The taxi driver was very open to conversation, entertaining as well as instructive and took care into making the travel as pleasant as possible while driving through the outskirts of Hamburg.

The driver was there on time, even at bit earlier, he was very courteous, and he arrived in Dubai well ahead of time whilst always driving carefully and observing the speed limit. The car was spacious and clean. So, all in all it was a very positive experience. D. Fuehrer
The driver was on time. He was easy to find. He was very helpful with the bags both at pickup and the destination. He knew where he was going and the vehicle was more than adequate for 4 people. What more could we ask for, very pleasant experience overall. Diane Sandrejko
