he is no cheaper....taxi fares are dictated by the govt.
the reason many love bully is because he is
and did i say a KIND, lovely, huggable wonderful gentleman.
and if you ever meet his wife and son, you would want them to be friends or part of your family.
his son kevin, has captured my heart.

Last year we had Bully picking us up to go back to the airport. He apparently picked another party up about an hour before we were scheduled to go. He told the Bell Captain to tell us not to worry, if he couldn't make it back for us (as he had a pick-up also) someone would be there for us. We walked up to the lobby and the Bell Captain came right over to us and said - I have a message from Bully. We were so impressed that he took the time to make sure we knew it might not be him, but he would take care of us. He is a gentle man in every sense of the word. We are looking forward to seeing him in March. Maybe we better stop telling everyone how great he is though - we might not be able to book him when we need him

I always have him "pencil us in" for our dates of travel and then "book" him when we have our flights booked with the flight information.
Another reason why we chose to use him originally was to have someone greet us at the airport. It was our daughter's first trip to Aruba to celebrate her adoption and we wanted it to be special.
We have continued to use him for all of our trips to the island. Now when we arrive at the airport and depart Customs, there is no more sign with our name on it, just a friend waiting with a huge smile and bear hug. Makes our arrival at our "home away from home" that more special.
I didn't tell my boyfriend the first year I booked Bully. He was so surprised when we came out of baggage and, although it wasn't Bully but I think his brother-in law, standing there holding a sign with our names on it. He just looked me like - huh? He was quite impressed that I had done that! And it was all thanks to all of you! I have learned so many tips from this Forum!!
I am sure you are going to get a whole bunch of responses, April in Aruba, but here is my take on Bully visa vie your comments.
Bully is a wonderful person and dependable taxi driver, as our many on the island. However, aside from his pleasant personality the reason we like Bully because of is his incredible dependability(and I am sure many others too) . By that I mean, that if I make a reservation then I know Bully OR SOMEONE will be there to pick me up. Bully and his "group" are all cut from the same cloth as Bully, if you know what I mean? If Bully can't come then I don't mind if Hubert, Ivan, Tito or whomever comes as long as someone is there.
On occasion when I just thought I would just grab a taxi instead of calling Bully, I have waited and waited. That happened to us this year. Bully picked up some of our friends at the port and brought them to spend the day with us. Well, we decided to just grab a taxi for them when they want to leave as we weren't sure of their departure time. Big mistake as we waited almost 20 minutes for a taxi and with the afternoon traffic we were concerned they were going to be late.
