Some of Our Happy Travelers

We’ve been doing this a long time – since 1954, in fact. And during that time we are proud to say we have learned a lot. The result is that, today, we can confidently state that we have a fleet of motorcoaches that is unmatched anywhere in the Midwest, and a staff of drivers and support personnel that is second-to-none. We aren’t the only ones who feel this way. Check out what some of our happy customers have to say and you’ll agree.

I won’t use anyone else but you if I can help it. The service we get is the best without exception. You got all our charters this year.

Director, UNI Overseas Placement Service

I learned many years ago when Leonard ran the company not to skimp on transportation. We had a disagreement about cost and I went with another carrier. That was a hard lesson learned and I have never used a company other than Hawkeye since then. That trip with another carrier I now refer to as the ‘trip from hell’ for many reasons, not the least of which was the horrible bus company!

Our coach driver was absolutely fantastic.  So polite, courteous, and positive.  He had a great demeanor and was pleasant to interact with.

Your bus driver was wonderful!  He was very friendly, great with the group, very professional, a great driver and great under pressure.  When he was driving, I didn’t feel nervous at any time, even with the wind and rain.  We loved him!

Luther College truly thanks you for the exceptional service you have provided our students and their families.  Your drivers and staff were extremely kind, courteous and helpful.

Kasey Nikkel
Luther College Coordinator of Student Shuttles

Only once in my 18 years with the Waverly-Shell Rock School System have I used another bus company…That was the first trip I organized all on my own, and though the trip was successful, the bus driver was terrible. Since that trip, I’ve always used Hawkeye Stages and always will. I would recommend your company to anyone and have done so on several occasions to other band directors.

School Customer

As I had only been on the job about 2 weeks before our tour, they went above and beyond to make sure the communication needed each day was there!

This was my first tour as the coordinator for my group and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with Hawkeye Stages. Both of our drivers were fantastic – extremely professional, timely, and overall great to work with.

The 8th grade students and the staff of Waukon Middle School sincerely appreciate the great job that Hawkeye Stages does with regard to our Des Moines trip.

School Customer

Enjoyed working with Nick. He was easy to talk to and prepared to drive the route specifics I had communicated ahead of time.  Clean, reliable, and service-oriented are why we keep calling on Hawkeye Stages.
