Just a few lines to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to The Lake District. The Skiddaw Hotel was very comfortable and the food good. We met some very nice people, especially Jean and Linda with whom we shared our table. You and your team looked after Group very well.
Shirley & Derek Bye – 2018 Lake District
Ian, Many, many thanks for a great holiday. The organisation seemed second to none. Don’t know how you managed to get so much fitted in. Couldn’t fault anything. Well looked after in the hotel, good company too. Thanks too to Richard and Dawn for all their support and last but not least to our excellent driver Alison
Margaret Gallant – 2018 Lake District
Thank you IC Travel team for a lovely holiday. Everything was so well planned. The itinerary was busy, very interesting and included free time . I have tried to identify my favourite day but I really did enjoy everything. Being served coffee,tea and biscuits just at the right time was really appreciated. I look forward to another holiday with IC Travel.
Michelle Tracy – 2018 Lake District
First time we have travelled with you and we have had a fantastic experience! The bus was comfortable, driver (owner) very knowledgeable and accommodating-will definitely be having more excursions with you in the future. Looking at the variety of trips available there is something to appeal for everyone at such competitive prices.
Charlotte Newstead – 2018 Springfields
Just to say thank you for organising the trip to the Royal Air Force Concert at the Royal Albert Hall. It was as usual a smooth well organised event. We always enjoy travelling with you as we know your attention to detail is second to none. Alison was a wonderful confident and competent driver and to have the front seats was a bonus and very much appreciated.
Dorothy Head – March 2018 Royal Albert Hall
Just to say very many thanks for the speedy & efficient journey home on Tuesday night. It really was good to get home with someone else doing the driving!
Jean & Stuart Lawrie – 2018 Heathrow
Just a note to thank you and Alison. We had a lovely day out yesterday. We’ve not done many coach day trips but of those we have, yours has been the best. Really friendly, personal attention and what a lovely driver- still smiling after a long day driving. Thanks again and we hope to do another with you.

Christine Hodges – 2018
*****Just returned from a 5 day break at The Lake District. Travelling with Ian and his team, who were kind and caring, made the whole experience a holiday not to forget. Every day was well thought out and varied to ensure we went home with a good flavour of the beautiful Lake District. Ian had chosen an excellent hotel, we couldn’t fault it in any way. Thank you Ian and we look forward to many more trips with you.
Ros Self – 2018 Lake District
Just to say how much I enjoyed my holiday. Everything you organised was done so well and went so smoothly. I felt well looked after and safe with you. How nice Dawn and Richard are and Alison was a superb coach driver. I couldn’t fault the Skiddaw, the staff were excellent. Margaret and I had beautiful comfortable rooms and she sends her thanks also.
Sheila Wilkinson – 2018 Lake District
“I have travelled with this company several times and have several more booked. The reason being, it is the best coach travel in my experience and I am a retired person of a certain age. A local departure point on a comfortable coach with allocated seats. Travel documents with full instructions on arriving at the coach. Friendly courier who serves drinks on inward and outward bound journeys. Toilet is on board and comfort stops on inward and outward journey.”
Jackie Smart, March 2017
“Just wanted to say thank you for a very well organised and stress free trip to Wembley to see Andre Rieu on Tuesday. It was my first time of travelling with IC travel and I would certainly recommend it to friends and family. Ian looked after us very well and was pleasant and helpful. It was great to park so near to the Wembley Arena and near to shops and restaurants. The show itself was brilliant. My friend and I have already booked another trip in the Summer.”
Heather Kilgour, March 2017 Andre Rieu
“This is the second time we’ve used IC Travel and will continue to do so and have already booked another trip. Dream girls was Fantastic and our trip was so easy. Hopped on coach at the end of our road then hot and cold drinks available on the coach not forgetting the complimentary biscuits. A stop at Birchanger on the way there and on the return journey. Bus drops off near the theatres giving time to have lunch and a little bit of shopping. Seats in the theatre were really good. Bus picks up outside theatres for return journey. Overall a fantastic service and easy trip to London without the stress of trains and the underground. Ian provides an excellent service.”
Rachel and Paul, March 2017 Dream Girls
“Great trip. Great driver and host with the lovely touch of hot drinks and complimentary biscuits. My first time travelling with ICT but it definitely won’t be the last. Thanks for such a stress free booking and day out.”

V Thirtle, February 2017 London Museums
“This was a very well organised excursion to London to see Dream Girls. Pick up at Thickthorn for 4 ladies and also one pick-up at Attleborough went very smoothly. A meal was booked for us at the White Swan near Covent Garden which was extremely good value for money. Show was excellent and arrangements by IC Travel made the day for us. We are looking forward to further excursions travelling with IC Travel.”

travellers and after recommending the Company our friends and family, they now join us. Well done Ian and thank you.”
Linda & David Clarke, February 2017, London Museums
“Highly recommended. This was our first experience with ICTravel and we were not disappointed. My friend and I really liked the convenience of the local pick up point and being able to park so close to the Wembley Arena venue for the show. We liked that we arrived early with time to either eat or peruse the local outlet shops. Wembley has a variety of eating places and an excellent shopping complex. Ian himself was efficient, helpful and personable and
makes a good tourist guide come ‘cabin crew’ man serving delicious complimentary biscuits. There was also a plethora of hot or cold drinks to choose from. The show itself was fabulous. We have already booked for further excursions.
Thank you Ian.”
Christine Barber, March 2017 Andre Rieu
“We would like to say a big thank you for the trip to see Andre Rieu on Tuesday March 7th 2017. The day was first class from start to finish.

Sue and Charles Poole, March 2017 Andre Rieu
“My Father and I want to thank you very much for a truly fabulous afternoon/evening trip to see Andre Rieu. It was our first time in using your company for a day trip and also in seeing Andre.

Could you please also pass on a big thank you to Roger – he did a great job.”
Julie, Wembley May 2015
‘This was my husband and my first tour with yourself and I would like to say we thoroughly enjoyed it. Great value for money, you were a fabulous tour guide and what made it more enjoyable for me was the fact that we didn’t spend hours doing lots of pick ups round Norfolk before we proceeded to London . Great views from the Emirates cable car and good lunch too.
A fab day.
Have already told others about our experience and will be travelling with I C Travel in the future.’
Michelle and Kevin Baker, Elvis Exhibition June 2015
‘Many thanks for a great day out.
The trip to London was first class throughout: convenient local departure, a comfortable coach with a friendly driver and steward serving on-board refreshments, safe arrival feeling relaxed, superb views of many London landmarks from the impressive Emirates Air Line, a very tasty lunch, a fascinating look at some of Elvis Presley’s life and career memorabilia including concert extracts, and a smooth return journey arriving an hour ahead of schedule.
We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience of IC Travel. Service and value for money were both excellent, and we look forward to joining more trips in future.’

Sarah Tomlinson, February 2015
“It is the attention to the ‘little things’ that made the day such an enjoyable one. It was not just the tea, coffee and biscuits, provided on the Coach, which in itself, was most welcome but more the light hearted, atmosphere and a feeling of unity and a ‘ happy buzz’ amongst strangers, which comes from the unique caring, almost family like qualities of this great Company and its Organiser.”
