“Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Me and my fiance used Palmer in May 2013 for a transfer from Montego Bay Airport to the Iberostar resort. We immediately got to know the character of Palmer in the way that he dealt with our situation. For some reason there was a mix-up with the time he thought our plane was landing (that could have been our mistake). As a result of that, he was at the airport from early in the day while our plane was scheduled to land at approx 8:30pm. When Palmer didn't see us he waited. He ended up waiting the whole day to ensure we had transportation. I'm sure in his head he was wondering if we were ever going to show or perhaps he thought we used someone else. Thankfully, Palmer was a true professional by waiting it out to ensure we had transportation. When we got into his air-conditioned bus he promptly offered us a Red Stripe beer and everything was irie!

We also used Palmer for a tour to Dunns River Falls and Mystic Mountain. It was nice having our own private tour because Palmer was very informative and we had control over where we stopped and how much time we spent on each activity. I found the total price of the tour (per person) slightly more expensive that what the hotel was offering for a group tour, however, the flexibility we had with a private vehicle made up for it. For example, we told Palmer we were looking for authentic, spicy, Jerk chicken and he found the right spot for us. Since it wasn't a typical tourist restaurant the prices were quite reasonable.

Overall, I recommend choosing Palmer. When you speak to him you quickly see that he is a hard working man and he loves his job. If you end up using him please come back and review him so he can be rewarded for his good work.

Oh yeah, how could I forget about the lovely mangoes Palmer gave us. I told him I love mangoes and he gave me one when he dropped us off at the resort. He also brought us a few more when he picked us up for our trip to Dunns River/ Mystic Mountain. It doesn't get any better than that!

“Palmer was a hit with the TEENS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I read all the reviews in detail before booking Palmer for our recent visit. They do not fib! Top Notch communication from the get-go! We were a group of 8, two families of 4, celebrating high school graduations and arrived this past week via Carnival Magic. We did not want to book excursion and wanted just a few hours on the island. Palmer was waiting for us and we were loaded in the bus and on our way very promptly. We toured the city and residential areas, learned about the island, saw tons of fruits growing and took great photos. Palmer took us to his friends shop that had great prices and no harassments. We then walked to the beach and spent about an hour there and then on to Margaritaville to party on! The kids had a great time and that made a great time for us parents. If you are wanting to have a personal driver to the day, or just a half a day lik eus, Palmer is the man!

“Reliable Service from Palmer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Palmer was my contact for the airport drop-offs, pick-ups, transport to the wedding venue and a day tour around Montego Bay. He was punctual, reliable and I will definitely contact him on my future trips to Montego Bay. Very reasonably priced compared to other companies and he gave us personalized attention. Great job Palmer in coordinating everything and getting the wedding group to the airport for their respective flights. Thanks!!!!

“Wonderful Jamaica through Palmer's View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We had a big group of people (14) ranging from 4 to 65 years old. Due to some miscommunication, we didn’t get off the ship to meet Palmer until after 11am. He was there waiting for us since 9am. He thought we somehow couldn’t make it but he still waited for us. When we met him, he was the only driver at the port. It was an awesome experience seeing Jamaica through Palmer’s view/drive. He drove us from the most expensive town/area to the slum. Without him, we wouldn’t have seen that wide spectrum of the Island in only a few hours. He is very knowledgeable about the area and a funny person that my 4 year old son kept on talking about him even when we get back to the states. Everyone in our family enjoyed his company and pleased with his service. Thank you, Palmer, for making Jamaica a pleasant destination for our family's vacation. The next time we visit Jamaica, we definitely contact Palmer again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

We got off the ship 2 hours late; Palmer was patiently waiting for us under the sun with smile in his face. Kids are so happy seeing you again.
His services, knowledge made our trips to Jamaica absolutely wonderful!
Plus, his cold beers, fruit rum, water .. Jerk chicken made all 14 of us so enjoyable.

Palmer, we will see you again in the future.
