  • Jim Caldwell - July 2016

    I want to thank our driver-John Stephen-for the extraordinary experience he provided for us as we searched for the origins of our Caldwell family ancestry that left Scotland for America about 170 years ago. He went way beyond our expectation in assisting us in tracking down our ancestry in Lugton Scotland. He found the original family homestead, the Historical Caldwell House and arranged for golf on the private Caldwell Golf Course and topped it off with a Scottish Bag Piper playing the pipes as we enjoyed a salute with Scottish whiskey on hole number 8. What a fabulous day that we will remember for a life time. All thanks to our driver John.

    Just wanted to let you know my Mum and her party were very impressed with your driver, who drove them around on Sunday, and I personally wanted to thank you for sorting a replacement vehicle.
  • Lynne - April 2016

    Hello Steve, it's Liz from GCT. I just wanted to thank you for the Airport pick -ups this morning. Tommy was wonderful and some of my passengers texted me to say how helpful and great he was.
