Transportation Silangit Airport – Horas Family Home
We have no business interest in any of the transportation aspects of your journey. Notwithstanding, we are ready to arrange for your transportation under our credo ‘EXCLUSIVE & EXCELLENT’, but this comes at a cost. Apart from us arranging for your transportation you have quite some different options such as public transport, shared taxi, chartered taxi etc, and you are most welcome to arrange for your own transportation as you think fit.
For an idea about how our transportation costs compare to real ‘low cost transportation’, you may have a look at:
Till a few years ago we sometimes recommended a company to arrange for car & driver for our guests. Car and driver over which we did not have any control. Sometimes the guests ended up with a very old car and the full smoking crazy racing star driver training for the upcoming F1 races. Sometimes the guests ending up in extremely expensive Restaurants for lunch and in the end the guests holding us responsible as we did recommend such transporter, driver, car. We have concluded that we cannot afford recommending transporters drivers (and cars) over which we don’t have full control.
Transportation arranged for by HORAS FAMILY HOME ITSELF comes ‘Exclusive and Excellent’ and is more a combination of sightseeing and transportation than transportation only. All our drivers come with a brand new or rather new cars such as Kijang Innova, Avanza, Suzuki APV or similar type and make, with AC. In our drivers you will find safe and reliable drivers who will not smoke in the car. Transportation costs include cost for the driver, petrol, toll road and regular parking fees along the road. On request we will try to find an English speaking driver at no extra costs. Entrance fees of tourist attraction points and ferry costs are not included.
We only arrange for transportation for guests actually staying with Horas Family Home.
