Our tour driver, Daryl, was outstanding. - Bob Vislocky


Thank you for arranging the tours again this year and Radcliffe was nothing short of awesome. He did a wonderful job of driving and giving us information we normally would not have gotten. He was a joy to be around, a great conversationalist, is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful sense of humor. Definitely a keeper. We booked another Jamaican visit in 2018 and I am hoping Radcliffe will be around to drive us.

Thanks again Kevin. You and Yardee came through again. - Dom and Amy

Hi Kevin,
Would just like to say what an enjoyable two tours we did with Daryl. An outstanding guide who knowledge was outstanding. We are so glad we booked with you having a very personal touch which we would NOT have had if we had gone with JTL. The tour to Nine Mile was the Highlight capped off with the Dunns River falls in the same day. Even with such poor weather Daryl maintained flexibility and was a fountain of knowledge. An enthusiastic young man who is a credit to your company. I will recommend you to all my friends who will be going on vacation in Jamaica in the future.

When we come back we wont hesitate to contact you to pre book our tours in the future. - Nigel and Lorna Grant


Attention, Mr. Kevin Rose:

Good afternoon. I just wanted to send this brief thank you for our tour this last Thursday. I will be posting an outstanding review on Tripadvisor as soon as I can, but felt it important to tell you a few things briefly. First, Tricia & Nicole were AWESOME. We cant even explain how great our experience was; we both felt that we really saw and experienced your country, which is exactly what we wanted. The visit to the Golden Grove Basic School, and meeting the children, was the highlight of our entire trip. THANK YOU again, and I will write and post our review shortly. Take care.
(Ruby Princess, 11/6/2014). - Keith & Rebekah Dobuler


Just want to say how excellent Blue Hole was today and how brilliant we thought your service and Earl was. Thanks for looking after us x - Julia Bradshaw


Kevin-

The tour was great. Our driver was extremely good and very nice, Daryl. He explained a lot to us as we passed. Our trip started at the Blue Hole. This was amazing! Much better than Dunns River Falls. Our guide there was named Devroe. He was spectacular. He helped our young kids enjoy the jumps they felt comfortable with.

We then went to rafting at the white river. This was delayed by it being a crowded day and not having enough rafts. When we finally got on the river we were guided by Rafael and his team lead by Javon. They were also very nice and great guides. Thanks again for another good experience in Jamaica with your company. - Kent V. Hasen, M.D.


We had a good time. Darryl was GREAT!

Thank you for a good time! - La\Twan and Renetta


The pick up at the pier,Richie,the beach and water, and best of all the service with the food and our girl. Nadeem I think. It was the best experience. The price was great and the food the best ever. Even better we did not have to compete with all the cruise people even though we were on the same cruise. I told everybody we met on the ship about our experience. Hope they listen for their next cruise when they visit Jamaica. Thank you Yardie Tours. - Burkeson, Robert,Penelope


Liked most of all our guide Jerome.... he was so charming and knowledgeable and he really showed us parts of Ochos Rios that I am sure other tours did not see. So, thank you for your great tour and send appreciation to Jerome - Arlene Alpert


We enjoyed the sites we saw at nine mile and dunns river. However Radcliffe went out of his way to make it perfect. Little side tours, lunch at Scotchies. Personal service was exceptional. Loved the conversation and the beauty of the areas we saw. I'm going to make a post on trio advisor when I get home. It was a perfect day. - Lisa MacIntyre


Hello Kevin,
We had a wonderful time on our White River tubing adventure on Tuesday, January 28 (the Pratts). Our tubing guide, Vivian (I think was his name?) was excellent. Jerome, our driver, was an excellent tour guide and shared a lot of information about Jamaica and it's history. He was also accommodating and made stops for shopping at our request.

Thanks so much for your assistance. We will definitely book with Yardie Tours if we make it back to Jamaica! - Marcy Pratt


Very well organized, excellant service.Very well run excrusion. I plan to publish a review. - cruisinbob


We thoroughly enjoyed our driver and guide, Christopher. He answered all our questions and we never felt rushed.
We will recommend your tour to anyone coming to Jamaica. Never having been there before, we wanted to see the country, not just the cruise port.

We were 100% satisfied. - Pam and Tom Troutman


We loved our tour guide Alicia. It was so great to have the whole garden mostly to ourselves. We almost had our whole family there (29) and every age group had a great time. It was so nice of Alicia to take us to get real Jamaican jerk and goat curry.

Great place for a tour. We loved the falls and the aviary. - Myrna Towers


LOVED THE DUNN'S RIVER FALLS CLIMB WITH ANDRE
TRICIA WAS AN ENTHUSIASTIC AND INFORMATIVE GUIDE. - LINDA INDOVINA


The horseback riding on the beach was amazing! I have never done something like that. I also enjoyed the history tour from our guide.

Overall it was an amazing trip! - Tatiana

Yardie was great will definitely use Yardie my next vacation to Jamaica.

Tell Radcliffe Steve and Connie said hello and thanks. Nuff Respect to Yardie and Radcliffe. - Stephen McAllister


The convenience of having our own personal driver. Radcliffe rocks!! He was very informative and assured us that we would have a good time on the tour. He made us feel very welcome and safe. - linda greene


We are home now. I wanted to let you know how much fun we had. The kids absolutely were thrilled with their first river tubing. It was such a great day. Your tour guide was terrific and filled with great information. We will always refer our friends to you. Thanks again for filling our day with great fun and forever memories! - faye


The driver and tour guide was knowledgeable and very professional. They made the tour very enjoyable!

Couldn't have made it any better.Nicole Cole was perfection. Very nice personable person. - Pam Barniville


Our driver George was great. Very nice guy. We had a great time... Thank you! - Matt

Christopher was the best tour guide ever! - Camille Robinson


Loved the tour Karlene was a very nice knowledgable strong woman who was awesome, she made us feel safe as well as our driver Sean was a terrific driver... I would recommend yardi tours any day. Hope to come back soon to see more with yardi tours. A++ :-)

LOVE! - Melissa


The best part of all the tours is that it becomes a very personal tour. What I mean by that is you can stop anywhere along the way for that special photo or sample some local foods. You will never get this through the resort tours. Yardie staff are all very knowledgeable and make sure your safety is top priority. Top notch tour company.

Will always use Yardie Tours when in Jamaica. - Chris Vanderteems


The Zip Line Tour was amazing from start to finish. I can't pick just one thing that was the most enjoyable - everything was wonderful!

Nicole was our driver and she was AWESOME! She was on time, polite and courteous, and shared information about Jamaica while we drove to our zip line tour. We enjoyed riding with her and had a great time! - A. Sheets


The BOB Marley TOUR was the BEST! Our driver Cliff was very knowledgeable about the various sites in route to Nine Mile. Fuzzy, our guide at BOB Marley museum, was a true GEM. Loved sitting and talking with him about the history of the natives, BOB Marley, and Ocho Rios.

I would highly recommend the BOB Marley/Dunns TOur to anyone coming here and to use Yardie Tours. - C. Boykin-Whitley


Our tour was excellent! Marlon was very friendly and courteous. My wife suffers from motion sickness and he was extra cautious in his driving and when she was not feeling well, he found a nice spot for us to pull over and take a rest. He was never in a rush and let us enjoy our tour at our own pace.

I would definitely recommend Marlon and your tour company. You (Kevin) were so easy to work with when planning the trip and I will be making my experience known on Trip Advisor as well.

RESPECT - Amit


The ride through the countryside going to birthplace of Bob Marley. On the way school children came out and sang for us.

Everyone very nice and feel we surely got our moneys worth. Our driver, Chris was very accomadating and answered all questions. - L. Blubaum


Great tour options for reasonable prices. Our guide, Nicole, was wonderful! She went above and beyond what we expected.

