Spring Newsletter

Dear Friends + Coach Travellers + Regular, Occasional, New & Potential!
Spring is dawning on our 36th Year of continued operation. We have survived 3 recessions + a pandemic and are now one of the longest established operator of coach tours in the Southeastern area.
Being a small family operated business with many loyal + long term passengers many have become good friends and originally establishing a coach family is what we set out to do all those years ago.
So, if you want to see interesting places and travel with a Registered Blue Badge Guide at no extra cost, please come and try us out for a completely different experience. Whilst holidays and short breaks have gone from strength to strength, we have reduced the numbers of day tours to try to ensure there are no cancellations.
We have also introduced our first 6 day tour since the end of the pandemic, to the Lake District and based at the ever popular Auckland Hotel on Morecambe seafront.
We look forward to seeing you.
Thank you for your patronage and Happy Travelling!
with Kind Regards
Clive Richardson
