Peat Taylor tours - in our case led by son 'repeat' - was a great day away from the markets and hassles of trying to extract your money. It was worth climbing Dunns Falls - hadn't expected to enjoy as much as we did (expect to tip Falls guide separately). Tyre drifting down the river was lame - least enjoyable... More

We were met at our resort by Peat's son O'Neal, and his little brother Answert (sp),They were friendly, polite, and full of information. We went to Dunn's Falls, rafting, lunch and shopping. They also took us to the best view in Ocho Rios. The price was great, but the personal attention was priceless. I felt sorry for all the people... More

PJ was our guide and he was amazing. He is very knowledgeable. personable and patient. Peat himself also works full time, and ensures 100% customer satisfaction. Their vehicles are in good condition, and I felt safe the entire time. Roger and Justine Honeymooners

Peat Taylor Jr met us at our cruise terminal in Montego Bay for a trip to Dunn's River, lunch and Cool Blue Hole - which was beautiful and a real treat to see rural Jamaica away from the crowds. I cannot say enough great things about Peat Taylor Tours. They are flexible, fairly priced, professional, clean/comfortable transportation, a wealth of... More

Our first stop was Dunn's River Falls, we were the second group to arrive, don't let people scare you about all... More

We booked with Peat Taylor Tours after reading seveal positive reviews. We were met by Peat Taylor Jr at the cruise ship exit. Peat made us feel very safe as I was a little reluctant to tour around town. Peat gave us a lot of information along with their native songs. He even arranged a early ride back to the... More

We, a group of 22, visited the Riu Ocho Rios from April 17 until May 1. Before leaving I wanted to set up airport transfers, and a day "out" to see some highlights of the Ocho Rios area. I did a little research, and came across the highly recommended 'Peat Taylor Tours' on Tripadvisor. All I can say is "WOW"!!... More

Peat was easy to contact via email and responded to our inquiry quickly and with clear and specific instructions on how to meet him at the cruise terminal in Ocho Rios. (It can be a bit chaotic there.) Peat was... More

After contacting several tour operators in Ocho Rios, we decided on Peat Taylor. We spent the day with his son Peat Jr. and his driver Clifton. We started with a drive to an overlook of the pier area. Gorgeous views! We then drove through Fern Gulley where we stopped at a local vendor. We were able to look at the... More
