Vintage Bus & Classic Car
It was the perfect day. Weather was great, venue (the Painted Hall at Greenwich Naval College) was breathtaking. The RouteMaster Bus just put the icing on the cake. 50 Americans were blown away when presented with their travel vehicle. With Laura and Charles ‘ names on the front of bus, we formed a procession through Greenwich along with a vintage Rolls and a Limo. Most of the tourists in Greenwich were taking photos of the bus and giving us a round of applause. Jennie was extremely helpful and I would highly recommend the RouteMaster.” Maureen gave us 5 out of 5 too!

Can I take this opportunity to say again another huge thank you for the service you provided at my daughters wedding last week. People have not stopped talking about the buses all week. The children were so excited to ride on a big red bus that the parents had a real chance to sit back and enjoy and it gave guests a chance to mingle and get to know each other a little better before arriving at the venue With scaffolding at the front of the church they also made a great back drop to many of our photos, I attach a few that have been posted on facebook but I’ll send more through when we get the official photos back.

Well what can I say! Thank you so much for helping Stephen and Martin’s day a BIG success. Your timing was absolutely perfect, to get us from Benington to Tower Bridge in time to see them arriving by speedboat was absolutely amazing. It really added to the wonderful day. Then you got us back to Benington on time for the Celebration in the Country.
The bus was surprisingly comfortable, I thought being an old bus it would be rather bumpy but I didn’t spill a drop of champagne!!!!!

As a British wooden toy designer (with a French name and owner!) – we were very excited to hire a Routemaster bus because we make a wooden toy version (complete with Boris the bus driver).

Planning via email & phone was easy and straightforward. They advised with the route planning to fit in with what we were interested in.

We made use of the Champagne Service & pre-ordered bubbly & water from their local Majestic – which was delivered to Routemaster – ready chilled with plastic flutes when we boarded the bus.

Using their help we got a great Blue Badge guide (with a microphone) to give us a fun & interesting bus tour for our UK & international guests, with stop offs as requested (we even had a 90 minute stop off at the Tower of London).
Together with Dave on the door & Chris in the driver’s cab we were very well looked after.

All very punctual & they were flexible too.

To celebrate our company ‘s 20th Anniversary we created artwork for the advertising boards – so it really felt like ‘our bus’ for the day.
Yes, I would thoroughly recommend www.routemasterhire.com – we gave them 5 out of 5!

5 out of 5. We booked Routemasterhire to drive some of the guests to our daughter’s wedding and then after the ceremony back to the wedding reception. They were absolutely superb. From initial contact with them, responding to my numerous phone calls and emails, providing a banner for the bus at the last minute, to letting the two grandads dress up as conductors and issue tickets and even getting them into the driver’s seat for photos, which made their day. They provided exceptional service in the run up to the big day and on the wedding itself. Thank you to all at Routemasterhire and a special thank you to Jennie, you all made the day so very memorable for everyone.

We wanted to say a very big THANK YOU to Karl, Chris and yourself for all that you did for Nick’s 50th birthdays celebrations. He and his family had a really enjoyable day – it was such a surprise for them all and his parents at first thought the bus had broken down outside their house, not realising it was waiting for them! Nick was really happy and particular highlights of the trip were going over Tower Bridge, seeing Harrods window display and the sun shining on Big Ben.

I’m going to frame the destination blind in a red frame (like the bus) and put it up on the wall as a reminder of the great day. Thanx.
Worth every penny!

I just wanted to say thank you again for providing such a wonderful service for our wedding last Saturday. We had a wonderful day and your bus played a huge part in that. The bus was fantastic – so beautifully restored and it made it so easy transporting numerous guests to multiple locations. Thank you for working with me on the route – it worked out perfectly, as did the timings and it enabled us to show off London to our guests!
The driver also drove extremely well – nice and calmly and was able to pull up right next to the venues to minimise walking time for guests who have walking difficulties, which was hugely appreciated.
Absolutely everyone loved the bus and we are so glad we hired one from you.
Since the wedding we have also had an unexpected early arrival. Our daughter was born 4 days after the wedding.

A quick line to say a big THANK YOU for ensuring everything transport orientated went to plan on Saturday.
The buses were fantastic, clean as a new pin and totally appropriate for a London wedding. It was a brilliant way of moving quantities of excitable people from church to reception.
It was great to feel in competent and reliable hands and you were very friendly and reassuring throughout the whole process from initial enquiry to final event. It was a ‘done deal’ the moment I researched you on the net and then spoke to you personally.
The final thing to say, is that the teddy bear exceeded expectations! The bride was delighted with it — and what a fabulous memento of a fabulous wedding day. It was our good fortune also to have the mistake of the front banner with their names on — and thank you for generously giving it gratis.
I would certainly recommend you to anyone else in the future.

