    Great company to travel with. Driver Paul made the trip interesting and has to be one of the nicest drivers I’ve ever travelled with. Great job Paul!

    Just returned from a Hassra trip to Scotland.
    Great hotel, excursions, and a wonderful driver called Paul.
    He was very courteous, obliging and with a great sense of humour.

    Can highly recommend Chris Cooper Travel! Our driver Alan drove us to Billingham Golf club for our away day yesterday. The coach was immaculate and very covid safe. And we all said Alan was the best most helpful driver we have ever had! And we’ve had quite a few over the years!! Thank you!
