Tactics have supported my company over several years and in that time I’ve found their service to be competitive, professional and with that personal touch that makes all the difference. Highly recommended

Thanks to Team Tactics for organising a great day for us. The Blue Ribbon Room and the service offered was excellent! The day lived up to all expectations. The ability to have access to all of the facilities in the Queen's Stand (i.e. the winner's enclosure, the course, proximity to the winning post and the parade ring) made it an extremely enjoyable occasion. Bumping into Queen and Wills & Kate, and our luck in picking 4 out of 7 winners, is not of course something Team Tactics can ensure for every one attending – but maybe someone else will get as lucky as we did next time. It was great day out in all regards.

The day went well and overall we were very happy.
The food and bus arrived on time and both people were polite and helpful. It was good that I had the contact details of each even though they were not needed as it gave me peace of mind.
The food was actually better than expected and there was lots of it.
I think our management team was slightly disappointed that it wasn’t slightly more ‘executive’, some of the people in our enclosure made it feel slightly more like a summer party than a day at the races. BUT I understand this was probably due to a lack of understanding of the types of different enclosures at this type of race as we’ve not been here before and also costs.
The other slight pain was that our organiser went on holiday the week before (I’m not saying they shouldn’t be allowed holiday, that would be very mean!!!), but that their colleague who was trying to be helpful actually gave us some information that was misleading but this was cleared up by our organiser the first day they were back.
Also, we got there really early!!! So we were hanging around for ages!
I should stress that we did really enjoy the day and we were happy, but the above were the bits where possible improvements could be made.

Glad to know you were happy with the event overall, the atmosphere in the Upper Tattenham is very difficult to predict as this is dependent on other guests attending the event. We did recommend an Executive Box or Grandstand Facility but the Upper Tattenham facility was agreed upon based on cost and the desire for something a bit different; however it is very useful to have client feedback regarding experience of the facilities. We try to ensure that all our team our as well as informed as possible in order to cover absent colleagues. Sorry you had to wait around initially although we always allow plenty of contingency time for traffic and other unforeseen factors.
