Have used Chalkwell for many years for our Brownie outings and have always had a good experience- we only had one problem with a driver taking us to London two years ago but that was the only time. The latest trip with the girls to Ightham Mote in June was problem free and we had a very safe and experienced driver. We will continue to use Chalkwell.
