Christopher was very
informative and made
the tour more interesting. But we loved Dunn's River falls
the best and unfortunately didn't have as much time to enjoy
it as we wanted. Christopher was fantastic and very accommodating.
He knew we were on a tight schedule and tried to keep us moving
along so that we could enjoy everything. He really went out of
his way to make our tour enjoyable for everyone.

Riding the zipline was the most fun I have had in a long time!
Definitely worth the money. Our driver, Christopher was terrific! Very
knowledgeable & such a great personality, he went out of his way to make our tour fabulous!
- Paul T
We had a fabulous day with Christopher today! He was on
time, courteous, a lot of fun and very professional! He made the day wonderful!
We saw things I am sure no other tour company would have shown us.
- Cheri L
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
Chris was a wonderful tour guide! We enjoyed having a
private tour to enjoy all that Jamaica had to offer. We received VIP
treatment the entire day. We visited the Falls, Reggae beach, had lunch and
red stripe at Chris' recommended Jerk chicken spot, followed by a quick trip
up fern gully, and a bird's eye view of Ocho Rios. We even squeezed in a quick
trip to a gift shop - all in 6 hours! The tour was a great value and more than
we expected. Thanks again! :)
- Derek and Caitlin
You, my friends, are blessed with a
spectacular, natural wonder in this world!!! A very close second thing we
enjoyed was the very close attention paid us by Chris. Chris was there for
everything we needed to make our tour special! Whether it be to take a
picture at one of our special moments, or get us a refreshing coconut drink,
or take us on a special side tour. I could go on, but suffice it to say, we
had an amazing couple days with Chris as our guide!! We all had such an
incredible adventure with Chris. The guys from Hooves were also incredible!!
My girlfriend was able to cross off an item from her bucket list, the
horseback ride on the beach and in the ocean!!
- Rick K & family
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
Christopher would do and go anywhere we wanted and was most
accommodating. We had a most memorable time with the children at the school in particular.
Totally fantastic time Thank you so much! We had a terrific time!! Christopher was the best
& will highly recommend Yardie Tours to everyone we speak to.
- Debbie G
Christopher, you did us an awesome job!! And we are still
drinking the blue Mountain coffee we got at the local grocery in Ocho Rios.
And the school in Claremont was a great experience meeting the teachers and the
students! Views fantastic and lunch best jerk ever! We had an awesome day!! thanks,
- Craig S
personalized attention from Chris, our driver who gave us a
very thorough tour of the city and its culture I will highly recommend your tour
company again. My cruisemates were very jealous of the personalized attention and
tour. It was very reasonably priced and Chris was fantastic! Thank you!
- Denise K
Christopher was an outstanding guide; he went out of his way to
make sure my girlfriend and I were able to see the real Jamaica. I would highly
recommend Yardie Tours to anyone, especially those visiting on a cruise. Our tour
was cheaper and more flexible than those offered by Carnival. I wish Carnival had
allowed us more time in port so that our tour could have lasted longer! I was not
sure what to expect at first, but anyone considering this should immediately book
the Bob Marley Nine Mile Tour and Dunn's River Falls tour. Easily my favorite part
of the cruise, and one of the best days of my life. Many thanks to Christopher,
the Duke of Earl, and Yardie Tours!
We enjoyed the tour from beginning to end. Christopher was very
pleasant and willing to take us wherever we wanted to go. No worry! Thank you so much
for a wonderful experience of Ocho Rios. We enjoyed the Falls along with the tour of
the countryside. I will recommend your company to all of my clients.
- D. Pernice
Christopher was an excellent tour guide. I enjoyed the personalized
tour versus the group. He was very knowledgable and accommodating to our needs. I will
definitely recommend your company, and in particular, Christopher, to others that I know
will be visiting your area. Be blessed and thanks again. Give Christopher our regards!
- Deloris C
We all had such a great time! Chris was very
courteous, a great
driver and informative. Kevin was so helpful with answering emails to be sure
we made the best choices for what we were looking to do. When we visit
again, we will absolutely call Yardie for the other tours we weren't able to do.
- Erica C
Our tour guide Chris was awesome. He explained the areas he took
us to in great detail. He was very personable and easy to talk to. We learned alot
about Jamaica as well as Bob Marley and other great people of Jamaica.
