What are the Drivers Diaries?

Just like an old fashioned paper and pen diary, its all about what its like on a Crusader Coach Holiday from the drivers own perspective.
Those unique experiences our drivers come across on tour, whether they be factual, comical or historical, they make up a great deal of insight, guidance and knowledge.

The diary posts are submitted in the drivers own words and style and will be published on our diary map below for everyone to view. The long term goal is to have a diary post for every tour in the brochure.
Over time we will build up an amazing plethora of stories, experiences and coach holiday related history.

Most importantly the diaries are all about sharing stories! We want to hear your comments, questions and opinions. Just like our famous coach holidays the Drivers Diaries are all about getting together with like minded people and sharing memorable experiences.
You can directly make comments or ask questions from each Diary Post. Alternatively you can go onto our Facebook page and post a comment or question.

    Just returned from a lovely 5 day trip to Blackpool and the Lakes. Our driver “Steve Mc Coll” was great and very informative as well as having a great rapport with all of us on the coach-he had us in stiches at times! Definatly doing another Crusader holiday-maybe Scotland next year. Many thanks Steve.

      Just returned from 5 days in “Wilderness Scotland” and the driver was Stephen McColl. He made the holiday a great experience that will last forever in my memory. At the earliest opportunity I will return to Scotland for another holiday, it was beautiful. Thank you Crusader and especially Stephen McColl.

    Not sure if this is the right place to leave a comment but have just returned from a glorious trip round the Ring of Kerry. The trip was made doubly enjoyable by our driver Brian. He was very knowledgeable about every place we went and nothing was too much trouble for him. Even when the coach broke down he was very calm and kept us , and the hotel, well informed so there was no panic and no grumbling from his passengers. Brian went out of his way to make sure all guests were having a good time and he did his very best to iron out any problems in as quick and efficient manner as possible. Thanks for everything Brian.

We will be sure to pass your lovely comments on to him. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you on another Crusader Holidays tour soon.


    Had a lovely holiday to the austrian lakes accompanied by the great driver Martin, he was brilliant with us and me because my case split and he went into town to see if there was a shop to get a new one, which I thought was very kind of him.
    He looked after us the whole time, entertaining us on the coach on the excursion days out and in the hotel he made the holiday too well done to Martin can’t remember his surname, but a clue he doesn’t have much hair ha ha thanks again
