Excellent Service from Strusser's Limo's The plane was delayed for my daughter and her friends so emailed Robert who responded immediately, he was there to meet and greet them as promised and even went out his way to show them the sights before taking them to their hotel. I would recommend this Limo company without hesitation and certainly use them... More
