    Absolutely fantastic. We were impressed on so many levels.

    The service we received from Blunden was absolutely fantastic. We were impressed on so many levels. We were impressed with the cleanliness of bus and the professional service we received. Most of all we wanted to commend the bus driver, he was absolutely fantastic, we were all very surprised by him as he was not what we expected from a bus driver. He was punctual, friendly, very neatly dressed, very helpful  and very patient with our girls.
