I booked Simon’s Party Bus for a stag night for my best mate Nick Clark. Being the Best Man, I was trying to arrange a night out for Nick, Myself and our friends/work colleagues (Which is no easy task trying to please everyone!). I looked and contacted several companies, some of which didn’t even get back to me… and some quoting an arm and a leg to transport 15 mates out for a curry!
I was very pleased when I found the Simon’s bus web site and what they could offer. After emailing, they had replied within the hour with a quote that was great and you get all the extras (music, lights, smoke etc)as well.
We had a brilliant night out and the driver was very friendly, helpful and Punctual. The Bus itself was great with all its built in entertainment and was very spacious.
With an easy booking transaction and fun door to door service. I would certainly use again for future events.

We used the party bus as a taxi back from a friends wedding to keep the party going and we all got dropped off to our front doors for a very reasonable price. Annette was also superb, would def book again
By Nadine, September 15, 2014 @ 11:42 am
Thanks for a fantastic journey! Simon was very helpful and accommodating throughout the booking process. On the night our driver was punctual and friendly – and put up with a group of tipsy hens very well! (Apologies for the dodgy singing on the journey home…) The party bus itself was great fun and extremely good value for money – would definitely recommend and use again!
By Hayley, August 26, 2014 @ 1:22 pm
Just to say thanks for Friday. Everyone loved your party bus it was great.
Please pass on my thanks to Annette.
See you soon,
By Sam Martin, August 11, 2014 @ 4:57 pm

We used your bus for my daughters hen night. It was a fabulous service, fun bus really got the party mood going. Lady driver was brilliant. Would definitely use again and soon.
By Claire boniface, August 5, 2014 @ 8:08 am
Used Simons party bus on Saturday 2nd August. Was brilliant service from beginning to end, as there were a few of us all needing different drop offs in different area of Essex they were very accommodating. Annette was an excellent host to us and the bus is very spacious with brilliant lighting and music system and tv screen, just made our work night out that little bit special.
Passed on all info to a friend needing a minibus this weekend
By Angela, July 24, 2014 @ 6:49 pm
Sorry for the delay in sending this email. I just wanted to say thank you so much for the transport for my sons prom. Having been let down buy a limo company the kids were disappointed but that proved to be a blessing in disguise otherwise I would never have come across your company. From the start you were very friendly and professional and so reasonably priced. Your return journey was half the cost of the limo’s single journey! Your time keeping was spot on and the kids told me they had a great time on both journeys.
Even though I hadn’t dealt with you before I just knew the kids would be safe which is all a parent can ask for. I will definitely be using your company again and will recommend you to my friends.
By Rebecca, July 7, 2014 @ 1:33 pm
I’d like to say a HUGE thank you for the wonderful service we received for my Hen Night on Saturday 28th June.
My Hen Party was collected from our local pub and each and every person was dropped outside their house.
What a great experience and the perfect way to start and end the night, I would recommend this service to everyone planning a night out!
By Claire Pocknell, July 1, 2014 @ 10:16 am
Loved Simon and his bus it was perfect I couldnt believe the high level of service he gave and to wait with us all night I had never heard of that before. I would 100% use this service again and recommend to all my friends and family.
10/10 service thank you for putting up with all the hens on the Hen do!
By Michael Hills, June 18, 2014 @ 7:22 pm
I booked simons bus for a night out to London and the service from start to finish was fantastic. The driver was right on time and was very helpful and very polite. The bus itself was fully kitted out and made for a great start to the night. Would definitely recommend to anyone and hopefully we’ll use Simons bus in the future.
By Rachel, June 18, 2014 @ 12:03 pm
We booked Simons Party Bus for my best friends hen do and i can honestly say it was one of the highlights of the whole weekend.
Simon was prompt and very accommodating to our group and was a pleasure to deal with in the planning process. All of our party loved it and i would not hesitate to book him again.
Just want to say a massive THANK YOU and i am so glad we booked you.
By jessica mason, June 18, 2014 @ 10:48 am
Would just like to leave a comment on what a great service simon provided for my sisters
Hen do this weekend…and what a great party bus..one of the hens said it was her favourite
Bit of the night. .thanku simon
By Glenda Canham, June 11, 2014 @ 11:44 am
We hired the Party Bus on Saturday 7 June for a 60th birthday event taking place at Three Rivers Golf Club. I found the website easy to follow and emails from Simon very helpful. The bus arrived right on time and the driver went out of her way to help us. It was great fun travelling in the bus, that returned right on time to pick us up again. Thank you very much for helping to make the evening a memorable event!
By Sophie Hawkins, June 5, 2014 @ 2:33 pm
I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU from myself and all the girls for the fantastic service that we received from you when you took us from Basildon to Brighton on the 23rd May 2014 for Sam’s Hen Weekend.
All of the girls commented on how kind and helpful you were. You put up with our drinking, screaming, singing, loud music and even some stray balloons getting caught out of the window on the M25!
But I would like to say a personal thank you for helping me. You put my mind at rest when I called just days before the event date to say that I was unexpectedly still on crutches (I had hoped to be better in time for the Hen Do) and I had concerns about getting in and out of the bus, and needed to take my wheelchair with us to Brighton.
You arrived on time, and called to say you were here. You helped the girls get their luggage out and loaded it onto your trailer, and you then drove to where my car was parked and got my wheelchair out of my boot for me and loaded it up onto the trailer. You then gently helped me get up onto the bus, and did the same at the other end, including carrying luggage (and my wheelchair) inside our apartment. I didn’t have to lift a finger.
Can I also just say how helpful you were throughout the booking process and that you were fantastic at keeping me up-to-date in the build up to the date.
We have used your party bus before and we all are in no doubt that we would use you again in the future.
Thank you so much for your kindness and help on that day.
By Sarah Evens, May 6, 2014 @ 1:02 pm
I just wanted to send on a thank you from all of the ladies from my hen do last Saturday we had a great time and the party bus started the evening off amazingly well, everyone has commented on it and how wonderful it was. thank you again, I will recommend you to everyone!
All the best
Sarah (the Hen!)
By Amy, April 7, 2014 @ 8:37 am
Such a fun way to spend a 40 minute journey out as part of a hen party. Thanks to Simon for his patience with us 16 girls. Great experience from booking through to dropping us back home. Highly recommended for a fun journey that includes tv screens, music, disco lights and drinks!

