Let's 1.5 hours late and kept telling us every 15 minutes that it was coming soon. The van stopped several times to pick people up off the road while we were commuting and space was tight.

Got stuck waiting at the airport but were given several different reasons before it turning out it was the van we were waiting for. Got shoved in the back with 1 too many people and a stranger sat practically on one of my legs for most of the journey. No communication from driver or anyone else about what was happening as and when we stopped or got moved. The saving grace was the views but they would have been there anyway. Pay for a private car, it will be worth the money.

The van had great air conditioning and we made very good time. Our driver's fast driving felt a little unsafe at times.

Reserved 3 seats including one extra seat and the van is totally fully after a family with 2 kids arrived. No confortable for the price and this extra seat because in finally we needed to let our payed place to the family otherwise it was not possible for them to be in a car.

We booked a one way from Puerto Princesa to El Nido. We showed up early to only realize that they were combining the 7am van with the 8am van so we had to wait 1.5 hrs to leave. The van was full so it was an extremely uncomfortable ride and we made a stop every 45 minutes for smoke breaks. Wouldn’t recommend, wish we paid a bit more for a flight.

We had almost 1 hour delay in departure, the van wasn't definitely the one shown on pictures, it was old and in a bad shape, no space for legs. In the middle of the way we had 20 minutes stop in some kind of restaurant. The food there was selling cold, other things in shop very expensive, local crew unpleasant. The driver drop of us in central station, not in the hotels as was promised so we needed to take tricycle. Overall quite bad experience, unfortunetally there are not many options how to get from one city to another.

Cramped uncomfortable not quite as described on the site. The picking up of random people was quite a surprise too, not so much a private transfer as it was a public bus. I can appreciate the reasons for packing buses is to make the trip worth while but perhaps the description of it needs adjusting

For 5 1/2 travel. You're van is old and to tight for tall people, knowing that most of your clients are foreigners. And the driver stopped and picked passengers as well. On positive side and most important he's a good driver.
