  • The Coach Driver, G, on our Cissbury Ring trip was lovely, never had such a nice, fun and happy driver. Thank you. JW of a Local School in West Sussex
  • We had the pleasure of L as our coach driver to Winter Wonderland last Wednesday. Please pass our sincere thanks to him - he was fantastic! He was such fun and so kind to the students and they have all requested he is always their driver. Thank you all once again for such great service. LG, Group Organiser at Chichester College, West Sussex
  • Your lovely driver M drove myself and my class from the Primary School to Fishers Farm today. All the adults on-board the coach commented to me what a lovely professional coach driver he was. He was friendly, professional, personable and great with the children! Thank you for a great service! VL, Class Teacher of a Primary School, Arundel, West Sussex
  • Just a note to say thank-you again for your excellent service. Everything went seamlessly and T was a perfect driver. We are hoping to do a tour next year to Cornwall and one to York and will be doing a trip to Dixter again next October. Thank you for all of your help, it's always a pleasure dealing with you and your firm. OM, Group Organiser from Ireland
  • Could you please pass on our thanks and gratitude both to T (V&A) last Wednesday and the coach driver from last Friday’s trip. T was lovely so accommodating and pleasant and made the whole trip run like clockwork. The driver form Friday’s nightmare trip again was extremely thoughtful in stopping at services which I know both the lectures and students really appreciated especially as he was driving for such a long time. S from a local College, West Sussex
  • Please could you pass my thanks on to J in your transport department, and the coach driver who came to rescue our children from the car park at Goodwood on Tuesday. I was very grateful for the time J took trying to problem solve and the solution he found. Fortunately, the 55-seater replacement coach arrived just minutes after the Woods driver came (who very kindly shared his jaffa cake biscuits!). Many thanks again. SN, Deputy Head Teacher of local Infant School, Worthing
  • I would like to thank Woods once again for providing us with such an excellent transport service for our school journey to Bournemouth. G. & K. are highly competent drivers - I don't know how they reverse the coaches into the hotel car park - but they do! They are also incredibly friendly, helpful and dependable and contribute to the overall success of the trip, please pass on my thanks. I would like to give a special mention to G. who has driven us every year for the past 9 years; we have become very attached to him, he is a fantastic driver, we love his sense of humour and our trip wouldn't be the same without him. He is a tremendous asset to the company, thank you G.! We would like to book our school journey with Woods next year requesting G. and K. as our drivers. Many thanks again to everyone at Woods. Deputy Headteacher, London Primary School
  • I would like to thank Woods once again for providing us with such an excellent transport service for our school journey to Bournemouth. G and R are highly competent drivers; they are also friendly, helpful and dependable and contributed to the overall success of the trip. During the week they became an integral part of the staff team and for this we are extremely grateful. Please pass on our thanks to them both. SB, Deputy Head Teacher of a Primary School, London
  • We were very happy with the trip on Tuesday. The four drivers were so professional and polite, and really lovely with the children. We were really impressed! Thank you. Phase Leader of local infant school, West Sussex
  • I just thought you would like to know the feedback from the trip leader. She said that the coach driver was very helpful and the comfort of the coach was excellent. Thank you very much. LBS, Teaching Assistant of a Senior Schoo, Stenying, West Sussex
  • I am writing to say a huge thank you to G and C our coach drivers on our school journey. Without their fantastic transportation, the week could not have gone on. All our journeys were smooth and fun due to their generous agreement to let the teachers use the microphone on board the coach for announcement and songs and their toleration of our (sometimes) almost deafening chat. Thanks to them our journeys were safe and enjoyable. We hope the future Year Sixes are treated to this amazing coach service. A Year 6 Student from a Primary School, London
  • I just wanted to say how wonderful G was! The staff and children cannot speak highly enough to him. Very kind and calming and seemed to generally enjoy being on the trip, our number one! Can I also pencil you in for next year (with G would be great!) Best wishes S.H of a London School
  • Dear Woods Travel, I just wanted to take the time to thank you on behalf of our school. I have nothing but positive feedback about all the drivers and I know you have gone the extra mile to secure us all the vehicles needed to make our day such a success. Please pass on thanks to the whole team. CS, Assistant Principal of a Local School, Bognor Regis
  • You took our Year 5 children to the Science Centre in Winchester. On their return to school the class teacher asked me to let you know how excellent their driver T had been. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He spoke to the children in a friendly and helpful way and made their journey a very pleasant experience. We would be grateful if you could pass our comments and thanks onto T. Secretery of a local school, West Sussex
  • Mrs G who lead the visit yesterday has asked me pass onto you her thanks for the lovely coach driver they had yesterday for the visit. He was very helpful. The day went really well and the children had a great time. W, Secretary of a Bognor Regis School, West Sussex
  • I just wanted to email to say a huge thanks for sending a lovely driver and a beautifully clean coach yesterday for our Year 1 trip to the Look & Sea Centre, it was much appreciated. School Secretary, Local Primary School, West Sussex
  • First of all can I say a huge thank you to P and S for all they did for us during the week. Their professionalism is outstanding and they became part of the team for the week. They were quick to react to the problems at Calais and the impending strike which meant we had to cut short the sea life centre but enabled us to get the children home without worry. P sorted out problems with the restaurant in Paris where they were going to charge us more. Some drivers would just take a back seat and not get involved so a big thank you to P. Both drivers are extremely careful smooth drivers which meant we had no travel sickness at all. Thanks guys. LE of a Local Middle School, Worthing, West Sussex
  • I just wanted to say that C is an absolute star – a credit to Woods. Polite, friendly and very helpful. Thank you for sending him! KS, International Social Programme Co-ordinator for an International School
  • Further to our telephone conversation this morning I would like to put in writing our thanks and appreciation for your Driver, G, who took our year 6 pupils to London to see "Wicked". Our Head of Year 6 was so impressed with his knowledge and his attitude towards the children and staff, she wanted me to pass on her thanks and she has said that if we go on another trip she will be putting in a request for G to be our driver, as he made the journey fun and interesting for all the staff and pupils. CW, from a School in Worthing, West Sussex
  • I just thought you would like to know the feedback from the trip leader. She said that the coach driver was very helpful and the comfort of the coach was excellent. Thank you very much LBS, Teaching Assistant and Trip Organiser of a Local Senior School
