We booked with Alrick Allen, Owner of Your Jamaican Tour Guide.com after reading several tripadvisor forums on sightseeing and drivers. All arrangements were made seamlessly through email. In fact, Alrick accommodated our request to change the type of tour just days beforehand.-We did keep the same date – Alrick picked us promptly from the lobby of our hotel, at the specified time, for the Tasting Tour. His van was modern and the perfect size for a private tour. He had a cooler of beverages on hand, including my favorite when in Jamaica –Ting.
In addition to taking us around to various eateries and fruit stands, Alrick pointed our several highlights in the area of Montego Bay. At each stop Alrick asked us what we would like to sample and would proceed to order for us. This took the stress out of waiting in line and trying to figure out the currency. He is clearly known and respected at each place we visited.
My husband had a special request for King Fish, a local fish that is difficult to get in the states. Alrick made several calls to find a restaurant that would prepare it for him. After that didn’t pan out, Alrick drove us to the local fishermen to see if any were available for purchase. My husband was in luck, as one guy just caught one earlier that day. The hotel prepared it for him just as he liked.
We are very pleased with our experience and plan to contact Your Jamaican Tour Guide on our next trip to Jamaica. Alrick is very personable and makes the trip enjoyable.
