Hired Ritchie's van for a few hours while my wife and I were in Ochos Rios last November on a MSC cruise. Just found his card in my wallet and the service was so good, I had to come by and leave a message. We went to Scotchies for Jerk Chicken (laid back atmosphere-outdoor dining but fabulous food and good prices) and then up the hill to a beautiful overlook park that had a small bar there. Got great pictures of Ochos Rios and the cruise ship and a cold beer. Our driver was very courteous, engaging, and gave us a strong sense of safety while with him. Highly recommended private van service for those cruising or visiting Ochos Rios! Thanks Ritchies!

We were five couples from Cali looking for a fun day on a cruise stop. Richard was an excellent communicator prior to our trip, helping me craft a fun filled itinerary. He picked us up promptly at the cruise terminal and started us off at Dunn Falls. He found us an excellent guide to take us zip lining and through the falls. We followed that with a drive to Blue Hole, which was the highlight of the day. His handpicked guide was amazing and we had so much fun jumping into the falls and swimming in caves. We were hungry after all the swimming and hiking, so he took us to a great local place for jerk chicken, delicious plantains and bahama mamas. Lastly, he took us to a great shop to purchase souvenirs before we had to rush off to the ship. Richard was mindful of our timeline and best of all, had a cooler full of drinks and red stripe. He was witty and knowledgable about all things Jamaica. Everyone seemed to know and look up to him. We all enjoyed are day with Richard and would highly recommend his services.

Mr. Richie! He made our stop in Ocho Rios so memorable. I cannot say enough good things about him and his tour. Someone on a Facebook group recommended him and I read the reviews and decided to go with him. I’m so glad I did! He was so funny, had waters, sodas, and red stripes just for us in his super comfortable and well-air conditioned van. We went to this beautiful overlook, botanical gardens, and fern gully/blue hole. He knows his stuff when it comes to his hometown and country and everyone seems to know him! He even stopped and grabbed Jamaican bananas for us and they were divine. His tour and our day in beautiful Ocho Rios was the highlight of our cruise. Thanks again Mr. Richie!

Fantastic day with Richard as we explored the History and countryside of St. Ann's Parish (Ohos Rios). His knowledge is only superseded by his wit and candor....We were thoroughly entertained! He asked us what our interest were then he molded a tour that suited us. A special treat was our visiting a small coffee plantation were Mr. Black (the owner) .provided us an intimate look into the coffee industry of Jamaica but more importantly the culture surrounding the small agriculture businesses of the mountains of St. Ann's Richard Brooks will deliver....

Richard Brooks owner of Excursion Ocho Rios Day Tours and will coordinate whatever tour you want because it is private. This man is funny, supplies Red Stripe, pop, wata and knows his way around Ocho Rios. We decided to go sight seeing and some shopping . We wanted to see some of the area's highlights and he did not disappoint. He took us sightseeing through the St Ann Parish, Small towns and villages showing some lovely mansions on the hill side as well as a unique house in the shape of a ship along with its history. Jamaica is known to have the most churches per square mile of any country and we did make a few stops at some of them. We also stopped for some rum tasting and shopping. We toured with Richard 3 years earlier and he took us to a hidden shop. We asked and he remembered where and went back.We stopped at a well known place for Jerk Chicken and Pork, Scotchies and it was great. Tour was totally tailored to what we wanted to do and see. He will however take you to Dunns River, Blue Hole, Tubing, Snorkelling, Shopping or what ever you desire. He is a small business, is reasonable and entertaining. Highly recommend.
