They had a mix up in the system they said - so they were 1.5 hours late. They tried to sell me that instead of the van i will get a private car at no extra cost to make up for the mixup. The car was shared with other people and barely fit our luggage. I was cramped up in the front with my luggage between my leggs. On top the driver wasn’t very attentive. Overall can’t recommend this at all.
