Things to remember:
If you are a foreigner, a first-time visitor, or simply if you want a worry-free journey, opt for private transportation. A private transfer will give you peace of mind, as you will arrange all the details and the payment in advance. Upon landing, you will be greeted by an English-speaking driver, who will escort you to the vehicle.
You will have a pleasant drive to your destination. Door-to-door service with no hassle with the luggage, or having to overcome language barriers. You will not have to deal with navigating the city on your own, which can be time-consuming, especially if you are unfamiliar with the city. Book an airport transfer in advance, and eliminate your concerns.
