OK, we admit that not all tours happen as expected but we have a pretty good hit rate. Check out what some of our customers are saying about Jumbocruiser...
Mark Cappelen-Eitzen (Tour Manager for Aviv Geffen) said
"I have been with a few bus companies in the past but the combination of Russ, Don and the bus is a winner. The band are very comfortable sleeping on the bus and have all commented on the smooth driving. It is not always like that. We have compared the driving with other tours where we all of course have a story to tell of buss woes. As you know, I needed a great combination of crew and transport to meet the bands high expectations. I think we surpassed that. As a TM, I have had an easy time"
Joel Stanley (TM for Gorillaz Sound System) said
"Thank you to Steve and all the guys at Jumbocruiser who made our 2 day Eastern European tour so much better than it already was Tim and Phil were amazing drivers without a single complaint from any of the band or crew with an amazing knowledge of the bus and the ins and outs their timing was perfect to and from each gig, the beds were comfortable, the entertainment systems were spot on, the layout of the bus worked well for everyone and the Megaloader space saved us time and money with road freight options. Thanks again and look forward to doing business with you in the future"
Rocko Reedy (Production manager of Def Leppard) said
"Everything is going great here. We all LOVE the buses and the drivers. I must say that the pictures on your web site don't do them justice, the busses are the best I have ever ridden in for a European Tour. Thank you so much!"
Alan Sullivan (Tour Manager for Moby) said
"Tour went really well, Tim's a star, and everyone liked the bus"
Ryan Westbrook (Tour Manager for Brendan Benson) said
"I'd like to sincerely thank you and our driver Don Stuart for making our European tour such a comfortable and enjoyable experience. Don provided us with an exceptionally smooth ride each night, allowing for much needed rest for all. And he kept the bus in immaculate condition, washing dishes, making beds, and cleaning the entire bus every single day. He also looked after us and taught us many valuable lessons about touring abroad. We thank you both for a great tour and look forward to working with Jumbocruiser and Don in the future."
Stephen Shaw (Tour Manager for Kid Rock) said

Alexandra Burke (Singer (quoted in a UK national newspaper but it was our bus)) said
""The bus is amazing man. I've got a bedroom to myself plus beds for guests., and there's a downstairs level with a SingStar, Playstations, TV, DVD Player, and a fridge load of wine - and it's good wine too! I just love that bus ! On Sunday I had the day off and just spent the entire day in my pyjamas, chilling on the bus. I miss it when I'm not there and whenever they try and fly me somewhere I'm like "Nooooooo! My bus! I want my bus!""

"Hi Steve. I just wanted to drop you an email to tell you how amazing your 3 drivers made the tour for myself and everyone on it. I have never had a tour where everyone has being so nice and understanding. The banter was great, never any issues, everyone got on well.
I worked it out last night and over the past 6 years I have being touring I have had out over 35 bus tours and I have never worked with a bunch of guys like Ian, Phil and Don.
The tour itself was great and my guys have an awesome time, but this was just backup by your amazing people you have working with you Jumbo is a definite winner in my books, I have never slept so well on a bus or dealt with nicer people in my life. Thanks Steve"
SaintSavious (Artiste - Groove Armada) said