Kevin;
Excellent tour and the two(2)ladies driver and guide were wonderful. I plan to write my review on Trip Advisor, keep up the good service. - Bob


The most enjoyable part of my tour was my tour guide, Nicole. She was gracious and full of personality. To top it off her information was informative.
I cannot think of anything that would make this experience any better.
My tours were done over two days. My tour guide was on time everyday. The locations chosen for the tours were excellent. The horseback riding was wonderful. The company representatives were helpful and fun. When I return to Jamaica, I will call on Yardie Tours for a good time. - Chundra M.


It was perfect. We loved the activities that we chose to do, Dunns River Falls and river tubing. We also enjoyed having our own private driver and not Avignon to wait or a group.

Would definitely recommend you to family and fiends. - N. Aines

We all extremely enjoyed it. The best tour I have ever been on!!! Very informative and educational! Great job Christopher and Yardie Tours! We cannot thank you enough.

Everything was just great! - D. Bakova with family

Christopher was a wonderful tour guide! We loved visiting Dunn River Falls and the tubing was fun. I was impressed with Christopher getting our tickets to the attractions without my group having to stand in line. We truly appreciated the VIP treatment Christopher provided.

I am glad I made the decision to take a tour with Yardie Tours. I would definitely recommend your company in the future. Thank you! - A. Corbett


We loved the river boarding, our guides were very attentive and safety conscious. Our driver Sean was incredibly courteous and informative.

Thank you Yardie Tours for a fantastic job! - L. Flattery


I loved the countryside tour. We stopped to see Dennis the spice man and that was great. The mountains were beautiful, and we enjoyed the coffee farm. The stop at the school was really nice. I liked being "off the beaten path" and away from the tourist spots.

Carlene and Nicole were great. They were very informative and fun tour guides. Carlene looked out for us if anyone got too aggressive trying to sell stuff to us. We felt very safe with her around. I would tell any friends going to Jamaica to book their excursions through Yardie Tours. - E. Eldridge


It was perfect! Probably the BEST tour we have EVER taken! - N. Steffen


We enjoyed the flexibility our tour guide gave us. We saw so much of your beautiful country in our tour and he was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Your staff was friendly, helpful and did a great job. Thanks for all you did. - R. Lollar


Absolutely fantastic day, so glad we found your company.

- J.smith


My husband and I had a great time on both tours that we booked through Yardie. we were taken to green grotto caves and the electricity was out, so we had to go to Dunn's river falls first, and then returned to the caves later in the day, which was great of your company to do for us, instead of not letting us go to the caves at all that day. the tour guides on both that tour and the tour up to nine mile were friendly and helpful. we had a great time, thank you!!! - A. Kornack


We are now back home, and on behalf of our company I would like to thank you all, and especially miss Alicia, for giving us a warm welcome in Jamaica. We all have had a wonderful time while in Ocho Rios. - Maxim ACADEMTOUR


Earl was Awesome! Very informative and accommodating. He also made sure we were very protective. Felt safe with him while off the resort. Great guy-Loved him and he gave us several cards when we parted. We gave to people at the resort when we got back and recommended they call for a tour. If ever come back, we will certainly use your company again. - Brenda


We had a great time on both parts of our tour.
Our tour guide for the horseback riding was wonderful.

Nothing could have made it better. - B. Thornton-Coleman


Everything was perfect!
The tour was amazing. I enjoyed seeing all the sights but mostly talking to our driver- Shaw- who was very knowledgeable, professional and pleasant.

Again, great job Shaw! Thank you so much for an amazing day in Jamaica! - J. Reczek


The tour guides, Carlene and Nichole, took such good care of us and made the trip so entertaining, beyond a cruise ship tour, we appreciated there help and information along the way.

Earl our driver. So helpful,friendly knowledgeable and just great. Nothing was too much trouble. Stopped for photo shoots. Plus Kevin our first contact with Yardie who was so helpful and made sure we booked the right trips for us. Such great service that we even booked another trip with Earl.

Earl & Yardie are great

Have a look on Trip Advisor as I wanted others who are travelling to Jamaica to experience what we did with Yardie. You were great. - S. Beshaw


I enjoyed all the fun activities, such as Dunn's River Falls, Beach Horseback Riding, River Tubing, and Bamboo Rafting.

Our driver and tour guide Nicole was very professional. She drove us around and introduced us to the city and shops. Even though she wasn't the tour guide for the activities, she waited for us and when we finished those activities she was always there ready to pick us up. We felt safe leaving our bags in her car. We had a great time. - C. Chan


Thank you for the experience! Our tour guide,Christopher was awesome! He was professional, courteous, and knowledgeable! - D. Fairbairn


We loved the horseback riding on the beach tour the most. Our tour guides were the absolute best, they went above and beyond to assure our horseback riding experience was the best. Our Tour Guide, Nicole was also the best.

I am very glad we booked our shore excursion through Yardie Tours. Not only were they better in price than the competition, they were also the most friendliest and prompt. We plan on vacationing in Ochos Rios next year (Apr 2013) and will definitely book all of our excursions through Yardie Tours, we will also be requesting Nicole as our Tour Guide again! - S. Dudley


The activities were very fun but I have to say that spending time with Nicole and Earl were highlights for us as well. Each morning we were greeted with a big smile and good energy. They went out of their way to make us feel the "Jamaican love mon"!

I love how well Yardie Tours accommodated us even when we didn't have reservations. Love you guys!! Hope to see you again in the near future!

Yardie Tours seriously has their business in order! From the time I booked the trip until the very end. Quick responses to my emails was very appreciated. I can tell you make it your #1 priority to make the visitors feel welcomed in your country! - V. Ramirez


The river tubing was the best part of the tour. Our Guide was wonderful. Sang songs the whole way.

Driver was very nice. Nice driving skills. Good tour guide. - K. Hasen


Nothing more could have made our tour better.

Transport was on time.The pace of the tour was just right.Wonderful views across ochi rios.Dunnes river was fantastic.Lunch at Scothies was perfect.
Earl was the perfect tour guide.

It was a perfect tour and great value for money. - C.l Williams


The horse guides were fun and informative. At Dunns falls our guides were great. Well worth the cost. Our driver was very accommodating. - C Fears


Earl was an excellent guide. He's a lovely man. Favourite stops were Harmony House, the battle ground (to our surprise!), and the drive through Fern Gully and the village of Cole Gate. Oh, and the patties at Juici Patty were awesome.

We loved our tour. Would have loved to do more and stay longer in various places to talk to people such as Dennis the Spice Man, but were somewhat limited by our sleepy toddler. Will definitely write a TripAdvisor review. - E Geringas


Everything on the tour was as described. Nicole was very friendly. Thanks for a great day! We will recommend Yardie Tours to our friends. - K. Lueck


The driver and tour guide were both very nice and answered all of our questions as well as stopped to allow us to take pictures.

Great service, will recommend to friends! - M. Yeager


Radcliff was the highlight of our complete vacation. That man outshines all the rest and bends over backwards to make life better for strangers in your land. It may have been just his daily tour to him, but it was exceptional to all three of us.

Isnt life strange, we never thought that day we toured with your facility and got to know a total stranger for only a portion of a day, would probably in ways change ours lives and thoughts forever ( may I add-to the better).

I have owned 5 businesses, am a real estate broker, daughter with me is in the banking business, Rex a sharp man that doesnt always take to people, we know quality in a staff member and you have the man.
I would recommend him to everyone, and if we ever have the opportunity to return to Jamaca we WILL without a doubt look him up where ever he may be, if possible.

We will always remember him with great love and respect. You are fortunate and should feel honored to have him in your company.

It was the best,God Bless you all. - M. callaway


Radcliff was a joy to be with and was very informative and gave us tips regarding the vendors at the falls. - D. Purchase


we reserved out tirip ahead of time and found yardie tours thru trip adivsor all of the reviews were great. We had emailed Kevin several times asking many questions and decided to book a private tour to great house at rose hall, dunns river falls, scotchies for lunch and a tour of ocho rios. Upon pick up Ray ( our driver and tour guide) was prompt and his car was clean and air conditioned. Once we started out Ray gave us a history lesson and made us feel right at ease. frist stop was the great house at rose hall which was just down the road from our hotel Ray gave a brief lesson and explained that the tour guide would also give as history lesson once inside.

