Our first visit to Jamaica, and we can safely say not our last!! After our Goods friend finally persuaded us to visit Jamaica. So you may ask what does this have to do with Glen Garwood of Jamaica Xplored - Private Tours. Well our goods friends recommended that we use Glen Garwood as our Private transfers on our arrival into... More

We had a FABULOUS day with Jamaica Explored tour guide, Glen! He arranged our day to show us the best of Jamaica, taking in our interests and needs for relaxing fun. His personable, calm, knowledgeable, professional, flexible and upbeat nature helped to meet all of our expectations for a day out and about in Jamaica. During our day with Glen... More

My first trip to Jamaica was the best trip I have ever been on thanks to Glen who was recommended to us through a friend. Glen is so knowledgeable and a Blast to have around. He knows all the in and outs of his country and is very willing to share this with his new friends. We were lucky enough... More

Third time we used Glen and as always he came to our hotel on time with a big smile and hug. We used Glen this time for Martha Brae rafting and lunch at Scotchies with friends as a half day trip. Glen explained so much about Jamaica we learnt a lot of History and the proud Jamaicans. After our rafting... More

I didn't know it but I looked for a private tour guide and found a friend. What a day. Glen was spot on time, came with a big smile and hug and the day started. My Wife and I spoke with Glen on and about everything from Jamaica's colonial Spanish and British roots, through slavery, Rastafari, Haile Selassi, marcus garvey,... More

Found Glen on Trip advisor and can see why he has 100% satisfaction. Had an awesome day touring Jamaica. I was real nervous about going to Jamaica after everyone warned me. We almost didn't get off the ship and I know many people who were afraid to and didn't. We were not hassled by 1 person the entire day. The... More

We contacted Glen by e-mail to ask a few questions. We had my in-laws with us and they don't get around so fast and well anymore. Glenn made arrangements to call us one afternoon where we discussed options and decided upon the best tour. As instructed, we walked to the end of the dock and found the dispatcher and a... More

All the great things you have read about Glen are true. He is a professional and informative guide, who loves to share his country with others. My husband and I went on the Nine Miles tour over the Christmas Holidays, and our only regret is that we couldn't experience some of Glen's other tour offerings.

My BF and I were in port for one day and Glen maximized our time there! We had told him in an email that we wanted to climb Dunn's River Falls, Blue Hole (Princess didn't offer excursions to this location), and lunch where we can have "authentic Jamaican Food." Glen delivered on all counts. He was prompt and picked us... More

This is my first review I write ever directed to one specific person, for many reasons. Glen thanks for a perfect service, you did a great job, next time we will visit Jamaica you are our man! Nuff Respec! Already during the booking procedure by mail from Europe you were very helpful. When we finally came to Jamaica you did... More
