WAYNE Review 22 April 2022

Arrived safely thankyou, met by Phil in his Calais, very smooth ride!

DIANA Review 28 December 2021

Excellence Shuttles were a great service from Cairns Airport to Port Douglas, and we used them as a shuttle during our stay there. Much cheaper than the other shuttle company at $8 return from the Sheraton into town and back, and the drivers were more friendly. I had left my back cushion in the taxi, and even before I realised it was missing, the driver had tracked me down and it was waiting in my hotel room when I returned. Thanks for the great service!

ROBYN Review 26 November 2021

We would like to thank your company for the great help that you were to us yesterday when Lorraine left her mobile phone on the coach on arriving at Cairns airport. The professional manner in which your driver was able to contact our family to let us know that the phone was safe and then returning it to our daughters home in Port Douglas was a great relief to us in a stressful situation .We appreciated your help so much, and will recommend your services to all our friends travelling to holiday in the area. Many thanks
