We had the pleasure of using their shuttle service twice over two days. They were on time, super fries, and very safe. Service with a smile at a very reasonable cost. We will use them again without hesitation.

These guys were prompt and efficient, AND all the drivers are great! You’ll enjoy the journey. If Routeburn is too crowded for you, look into the Rees-Dart!
