Owner description: When hearing the words "tour company", most people picture the big, stuffy tour bus, packed with strange travelers. JuJu Tours is the complete opposite of that stereotype! We are an American owned company whose number one goal is to meet American standards. While practicing safety and maintaining professionalism is our number one priority, JuJu maintains a very laid-back "vibe" on all of our outings. Our tour guides are both knowledgeable and energetic American and Jamaican nationals. In order to offer our customers the best of both worlds, one female and male tour guide from each country attend all tours – dreadlocks, flip-flops and all. Every outing is completely private, for both big and large groups, allowing our guests to have a more intimate trip and customize the excursion to their liking. No other tour company on the island offers and delivers such personalized experiences. JuJu has over forty tours to choose from. Large groups, families with kids, couples - we have something for everyone. Amongst our array of different choices, both “touristy” and “off-the-beaten-path” excursions are available. Our primary mission, however, is to live up to our tag line “Jamaica Unleashed, Jamaica Uncovered!” Whether it be the secret cliffs to jump from, the limestone caves to explore or the rustic restaurants to enjoy a true Jamaican meal, we aim to help our guests discover Jamaica’s hidden charms and treasures. Proudly, JuJu is also the only company on the island that officially offers nightlife tours to the local dance clubs and reggae beach bars. We understand travelers tend to be hesitant about leaving their resorts, (most especially at night), and that is why two tour guides join all parties inside the venue and take them home at whatever time they choose. We have safe and comfortable vehicles of all different sizes. Roundtrip transportation, admission into all attractions, an authentic Jamaican lunch and beverages (yes, that includes booze!) are included with all tours. We also throw in a complimentary high-res photo CD of each trip for each customer.

“Honeymoon Excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Me and my Husband got married in Runaway Bay and then went to Negril for our honeymoon! We had a Dune Buggy Excursion as our wedding gift and had the pleasure of going with JuJu Tours. We had Angela show us around, take us to our excursion and out for a authentic lunch, quite the experience, she also took a bunch of photos of us and emailed them to us right away (which was nice seeing as how we dropped our camera in the water and lost all of our wedding/honeymoon photo's). I know the feeling of wanting to go around Jamaica to see the culture, but just not being sure who should take you and who you can trust, and JUJU tours has helped that situation, they are An American company and it made us feel MUCH more comfortable! We will definitately make sure we call them next time we are in Jamaica, and I will recommend them to anyone going! you will NOT be dissappointed!!!

“Highlight of our Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My wife is a teacher who is always most definitely ready for a relaxing getaway at the Christmas break. So, the beautiful beaches of Negril seemed like an ideal way to get lots of beach time but also perhaps to catch glimpse of and interact with a unique and beautiful culture. To this end, we found JuJu Tours here on TripAdvisor and, based on the glowing reviews, booked the Martha Brae River Rafting Tour & the Countryside Tour. While we loved our time on the beach, the JuJu tours were BY FAR the most impactful, memorable parts of our experiences in Jamaica.

The tour guides are so warm and friendly that you feel like you are with friends from Jamaica vs. somebody just doing another tour they have done a thousand times before. Having Natalie and Justin as guides for the Countryside Tour was a great opportunity for us to learn about areas and traditions that we would have no way of knowing about otherwise. They also took some great pics of us (seeing that Justin is also a photographer, your pics were good, too Natalie :) We were inspired by the strong and joyful spirits of all the people we met on the Tour. The door to these experiences would have been totally closed were it not for JuJu.

We would also highly recommend the Martha Brae River Rafting Tour. Garth was a great guide. Again, he made us so comfortable that it felt like we had already known him. It was a bit of a drive, but with great conversation and reggae. The Martha Brae River is absolutely beautiful. You truly feel lost in time rafting down the river. Very enjoyable!

To summarize, if you're looking to add something to the beach experience, we can't recommend JuJu highly enough. They are worth every penny for providing authentic experiences that I don't believe you could get by yourself. Thanks for listening.

“The Real Negril”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Our trip started with coolers full of rum punch and Red Stripes. A van picked us all up at our resorts and hulled us into the wilderness where were sure to find an amazing adventure. It was sunny and beautiful as we explored Mayfield Falls, a gorgeous walk up a waterfall-strewn mineral stream. We swam through underwater tunnels an lept from treetops all guided by locals who were both informative and genuine.

