After our original transfer failed to reply to my communication I contacted SGTAXIMY at the last minute to do the transfer from Singapore to Legoland Malaysia. Not only did I get an instant reply but the transfer was confirmed and contact made with the driver. The driver was on time, friendly and clear on instructions for border crossing etc. The cost was very reasonable for 3 adults & 2 children. I would highly recommend this company for any transfers within Singapore or beyond. Thank you
