          Joao with EC Minibus was Excellent
          This was a round-trip pickup from London to the cruise terminal in Southampton and back to LHR for a family cruise. The van seated my entire 7 member group and our luggage comfortably. We arrived at the terminal and the airport early. I'll definitely book again with EC Minibus the next time I travel to London!

          Private tour from Southampton Cruise port to London
          We had the most amazing day! We were picked up by our driver at 8 AM, who was waiting outside just as we left the terminal, so that we would not miss him. He was just delightful as he took us first to Stonehenge, then to Bath. He told us about the audio tour to listen to at Stonehenge and where to go to eat in Bath. He shared with us his knowledge about different areas that we traveled through and was so accommodating the entire day. He waited a couple of hours in each place for us to experience all that we wanted to and then brought us back into London in the middle of rush-hour traffic but maintained such a happy attitude the entire day. I would highly recommend this experience for those who are looking to try to make a tour day of their first day in the city before they check into their hotel. We loved everything about it! We would definitely use this tour company again for the same exact tour. FIVE STARS!

          Big airport and such a long walk to the gates
          terminal 2 is such a drag …… long walk from check in all the way to the gate for North American bound traveller. Be prepared.

          painless transfers in London
          On a trip with LOTS of luggage (and frail backs) we booked EC Minibus from LHR to our London hotel, then our hotel to Southampton for the QM2 home. The driver met us at the arrivals lounge exactly when promised (a bit early, actually), took us precisely where we needed to be. The same driver, 4 days later, on time again for pickup and drop off. We didn't touch our luggage when he was around. We booked a larger vehicle and it was perfect for us and our heaps of stuff. Driver was pleasant and professional. Booking process was seamless. Charges were exactly as expected. I found this company because I wanted to deal directly with the provider, not through some website that makes it look like they're a company when they're really a broker. Next trip, they'll be my first choice. Zero hassle. Really smoothed out what could have been a rough part of the trip. Totally worth it (and reasonably priced, too).

          Enjoyable trip to Southampton from London
          Very well done. Our driver was on time and communicated with us until he arrived. Very nice trip that exactly as promised. Very comfortable. Joao was our driver and he was informative and helpful at all turns. Definitely recommend this trip as a precursor to our cruise.

          Enjoyable but disgusted that they allow dogs in the shops
          A good mix of shops - some more attainable than others - and there are definitely some bargains to be had. My only complaint was that they allow dogs (not service dogs) inside the shops which I found really, really off-putting.

          Recommend EC Minibus
          We hired EC Minibus on two occasions. Once to transport us from Heathrow to our London hotel and then a few days later to drive us from London to our Southampton cruise pier. On both occasions the drivers arrived on time, were friendly and courteous, and had a clean comfortable vehicle.

          Avoid this trip! Book a taxi and pay for your own entrance to Windsor for the same price.
          Terrible Service. I spent a full hour frantically looking for a "Coach" as was described at the port. It turned out to be a minivan and the driver finally contacted me 1 hour after the meeting time. Driver had to search for parking, didn't understand the ticketing and as a result we lost a full hour of time at the castle. Driver was friendly enough, but not at all engaging. He clearly didn't know what he was doing.

          Easiest Port we've encountered, but a long long long way from London.
          There was only 1 ship at the port, but it was so easy and quick to both board and deboard. The drop off and pick up areas are right outside the building entrance and exits making connection with your bus or van very easy. Not easy would be walking to the train terminal. There were several taxis but we had already arranged for a private van for 6 of us. Our drive from the port to downtown London took two hours, and the traffic was light!

          Good one to choose
          On time pickup and on time drop off with nice vehicle and all the room needed for 6 passengers and luggage. What more do you need.

          Excellent Service - Easy transfer from cruise ship to central London
          Excellent service and affordable … arrived on time and were easy to find. I was anxious about the connection—but it went extremely smooth. They responded promptly when I had questions! Highly recommend EC Mini Bus shuttle. I have actually recommended them to my travel agent I was so pleased.

          Great service and how can you find fault with anything when you are going on holiday. Porters were excellent, now for some time away to see the sun

          Our driver was early and picked us up at the cruise terminal. Had our name placard. It was a very comfortable ride to St Paneras and he had waters for us. Wonderful.

          Unreliable , Rude, Disrespectful
          Driver never showed up despite sending a booked and confirmed email weeks prior. EC Minibus is an awful service. For peace of mind, NEVER use this company. Upon calling the company for assistance, they blatantly lied, claiming the service was never confirmed although 3 separate emails stated booked and confirmed. Taxis and Uber are also significantly less expensive. We saved over $100. Best of luck to anyone using the service. Best to avoid at all costs.

          Professional, courteous and informative private excursion to Windsor Castle
          We cruised into the port of Southampton and wanted to visit Windsor Castle. Our travel agent set up a private transfer and guide with pre-reserved tickets. Christian met us at the terminal as expected. He was very personable, professional and an excellent driver. Our travel time was about an hour and a half during which we enjoyed some commentary on the area as well as some great conversations with Christian. We arrived to Windsor Castle at the appropriate time for our reservation and were pleased to be able to go right in as we saw a very long queue of people waiting. Our visit was two days before the coronation of King Charles III, so the area was buzzing with visitors. Christian met us again after our tour and brought us safely back to the terminal after a wonderful time. We would highly recommend asking for him by name if you decide to choose EC Minibus for transport services.

        WARNING - Do not use this company! UNSAFE drivers ! Driver was kept nodding off as he was falling asleep while driving on the highway at high speeds. We had to wake him 4 times as his head nodded off. He told us he was called very early (at 4:30) by his company to take on an extra driving trip and was not able to go to back to sleep. He said it happens all the time-not enough drivers. He also kept accelerating hard and then letting off the gas. Accelerating and letting off. He did this over and over so much several passengers felt sick and my wife got sick in the bathroom when we arrived. The company does not care about its customers safety.

        We have flagged this review as this is a fake review which has been left on our profile, TripAdvisor has refused to take this down. There is no mention of any company details or the driver's name to allow us to locate this service on our records. As a company, we take our passengers and driver safety very seriously and we will never put anyone in danger. This review has been left for our minibus service which by UK law the vehicle is monitored with a tachograph which controls the number of hours that a driver is legally allowed to drive on the road, this stops any drivers from driving more than they are legally required to drive, therefore this review is incorrect and this is why it has been flagged as a fake review.
