"You are a friendly bunch, your cars are clean and tidy and you explain all the procedures well. You provide a great shuttle service from the airport and the instructions on how to go about getting picked up and dropped off. Your prices are great, overall I was very impressed and have mentioned how pleased I was to a number of people. The GPS worked well and one of the staff explained it to me in detail. No complaints, there was no hidden expenses, no catches, great service."
