantastic trip to Salisbury yesterday.

The driver arrived on the dot at Rustington, and as usual, a very nice calm journey. The seating arrangements for the Carol Service were superb for us and the mulled wine and mince pie just right before setting off home.

WELL DONE AND THANK YOU! ME of Rustington, West Sussex
I just wanted to thank you all once again for another 2 great trips with you. The Classical Spectacular at the Albert Hall on 19th November was amazing! Monday, this week, I went on the London Carvery and Christmas Lights Tour. Seeing the lights and ending at Somerset House was brilliant. I really enjoyed it all.

I would like to wish all at Woods, including the drivers (they are a great bunch), a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and see you again in 2018. JF of West Sussex
Just wanted to say what a brilliant day trip we had to Camden Market on Friday. The driver, P, was excellent and had very good manners and was a very courteous driver to other motorists.

A really lovely day and looking forward to our next excursion. LC & DE of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
I was very fortunate to travel with you to London on Saturday to the Knitting & Stitching Show. Please congratulate the driver. A great driver who made the trip with his wonderful sense of humour and superb driving skills.

Well done Woods Coaches. A tremendous asset to your company. MW of West Sussex
I would just like to say how much my husband and I enjoyed our trip to the Postal Museum on the 22 September. The museum itself was very interesting and the trip on the Mail Rail was amazing. Our tour guide was very informative and very knowledgeable. Our driver, S, was very good - as are all the drivers we've had on various excursions we've taken with you. MS of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
I am writing to thank you for organising the excursion to Sculpture by the Lakes, Dorchester. It was a truly memorable day - the wonderful sculptures set in such a lovely peaceful landscape and so uncommercialised - a day to remember. JS of East Preston, W. Sussex
Ball & Boe concert
'In a world where people are quick to complain I felt I must compliment you on a terrific service last night. Maybe I am slightly swayed by the beautiful weather, venue and wonderful show last night, but the service provided by your company only added to the overall enjoyment.

The coach was prompt, the seats were central and a great view, I felt relaxed with the way your driver handled the coach on the narrow roads and he was knowledgeable enough to get us out of the car park with little trouble. So thank you and well done for a first class service!' SB of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
I was on your coach trip to Bletchley Park.

I would just like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my day despite the weather and traffic congestion over which I appreciate you had no control.

I would, however, like to congratulate your driver that day. I believe his name was C. As a driver of many years, I am a rather nervous passenger but was put at ease by this chaps exceptionally good driving. Confident, careful and steady, but maintaining good speed on motorways. He is a credit to the Woods company. S.P of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
Can I just let you know your Driver, J, on our trip to The Ideal Home Show was amazing

He was patient in the bad traffic conditions and kept us all well informed about what was going on and what would be happening. He was also very patient with a late comer on the way home as well.

My Daughter and I had a lot of shopping from the show and J stowed this safely for us in the luggage compartment. The traffic coming home was also very heavy and unpredictable. J stayed calm and focused and got us all home in good time.

I know all Woods drivers are exemplary but feel credit where credit is due. S.G of Littlehampton, West Sussex
I thought I’d just drop you a line to say how much everyone in my WI group enjoyed the Woods Travel trip to see the ‘Undressed’ exhibition at the V&A.

All arrangements before and during the trip went like clockwork and we found the driver, P, to be extremely helpful and professional.

Thank you once again and we will definitely use Woods Travel again. AA of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
I would just like to say that although we had an awful journey in regards to the volume of traffic in and out of London due to the train strikes, what a fantastic driver C was.

He drove well, was cheerful, calm and was so pleasant towards the passengers.

Well done C! DM of West Sussex
I am writing to compliment S and R, the two Woods drivers who looked after us on our trip to Adinkerke & Cite Europe on Saturday.They kept their cool and took very great care of all the passengers.

Arriving back in Chichester at well after midnight I discovered that taxis to Selsey were in short supply, but one on its way back from Tangmere could detour to collect me, this would mean waiting ten minutes in a not very pleasant area. S and R refused to leave me alone on the pavement and insisted I stay on the coach until my taxi arrived, even though they were tired and needed to get home themselves, this was definitely kindness above and beyond their duties.

