It was so appreciated that George was standing just outside where we picked up our luggage and was able to take us to the place to wait for his vehicle….just made it so much easier after a long flight. He also spent the remainder of the trip giving us hints and a map of Sydney

Excellent experience

Our driver was excellent. He provided a lot of information to us. Very quick and uneventful experience.

Eddypolo_A, Apr 2024
On location dispatcher more attentive on his calls rather than “paying customers “. This a well planned schedule by the customer so the dispatch must be prepared. Body language speaks louder than words. They should appear confident
Great Service
Randy_O, Apr 2024
The van was at the airport, as promised, when we arrived. We were in touch via text as to where we were to meet our driver. I would highly recommend Viator!!
No muss or fuss airport transfer

William_J, Mar 2024
Nothing. Never used the service because communication became because of phone number but company give an estimate of pick up time so a no go.
Transfer with great price and friendly driver
Annette_D, Mar 2024
We were the last ones to get dropped off at our hotel, so we got to see a lot of the city. Prompt and friendly driver.
Professional and on Time
Lothax, Mar 2024
Our driver was friendly and knowledgeable. He kept in perfect communication and explained exactly how to navigate out of the airport and find him.
Driver irritated
Steven_C, Mar 2024
The driver was demonstrably irritated with us that we didn’t arrive on HIS timetable. Unfortunately, we were in row 54 of the airplane, and it took an hour to deplane, go through passport control, pick up luggage, clear immigration and get to pickup point. He said he was getting ready to leave us, and was angry we did not have our cell phones on, though signs throughout the immigration area tell you explicitly NOT to use your cellphone. Anyway, once past that joyful little “welcome to Australia” moment, the trip was efficient and appropriate.
Very well done
GEOFFREY_M, Mar 2024
Very well organised with contact prior to luggage collection and subsequent photo of pick up point and vehicle identifier.

Lynn_K, Mar 2024
We were in the correct meeting point at the airport. Waited 75 minutes. Driver never showed up. Walked around airport. Trying to find the shuttle. Had no Internet or Wi-Fi to call anyone. Finally someone at the information desk at the airport. Helped us by calling the number Listed. She gave them a booking number and information and was told that they don’t drive to North Sydney and will not be pick us up. Iwe then had to find a cab. We paid for this trip in advance but no one contacted us that they could not provide a shuttle
Very nice & efficient
Denise_M, Mar 2024
He was already waiting at baggage claim when we got there & helped with our luggage to his car-super nice & friendly! Definitely recommend!
Australia trip
Linda_J, Feb 2024
Didn’t get his name but he is excellent driver, was on time after a call , kept us connected with some aus tips ❣️❣️❣️
Not so great service
Cynthia_B, Feb 2024
Tour company expected phone calls with international passenger. We met where originally told and it was changed to a weird location and we missed the shuttle from the airport. Then had to move 3 times with luggage to try and find changed van. New driver took us through not so good parts of Sydney. On return they required us to meet 10 mins before the pickup time and came 20 mins before expecting us to be there. We came down 9 mins before and did make the shuttle so we’re relieved to make it
Rides were good
Kenton_J, Feb 2024
The rides from and to the airport were goid. Was nice to have pre-booked and taken care of ahead of time
Perfect airport transfer
Diane_R, Feb 2024
Tour operator was texting me before we finished walking through customs. They confirmed meeting place, called the Meeting point, and advised our driver would be arriving and meeting us within 10 minutes. All was very smooth and organized especially after our long flight from California! I think his name was Eduardo but he was professional and friendly. Great service!
Smooth transfer to my Hotel
Gita_P, Feb 2024
The pick up point was easy to locate. The driver was very pleasant and pointed out important places we passed.
Airport to Hotel Transfer Was a Breeze.
Bob_L, Feb 2024
Driver was professional and delivered us promptly to our accomodations. Communications prior to the pickup were clear.
Airport to hotel transfer so easy after a long day of travel.
Brenda_P, Feb 2024
I highly recommend this transfer, text updates directing us to the van was great even gave us the license plate number to look for. Driver was amazing and very friendly. Viator is our go to booking agent for all tours and transfers

Terence_S, Feb 2024
Our flight arrived an hour late. After calling the service we were told to wait for an hour for a shuttle, but offered a private pick up in 20 mins for an additional $33 USD. Should have just taken a taxi