At Dunns River ray took us right up to the entrance and explained where he would meet us after the climb up and he would be waiting. After the climb there was Ray just like he said waiting for us. Next was lunch at Scotchies great food, friendly people and we got to know our driver/tour guide even more over lunch. (you have to try the jerk pork and chicken)

Lastly the tour of Ocho Rios was fun and Ray also gave us another history lesson. and then dropped off at our hotel.

Book thru these guys you will not be disappointed. and asked for RAY

thanks once again
Yardie

- B. Kusunoki


Everything was perfect! Our tour guide, Christopher, was amazing!! He was so knowledgeable and friendly! - T. Demmin


Tour was perfect. Thank you so much. We had a great time.

Earl took the four of us in a van which had plenty of room. Took us to Dunn River Falls early to avoid the crowds. Stayed with us the entire time and helped us locate a DVD that we had purchased.

Earl took great care of us at the falls and river tubing location. The guys at the tubing were very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed the excursions. Thanks again. - M. A. Smith


Shaw and Alicia were great on March 15th. I'm pretty sure Shaw went back to Dunns Falls to get our dvd that wasn't ready when we left. Thanks for the great day. Loved stopping at Spice Mountain and talking with Dennis. We will be trying the chicken spice tomorrow night. - V. Thielking


I liked being met right away at the ship port and then being brought to the falls. **The falls was really good too.... - K. Skepper


We had the best time in Jamaica and we owe it to our driver, Earl!!!! He was so wonderful and knowledgeable!
Earl went out of his way to give us a personal Jamaican experience. We also loved the falls and the zip lining!
Our tour was perfect...even the long ride from the airport to the hotel was made fun by Earl!

Thank you, thank you to Yardie Tours and to Earl!!!!! We will definitely be back and we will be seeing Earl again! - Jennifer


We enjoyed the fact that we were able to visit Nine miles and climb the Dunn's River waterfalls in the same day.

Christopher was a great tour guide and made us feel totally at ease thoughout the day. - D. Pownall


Whole experience was delightful from the start to finish. Your employee made us feel welcome and also gave us a history of Jamaica as we we're traveling to the site. Fantastic time had by all. - K. Tye


Thanks for a great time, we'll be back! - T. Poirier


The tour was one of our most memorable ports on our cruise and Radcliffe was the best! Nine Mile and Dunn River was excellent!! The kids haven’t stopped talking about it!! We totally enjoyed the fact that it was private and the information that Radcliffe provided us about the tour. We will recommend Yardie to everyone we know. Thanks for making us feel at home!! Ya Mon!! Can't wait to return!! - L. Greene


We did the Ocho Rios Highlights and enjoyed seeing the sights of Jamaica. Having never been to Jamaica before, it was refreshing to see it up close.

Shaw was terrific! His narration of the highlights and his sense of humor was fantastic.

You all are fortunate to have him on your staff! - J. Mensh


Christopher was a great guide. We loved the stop at the roadside spice stand.
Christopher made us feel very comfortable. We really enjoyed our visit to Jamaica. - Myra


The easy going manner in which Nicole took us everywhere we wanted to go on our Ocho Rios Highlights and Dunn's Fall tour.
Thank You Nicole for our wonderful day! - Natalie


Raymond was an awesome tour guide and did not think anyone could compare with our previous guide (Shaw) in 2010. They both were AWESOME!!! - S .Hendricks


We toured Dunn's River Falls and then had the Tubing Adventure, led by guide Nicolle. Feb 2, we recall. Both tours were good. Nicolle was very friendly and helpful. - Jay and Bonnie B.


Tour guide was very helpful. Can't ask for anything more. Also, was taken to locations which I did not expect to see which was a great added bonus. On my next trip to Jamaica, you can be assured I will contact you once again for tour arrangements. Thank you very much. - R. Kerimoglu


We enjoyed everything about our tour.Green Grotto Caves is fabulous and Dunn's River was so much fun! Preacher (our driver) was great and we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide.
When we visit Jamaica again we'll definitely use Yardie Tours again! Thank you! - T. Kim


I enjoyed seeing all of the lovely sights. Raymond gave us our tour and he was wondering. He was so full of knowledge. We had so much fun.

I wish we would have had more time, but since we were cruising with Carnival our time was limited.

I can't wait to visit Montego Bay again. I look forward to returning very soon. I highly recommend Raymond as a tour guide and I hope he's available the next time.
- T. Motley-Dockery


Your driver/ guide was the most pleasant gentleman. He was efficient and very easy to deal with. I told other people that we were using Yardie Tours and I believe a group of 8 took the same trip. When I saw them the next day they also thought it was a great trip. Well done!
It was all that I asked for. - D. Winfrow


JEROME!!! He is AWESOME!!! He took care of us in a outstanding way!!
THANK YOU FOR A OUTSTANDING VISIT TO THE ISLAND! - B. Peden


Christopher took us to places most tours don't. I have been to Jamaica many times and saw some things I have never seen before. He was so knowledgeable about his country.It was a pleasure.I didn't know we would get a private car and that was a great surprise!!
Loved the tour! My sister had never been in Jamaica and she really enjoyed all the things we did. Christopher is a real asset to your company. I will be writing a review on TripAdvisor for your company because excellent service deserves to be rewarded. Thank-you for a great tour and guide!! - S. Kirchner


Both tours we great experiences to see some of the beautiful parts of Ocho Rios and all of our guides were great!
Thank you for a great time! - K. Marrone


Friendly tour guide (Christopher English). He took extra time to take us sightseeing.
Next time we will book more time for sightseeing in and around Ocho Rios.
We will book with Yardie Tours again, and will recommend to friends. - Wayne


The best part of our tour was our guide, Shaw. It felt more like getting a tour from a friend than a guide. He was knowledgeable, easy going, interesting, and seemed to genuinely enjoy sharing his knowledge of Jamaican society, culture, etc. I woe recommend him and your company to anyone I know going to Jamaica and wants something more out of their Jamaican experience.

Shaw was amazing and made our trip! - C. Impastato and L. Ballesteros


We loved our tour and tour guide, Nicole. She is so lively, friendly and also really knows her material!
Well done, Nicole!
we also enjoyed the air conditioned van that we drove in. It was perfect!

The tour was really one of the highlights of our holiday. It was wonderful to see the "real" Jamaica.
thank you so much! - G. Levin


Radcliff, our driver, was great! He was so kind to drop us off at a beach after the tour to let us swim. We were just sorry that he didn't return so that we could tip him. He gave us great advice and warned us of the aggressive marketplace people! - Molly & Russ


We didn't really book a tour, we had transportation from the airport to Sandals in Ocho Rios with a stop at Scotchies. We had a very nice driver, Radcliffe, who took very good care of us and made our drive from the airport enjoyable. We will use Yardie Tours again. Happy New Year.
We were very happy with our service. - J. Barrow


Hi Kevin, thanks to yourself and Christopher for an extremely wonderful day - despite the rain. Christopher took GREAT care of us - and i DO appreciate it. We loved the impromptu stops - sugar cane and coconut stop with the fellow that looked SO much like Morgan Freeman (the movie star) and Dennis - I'm SO excited to try the fresh AMAZING spices - we don't have anything like this at home (ok, we have snow, bears, polar bears, the Rockies).

I know that our experience with Christopher will last us a lifetime. - Karen


I was impressed how friendly and accommodating Nicole was everything was great.

Thank you so much to Nicole, she was amazing - K. Krapivina


Thanks so much for an awesome tour, was one of the best days on my vacation.

I loved our Tour the 2 places we went to were really nice beautiful places. Our tour guide was really nice explain things about Jamaica as we were driving and very helpful when setting us up at our activities. - K. Alger


We loved being off the beaten track and seeing some real life. The school was fabulous to visit, and going to eat the barbecued chickens delicious!