Being 82 years old and not very mobile I was delighted to take their advice and wait on the coach with them. Please pass on my sincere thanks and give them both a very large 'pat on the back' from me. Both these gentleman are a wonderful advertisement for Woods and the care they take of their passengers. JRG of Selsey, Chichester
Windsor Cruise & Lunch and Savill Gardens & Cream Tea - what a lovely day – excellent tour, good driver, very well organised. Thank You. I have no hesitation in recommending you to other groups. President of local Ladies Probus Club
Thank you very much for taking us on your trip of the High Weald with lunch. We enjoyed the trip very much and the meal was very nice indeed.

A really lovely day. N of Bognor Regis
'I just want to say how lovely the trip to Kensington Palace was. The driver was very nice and cheerful and entertained us with plenty of jokes along the way. It really does make the day when the driver is nice, and he was certainly the best so far. Thank you.'
MO, Chichester West Sussex
'Thank you so much for letting us join your trip to London to see Mr Sinatra.

The trip was good both ways. We had plenty of time to have lunch at a fabulous restaurant and the show was amazing. We would go and see it again!

Thank you again.'
PG of Felpham, Bognor Regis, West Sussex
'Just a line to say how pleased we were with our trip to Greenwich yesterday (Sunday) to the Tom Jones venue. We had already purchased our tickets for the show and used you for transport which was excellent.

A very well deserved mention and thanks to the driver, P, who had the most horrendous rain to deal with throughout the journey and then a diversion on the way back because of an accident. He was polite, courteous and helpful at all times and in particular his patience and gentle manner to a passenger with learning difficulties was very nice to see.

Thank you once again.'
TG of Chichester, West Sussex
'I would like to express our thanks to Woods for an excellent trip to Theatreland yesterday to see Miss Saigon. Our driver G, was kind, courteous, informative and really made sure the trip went off with a bang. His customer care was second to none and we are looking forward to our next trip with you shortly.

Thanks again for making it a special day.'
RW & AMC of Chichester, West Sussex
'We had a wonderful time on Saturday thank you, the show was fantastic and The Woseley was superb. V was excellent I'm glad he was driving. All was very professional and will use Woods again.

Thank you for your help.'
HL of Felpham, West Sussex (Wish Day)
'It was WONDERFUL!! (Cunard's 3 Queens Sailaway at Southampton)

T, our driver, was excellent, very helpful with the information we needed, smooth drive - all good.

The boat trip was brilliant; we were out for nearly three hours, saw five liners leave Southampton, and the captain of our boat worked hard, in conjunction with the harbour master, to ensure that we were always in the right place at the right time. It couldn't have been better.

Thank you so much. You have two extremely happy customers!'
PR of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
'Good morning!
Just to say thank you so much for another wonderful day. We went to see Les Mis yesterday and driver was brilliant, as are all your drivers.
Do you have any tickets left for ‘Stomp’ in September?
Many thanks and keep up the fantastic work!'

RC of East Preston, West Sussex
'Hello, I just wish to express my thanks to your company, firstly for contacting me to let me know the trip was happening (as my friend and I had to cancel last September due to injury) and for the efficiency in which the trip was organised, and secondly to thank you for the great day we had yesterday at Highgrove House. The weather was superb (for which you were not responsible), and I shall reflect on the pleasure of the garden tour, cream tea and lovely countryside for some time to come. A most enjoyable day!' JM of Rainham, Kent
John Rutter's Christmas Celebration - many thanks for the trip to London to the concert. The seats were excellent (second balcony) and we hope to be on your list for next year's celebration please. AM of Bognor Regis
'I would like to thank you for an excellent trip to see Michael Buble at the O2 last Tuesday. The coach driver was friendly, the coach festive and comfortable, and the journeys both ways were good. The concert itself was fantastic.

I would recommend your coach trips without hesitation.' SC of Worthing, West Sussex
'Day Trip to The Mayflower Theatre - River Dance 4 December 2014

Yet again thank you Woods for a wonderful day out. You never fail to impress and deliver such a high class service. The coach was clean and comfortable, and the driver T was extremely professional and cheerful. He did so well getting out of Southampton during the build up of traffic. Rather him than me!

We have now been with you on many day trips and foreign trips, including Brugge and Egypt, and not once have we been disappointed.

The staff in the main office are always helpful and polite, and are a credit to the whole running of the company. Once again a very big thank you from us both.'
J & JB of Selsey, West Sussex
'My wife and I went to London to see War Horse. This was a brilliant show and I would recommend it to anyone.

