We arranged for a private tour to the Appleton Estate rum tour, the YS Falls and Floyd’s Pelican Bar. From the very first enquiry to the day of the trip itself, Sana was very prompt at replying to any queries we had. She even managed to change the date of our tour as 2 of our activities were closed on the day that our original trip was planned.
On the day, we were picked up at our hotel at the agreed time by our driver for the day - Mr T. From the very first minute to the return to the hotel, he commented on any points of interest on our journey to our first attraction. He was an excellent driver and we felt safe at all times (even on some of the pothole filled, windy roads in the mountainous area).
I would thoroughly recommend booking with this company as they ticked all boxes from start to finish.

I contacted Marvyn Paradise tours two weeks before my trip and set up a private tour to Dunn River Falls. We arrived on August 18th to Falmouth Jamaica, our cruise ship arrival time was incorrect from what was listed on the itinerary. I spoke to Mr.Marvyn, and advise we arrived a hour earlier and he immediately took the proper actions to ensure we had a driver. Tyrone was our driver and we are so happy that he was our driver. He was very informative, professional and he instantly felt like he was part of our family. It like we knew him forever. Dunn river falls was beautiful and we had so much fun. We arrived at a good time because there was not much Tours groups at the time. After that, we went to eat at Scotchies and we ask Tyrone to join us. Our lunchtime was filled with laughter. Tyrone is such an amazing person and did an outstanding job of keeping us informed about Jamaica. My children were very sad when we inform them that we were leaving Jamaica and Tyrone couldn't come with us, because they thought he was their uncle. When we got to the boat, we were very sad because we miss Tyrone. We will always be booking with Marvyn Paradise tours and hoping that each time our tours will be with Tyrone. I highly recommend this company to book your tours with. I am forever grateful for them and our highlight of our trip was Jamaica. Thank you!

If you are looking to have an amazing time in Jamaica and have a company that really cares about your experience and takes care of everything this is by far the best company. We have used them twice in two separate vacations and both times were super impressed with the professionalism. We loved it. Told many of my friends to use them and they had the same experience as we did. Amazing. Will def use them again for future vacations as well

We had rented a 12 passengers van with drive from the Marvyn's tour. Van was in very good condition and driver Sean was very nice. Always cam half an hour before the given time and had very good knowledge reagarding the Ocho Rio area. I would strongly recommend to hire Marvyn's paradise tour if you are in Ocho Rio or Montego bay area

I had read reviews before our trip about excursions from the Falmouth Jamaica port and knew we needed to find another solution other than the RC excursions. I was happy to find Marvyn’s Paradise Tours and they did live up to their good reputation. It was amazing to have a private vehicle to Blue Hole and our driver Kenneth really did take care of us like we were his own. Marvyn had arranged for us to have professional and kind tour guides at each location. Our river guide Dwight and his son sang songs and kept us safe as we floated down the river. Kamar our guide at Blue Hole took pictures for our family as we jumped and waded through the water.
He was kind and did an excellent job advocating for us at the busy tourist site.

Due to a turned over truck, we were in traffic for more than 2 hours on our way back to the port. Fortunately, we had discussed our concern about getting back to the ship with Kenneth and we decided to skip the lunch/shopping portion of our trip to go straight back to the boat. We made it back 15 minutes before our ship was supposed to leave. We watched for the next 1-1/2 hrs as other passengers made their way back to the ship and began to hear stories of other excursion companies that had huge issues that morning with late pickup or last minute cancellations. Many passengers made it back late to the boat due to the accident.On a side note, we should have brought more cash for tipping! Also, it is a long drive to the locations, it would been good if we had researched and done something closer to the port for less stress. It would be interesting to ask Marvyn about this idea, he might have some great local ideas. However, Blue hole was amazing and a once in a lifetime experience, it was just stressful getting back to the boat.

We were really thankful we found Marvyn’s tours! Thank you Marvyn, Kenneth, Dwight and Kamar for showing us an amazing time on the island!

