thank you for your great service, we arrived home
Friday 3rd Sept. Your driver was very good at his job. I couldn't write
earlier as my address book was in Australia. We will recommend your services to anyone who is going to London. Again thank you, you made our travel very easy.

I just wanted to let you know how incredibly impressed I am with your car
service; specifically, the driver who picked us up from the airport last night.
What a lifesaver he was! It took us about an hour and a half just to get
through immigration, and then we found one of our bags was missing and were
further delayed by having to file a lost bag report. By the time we stumbled
out of baggage claim, exhausted and disoriented, I was convinced the driver for
your car service would have given up and left long ago. But there he was,
immaculately attired, having waited for two hours, still resolutely
holding the sign with my name! Believe me, I was SO delighted to see him! I was
SO glad I had contracted witlh your company! It was after midnight
and it would have been challenging to find alternative transportation from
Heathrow at that hour.
Please let me know if you would ever like a
recommendation for your car service. I would be delighted. What a first class
company you have -- I am beyond impressed!

Derek was a great driver and made our trip very hassle free. Many of the

for much for the thorough and thoughtful service.

appreciated the professional attitude. If we are ever in London again we

I wanted to comment on the excellent
service provided by your company. Matt picked me up at Southampton Cruise
Terminal on Saturday, June 5, and transferred me to Heathrow. Matt was on time,
waiting for me when I disembarked, handled my luggage, and we arrived at the
airport in about 1 1/2 hours. Matt is an excellent driver and a very courteous
person. Nice conversation, although I believe I was rather rude and fell asleep
during the drive as I had been up since 5 a.m. and the car was very comfortable.
Thank you for looking after me and I will certainly call you again when I am in

Dear Mr. Manning,
My wife joins me in
sending this letter of commendation for the services you provided for our
recent stay in London. From the moment you met us at the Maple Leaf Lounge
following our overnight flight from Vancouver to our adieu after taking us from
Queen's Quay back to Heathrow for the journey back to Canada we were impressed
with your professional, no-nonsense approach, blended with courtesy at all
times. The conversations during the journeys to and from Heathrow were
informative and added to the memories we have carried back with us.
wheelchair did not see as much use as we initially had expected, because my
wife frequently decided to walk rather than ride, but she often used it as a
walker to help her stability, until her knees told her it was time to sit in
the chair and leave the pushing to me! And I wonder how many of your
wheelchairs have braved the hustle and bustle of Borough Market.
again, our thanks for helping to make our stay so enjoyable. If we manage to
make it to London again in the future, expect a call from me

see you again!

Thank you so much for your wonderful
Limo Service. We arrived at Gatwick Airport on Tuesday Sept. 4th and had to
transfer to Heathrow with four & 1/2 hours to transfer but when we arrived
and going through immigration which was lengthy we had far less time. We were
asked by your driver our flight carrier and time of departure and he got us to
Heathrow safe and sound with time to spare. He was very helpful and very
gracious. Thank you again and next time we are in London we will be using your
service instead of the train system.

We just wanted to thank you so much
for the wonderful service we received from your company on our recent trip to
London. When we landed, we had to wait close to 90 minutes in the immigration
line and Stuart was still there waiting for us. He was so informative during
our trip to the hotel, giving us little bits of information about London. When
we reached the city, he even drove us around the area of the hotel to show us a
few of the sights. Three days later Richard picked us up to take us to the
Southampton pier. Again, he was prompt, informative and friendly. You even
helped us out when Harry Norman called you to find out which terminal we needed
to go to at Heathrow. I will definitely recommend your company to friends and
will call you if we are ever back in London.

