Happy Customers

Your comfort and enjoyment are our top priorities. Be assured of a great day out with good friends.

“Over the years you have taken care of us and we have gone on Day Trips and Holidays. We have made lots of friends because of you. We have had so many laughs and so much fun.”

— Beryl Green

“I really look forward to the day trips and short breaks and we are often taken to places that I had no idea existed and therefore would never have had the oppertunity to visit them if we had not been taken by GoodConnections. I particularly enjoy the country rides with beautiful scenery and an added bonus to this is either a lunch or an ice cream during the day.”

— Jill Dawe

“Thank you for the pleasure that your well organised and delightful day trips and longer holidays have given me. Your constant kindness is a hall-mark of these encounters.”

— Eurice Lacquiere

“What I love the most is that when I board the coach, it is full, not of passengers, but of friends, which is all part of your personality, caring attitude and friendship. A 'Day Trip' or 'Short Break' is always a happy experience, and ofcourse knowing a trip must include Garden Centre!”

— Peter Cutler
