Ideal Charter Bus Reviews


I just wanted to reach out to you regarding our rental of your Coach on Friday, May 1st. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Everything worked out perfect for our transportation needs on that night. Nick was an awesome driver, and ALL of us on the bus marveled at his driving skills in Chicago ☺ I cannot say enough about Nick being there in a timely manner, his professionalism and courtesy to all of our guests. Renting this transportation made all of our guests more at ease being in Chicago, and not having to worry about parking, directions and being on time for the Rehearsal / Rehearsal Dinner. Again, thank you for a job well done!!

Thanks so much for all your help with our tour. All the participants liked the service of your company and we are glad that everything went very smoothly. The bus itself worked great for our group size and we really appreciate the bonus day with large bus to drive us to the airport on the last day. We would like to tell you how we enjoyed having Frank Sheldon as our driver. He was always on time, keeping the bus clean and having water available all the time for everyone. He was extremely friendly with the group, even though most of the participants could not speak English. I would definitely recommend Frank and your company to anyone looking for similar services and will certainly look to Ideal Charter and Frank for our tour next year.
