The service was provided exactly as expected. Waiting outside at airport and making sure of avoiding all the craziness was so nice. The driver was very nice and conversation was appreciated. Day before departure, there was a note verifying my reservation, and that was reassuring. When waiting for my return to the airport in the hotel lobby, The driver arrived 5-10 minutes early, and that was awesome. No worries about being forgotten, or being late.
