“Ask for Dale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Dale picked us up from the airport and had a cooler full of Red Stripe, water and juice. His van was very clean. Dale also took us on three excursions: the yves falls, black river safari, and appleton rum tour. Along the way he stopped to get us sugar canes, local candy, a coconut for me to drink the water from (I wasn't feeling well), to a Jamaican fast food place to eat and to shops. He showed us a clove tree along the way, which was cool, and took us to where they catch fish. Dale takes the scenic route! He is a very great driver going above and beyond. Dale also took us back to the airport on our last day there.

“Real Driver. Real Jamaica.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

My Husband and I took a trip to Jamaica in April. Our ride with Shorty to and from Dolphin Cove was a highlight of our trip. From the moment he greeted us at our hotel, we felt comfortable. He went above and beyond, telling us of Jamaica's rich History and asking us of our own. An instant friend. We could have talked to him for hours! Shorty is one of those people that reminds you there is good in the world. Seriously, just 'good people". I highly recommend you book a tour with him:)

“Let Shorty take care of you - the best driver on the island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Shorty picked us up at the airport and drove us both ways to Negril. We arranged it by email with him in advance and he responds to emails asap. Even though our flights changed at the very last minute Shorty was there waiting for us right on time. He is SUPER reliable, and he is also a SUPER nice person working hard to build his own business by being reliable, trustworthy, and friendly. We liked Shorty so much that we booked him all to ourselves for a whole day to take us to some "real deal" Jamaican attractions. Just let him know some of the places you'd like to visit and he'll put it all together for you, and make suggestions for local experiences along the way. For example, we got hungry so he stopped in the drive thru at Juicy Patty for the island's best patties. We never would have found that place without Shorty. There's nothing like being in Negril and knowing that you have your own driver who is reliable and knows the hidden gems of Negril and outlying areas! We recommend him to everyone. Thanks so much Shorty!

“Cliff Jumping!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Shorty was our driver for another excursion and we ended up getting him to take us on a tour of Negril. He showed us the ropes of Negril; food, shopping and fun! This was definitely one of the highlights or our whole honeymoon!

“Airport Transfer & Taxis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I booked our transfers online as I already knew Shorty from previous visits. He picked up us on time both ways & is a really good guy. He had some iced beer & drinks ready for us which after a long flight was really welcome.

Will be using him again next year.
