Testimonials - 2003

A great trip that ran smoothly. Drivers were friendly, informative and helpful. Thank you.

Another great excursion, thank you.

Another great trip – well done. We will advise you of when our next Canberra trip will be.

Before leaving on our excursion I was nervous about the usual unforseen things happening, but I obviously had nothing to worry about. From the moment we boarded the buses, I felt at ease and confident. Your drivers were great in all aspects. A great time was had by all of us. I would definitely come back for our next excursion. Thanks again.

Both drivers were helpful, pleasant and great with the children. They went out of their way to make the excursion more pleasant for the teachers.

Both Greg and Rod were great. We are interested in booking our Canberra trip with you. I’ll be in touch.

Couldn’t be better – top marks 10/10!

Everything was well organised and as a result the excursion ran smoothly. Rod was great with the kids, he pointed out places of interest giving the children interesting information and keeping them motivated. Kids felt that they could chat and have a joke with him. Thanks very much!

Fantastic. All in all a most enjoyable excursion! Thanks so much for this excellent excursion. Greg was outstanding!

Graham was very helpful at all venues, and very friendly and patient with our students. Neil was excellent company, full of stories and information to share. He was very friendly towards all our students.

Greg was very professional and his enthusiasm and humour added to an enjoyable excursion.

Heidi, Greg and Rod have been absolutely wonderful! All aspects of the excursion were well organised, everything ran smoothly and teachers were informed of what was happening every step of the way. Heidi, Greg and Rod were so friendly. Macquarie Educational Tours makes planning a school excursion so much easier for busy teachers as they do all the work. Thank you!

Highly professional. Easy to work with at all times. Flexible. Gave suggestions to improve / make easier our excursion. Great!

I found Graham helpful and friendly to both myself and the students. He was a safe driver and I felt that he was able to also add information at various times that was of interest to the group.

I’d like to say that Rod made the trip enjoyable and educational. He was of great assistance.

It was a very well organised excursion. The buses made sure we were where we were supposed to be at the right times, and were there to pick us up when we were ready. No complaints!

Jeff was wonderful. Not only was he an excellent driver but most helpful and kind to the children. When the video didn’t work, he spent all of his break fixing it for us. I couldn’t fault him and would be thrilled to have him as our driver on another excursion. His commentary in Canberra was most interesting for the children.

Lennie was great and willingly did everything in his power to ensure that our trip was a success. We felt comfortable with him and knew we were in safe hands on the road. Mick was a good driver with a positive attitude towards our students.

Lucas was polite with the children and informative in his commentary. He was easygoing and helpful to me as the teacher. He made the tour an excellent one. This combined with the top class coach made for an excellent excursion.

Our driver was informative, flexible and easy going! An enjoyable trip.

Planning and flexibility before the excursion was outstanding. Heidi was organised and very helpful. Overall, the excursion was a great success. We had a wonderful time and appreciated the excellent organisation. Thank you Heidi for making changes at the last minute.

Rod was exceptional – we were advised in advance of where / what / when, we were always on time, he knew where to go within venues and he was great with the students. Thank you.

Rod was particularly helpful with assisting us with stamps for the rebate form, organising the booking for us (all we had to do was have the children ready). The cups of tea and coffee were great along the way too. His attitude to the children was excellent and he also provided some great information along the way.

Rod’s organisation made each day so easy. A reliable and friendly coach driver who couldn’t do enough for us. The cup of coffee at each stop was a welcome relief for teachers. Very professional and helpful. Heidi, Annette, Rod and Peter made the excursion so easy to run with their fantastic organisation. A fabulous excursion. Thank you so much for your organisation.

Rodney was a very friendly, cooperative and informative driver. He interacted in a positive way with the children. We would like to have him again!

Thank you for an excellently organised tour. It’s such a joy to go away and know we don’t have to manage the tour as well as the kids.

Thank you Greg & Heidi for the best Canberra trip I have ever been on. We teachers all agreed it was extremely well organised and we wouldn’t hesitate to rebook. Greg made the trip very easy and Heidi made the organising a breeze.

Thank you Greg for the service and skills you provided on our recent Canberra trip! He was highly organised in terms of the tour program and ensuring that we got to our destinations on time and according to schedule. He was flexible in terms of student and staff needs, due to the amount of sickness on our trip. Thank you Greg for your understanding and care of both staff and students. Thank you for aiding students with your knowledge, guidance and ability to think outside the boundaries to accommodate changes to the itinerary at the last minute. Thank you to the office staff for your ability to cope with my many questions and phone calls to ensure the students were looked after. I will be in touch concerning bookings for next year.

Thank you Heidi & Greg for a fabulous experience for all staff and students involved.

Thank you once again for an excellent three days.

Thank you, Macquarie Educational Tours! Our excursion ran like clockwork. Rod was so helpful, making sure the staff were aware of time frames and time limits to complete one activity and move on to the next. The coach was comfortable, and watching videos kept everyone amused on the long stretches! The teachers and students had a great time on our first Canberra trip, thanks to all your help prior to the excursion, and the thorough organisation during the three days of the excursion. Thanks so much Heidi, Rod, and the team at M.E.T.!

Thanks very much for your kindness, care, organisation, attitude, helpfulness, patience etc. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed your careful planning and organisation fort a well run excursion. I appreciate all your efforts in the office, in and off the bus. Many thanks.

The drivers were both most professional and we appreciated their safe driving and friendly service.

The drivers were very patient. A superb job. Thank you.

The excursion was perfect. Would love to recommend your company to all schools I talk to. Greg was excellent, a perfect host and driver.

The professional manner in which Greg carried out all his duties was great. The children were comfortable approaching him and asking questions. Greg also made it easier on us by worrying about getting our brochure stamped for the travel rebate! Thanks Greg!

The standards from your company are, as always, outstanding. Thank you for making life easy!

We appreciated the effort made in making changes to our itinerary because of George Bush’s visit. Because you acted quickly we finished up with a better itinerary than what we started with. The bus was fantastic and the driver was extremely professional. Whenever we rang with problems, the office staff were very positive and helpful. We appreciated flexibility with numbers varying in last weeks.

We felt very confident with Brian’s driving ability. A safe and cautious driver.

We had an absolutely fabulous time and once again everything ran like clockwork. Thank you to Greg, Heidi and Annette for all your hard work and effort in making our trip so memorable. We can’t wait until next year!

We thought the trip was excellent. All ran smoothly with a minimum of fuss – a great educational experience.

We were most impressed with the friendliness and efficiency of our driver – pleasant to students and teachers, punctual, cooperative, helpful – and we loved the coffee and biscuits!

What else can I say? Thank you!

Your response to our requests/difficulties at all times was outstanding and very patient. We loved Keith, our driver. He even got a spontaneous round of applause from the children at the end of the trip. Thank you.

[Greg] was terrific. Very approachable and friendly, a thoroughly good driver. He even made me feel welcome! I also believe Greg is highly recommended by Stewart from Noumea PS. The children really appreciated his help, advice, knowledge and humour.