Thanks Eddie for all your help it was a pleasure

I want to thank you for
meeting me at Heathrow and transferring me to Gatwick en route to Rome and for
picking me up at my hotel (and even coming up for my bag) and delivering me to
Gatwick on return.
Your service was everything advertised and testified
to by other satisfied customers on your website. It is worth every pence
As I need help walking and standing a good deal, this was
especially appreciated. It was such a relief knowing you would be there for me.
Thank you very, very much. My husband might even consider a visit to London
again, or at least a transfer there knowing how easy you would make the airport

manage for older passengers coming in from a long flight. You may quote me on
this if it would be helpful.

were very pleased with your services. Our dinner at Hotel de Vin was

I would just like to take the
opportunity to thank You for the excellent services provided for us on our

reception, lovely car, fast service and a driver who not only was an epitone of
professionalism but also highly educated and a scion in the subject of military
history! Thanks a lot for a very memorable transfer! I will of course continue

the right foot. Your service is exemplary complimented only by your
A bit of a funny story - my husband, Vince, played the
role of "Eddie" on our return to Cincinnati. The Cincinnati airport is actually
located in another state, Kentucky, just across the Ohio border and is similar
in distance from our house as Gatwick is to London. On the ride back to our
house we were sharing the experiences of our trip and of course were telling
how easy and enjoyable our trip from Gatwick (and back) had been. My husband
listened for a bit and then broke in before we were finished and said, "Wait,
just a minute. We've not done that before. You mean you didn't have to get your
bags, go to the train station at the airport, get the bags on the train,
hopefully find a place to put them for the ride to Victoria Station and then
find a place to sit, hopefully together?. To say nothing of getting the bags
off the train and getting a taxi to your hotel? You mean to tell me there is
another way to get into London proper from Gatwick?" Bev immediately told him
he'd just have to use your service next time we're in London! ; ))
will recommend your service to anyone traveling to London and will most
assuredly use it on future trips. As this was Bev's first trip to London I did
want everything to be as positive as possible and our pickup and transport both
to and from London did indeed begin and end the trip with the most positive of
impressions. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your email. I actually had been meaning to
write to you. Yes, the service was wonderful. The driver was prompt, I had no
problem finding him and we made it safely to our hotel!
I wanted to
thank you for something else, too. I had booked a different service for the
return. The reason I opted for this other service was because it was slightly
less expensive for the return to Heathrow. Well, I wish I had given the
business to you instead!
I was quoted 34 pounds for a sedan car, after
I gave a complete description of our luggage size and volume. I was told I
would have to pay the driver in cash; advance payment was not available. Well,
the day of our return, the driver appeared in a mini-van, and when we arrived
at the airport, I was informed that he needed to charge me 49 pounds due to the
amount of our luggage. I was rather taken aback, but since we did have one
extra box (not that it wouldn't have fit fine in an estate car like the kind
your service used), I paid the fare. (However, we basically had the same amount
as originally specified for my quote.) Later I felt rather "snookered." I
didn't have change for a larger bill and the driver didn't offer to give me
any, so to make matters worse, I ended up giving him a bigger tip and spending
much more than I had budgeted! I was also left with almost no spending money
which I had intended to use on some last minute souvenirs at the airport gift
It was rather frustrating. Anyway, it made me appreciate your
service all the more. You allowed me to pay up front by credit card, and now,
judging by the receipt you sent me, you did not have any hidden costs at the
last minute. In addition, you were extremely prompt with all communication and
e-mails. You have a user-friendly and efficient website and reservation system.
I really appreciated the opportunity to pay in advance with a credit card. It
made the process much more convenient.
You were definitely on target
when you told me your experience has shown that customers prefer to just pay
one flat fee as opposed to having a lower initial fee, later increased by other
circumstances such as parking. I would gladly pay slightly more in advance than
to be unexpectedly stuck with a larger bill.
Again, thank you for your
service. You can count on our business the next time we come to London. We do
hope to return in the not too distant future, as we had a wonderful

business side of the trip, the shoddy chauffeur service from Chicago to our

with you in the UK. The van and the driver are always impeccably turned out.
The service is always prompt and courteous. There is always intelligent
conversation about interesting topics. It's your attention to detail that makes
your personal service business the best I have ever encountered. Keep it

weather we had added several boxes to that original load. Allen found a way to
fit us all in and entertained the children while we were in stop and go rush
