    Prompt pickup, driver was great with briefing us before we left. Recommended as a great service to anyone doing the crossing as it allows you to relax after a long day.

    An awe experience!!!

    This is by far one of the best experiences in my life. The shuttle was so organised, the driver gave us many tips to be safe and enjoy an incredible day! On our way back they spoiled us with popsicles! I reccomend this company a lot.

    Good service

    Very friendly driver and the 7 hours they give you (or 8.5 if you get the later shuttle) was sufficient and well timed

    Perfect

    Punctual to the minute, our driver in the morning filled us in before the walk with all the dos and don'ts and what's and where's, and our driver home left on time and made sure we were happy and hydrated after a long (and very hot days) walk. We could not have asked for more!

    Issues with hours and communication

    The driver told us before starting the hike that the pick up would be at 2:30pm and 4pm due to weather and that we should not be late otherwise we had to go home on our own. We rushed to be there before 4pm and we still had to wait for an hour on the parking lot instead of spending it on the walk under fine weather. We thought we missed it or you left us. Seriously a short text or email would have solved it... You ALSO need to be on time.
