He was an awesome driver, very flexible, and professional. He shared some Jamaican history along the way and made some suggestions for things we should try. He was very... More

Our villa concierge hired Peat for us to take us to Blue Hole. Peat was on time and professional and is a wealth of knowledge of the area. He found us the best guides for Blue Hole (Ellis and Wayne) and gave us a great recommendation for lunch. We hope to get Peat again for our next adventure.

He told us a lot about Jamaica, the areas we were traveling through, and the Jamaican culture. He even gave us a brief overview of how Patwa (the local dialect/language) works. The whole ride was...
