    From door to door.

    This service was perfect as Í needed tó get from A to B and a bus was really not an option and no trains available. The service ( we made three trips in July and August) was very good, communication quick and to the point. All drivers punctual and the cars clean and comfortable. Very good addition to the “ free” traveler.

    Excellent quality experience

    Used Daytrip for a half-day excursion from Trieste, Italy to Piran (Slovenia), Motovun (Croatia) and finally on to Rovinj. Our driver Sanel/Sonny was exceptional. Well-informed, friendly and professional. His service made the trip memorable and was of the highest quality. Excellent experience.

    Great service

    We had a wonderful experience with Daytrip. Our driver Simarjot was very polite and professional - arrived on time, offered to make any stops that we needed and easy to reach when we were coordinating a pickup. His car was clean and comfortable and he was a very good driver. I think it is wonderful to have options for travel/tours that more flexible and also allow you to relax vs the hassle of renting/driving a car. Service was easy to book, a good value and I highly recommend!

    Fabulous Company

    I used Day Trip three times this past summer and every driver was fabulous. They were personable, easy to talk with, and always had ideas for places I should visit in the surrounding area as well as the place I was being dropped off at. I highly recommend this company. They work with you and all your changes should something come up. They quickly respond to all emails and make sure everything is ok.

    The Daytrip driver advantage

    Daytrip driver
    • Local knowledge about the route from Nairobi to Mombasa
      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.
