We did the Dunn river falls, white river tubing and irrey blue hole tour. Peat and his tour guides where very good. They provided lots of info on the area, helpful hints on shopping, and were genuinely concerned that we had a good time. My whole family enjoyed this tour very much.

We had a wonderful time at Dunn's River falls but the horseback ride was not what we expected. My wife and I were the only two taking the horseback ride and we were taken to the outskirts of town and dropped on side of the road and introduced to two men from a local village and told they would be...

We visited Dunn's River Falls and went river tubing with Peat's son Repeat. We were a little nervous having heard a lot of negative reports about Ocho Rios. No need to worry Repeat was there on time to meet us at the cruise terminal. We only had to mention Peat Taylor to one of the port officials and we were... More

After reading Peats reviews on tripadvisor, we felt comfortable booking with him. We are glad we did. We did 2 days of tours with Peat, and both days, Peat was on time and had great advice and an awesome attitude. Peat even took us to a local jerk chicken place for lunch. Peat made us feel very comfortable in Jamaica,... More

Just came back from Carnival Cruise and used Peat Taylor for the first time. Had a great time there were 7 of us in the group including three children. Peat Jr. picked us up on time and we did the Dunns River falls and Blue Hole tour. By going with Peat we were at Dunns Falls early and avoided the... More

O'neal Taylor squired us around Jamaica on our recent Thanksgiving cruise aboard Voyager. As it was our first time to Jamaica, we were leary about going ashore due to comments about pushy vendors and people trying to sell drugs, etc. But with Peat Taylor tours you have absolutely nothing to worry about. O'neal not only took good care of us,... More

the trip was ok. we went to dunn river fall and tubing. what peat taylor offers us is just like the taxi between port-river fall-tubing-port and some chats on the way. but it saves our time to bargain with local taxi drivers. the fall is just a park, you climb it with other tourists. tubing is operated by some private...

We had planned on doing Dunn River Falls, White River Rafting, Cool Blue Hole and Mohagany Beach. We were really excited...until the ship changed... More
