  • The service was fantastic turning the trip across to the island (and back) one of the highlights of the weekend.

    It was easy to park and so we had no worries arriving and leaving at either end.

    We didn’t get stuck crossing despite the bad weather.

    The crossing was fun.

    You were flexible (we switched to a later time).

    All in all great and would definitely use u again....

  • Russ,
    Didn't realise how good a decision I had made to use yourselves until I saw the queues on the Monday morning for the buses and especially the river taxis!
    It was the perfect way to travel!!

  • Travelling to the festival by speedboat with Urban Truant was a great way to start the weekend. It literally drops you off at the door and we missed all the mud and traffic chaos! Great experience and would definately book again.
