Alex was so attentive and excited to speak with all of the children and grown ups. He was available at every point when contacted.


The bus was on time, good provision for stops for refreshments and toilet breaks although these were also provided on board the coach.

The Polar Express itself was just magical! We had a wonderful day with Mynt and we can't wait to go on more trips with them!
