London operator Golden Tours has recently taken delivery of eight brand new coaches from Volvo Bus.

The coaches will be used by Golden Tours to provide high quality London tours and to facilitate day trips to other popular destinations across the UK.

Managing Director of Golden Tours, Mikesh Palan, said: “We are a longstanding customer of Volvo having ordered more than 30 vehicles in the past three years alone, including 20 B5TL buses.

“For more than three decades now, Golden Tours has been providing guests from various countries across the world with luxurious travel and an unrivalled range of top-quality London tours. We have always been proud of our passion towards customer care and value for money and we believe the expansion of our fleet network with these new Volvo B11Rs will substantially help us strengthen this claim.”

In keeping with Golden Tour’s luxurious travel experiences, the new coaches each feature 53 premium seats fitted with three-point seatbelts belts, tray back tables, individual USB sockets, footrests, leather side and headrest seat trims. The coach also includes Sutrak air conditioning, Bosch DAB digital radio and bespoke 19” front and centre flatscreen TVs. They are also fitted with a Shades Centre sunken demountable toilet

Mikesh Palan added: “We have gone that extra mile to ensure that we are providing our customers with all the luxury and comfort needed to best enjoy their tour experiences around the UK.

“The B11R is also well-known as the best option in the market today in terms of fuel efficiency and performance and this was key in the decision made to purchase these vehicles, especially with ongoing regulatory changes in and around London. The build quality of Volvo vehicles is second to none and we also know that we will get the aftersales service we require from our local dealership, Volvo Truck & Bus, Hayes so once again, Volvo Bus is the perfect choice.”

Richard Mann, Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager said: “It’s great to be working with a prestigious tour operator like Golden Tours and we look forward to seeing the vehicles in service.
Mikesh and his team have been loyal customers over the years, and we look forward to doing business again with them in the near future.”
