Yardie Tours believes in the importance of customer satisfaction, which is why we make it a priority to offer safe, convenient and fun filled tours. Here are some testimonials from our customers.


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. - Linda R


We enjoyed how informative our driver Christopher was!! this was our second trip this year to Jamaica and second time touring with Yardie Tours. we had the best time on our tour Christopher was very informative, pleasant and patient. he made sure we got to do everything we wanted to do and see it was great!!thank you so much!! i will highly recommend your company to everyone we know and especially anyone we know that's going to Jamaica. Everything was great couldn't have been better!! - Jeff A


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! - Ty


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! - Harold B


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


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 here

"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 Christopher 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.


 

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.
