you aware that there are six pasingers on board so we don't understand your problem you check in and told us you needed to go back to your car to get somthing and never came back
Just waste time and money

Not good experience at all. This company charge you $50 or $100 for being late. This is ridiculous. I got there on time, actually 30 min before my flight, but they send you to one address, soon you got there need get a van , and go to another address. This don’t make no sense. Also the waiting room it’s terrible, don’t have nothing. Water, champagne, nothing. You waste almost the entire day, because it’s to far from NY. Need get train , then a share ride, because it’s all the way in NJ. So it’s that. Choose another company.

Your post is baseless, when you booked your tour did you read that DEPARTURES ARE FROM NJ. You missed your check in time and we had to re send the shuttle after WE called you, instead of you calling us like it says on the booking once you arrive you call us so we send the shuttle. There is a vending machine just like the airport has, as for champagne serving you don't get that at the airport either.

Amazing experience! Great price and a great time. Staff was very friendly and personable. The procedure of getting a call from a private number telling us to wait for a van outside a building was suspicious at first, but as soon as I met the staff I knew I was in great hands.
