Kind and Knowledgeable Guide
Nov 2021 • Friends
Winston (Masaman) was a pleasure to be around and gave us different options to choose from. It was just my friend and I who were picked up from the resort so we had more flexibility. Masaman drove us to the blue hole and our tour guide took us to the different spots to jump or swing. The falls were really heavy so the water wasn’t as calm as it usually is. If you plan to jump from the 25 foot spot, I would suggest a life jacket unless you’re used to jumping into the water from that high. You pop up much quicker.

After the blue hole, we asked to go to a souvenir shop where we sampled rum, purchased rum cakes and shot glasses. We went to Scotchies after, which had great Jerk chicken. Their sauce is more vinegary but the chicken was so good. We tipped both the tour guide and Masaman. Just keep that in mind it isn’t one person.

Ocho Rios cruise port and excursion
Nov 2021 • Couples
The blue hole and waterfalls was great for those that like the outdoor activities, it is a beautiful area with some fun plunges/ dives into the water areas. Guide at location was very knowledgeable with local plants/trees and energetic. Our tour driver , Winston, was fantastic. He is very knowledgeable about the area and will provide you with history and will answer any questions asked of him. Winston is friendly and reliable, he took us to a local shopping area where locals sell their own crafts and some of the ladies there also do braids. Expect to haggle for prices, it is expected and prices were fair. Winston took us to a local restaurant for Jamaican jerk chicken and it nice clean location and the food was all tasty. We tried chicken and pork and were both very good. We were also taken to a great high spot for a nice photo opportunity of the ocho rios bay with the cruise ship docked in background.

Overall I do recommend jamaicatours and Winston, he is a reliable and flexible. Our cruise had a last minute itinerary change, and he adapted to the different day port stop to provide us the tour and kept in communication with us via text, whatsapp and email.

Absolutely Amazing!
Mar 2020
Winston was an exceptional tour guide for my girlfriend and I while in Jamaica. He was very courteous and patient and took the time to show us all around Ocho Rios. Winston is very knowledgeable of the area and was a pleasure to spend the day with. He picked us up right from the Cruise port and it wasn't hard finding him at all. I strongly encourage everyone to book privately through Winton's company (Tour Jamaica Today) and deal directly with him versus third party websites. We'll definitely be seeing Winston again when we return to Jamaica!

Awesome tour company
Mar 2020
I made arrangements with Winston Gayle of TourJamaicaToday.com via email prior to our cruise. Told him the day/time we would arrive in port and what we were interested in seeing/doing, and made a $20.00 deposit. The remainder of the cost of the tour was to be paid to him in cash at the end of our tour. Due to unforeseen delays, our arrival into Ocho Rios was 5 hours late, but Winston was there to greet us with a sign with our name and a huge smile on his face! I had advised Winston there would be 4 of us, we did not want to go to the "tourist" hot spots; we wanted to see beautiful falls, pools of water, botanical gardens, eat authentic Jamaican food, etc. And he did NOT disappoint. He took us to the Blue Hole where we jumped from a platform into a beautiful pool of the bluest water ever and the waterfalls were right next to us. We had planned to go to Konoko Botanical Gardens and Falls, but when we arrived (late), the gardens had already closed. Winston and other tour guides who had arrived there tried to get us in, but it didn't happen. Disappointing, but understandable, and definitely not Winston's fault! He took us to Scotchies for some fantastic authentic Jamaican food: jerk chicken, jerk pork, bread, vegetables, etc. And since we requested non-tourist sites, he took us shopping at a flea-mart type place where some lovely ladies showed us their endless and reasonably priced souvenirs and goodies. As he drove, Winston gave us information about his country, the area, the townspeople, the good/bad/and ugly facts about crime, unemployment, etc. So informational and entertaining. He made sure we were back to our ship at the required time and he did not charge us the amount quoted because of our inability to get into Konoko Gardens. The 4 of us HIGHLY recommend using Winston Gayle and TourJamaicaToday.com for private tours of Jamaica.

Highly Recommend Private Tour!
Mar 2020
We just cruised to Jamaica March 9-14 and booked a private tour to the Blue Hole and shopping with Winston. He was great with communicating our booking and was waiting for us at the Port when we arrived. Blue Hole is must and so much better than Dunn's River.The guides at Blue Hole are very personable and will take pictures for you with your on phone. After the Blue Hole, Winston took us to a small local shopping area, prices were negotiable and we enjoyed supporting the locals. He took us to another stop to see a beautiful overlook of the island. We finished our tour at a fabulous local restaurant where we got a true taste of Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Pork and delicious sides. Winston got us back to our port on time that had time to show around near the port. Book through Winston directly vs through Trip Advisor! Let's help support these folks!! I would come back and re-book this excursion with Winston in a heartbeat!! Book yours TODAY!!