We wanted to say a huge thank you for a making our Xmas party night fantastic. We have used you for the last two years for our Staff Xmas party.

I booked Simon’s bus on recommendation and what a fantastic recommendation it was! I organised a long-overdue family get together on Saturday and organised Simon’s bus to add a little extra “sparkle” for the evening. Well it went down a treat on both outbound and return journeys. Pick up times were as scheduled with no queries whatsoever. I will definitely be utilising these services in the future for any further events I organise (both personal and for the work events I coordinate).
By Karen Burroughs, November 25, 2013 @ 8:28 am

Simon, thank you so much for the transport you provided to and from Charlotte’s 12th birthday party on 6 July. You were so patient and kind to Charlotte and her friends. They loved the disco lights in the bus and being able to listen to their own music through your speakers!!! They were very noisy but it didn’t phase you at all. From a Mum’s point of view, I was pleased to be in such a new minibus with seat belts for everyone – it was immaculately clean too. I will definitely use your service again and would highly recommend you!
By Carrie, July 31, 2013 @ 8:54 am

Thank you so much for making my sisters hen night journey to Cardiff so fantastic! We were treated brilliantly by Simon and the bus was great fun and comfortable. Simon went out of his way to make us feel comfortable and let us decide how often we needed to stop and how long for! He was very reliable from start to finish and made the hen night run very smoothly. A fantastic service!
By Angela Donnelly, July 2, 2013 @ 8:11 am

Just wanted to thank you for all your help in making last nights trip to Friern Manor easy to arrange & fun to do.
The bus started the evening early for us (helped by some pre-trip sloe gin for some!) & was a talking point for the evening. Others in our party that we meet inside were asking loads of questions & obviously regretted not “signing up” for the bus!
Other bookings from the passengers last night are probable as they were all talking about childrens 21st’s, 40th & 50th birthdays coming up in the near future.
Thank you again from one of a number of very grateful passengers
By Tina Staines, October 26, 2011 @ 1:22 pm

