Testimonials - 2007

A very enjoyable day. The people at Macquarie Educational Tours were extremely helpful. The War Memorial as always was fantastic and informative.

All of you do a fantastic job! You are helpful, friendly and go beyond just helping with the basics as some companies do. Thank you!

An excellent excursion conducted by an experienced driver. The students readily engaged with Uncle Ron’s humour and nurturing manner.

Another wonderful, fantastic enjoyable excursion. You make our job very easy. Your honesty, reliability and expertise are immeasurable. Thank you!

Gary was very friendly and informative.

Greg was easygoing and great with the kids. Makes for a very enjoyable trip and excursion generally.

I can’t think of one thing that could have been done any better. I have been travelling with Macquarie Tours since 2000 and I have always felt safe with them. I appreciate their flexibility and friendly efficient service.

I could not fault our driver – he was great!

I was extremely impressed by the way Karen was able to fit everything in that we wanted to do and to manage alterations while we were on the road. Our delayed arrival in Sydney due to fog and the fact that there was only 1 runway operational in Sydney could have caused disappointment, but Karen managed to make changes so that we could still do it all. Bruce was brilliant in absolutely every way – very easy to work with!

I would like to personally acknowledge our bus driver Uncle Ron for his excellent management of our excursion. He added extra information for the students’ interest both factual and humorous. He made the excursion fun for everyone.

John was absolutely fantastic, supportive, patient and brilliant with the kids. He made our jobs easier to carry out.

Many thanks for the marvellous organisation of our trip to Canberra. Even with the alterations due to the hail storm, all students had an enjoyable and beneficial time. Our driver was superb – with all the children and staff – and no request was too much for Ron to fulfil. Everything went like clockwork – a very successful event for us all.

Once again the team at Macquarie have done an outstanding job of organising our excursion. Their assistance in putting the right package together was tremendous. They listen, advise and go out of their way to meet their clients’ expectations. Our drivers displayed this same commitment to service. They ensured we were fully informed of all that was happening each day, and of course, they took safety very seriously. Thank you to all the team.

Rod and Ron were outstanding! Can we have them next time?! Thank you to you all for a well planned excursion.

Rod is always so helpful and easy to get along with.

Rod was an excellent driver. He kept the bus clean and tidy for us even after we dirtied it! The teachers were also grateful for his friendly, easygoing attitude. We felt really looked after by him, especially for all the cups of coffee and hot chocolate. He displayed a caring and tolerant attitude towards the students. He is a gem! Mary was a fabulous bus driver. She had great control over the students being sure to set clear guidelines for them to follow. This also made it easier for the teacher travelling with her.

Ron and John maintained a superior standard throughout the excursion. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Both looked after the teachers and students extremely well. Their planning and organisation each day made the excursion worry free. The students related well to both drivers.

Ron was excellent – we would love to have him again next time. He was very friendly and helpful.