Winston! Making Jamaica Great Again!
ADVICE: We booked through Tripadvisor but I had spoken to Winston prior to our arrival and he had suggested we book directly through him and we could get in to see much more for the same price paid to Viator. I was having a bit of a hard time understanding his accent on the phone, but wished I could have booked directly with him. Winston is a stand up guy who takes a great deal of pride in showing off his country’s treasures.

We got off our cruise ship. Winston was just beyond the gate past all the vendors. He greeted us and we were immediately off the The Blue Hole. Along the way he taught us some of his native younger, Patoit, I believe that’s you spell it. He also got us some water shoes needed for our excursion. Once at the Blue hole, passed us along to Andre for a couple hours of cliff diving and waterfall climbing/swimming. All along the way Andre took several pictures for us. Once our time at the Blue Hole was complete, we tipped Andre and were off to Konika Falls.

Konika Falls was a bit more subdued and there was barely anyone there. We had a private tour guide, Abey. She was great and we instantly were off to view the grounds and climb a 300 foot waterfall. It looked impossible from the top but very much doable.

After Konika Falls we were taken to a Jerk Restaurant where we enjoyed some local Jamaican fare.

After eating Winston took us to a flea market where we bargained our way to several souvenirs and Hair Braiding.

Winston got us back to our ship with plenty of time to spare. He made our time in Jamaica one of the highlights of our trip. I feel that without his guidance and knowledge we would have been dropped at the port with little chance at seeing the “Real Jamaica”. Winston took our trip to the next level! I would book him without hesitation again!

Must see:

Blue Hole - cliff diving

Konika Falls - climbing falls a must

Jerk restaurant (get the chicken, pork was dry)

Flea market (must bargain, usually ended up paying 60% of their original price). They are very persistent though, more so than we were use to at other destinations

Tip: bring cash. This entire excursion consists of people who Winston sets you up with to enhance your experience. Tipping is not mandatory but expected

Amazing Tour Guide
Feb 2020
Winston is a top-notch tour guide. He picked us up early at the port, took us to the blue hole, shopping, and sightseeing afterward. He went out of his way to make our visit to Jamaica memorable.
I miss-scheduled our tour for one day after the cruise ship was in port. Winston figured this out and contacted me while on the ship. Just to be on the safe side he came to the port on the real day to give us our tour. He did not have to do this and could have just taken the cash and ran, but he didnt. He is a great tour guide and is very knowledgeable and friendly. 10 out of 10 recommend any of his tours.

Excellent Private Tour
Feb 2020
If you want to see the Blue Hole and surrounding falls I highly recommend you book this trip. The other tour groups visit the more popular areas of the blue hole area which means it is incredibly crowded. A few notes though before you go, if you are arriving from a cruise ship in Ochos Rios...
Walk straight from the port, through all the waiting tour buses and through the main blue gate, you'll see a security person there, keep walking straight from the gate and you'll reach an area where the private tour groups are. You'll know it is then because they will be carrying signs with people's names on them. We located Henry and he told us where to wait while he pulled up the car. We then were off on the tour.

The drive to the Blue Hole takes about 30 min through mostly rural areas. Henry provided us with a lot of information about the Ochos Rios area on our way. When you arrive at the Blue Hole Henry will hand you off to your guide. He will stay with the vehicle the entire time while you are enjoying your tour and he keeps the doors locked so your stuff is safe.

Bring a camera! We brought an old cell phone in a water proof case. Our guide popped it out of the case and took tons of photos of us as he guided us through the blue hole and the falls. You can jump in and use the rope swing if you want. As you are hiking you'll come upon little shacks where people are selling food, beer, etc. Bring cash with you if you want to buy anything during the tour. After the tour our guide took us back to Henry. We weren't sure what was considered a good tip, but we gave the guide $20 and the same to Henry at the conclusion of the trip.

Henry was more than willing to drive us to another spot, but we chose to head back to the cruise ship so he drove us back to the port after. This was an excellent trip, very well managed by Henry. He took very good care of us and made us feel really safe the entire time.
