About Me. The Susi touch

With years of experience and a deep love for my region.

My enthusiasm for recommendations about the great places to discover. I hear from travellers what restaurants are nice, the walks around Start Bay and Events Venues in the South Hams.

Imagine yourself winding through winding lanes, telling your taxi driver tails from the event out as the hedges pass by as Susi is driving you safely to your destination.

Before your journey, we send you a friendly reminder to confirm your pick-up details and wish you a wonderful adventure.

No matter where your South Hams dreams take you, we're just a whisper away.

A Haven on wheels

Our meticulously maintained vehicles are more than just transportation; they're your comfortable haven on wheels. Fresh interiors, sparkling exteriors, sink into plush seats, let the gentle hum of the engine get you to your destination.
