The van had great air conditioning and we made very good time. Our driver's fast driving felt a little unsafe at times.

Reserved 3 seats including one extra seat and the van is totally fully after a family with 2 kids arrived. No confortable for the price and this extra seat because in finally we needed to let our payed place to the family otherwise it was not possible for them to be in a car.

We booked a one way from Puerto Princesa to El Nido. We showed up early to only realize that they were combining the 7am van with the 8am van so we had to wait 1.5 hrs to leave. The van was full so it was an extremely uncomfortable ride and we made a stop every 45 minutes for smoke breaks. Wouldn’t recommend, wish we paid a bit more for a flight.

The trip from Puerto princessa to El nido is vert long by shuttle, the departure was planned at 1pm and finaly goes at 2pm. At 2pm get into the van at puerto airport but the van stop at shuttle terminal ans we have to change van. We finaly arrived at 8pm instead of 6pm, the driver drive very fast and as usual un philippines. It's difficulte to cet information about where or when we will be drop off. Not a vert good trip

We had almost 1 hour delay in departure, the van wasn't definitely the one shown on pictures, it was old and in a bad shape, no space for legs. In the middle of the way we had 20 minutes stop in some kind of restaurant. The food there was selling cold, other things in shop very expensive, local crew unpleasant. The driver drop of us in central station, not in the hotels as was promised so we needed to take tricycle. Overall quite bad experience, unfortunetally there are not many options how to get from one city to another.

Cramped uncomfortable not quite as described on the site. The picking up of random people was quite a surprise too, not so much a private transfer as it was a public bus. I can appreciate the reasons for packing buses is to make the trip worth while but perhaps the description of it needs adjusting

For 5 1/2 travel. You're van is old and to tight for tall people, knowing that most of your clients are foreigners. And the driver stopped and picked passengers as well. On positive side and most important he's a good driver.

I may have just got real lucky because I know a lot of other people were pretty uncomfortable but I was fine! I had two bags, didn't have to pay extra, I got the front seat which was surprisingly comfortable AND I even got to charge my phone too haha I sat there the full 5 hours just enjoying the view and observing everything. Driving was crazy but I felt super safe. Would definitely use company again!