WOW…… WHAT A FANTASTIC NIGHT!
Hi All… at Simons Minibus’s
Just a quick email to let you know what a fantastic night me and my 14 passengers had on Saturday night (15th November 09). From start to finish the service received by your company has been second to none. From the initial conversation with Helen to Annette’s willfulness to please was so commendable.
I received several quotes from standard minibus companies all of which were higher priced than the one received by yourself, none of which had any entertainment like what was included with Simons. After my initial conversation with Helen who was so helpful and professional I knew I had to book with Simon’s the added bonus was that the price I was paying was the cheapest around.
I will without a shadow of a doubt be recommending you to everyone I know and you will be my first point of call for our next outing.
One again thank you to Annette for being a great driver.
15 November 2009
Thank you for helping to make our wedding day special on Thursday 15th October.
We had a great day and were both really happy with the transport choice.
All of the guests who were lucky enough to travel with you have said it was absolutely fantastic, a real laugh and it certainly got them in the mood for a party. In fact some have said it was the best part of the day!!
10 November 2009
I’d just like to say a huge thank you- the bus on Saturday night was fantastic.
I’m ashamed to say that even though we are all old enough to know better we were all very merry and rowdy on the way home and completely forgot to tip the driver, who certainly deserved a medal for a fantastic service, how she concentrated with us yelling and jigging around in the back is a wonder!
We will definitely be using you again, if you’ll have us, and will be telling all our friends.
08 November 2009
We didnt ring you at 3am lol
Thank You for your service loved the bus and the driver was very good will use your bus again and tell people about simonsbus

We all had a fantastic time at Brighton last Sunday and we would all like to say a big thank you to everyone at Simon’s Bus for contributing to a lovely day. Your driver was excellent, very accommodating in picking us up at the restaurant and your customer service throughout the booking was second to none. Very well done.

Just wanted to thank you for the service you provided on Saturday night , it was fantastic and everything ran really smoothly.
Can you also thank the 2 drivers for me as I was too drunk to thank them and apologise if we were a bit roudy on the way home. ( I kept asking one of them to change the music and my friend told me I was very demanding so wanted to apologise to him for this)
Thanks again, will definately reccomend you guys if anyone needs a mini bus.

Thanks very much for looking after us so well during our return trip to the Charity ball on Saturday/Sunday morning.
The dvds, music & disco lights were all first class along with Darrell who was a top host! Having travelled with you before I thought that I knew what to expect BUT your newly fitted out & improved bus made it an even more comfortable & impressive experience than previously, you obviously do not rest on your laurels!
Even with only ten of us the cost represented fantastic value for money & our friends & guests really enjoyed the novelty. I’ve no doubt that we will be back again!!
Love & kisses

Dear Simon’s Bus,
I’d like to thank you for the wonderful service you provided for my Hen Night on Saturday, May 2nd.
My Hen Party were collected from my house, driven to Orsett Hall and back again once the evening concluded.
The Party Bus was an amazing experience and the perfect way to start and end the night, I would recommend this service to everyone planning a night out!
I’d like to say a massive thank you to Annette our driver… after we had left, I realised I had forgotten my Engagement Ring and she very kindly turned round so we could go back for it, this was very much appreciated.
My party and I were very impressed with your service and will no doubt be contacting you for future events.
Thank you so much for playing such a fantactic role in my Hen Night.

Thank you so much – our bus was brilliant, our friends were amazed when they got in!!
Annette was great, smart, polite , patient and a sense of humour……a credit to the company.
Made a great start and finish to our evening.

Can i just say a big thank you for the arrangements on Saturday night! The bus was so much, with its disco lights and great music system and we couldn’t have asked for a better driver than Peter who was absolutely fantastic and took the rather noisy ride into London and back all in his stride
We’re already planning our next trip, so hopefully will be in touch soon!

