Easy, Safe & Reliable Transportation

No need to stress about renting a vehicle or driving on unknown roads with “unique” driving conditions. Our drivers have flawless safety records, speak fluent English, and, most importantly, are awesome people who can show you a new side to their community. All of their vehicles are inspected and are in tip-top shape. Your driver will welcome you at the airport, drive you to your accommodation, provide your family two local rides /day (to and from your volunteer site or activities for example) and drop you off at the end of your stay.

Local Liaison

-Travel like a local. Your local liaison will show you the way-

Want to know the best spot to get a deal on souvenirs? How about the best spot for dancing or a drink in the evening? That’s what your local liaison is there for. She’ll be in touch as you get ready to take off and will be there to meet you when you arrive. During your trip, she’ll be there to help out with whatever you might need.
