    Donald and Mary are very nice people. I contacted them back in October as I was left needing a ride from Winding Stair Gap, into Franklin for to pick up a resupply. Donald took my call and scheduled Mary to pick me up in the morning. She was early, pleasant and very accomadating.

    Mary shuttled me last year in North Georgia. Great experience!

    I've commented several times on here that Donald and Mary have always provided me and my group a top notch experience each of the three or four times we've used them. Great communication, they're always on time, and when Deep Purple's Space Truckin' came on the radio, Mary didn't hesitate to turn it up loud when I asked. A++

    I also have had great shuttle experiences with Further Shuttle and I highly recommend them. I've shuttled back and forth with them on two different section hikes. Donald is very knowledgeable on logistics and quick to respond to texts and calls. Mary is a everything I need in a shuttle driver..prompt and friendly.

    I used Donald and Mary/Further Appalachian shuttle last week for a 1-week section hike of the Georgia A.T. Not only were they extremely friendly and professional but they went above and beyond, and I really enjoyed our time together and a lot of wonderful conversations. They stopped at nothing to give the best service possible, and I would highly recommend them for your needs when hiking in the area. They also have a great new hiker hang at the Seasons Inn in Blairsville called the Grateful hiker. Check it out. I will be calling them whenever I need anything in the area. They seem to be equally loved by the community and other hiking businesses in the area, and it's clear why.
