I too would give them 0 or negative stars if I could. called for a cab and they said it would be a half hour to 45 minutes that was over 2 hours ago. just called back and waited on hold for 10 minutes before someone answered and told me that there were still no cabs in the area and it could be another hour before someone came to get me. too bad I missed the event that I was going to. seems I'll just be staying home tonight. :-( desert cab sucks! call anyone else but don't call them if ...view moreyou actually want to get anywhere!view lessShare Review

If I could give Desert Cab negative stars it would still be more than they deserve. Incompetence, errors, distain for their customers, no apologies, no performance, and finally we never got to our destination. These guys are the poster child for why Las Vegas needs UBER. If getting to your destination on time is your objective, avoid Desert Cab like the plague.
I made an online reservation for a cab (easy to do on their web site). They confirmed the reservation with an email (A+) whi...view morech included all our trip information, and our correct phone number. At this point they did everything perfectly. The perfection ended here.
Ten minutes after the scheduled arrival time I called to ask where our cab was. They informed me that they called to confirm that we still wanted the cab, got no answer on the call and cancelled the reservation. I stated there was no message on our answering machine, and was told there was no machine. At that stage I asked what number they called, and they had called a different number than the one in their email to me. Who knows how they came up with the number, but regardless we had no reservation.
After admitting it was their error they offered no apology and asked if we still wanted the cab. They said they would call back with an ETA for a car. Did not hear from them for 15 minutes so we drove ourselves to a wine tasting which my wife enjoyed, me not so much since I had to drive home. Do not use Desert Cab if you need or want to get anywhere.view less
I want to give them 0 stars. Don't ever use these scam artists. I needed 2 cabs and was quoted $40 for 2 cabs. When they arrived, I was told $40 EACH! We paid the first cab the $40 but before we could talk to the second cab, it sped off with our guests inside who were not expecting to pay for the cab ride. These criminals held our guests hostage until we gave them a credit card number. Don't use these crooks.Share Review

I was in Vegas On July 6th, 2011 and I was staying at the Venetian and a friend and I wanted to meet down on Fairmont Street for the concerts. So I stood in line to wait for a CAB. They got a cab for me and it was Cab #4224 It was a Hyndai Sonata and I remember the guy opening door saying WATCH your head. I got in car. and I went to put my seatbelt on and I felt like i almost broke my neck. Seriously Do not RIDE in these cabs if you are taller then 5 FEET. 5 ft 0 yes because thi...view mores car is not for anyone who is taller than that. I am 5 feet 5 and i went to pull the stupid seatbelt around me but it was stuck in seat and when i lifted up i realized how small the backseat is and how less of head room you have. I complained and the driver was so rude. my neck was in pain. I think that this cab company is lowsy and CHEAP. The driver had a really rude attitude. WAIT ASK for a big cab becasuse these little cabs are great for tiny short people 5 feet and under but not for regular sized people and I find it really silly that they would even have these cabs in las vegas.
I repeat if you get a cab in Vegas make sure if you use this company that you use a BIgger SEDAn Hyndai Sonata the headroom is curved you have no head room this is not a CAB car. Seriously. I had awful experience. every since then i always ask for a SUV or s BIG CAR no small carsview less
