"J" was a fantastic tour guide. He gave us tons of history, answered all of our questions, drove us everywhere he thought we should go and where we wanted to go, took us to the best lunch spot, and was overall a great guy. We took a personal tour for our group of 7. He made Montego Bay my husband's... More

After reading the reviews here, i emailed Marva Shaw about a tour for my family. We came to Falmouth Jamaica on the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the Seas. By the time we got off the boat, Javia was waiting for us in the new, well maintained air conditioned van. Our family of 10 (ages 8 to 72) hopped in, and... More

I will start off by saying we booked VERY last minute for a day tour, and Marva accommodated beautifully. Our tour guide, Avril, picked us up on time with the goal of going to Dunn's Falls and see the local scene. He was knowledgable about local trees and plants. Would pull over to show us various foliage and local fruits.... More

We hired Know Jamaica based on positive Trip Advisor reviews. We booked a car and driver for around 5 hours. The main thing we wanted was a local driver who knew the area, was flexible over how long we spent at each attraction, would inform us about Jamaican culture and be honest and safe in their dealings with us. We... More

Better late then never, on June 10, 2016, while staying at RIU Palace Mobay, I took a tour with Javia Shaw. I felt very safe & taken care of the entire day, and yes i travel solo. I was fortunate enough to be on the island when no ships were in port and many places had only locals. From fresh... More

We took a cruise last week to Cozumel, the Caymans, and Jamaica. Without question, the Jamaica tour we took with Know Jamaica Tours with Javia as our guide was the best part of the trip! Javia was probably the best tour guide I've had on any trip - and I've been on many. He was flexible - allowing us to... More

What a great excursion! You can't go wrong booking with these guys. Very helpful getting around the island. Blue Hole was definitely the highlight of the visit. You won't believe it until you see it!!

I had previously met Javia and Marva Shaw (owners and operators of knowjamaica.com) when I went to Jamaica on a cruise with a large group in 2015. When we started planning a family vacation, they immediately came to mind. We were taking our 4 grandsons.......our heart and soul and knew we would be in good hands. I exchanged a couple... More

We had such a great day with Know Jamaica Tours (KJT)! As two women in our late twenties/early thirties we wanted to see the authentic side of Jamaica and go off the beaten track whilst feeling safe. This tour was perfect. KJT are specifically set up to accommodate bespoke tours for small groups or couples who want to get to... More
