The drive was super smooth, great driver who made sure we got a toilet and food break which we weren’t expecting so that was lovely! Met our boat and the driver made sure we got on okay. Picked up at the hotel too which was a bonus as didn’t think we’d have the option! What I would say is that the communication for the time of pick up was a bit confusing. We booked for 10am, then were told 12pm, then the bus turned up at 6:30am whilst we were asleep. It was quickly dealt with and we moved on but that would be the only thing to mention.

Convenient and punctual service considering the different people to bring. The only detail is that the driver was driving very fast with fair road conditions and a lot of rain. For the rest excellent