My friends and I booked Marvyn's for our tour at the last minute since we were coming in for our carnival cruise on 11/17/22. The tour was amazing, my friends wanted to do the bamboo rafting and I wanted a your of the city. Our tour guide Daini made it all worth while after dropping my friends off he took me to see so many beautiful sites in "Ocho" I was able to go through the fern gully and he told me all about it. He took me to the point which overlooks the whole island and it was nothing but amazing. He also stopped me on the side of the road where there was a vendor selling cooking spices and fresh fruits and vegetables. Daini then went and pick my friends back up and we ended our tour with a trip to the beautiful beach. If you are looking for a company to book a tour with while in Ocho's Rios I highly recommend this company and asked for Cool Daini to be your tour guide.

Marvyn was so patient and accommodating, he took time to explain things to us and even gave us great advice which we followed and it worked out wonderfully because we were so blessed to have Sean as our driver. If you come to Jamaica you NEED to have Sean drive you....Sean picked us up from their airport and dropped us off he took us to all of our activities. He knows the roads he understands the traffic patterns and is responsible safe and protective. When you step into the van with Sean just know you are in great hands and the van is well taken care of it was clean for each day of our trip. Safety is a Top priority for Sean. Sean was our driver for our entire stay and he was always transparent and willing to go the extra mile with out hesitation. It's almost like he specializes in customer service. At some point in our trip Sean had become like family we shared stories told jokes and stopped off for some water coconuts in the country. Sean was so helpful and had a great report with the guides on each activity we did we never had to worry about anything because Sean had our back and made sure we got what we payed for . Sean made sure that each and everyone in the van was happy down to the last minute KFC and juici patty runs. We trusted his judgment when we went to in town to shop he was so knowledgeable as he showed us around and always had a smile on his face and was patient the entire day. We definitely made the right decision to go with Marvyn and Sean they aim to please and are kind people.... best service We've received, ever! We will definitely be back and when we do we'll call Marvyn and his crew.

Visit to Sandals in Jamaica, Ocho Rios in July 2021 .

My wife and I were back and forth on what excursions we wanted to do so we gave Marvyn a call. He assured us that he would be able to accommodate all we wanted to do which was Blue Hole, Dunns Falls, White River Tubing, ATV, and Horseback. Marvyn scheduled 3 events one day and 2 on another day to make the most efficient use of time.

We were met by our private driver, Shawn, at our hotel right on time at 9 am. He was courteous and provided us stories as we drove to each excursion. Very great experience! Marvyn's team set up the times and purchased all the necessary tickets for us, making it a hassle free trip, all we had to do was get out of the car and enjoy our trip. Also, our personal belongings were dry and safe as they stayed with our driver, Shawn. The best thing was the privacy that was provided by Marvyn with having our own driver and then taking us bright and early to the spots we chose that allowed us to experience those excursions in a more private setting before the large crowds came

I highly suggest Marvyn's Tours when booking any of your excursions in Jamaica. Additionally, he allowed us to pay via paypal as well which was nice to not have to carry lots of cash around.

Thanks Marvyn!

Our driver Gregory white picked us up at the sandals ochi on time. His car was clean and spacious. While driving us to the blue hole he educated us while pointing out things that pertained to the region. At each destination (blue hole, white river tubing and scotches) he took care of us buying our tickets for passage. I would highly recommend Marvyn’s tours to anyone who comes to Jamaica. It’s a beautiful island with amazing people. You can’t go wrong with Marvyn’s.

Sean our driver was excellent. Easy going, polite, knowledgeable and a safe driver. Private party of 4 was well worth the reasonable cost. He did all he could to make our day memorable and enjoyable. You can tell he loves his job, family and country. We did Fern Gulley, Dunns Falls, ziplining and local food. Would highly recommend and would use again if back in Jamaica. Sana was fast in responding to emails and helpful in planning our day.
