Testimonials - Earl (andrew)
 

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.


Both of the attractions (River Tubing, Dunn's River Falls) were great, but the local things like the Banyan tree, overlook of downtown Ocho Rios and the ocean, and getting to stop for meat patties before we even had lunch made it truly special.

We honestly had a great time. Earl was WONDERFUL, and thanks to Kevin for all of his help in making our requests up to taking the tour come through. We appreciated you so much! - Sally R


We had Earl taking us around and we really loved his taking us to Scotchies for lunch. He stayed with us and told us about local food, fruit (ackee) and got some for us to try.

We are going to be back in October and we would love for Earl to take us to the falls, and maybe do something else. We are SO HAPPY to have found your company and will continue to tour with you in the future. We are looking forward to seeing Earl again. - James and Robin C


Earl was wonderful and did a excellent job making sure we were comfortable and did and excellent job of showing us all the highlights of the island. Earl went overboard to accommodate our group and made Ocho Rios the highlight port of our trip. If all of your tour guides are like Earl you will never receive a complaint. If I come back to the island I will use Yardie tour again. - Sabrina A


I can’t tell you how much fun our group had on our “tour, rafting, shopping trip” with Earl this week. From the moment he picked us up, letting us know that every thing in Jamaica was “no problem”, we were laughing which didn’t stop until he dropped us off again. Every one of the 16 persons in the group that went on this excursion had the best day of our trip.

The rafting was wonderful, and the men that did all the work (and we had a few “heavy weights” with us so it was definitely work), were very entertaining and informative. My husband and I had “Living Bob Marley” aka Dennis as our rafter and he sang to us and took his hat off to reveal a ton of dreads and pulling that beard out of his shirt, displayed a beard that went past his knees! We really felt we experienced some true “Jamaican” culture. As our gang were all “rowdy” adults, I got the feeling that the crew at the river would be appropriate for whatever type group we would bring (in other words, if we had children with us, it would have been a bit different of a rafting trip). The beach at the end of the White River is absolutely beautiful and definitely a first for so many of the group.

From there Earl took us through Fern Gully and we really got to see more of your beautiful island and purchase some souvenirs of our day, in addition to more education on Jamaica. And then on to a drive through tour of the downtown Ocho Rios area.

All in all, I would highly recommend your company for touring and hope to be back soon to try some of your other available tours. Earl was absolutely the right “tour guide” for our group and we’d appreciate it if you told him a big THANK YOU from all of us. I also want to tell you how much I appreciated the special jerk seasonings that you gave to Earl for me - what a pleasant surprise and now I will think of that day many more times while eating my own jerk chicken or pork. We’ll be back, - Marie H


We enjoyed both the horseback riding and the Dunn's River Falls climb. The service Yardie Tours provided was exceptional. Earl, our driver was courteous and was a pleasure to be with. He was prompt and was all that we could have asked for in a driver. You guys really do a good job and take care of your customers. We were definitely pleased with the service that you provided and we will definitely use your company again if we return to Jamaica. - Jude D


Glistening Waters, Dunn's River Falls, horseback riding and tubing were all very good and no problems with any tours. The pick-up from the hotel and the tour was perfect and Earl our guide was very knowledgeable and courteous. We will use Earl again if we go to Jamaica and recommend him as well. Everything was perfect. Jamaica is a beautiful island and would like to go back again sometime and would like to go and see more sights as there is so much to see, that you can't see everything in one visit. The people are very friendly in Jamaica. - Joann K


Earl did a great job, he was super accommodating and he honored the Web price even though we booked at the pier. Earl was very helpful in fending off the many local vendors and making my entire group of 15 feel comfortable. I will recommend Yardie tours especially Earl to whom ever will listen. Thanks - Paul M


First off i had Earl and i loved him he was very nice and friendly. He made me feel like I've known him for years that's how comfortable he made me feel. The tours were very good also. The one atv tour i would have liked to ride them a little longer. But i really enjoyed all the tours we went on. When i come back which is hopefully soon i don't want no one else except Earl. Thank you all - Aisha D


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


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 can't thank him enough!!! We have been many places in our travels, but people like Earl put Jamaica on the map!  - Trina and Gary
Earl was a truly great guide. We told him we wanted to meet and visit real Jamaica and real Jamaicans. He taught us so much about Jamaica and the Jamaican people. I, personally fell in love with the entire island. Yardie Tours has proven to be a company that is trustworthy and with great integrity. I couldn't have had a better guide than Earl. He was charming and very knowledgeable. All in all a wonderful experience. - Carol F
Thank you to you as well. Your driver Earl was just fantastic. We have given our son and his girlfriend a cruise for Christmas and we are probably sailing the same itinerary again...If we do we will contact you immediately with our excursion request. - Oliver K
  Earl promptly arrived at the hotel. He was a great guide. His knowledge and passion for his job showed. We learned a great deal in the four hours that we spent with him. I am happy that we chose Yardie Tours and even more pleased that we had Earl as our driver. I will undoubtedly personally choose and refer anyone who is traveling to Ocho Rios for vacation to book a tour with your outfit. Thanks a bundle. - Patrick P
  All 17 of us filled one bus, it was like having our own private tour! Earl was great, plenty of drinks for everyone, willing to stop where and whenever. Everything was perfect- I booked for our whole family, and they all had a great time! Next time any of us are back, you'll be hearing from us again- MUCH better than over crowded, overprice cruise excursions! - C. Whipple
 

Loved everything Yah Mon Yah Mon. Your country is beautiful and you people are great. It reminds me of my country and my people in Cuba. And your drivers, WOAAAAA, Earl what a guy. He was wonderful and always with a happy face. It makes us want to go back and for sure we will call you again. We will tell all our friends about the business and drivers. When we went back on the ship we told all the people on the cruise about you. Yah Mon Yah Mon. God Bless you. - G. Estefan


 

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our trip to the falls. Everyone had a fantastic day and you made our wedding very special. Earl was very obliging and fun to be with. Thanks again you made our day very memorable and we will have 'No problem Mon' using you again in the future. - Mark and Gillian

I t was great seeing our picture with Earl having a nice rum drink at the bar on the About us page on your website we look forward to our return to Jamaica soon. Would love hear from you Earl drop us a email sometime. See you soon mon!! - Phil & Cheri


 

Our tour guide was earl and he was the best ever. We will highly recommend him to everyone we know. He was courteous, helpful, informative and most of all entertaining. Thank you so much for allowing us the privilege of his company. In case he doesn’t remember our names, we were the two he took to the jewelry store to have my ring remounted. Thanks for all your help. Hiring Earl was one of the best things you could have done for your company. - Woody and Candi


 

Earl and our driver Ray did a great job. Everything was as promised. We arrived on time and was taken to the falls before it got too crowded. I felt very safe and enjoyed the island very much. I felt bad that we locked everything in the van and did not have cash with us to tip the falls tour guides. That is something I will have to remember in the future. - Lisa A.
