“The transfer was fantastic. From the start, Jamie was smiley, enthusiastic and he made us feel relaxed and welcome. He was knowledgable and had so many supplies (food and drink) for the family. He went out of his way to make it comfortable and drove safely and even managed to get us an earlier ferry. FABULOUS!”