We would have loved some more time to interact with the children in the school, however the couple we were with did not know we were going so didn't want to hold them up!

Sutton was very friendly and accomodating for all our needs - we would thoroughly recommend this tour! - E. Fraser


We visited Dunn's River Falls while in port on a cruise in November 2011. Our tour guide was Christopher English. His knowledge and love of Jamaica made the tour great. The river was fun, but learning about the history of the island from someone who lives there was the most fun for us.

Your tour guide, Christopher English, is a treasure. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about his country. He, as much as the beauty of the island itself, made our tour memorable. - J. Smith


Nicole! She made the event more than a normal tour. She was very hospitable and knew her island. Thank you Nicole for adding to a great vacation.

We would return and use your services again. Friendliness means everything to me regarding customer service. Nicole was a model of that idea. - S. Brown


Glen was THE MOST AMAZING guide and we LOVE HIM....Thank you so much, our time with you was the best part of our vacation.

We had the best time with Glen....Please give him our best. We love you Glen! - R. Yeoman


Both Dunn's River and River Tubing were great,my tour guide Nicole was awesome. She gave me some history of Ocho Rios and was very pleasant.
Thanks again Ms. Nicole - Kareema A


You guys were great! - K. Hansen


Hello from cold England.

Sorry for the delay in responding we have to get back in to the work mode and back to reality etc. We had a fab time with you guys and have completed the survey and will add a review to Trip Advisor. We have already recommended you to a work colleague who is visiting the island for her honeymoon next month so fingers crossed she will contact you.

There is nothing better than having guides who are knowledgeable and flexible in order to meet your needs and that is what your company offered us. We raved about you back at the hotel and a couple that we met had relied on receiving the information from the holiday rep and purchasing trips from her but after listening to us may well change their methods and purchase trips from local companies as you can offer much more.

So many many thanks, take care and when we return to Jamaica we will be in touch but we will also make sure anybody that we know is coming to the island we will forward your details on.

Best wishes - Caroline & Mark K.


Great Tour Guide and really great destinations!
Christopher was our tour guide and he was fantastic. He really took care of us. He gave us lots of information about Jamaica. He took us into dolphin cove and Dunns river and actually showed us where things where and where we could do different activities, which was great! He also took us to a Jamaican Restaurant for real' Jerk Chicken! We had a fantastic time with him and at each other our destinations.

Thank you! - C. Tebbutt


My favorite thing was visiting with the Spiceman but the whole experience was rather wonderful. We loved learning about the wonderful Jamaican culture and its people. Dunn's was a wonderful end to the trip as it was very refreshing! Nicole was a wonderful guide as well.

Wonderful all around! - M. Wicklein


I enjoyed being able to do two tours in one. The driver made it possible for us to do everything we needed in addition to going out of his way to make sure I had enough time for a lunch and shopping at a supermarket. - Yatzie


The great personality of the tour guide who led us up the path of rocks was "uplifting." His combination of humor and seriousness was a nice balance. We felt safe and had fun.

The drivers who drove us each way, Shaw and Nicole, were professional, punctual, and welcoming. I appreciate Shaw's explanation of the land and local history en route to the falls. And I am grateful for Nicole's patience in stopping so our kids could play on the Jamaican beach! That was above and beyond the call of a driver! GREAT TOUR and HIGHLY recommended to others! - Denise & Mark


We had a lovely time with Shaw. He took us on the trip to nine mile and showed us lots of interesting sights on the way. He managed to get us in a group with Captain Crazy which was great fun. On the way home he stopped so I could take some photos of some beautiful flowers. That day there was a problem with the tour bus so we were very lucky and Shaw used Earls car which was better for the winding roads on the way to nine mile.

Our second tour was a trip to go river rafting. We were supposed to go to the white river but some rocks had blocked the river so we were really lucky and we were taken all the way to Martha Brae. It was beautiful and we loved the rafting trip. Shaw drove us back through Falmouth so we could see the new ferry port and the old buildings in the historic part of town. Then we popped into St Ann's as we had requested a stop at Juicy Patties! Shaw helped us in the shop and made sure we got what we wanted from the menu.

We were sad to say goodbye at the end of our trip and we would love to come back to Jamaica again one day. If we do we will be booking some Yardie tours. Shaw is very kind and helpful and he has lots of interesting knowledge about Jamaican culture and history to share. Kevin has also been so helpful with his organizational skills to ensure that we had the best time possible. Thanks so much guys!

Thank you for making our Jamaica holidays so memorable and special! - L. Cassford


Great service. We appreciated David, the tour guide at the garden, and Preacher was an excellent driver. Earl helped steer us in the right direction at the pier.

Kevin was very accomodating, friendly and helpful with multiple changes to our guest number and a last-minute late arrival for our boat. We will recommend Yardie to our friends and give positive feedback on Trip Advisor. Thank you! - C. McDermott


Our tour was to Dunn's River Falls with our 3 kids and their spouses and 4 grand-kids(12total)the "event" was the best according to all. - L. Featherstone


Nicole took great care of us from the car ride to the peddlers. She took us to great places and we really saw the "real" Jamaica. She even stopped and bought us guinep for us to try. We loved the Falls and especially loved Dennis at Spice mountain. Patties at Mother's and Jerk at Scotchie's was great too!

Thank you so much for making this tour so great. Communication with Kevin was quick and answered all our questions! Definitely recommending Yardie! Thanks!
- J. Galuppo


We used Yardie Tours for transportation from Montego Bay airport to our hotel in Ocho Rios. It was are first time using this tour operator as we usually use JTL (Jamaica Tour Lines). I have to say every aspect of this company impressed me. From booking to being dropped off after our vacation. The driver Ms. Nicole was amazing, she always had a smile on her face and had plenty of good suggestions from where to eat, shop, have fun! Mr. Kevin in the office answered all my questions and did so in a timely manner via e-mail, he was very helpful. Overall, we will always be using Yardie Tours when we visit Jamaica in the future.

You guys are the best! - A. Zolghadr


Very pleasant driver/guide. The Falls were awesome.Had a great time. Thank you for delivering everything you promised. - R. Aleman


Nicole was wonderful as our guide. We have never been disappointed by any Yardie tour that we have gone on.

Again, Kevin is wonderful in getting everything arranged and I truly enjoy working with him in getting everything worked out. Nicole is a very special lady and we very much enjoyed our time with her. She made each tour better with her wonderful personality. - D. Cannata


Chris - our tour guide - He was very professional and knowledgeable about the History of the area and the tours - a pleasure to spend a few hours with.

The tours - especially H'Evans Scent far exceeded our expectations, although the pole climb was very difficulty for those of us over 60.

Chris again - we cannot say enough. My niece wanted some guineps and the next morning as he picked us up, he brought her a bag of guineps. Such hospitality.
- A. Taylor


The tour was fantastic, my guide Kevin was brilliant and very friendly. Floating along the river was so relaxing.

This tour is great and a must for everyone, i will definatley do it again when i next visit. Thank you Yardie tours for a breathtaking experience. - R. Odigie


Nicole was our driver. She was great. Very funny and we felt very at home with her. She was very informative and took us to see great places in addition to the main attractions Dunns River Falls, Dolphin Swim & Spiceman. It was a lot of fun.... I would recommend Yardie Tours again. - R. H. Williams


EVERYBODY LOVED THE WHITE WATER TUBING AND THEY HAD A GREAT TIME CLIMBING THE DUNN'S RIVER FALLS !!!

THERE WAS NOTHING MISSING, IT WAS TOTALLY GREAT.