Exploring the depths of a cavern whose watery depths have yet found no end was the beginning of the best night of our entire trip. The sky turned grey with torrential rain as we rain, grinning down a muddy road at the center of a tiny jungle village. Chickens and goats wandered the roadsides, locals took cover in their houses, offering cold beer as we passed. We found sanctuary in a laid-back bar that was little more than a counter top and a few stools. The atmosphere was incredible, and the weather drew our group to bond under a thatched roof and the bottom of a glass of rum. As the rain subsided, we swam in a gorgeous blue pond surrounded by a breath-taking garden.

I can't imagine having had a better trip. Not only was it a taste of REAL Negril, it was warm, inviting, accommodating, and driven by a sincere love for Jamaica. If you like to have trained peacocks carry you around and serve you your drinks, this may not be the trip for you. But if you want a taste of the real Jamaica, laid upon the breast of mother earth in one of the most beautiful geographic phenomenons on the planet, you won't find a better experience anywhere.

“The Highlight of our trip! Best Experience Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

There is a reason why JuJu Tours is # 1. We booked the "Country Side" and "Shopping" tour and could not have been happier with our decision! From the beginning to end, our day was filled with great surprises, good company, yummy food, cold beverages (readily available), and lots of great conversations with Angi. She is truly made for this! We felt like a friend was showing us around rather than a tour guide. She knew most of the locals and took us around neighborhoods we would not have seen without her. We visited a nursery and elementary school and the children were amazing! They were thrilled when they got the pencils, crayons, and stickers we took for them, it went a long way:) I don't want to go into details of the tour and spoil it for those who are planning to book this, but be ready for a fun filled day! And oh yeah, you don't have to worry about pictures. Angi took some amazing pictures of us with her and our camera. Your whole tour will be captured by Angie while you sit back and enjoy what Negril have to offer.

We also booked a car service to take us out on our first night in Jamaica. Garth was our driver and he was amazing! He was easy going, easy to talk to, funny, and made us feel safe and welcomed! We just regret not taking pictures with him:( Thank you JuJu tours for such a wonderful experience! It was definitely the highlight of our trip!

Don't hesitate to book your upcoming tour with JuJu tours! You will not be disappointed!! Book! Book! Book! Book!!

“Best tour company in the Carribean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

My wife and I visited Negril, Jamaica in Mid-Dec. It was the seventh Carribean island that we visited in 2012. We've used trip advisor to book tour companies on every island that we've visited. Although we've had amazing experiences with other tour companies, I've never been compelled to write a review until now. Angi and her staff are in a league of their own! They go above and beyond to make sure your trip to Jamaica is the very best it can be. We used Juju tours for an airport shuttle to and from Montego Bay to our resort in Negril. Garth was our driver both times and he was very friendly and willing to answer any questions we had, not to mention he always had beer on ice and great tunes playing! We also booked a countryside tour with Juju, which was the highlight of our trip! My wife and I had brought donations of school supplies, dolls, and soccer balls that we passed out to the children. Spending time with the children was a special moment for us and one I'll never forget. Natalie and Justin were our tour guides for this tour, as well as the blue hole mineral tour that we added on at the end of the day. They were fantastic tour guides and they took some amazing pictures of us along the way. I definitely recommend doing both of these tours in combination! On our second day in Jamaica, we had Garth pick us up from our resort and take us to a local crafts market so we could do some shopping, before taking us to Rick's Cafe. Rick's Cafe is a must see if you visit Negril! We were able to cheer on the cliff jumpers and watch the sunset while we ate dinner. On our fourth day, Angi picked us up from our resort and we met up with Seymour (Boat Captain) at the beach for our snorkel trip out to Booby Cay island. This was far and away the best snorkeling I've ever done in the Carribean! The pictures speak for themselves. I was greatful to have Angi and Seymour in the water with us to help point out things that we might have overlooked. My wife and I couldn't stop talking about this tour when we got back to the resort, so we booked it again on the day we were flying out. On the second snorkel trip, we actually swam next to two giant eagle rays, an amazing experience. It was the perfect end to our time in Jamaica! Our trip would not have been the same had we booked through the resort, instead of Juju tours. We talked to numerous guests at our resort who were disappointed by the overcroded excursions that they had experienced. If you want your trip to Jamaica to be the best, then book with the best!
