Highly recommend! The park shuttles were closed so we booked these shuttles for Christmas day. They answered my call with questions the day before (Christmas eve at 6pm). The drivers were warm and helpful all Christmas day. They even had 2 shuttles running to double the accessibility. She actively waited to see if people were running down the hill to catch the shuttle.

Very good and punctual service. However, be aware that people (mostly middle aged males) are super pushy and non respectful when getting on the return bus

The shuttle was so convenient for a great day - just made it so simple. The driver was a wealth of knowledge on the area too.

Really great to not have to think about drop off and pick up. Friendly service and knowledgeable drivers.

You have to be well trained, Bit it is a Great joerney
