Car was spacious and comfortable, just need to inform the passengers where's the pick up point a day before or pick up the phone in the morning when people are trying to find your shop. Besides this, the overall trip was good and the driver drops you off at your hotels direct.

Bra personal, bra minibuss. På väg till Thailand tvingade betala försäkring 50bth, som jag inte behövde, efter jag har min egen.

We were squeezed into an MPV instead of a 14 pac van

This service will get you from A to B but not without some stress along the way. I had a slight delay when passing through the Thai border and upon exiting the terminal I could not find the van anywhere as the driver had not informed us where he would park. After phonecalls to the office and the driver I managed to find the van, with a very annoyed and unaplogetic driver. Who had asked us each for 20 baht surprisingly, which is odd considering it's free to cross the border and we had already paid our van fare. Coming back, it was incredibly difficult to find the departure point as it is pretty tucked away. Again we were asked for money when arriving at the border by the driver, 3 Ringit each now. All in all, arrived safely on both trips which is all we could really ask for.

All good. Only they didn't bring us to our hostel. We're lucky it was close and we could walk. Otherwise really good

Unfriendly staff.

The van was comfortable, the driver was a very nice person and skilled driver. We did have a delay on departure as we drove around Georgetown collecting additional passengers for nearly 45 minutes, but it was not a big problem for us. We had another delay at the border crossing when a few passengers had some issues and we ended up leaving one passenger behind because they were not allowed to cross the border, but that is not the fault of the travel company. I would use this service again and recommend it to others.
