It was a 4am pick up and a 1 hour transfer. The very nice driver arrived early and we felt looked after. There had been constant communication pre departure too. Really good service.
Can't recommend this company enough on our recent trip to Albufeira. Absolutely no hassle and someone waiting when we landed in Faro and collected in plenty of time for our return trip back to Faro. Both drivers were really professional and very kind. Highly recommend them
All thinks went fine! Driver was a very nice guy. Went to Lagos and it was strait forward on a highway trip. Thank you all
