We had to go to the middle of nowhere for a pickup and then stood in the city for over an hour right next to where our hotel was waiting for more people to come. It would be nice to jave an ability to pick a pickup point.

Was fine once we got into the limo, however we were suppose to leave at 12.05 and ended up leaving at 1:30. There was no communication from anyone and instead was told to wait 10 minutes about 3 times. If there’s alternative companies I would use them instead.
