Not the best confort but you will get there in time. More information on what happens at times from the driver would be appreciated.

Van went on time. Driver was quick and not overly dangerous. Three stops. Five and a half hours duration.

It’s my second time to visit Palawan but my first time to travel to El Nido. Prior to my arrival, I had a teleconversation with your team and clarify the rules of arriving just in time and the location of pick up. The description during the booking clearly says PPS airport but when I received the voucher there was additional information that I have to go to San Jose terminal which is I am not familiar hence I need to pay additional Php 150 for airport tricycle.. I have coordinated that I will arrive at exactly 11am as my flight will land at 10:20. And when I reached there 5 minutes before 11am.. there was no van hence I need to wait for more than 30 minutes and we left the terminal at 12noon. And I reached my accomodation 15 minutes before 6pm. I had 7 hours travel and there are more than 2 stops (lunch and taytay). Unfortunately, I have a return booking but I am not going because of what had happened I am afraid I will miss my flight because your timings are unreliable despite the notice that there could be delays of 1 to 2 hours. The driver is good but the operator needs improvement and proper coordination. Thanks

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.

Good travel. 5 hours 30mn with rainy weather

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.

5 star, special compliment to the driver Erwin. Very professional, not reckless and offered a front door serviced to the passengers.

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.

Manejaba muy rapido
van Regional 14pax, Lexxus Shuttle, Apr 11, 2019
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.

The trip from Puerto princessa to El nido is vert long by shuttle, the departure was planned at 1pm and finaly goes at 2pm. At 2pm get into the van at puerto airport but the van stop at shuttle terminal ans we have to change van. We finaly arrived at 8pm instead of 6pm, the driver drive very fast and as usual un philippines. It's difficulte to cet information about where or when we will be drop off. Not a vert good trip
van Regional 14pax, Lexxus Shuttle, Feb 26, 2019
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.
van Regional 14pax, Lexxus Shuttle, Feb 25, 2019
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
van Regional 14pax, Lexxus Shuttle, Feb 18, 2019
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.

Service van is a little bit old and air con is not good enough.
van Regional 14pax, Lexxus Shuttle, Nov 8, 2018
I may have just got real lucky because I know a lot of other people were pretty uncomfortable but I was fine! I had two bags, didn't have to pay extra, I got the front seat which was surprisingly comfortable AND I even got to charge my phone too haha I sat there the full 5 hours just enjoying the view and observing everything. Driving was crazy but I felt super safe. Would definitely use company again!

Great driver Brian, waiting time 1.5 hours was quite annoying setting off at 8:30am instead of 7am but overall very good
