We visited Montego Bay end of May (4 adults) and set up airport transfers and a premium tour to YS Falls/Appleton Rum Factory/Pelican Bar with Alrick (Your Jamaican Tour Guide). We booked everything via Lorette, his wife, who was always very responsive and clear with details and answering any questions I had about the tours. Airport transfer was done by his brother and was great. On time and great attitude. The premium tour was a full day. Alrick was on time, his driving was great considering some roads were not in the best condition and his personality and attitude could not have been any better. He made the entire day entertaining, pointed out interesting points of view, was informative, took us to some great local places to eat and did not rush us but gave us great timing at each tour location. He tries to make the tour more than the standard tour you may get from other companies, and he takes the time to set you up with good guides at each of the sites. We had such a great time with Alrick that we decided to set up another tour with him for a few days later. This was the Negril/Ricks Cafe tour. Another amazing day. The only downside, which obviously is not Alrick's fault, is that we could not see the sunset given the cloudy weather. The next time we return to Jamaica, we will definitely rebook with Alrick and Your Jamaican Tour Guide. The entire experience was amazing! Thanks Alrick!

We just spent the day with Your Jamaican Tour Guide on the Premium South Coast Tour. Our driver picked us up in the hotel lobby, right on time, in a spotless van. We had a great day - safe driving and lots of great conversation. Our timing at each stop was amazing - we avoided the crazy tourist crowds, usually leaving just as they were arriving. It was fantastic.

The premium tour was nice because all of the admissions were included. No hassle for us and we didn't pay a surcharge for this service. Our driver even hooked us up with a fantastic roadside local lunch. My friend remarked that it was the best food she ever ate!

The price per person was comparable to a tour bus, except that we controlled when and where we went and how long we stayed. Much better than being crammed on a bus with 50 other tourists and getting hustled along the way.

I definitely would not hesitate to use Your Jamaican Tour Guide for my next trip to Jamaica!

I’ll start by saying that I don’t review a lot of products or services, but felt compelled in the case of Your Jamaican Tour Guide. It was our first trip to Jamaica and we wanted to see all the touristy stuff. Rather than chancing and potentially missing an opportunity of seeing “items on the list” with tours booked via our hotel, we opted to book them all online prior to the trip. We booked three day long excursions through various companies we found online. All of them had some random issues (late, tour guide wasn’t engaged, bad driver) except for Your Jamaican Tour Guide. They were on time, had a nice vehicle and what really made the experience was our guide, Alrick.

Alrick was fantastic. I can’t say enough about this young man. He was very knowledgable about his country, the places we visited and on a occasion stop to pick some local vegetation. He offered several tips from the best Jerk spice to places to stay when we go back. We truly enjoyed getting to know Alrick, learning about his family and in general the time we spent with him. On our next trip, we will book exclusively with Your Jamaican Tour Guide.

My husband and I have been using Alrick for a few years for transportation from the airport to Negril as well as for tours. We have been going to Jamaica for over 20 years and have used many drivers and tour guides over the years, but since we first used Alrick we haven't worked with anyone else. We look forward to seeing him every year when we go back as he feels like an old friend!

He is the safest driver and drives a comfortable speed, doesn't do a lot of passing like some drivers (sometimes with really close calls LOL!), is fun to talk with, and is always on time picking us up.

In terms of tours, last year we went to Mayfield Falls and the Appleton Rum Factory and had a great day. He was even patient when my husband had to pry me away from the rum tasting!

He also takes us to the store to pick up wine and stops for our first taste of jerk before we leave Montego Bay.

Alrick's the best and we won't use anyone else for our yearly trip to Jamaica!
