Marino, Middle School Science Teacher:
During the week of April 3, our students took field trips to Marine Lab in Key Largo, Florida.
We contracted with Magic Carpet Ride to bring our students from Melbourne to Key Largo and back. This was a monumental task, as we had two separate groups going on and returning on overlapping days. Mr. Nauman Khan was extremely helpful in setting up the bus reservations and communicating with me up until the day of departure. Your drivers, Mr. Flagler and Mr. Fuchs, were impeccably professional. They arrived right on time with very clean buses. They were courteous and friendly to our adult chaperones and students.
We will continue to use Magic Carpet Ride for our future field trips and recommend you to other teachers. Whenever we plan trips with your buses, we can be assured that being on time, cleanliness and professionalism will always be there.
Cindy, Community Travel Coordinator:
Another fabulous trip with Magic Carpet Ride today! Group from Village Green went to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary and Loggerhead Turtle Center. Equipment is top notch, clean and their professional drivers are polite and accommodating. I’ve had the pleasure of doing business with Magic Carpet Ride for nine years!
Testimonial from Clara:
I just want you to know that I had a great experience with Magic Carpet Ride. It was my first time chartering a bus and I must admit I was nervous and overwhelmed. I spoke to Aleta Boysel who answered all my questions and put me at ease. Our bus driver, Mr. Edward Dillard, was amazing. He was courteous, polite, friendly, helpful and a very safe driver. It is very obvious that he takes a lot of pride in his job. He definitely demonstrated great professionalism. The bus was clean, the seats were comfortable and the a/c and bathroom were in excellent working condition. Everyone in my group was completely satisfied. I am confident that I will be using Magic Carpet Ride again in the future. I highly recommend Magic Carpet Ride to anyone who needs to charter a motor coach.
Teacher Kerry, 5 Stars:
Magic Carpet Ride came to our rescue today when we were left stranded at the Vero Travel America truck stop. We had roughly 50 students, parents and teachers on a field trip from Port St Lucie, Florida to St Augustine. Our school booked a charter bus with another company originally. The “other company” was 30 minutes late picking us up because the driver got lost. Once they arrived we realized the air was broken on the bus and that wasn’t the worst of it! The “other company’s” bus was infested with cockroaches, which we found out when one of the passengers dropped some Chex Mix on the ground and about 7 roaches swarmed it in a matter of seconds. We demanded to get off the bus immediately which is how we ended up at the Travel America. Feeling desperate and not knowing how we were going to get 50 passengers nearly two and a half hours north of where we were, we quickly google searched for a charter bus company in Vero. Thank God we found Magic Carpet Ride! The woman that answered the phone was very helpful and immediately jumped into action. She called her manager and lined up a driver to come pick us up. The bus was very clean, had nice floors (no carpet, much more sanitary,) the air worked and our driver, Joe, was very courteous and sympathetic to our hectic start to the trip. He got us to our destination as quick as possible. We arrived safely with no issues the rest of the day. He was prompt for our pick up time at the end of the day. I would recommend this company to anyone. Thank you for acting so quickly to turn around what would have been a disaster and huge disappointment for our 4th grade children and parents. Awesome job Magic Carpet Ride!
Excerpts from Suzanne's Letter - Customer Service Tour Operator:
We received a letter with feedback regarding one of your drivers, and wanted to pass it along to you. The customer wrote: I had a heart attack on the tour, and was treated so well. The driver was absolutely amazing, he knew I was in trouble and got us home early. The driver was wonderful; We appreciate the professional behavior of your driver and wanted to request that he receives a copy of this letter and it be included in his permanent record.
Just a few words to say how much I enjoyed my trip, it was wonderful. The driver was so considerate, polite, and did a great job when we hit a thunderstorm on the way back. The bus was so clean and a pleasure to be on. I am recommending it to my friends.
Joe was simply wonderful. He was polite, helpfull, and is a very safe driver. We hope to travel with him again soon.
Barbara - Transportation Coordinator:
Kelly, you have been so helpful and professional. Spending the time that I have on this project has allowed me to talk to all of the transportation businesses and let me tell you none of them compared to your professionalism and the ease of getting information. You certainly know your job...thanks. We want to book the bus for September 15th.
Craig, Middle School Teacher:
I'd like to take this time to say how wonderful our experience with George and Magic Carpet Ride was. I am a Middle School Teacher and Team Leader. We were planning our end of the year field to Islands of Adventure and I was having problems setting up bus transportation for 450 students, teachers, and chaperones. I then contacted Magic Carpet Ride and our transportation problems went up in smoke. Between the prices, personal attention, and overall professionalism, Magic Carpet Ride stood head and shoulders above any transportation company we've ever dealt with. We will now only use Magic Carpet Ride in the future. It is with great confidence that I recommend Magic Carpet Ride to any group that needs transportation...
Julie, Church Travel Coordinator:
What a wonderful trip we had. Our driver was awesome! We would like to reserve him for next year! :) I'll send you the dates as soon as we know. Thank you for once again being available for GBCCF!
Field Trip Organizer Testimonial:
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Magic Carpet Ride for school bus charters. I called George last May to arrange our field trip for approximately 55 students and chaperone to EPCOT. It was an easy and pleasant experience. We talked about the date, time, pick-up arrangements and within 15 minutes I received an email with the contract and the information about their buses. The week before our field trip, George called me to confirm our date! (Usually, I have to call the bus company a few days before we our trip to make sure all is ready.)
The bus arrived on time, very clean, everything working (bathrooms, a/c and televisions), and a driver with a smile! Our driver was extremely courteous and very helpful. You could tell that he took great care of the vehicle and its occupants! All in all, it was a great day. I would gladly give Magic Carpet Ride my full recommendation and I plan to use their motor coach in the future. It's nice to have a good company located right here in Vero Beach.
