Excursions from the Riu Ocho Rios?

Is there a way to find out what the name of the travel group is that runs excursions from the Riu Ocho Rios? I'd also like to find out what they offer before we go. Suggestions?? I'm having a tough time finding this information anywhere.

Any tour company can pick you up from the RUi and most of the time the ones that the Hotel offer will be more pricey. Check out Peat Taylor Tours. After many years trying others we use only this great family when in Ochi. They have so many hookups and spots not heavliy travlled as well as the normel tours www.ochoriosjamaicatours.com for all the info and if you need any additional info please feel free to contact me. Have a great trip!!!

Also keep in mind that from Riu Ocho Rios, you could pretty much walk to Dolphin Cove, Mystic Mountain and Dunn's River Falls. It might be cheaper to just get a cab there...

it takes quite a while to walk to mystic mountains from riu ocho rios, and under the sun it is not so nice..maybe 20 minutes walk..

in front of the riu gate there are a lot of local taxis and you will pay only one us to go to the falls,to dolphin cove or mystic mountains..taking them is totally secure, they are on their official route from st anns bay to ocho rios, and it takes only a couple minutes to the reggae trail, which is the kind of walk they set up on the side of the sea for visitors to go from ocho rios to all these attractions..the reggae trail goes from island village to dunn s river falls, but not further..

Give the blue mountain bike tour a try. Was the best excursion we did the whole time. You will never see this part of Jamaica if you dont do it. So much fun. You get 5% off if you book online.

Not to mention, all you do is coast downhill. It was like 10 miles on a bike. I maybe peddled like 100 feet of that.
