Great customer service and great value for money. The customer service was excellent. I had to amend my booking several times but nothing was too much trouble. Could not fault them and Maria was excellent. Great value for money compared with other providers

Verified Traveller June 2019
Lots of e-mail contact, so immediately after we had paid the money, I didn't feel we had been abandoned to get on with it. Yes, the taxi/transfer service in Portugal was punctual and polite. On the first evening, our minibus had a puncture on the motorway, but we stopped safely and the team took care of sorting it out and getting us to the hotel with minimal fuss or delay.
