Well I wanted to first start off by saying we could not keep our planed reservations with Kemrod at Riley Tours due to a 4 hour delay getting off the ship. Kemrod said they would wait. After 3 hours we said we still had no idea when we would expect to have access to leave our ship and cancelled our plans. He was very understanding and on my next visit he will be my man! We had booked him for 4 hours as a driver to 2-3 destinations in the Ocho Rios area.
This would have been the 2nd time using Riley Tours! I would recommend. They arw very accommodating, provide recommendations and are very competitively priced.

We arrived in Jamaica with no excursion plans.
I found 'Smiley' by searching through the hotels Facebook page for reviews and recommendations, and then very easily messaged him on FB messenger. 'Smiley' could immediately give us prices per person for a trip we definitely wanted to do, and gave us other welcome excursion ideas too! Prices were perfectly reasonable, and the service was excellent-prompt pick up, personalised service, our valuables were safely left in the vehicle throughout our trip, no rushing. We were a group of 7, and we had a comfortable journey in a clean, spacious mini van.
Would have no concerns about booking 'Smiley' again- thank you!

I used Riley tours multiple times during my 8 days stay in Jamaica. I can not stay enough good things about this company.

Riley was very quick to respond on whatsapp when i was planning my trip. Once we reached, he was flexible enough to allow changes to our itinerary as we wanted. We were also able to add quick stops for groceries when we needed.

Most of my trips were with Joan and she was always on time (before time actually) and very professional, pointing to us different places we passed through them. We learnt so much about Jamaica from her. She was so easy to talk to and felt like we had a family member driving us. We loved that when she dropped us to our airbnb, she took us for a drive around the area and showed us where we can get food and shop for anything we need. She had such good recommendations for everything.

I know next time when i visit Jamaica, I don’t have to find another tour operator amd i am going to recommend them to all my friendsand family. Thanks Joan and Riley for such an amazing time.

Riley Tours was recommended to us by a fellow globetrotter friend of ours. Not only did we find a new go-to tour guide, but I feel we also made a good friend. He was very easy to work with. He showed up at our villa promptly at the time we discussed. Riley is very professional, prompt and personable. My husband and I self curated our tour, and with Rileys help we were able to set up a great itinerary. Riley timed our tour perfectly, and we were able to see and do exactly what we wanted. He even stopped a few times along the way so we could take in beautiful views and a few pictures and even to get snacks, and drinks along the way. During our tour, we talked , and laughed,, we did two excursions that took a bit of time, and when we were done Riley was right there waiting for us. He really does make you feel like family, and will continue to be my go-to for my personal, and group tours. We will be visiting Port Antonio later this year, and will be booking Riley tours for that location as well. I highly recommend his services, for solo, families, or group travelers. Thank you Riley for an amazing tour, see you soon!

We already had a few tours with Mr.Riley in the past and were happy to find him at the list for Covid-19 certified touroperators this time. So we booked him for airport transportation from Kingston to the Northcoast. Since we never lost the contact over the years, he was more than happy to welcome us with our favourite beer and of course a pattie.

During our stay he made even a tour possible to Martha Brae Rafting and Falmouth. He arranged the tour and even picked up another friend of us, who was more than glad to see us again and we had such a beautiful day together.

Despite the Corona measures, we had a really good time in Jamaica and Mr. Riley's professionalism and warmth played a large part in it. Thank you Kemrod for the great hospitality.

We used Riley for the airport transfer to the Bahia Principe in Runaway bay. Communication was very good and they were very prompt and courteous. Kemrod was our driver on the return trip to the airport and shared much knowledge about the island with us and provided a great conversation. I would highly recommend them!

If you need transportation in Jamaica, he is your guy!It was our first time in Jamaica, and Riley made it very special for the both of us. My husband and I used his services for airport pick up/dropoff, as well as for excursions and shopping. I was very impressed by his reasonable price and friendly demeanor. We got to ride along with him and his wife, which was also a very pleasant experience. They both gave us fun facts and historical information on Jamaica, which was an added bonus. I was nervous doing a pick up service because I had never done one before. However, meeting Riley was like meeting an old friend you haven't seen in a few years. I felt safe,and comfortable by his presence. We hope to go back to Jamaica in a few years or so, and will definitely be using his services again. I regret not getting a picture of us with him and his wife, but I will always have the fond memories. Thank you Riley for making our trip so special!

I had the best time with my tour. MR.Kemrad Riley Himself took the Family out. We did the horse back riding on the beach and on to some great dining. This was like hanging with a good friend you have known forever. Looking for a up close and personal tour of Jamaica this company is for you.. I will never forget my time there. THANK YOU RILEY TOURS..💯

We booked a private tour with Kemrod Riley and can report that Kemrod is quick to respond to emails and did everything he agreed to do. We went to Dunn's River, Blue Hole, had a jerk chicken lunch and did a little shopping. We enjoyed our day with Kemrod and the conversation. We intend to tour with Kemrod again next time we are in Jamaica.
