Amazing experience
, Mar 2020
Experience was amazing. Not only did they pick me up from the airport but they took me to breakfast, waiting for the ferry to land, arranged rides wherever I needed to go and set up tours last minute like I was VIP.

At the time of booking there were only2 options available: economy and business....but once I’ve arrived there were other 2 higher options allowing to wait in room with AC instead of outside. The trip was smooth, AC inside too strong, if you don’t carry a jumper it’s freezing. Showing a movie ....but with no audio.....

Le seul point positif c’est que l’on vous prend à charge à l’hôtel. Ensuite vous arrivez le taxi vous lache oui lache, dans une immense foule a l’entrée du ferry et là c’est la catastrophe un nombre incalculable de personnes vous interpelle et vous prend la main pour dire de les suivre pour que vous leur donniez ensuite de l’argent. Ensuite arrivée dans le ferry tout ce passe normalement. Arrivée du ferry, gros gros bordel pour récupérer ces bagages. Tout le monde s’entasse, ce pousse, pour être le premier pour récupérer ces affaires. Il faut être plus fort que les autres et aller directement au comptoir et interpellé le bagagiste pour lui demander nos valises. Tout le monde hurle c’est vraiment difficile d’en sortir rapidement. J’ai fait mes plus beaux yeux doux pour récupérer mes valises (environ 15 min) sinon je pense que vous y resterez au moins 1h30. Ensuite à la sortie du ferry Rebel ôte tout le monde vous interpelle pour un taxi. Franchement prenez un avion c’est beaucoup plus simple et vous voyagerez en toute sérénités.

Many thanks for your review, and sorry to hear about your inconvenience. Please note we are only service providers for tickets and transfers so that the guest could avoid the hassle as much as possible of buying ticket and getting to the terminal but we wish we could control the local crowd who use ferries for daily commute between the islands.
