Hi John,

This is just a quick email expressing our gratitude as a school for all your help organising our trip on Friday.

The service we received from Celtic Horizon Tours was excellent and we would have no hesitation to recommend yourselves to other organising teachers. 

We would also like to thank the two bus drivers from Bartons, Maurice and James. Their professionalism, humour and kindness to our students was evident throughout the day.

We would be grateful if you could forward this email on to the relevant people.

Many thanks,

Gary Evans & Adrienne Bolger.

Just to express my sincere thanks on behalf of my husband and son for a wonderful memorable trip on their first trip to Manchester with your company. (Manchester United v Swansea City) The seats at the match were just excellent, with everything so well organised. We’ll definitely be booking with your company again, and will recommend you to all our soccer fan friends!

Best wishes

Hi Jenny,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much for allocating really great tickets to me for last Saturday’s game (Man Utd v Southampton). My brother and I were seated behind the goal in the disabled access area and it was brilliant. The coach driver was really nice too and would get on the microphone every so often to give his passengers little trivia titbits when we would be passing through different areas on our journey through Wales and England. We really enjoyed the trip and this Friday I will be travelling with my two brothers to the Utd v Derby County FA Cup game, so I am also really looking forward to this trip.   I will continue to purchase from CHT going forward for Utd games at Old Trafford as the service is second to none.   So thanks again, Happy New Year to you and all the staff at CHT and here’s to a great year ahead travelling with your wonderful company.

Hi Lorraine.

                    Just wanted to send you a quick email re yesterday's trip..I've been going to Old Trafford since 1979 primarily under my own steam as we have use of season tickets that we get plenty of opportunities to use but I've also gone on excursions with Tour companies and I'm sure I've been on quite a few with ye.

         I don't normally do this but I feel the driver that took over our coach yesterday at Dublin Port deserves special praise.He was most definitely the most pleasant and helpful coach driver I've ever had the pleasure of travelling with.Friendly,approachable and amusing he was a pleasure to have in charge.I'm sure in yere business ye will always have people sending ye complaining emails (I deal with the public everyday in the events industry and I know full well how petty a lot of people can be)but I also feel that credit should also be given when its due and with this driver and gentleman it certainly is.He actually got a round of applause from the people on the bus this morning and I don't actually remember that happening before and I would hope you would forward this email to him to express my thanks again.And thanks again for another well run trip yereselves.

 

                         Thanks John..

Hi 

I just want to send you a email because people are very quick to complain about poor service and never compliment good service. I was at Liverpool last night with my son for his first game and I can't thank Celtic horizons enough it was really great value and a really great package thanks for making my boys first trip such a memorable one 

All the best

Hello, I want you to know that Michael and I had brilliant time at weekend of Emmerdale tour that this company set up. We enjoyed every minute from the start at pick up and drop off. The driver John Murphy is fantastic and has great patience for old, younger and us who are deaf and we felt privileged to be fitted in. I also want to thank lot of people that were in the same coach as us. Too many names to mention. I have made friends with Sandy Mc Sweeney and her beautiful Mum, it will be a life long friendship for us. So it's hats off to Celtic Horizon tour for setting up the trip and we hope they will organise more trips for us.

Kathleen O'Brien

Jennifer, the lads that went on this trip wanted me to contact you to say that the seats at the match were fantastic. They actually couldn't believe the view and the hospitality area, and they have been to tons of different stadiums. The hotel location was perfect, the staff were great and the hotel itself was clean and conformable.  They pass along their  thanks. They enjoyed the whole experience and would definitely use your company again in the future.

Regards,

Elaine.

Just back from a great trip to see Man Utd vs West Brom. It was the first time we had booked with your company and I was very impressed from the start.  The employees that work for your company were very helpful in helping me organise this trip for me with my brother who has autism.  Every time I emailed them they would get back very quickly with a response. The match tickets arrived a four days before the match which was great.  The hotel we stayed in was a fantastic hotel and only 3 minutes walk from the airport.  The hotel is worthy of five stars and the staff at the hotel were very friendly.  The seats at Old Trafford have been the best I ever seen for a match.  I usually travel with another company but it is safe t say I will be using your company in the future.

Thanks

Just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with your company. We travelled to see Liverpool game on sun 12 march.  The two drivers Anthony and Gerard I think were their names were two absolute gents and were beyond patient and accommodating when people were late back to the bus. It was a great trip and one I hope to take with your company again.  Very professional and very good value for money for the experience we had Jacinta and Ronan Murphy

Jacinta Murphy

HI John  Just to advise that I travelled with Celtic Horizon tour to the above fixture last weekend – there were 2 adults and 2 children in the group.  I wish to compliment your Company on the organisation of the tour and the hotel accommodation – it was perfect.  Above all I would like to compliment the driver on the bus for this trip – his professionalism and attitude went far beyond the call of duty.  There was a vast mixture of people in the group from families, to older people, to young guys travelling and overall everyone was well behaved and courteous to fellow travellers. There were however three guys who were drinking alcohol on the bus and gave your driver jip – however he dealt with this situation in a firm manner to the extent that these guys were like lambs for the remainder of the two days. We travelled with a 10 year old and a 9 year old and our seats at the match were magnificent.  I wish to thank you, your driver and your Company for making this trip so special for my family.

