It was way back in 1953 that bus and coach operators DEWS Coaches started providing coach hire, tours and sightseeing trips for people in the Huntingdon and St Ives area.
Now run by Simon Dew (grandson of founder Ron) and his wife Debbie, this is still a family business - modern coaches of course, but retaining the old-school customer service that keeps their customers coming back time after time.
From their base in Somersham near St Ives the company operates right across Europe, and has clients including small local companies, multinational firms, sporting bodies and (in 2012) the London Olympics. Cambridgeshire County Council also rely on DEWS Coaches to get thousands of students in the Huntingdon and St Ives area to school and back on a daily basis.

The fantastic staff and cleanliness of their fleet. I love that I took school trips with them 25 years ago and now my daughter is doing so, it makes you feel safer using the family company.
Fantastic family run business that cares so much about the passengers. Operate the latest modern vehicles ensuring their passengers are drivers to the destination in the safest way possible.
Enjoyed Burnham Market. Holkham Hall was wonderful. Each room was a real wow factor.
