Great Weekend despite the weather
Windstar did a great job accommodating our needs with weather changing our initial plans. The driver we had was amazing. He took so much pride in what he was do
ing and as a team that is on the road a lot having to direct the driver can be taxing. O.C. did a phenomenal job caring for us and our safety at all times. more »

Windstar has Great Drivers!
We wanted to take a moment to compliment the drivers for our June 9-12, 2015 trip to Branson, MO. We took two busloads with drivers Tom Purdue and Tim Welch and had a
n excellent time. They were a big part of that.
As you know, on trips like these, the bus drivers can help set the tone for the trip. Tom and Tim were absolutely the best pair of drivers we have had. They took the time to learn the names of many of the passengers and were able to interact with them throughout the trip. They were very patient with us as we threw them a few curve balls along the way. They never stopped smiling!
I can't tell you how much we appreciated their professional and fun attitude displayed during our trip. We would love to have them back again on future trips since they are now our friends!

The New London Music Department wants to thank Our driver, Tom Perdue, for making our trip to Tennessee such a fun and memorable event. Tom really took the time to get to know our students and chaperones by name and was truly a part of our group! First class driver all around!

Great America Trip
I have taken students to Six Flags Great America using Windstar Lines for more than 10 years. They provide the best service at a very competitive rate. Everyone who I have wor
ked with from the drivers to the staff at the Dubuque Office have been very professional. I highly recommend them. I was provided contact information the day before the trip and again the drivers business card. The bus arrived on time and was very clean. more »

Windstar - Excellent Choice
Last week Windstar transported 30 of our employees on a 600 mile round trip. Driver was pleasant, prompt, and did a nice job even through very windy winter conditions
. Bus was clean and comfortable. Our people had a great time. Driver didn't mind helping us hook up our own music into the sound system as well as playing our DVD's.
Tip: Remember to take input cords for music from phones. Earphone jack to earphone jack cords, not USB. Nobody brought the right type of cord except the boss so we had to suffer through his music! :)

Windstar Charter Bus Review from parents perspective
Our high school children were invited to march in the Washington DC 4th of July parades in both 2005 and 2011.
Our experiences with Win
dstar are always excellent. The quality of driving has always been excellent. The professionalism of the drivers are always courteous and accommodating. The quality of the motor coaches have been excellent.
Paul Gilchrist just like all of the drivers in the past was an excellent and very conscientious driver for the Vinton-Shellsburg marching band students and the chaperones. His professionalism and sincere concern for all aspects of the trip were impeccable.His driving skills were remarkable.Please commend him.
If V-S ever needs a chartered bus please send Paul for I trust my children's lives with him. They all watch out for our kids and even delayed travel due to potential tornado's ahead. We were ver thankful.
Also, we had two kids perform with the Celebration Iowa tour for the summers of 02,03,04,07,&08. Please know and pass on that they have wonderful memories of their experiences those summers and spent many hours on your buses. They bonded with each of the drivers, who often became their biggest fans! Thanks for getting them to all their destinations safely.
Our kids took another band trip to Fl this spring and unfortunately, the school went with another company and our children were disappointed to say the least with the comfort of the bus.
Each time we meet a Windstar bus on the road, our youngest son will still yell "There's a Windstar bus!" If he could be heard, he'd be your best advertising tool.
Thank you
Marty and Connie Ternus

Windstar has been an awesome motorcoach company to work with. They are prompt with price quotes and honor our request for a certain driver. My clientel
