a taxi driver in Mexico City...
be aware that flagging green cabs on the streets of Mexico
City is very, very risky. That's why I strongly recommend
that women visiting Mexico City hire Gloria Rodriguez, a competent
female cabbie for the Super Sitio radio cab service. My friends
and I hired Gloria on several occasions and each
time her service was not only reliable but pleasant and we
arrived at our destination safely. To reach this driver, simply
contact: Super Sitio 160, A.C. Radio Taxis las 24 hrs. at
any of these numbers: 5271 - 9146, 9058 or 8972, then request
Gloria, Placas (License) 396 LNK, Unidad (Car) M-7. P.S.
Gloria speaks only Spanish so if necessary have someone
at your hotel write down your destination or anything else
you need for her to know. Stay protected, everybody!
taxi service in Buenos Aires, Argentina...
the day, buses and the subway (called the 'subte' by locals)
are perfectly safe.
However, don't ever walk alone at night, especially in areas
such as La Boca and Retiro that have dicey reputations. Never
take taxis off the street; always call a Radio-taxi (Tel:
4922-9999) or even better, take a remise car where a driver
will take you to your destination for a fixed rate. My personal
favorite is Remises Hola S.A. 4786-5333. E-mail: email@example.com.
a taxi driver in Milan, Italy...
ago, when nine Canadian women were in the planning stages
for a visit to Northern Italy, we opted to hire a mini-bus
for the 1 1/2 hour drive from Malpensa International Airport
to our rental villa in the tiny village of Casal Cermelli.
We were lucky enough to find Panicucci's Taxi Service on the
Internet and the company responded to our inquiries promptly
and reasonably. Arriving at Malpensa we were met by part-owner,
Sergio who offered an abundance of information about where
to go and what to see. We also asked Sergio to provide transportation
back to Malpensa Airport at 6
a.m. the day of our departure. He was outside the villa's
gated courtyard at 5.30 a.m., having risen at 4 a.m. to drive
one hour to be there. Moreover, as a bonus, he provided coffee
and croissants for our journey. A wonderful man who became
a friend, Sergio can be located at Panicucci Taxi Service,
e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. We
highly recommend him to other JourneyWomen. P.S. Sergio also
offers cell phone rentals, something we couldn't find anywhere
on the web before going to Italy.

a taxi driver in Barbados...
like to tell other women about Carlos Taxi Service in Barbados.
I have used his service for two years running and it is excellent.
Carlos is friendly, efficient, and always on time. Best of
all, he likes a good chat. His number is 246 234 4091.
He's available 24 hours for weddings, functions, shopping,
the airport, and island tours. My daughters and I met him
last June when our hotel called him to take us to the Botanical
Gardens. He also took me to the airport for my journey back
home. When you're out touring Carlos is happy to wait until
your tour/outing is over for the return journey. This can
be any length of time, he doesn't mind how long or short your
visit is, and there is no need to decide in advance how long
you wish to be. As with all taxis in Barbados, the price is
agreed in advance, there are no meters. I hope this information
helps other travelling women.
a guide in Roaton, Honduras...
went on a cruise last November and found the best guide in
name is Theris Dixon. She's extremely knowledgable and took
us all over the Island of Roatan, Honduras. Theris charged
us $US80 for an all day excursion. She took us to a place
to snorkle that was free versus a resort that would have cost
much, much more and she was happy to do it. We laid out on
the beach and snorkled for three hours while she made herself
comfortable with other drivers at a table under the palm trees.
If we ever make it back there we will defintely look her up
again. Theris can be contacted at: email@example.com
Laurie, Wichita, USA
a driver in Tennerife, Canary Islands, Spain...
is a taxi driver, Victor Rodriguez, that I have used nine
or ten times over the course of four visits to Tenerife. Victor
speaks some English which has improved with each of my visits.
He has taken me to the far corners of the island, is knowledgeable
about non-tourist restaurants as well as places of interest
to tourists. Once he understands what you want to order he
will handle that for you. He is trustworthy, has a good sense
of humor and is a safe driver. This driver lives in the town
of Medano and his family and extended relatives live on the
island. When making the initial contact use Spanish whether
talking or writing. Victor's cell phone is: 34 64 7580 393.
His e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel comfortable to use my name in contacting him.
