Why Ride with James River

Video: Why Ride with James River

I would like to share with you the very nice experience my family and I had involving one of your drivers, Tom Reitzel.  We recently visited Williamsburg, Virginia and had the pleasure of Tom’s service.  Tom was an amazing asset to our trip and really enhanced our overall experience.  He was a true pleasure to be around.   Tom was available whenever we needed him and was amenable to our frequent changes.  He really went above and beyond expectations.

You guys are wonderful to work with. We use you every year for our field trip for K-12 teachers. Reservations are handled promptly and expertly, and the coaches are always super-clean and pleasant to ride in, with friendly and knowledgeable drivers. I have to say that working with your company is one of the easiest and smoothest parts of my job!

The rating for our driver on a scale of 1 to 10 was a unanimous 10+++.  Our guests really felt comfortable with her and loved her upbeat spirit and daily smile.  Please let her know how much we appreciated her efforts on our behalf!

We have been very pleased over all these years, and we won’t take a class trip without James River Bus Lines.

1. The sales person met and exceeded my expectations in every way. Very professional and efficient. Prompt responses and extremely friendly. She set the standard for a lot of those I deal with to meet in my mind!
2. The driver was truly a professional. He responded quickly and was very open to inputs and suggestions. A great young man with sincerity and professionalism. He represented James River Bus Transportation in a very highly regarded manner and as the only personal contact I have had with your company-I can honestly say “Impressive” is how I would explain the company and this driver to anyone asking. I would recommend him to anyone as a driver without any hesitation!
3. The vehicle and its amenities exceeded my wildest dreams. It was spacious, comfortable and of the top 5 things the students enjoyed from the field trip over half mentioned the bus trip as a highlight of the trip. It was very clean and safe. It had lots of storage and exuded comfort.

4. I would simply like to add a big THANK-YOU to all the staff and professionals at James River for their assistance and extremely courteous expertise in helping our students explore this unique opportunity. You guys are the best in transportation and you truly made it so carefree. Thank-you so very much. I will always remember this trip as a highlight of my teaching career due to the ease of booking and communications passed in helping this be such a seamless event. Keep it up!

I just wanted to say Thank You to you and your staff for such an outstanding job during our NUSA conference.  Your company and employees are second to none.  It was a pleasure working with you and I will always recommend James River Bus Lines in the future.

From the minute your driver picked us up at the Marriott Hotel in downtown Norfolk to the minute he dropped us off late that afternoon, he was fabulous. Not only was he a safe and cautious driver, but he seemed so interested in the tour our group was taking. It turned out that he was a history buff, and he was able to add so much information about the Tidewater area for these women who had come from all around the country. We all learned so much and everyone had a wonderful time.
