Dear Rick, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for being such a wonderful group of people to work with. Every time I call to set up a charter bus trip with Rockford Charter Coach for our school district, you and your staff are always so fun and so friendly; you make me feel like I am one of your best friends!! At the completion of each trip, I e-mail the teacher or sponsor of that trip to see how things went and the reports back have always been excellent, I have never had any complaints.

Our journey to New Orleans was flawless and as enjoyable as a 15 hour bus trip can be. Both drivers were outstanding. Joe Mann was not only a driver but a friend to our group as well. He took the time to get to know the kids who were sitting behind him and made sure everyone was comfortable. When we arrived at the bus for the trip home I was compeletly exhausted and overcome by the heat. There was a cold bottle of water at my seat when I went load the kids on the bus, put there by Joe. He's a ve view full testimonial

This is just a quick note to Thank you for the wonderful experience we had on Thursday, August 19.  We were asked to organize a Beloit city tour for the Beloit School Districts new teachers.  I was asked to find a motorcoach company that we could use…..ofcourse, thought of Rockford Charter Coaches.  Your company was a joy to work with.  I was not able to attend the tour but the response that I received back was great!  Great motorcoach and awesome driver!

Your company is exceptional and I will be sure to refer anyone in need of chartering to you guys. Please let Don know how much we enjoyed him as well.Liz and Brian view full testimonial

Hello, On behalf of the staff from Jones Farrar Magnet School who went to the Museum of Science and Industry yesterday we wanted to send Ray Matthews a BIG THANK YOU!

It's so nice to know there are businesses like yours that are willing to give back to our veterans in the community! Thank you view full testimonial

Lisa Smits

I wanted to pass on a big compliment to one of your driver’s, Don Hornung. He drove my daughter’s 5th grade class to Springfield last Thursday from Sycamore. I was a chaperone who went on the trip as well. Don was very helpful in getting us on the road on time with a smile (can be hard when we all were up before the chickens), and kept us on time with our busy schedule. He was a very safe driver who knew his way around Springfield. He also was very knowledgeable and that helped make view full testimonial

Cliff and Mary Gaunt

Dear Rockford Charter Coach Management, We want you to know what a marvelous trip we had on your November 28th - December 1st Branson bus trip. The agenda your staff organized was spectacular. We felt we really saw Branson and what it has to offer. The driver, Ray Matthews and tour director, Laura Babcock were outstanding. Rays driving and accommodations for the passengers needs were unsurpassed (a stroke victim wanting to go to Bass Pro Shop, Ray was kind enough to make a stop there for him). L view full testimonial
