The minivan was nice and clean. The driver was very friendly and helpful. The whole trip was great the best one we had whilst in Thailand. The only issue was finding where the pick up was. Once I messaged them they sent photos which was great. Would definitely recommend.

The pick up addresss could not be found through Google maps. It was through phone communication that I eventually found the right place.

Everything went smoothly. We went to the agency the day before and sked to be picked up from the hostel. Paid extra 10 batt to the driver for crossing the border which was written in the rules of the Thai border. Crossing the border was fast and easy, no additional charges over there. Arrived in George Town on time and the driver dropped us close to our hotel and showed the directions.
