I enjoyed the entire day with Courtney Tours. Our drivers were Norman, who picked us up from the resort and Malcolm, who took over and escorted us for thee rest of the day. We took a Horseback Ride on the beach, which was so Romantic. A photographer photographed us the whole time capturing every moment. We met local residents along the way and were able to do local shopping. Malcolm then drove us to a restaurant named Scothchies, were the food was very delicious! I met Samantha there and she personally greeted us with the warmest heart and open arms He then drove us to White River were we enjoyed rafting. We felt safe the entire time and I would highly recommend anyone to book with Courtney Taylor Tours.

We booked the following tour package: Dunn's River, Horseback Ride, Bamboo Rafting, Blue Hole. And we have zero regrets! Our experience was phenomenal. Courtney Taylor Tours Jamaica covered all of our needs. They were professional, knowledgeable, courteous and personable. I'm extremely detail-oriented and often prefer to have a written synopsis of exactly what I'm paying for. I sent a long message to the company and to my surprise, they replied and answered every concern and question. Whenever we return to Jamaica, this will be our 'go-to' tour company, for sure. I could go on and on, but I'll keep this one short. :)

The owner himself picked us up outside the pier in Ocho Rios & gave us a personal tour of the city. We went to Konoko Falls, Fern Gully, & shopping. We asked to go to a straw market. He took us to one. We asked to find a store Selling Jamaican coffee. He took us there. All in all a nice 1/2 day tour. Clean air Conditioned vehicle. Would certainly use again!

I booked a private tour with Courtney Taylor tours for my group of 8 as our shore excursion from the port at Falmlouth.

To start with they were 45 minutes late and we sat in the hot sun waiting for them to show up. While it was frustrating, we were still optimistic about enjoying our day in Jamaica.

Our first stop was for horseback riding. I have been horseback riding at Chukka before and absolutly loved it. I was expecting something similar. However, that was certainly not the case. We literally rode horses along a busy road and then through a sketchy neighborhood where my teenage daughters were heckled by some locals. Sadly the nieghborhood and area where we ultimately "swam" with the horses was not an ideal place to be. By swimming, it was wading about 5 feet off shore with the horses. I much would have preferred to go to a place more like Chukka. In all fairness, it was only $40, but price wasn't an issue for this trip and the tour company choose this place and did not give me options to go somewhere nicer.

Second part was the blue hole. This place was absolutly beautiful. The guide was very nice and we ended up purchasing the digital photos they took for us. I was a little leery about buying it. They charged $80.00 and said they would email the pictures to us. I am happy to report that we got the pictues later that day and they were beautiful. The unfortunate part about this is that I felt a deceived. We signed up and paid for a blue hole trip. I ended up having to go back to the van to get something and took a wrong turn and ended up at the actual "blue hole" entrance. In talking to some of the people who were running it, I realized that we may have been misled. I thought it was a little strange that we pulled into a little parking lot with sort of a shack when this was a larger attraction. From what I could figure out we were at a little off shoot that was not actually part of the blue hole, but had a path that they made that led you to the same place. The path to get there was quite strenous and at times dangerous to use. This would explain that it was not the actual tourist "blue hole" that was advetised. I paid $15 per person (plus tips) for this stop.

Our next stop was lunch at Schotchies for lunch. This meal was wonderful. This is our second trip here and it did not dissapoint.

Our driver Bob, was friendly and knowledgeable and did a good job of keeping us informed and entertained.

Greetings and we must apologize for the hitches you had on this day. We always try our very best to make the tours as perfect as possible but at times things might not be. We used all horse riding company on the island. This one has been used by us for years and yes its more affordable while it gives you a little insight of a jamaican community and a ocean ride. Has for the Blue Hole it wasn't a misled the attractions has 4 entry to the river or properties that leads to the river. The main part of the river is the lagoons and the waterfalls. The further you are from the waterfalls is the more strenuous the hike and journey will be. The property you used was less crowded and just next to the waterfalls and lagoons. It's a new entry but same river, same lagoons and water falls but not as crowded.

Excellent day with a knowledgeable driver called Karlos. AKA…. PHD. (Pot Hole dodger! ) he was accompanied by Jody.
We soon realised it was the same guide we had 10 years ago.
Karlos arrived punctually and drove us to the Hampton Rum estate, giving us the local history on route. Where we had a tour of a working distillery. He was on hand throughout the day checking we had everything we needed.
Karlos then skilfully drove his bus around the roughest roads I have ever seen, back to our hotel.
Fantastic service yet again. Thank you.

Samantha and our driver "Omar" (not really sure what the driver's name were because my husband nicknamed him Omar), were GREAT!!! She contacted all of the tour operators before we got to each one of them to ensure they were ready for our arrival. Prior to our trip I had spoken with Courtney Taylor Tours and pre-arranged our excursions. They kept in constant contact with me before and up until the day of our excursions I am a travel agent and had a group of 25 people on October 10th and 27 people on October 11th for 2 different excursions. This was a long ride from Montego Bay, but they kept us entertained with music, laughter and fun. They interacted with us as if they had known us our entire lives. It felt like we were riding with family instead of tour operators. My husband had a great time joking with Sam and "Omar" who he named as our driver. He even had everyone calling him a young chili pimp. A time was had on both days and their professionalism was over and beyond our expectations. Being a travel agent who sends lots of people to Jamaica I will definitely be recommending Courtney Taylor Tours to all of my clients. They are the best!!!! My clients are still talking about the time we had!!!

We have used Courtney Taylor tours several times and we love them. Courtney was actually out driver and Samantha was out guide. Michael was in training. They make u feel safe and like family. They keep track of the time and make sure you are back in plenty of time to catch ship. Highly recommend them.

Please don’t hesitate on booking through Courtney Tours. We have used him several times, coming from a cruise ship and always receive 5 star service. I’ll start with great communication through email and quick responses. Payments are safe online. If you are unsure of excursions they can offer advice on things for you to do. Always timely and professional. He and Samantha are very easy to talk to and they make you feel safe, which is a feeling we all want when venturing off. Also, his vehicles are always nice and appear well serviced. Courtney Tours made our entire experience A+. I will book with this company anytime. DEPENDABLE AND WELL WORTH IT!

Great Service! Nordia and Anthony were awesome. We got to hear the history of Jamaica as well visit some beautiful sites. They were very accommodating to our diverse group. Everyone had a great time. This is definitely the company to book with for excursions.