Sincerely

Lorraine O’Connor

Helen Walsh here.  Our party of 4 went on the Evoke Soaps Tour last weekend with your goodselves.  I would like to congratulate Celtic Horizon Tours on what was a fantastic weekend.  From start to finish everything ran so smoothly and I must say what a superb coach driver you have in Ken.  He was outstanding and went over and above to ensure all his passengers were looked after.  The Holiday Inn in Bolton was fabulous and the food & drinks were great.  The actors from Coronation Street were superb (although I was a little disappointed myself that I didn't meet Shane Ward - lol - maybe next year).  I am looking forward to travelling with your company in the not too distant future and once again please pass on my thanks and regards to the whole team who organised this wonderful weekend.

Kind Regards

Helen, Jenny, Rachel & Barbara (Walsh - Party of 4)

Ford Mustang Drive Experience, I just want to let you know how much I enjoyed my recent trip on "Route 66" which I have been dreaming about all my adult years (I am now 61 years old).   I saw my opportunity when I read an advert from Celtic Horizon Tours and I seized the moment.  Well it turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made.  I and 18 other people met in Dublin, Ireland and flew to Chicago, Ill. where we picked up our brand new Ford Mustang Convertables 10 in total and drove west.  It was to be the best experience of my life.  The entire party of 19 only met in Dublin Airport for the first time on what was to be the adventure of a lifetime.  

The wonderful thing was we all got on so well together and thanks to Celtic Horizon Tours the adventure was planned down to the very fine details.  On our 13 day trip we stayed in 10 different hotels and each hotel was top class with no check-in all we had to do was collect our room keys and proceed to our room.   This was much appreciated after a long and very very exciting days driving.   I saw so many amazing sights and visited many many iconic places too many to even start mentioning and all under the guidance of Celtic Horizon Tours which meant we missed nothing on "Route 66" as our leaders knew every meter of the way which ensured we saw all that was to be seen.   We also were supplied with Sat. Nav.s for those of us who wanted to do their own exploring and every hotel we stayed in was already programmed into the Sat. Nav. so there was no danger of getting lost or not finding our next hotel.  

I drove the entire trip myself and I never felt alone or in any kind of danger as I followed the lead car most of the way.  I saw many sights each day with every day presenting me with more and more jaw dropping moments.   Just when I thought it couldn't get any better it did.  I drove through 8 different states, 4 different time zones and approx. 4,000 kilometers.   I just want to thank Celtic Horizon Tours for this amazing trip and for their attention to detail all of which gave me the most exciting journey I was ever on.

The Soaps Tour,  Hello - myself and the 21 ladies would like to say a massive thanks for this fantastic tour - we had a fabulous weekend and soo worth to visit. Met Dean Fagan aka Luke the mechanic. Everything was so great. From the Dublin Deaf Association.

Ford Mustang Drive Experience. When I won this holiday with Ford I never anticipated what was before me on this journey of a lifetime. To say that this is a bucket list completely is an underestimation on my part. I never thought that such an experience could be so wonderful and all the organisers made it just brilliant. The experience is far more than this journey and as Tony Toner said it's a lifetime to get here and a lifetimes memories that I have . Thank you from the bottom of my heart guys.

Gerry Nolan

Just home from doing the SOAPS Tour it was Fantastic........I would Highly Recommend it, We did spend a lot of time on the coach so stiff legs all round! We met Dean Fagan aka Luke from Corry really nice chatty guy..... Food & Drink is expensive on the Ferry! Hotel was really nice Tommy our Driver so nice THANK YOU

“First of all the trip was awesome and mind blowing ….Definitely the trip of a life time …. Worth every penny (or cent :) )   The tour guide was excellent and even if we called her Sargent Lala, her enthusiasm and love of the environment added to the whole experience.  The tour would not have been the same without her.  And of course we can’t forget our support driver - Stefano - a great guy and nothing was too much to make our trip as easy as possible.” – Dan Rea & Catherine Kelleher

I have just returned, with my wife and a couple or family members from the Coronation St./Emmerdale Tour, beginning on Friday 17 Oct and I have to say it was a very pleasant and enjoyable trip. The bus driver, Wayne, was the most courteous, helpful and efficient driver I have had the pleasure to travel with in many years. In fact, I would go so far as to say he was the reason we all had such a great time. He was always punctual and his good humor cheered us up for the whole trip. Thanks again and we will definitely avail of your services again in the near future.

Best regards,

Hi John

Sharon here from last weekends Coronation Street Trip. 
Just a quick feedback on how we got on.
From start to finish it was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Everything was so well organised down to the booking.  I had alot of queries in the beginning so with calls and emails I kept ye well busy! Good customer services is well and truly alive in Celtic Horizon Tours!
We enjoyed absolutely everything, the hotel was really nice and the weather was great too.
Can I just mention our bus driver, I cant remember his name, it might have been Tommie.  He was a Cork man with dark hair. He was just great! No wrong turn anywhere!! Meticulous with time and such a friendly nice guy. The perfect bus driver!
Thanks very much for a great trip and I really hope to be booking with ye again very soon. 
Being a parent with 2 small kids, Id love to see more family outings, peppa pig world, cadbury world etc!

Thanks again John