I would like to make a comment about your coach driver J. His driving was superb, and he drove this large coach around London with no effort.

On the way to the show he took us on a guided tour of the capital. I have not driven in London for many years, and to be driven around in luxury was very nice.

If we want to go to London again we will certainly look to Woods for information.'
BS of Tangmere, West Sussex

Yes, thank you for making a visit to the poppies a reality. What an amazing reaction to your arrangements. 16 coaches! I certainly hope that people who have not experienced Woods before - either for day trips, or super holidays, will now realise what a super company you are.

Thank you, too, for sending that huge cheque to the Poppy Appeal. Roger, you are a diamond!

With grateful thanks.'
VS of Littlehampton, West Sussex
'I didn't think I would enjoy a day out in a coach but my friend strongly advised me. I am so glad she did. We thoroughly enjoyed our day excursion to Windsor Castle, stopping off at Guildford Cathedral.

The coach was comfortable, clean, air conditioned and immaculately turned out. The driver was an extremely good driver, polite, helpful and very cheerful.

I am now looking forward to my next excursion with Woods. I thoroughly recommend Woods Travel. I am a very impressed convert.

We are already planning our next adventure with Woods Travel.'
BC of Barnham, West Sussex
'We went to Buckingham Palace yesterday and want to tell you what a great day it was. The coach driver R was good courteous and helpful, the meal at the Ruben Hotel was excellent.

Thank you look forward to our next trip.' MS of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
'Please will you give G (our driver) the enclosed. It is to thank him for our nice time out on Friday 27 June. Also thank you all for the lovely service you give us in your office when we call in or on the phone, we are most grateful.

We look forward to our next holiday which we have booked already - a cruise to Norway. Thank you once again.' PC of Littlehampton, West Sussex
'Theatre trip - Phantom 19th June

We went on this theatre outing with your driver T who told us he was due to retire very soon.
The care and courtesy he gave us throughout the day was first class, arriving exactly on the allotted time everywhere.

We would like to add our names to the many thanks he and you must have received, but having recently travelled with another company, we can honestly say that WOODS are totally outstanding.'
Review received via Yell.com
'I thought I would just drop you a line to commend all concerned in relation to our trip on Wednesday to the Shard when a traffic incident at Vauxhall led to the planned schedule being seriously disrupted.

The lady who accompanied the group, M, kept the Brew Wharf informed about the serious delays and was able to obtain a later time for the group to visit the Shard which in the event was probably a plus point as the clouds had separated and the views were great. She had to walk to the Shard whilst people were lunching as apparently they could not change the time over the phone for some reason.

The driver, T, kept in liaison with your control and the passengers informed and I think all the group had a good day despite what I think was a delay of some 90 minutes sitting in traffic from Battersea to the Embankment.'
BK of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
'I just wanted to let you know how impressed we were at the service you provided last night for our evening with Paul Hollywood.

The driver was very nice and the coach was very comfortable, it made the travelling so much less stressful.

I can't recommend your company enough and will certainly be using you again.'
TT of Worthing, West Sussex
'We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the trip to see the Cunard "Queens" last Friday!

We have not travelled with your company before, being new residents in the area, but we were most impressed with the organisation and arrangements for the trip.

Your driver, G, was very good...keeping us informed all evening and delivering us back to Bognor Regis exactly at the time which was forecast....quite a feat given the number of people, coaches and cars in the Southampton Dock area after the event finished !!

Thank you again.'
C & DT of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
'Dear L,
I would like to thank you for the arrangements you made for us last Sunday. Everything went very smoothly and everyone enjoyed the varied and different itinerary. It was a bonus that it was a Steam Day at the Lavender Line and they all really enjoyed seeing the steam engines and the relaxing train ride.

The Pudding Club was something completely different and, after sampling 6 different delicious puddings, most of the participants took a leisurely stroll round the lake, before leaving completely bloated. I would also like to thank J, the Driver for his courteous service throughout the day. I have had many good comments on his wonderful attitude to customers. What an excellent advert for your company.'

TS, A Local Group Organiser from Littlehampton
'L Kindly arranged a visit to Windsor Castle for our association yesterday. It went off without a hitch and we all had a splendid day out. I should like to offer both her and our driver, E my sincere thanks for giving us a faultless day out.

