    Seville to Tarifa Trip - Excellent Experience

    We were visiting Seville with the next stop on our vacation being Tangier, Morocco. Unfortunately, there were no trains to take us from Seville to the Port of Tarifa to board the ferry to Morocco. We could take the train to another city, and then a bus, or take a bus direct to Tarifa. Neither appealed to us and a friend recommended DayTrip for a personal driver to take us to the port. The booking experience on their website was extremely easy to follow and they even offered several tours we could add to our trip. Unfortunately, the timing didn't line up and we had to go straight to the port. A few days in advance, I received an email with the driver's information, his car information, and a picture. The morning we were checking out, our driver arrived early but we got locked out of our room with our luggage inside due to a faulty door lock. Our day started out very stressful, but our driver, Pedro, assured us that we were not an inconvenience and that we had plenty of time to make it to the port. After resolving the issue with the door lock, Pedro took our bags and loaded up the car. He was dressed very professionally and had water waiting for us. During our drive, he offered some small talk and pointed out a few interesting sites. He also stopped at a roadside cafe for my friend to get a much-needed coffee. He drove safely for the entire three hours and never once made us feel unsafe. I am so grateful we chose to use DayTrip rather than the bus. First, we would have missed the bus because of our door issue, and second, it was much less stressful being able to sit in the back of a nice car while being driven the three hours. Pedro was so very kind to us the entire trip. Yes, it was more expensive to use DayTrip than the bus, but the benefits outweighed the cost. We were able to decide what time we wanted to be picked up, if we wanted, we could have added additional stops, and we could relax rather than sit amongst 2-3 dozen other people on a cramped bus. Had we not already had transportation scheduled for our trips in Morocco, we would have booked DayTrip again.

    Fantastic

    I was a bit unsure on how it would all work out, but expectations were definitely exceeded. Ettore was absolutely awesome and very knowledgeable on the region. I also want to note that the car was incredibly nice and far surpassed what I thought we would be driving in. I will definitely be using this service again in the future and will recommend to my friends and family.

    Beautiful experience!

    The hilight of our trip! We treated family and friends to a sunset cruise along the Amalfi coast before our wedding. Not only was it beautiful, but Amelia worked with me prior to the excursion to make our experience personalized to our group. She gave me the exact information to give our driver to get us to the right meeting point, and made recommendations of timing according to the weather that day. On the actual tour, Amelia provided excellent service and took good care of us. She even had a little “I Do” balloon for us on the boat which was above and beyond! She had drinks, snacks, and blankets ready for us. She also pointed out various attractions along the coast and told us more about the area.

    Perfect Experience

    Our experience with Theodor F driving from Varna, Bulgaria to Bucharest, Romania was absolutely wonderful! He was prompt, friendly, safe, and courteous. There wasn’t anything that could’ve been better. He was very pleasant to converse with along the drive and we learned so much about life in Romania / Bucharest. We made a planned stop along the way and he again shared insights into the Rock-Hewn Churches of Ivanovo. Everything went perfectly as planned. This is our third time using Daytrip while traveling in Europe and every experience has been superb.
