“Really great job. Everyone we met was so friendly...........”
We had a great time using Marvyn's paradise tours. My wife was a little skittish at the start when we started the day at Blue Hole and it was very remote and took you past some very poor areas which were in very bad repair and when we got out we were the only ones there...for her it was a little "scary" and by the time we got there all she wanted to do was go back to the ship. Jamaica is a very poor country and you do really get to see the real Jamaica and learn about its culture, but it is a shock for some spoiled American types. Don't be the first one off the boat and be the first one there, others did show up but she already decided that she didn't want to be there. Had we gotten there 30 minutes later I'm thinking everything would have been fine. Our guide was very understanding and nice. Then we went tubing and Dwight was the absolute best. He sang for us as we went down the river and I could see the wife I know coming back. We then went shopping and had a good time, another hint, do not buy from the first place, wheel/deal and if you don't like the price go next door, they all have the same stuff. If no one takes you up on it, then you are offering too little. But after we went to the first guy, next door started at his lowest price........
Then we had lunch at a wonderful jerk place that was the best food we ate all week.
All in all....especially after it started out so awkwardly (through NO FAULT of their own) by the end we both agreed this was the highlight of our cruise and would do it again next time we came to Jamaica. I'm sure we would not miss the blue hole next time though.
One thing when you ask Marvyn how much his tour will cost, ask him if that includes costs of places where you will go. Just to make sure you know in advance.
Thank you so much for a great day Marvyn.
