Here at Royal Coach Tours we made the choice many years ago to be leaders and not followers when it comes to the preservation of our planet and conducting ourselves both ethically and in environmentally friendly and sustainable ways. But what does that mean translated into plain English?
Simply put it just means that we at Royal Coach Tours have taken part in becoming environmentally friendly, constantly developing new and strategic business practice to promote sustainability. We understand the value of our environment and natural resources which is why we have taken part to become your Green Charter Bus Company provider.
