“Falmouth to Ocho-Rios”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Island Boy Tours did a fantastic job transporting our group of 11 plus a baby. Our guide Clifton took us to Dunn's River Falls, then picked us up and took us for some shopping and red stripes, then to lunch for some jerk chicken and more red stripes, and finally back to the cruise port. He was very knowledgable and was a great guide. I would recommend them to anyone looking to do a tour in Jamaica. The cruise ship wanted $70 while we paid $40 for transport and entrance to Dunn's River Falls, saved us a boatload!

“Wild Thing Catamaran Cruise”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We went on the Wild Thing Catamaran Cruise in Negril, that went to Rick's Cafe. As someone who's been going to Jamaica with my family since I was small - AND someone who's been on the Wild Thing cruise before (about 7 or 8 years ago), I was very disappointed with the cruise itself. The energy level of the crew was low - no one even danced! & all of the visitors on the cruise just sat around the whole time. Not at all the fun party time that I remember from 8 years ago, where everyone was up & dancing around, having a blast to authentic reggae music (even the music was awful on this one...).
One perk of Island Boy Tours as a company though was the ease of booking the trip & getting there. We received confirmation calls & emails after booking online & our driver was AMAZING. Picking us up right at our hotel lobby, telling us all about the scenery we were passing on the way to Negril & even stopping at a jerk chicken place on the way home because we wanted to try it!
Overall experience was good - because of the Island Boys external staff, but the cruise itself was a major let down. With so many catamaran cruises to choose from, I'm sad to say what I held as my 'all time favorite' before this year, would likely not be my first choice again.

Thank you so much for providing us with feedback about your Wild Thing catamaran experience and your tour operator Clifton. He will be very pleased to read your review. I am sorry that the Wild Thing cruise did not live up to your expectations.

Hopefully this was not your last trip to Jamaica so be sure to check out the other catamaran cruise we offer in Ocho Rios that goes to Dunn’s River Falls. I did that cruise last May for my birthday and had an awesome time!

“Tour to Dunn River Falls and Dolphin Cove......Negril tour.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Island Boy Tours was amazing from start to finish. I am a procrastinator. I actually contacted Island Boy tours very early in the planning stages and Janique replyed back very quickly and was extremly helpful and accomdating in getting exactly what I wanted put into a package. With my procrastinating habits, I of course didn't book any tours. It came time to leave for the airport and I still had no printed confirmation. We were on the road to the airport on SUnday and Janique called me on her personal time and took care of everything. She was amazing. She said not to worry that I didn't have a printed confirmation, she would take care of us.

She emailed the confirmation that day with all the information and our driver.

The day of our tour (Tuesday) Clifton was at our hotel ready to pick us up. He was the most friendly Jamaican ever!!!! He made us feel so welcome and we became instant friends. On the drive he told us so much about the island. He was such a joy.

At the resort we decided to take a different tour. We call Clifton directly and he was so professional. He worked with us and Island Boy tours and we set up the tour to Negril on Sunday. WELL, as you all know when you are on vacation you forget which day it is. On the first tour, we were talking about what we do on our free time. It didn't even hit me until we were on the bus that Clifton had given up his favorite football day off to accommodate us for our trip. I truly think he was so happy to do it. Again he was HOOT! We so enjoyed him.

He had a cooler of refreshments both trips and of course it was emptied!

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH AND I WILL RECOMMEND YOUR TOUR GROUP TO ANYONE I KNOW THAT IS GOING TO JAMAICA.

AWESOME.AWESOME.AWESOME

“Very GREAT Trip to Nine Miles - Bob Marley in Jamaica - Private Tour”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The tour was very good. Our driver picked us up in the morning and took us directly to nine miles so that we had time to visit the bob marley tour. Later we went to eat something typical jamaican and we made a few stops on the way back to montego bay. wherever we wanted to make a short stop, eg for taking pictures or whatever, the driver made a short stop. Island Boy Tours is very professional and tries to make your vacation as great as it can be! Also the driver told us very interesting things about the island and the culture. When we come again we will definitely book another tour with this great company!

“Our wonderful vacation in the beautiful island of Jamaica.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

To the owners and workers of the Island Boy tour. I Just want to say thank u all for making our family vacations a fun filled and excited one. Thanks for all the tips on where to go and what to do.our visit to mystic mountain was super fun, the Cool Runnings boat ride was excellent. It was full of excitement and activities, such as goin to the famous Duns River Fall, stopping and snorkeling and nothing but dancing to some reggae music and eating snd drinking on the way back. But the best part of our vacation was that it was stress free because we had you guys from Island Boy Tour to arranged and book all reservations for our activities and to pick us up and drop us off to wherever we wanted to go. Your transportation services was terrific. The drivers were very polite and nice, the buses were very nice and clean and equipped with A/C . Thank u guys for helping us have a wonderful vacation in Jamaica. We look forward to use u again.
