When a group of family friends who belong to one IT company decided to spend their summer vacation by visiting their counterparts in another states, I could not contained my excitement because my brother decided to bring me including my mom and my cousin. By the way, my brother is one of the department heads in their company based in Houston. Included in the itinerary is to visit historical landmarks along the way. The trip will take us all the way to New York and back. Their company alloted a 7-day travel including meeting their peers in all the states/cities we will pass through.
Instead of driving a car for each employee and their family, the company decided to get the service of a luxury motorcoach. It was my first time actually to ride a motorcoach. All the employees were allowed to bring their family member as well, so I guess hiring a motorcoach was the best and economical way to travel from Houston to New York. While planning for the trip, my brother told that the motorcoach they hired is a family owned bus charters and operating since 1936. In my mind, I thought we will ride on an old bus. My excitement to travel with his company transformed into somewhat gloominess.
On the day of our tour, a big bus stopped in front of my brother’s office. I heard that it’s the motorcoach that they hired. My excitement jumped for joy when I’ve found out that we will ride on a first-class luxurios motorcoach! There were more than 40 of us and we were all seated comfortably to this huge full-size luxury touring motor coach.
I love to travel and when I do, I make sure that I hit the road on style. First, aside from the reclining seats that were so comfy with ample leg room, it was also my firsthand to experience a coach fully equipped with restroom, wifi and individual climate control. And before I forget, it has also various electronics connectors where you can watch DVD or listen to your favorite music to make the trip more enjoyable. It was like riding a first-class airplane.
We were provided with the good looking, humored face driver. I would say he was very professional, safety conscious and patient. He’s a bit old already but he really made our trip fun and exciting. Aside from the very cautious driver, we also had our own tour guide. I was not able to get the information if she’s from the same bus company or was hired from a travel company. She was very knowledgeable, very courteous and accommodating to all our questions. The drive and the tour guide worked in tandem providing us not only a safe travel but almost a never-ending fun and laughter.
Our ride was so smooth and we did not encounter even a single engine trouble not even a flat tires. The motorcoach that my brother’s company hired was truly commendable when it comes to safety of their passengers. They worked hard to ensure our long travel from Texas to New York and back was executed smoothly.
One of the highlights of the travel was visiting the counterparts of my brother’s company in various states and stopping on different historical landmarks. But for me, the experience to ride a luxury motorcoach was worth the travel in itself. I highly recommend for a group to hire a first-class luxury motorcoach when travelling in numbers.