Just a quick email before Charlotte and I head off on our honeymoon (sitting at Heathrow!)
I wanted to thank you and your driver for being so accommodating on Saturday. It was fantastic that the bus was able to get all the way to Coltsfoot.
The popcorn and champagne went down a treat and the convoy of Mini’s following you added to the romance!
If you would like a testimonial I would be happy to write one for Routemaster Bus Hire.

Wow, what an amazing day we had at Ascot last week. Brilliantly organised not just in terms of the logistics but also the mood and atmosphere during the day. Your company took care of all the details from concept to delivery and you made hosting a customer event something which we could access with ease.
I have had great feedback from our guests and I am sure that the investment in the day and it’s professionalism will pay future dividends fr our business.
Thanks again for the way you not only created the event but also created the right atmosphere on the day through your organised yet informal approach.
We would recommend Buspitality to any businesses or individuals looking for a high level of planning and delivery with an event.

My company invited a couple of their largest customers and guests to attend the BNI Chariots Ascot Day out, as a corporate event and to show them our appreciation of their business, which Routemaster Hire had organised. The day was an absolute winner and my customers thoroughly enjoyed themselves, even though it was an early start. But at 8.30am at the Verulam Golf Club when a shiny 1966 London Routemaster arrived we were all immediately greeted with a glass of Prosecco and welcomed aboard by Bernice and her driver Chris.
The journey there and back was just as memorable as a day at the races itself and can’t wait for the next one. I received this text from one of my customers yesterday: “Thank you very much for a wonderful day and please, please pass on all our gratitude to Bernice for organising the perfect day. It was my first time at Ascot and loved every minute…from the moment we were picked up to the moment we were dropped off.” – Karen Lovell PSS. These events aren’t easy to organise or run – Routemaster Hire handled it like true professionals. MSC would have no hesitation in recommending Routemaster Hire to all of their customers and suppliers.

I just wanted to thank you on behalf of 35 year 11 Sandringham students and myself for helping to make their year 11 Prom last Friday a very special and memorable day. From start to finish everything was taken care of and the whole day ran smoothly. The bus arrived early for those all important photos and on board staff were welcoming and very accommodating at all times. The kids thoroughly enjoyed being the centre of attention as we cruised into town with the music pumping and then it was on to Verulamium Park for yet more photos. What made it extra special was that they were all together and could share the experience as a large group of friends- the pictures on Facebook were amazing! I would have no hesitation in recommending the bus to anyone wanting to add that special element to an occasion.

My family and I thank you for a double-decker of an experience that transported us through bygone times of the swinging sixties and through the Christmas lights of London in one of your beautifully restored Routemaster red buses. How wonderful to see London glide by. Privileged and perched aloft- we looked down on London life; people scurrying into stores for late-night shopping or into pubs for a pint. Your driver was excellent; calmly and competently manoeuvring us through traffic bedlam. It was a thoroughly memorable occasion- Routemaster Hire Ltd is the real deal.

Lisa O'Brien's Wedding, 24.10.15
We were so pleased we hired the double decker for our wedding! Our guests were seriously impressed and loved it and we got some beautiful pics!!! Completed our white taxi wedding car perfectly. Walking out of the church and seeing it waiting to take everyone off to the reception was just so special. The personalised names on the front was a great touch and the guys on board the bus went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. We really couldn't ask for more. Thanks so much!

Tommy & Jenna's Wedding Proposal
5 out of 5. Amazing day. I proposed to my girlfriend and she said yes.
The beautiful bus arrived on time and the staff in attendance were so warm and welcoming – incredibly friendly.
We had a lovely tour of London, with our dear friends joining us halfway through the journey and we even stopped for photos near Big Ben.
All in all, a brilliant afternoon and I will definitely be recommending this company to my friends and family.

Can I take this opportunity to say again another huge thank you for the service you provided at my daughters wedding last week. People have not stopped talking about the buses all week. The children were so excited to ride on a big red bus that the parents had a real chance to sit back and enjoy and it gave guests a chance to mingle and get to know each other a little better before arriving at the venue With scaffolding at the front of the church they also made a great back drop to many of our photos, I attach a few that have been posted on facebook but I’ll send more through when we get the official photos back.

Wow what a fabulous day. We used a Routemaster Hire Ltd bus to take the whole family and a group of friends on a Tour of London. We were picked up at home in Barnet, stopped for FIsh & Chips in Poppies Camden, did a tour of all the London landmarks and then stopped at the Ace cafe on the way home. All this while the champagne flowed. What a brilliant way to see the city. All the while Jennie looked after us brilliantly. Thanks Jennie & I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone needing a great day out in London
