After reading many 5 star reviews on trip advisor, and emails back and forth planning our stops, we chose Glen and Jamaica Xplored for our outing while in Ocho Rios last week. Glen is a very friendly guy, easy going and engaged our kids in conversation and history lessons about his island. Beer, ginger beer, water and banana chips were provided as our snack. Personality wise, Glen was great. My complaint is, that when we chose the Blue Hole I expected to go to the REAL Blue Hole that we saw pictures of on Trip Advisor and watched videos on YouTube of...where there would be multiple places to Jump and a waterfall to go underneath. This was NOT the Blue Hole we were taken to. The place Glen took us was very small with only 2 spots to jump and both spots were identical just from a different rock. Very disappointing and not worth the money when watching and comparing videos from the REAL Blue Hole. After 2 jumps each, we left and it was a downpour. So Glen took us to one of our planned stops, Margaritaville. It was very nice there, their beach area had lots of sea shells and the kids enjoyed jumping on the trampolines out in the ocean, despite the rain. It was nice to get away from the standard Hotel buffets. Glen picked us up from Margaritaville and took us to our next planned stop of Konoko Falls. It was after 2pm when we arrived, which I thought was fine until we were rushed thru our tour. We were told the snake was put away for the day so the kids couldn’t hold the snake...which they wanted to, and we weren’t able to climb the falls as it was “late and there were no guides”. The whole time we were there it felt as if they just wanted to close for the day. Overall, I don’t feel we got our money’s Worth for our trip with Glen and I am still disappointed we were not taken to the Real Blue Hole Location. I feel we would have been better off going thru the hotel and purchasing a real tour.

Glen was one of the best parts of our day excursion in Ocho Rios! He picked us up at the port and took us directly to Blue Hole and had drinks and local snacks ready when we got in the car. He was fantastic with showing us the island, telling us about the history and took us around many local areas that we don't feel we would have gotten with a large excursion - such as driving through Fern Gully, explaining the school system to our kids, showing us local trees with different fruit and so much more. While we were at Blue Hole he even took many great pictures and videos with my phone so we could all enjoy our experience. All was included with our price - drinks in the car, entrance fees and lunch at a fantastic local place - Scotchies! When we arrived for lunch he got us a table, brought us beer and soda and then brought us a great variety from the menu so we didn't have to stand in any lines and then sat and enjoyed lunch with us. Our kids all agreed that he was the best tour guide we will ever have! Cannot recommend him enough!

We wanted to visit places to get a taste of Jamaican wildlife, nature, plantation and food. Over a couple of email exchanges, and a few questions from Glen, he came up with a full day itinerary that seemed to cover what we were looking for. What a great day - and Glen's commentaries throughout were informative and humerous. His vehicle seats at least 7 and he provided water and Red Stripe in a cooler. Glen is the soul of Jamaica and we cannot praise him highly enough. He made a potentially interesting day a wonderful day. Everywhere we went he took care of us. He likes to come across as a bit of a lad (which he is!!) but he is also a true gent who takes great care of his customers. We visited: Jamaica Swamp Safari, Fire Water, Scotchies, Sun Valley Plantation and Noel Coward's home FireFly (which was previously Captain Morgan's home). The fee he charged included all drinks, food ans entrance fees. It was also a very full day from 08:00 until around 19:00 Super value for money. If there are any James Bond fans out there ~Glen knows the lot - including where specific scenes were filmed. Absolutely first class day. Short trip, half day or full day - Glen will provide it.

Myself and my family spent the day with Glen. My Dad had been communicating with Glen to arrange a day full of special moments for my Mom, who was returning back home to Jamaica for a holiday. Excellent correspondence with great advice and information. As for the day itself we could not have asked for a more perfect guy. This gent has character, humour, a phenomenal amount of general knowledge and of course knowledge about Jamaica. He genuinely cares about making your day the best experience that he can and clearly spends a lot of time planning your day/trips. Following a request from my Dad, Glen created a special moment that genuinely meant the world to my Mom, i cannot thank him enough. Nuff respect I have no hesitations in highly recommending Glen.

My family of 5 (wife and 3 kids) traveled to Jamaica in mid-February. Based on prior experiences with the big tourist bus tours, we knew that a private, customized trip was the way to go. I found Jamaica Xplored on TripAdvisor and, based on his positive reviews and his thoughtful responses to my emailed questions, we booked two trips with Glen. Our first trip was a full-day affair that included stops at Sun Valley Plantation, James Bond Beach, and Blue Hole. On another day we drove to Dunn's River Falls where we hiked up the falls. I won't bore you with nitty details for these destinations (you can read reviews on TripAdvisor), but will say that we had a blast driving with Glen. Whether learning the history and culture of the island, hearing his many stories and personal insights, or simply kicking back listening to music, this customized tour is the way to go. I would have felt safe traveling with Glen to any part of the island. Glen is friendly, flexible, honest and fair. If you have any doubts about booking Jamaica Xplored, I'd like to share something from our experience. My son left his sneakers behind at James Bond Beach. Later we received an email from Glen stating that a bag was waiting for us at the guest relations desk of our hotel (Moon Palace). Glen had returned to the beach, located my son's sneakers at lost & found, and delivered to our hotel. This is a tribute to his sens of high character and responsibility. You simply will not receive the same level of personal attention or comfort from any mega bus tour. Go with Glen! Nuf Respec in return, Darrin, Debby and Josh, Nathan, Adina
