Very nice driver. Jorge responded to our wishes regarding the driving route. Driven very safely. Had warm blankets with me. He was very punctual. Dropped by the hotel a day before the trip and checked the helmet measurements and measurements for the warm jackets. Given the length of the trip, he didn't look at the clock. a great trip. Highly recommended.
