The trip to Westen Air show was a present for Fathers day and the trip was on 18/6/16 the next day we were going on holiday to Tenby so this is why this review is late. We were to be picked up on Newport Road Pontymister Risca it's the second pick up in Risca, we were on the bus stop (which right outside our house) and as I have trouble walking my daughter thought the pick up point was perfect, we wait for 1/2 hour no bus and we were on the bus stop well in advance, John rang the company and a very nice gentleman said he would find out what had happened and would ring us back, he rang rang back and said the bus driver of the feeder bus had been up and down a few times we were not on the bus stop, well we were, now it was coming up to an hour late, he said stay where are and the feeder bus would come back which it did, straight away the rude driver said it was not his fault this stop was known as Pontymister not Risca ( please look on a map Pontymister does not appear on any map, yes it's known as John's Garage Newport road Pontymister Risca but he never even came down to the end of Newport road where we were now waiting an hour, we got to Forge Lane Bassaleg where the coach was waiting and we thought now we'll get it in the neck but everybody was were very nice about it including the coach bus driver he apologised about the feeder driver and said just relax and enjoy the trip, we had smashing seats, the only thing was that the people on the feeder bus said he did come down Newport, but he certainly didn't come down to us. The rest of the trip was fantastic the driver gave us all an extra hour at Westen and said that the owner would be getting in touch with us ,up to now he as not, but we have been a away for 2 weeks. I think Phil Anslow coaches should alter the name of the stop and state that it's Newport road Pontymister Risca as Risca and Pontymister are all on Newport Road. I doubt this little hiccup will not happen again, as far as Phil Anslow Coach company I think it's wonderful, very caring staff (except one) and no doubt we be travelling with them again no problem.