It was lovely talking to you, its so refreshing hearing someone so passionate about their work! Keep up the good work.
We had such a great time onboard your ‘party’ bus last summer for my friends Hen Night that we would love to book you again for mine, and for the Stags and the morning after the wedding to get us all home………! It really did carry on the party until we got home, think it would great for the boys on the way to Bournemouth to get them in the party spirit for such a long journey!

Thank you !
Dear Simon and Helen,
Just wanted to say thank you so much for everything on Saturday for Jane’s 40th Birthday trip to Brighton. Despite the lashing weather conditions, we all had a fantastic day out and a large part of that was thanks to Simon’s Bus. It was so much fun on the journeys – comfortable, sociable, excellent music and just all round laughs. You two have got the patience of saints – thanks for organising us all and making sure we got there and back safely. I will definitely recommend you to friends and hope to see you again in the future! Have a lovely Christmas & New Year.
All the best,

Just to let you know we had a great time going to see High School Musical 3 on the opening night and having your party buses made the night 10 times better. The children all loved the buses and had fun singing High School musical songs all the way there and back!!! The disco lights and disco balls were fab! Will certainly be using you guys again! Thanks for a great evening.

Hi to you All,
I would just like to say thank you very much for your help with everything for my booking we had on Saturday for my Sister’s hen night and to say a huge thank you to Peter our driver who was perfect and done a fab job (considering all the noise he had to put up with and all us singing at the tops of our voices, plus the horrid traffic and rain in London, he really was great, so if you could pass our thanks to him also).
Many thanks again,

Thanks again for the excellent trip to the roller disco on saturday, for the second year running you provided an excellent start and finish to my birthday party, and we were very grateful for the toilet and Mcdonalds stop offs! Hope we weren’t too loud and disruptive for you!
I have attached some photos for you, I thought the 70s/80s outfits might provide an amusing picture for the website!

Subject: Re: Spam:*******, Golf Trip
Hi to all at Simon’s Disco Bus,
I just wanted to thank you for what, once again, turned out
to be a wonderfully organised trip. It might sound odd for
a bunch of ageing golfers, the SLAGS (Superfluous,
Licentious, Alcoholic Golf Society) to eulogise about a
journey to and from Gatwick airport, but nonetheless.
Whilst there were only six of us this year, as opposed to
the normal eight, the bus is a great way for us to get to
our destination in one, group, if not piece…….then we
rarely arrive anywhere in one piece.
Thank you too for being so accommodating on the outward
journey, allowing us to share a bus with your family,
returning to the U.S., it was a pleasure to meet them and I
hope they enjoyed their journey home.
Until the next time, thanks again.
Gareth (SLAGS tour organiser)
I hope you had a great weekend.
Just to add to all your existing compliments we found Simons Bus excellent – peter was courteous and efficient, the mini bus was very well decked out, and the overall service was brilliant.
No doubt we will speak again!
Best wishes and regards
Hi all at Simon’s buses,
Thank you very much for the start of my night out for my birthday, everyone loved it and thought it was definately worth paying for their seat. Was great getting dropped off at home aswell in the state i was in not having to worry about getting home. You will more than likely be used again, and i can’t wait for that time to come.
Just wanted to say thanks for the mini bus arrangements. It all worked a treat and Peter was great. I hope we didn’t burst his eardrums with our “bad” renditions of the 80’s tracks!!

Thank you for the excellent service for my birthday night out on 21st April.
The girls all appreciated having a lady driver for the evening
and the rides to and from the restaurant added to the fun.

What a surprise !!
To the outside world this looks like any other mini bus, but what a welcome surprise when you step in !
Not only does it accommodate 16 bums but you have a flat screen TV, disco ball, floresent lighting that makes even the dullest teeth look bright white ! & not to forget the impressive sound system that gets you right in the party mood.
On our journey there and back the driver was friendly and accommodating even at the end when we kept her waiting for us whilst trying to round up a few of our drunken party (sorry)
The drop offs to our door was a great touch to, nothing seemed too much trouble.
I have recommended this party bus !!! to my friends and look forward to our next night out when we will be calling upon you again.
Last weekend i was on one of your busses (booked by Mr Tom Moody, going to London nd Back) and got talking to the driver. A couple of months earlier we had used you to go out in Chelmsford and on the way back i got my mobile phone out and done a little bit of filming, your driver asked me to e-mail it to you so here it is.
Hope You Enjoy it
Thanks for providing a great service!

