Ratcliff, our tour guide was amazing. we had to 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

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

I enjoyed the history of Jamaica and the culture of the people on the ride to 9 mile Bob Marley. I also enjoyed that it was private and we were able to ask questions as well as stop and take pictures. Earl took great care of us, No Problems, Excellent will recommend to others.

LOVE YARDIE TOURS! AND EARL is the Best!! - Sharon G

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

Our tour guide Chris. He was very accommodating and worked things into our tour that answered questions we had about like in Jamaica. We liked the ability to be flexible with the time on the tours and I liked the fact that Chris was always on time to pick us up.

We really enjoyed the tours and really appreciated the flexibility and he was really nice about taking pictures, etc. We appreciated the company getting back to us with questions we had. We certainly will recommend Yardie Tours to anyone going to the Ocho Rios area. Thanks again for making our trip very special. - Ted and Colleen B

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

I would like to thank Chris for the exceptional job he did in taking us on tours. He completely went out of his way to make sure that we were completely satisfied and made us feel very comfortable...[wish] my wife and I would of found out about Yardie Tours sooner! that way we could of planned out our honeymoon in advance! To Chris, Again thanks honestly our experience in Jamaica was great because of people like you. You go out of your way to make sure that the customer gets more than just a tour guide, we felt as if we were visiting a friend and he was going out of his way to show us his home! thanks Chris. - Robert & Sandy

Our trip to 9 Mile was our favorite. Captain Crazy did our tour which we enjoyed. It was perfect. We had fun with Christopher, he is a gentlemen who is proud of his country and where he comes from. He was always willing to pull the car over for pictures. - Christopher P

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

I just want to let you know that Chris was wonderful and like a family. he made our trip so special and very enjoyable ! If we visit again we will be asking for him and I will recommend him and Yardie tours to all my family and friends. Have a Happy new Year !!! - Asheet

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

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

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

My mom and I went to Jamaica on Sept 12-16 2009 and had a fantastic time! We did the Dunn River Falls and the Countryside Excursion on one day, and the White River Tubing and Shopping the next day! Earl was a great guide! We can't say enough good things about Earl! We will recommend this company to anyone we know that will be visiting Jamaica. Earl took the time to stop and show us different things and had an answer to every question! Thanks Earl for making our trip a very memorable one! We will be back soon! - Laurel & Nat

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

The personal service. The zipline was great and our driver Christopher was awesome. He really helped make it a great day in Jamaica. I will be highly recommending your tours to friends and will definitely be back.

Not sure it could have been any better for the short time we had there since we were on a cruise ship.

Thank you for making my sons birthday vacation and first time to Jamaica an awesome experience. - Anna 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

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

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! - Roxy Doctor

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

Where to begin! Earl, our driver/guide, was amazing! The zipline was a blast. Earl followed us around taking pictures for us...Earl rocks! The guides at the zipline were excellent; they made us feel safe and secure and were loads of fun. The river tubing was equally fantastic. Sean, our guide in the water, took amazing care of us, making sure we enjoyed the experience and we didn't get hurt on the rocks or anything jutting out along the bank. Earl was a fountain of information, telling us all about Jamaica. Yardie's tour prices are extremely reasonable and the service can't be beaten. We can't thank you enough!!

Everything was absolutely fantastic.I will be recommending Yardie to all my friends. We'll be back next year! We'll be in touch. - Kimberly S.

"One family favorite is the itinerary to Grand Cayman and Jamaica. Should you decide on this fun itinerary, explore Jamaica with Yardie Tours where your safe, courteous and helpful tour guides can show your family the beauty of the Dunn’s’ River Falls, Coyabe Gardens and culture of Ocho Rios." - Carmel Mooney

[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 - Queens NY

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.

Earl!!!!! Earl was fabulous! Everything that you promised Earl delivered and then more!!!! He was a wealth of knowledge. After talking with the other passengers on the ship I know that we had the most fun in Jamaica. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I would highly recommend anyone looking at going to Jamaica to use Yardie tours!! - Dawn H.

Yardie tours have a great tour guide, Andrew. Thank you so much for making our stay there wonderful and entertaining. We have recommended you to family and friends and will continue to do so every chance we get. Thanks again.   Rosa & Cruz - Ohio

Bob Marley, Dunn’s River tour was the greatest. Thank you Andrew for everything the price was unbeatable. Yardie Tours will be recommended by us all the time.   Mike and the group - Michigan 

Earl was a fantastic tour guy, he made us feel comfortable in a foreign land. He explained each tour visit and it's significance, we'll see you soon great job!  -   Randy and Anna

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 couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. Earl was the best! He was always on time, he listened to us and he provided the best hospitality!!! We will return to Jamaica again. 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
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.' " 

  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

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.

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.


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.
