PAST YEAR'S FEEDBACK

LISA | *****

Had a brilliant day at the Polar Express on Sunday.

 

Everything was great from start to finish the bus journey there going up and back was great went really quick. It was a well organised trip.

Alex was great plenty of goodies on the bus we would definitely recommend and we will be booking again next year Thankyou so much for making this trip so great.

JEN | *****

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 juist magical! We had a wonderful day with Mynt and we can't wait to go on more trips with them!
