“Simply the Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We went with KnowJamaica because of their great reviews on tripadvisor and cruise critic and we had a wonderful day! There were 8 of us ranging in age from 13-73. Javia was our guide and he is very friendly and knowledgeable about his beautiful country. He drove us to some beautiful outlooks where we took some great pictures. He then took us to a waterfall "Little Dunns River Falls" which we loved. We were the only ones there. We then went to see Carl the Spice Man, we learned so much from him and really enjoyed our stop there. Then we had a wonderful lunch at Scotchies, great jerk chicken and pork. Loved it! He even made a couple stops at a local gas station and bar for us to enjoy some Red Stripe! We never felt hassled and Javia stayed with us the whole time. If you are going to Jamaica, you have to use KnowJamaica. Believe me, you will not be disappointed.

“Know Jamaica Firefly Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We booked the Firefly / James Bond Beach tour with Marva Shaw and Know Jamaica Tours. We were able to locate Marva easily and spent the day seeing this beautiful area and learning about their history. Firefly was a learning experience and had amazing views - some of the most beautiful we saw. We didn't spend time at JBB because it was packed with people and my husband was not feeling well - they had no problem taking us back to the port so he could get back on the ship to rest which was awesome as we were the only ones on this tour. Thank you Marva for a wonderful day - we hope to tour with you again!

“Know Jamaica Lives up to the Great Reviews!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had booked a cruise with a stop in Ocho Rios, and sadly I only found bad reviews of Ocho Rios as a port. It seemed that a lot of the people who gave negative reviews had done ship excursions that took them to the most crowded attractions at the most crowded times. I did some searching and found that this tour company is owned and run by a Jamaican family and I could not find a negative review anywhere. Our tour guide Javia, who grew up in the area, was very friendly, knowledgable and had great suggestions for what to see and do with our family. We learned a lot about the history of the area, the culture, even the plant life. Javia showed us a beautiful, free, out of the way beach that we had practically to ourselves. Finally, we went to a great open air restaurant where we tasted some fabulous jerk chicken before heading back to the ship. It was the best day of our cruise and we were so grateful to have found Know Jamaica tours.

“A great day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We had Javia as our tour guide. He was one of the best guides we ever had. He brought us to Dunn Falls, bamboo rafting and his secret spots. He was professional and always went above and beyond to make our tour that much better. We definitely recommend know jamaica tours!
