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.