It`s encouraging to know that there is at least one coach company that I can call on to look after us properly.
Many thanks.'
PM, a Group Organiser for a local Conservative Association
'Re: Swanage & The Swanage Railway

I just wanted to let you know what a WONDERFUL time I had on the trip today! The whole experience was amazing.
I was particularly impressed with how you accommodated me at such short notice (less than 24 hours) and put a bigger coach on. Very impressive!

The driver was amazing, attentive and a safe driver. I would highly recommend any one to go on this trip. So relaxing and enjoyable.

Thank you Woods for a truly unique service. I am planning my next trip with you now!'
AB of Chichester, West Sussex
'Orient Express - My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip on Wed 24th July.
I wish to pass our thanks to the driver who helped to make this a special day for our wedding anniversary. He was most helpful and courteous always ensuring that our comfort was important.

We have travelled on many Woods coaches and always found the drivers to be well dressed and polite, and most importantly ensuring we are made aware of the safety information.

Thank you'
KG of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
'I expect you will see from your records that we have been on several Woods' holidays and day trips, and appreciate your efforts to satisfy your customers. Our trip to see War Horse yesterday was a surprise birthday present (last March!) from my husband and we were really impressed by the cloak and dagger method of keeping it a secret until my birthday day.

The day was superb, the show magnificent, but I expect you have heard that from other people. S, our driver could not be faulted, driving through crowded London streets and keeping us safe all day. So, give yourselves a pat on the back as we are already talking about seeing War Horse again at The Mayflower next year.

Lovely happy memories for us.' B & JH of Chichester, West Sussex
'I had to drop you an email to say how delighted my wife and I were with yesterday's trip.

From start to finish it was first class in typical Woods high standards. The driver G was a credit to your organisation and displayed a high professional standard throughout. He could not have been more helpful. His timing was exemplary and we arrived with plenty of time to enjoy a first class (pre-booked) lunch and a glass of wine.

The show was terrific (The Jersey Boys) and most people in our group were clapping and moving with the music.

Once again, thank you Woods Travel for yet another memorable day.' JB of Selsey, West Sussex
'We love taking the opportunity to take in shows and events in London without the strain of driving and parking or worrying about the train service home.

Always a friendly and helpful service from both the office and the drivers.

Let Woods provide the Goods and keep up the good work.'
CC of Selsey, West Sussex
'In response to your email ref "the best loved business in area", I would endorse Woods Travel as the best in area. We have always received a high class service and high standards always with helpful friendly staff & drivers.

We always feel safe when in the drivers hands be it here in UK or overseas, of which we have done both. We have used Woods on several occassions and never been disappointed.

We have travelled to Egypt, Brugges, Germany and to the theatre in London to name but a few. We have a trip booked for the end of April to see "The Jersey Boys", and we are taking along friends who have heard us sing the praises of "Woods Travel".

It is a delight to sit back and relax en-route, before stopping off somewhere for a coffee/wine break and it makes the whole experience of travelling with "Woods" most enjoyable.

I highly recommend them for any forthcoming award.' J & JB of Selsey West Sussex
'Hi, I just want to say thank you for the no worries, no stress trips I have been on with you. As my hubby can’t really drive very far afield due to his heart condition it means I miss out sometimes.

I’m not a fan of driving any distance alone so when I fancy a little jaunt, I browse the Woods List and always know I will be in safe hands, will be in the company of friendly people and get the best service possible.' AE of Bognor Regis, West Sussex
'I would like to thank you for organising the excursion to the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 24th November for Classical Spectacular. It was wonderful. The seating was very good as well. We were waving our flags, singing and clapping to the music just like the Last Night at the Proms; jumping out of our seats when the cannons were fired for the 1812 overture. Brilliant afternoon. Looking forward to next year's performance.' PH of Midhurst, West Sussex

Wishing you all a pleasant week.'

Thank you to everyone for such a lovely relaxing day.' JB of Bognor Regis, West Sussex

'Once again a big thank you for a wonderful day out to the theatre in London. Your driver T was first class and is a credit to your firm.

Incidentally, he was our driver in December when we went to Trier, Germany when we visited the Christmas Markets. Everyone on the coach commented on what an excellent driver he was and how everyone felt safe in his hands. He received a round of applause towards the end of the journey.

This was our 4th trip with Woods and on every occasion we have received a first class service. Once again, thank you.'