OUR BUS TOUR GUIDE WAS FANTASTIC AND THE GUYS WHO HELPED US AT THE TUBING AND AT THE FALLS WE EXTREMELY COURTEOUS AND VERY VERY ATTENTIVE TO ALL OUR NEEDS. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. YOU MADE OUR STAY IN JAMAICA UNFORGETTABLE. - J. LONDONO


We had a blast with your company! Christopher was amazing!!
Christopher was so wonderful!! He made our vacation!! He took us to Scotchies - We were wanting to go for over a year!! It was amazing! Our resort was not that great, and spending time with Chris taking us around the island was truly what saved our vacation :) - M. Skifter



Thank you for all your service to us! It was great.
He gave us a lot of information about Jamaica as he drove and pointed out many things to us. He was exceptionally polite and provided great service. - L. Wilson


Kevin;
I really enjoyed your company and the services that you all provided. I am planning for next year and I will plan better. With that been said, I will like to use your company again next. I am making the plans and I will keep every thing from this year and I will organize it better and give you all the lay outs.

Again thank you for your time and consideration. Please tell our driver and tour guide we really enjoyed him so much. - T. Newsome


Very courteous and informative tour guide - every aspect was "as advertised" - no disappointments.

Earl was great - we had an immediate sense of trust with him - he even took video and photos using our camera as we headed down the river tubing adventure.
- P Macheske


Very friendly and knowledgeable tour staff. Shaw was a great driver (and singer!); and Alicia wonderful tour guide. Overall wonderful -- will reccomend you to everyone!! - Phyllis


Being a die hard Bob Marley fan 9 Mile was just great and Christopher English made our tour very enjoyable. He gave us a history and background of Jamaica which I would never have known.

The package for 9 Mile/Dunn's River was perfect and exactly what I was looking for!

Your packages are great I would def. come back and go for going to schools next time. That's just a great addition to your package please don't ever remove it. - Sohily R


Our driver Radcliffe made our trip awesome! We will recommend Yardie tours to anyone that goes to Jamaica. - Jacquie


Our tours were the best!!Both of our tour destinations were awesome! Our tour guide Nicole was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable! We had the best time in Jamaica thanks to your tours personalized service. We will book all of our excursions through Yardie next time we are in Jamaica!
Kevin also provided excellent customer service in booking our tours. Thank You !! - Kathy S


Tours were excellent. I fulfilled a lifetime ambition of horse riding on the beach and in the surf and Dunn's Falls was quite breath taking. - Brian B


Awesome!My kids said Jamaica was their favorite port...mostly due to Shaw and the great tour! Thanks Yardie! - Laura D


Being with such a pleasant tour guide Nicole. We enjoyed traveling to our destinations...and the beautiful countryside and people were awesome.
I think Nicole was AWESOME! My entire family felt safe and very welcomed by her. She had a wonderful way about her that we haven't experienced on other vacations. We will request her in the future and hope she is well compensated for her hard work.She is a great person and we will never forget her. Thank her again from us all! - Mark J


Your staff was WONDERFUL!!! Thank you so much for everything - we we're so pleased with the ease and convenience of booking online and everything went smoothly - we would gladly recommend you to anyone traveling to Jamaica. Thank you!!! - Debbie C


We couldn't have been more pleased with our experience.When booking an excursion not affiliated with the cruise line you always have questions on whether you did the right thing ! Not with Yardie Tours,they are very professional and give you the most bang for your buck !!! - Bruce O


Dear Kevin,

We recently stayed at the Riu in Ocho Rios in March and booked two trips with Yardie tours. One to see the countryside and one for Dunn's river.

Our tour guide was Shaw (is that the correct way to spell it?) We just wanted to say what a wonderful time we had. As we went on a day when there were no cruise ships we were so lucky as it was just us two and Shaw and he made the tour so special by telling us lots of interesting facts and answering all of our questions. It was like having a brother in Jamaica to take us around and look out for us. He made sure we had the best time. We really loved visiting the school in Golden Grove.
Arriving at Dunns river falls early was perfect and Shaw made sure that we got safely in a group with a good guide and was there to after we had finished browsing in the shops.
Thanks again and please pass our special thanks to Shaw.All the best from England! - Louisa and Leonie.


Everything was great! The guides were knowledgeable, friendly and fun. All the excursions were fun and safe. We loved the fact that they took the time to tell us the history of Jamaica and stopped at local places for real authentic food and culture.Everyone should use Yardie Tours!!! - Stacey and Reed


We expected others to be on the tour as well and the fact it was only us allowed us to set our own pace and stop when we liked.Shaw was exceptional and we really enjoyed having him as guide.We saw what we wanted and the fact it was at our own pace really made it special.

The weather was perfect and Shaw was fantastic. We very much enjoyed our day.I really would recommend Shaw to anyone taking your tours.

Jamaica is a beautiful island.I wish everyone would take the time to see how very enjoyable and friendly it is. We'll definitely come back. - Glen D


We loved our driver. She was warm, funny, and just a lot of fun to be with. We would chose her as a friend if we lived in Jamaica! We appreciated her services and yours, and we had a really wonderful time.

We loved seeing where Noel Coward wrote and where he derived his inspiration. It was thrilling and beautiful and possibly one of the highlights of our lives. - Barry and Theresa P


Coming off the cruise ship, we weren't sure how the logistics would work out, but it was perfect. Our tour guide, Christopher, was excellent and extremely customer service oriented.We could not have asked for a better day. The only thing to improve it was that there would have been more hours in our day. We will recommend your tour group. - Stephen B


Very pleased with entire company and that responses to email we're always prompt and informative. Vehicles were safe and so was the driver, Earl. Was a great tour and I would highly recommend Yardie tours to anyone going to Jamaica. I also gave your name to several people at the hotel looking for tours.

Earl was great. He gave us enough information on the tour and a great look at the wonderful people of Jamaica. There were 4 of us in the group and we haven't stopped talking about the great tour of Ocho Rios and Dunn's River was great. - Wendy V


Thanks for creating a day which I will never forget and keep on doing what you are doing!
Shaw was very enthusiastic and told us so much about the island with his "No Problem Mon" 'style' giving us an incredibly personal tour. He was a superb driver who constantly stopped for us to take some "snap shots, meanwhile showing us the 'special tricks' one needs when driving in Jamaica"! Moreover, he took a detour, going out of his way in bringing us to Scotchies for the local, authentic Jamaican food we were hungry for. He was so thoughtful in checking his bus after dropping us off to our hotel that he found my sisters sunglasses (and of course, returned them.) The Nine Mile experience led me to start enjoying reggae music much more, gain an understanding for your unique island by seeing the "real Jamaica" and having a great time at the same time! Truly an unforgettable experience! I will be recommending Yardie Tours to everyone I know and hope to see you guys as soon as possible! - Tolga B


It was very organized and the people were very friendly. I had to constantly change things and Yardie tours was very accomodating,I think it was great all around, no complaints.You guys were recommended to us and you did not disappoint. Thank you! - Nocole T


Great company to work with - excellent service!
We enjoyed seeing the 'real' parts of Jamaica - not just the tourist spots - on the way to/from ziplining and tubing. Jerome was very friendly and knowledgeable. Ziplining was really fun, and the facility was beautiful. We felt very comfortable there. We wish we had more time there! - Lynn W


I loved the people. You guys are the best! Your staff is very personable and friendly. They are terrific. Jamaica is a beautiful place and as long as Yardie Tours is part of it, I would LOVE to go back and spend more time.

I would have liked to had more time to spent with your people.I would also have liked to had more money to tipped them.

I think the Dunns River is beautiful, but your zipline and plantation tour is much more preferable to me. The River is way too commercialized, too many people. - Audrie L


Our tour guide was brilliant, friendly from the get go, informative and very entertaining!

