We would like to book a day with this taxi. We are coming off a cruise ship for a few hours and want to see the about 3 or 4 main attractions. We have a 10 & 8 year old with us. How many people can fit in the vehicle and how much would the cost be for about 4 hours of time? We will be there the first week of July. Thanks! Jasmin
