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

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

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

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

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

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

The falls were great and Earl as our guide was wonderful. Earl was so good at giving us information, we couldn't have had a better guide.
Would recommend Earl and this company to anyone that wants to do a tour in Jamaica. - Victoria E

There was nothing more that could have been done to make the tours better. Earl and Chris were fantastic.

When I return to Jamaica, I will definitely call Yardie Tours again for all my tours and will recommend Yardie Tours to my friends and family who plan on visiting Jamaica. I have more to say which you can read on Trip Advisor. I posted a review there that is still being reviewed by them but should be officially posted soon. - Chris V

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

Excellent tour. Andrew was an excellent driver and guide. Our family felt very comfortable with him and had a blast visiting Jamaica! We were very pleased with his service and enjoyed his comments regarding the island. - Sheli G

I enjoyed the dolphin cove, horseback and the zipline- Earl made everything easy, he is the best

Earl was great, he really took care of us and shared alot of information about the area. I would book again with Yardie request Earl again - Tara

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 tour guide/driver, Earl, was the most informative, fun and patient guide that we experienced in all of our ports of call.We just wished we could have had a longer stay in Ochos Rios.

Yardie Tours was easy to schedule and everything was just as stated on the internet. We will definitely use Yardie Tours again - the shopping and Dunns River Falls was fantastic.

- Emma C

It was a personalized tour with just our family and it gave us the freedom to do what we wanted.... Earl was the best! and we love Jamaica and hope to be back... Please thank Earl again for showing us your island..I hope to see you again .... - Carla C

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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

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.

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

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

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 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

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 - C.Whipple

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