Fran’s Birthday Trip to Chessington!
We had such a fantastic time. The bus was great, everyone loved it, the music videos were brilliant and the service was really good. Could’nt have asked for a better journey. The driver (Simon) was very very friendly and made the whole experience very enjoyable. Will definately reccomend to friends and use simon’s bus again

JUST WANTED TO SAY A BIG THANKYOU FOR MAKING A GREAT NIGHT WHEN I
TOOK SOME FRIENDS TO STOCK BROOK MANOR THIS MONTH. MY FRIENDS
THOUGHT THE BUS WAS BRILLIANT AND REALLY MADE THE NIGHT MORE FUN.
OUR DRIVER TRACY WAS BOTH FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL AND I WOULD
THOROUGHLY RECOMMEND HER!
Just wanted to let you know how pleased we all were with Simons Bus on Friday
8th December for our journey to and from Joy Fooks with the Rainbow and Brownie
Leaders. We all had a great time the bus was so clean and such great music!
Your driver made sure we all got there and home to our doors safely. We will
use you again and pass on our experience to others.
Thank you so much and wishing you all at Simons Bus a Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year!
It can be quite daunting when searching for a vehicle to transport you and your friends for that special occasion. You’ll probably be wondering:
• How well organised is the firm?
• Will they turn up on time for all the necessary pick-ups?
• How helpful and friendly are the staff, particularly the driver?
• Will the vehicle be comfortable and clean?
• Are there good on-board facilities?
If you book Simon’s bus, you won’t have to worry about any of those things. With Simon and Helen it’s like having two good friends doing their very best to make sure your special day goes without a hitch. I can’t recommend them enough.
FA Cup Semi Final Villa Park April 2006
When we heard our bus had broken down between pickups 1& 2, I must admit I was a bit concerned. No reason to be! Within 20 min we had an identical bus & were on our way! Great service, Martin the driver couldn’t have been more helpful & the TV was even better than expected. We put the limo’s to shame! I will definately recommend you, & should West Ham make another semi in the next 20 years (our average), I’ll know who to call!
Our trip on Sunday to Thriplow.
We were very lucky with the weather and had a nice day.
Steve was a very helpful person bending to our every whim.A very competent driver and the person who sat immediately behind him was an ex transport manager and I heard him remark to Steve when we arrived home ‘a very nice drive driver’ which I thought summed it up very well. Somebody when we first got in at the start compared the inside to an airplane must have been the darkened windows and the lights.
All for now be in touch soon
Saturday 18th March 2006
Thank you very much for an excellent night, all my mates thought the bus was brilliant and the driver was very friendly and accommodating.
I have already recommended the bus to another mate and would to anyone that asked!!
Thanks again the bus topped the night off!!

Many thanks for a wonderful experience, the minibus and driver that served my party that night were both top notch. The driver was friendly, accommodating and courteous and the journey a joy in that it was entertaining and comfortable.
Many thanks once again and I will gladly recommend you to anyone I know that needs a helping hand.

