Testimonials and Accolades

“Your driver did an excellent job of patiently waiting as we constantly made adjustments to our planned schedule.  We received many positive comments from our guests about the classiness of the mini-coach, while we had the peace of mind that our guests could party-on in celebration and get safely home to the hotel. Many thanks to all of you at Schmitty and Sons (Gray Line) for your part in our perfect wedding day.”

“The trolley was amazing and made for some great pictures, thank you so much! Harlan was great as well, very friendly! We will recommend the company to anyone we know looking.”

– Stephanie G (Bride)


Our driver (you can put his name in if you wish) was terrific—he has the perfect temperament for this job, especially when we encountered some unexpected closed roads: one of them was actually a major intersection of Grand Avenue and he skillfully manipulated the bus into and  backed out of a bank drive-through; another was a closed road on the perimeter of the U Minn. Campus; a third was a low bridge near Lake Calhoun. Each time, he simply, steadfastly, patiently, backed out and around. Everyone appreciated him—a man of few words but great on task. Furthermore, the driver was always punctual—well ahead of schedule—and ready and waiting at all our stops. The sales and marketing staff (again, you can put your name if you wish) were exceptionally helpful at all stages of our planning and their ongoing communication and clarification made this the most successful coach company interactions I have had in nearly 10 years of planning out of town tours for Historic Seattle.  I would definitely recommend Schmitty and Sons/Gray Line.

THANK YOU for all of your hard work, enthusiasm and professional guidance in assisting us to plan our special holiday gathering.  You went over and beyond the call of duty in providing the guide.  I hope that we will have an opportunity to work together in the future.

THANK YOU!!  Thank you for all of your help and coordination getting us set up for October 22nd.  Everything went off without a hitch and we were very pleased with the service.  We’ll definitely recommend you guys to others and we’ll definitely use you again if the occasion arises.


It couldn’t have been better. Warren was great. We found out he graduated with one of our neighbors from Faribault high school. So that was neat. Warren was right on time or maybe even a few minutes early. He and the tour guide have done the tour together for many years it sounded like so they worked together great. Some of our neighbors and their friends were not expecting such plush accommodations, so they were pleasantly surprised. Some thought we were going in a school bus. Overall I would rate the bus ride and tour on a scale of 1 to 10 as a 10. We are already talking about future trips as a group so we will definitely keep you in mind for the future. I heard so many great comments from our group how much they enjoyed the day too. It was so nice to be able to visit on the ride to the caves and back again.

Thank you for all your help and we look forward to working with you again sometime.

We have had a great working relationship with Schmitty and Sons.  We have found the staff to be friendly and helpful.  The drivers treat our client as one of their own.  We appreciate working with a company of this caliber!
