Bumpy ride but on time.
Annette_D, Mar 2024
Waited for us to get through customs, keeping in touch with me by text. Friendly and on time. Driver was a bit of a crazy driver. Getting closer to other cars, honking at people and had to slam on the brakes a couple times to keep from hitting cars are running red lights. It was a bit tense.

Great Pick Up in Sydney
Noreen_B, Oct 2023
I was in contact with the driver from the day before pick up. We estimated that we'd be off the ship by 10AM but we got out earlier. I messaged the drive and they were there within a half hour. Excellent service, spotless van and a good value.
On Time

Cruise Port to Hotel Review
Blair_G, Mar 2023
The transfer from the Cruise Port to local Hotel worked as advertised. We actually got off of the ship earlier than expected, and we text the local operator, and he was able to pick us up earlier.
Smooth transfer

Transfer went very smoothly. The driver met us on time. The car was spacious enough to handle all our luggage easily.

Rude bad temper shuttle transfer
David_M, Feb 2023
Hello, while on the Ship we got this transfer organised through our guest services. We booked through your firm not a problem. But when we got to the Shuttle transfer the guy who picked us up became rude to a female member of our family,we noticed more luggage coming with us and two other people.there was already 6 of us with lot of luggage. My female member said we booked this for us,what are you doing loading this other stuff. He yeld at here said, listen lady be quiet, no more I can fit who I like on this cab its mine. We didn't push it anymore we just wanted to get back to our hotel. Your booking was ok. But who you get is another story. Please try find a service that can relate and not be rude to paying customers. Regards

Transportation from Ship to Hotel
AnnMarie_D, Dec 2022
Driver was on time, organized and efficient. While the bus was full, it was a great way to get to our hotel. Others on the bus were headed to the airport post cruise so we were dropped off first.
