The driver was nice and sincere. He helped us load the luggage too!
It was really good, thank you so much! The English-speaking assistant was so friendly, and taught me a lot about Finland, and we even made a pit-stop to grab hot chocolate along the way because I was extremely thirsty. I really appreciate it.
We arrived early in the morning and caught up on sleep at the airport hotel. The driver found us, as we requested, 9 hours later in the arrivals hall. The vehicle was clean and comfortable with the requested child seats present
Driver was late and he blamed it on police check on the road. However the driver was very kind, instead of driving off, when he realised that we have difficulty getting access into the apartment, he offered to help us to call the apartment management because we were locked in.
Driver was very kind could speak English fluently and made trip more enjoyable by telling stories about the city.
The driver was punctual and also gave some information about the city! I liked the trip!
