    Ljubljana to Opatija

    Our first ride with Daytrip and it was fantastic! Andrea was very friendly and a great driver. It was our first time using daytrip and were so happy we found it. Will definitely plan to use it again in the future. The option to add stops at tourist destinations along the way is a great idea!

    Trip from Liberia, Costa Rica to Santa Teresa (and back)

    Had the best experience driving from Liberia, Costa Rica to Santa Teresa (round trip). Both drivers were excellent, on time and offered amazing suggestions. There was even wifi in the car and the driver stopped by at local restaurant so we could get food before our flight. The best experience and super seamless.

    Luxor to Hurghada (Egypt)

    Khalid from Daytrip was accommodating and an incredible guide. Khalid contacted us the day before our travel to meet up and sign all documents he would need to pass onto the security checkpoints between Luxor and Hurghada. Doing this, made our trip much easier and took less time waiting at the security checkpoints. During our transfer, we opted to do a tour of the Dendera Temple. It worked out perfectly that Khalid was our guide as Dendera village was where he grew up so he had insider knowledge to the complex. We paid Khalid to guide us through the temple we otherwise would have gone into ourselves. He was so informative, had lots of stories from his childhood as well as so much knowledge about the temple itself. We did pay extra to go to the roof for a panoramic view of the complex, which we would also recommend if going to this temple. Most who come to Egypt do not go to Dendera as it is a bit out of the way from your major tourist sites, but it ended up being our favorite temple in all of Egypt and highly recommend taking the tour and requesting Khalid as your guide/driver for the excursion. The area is also still under excavation, so there will be so much more to uncover in the years to come.

    Great service!

    We used Day Trips twice on our recent trip to Spain— once from Ronda to Granada with a few hour stop at a winery between the two and a second time from Girona to Barcelona after a late dinner. Both drivers and cars were excellent and accommodating. The booking, execution, and communication with Day Trip was perfect and easy.

    The Daytrip driver advantage

    Daytrip driver
    • Local knowledge about the route from Johannesburg to Durban
      Including available sights
    • English speaking

      All our drivers speak English as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They're happy to discuss local history and culture with you, and answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the local language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with natives.

    • Safety first!

      We screen all our drivers for criminal and traffic records, and personally interview each one. We also inspect their cars for safety, comfort, and reliability. All cars must be less than ten years old, in excellent operating condition, and insured as required by local law. And because our drivers are locals, they're familiar with the rules and customs of the road.
