Testimonial from recent Charisma customer: 

"Thank you for all your help transporting our wedding party on July 2017 from Nacogdoches to “The Barn” in Garrison 17 miles away. You and your staff showed professionalism, and were more than prepared.  Our wedding party felt safe and sound in your hands, especially when a downpour occurred, prior to the transporting of the guests for the 17-mile journey. Any time we are in the area, we look forward to using your service for any tours we might take. Thank you again for all your help!" - Linda & Nick Monaco