Everything about the whole process has been great! Kevin was so prompt at dealing with my inquiries and booking so I had complete confidence in using the company! Our driver/ guide was brilliant, we felt he looked after us to the utmost. He was so knowledgeable, pointing out so much to us throughout the day. We felt very safe with him, both whilst driving and also when out and about. The tour was everything we hoped for and was geared entirely to our needs and time schedule, no waiting around like you get on group tours. The price was very reasonable considering what we managed to fit in the day and was worth every penny as it was customized for us! Please thank the driver so much from the two English sisters! I would be sure to use him and your company again when I next come to Jamaica - and it will most definitely be soon! - Lucy E


Yardie Tours was great. I booked thru them because of all of the wonderful feedback other customers had given. As a few others had mentioned Kevin was more than willing to email me ideas. He really help me come up with two wonderful days in Jamaica for my husband's birthday. Earl was on time and super friendly! He was very knowledgeable and made our days pleasant, relaxed and above all easy. Thank you Yardie Tours! - Jessica P


Our guide, Radcliffe was wonderful and very informed. We decided before we got to Ocho Rios what the 6 of us wished to see and Yardie helped us decide the sequence for better enjoyment.Wish we had been able to spend more than 6 hours but the ship's schedule didn't allow it - Stephen S


Everything you recommended was accurate and as-described. We could not have asked for better service, honestly. Radcliff really went out of his way to inform us about the marketplace,and he even acted as our photographer at the falls! a very caring tour guide.Very friendly service, fun events, and transportation was always on time. We enjoyed the horseback riding, waterfalls and dolphin show very much, we will definitely recommend friends and family book tours through Yardie Tours. - Christos X


We did the Dunn's River Falls and the snorkeling. The weather was poor, but our guide (Radcliff) was superior! He was informative, fun, very worthwile to spend time with! The sea was rough, but the snorkeling was spectacular! - Heather P


I just wanted to say thank you for your services, and for Shaw’s services. Shaw made our stay comfortable and memorable and kept us safe. He is great.
When I was booking with Yardie’s on the internet, I wasn’t sure how it will turn out. Now, I can see the reason for many positive reviews for the Company. - Nasreen and Family


We had an amazing tour guide. His name was Chris. I absolutely loved the horseback ride into the ocean. I cant wait to come back and go on more tours that we were unable to attend during this trip. It was a great experience and would recommend Yardie and Chris to all my friends! - Rhea C


Your team deserves he highest marks for their level of professionalism, attention to detail and all around fun nature. Andrew (Earl) was fantastic. I don't know how many times he has to put up with 26 rowdy, loud, obnoxious and crazy family members in his bus, but he got rave reviews from all of the Hogan clan for our trip. The White River float was one of the highlights of our entire cruise vacation. Everyone in the family was still talking about it days later. The guys that guide you down the river were great. And Andrew met us at the end with more Red Stripe! So, all-in-all, I'd rate Yardie Tours a 10+ on a scale of 1-10. We also thoroughly enjoyed seeing the brief portion of your country that we did see. My wife and I are already discussing coming back and staying longer. I'll be sure to tell anyone I meet that is on their way to Jamaica to look up Yardie Tours for all their sightseeing needs. - Hogan Family


Rusty was terrific and gave us an all-around great tour. We loved all of the activities we chose and Rusty made is very personal for us and we really enjoyed his company! Keep up the good work. Rusty was great! Would have no hesitation to book again with Yardie if we are in the area. I will also highly recommend to friends/family if they're going to be in Ocho Rios. Thank you. - Brian & Jocelyn S


Our driver, Rusty, was most friendly and informative. He was very accommodating especially since we were traveling with two seniors. He even helped us order when we weren't sure of what to get at Scotchies! He made some great choices. The jerk chicken was awesome! - Roseanna L


The driver was very accommodating to each of our needs. I feel the tour was great! Yardie Tours you did a great job with accommodating the Tiffany and Jamel J[name removed] Wedding party on our trip! The drive that we had was SUPERIOR! It doesn't get any better than that. Thanks for everything and making my tour the best. I will use your company the next time I'm in Jamaica. - Margaret T


There were so many things that I enjoyed while visiting Jamaica with Yardie Tours. I enjoyed the wonderful hospitality from our tour guide. Shaw was very friendly and gave us a great guided tour of Jamaica. I learned a lot about Jamaica. It was also great to see the area where the movie "Cool Runnings" was filmed.

I do not think the tour could have been improved, because it was already perfect. Everything was just wonderful and I had a great time.

Please tell Shaw that Michael and Jennifer L[name removed] had a great time touring with him. The guided tour and horseback ride was awesome. Thank you so very much. If I visit Jamaica again in the future, I will book again through Yardie Tours. I will recommend your services to anyone I know who will be visiting Jamaica. - Michael & Jennifer L


There are so many things to experience, however, the market in St Ann Bay, and the Chaulky Primary school will always be on my mind. Radcliff was a wonderful host of Jamaica. He treated us so wonderful showing us with much knowledge and pride his country. Our experience with Yardie Tours was incredible from meeting Shaw at the port, to Earl as we were leaving and our day with Radcliff. Wonderful, Wonderful. I will be back someday to Jamaica and will call you, Thank You. - Sharon G


I wanted to let you know that we had a great experience with Yardie. Rusty drove us to Heaven Scent on Wednesday, and Sha took us to 9 mile on Friday. Both driver/guides were very friendly, personable and helpful.
If I hear of anyone heading to the Ocho Rios area I will be sure to send them your way. - Adam S


the whole tour was fantastic, the driver Shaw was great & informative. the horseback riding on the beach was a forever memorable experience would def come back again thank you all for being so hospitable fun & making this trip a memory to cherish! - Gina W


Dunn's River Falls and River Tubing were wonderful. Your staff was the best. I can't say enough about the way your staff, especially Earl and Jerome, treated us. Our family was grouped with another family from the same ship that were going to do the same tours. The other family was over half an hour late checking in for the tours. After Dunn's River Falls, they were late again in checking back in. Earl and Jerome realized how unfair this was to us and Earl took us on the rest of the tour by ourselves. They were wonderful! We gave Yardie a glowing review on TripAdvisor.com because of how those two treated us! - Dale L


Our tour guide, Shaw, was amazing. He was so friendly and informative from the very beginning. I felt so lucky to have chosen this tour group when I saw what groups other cruisers went with. He went above and beyond to make sure our trip to Jamaica was great. We really enjoyed the Dunn's River Falls. All of the people there were wonderful and we had so much fun! - Melissa W


Yardie Tours was a delight from the first e-mail to our return to the cruise ship. You were all so polite and friendly. We customized our day with a trip to Scotchies, and Shaw was attentive throughout. You even came back to get us at the dock because we were a bit late getting started! We will recommend you to everyone! - The Swick Family


I enjoyed the drive up the mountain towards the zipline. The view was fantastic! It was a great tour. No complaints. I salute you guys. Your warm welcome and willingness to accommodate me and my husband has made us fall in love with the people of Jamaica. We will be back again and we will definitely contact you. Is it possible to rent our driver for the whole day? - Dali W


Great value. Our guide Shaw was very personable and informative. We enjoyed the falls and Reggae Beach. Everyone we dealt with was very friendly. We would definitely use your company again and will recommend to others as well. - Tari L


This was a wonderful tour. Our guide met all of our expectations. At all times, he just wanted to please us. He continually asked, if there was anything else we would like to see or do. He was polite, very knowledgeable and the van was perfect, comfortable and clean. We always felt safe. He knew his way around. I can't think of one thing to improve our trip. It was great! We left photos in the van after we departed to go back to our ship. We never thought we'd see them again, but when we got home we had an email from Yardie tours. They told us they found our photos and would be mailing them to our home. That is just one example of how they go out of their way to make their customers feel appreciated. - Arlene


My wife and I did the waterfalls and river tubing. we had a fantastic time our driver/guide was very Knowledgeable about the local area and was very friendly. nothing was too much trouble for him and he made the day very memorable. I would recommend this company to anybody and if we go back we will definitely be going on more tours with them. February 2010. Book with Yardie tours for a day to remember at reasonable prices and value for money. - Patrick B


Please pass on again our heartfelt thanks to Chris for our “best” day in Jamaica – and they were all Irie. Your personalized service amazed us and we learned things about your island that we never would have learned if it wasn’t for Chris. While everyone on your island is very friendly and polite – Chris stood out as being an exceptional spokesperson for your island. Thanks again – as I found you on trip advisor and went with your tours instead of Moby Dick as I had planned I will be adding our praise to trip advisor and we talked about your wonderful service and of Chris our last days at Breezes. PS we returned to Canada yesterday and now today it hit -30 C ( -40 with the wind chill) can’t wait to return to your beautiful island – my memories will keep us warm - JoAnn D


This being my first cruise, I enjoyed touring a part of the island worry free. Shaw did everything to make my trip comfortable and enjoyable. Shaw is the best! He did what he said and was always on time. We enjoyed him. Keep up the good work. I will definitely use Yardie Tours services again. - Kesha S


The visit and experience to Dunn's River Falls was great. We are very happy with the service. Everything was awesome!!! The tour guide in Spanish was very friendly and knowledgeable and the service of her and the driver was exceptional. - Juan


The friendliness and safety we felt being with Shaw as he toured us around and also as Chris took us to and from the airport. Both men were professional and pleasant. We saw and did things that others on vacation did not have the same privileges as we did..we felt very special. Excellent rates. I can't of anything that would have made our tour better.

