One of our most experienced team members, Les Staniforth, is now taking bookings as far ahead as March 2019 so please call or email and we'll get you in the diary!




WHAT'S THE OFFICE GOSS?

*SEP 2018*

JANE & CHRIS HAVE JUST RETURNED FROM THEIR ANNUAL HOLIDAY TO FRANCE WHICH INCLUDED CHECKING OUT A SUPER NEW 4 STAR HOTEL THAT WE WILL BE FEATURING ON OUR 2019 TOUR PROGRAMME. The family-owned Chateau des Challes is close to Chambery, capital town of the Savoie and perfect for some Alpine exploration. They particularly enjoyed the wine-tasting in the hotel cellars! If you can't wait until 2019 to visit France then it's not too late to join us on our OCTOBER TOUR TO PROVENCE. It's a lovely time of year to tour the area and you won't fail to be impressed by our touring programme, which includes the incredible Roman viaduct - the Pont du Gard - and the amazing Millau Viaduct, as well as a cruise through the Carmargue and the papal palace in Avignon.

*AUGUST 2018*

JANE & CHRIS HAVE JUST BEEN TO BRIGHTON TO CHECK OUT THE OLD SHIP HOTEL WHICH WE'LL BE FEATURING ON NEXT YEAR'S TOUR PROGRAMME! The hotel has recently benefited from a make-over and they were really impressed with the service and the decor and the comfortable, spacious lounge areas. They also loved the location - so close to The Lanes, with all its quirky and interesting shops, close to the Royal Pavillion and just across the road from the pier to the beach!

*JULY 2018*

BOOKINGS ARE FLOODING IN FOLLOWING THE RELEASE OF OUR BRAND NEW DAY TOUR AND HOLIDAY BROCHURES! Popular August day trips have included Southwold & Snape Maltings, Lincoln for a tenner, Skegness, Bakewell and Moreton & Bourton. Looking further ahead our September trip to The Shard is selling well as is the Battle of Britain Air Show at Duxford on 23 Sep. The Terracotta Army Exhibition in Liverpool is proving to be a BIG seller and Christmas at Chatsworth looks as though it will be as popular as ever again this year! Thank you for all the new bookings!

TORY HAD A GREAT DAY IN SHERINGHAM & CROMER DISCOVERING WHAT'S ON OFFER FOR FAMILIES, WITH A STOP AT SANDRINGHAM ON ROUTE HOME. Take a ride on the North Norfolk Railway which runs heritage steam & diesel engines from Sheringham to Holt - great staff and engines kept in top condition, kids loved the excitement of the "smokey trains"! Both beaches are clean and welcoming so don't forget your bucket and spade! Amazona Zoo in Cromer is great to walk around with soft play and outdoor adventure too, there's plenty on offer to fill a half day of activities here. Sandringham is looking great, the outdoor adventure play is fantastic for children aged from 1 to early teens, the sculpture trail offers an exciting expedition through the woods with the opportunity for den building too. Not forgetting the afternoon tea and ice cream which is still as fabulous as ever! TAKE A LOOK AT OUR DAY TRIPS ON 15 AUG, 17 AUG, 20 AUG, 31 AUG and 3 SEP.

*JUNE 2018*

NEW DRIVER JOINS THE TEAM - We are very pleased to welcome Damien, the newest member of our excellent driving team, and to congratulate him on recently passing his PCV license with flying colours! We're sure that notes of praise for his driving skills and his level of customer care will soon  be flooding in from our passengers!

JANE & CHRIS VISIT THE ISLE OF WIGHT, returning via the New Forest and Bournemouth. They had both forgotten just quite how beautiful the island is - so many lovely views and such pretty countryside. Jane is pleased to report that the Trouville Hotel (one of our regular hotels) is looking very smart and what a great location - right opposite the beach, perfect for popping across the road and hiring a deckchair for the day, whilst watching all the ships sail by. Bournemouth too is looking very smart, despite some temporary construction works in some parts of the town. On a sunny day it's so lovely to sit on the front or by the pier with a morning coffee - and maybe a slice of cake!

*MAY 2018*

JANE WENT TO SEE THE LION KING - FOR THE THIRD TIME! She said that it was probably around 15 years since her last visit and she'd almost forgotten what a great show it is, although she hadn't forgotten what a great opening scene it has! The costumes and set designs are brilliant and everyone should see it at least once, if not twice or thrice! Our next trip is Weds 14 NOV 2018.

SUE COURIERS OUR SELL OUT TOUR TO HIGHGATE CEMETARY. The sun was shining, in fact they couldn't have asked for better weather, or a better guide for that matter. Peter Mills really knew his history, and made the tour extremely interesting. With climbing paths, high trees and ivy-clad monuments, Sue said it was hard to believe that the cemetery was so very different from the formal and manicured landscape that visitors would have seen in 1839, the year the Cemetery opened. Our next tour is on 22 OCT 2018, book soon to avoid missing out.

*MARCH 2018*

Tory, Carol & Jane had a fabulous evening at the British Coach Tourism Awards at Birmingham's National Motorcycle Museum on Weds 21 March - and were thrilled for bring home to Maxey the award for DAY EXCURSION PROGRAMME OF THE YEAR - it's the third time that we have won this award and, as we had some highly respected competition on the shortlist, we feel it's a great honour and a tribute to all the hard work put in by our team. We are also grateful to all the suppliers and visitor attractions that help us to compile an award-winning programme.

*FEB 2018*

We were blessed with gorgeous blue skies as we toured the beautiful Malvern Hills and rural Hertfordshire on our 2018 REUNION WEEKEND. We had lots of good food and good fun as we caught up with so many old friends as well as making new ones too. Amoung the many highlights were a birthday and an amazing coincidence when due to a chance remark, one of our customers discovered that the lady sitting next to her was the little girl (not so little, now) who had been her bridesmaid 64 years ago and who she hadn't seen sine the wedding. Now that's something that doesn't happen every day! Sue is already taking bookings for our 2019 Reunion Weekend at the Buckatree Hall Hotel on the 8th FEB 2019, we are taking names for the waiting list for single and double rooms, but still have twins available.


JANE AND CHRIS HAVE NOW BOTH SEEN 42ND STREET AND LOVED IT! The tap dancing routines were fabulous, the stage sets and costumes were gorgeous and it's a really happy, feel-good show. The reviews have been great and we are not at all surprised to see that bookings are already coming for 21 NOV 2018 date.

TORY WENT TO SEE DREAMGIRLS AT THE SAVOY THEATRE AND HAD A GREAT NIGHT! A lively, soulful and feel good production about 1960's fame & stardom in American music. Hugely talented actors with incredibly powerful voices, that finished, of course, with a standing ovation! Our next date for this is WED 7 NOV 2018.