Subject: Thank you
Just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service you provided on the 19th November for our street outing to the Tandoori Parlour. We were very impressed with everything you offered, The bus was warm, and great fun! Simon didn’t stop smiling!
We will recommend you to anyone who needs a bus, and we will also use you again in the future! Thank you again!
Excellent service from start to finish!! From our first online enquiry to our first job, your reliability and service is second to none! On time, top quality door to door service.
I will be recommending you to any one that will listen.
Our darts team had such a great time on your bus they even debated missing the game and just having a ride about town!!
All the boys send there thanks!
Little N’ Large Family Club
I was on the minibus and thought it was excellent! I think we all did, the service was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed the music and lights. It really made a good start and end to the evening.
i would like to thank you for your service you provided, the day was great, the driver was friendly & very reliable
we had a fantastic day and if we needed a minibus again we wouldnt hesitate in contacting yourselves for future business
Just to say how impressed I was when arranging transport for 2 stag do’s not only price wise but the service provided from your company you were on time at every pick up point the Bus itself was very clean and the TV screens were a great touch and kept all the members of both stags happy which is never easy.
Since using your firm I have been asked for your contact details a number of times and I would not think twice about using Simons Bus again if the situation arose.
Thanks again for all your help and look forward to many more trips .
Your service was First Class. Simon picked us up at the agreed time with a smile on his face as always. As for the return journey, ( due to circumstances that I could have controlled if I’d wanted to, but hadn’t had a good drink for ages, so I got completely pissed ), I haven’t got a clue, but somehow the fairies managed to get me and my golf clubs home safely. Well maybe it was Simon – I really don’t remember – but you know that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the fairies to anybody – and if the fairies were busy I suppose I’d mention Simon.
We have used Simon’s Bus on business and personal trips and always found them to be truly reliable. They have always been on time and always keep us informed of any changes that may have or will occur.
I also think that having the dvd screen in the bus is a great addition as having children, it occupies their minds for the journey (if I’m totally honest it keeps me quiet too !!!!
I would have no reservations in recommending simons bus’ to anybody and they will always be our first call for transport.
Regional Manager, Penlaw & Co Ltd
Well what can i say, top quality service with nice friendly people and reasonable priced what more can you ask for!!!
Nice touch with the entertainment system no other mini bus ive been in has a 17″ screen to watch DVD’s!!!!
penlaw & co ltd
The service we’ve received in the past has been first rate. We’ve used Simon’s Bus on a number of occasions and have always been satisfied with the service we’ve received. The bus itself is spacious and comfortable with entertainment provided and the driver is friendly and always on time. 10/10
I’m quite happy to say that Simons Bus was a great choice! He arrived on time and drove us straight to the location – no problem.
He was great fun too! A lovely fella. And was there waiting outside the restaurant ready to take us home. I would definitely recommend your service to friends and family.
The service from first to last was excellent. Booking was easy and written confirmation was with me next day. Simon was a brilliant driver come host, the entertainment system on board was superb.
We would definitely use your service again and have recommended you to several people
Simon was really friendly and helpful and didn’t mind (or seem to!) for the late-comers to the meeting point. He knew exactly where to go and managed to get us near the door of the venue (important as it was a rainy, cold, windy night in December).
On the way to the venue there were 2 major car accidents en route and had managed to do a sneaky detour to avoid getting caught up in it. Everyone was really impressed with inside the bus and also the fact that Simon insisted on taking every individual to their dooron the way home.
An excellent service, Helen and Simon are really friendly and helpful and I won’t hesitate to recommend further!
Would just like to thank you on the superb service that I/we received on Sunday 19th June to the Milton Keynes Bowl.
The journey up there was fantastic due to Simon being a great guy and having the pleasure of watching the tv, and being able to stop on the way unplanned at the services.
The same for the journey home. Was really good to have a laid back person as the driver as it took us about half an hour to find simon due to being pointed in the wrong direction by stewards. But when we finally got there
Simon was just as happy as when he picked us up, and dropped us to our individual addresses.
Thanks again on behalf of all of us, for the superb service, I will be in touch shortly for your services for a lift to and from the airport.
Thank you for all the times we have used you !!
the first time being for our holiday and you got us there and back quickly and effortlessly, even after we rang simon at 2am in the moring he was still willing to get up out of bed, and drive to stanstead to get us after we got delayed by hours!!!!!!!! even helen rang us as simon was outside to let us know !! top service!!! even at 3am in the morning simon was still smileing, tv screen was great to keep the kids quiet on the way to!!
thanks also for my birthday the music was a great start and ending to an evening , even got us straight into yates with no queing as was such head turner when we pulled up!! and when simon dropped of an unarranged friend home 10 miles out of his way!! would recommened you to everyone, and we have!
we never use anyone else…thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
