taxi Comfort, TravelODesk India, Nov 9, 2019
Booking was easy, but driver got lost twice. He also made stops so he could eat sit down lunch when we didn’t want to stop. Trip took an extra two hours cause of driver errors and his need to eat lunch. We made it though and he showed up on time. Overall would book with 12GoAsia again, but definitely not the same driver.