I enjoyed your tour company and Chris. I will definitely use Yardie
Tours again in the future.
- Monete D
We enjoyed the personalized service that Christopher provided
showed us. He was always friendly and made us feel safe while out with him.
We liked that we could go shopping after our excursions and not feel rushed
at all. Christopher also provided great detail about the culture in Jamaica
and even enhanced the trip by doing little things such as stopping on the
side of the road so we could taste sugar cane.
Nothing could have made this trip any better. Christopher was great.
Really enjoyed everything that Yardie tours had to offer and would
recommend then to anyone visiting Jamaica. When I return to Jamaica I will
surely be using Yardie again. Thanks Christopher for making our vacation wonderful.
- Meghan H
We just returned from our cruise. We cant begin to explain how
much we enjoyed Jamaica! Christopher English made the time spent there way better than
anticipated! From making us feel comfortable to educating us on your homeland. We will
never forget it and thank you again. We are passing on the name of your tour and you should
expect more buisness from us in the future!

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
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
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
The Bob Marley Mausoleum and the Dunn's River Falls were
awesome! These were the 2 excursions I picked. I really enjoyed the company of
my driver Christopher. He and Earl were very punctual very conscious of the
time needed to get to each excursion and back to my ship. Kevin, Christopher
and Earl were extremely professional and friendly. Your company and staff were
extremely professional and friendly. You guys were fantastic!
I would recommend Yardie Tours to everyone! Kevin responded so quickly to my
questions and provided so much detailed information that I felt at ease and
rest assured about my choice in Yardie Tours. Yardie Tours offers the best prices
and such wonderful quality.
The vehicle that escorted me to my excursions was clean and tidy and had AC,
even though I loved feeling the warm Jamaican breeze. Since I was pressed for
time, Earl and Christopher communicated so well together to ensure punctuality
to each excursion and back to my ship. In addition, although I was pressed for
time, I was kindly surprised that since I was a little disappointed that I didn't
get to do much shopping, Earl and Christopher already had a scouted a shop for
me to run to which had dresses I was intending to buy.
On top of that, they helped my family out too, my cousins and friend, by making
sure that we all stuck together to go back to the ship. You guys are the best.
I felt so extremely safe and I had the most awesome experience in Ocho Rios
thanks to all of you! I recommend you to everyone!
- Christine May
The personal touch! Friendly and efficient people,
especially Christopher and Kevin, and all the guys who caught us and made the
day awesome. Wouldn't have changed anything. [I am] Recommending you to all
our friends, family and on all the websites. Thank you!
- Mark and Vanessa
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. To view full article click
"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.' "
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
We enjoyed the interaction that we had with Christopher as well
as it surely felt like personalized service. Chris was great and was very
informative. The fact of being picked up and not having to stop at 10 resorts was
a great experience and we would highly recommend your company as well as
as the tour guide.
If we return to Jamaica we would not hesitate to rebook with your company, as we said
before we really enjoyed the personalized service and I myself (Wendy) appreciate that
Chris went out of his [way] or so I felt to get a drink for me. Please forward a
message from us to Christopher let him know that we really enjoyed him and I felt that
he was genuine and was always willing to answer our silly questions and we would like
to thank him for the drives to different parts of
Jamaica. Thank You for everything
- Ed and Wendy M
The zip line and Bob Marley
experience. For me being able to
experience a portion of what Bob experienced is a
lifetime experience. The tour was fine and I don't
think that anything could have made it better. We were taken around by Christopher
and this was a great experience. He went out of his way to ensure that we
enjoyed ourselves and that was touching. Even when
we had difficulties with our resort, he tried his
best to intervene and keep us happy. He saved our
anniversary vacation and I would like to thank him
for this!!! -
Leon and Janice
We had a
brilliant time, my mum had a great birthday,
everyone at the tours was so friendly and helpful. Chris English
was excellent, he went out of his way to make us feel welcome and to
give us the sights and knowledge of the area. Nothing seemed to be too much
for him, he made the tours better than any others we have ever been on.
He is a credit to the company and we will certainly be returning again and
recommending you to friends. Thanks again for making a wonderful holiday
so memorable. - Gemma H.
Our guide Christopher was
very informative and made our trip very memorable
and we could not have asked for better service. It
was perfect and just wished we had more time to
spend. It was great seeing and learning about the
farms and people. - Theresa Y.
