“A Must :)”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

This experience absolutely made our holiday to Jamaica. Nothing was to much to ask & even when we changed our minds on what we wanted to do they were more than accomodating. Alrick has so much knowledge and knows so many people it really felt that we had a glimpse of the true Jamaica as well as the tourist attractions. Also he went out of his way to get us some duct tape as a suitcase has been damaged by the airline and we need to strap it up to get home. What a brilliant ethos and company for which we would all highly recommend :)

“Alrick you made it a great tour day!!!”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

Alrick - just sitting here looking at our pictures. What a great trip to Jamaica. We were picked up at the airport by Kissan and delivered to our resort, the car was clean and comfortable, even a couple Cold Red Stripes to put us in the vacation mood. Lots of information along the way about Jamaica. Alrick picked us up early a couple days later and we toured the South Coast. He talked and talked and made us laugh. We could never have driven that route on our own. He took us to YS falls and led us to our own private tour, there was no one else there. The best pictures, He waited patiently for us and we never felt rushed. We stopped along the way and had lunch on the roadside in a little village. Had the joy of eating with a 3 year old girl - adorable. We ventured onto Appleton Rum Estate, were we toured and sampled some great rum. He then whisked us off to a small town, to catch a boat ride out to the Pelican Bar - which was true local Jamaica. He had a way of leading us thoughout our tour without us even asking. He was a true gem!!! When we got back to the resort, we passed his card onto other tourist. Thank you again Alrick, you made it the best trip possible. I have to ask again - was that croc really real????? haha!!!!

“The Best Way to Experience the Island Jamaica is with someone who knows it well!!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Our experience with Your Jamaican Tour Guide and our local Guide, Kissan made our visit to Jamaica memorable and convenient. We scheduled a single full day tour through Alrick to see the South Coast, YS Falls for zip-lining, Black River and a trip out to Pelican Bar via boat ride. Kissan picked us up at our resort in Montego Bay and made us feel welcome. He never missed the opportunity to let us see the real Jamaica. We had a local meal at "the border" (roadside) of fish, bammy and my teenager's new favorite "Ting". We quickly learned that there was no better way to actually experience this beautiful island than with someone who lives there. We were never hurried and with every request big or small, Kissan answered with "No Problem". We booked another day, to see the beauty of Negril's 7 mile beach where Kissan helped us locate a wave runner on this breathtaking strip of sand, followed by the sunset & cliff diver's (in the rain) at Rick's café. It was a perfect day with a recommended stop by Kissan in beautiful Lucea to see Fort Charlotte a little unknown spot off the beaten path. We felt like we were with an old friend who was sharing the history his town and island with us. It took only a day back on our resort at the Ritz Carlton to miss the real Jamaica and called back to book a 3rd day with Kissan at the request of my teenage son. We were off to Ocho Rios for Waterfall climbing, bobsledding and an incredible nighttime swim in the Luminous Lagoon. Another awesome day. During our time with Kissan we sampled local fruits such as Jamaican apples, star apples and sugar cane from road side vendors, met the warm people of Jamaica,hand fed hummingbirds at the bird sanctuary and took in Columbus's Discovery Cove. Truly unforgettable experiences. Tips: the roads in Jamaica can be difficult to manage (we are from the US) such as the bird sanctuary and through the mountains, having a trusted guide to drive is important. We found the rates were more than competitive and pays for itself over again, resorts push the cattle car tour buses for similar rates, but you miss out on the personal attention and freedom to stop along the way like I mentioned we were never hurried, always welcomed and saw more than most tourist ever do. Thank you Kissan and YJTG!!! My son (Jacob)is already talking about returning and can't wait to call on our new friend, Kissan!

“Professional, Pleasant, and Fun! You Can Relax with Alrick!”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Our flight took longer than expected, we had to de-ice which got us there 1/2 hour late. We arrive at the Airport just to see a line of about 150 people ahead of us to get through customs, to top things off the fire alarm goes off and doesn't stop! By the time we actually got outside, there was someone holding up a sign for us and along came Alrick... He had us laughing in about 5 minutes and it became a great start to our vacation. His vehicle is clean and well maintained and he is a safe driver (which is a challenge on it's own in Jamaica!). His rates are great, if not the best around.

We had aranged Alrick for an all day booking a few days into our vacation. He set up our Dune Buggy excursion and then took us into Montego Bay for an afternoon of shopping (we took a little side trip to a local restaurant for jerk chicken, it was great). Alrick was always looking out for us, I could always see him out of the corner of my eye keeping an eye on us and just making sure we were having a good time. You can shop at your own pace, have a pint or two, shop again... The resorts offer shopping trips but they take you to certain places and you have X amount of minutes before your back on the bus.

It was my birthday a few days later, I guess we mentionned it at one point because he stopped by the resort to say "Happy Birthday"! Certainly "above and beyond" on the client service thing...

We booked him to take us back to the airport, it was like saying goodbye to a good friend.

It is guaranteed that we will book him again when we go back. This was out third time in Jamaica and this was the best trip because of "Your Jamaican Tour Guide"!

“Will hire Alrick again!!”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

We have hired Alrick Allen twice now and have been so pleased! He is very responsive via email during the planning process and will help fine tune plans if needed. He is very good about listening to the kind of experience you would like to have so be sure to let him know what you want. He will say "no problem mon"!!
