Customer feedback

Yes driver was at the airport, really polite and friendly. Van was large to fit 6people and 7 huge suitcases plus carry on cases. Well done! This was the perfect trip.
The driver was excellent and highly professional. We were delayed at the immigration queuing, but once we reached the exit, our driver was there for us - cheerful and welcoming. Couldn't have asked for more. The car was also very comfortable and the ride itself was a joy. Thank you!
Very friendly drivers, altough they have to wait very long because of long rows and very very slow passport controls at the airport

Everything was great!!! We were lucky with the driver that met us on time at the airport, helped with luggage and drove fast to the hotel. During the road we learned a lot of useful thing about the city life. Highly recommended service!
