If you want to experience the charm and beauty of Jamaica through the eyes of a proud local, arrange a tour with Alrick Allen - owner of Your Jamaican Tour Guide. He is a very charming young man who was born and raised on the island. He will show you a fun, safe time! He loves his country and is very excited to share his wealth of knowledge with his guests. He is on time, professional, and most of all, a LOT of fun! You will really enjoy a comfortable ride in his impecabbly kept vehicle - with a cooler full of Red Stripe and cold water in the back. He will custom tailor each tour based on the particular whims and interests of his guests. MUCH better than being herded around on the tight time schedule of a big tour bus (and comparably priced to tours you book through your resort or cruiseship). As Alrick says "You call the shots and I fire the gun". That is just one of many of Alrick's catchy sayings - most of which he learned from his Mom and Grandmom. Both very wise women by the sounds of it!
We did three tours - the No Problem tour to Negril, which was lovely. Seven Mile Beach is truly breath-taking and Rick's Cafe is so much fun. The Tasting Tour is amazing - just make sure that you fast before-hand because you will need to bring your appetite! We also did a tour to Dunn's River Falls (very fun - bring your swimsuit, water shoes and a change of dry clothes because you will get WET, WET, WET) and Mystic Mountain. I highly recommend the Tranopy Tour at Mystic, which includes the Jamaican bobsled run and a zipline. Bring your swimsuit as there is also a lovely pool and waterslide. Don't miss the viewing station at the top of the restaurant. Enjoy a beer and/or a meal in the bar/restaurant - the view with the breeze in your hair is amazing. Have a quiet sit in the hummingbird sanctuary. The birds will hover right over your head as they sip from the feeders.
No matter where you go, or what you do, I'm sure that you won't go wrong booking a tour with Alrick. As a business owner myself, I appreciate a person like Alrick, who takes such obvious pride in his work and in providing his guests with a top-notch experience in every way. He exemplifies the laid-back, friendly vibe for which Jamaica is so well known. You will take the warmth of his smile, the memories of his stories and his love for his country home with you.
