Nashville trip 2011
Took 71 students to Nashville March of 2011 on two buses. Every aspect of our travel with them was excellent... the bus drivers were flexible and accommodating when we needed
to tweak our itinerary, the coach & bathroom were clean and fresh smelling, the dvd players worked well, and the drivers very friendly. The price we paid was quite a bit less than other Iowa bids so we were very pleased to have such excellent service at a discounted price. I highly recommend them to any group considering a trip. more »

Excellent Service!
Windstar is a great company to work with - from start to finish they have an incredibly helpful staff. The process to receive a fair quote is quick and easy and their staff is
more than happy to help answer any questions you may have. The drivers are courteous, fun to talk with, and are excellent drivers. We traveled in a snow storm for our trip but our driver did an incredible job - none of us felt unsafe because of how well he was driving. We enjoyed every part of this trip and thank Windstar for the excellent service. Our organization will definitely use this company again in the near future. more »

Unexpected United flight to Cedar Rapids, IA
My husband and I were flying to Madison from Denver on Saturday December 11. As we sat at the Denver airport watching the Minneapolis flights be canc
elled,due to a wind/snow storm, we were thrilled that our Madison flight was still on schedule. As it turned out when we reached Madison the plane was unable to land so United took us to Cedar Rapids, IA. United wanted to fly everyone to O'Hare the next morning and the entire group complained that Madison was our destination not O'Hare and we wanted a bus instead. As it turned out the bus they provided the next morning was from Windstar. I had worked with Windstar when our Board of Directors, from Denmark, visited us in April so I knew it was a very reputable company. Our driver, Jeff McNutt, was very professional, courteous and careful as the roads were still in bad condition. He said he would take his time but he guaranteed us we would arrive safely, which we did. The bus was very clean and the ride was comfortable. Once again more »

Omaha Gladiator Championship Game
I wanted to let you know how very pleased we were with our trip and our driver, Chuck. I know we tested your patience with our last minute changes but we are so
glad we used Windstar Lines. Our driver quickly became more than just our driver he became part of our team. The boys loved him and I was not surprised to find him in stands cheering for our boys when he could have been in the warm bus. Windstar not only transported the champions but are champions too. Thank you for making our trip so enjoyable. more »

Weekend Brewery Tour
From the first call to the final drop off, everyone at Windstar was professional, efficient, and friendly. The price was very fair, though not the cheapest I found. ABSOLUTE
LY a great value for the service provided - cheapest isn't always the best. I like their service guarantee and the fact that someone ALWAYS returned my call or email within a very reasonable amount of time. We were absolutely happy with every aspect of our trip. more »
