Really great site, I highly recommend it if you’re looking for long transport. You’re paying for convenience and being able to book on your own time, in advance and not have to wait for public transit. We booked 3 rides in Costa Rica: San Jose to La Fortuna, La Fortuna to Manuel Antonio, Manuel Antonio to San Jose. The communication before and during the trip was great, very easy process. Our driver for the first and last ride was Cesar Matamoros, he was great! He spoke English and Spanish and was very knowledgeable about the country. We learned a lot from him! Our other driver for the second trip was named Jason and he mainly spoke Spanish. We added a stop during the ride at a beautiful garden and he waited for us while we explored. And he added a bonus stop for us to the crocodile bridge!

We were at the tail end of a long tour of Italy and had only one leg left, from Manarola to Genoa, before taking to the air to get home. We were tired, and the idea of taking the train and taxis was unappealing, so we decided to give this service a shot. We had a wonderful experience on the drive and with Francesco, our driver, specifically. He was kind and patient and pointed out many interesting sights along the way. His effort to get us close to our hotel in Genoa was nothing short of heroic. We will ask for him specifically if we find ourselves in the area again. It was only my first experience with this company, but my wife and I were extremely happy with it and will use it again on future trips.
All Daytrip drivers speak English* as well as their native language (and sometimes additional languages too!). They'll be happy to discuss local history and culture with you, as well as answer any questions you may have. And because they speak the language, they're able to provide you with a unique opportunity to connect with local culture. *Drivers for Lite service aren't required to speak English but must meet all other standards.
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.
