"I am writing to say how grateful I am due to Gareth and Marc in supporting the success of the trip.  They were approachable and friendly to school staff, Rockley staff and to students and worked hard to ensure the students had the best experience possible.  I can not speak highly enough of both of them.

We are booked in with PGL to go skiing on 27 March 2015 and back again to La Rive with Rockley on 23 August 2015 and I hope we are able to work with Gareth and Marc again."

"My family and I were unfortunate enough to be on the Roberts tour bus which broke down in France but managed to limp onto the ferry and become stranded at Dover.

Fortunately two of your drivers, Paul Tillet and Mark Bowden, saw the problems our driver was having and offered to transport all the passengers to Services just outside of London, where Robertson's met us within five minutes of arriving.

I would like to thank those two young men, for the kindness and consideration they showed to all of us, we were all tremendously grateful to them. They are both a credit to your company."

"I have just returned from a trip to Germany with my swimming club and I must commend our driver, Ian. He was fantastic and participated with the club. We really enjoyed our trip and appreciated him getting involved- it is unusual to have such a helpful and knowledgeable driver. Thanks to Ian and the company."


"I was leader of a group of pupils and staff who travelled to Paris between 27th March and 1st April. We were met at Southend airport by our driver, Dave Ketely, who accompanied us throughout the trip.

I have travelled on more than 30 school trips, most of them involving coach travel. I think I can say that, without exception, Dave was the best driver I have encountered. Thoroughly professional in all aspects, he managed to negotiate the often horrendous Parisien traffic with complete equanimity, got us to our destinations in good time, was unfailingly helpful, good company, and an invaluable source of judicious advice. Not only that, the pupils took to him in a way that isn't always the case on these trips.

We will be returning to Paris with another group between the 20th and 25th of June. I'm not sure what arrangements Ferryhill have made, but if Galleon Travel are to be our coach company, I would be more than happy if Dave was to be our driver. That, I think, is the best testimonial I can offer. I think that Dave himself would be happy with that arrangement as well!

Please pass on my thanks to Dave for his contribution to what was a very enjoyable trip."

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for helping us out at short notice last week after being let down by a now well known coach brokers company!!

Jane in sales was a great help over the phone when I made the initial enquiry and was quick to call me back as promised with the information I wanted to hear.

On the day, our coach driver Ian turned up on time and throughout the whole day he was a massive help, we couldn't have asked for better service.

Even though we are based in Portsmouth, the fact you came out of area to help us was much appreciated.

I would definitely recommend Galleon Travel and use them again."
