My family loves cruising. When in Jamaica, we always use Peat Taylor. In addition to being affordable, they are dependable and flexible. We will definitely use them again next time.

“Peate Taylor & Re-Peat made our trip awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2010

We visisted Jamaica on December 24th with a group of 16 people. We did the Dunns River falls tour and White River tubing with Peat Taylor Tours. It was fabulous. Peat and his son kept us entertained with signing and informed about their beautiful city. I would recommend Peat Taylot Tours to anyone who is visiting Ocho Rio's. They are the best.

“Must-do shore excursion - Dunn's River Falls & White River tubing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2010

Our entire experience with Peat Taylor tours was exceptional. After leaving the ship we followed his instructions and met our tour. Peat's son was at the port waiting for us. We were driven in a clean, air-conditioned van to Dunn's River Falls. He told us exactly where to meet him when we were finished...and he was there on time, as promised. Dunn's River Falls is an awesome experience! Our family (age 11 to 72) all had a great time climbing the falls. After we finished, Peat along with his son met us. Another large family was joining us for the river tubing excursion. What a wonderfuly, relaxing trip -- very calm, clear water and the tubes all had bottoms so you did not need to worry about slipping out or scraping your bottom on the rocks. Again, Peat was waiting for us at the finish. The other family chose to be dropped off in town...he told them exactly how to get back to the ship...then he dropped us off at the port. He did not ask for any money until the end of the tour...which was very nice. Peat and his son were both very polite and friendly and shared stories of their family traditions and life on the island. I would highly recommend Peat Taylor tours to anyone considering a private shore excursion in Ocho Rios.

“Awesome day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2009

We travelled to Ocho Rios in November and stayed at Beaches Boscobel. Prior to heading down south, I read the forums on TA. Peat Taylor Tours was highly recommended by travellers so I decided to contact him and set a day up of sight seeing and shopping. To be honest I was nervous about making arrangements over the internet having never done that before but the reviews were very positive. So I went ahead and e-mailed Peat Taylor and made arrangements to visit Dunn's River Falls, the Cool Blue Hole and to finish off with a visit to Margaritaville in Ocho.

Well I can tell you that this was the HIGH-LIGHT of our holiday. We were a group of 10. Prior to our trip we set up our schedule for the day and we set a price. Peat showed up promptly at our resort to take us first to Dunn's River Falls. His nephew, Craig, also joined us which was fantastic. He guided us through the attraction and gave us tips and pointers on how to deal with the vendors. Next was The Cool Blue Hole. This was one of the most beautiful spots that I have ever seen. We all had a great time jumping into the cool blue waters of this little oasis. AMAZING!! BREATH-TAKING!!

Finally we finished off in the town of Ocho Rios at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville plus a little shopping.

Peat then returned us back to the resort.

I must say if you are interested in having your own personal tour guide then you should contact Peat Taylor. He is professional, entertaining and a pleasure. I am SO glad we did this tour.

“Wonderful tour!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2009

This is the second time we used Peat Taylor Tours. Peat Sr. was our guide the first time, and Peat Jr. was our guide the second time. Both were excellent--friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to include what we wanted to do. Peat Jr. took us on a tour around Ocho Rios, to a pottery factory, to the Blue Hole (beautiful), and tubing on the White River. He also sang, told about life in Jamaica, showed and explained trees and plants. What a delightful young man! We had a great day!
