    Great trip report, we love Chinos too and have been worried and scared for him. There is nothing like the early days of BBG. They were all a great team. We won't see Chinos in April but We hope september he'll take his rightful place on the boobs cruise again.

    We would love to know about this as well, since we are getting the round trip private transfer from USA Transfers...and would like for it to actually BE private!

    Just an update on the issue we had with our return transfer to the airport....

    Turns out it wasn't USA Transfers fault at all. We had asked our travel agent to let our transfer operator (Nolitours) know that we wouldn't be using their vehicle, just so they wouldn't be looking for us at the airport when we arrived. I'm guessing she either didn't tell them, or told them we only needed them for our return transfer, because it was them that picked us up.

    We're partially to blame as well....we were sitting outside the resort, waiting for our shuttle, after a week of little sleep and mucho alcohol...and when the van pulled up and the driver called our name, we didn't even think about it...we just jumped in. Had we been a little more on the ball, we would have noticed there was no USA Transfer logo to be seen anywhere, either on the van or the driver...which there should have been. (Of course, there was no Nolitours logo anywhere either...which would have definitely tipped us off)

    Our bad. We'll definitely be using USA Transfers next year when we go....we're sure our return transfer would have been just as delightful as our initial transfer....had we not been out to lunch.


    Now, if you'll excuse us...we're off to try and figure out how we're going to work a 10 day trip next year.... ;)

    Thanks for posting the update re USA Transfers, I knew it sounded out of character for them.

    In discussion with Brant, the owner, we suspected you'd taken a different transfer company as the USA Transfers system had you down as a no show, which means their driver looked for you but couldn't find you. Obviously, you'd already left!

    Anyhow glad we got to the bottom of it :)

    Hi guys,

    Just so you don't feel too bad, we did exactly the same thing.
    Having arrived and found the USAT rep, we did the decent thing and called
    the Cosmos rep over to explain that we didn't need the operators transfers.

    The Cosmos rep dutifully noted this on his sheet and we confirmed that this would also be the case for the return journey.

    Jump forward 658 rum and cokes, 924 screwdrivers, too much food and a completely awesome boobs cruise! and we took our final shower in the spa before sitting down for a last drink for the last hour before our scheduled 5.15 PM pickup.

    No sooner sat down and mixed the drinks than a screaming bell boy yelling our name across the Paty'o that our transfer was here, waiting.....quick.....quick!

    But it's only just gone 4pm! Our flight's not til 8.pm!!!
    Quick check on the email confirmed the time but the driver wasn't having it!
    "I have to go, you'll have to get a taxi"

    As we were fortunately ready we then grabbed the bags and jumped on not wanting to cough up for another fare unnecessarily.

    Driver set off like something out of Mad Max as he'd apparently been waiting since 4.00pm. Now 20 past, he was a man possessed!

    Then Val noticed that we had 5 other people on the bus and said that there should be no more than 3 for the $55.00 all in fare.

    That's when the penny dropped and she asked the guy in front if this was the Cosmos bus..........Yes!

    Shit! That means we now have a load of pickups to do and no last drink either! Gutted!

    We felt so bad that the USAT guy would be waiting that we contacted the USAT rep at the airport and asked him to call in and tell them that we got on the wrong bus!

    Journey with USAT was great so would definitely use them again.
    And definitely not their fault.

    Cheers all

    Val & Dean

    I can see how that "taking the wrong ride back" thing can happen after a n initial week at TTR. Very understandable.