We have already started to tell others about how great you guys were. Our plans are to come to Jamaica again and will certainly have Yardie to tour us around. Yardie made our vacation special. Thank You - Margaret and Lauren W


We were treated like royalty. Shaw, our driver, took us to Dunn's river Falls, which was brilliant. He came back for us on the designated time. Then took us to Reggae beach, which blew us away with its beauty, it was breath taking, we met some locals who couldn't do enough for us. Shaw came back on time, he was so nice, and told us about the parishes we went through. Couldn't thank him and all of you enough for an amazing time and place. God Bless you all. Perfect day. Would use Yardie again and recommend you to our friends. - Mike D


Yardie Tours and their staff were so professional and friendly from our initial enquiry to the end of the tour. it was excellent We were met by Earl at the port who then introduced us to Christopher who was looking after us for the day. Christopher was brilliant, he made every effort to ensure we had a great experience. He chatted about Jamaica, stopped off to let us sample local fruit and sugar cane. He made sure we were looked after at the horse riding and Dunn's River, took us to get a great view of the ship and Ocho Rios and took photos of us. He stopped to get us a cold beer and went to the trouble of finding a shop that did rum cake (negotiating a good price)and making sure we got back to our ship on time! Earl came to check that we had had a great time before we left which, was also a nice touch. We cannot recommend Yardie Tours highly enough and will most definitely be using them next time we are in Jamaica. Thank You for a brilliant day. - Nikki S and Graham B


Dear Kevin and Earl and Chris,
We just returned from our Cruise and wanted to take a moment to thank Yardie Tours for an amazing day. Chris....you did a fantastic job and gave our family a "terrific day in Jamaica that we will never forget". Thank you again for your warm hospitality and sharing your love for your country with us. Jamaica is a most beautiful island and I wish for you and your country a blessed life full of good tidings and prosperity in the future. I would highly recommend you to other travelers and will post something on trip advisor soon! - Rita and Mark R


We loved climbing the Dunns River Falls and the river tubing. There was a person who met us at the port and we had a personal driver who drove us to where we needed to go. He took care of all the nitty gritty and we didn't have to do anything but enjoy the tour. - Alice W


I enjoyed the personal service and attention that was given to us. We received door to door service, were able to make stops to pick up souvenirs and get some real Jamaican jerk chicken. We were given a bonus tour along the way and were shown some historical landmarks, as well as our driver Chris sharing his knowledge with us about Jamaica. This was my 3rd trip to Jamaica and I am glad I decided to use your services as opposed to the tour company recommended by the resort. The service was excellent, we weren't just stuck on a bus with a lot of other tourist, it was personal and that made all the difference. Not to mention your prices are a lot cheaper. I will definitely use your services on my 4th trip. - - Kim R


I have to admit, I was very hesitant and worried about my cousin planning and going on an excursion alone through a private tour group....separate from our cruise line excursion tour. You just never really know nowadays which businesses are legitimate or not, especially when you're coming from a different country.

Fortunately, those worries were put to rest once we arrived in Jamaica and were greeted by Earl and the Yardie tour guide Chris. Right away we felt like we were going to be well taken care of. Our tour guide was always making sure we stayed on schedule and was constantly collaborating with his fellow coworkers to make sure that we went where we needed to go and got what we wanted. This was no easy task considering our limited time frame!

I wasn't even scheduled to tour with Yardie tours, yet they were totally fine with squeezing me, plus two other people, into their schedule and picking us up after our scheduled morning tour with our cruise line....all within LITERALLY last minute notice! We were well taken care of and were always made to feel that our best interests were of upmost importance! Even after our excursion, with only about 20 minutes left to make it back to the port, our guide took us to stores to allow us a chance to find last minute souvenirs!

We experienced great service to the very end of our tour! and made it back to our ship on time! Thank you Yardee tours! I would definitely recommend you to a friend! - Debbie P


Great Tours, exceptional hospitality from the tour guide....worth every penny spent - George D


Everything went so great from the time Earl met us at the dock until the time Christopher dropped us off. You have outdone yourselves! This tour was THE BEST part of our cruise and vacation can't thank you enough.

Our guide Christopher! He was awesome. He went above and beyond our expectations. He is a true asset to your company,

Honestly everything was great. I can't think of anything that could have been better. - Cindy T


We enjoyed Cranbook The Grotto, and we were really pleased with the extras - Christopher Columbus site, market in downtown Ocho Rios, etc...It was a perfect tour. - Samuel C


Easy finding "Earl". Driver Chris was wonderful and informative. Zipline/Atv was fun - one of the best excursions we have ever taken - the guys there were awesome. - Mike W


Hi this is Preston [****]. I recently married my fiance Erin in Jamaica. We booked your tours for most of a week. I just wanted to let you guys know what a great time we had. We appreciate Christopher giving us a first class tour through your beautiful country. Erin and I fell in love with Jamaica. The people are so kind, the food was spectacular, and the scenery was breath taking. Christopher was able to answer every one of my questions from local plants/trees, Jamaican history, the seven National heroes, to Rastafari and Marcus Garvey. What a wealth of knowledge that man possesses. He even recorded our wedding ceremony for us. ( Did a wonderful job of that too) I can safely say we would not have had as wonderful of a vacation without Chris as our guide.

I laugh as I think about all of the people who stayed at Sandals and never left the resort. There is soooo much more to Jamaica than Sandals Ocho Rios. So much in fact, we feel as though we only had a small glimpse of what Jamaica has to offer. Hopefully, in the near future we can return to Jamaica again. We will definitely use Yardie Tours again. We will also recommend Yardie to anyone we know going to Jamaica. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts. One love. - Preston and Erin


Liked how professional yet friendly Christopher was at all times and his vast knowledge about Jamaica and the ability to know that we could stop anywhere if we decided to at a moments notice rather than being stuck on a tour bus. Everything exceeded our expectations.

We originally booked 3 tours with Yardie tours, and after such an amazing positive experience we booked another full day. Words cannot express how impressed we were with Christopher and Yardie Tours. Always on time, professional, and just so fun to be with! Booking through Yardie Tours is one worry travelling to a new place that you will not have to worry about.

Not to mention having your own tour guide specifically there for you is so much better than travelling with a big tour bus group. It was so nice to say that we wanted to try sugar cane, and the next thing we knew Christopher was pulling over to a vendor and helping us negotiate a fair price! Your prices are more than fair and worth every penny! Thank you so much for making our vacation a holiday that we will never forget. - Amanda W


Christopher did an excellent job. It was a good tour in all respects. - Stan Sesser

The following is an excerpt from my Wall Street Journal Column.

