“Margaritaville, Negril”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This tour was by far the nicest one. It allowed us to go into different parts of Jamaica and see it for what it really is. The ride is a bit over 2hrs but with a good tour guide and driver it goes quick. We went through Montego Bay and Negril. Made a stop off to use toilets going there and coming back. We planted ourselves for a few hours non the white sands of Negril...oh my goodness, what a beach! Had a taste of Margaritaville as well and then made our way to Rick's Cafe to watch the cliff jumpers and what would have been a beautiful sunset, had the sun been out. Great day, nice ppl and such memories.

“Great experience with Chris!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

We went for two separate excursions with Chris' company. Chris was super fast to reply via email. He and his employee were very attentive and relaxed; it was a personal experience as opposed to an impersonal tour. We went tubing, to waterfalls, and to a great little spot for lunch. Chris offered to bring us anywhere we wanted to go and was very accommodating - he even brought us to the grocery store!

“Luminous Lagoon & Blue Hole”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

If you want a personalized tour of Ocho Rios and other local excursions... Chris is the man!!! My girlfriend planned our trip with friends and found Chris on tripadvisor. He was on-time and very courteous when it came to scheduling a pick-up time. Chris even took us to get "REAL" Jamaican Jerk food from Scotchies - gotta have the festival..

I will definitely come back and contact Chris again..

“Awesome local experience- thanks Chris!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I got Chris' info from the blue hole tripadvisor reviews, I read a few and checked out his website, www.chrisjamaicatours.com, so I texted him and he quickly texted back. We scheduled a tour for the next morning, today, and he met us promptly at our scheduled time at the front lobby in his van with flowers. He is soo friendly and gave us a great deal on a horseback riding tour. It was a local stable not the commercialized one you get at the hotel, it was awesome we got to go up the mountain and see the locals homes, shops, clubs, sports bars, etc. And then down to the ocean- little star and Joe (our horses) were quite excited to head toward the water! Our guides John Wayne and...I didn't get my husbands guides name, were awesome!! It was just the two of us and we felt very safe- and had a great time. And they took pictures of us the whole time- with our camera!! Great experience!! We are actually taking the luminous lagoon tour with Chris this evening! We definitely recommend Chris and the local tours he offers, unique, personalized experience and you get a better deal than the hotels will sell you.

“Unforgetable Experiences with Chris - Chris Jamaica Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

First, a few words about Chris (www.chrisjamaicatours.com) - he is very personable, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, clearly loves what he does and takes pride in his business. He told us a lot about Jamaica which we wouldn't have known otherwise. The resort we stayed at did not provide transportation from the airport, so we made arrangements for Chris to pick us up. On the way to the resort we made plans for the rest of the week. First Chris took us to the Luminous Lagoon which is full of bioluminescent microorganisms which glow when the water is disturbed. Yes, you have to go there when it's dark, which makes some people nervous, but if you put aside any of your preconceived notions, you will have a magical experience (wear a bathing suit and bring a towel - yes, you are going for a swim). The next day Chris took us to the Blue Hole in Ocho Rios, which is a MUST! It's a cascade of water falls which flow into 15-30 foot deep water holes. First you climb the falls and then you jump off into the pools. You will have a local guide (ours was Alex). It truly is amazing! Then Chris took us to Dunn's River Falls, which you have to do in Ocho Rios just to say you did it. It's neat, but very touristy. Finally, Chris took us for a late lunch to Dave's Lobster Shack where we felt like we were in one of the episodes of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations." It really was just a shack full of local families just hanging out and the lobsters were out of this world. All in all, an unforgettable experience, and Chris has become our friend. Thank you so much!
