Marks tours was awesome. I read all of the positive reviews so I booked with him. Mark is an awesome guy who was willing to do whatever we wanted. He gave us so much information about the people and culture of Jamaica. He offered to take us for lunch, or to a beach to swim after our interesting and informative tour. Mark makes you feel like one of his family. He took us to Fern Gully and told us about the trees and fruit that grows in the country and even brought samples from his trees at his home. Do yourself a favor and choose Marks Tours if you want an excellent day spent in his beautiful country. I give him a 10/10, you will too!

Mark was a fantastic driver and tour guide: dependable, personable, and very knowledgeable about the region. He went out of his way to get to know everyone in our large group and make sure that we felt comfortable every step of the way. I can't recommend his company enough! Thank you again for making my first trip to Jamaica so memorable!

Mark became a member of the family. I feel more like I was hanging out with my uncle than with a hired driver. It started when he picked me and my boyfriend up at the airport. He was immediately warm, funny, had allll these interesting facts about Canada and the connections to Jamaica, and got us from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios safely and quickly. He had driven other members of my family earlier that day, so I asked if he would be able to be our driver for the duration of the trip and let me tell you, he MADE OUR TRIP. First thing, he helped me with organizing everything I was hoping to do. He was especially helpful when I was trying to find a private boat to take my family group of 15 (aged 23 to 73) out for a day. He took us to the best restaurants, the best beaches, used his persuasive personality to get us into some private beaches that we normally wouldn't have access to, he just took such good care of us, I can't say enough. He was always available, always on time, always in an amazing mood, his rates were SO reasonable, and truly we just became so close. During our trips he also told us historic facts about the areas we passed through, and went above and beyond trying to take us off the beaten path. Mark is incredible at his job and you can tell he truly loves meeting people and giving them the best possible experiences in Jamaica that he can. And he's so kind d. He messaged me today to send a happy new year message to me and my family! I can't wait to go back to Jamaica and see him again, he completely elevated our experience in Ocho Rios! Love you Mark, and see for Christmas 2022!!!

We booked Marks Tours in Ochos Rios and He was wonderful. Picked us up at the port, negotiated with security, transported us to a beach, historic tour and markets at all at a reasonable price. Mark is knowledgeable, articulate, smart and funny. He hit some amazing points on culture, food (sweet-sop and Juici Pattes)and Island history. Even my 16 and 18 year old kids Loved him. Highly recommend.

Mark took my Mom and me to Blue Hole and Dunn's River in his minivan today. It was very clean and new. Once we arrived at the Blue Hole, he hooked us up with a guide who took great care of us, taking pictures and videos for us. He was very patient and careful so that we wouldn't get hurt. Once we were done at Blue Hole, we stopped at Scotchie's for some jerk chicken and pork. Then he dropped us off at Dunn's River and waited for us while we took our time to climb the waterfalls. It was a rainy/cloudy day so the place was quite empty, which was surprising since I saw a lot of people at Blue Hole. I did not see any big groups of people climbing up holding hands at Dunn's River. I found Mark here on TA and had to book him based on all the great reviews! He was very knowledgeable about everything including history/culture. He is a great conversationalist and explained a lot of things to me. I would highly recommend Mark if you're planning on visiting Ocho Rios! We really enjoyed our day with him! His prices are very fair/reasonable as I did my research when booking, and it's super easy to book with him over email. He was very responsive over email. Thank you, Mark, for the great day! I'll be referring you to my friends and family.