"But most of the fun was still on shore. After the misfire in Haiti, the second day's excursion, in Jamaica, was a bonanza. Before setting sail, I had done some Internet research and hired a car and driver through tour agency Yardie Tours. When I got off the ship at Ocho Rios, a representative of the agency was waiting for me on the dock. The driver, a gregarious Jamaican named Christopher, embodied the tour agency's slogan: "In Jamaica we would say, 'No problem mon.' " - Stan Sesser


Hi Kevin and Christopher,
I want to thank you for giving my clients, and personal friends, Amanda and Jerry such a fabulous time! They said you custom fit the tour for them, and had very reasonable rates as well. Good job guys!

I, myself, first visited the island in November 2006 to get married there. We had a tragic accident with our bridesmaid in the St. Anne's area Ocho Rios at a resort, and sadly didn't get married and had to cut our 2 week trip into only 5 days, but they were the 5 most memorable days of our lives. I feel that there is still so much to see, and now as a travel agent I live through my clients experiences, and have to visit again soon.

When my clients come back to Canada happy, with a story or two, it makes me feel that I have done the best job to ensure they had a fantastic trip. Which is what I hear you did for my most recent Jamaican travelers, so thank you.

I will be visiting again shortly, and will contact you to arrange a tour to experience your service and tour ideals and standards, as well. I am very happy that they brought your website to my attention, as I can feel confident in recommending you to future clients if this service is your normal way of business.

So, one last time, thank you for your fabulous job, Christopher, Kevin and crew. You exceeded my clients expectations with excellent communication, and overall brilliant service. Thank you and have a great day!

The whole tour was awesome, the service was perfect, we felt like VIP (with private tour guide). The zipline tour was great, unexpectedly awesome. And the Dunn river falls was a perfect closing for the day. We had a perfect tour with perfect service. Thank you Kevin for very fast response each time I email when I have questions. Thank you Andrew who was really great providing information along the tour and who made arrangement for us when our plan fell thru. We couldn't get to Kingston coz the Knutsford bus was fully booked, Andrew set up somebody to pick us up and take us back (Kingston-Ocho Rios) with affordable price. We had so much fun doing everything that we picked (zipline, atv, and dunn river falls). We can't wait to come back and try other things in your tour. Thank you - Sara S.


You guys are terrific and Earl was very special everyone loved him. he made us feel very comfortable and special. Thanks. I'll be referring others to you and thanks for the Rum. we have enjoyed it! - C. Di Pietro


[i liked] Being back in Jamaica after 20 years and meeting friendly local people. Great organization flexibility and friendliness " - Anthony Hopkins


I would like to thank you for an outstanding tour you gave us through Earl. He was a very knowledgeable and very friendly guide. We all enjoyed our Tours especially the Dunn's River Falls! There were only 4 of us in our group who dared reach the top.

I definitely will recommend your services to my passengers! - Esther


My husband and I both enjoyed all aspects of our tour. Dunn river was really a wonderful experience. The river rafting was really fun and Sean did a wonderful job of taking care of 6 inexperienced river rafters. Our driver was very knowledgeable and took his time to explain all aspects of the tour. The side trip to Steer Town was very informative. Thanks for the fun and we will certainly recommend other cruisers to use your service. - Linda V


The tour guides were excellent. Earl and Radcliffe were very accommodating and extremely friendly. I loved climbing the water fall and tubing. I also loved that Radcliffe and Earl took us to a good jerk chicken place in Jamaica as we asked even though it was not part of our original plan. The tour was absolutely perfect. Nothing could have been better! It was a great tour! Excellent job :-) - Jaime A


I have to say our short stay in Jamaica was the highlight of my trip. Unfortunately coming off a cruise ship to Ocho Rios did not leave us much time but Yardie Tours made our experience something amazing and unforgettable. Being from New York, my 3 friends and I were amazed at the way our tour guide took care of ANYTHING we wanted to do and kept our bags secure on the bus. I would definitely recommend Yardie Tours to anyone and I will be back in Jamaica soon. Thanks again for the most amazing time! - Rob R.


The escort Radcliff was WONDERFUL! He was very kind a patient. As this was my sisters 1st visit, she had lots of questions and he very resourceful. I am a travel agent and I certainly will be recommending ALL of my clients to Yardie Tours while visiting Jamaica. Best Wishes and keep up the good work." - Karen Shannon


Radcliff was congenial, and very knowledgeable and expressed himself very well, We enjoyed his company as well as him being the tour guide. - - Barbara and James


The driver was so accommodating. He helped us plan the day out beautifully. He was very trust-worthy with our belongings and gave us some great advice. Your tour that you advertised with tubing and Dunn's River made a great family day for us. It's hard to improve perfection. I will be recommending to our customers traveling to Jamaica to use you. - Sarah B.


Kevin, We had a Fabulous time with your company. Our personal guide could not have been better. I would highly recommend your company to others seeking tours in your area. Tourists are warned vehemently about crime in Jamaica. Our guide and driver was extremely diligent about advising us and keeping us safe. We never felt uncomfortable and had loads of fun. It takes a good company to entertain ten very different women. You did it well! - Tonya A.


We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Jamaica. I don't think that you could have done anymore. From our initial email contact, through to being met off the cruise ship and a really good driver, the service was superb. Many thanks. - Harry C


The service was great. I would recommend Yardie Tours to anyone visiting Jamaica. You delivered everything you promised and then some. To be honest, we had heard a lot of scary things about the crime in Jamaica, but we felt very safe and had a great time. Dunn's River Falls was the highlight of our cruise. - Kim


The whole tour. We had a great time. We had heard a lot about Jamaica and were a little scared coming. Our tour guide (Radcliff) never left us and made us feel very safe. We were so happy that we booked through Yardie. Earl and Radcliff are the best. They really made our trip more enjoyable. - Michelle


We had a wonderful day on our tours with Andrew on 3-17-08. He was very accommodating and friendly during our whole day and multiple excursions. Also, Uton, our guide on our White River tubing trip was delightful. We will DEFINATELY recommend your company to any other lucky friends vacationing in Jamaica! Andrew, our driver was most friendly, prompt, informative and helpful on our tours at Dunn's River Falls and tubing down the White River. Your company emailed us back very promptly when we were inquiring about possible trips. - Allen & Valorie G


We had a great time and enjoyed seeing the real beauty of Jamaica. Our Guide was Radcliff. We went to Duns River Falls and Shaw Park. Both great places to visit. He was pleasant and informative, on time, helped us order a traditional Jamaica jerk meal for lunch. He then took us to a shopping mall and waited for us as he said it was to far to walk back to the pier. He also and did a great job driving. I am glad we found your wed site and would highly recommend your company to anyone considering a visit to Jamaica. - Timothy M


I will recommend Yardie Tours to my friends and families. Our tour guide, Andrew, was friendly and he knows a lot of fun places to visit in Jamaica. - Dennis M


Our guide was great. When it was apparent that one van wasn't enough he got another right away. He was easy to contact on the dock. altogether satisfactory. Our guide/driver was a real treat. - Robert A


We loved the people of Jamaica and your country. We will definitely recommend Jamaica as the destination to people. Wish we could have spent a longer amount of time on the rafts touring around in the water. - Cindy B


Just a word of thanks for "sticking with us". We enjoyed a wonderful few hours in Ocho Rios escorted by Radcliff. Much appreciated!!. - Eric and Barb


The road to Nine Mile was spectacular and our driver Chris was wonderful. He was knowledgeable about the countryside and the people and he was considerate to apprise us of the "culture" at Nine Mile so we were well prepared when we arrived. He was also an expert driver! Utmost Respect! We had a great experience at Nine Mile and he made us feel relaxed and comfortable. Riding in a car with just my son and me made the trip feel like an afternoon out with a friend. I am passing Yardie Tours on to my friends who are visiting in April. Thanks Again. - Christopher G


Ratcliff, our tour guide was amazing. we had two different days where the first day we went zip lining, he was there with us taking funny video's of the cussing. hahaha. and helping us take pictures. On the second day, he took us to Dunn's River falls, where we spent a very fun time together where he actually gave us some interesting information about the history of the falls. I would recommend you all the time. Thank you again. - Carla & Bruno
