I had an awesome experience with Island Transfer & Tours. The service was good and rates are reasonable. Byron is a knowledgeable person, with informative information about Jamaica. He is very pleasant, very professional and always punctual. One can relax and enjoy driving with Byron because he drives safely and cautiously. I will be back in Jamaica soon and Island Transfer & Tours is my mode of transportation with no other than Byron Powell at the control.

Island Transfer and Tours are the best of the best. Service is impeccable and Byron is one of the friendliest guys you would want to meet. Rates are reasonable. He loves to talk about his island and is eager to learn of other countries from his clients. I highly recommend this company ! You won't regret it!!

We started planning a vacation trip to Montego Bay almost 2 months before our arrival. One of the first things we looked at was our pick up at the airport to go to the hotel. We searched on the Internet for different companies that provide this service, and among them it was Island Transfer and Tours, with the lowest price we found. We used the "Contact Us" section of their website in order to confirm the price, and just a few minutes after contacting them, we got the reply confirming the price
After that, we contacted them again about one month later, this time asking for the payment options, and they were very flexible (we could even pay 100% of the price upon arrival, and still get the reservation guaranteed)
At out arrival at the airport, we quickly and easily found our guide Byron Powell, he picked us very close to the exit door of the airport, and he helped us with our baggage (we were 8 people). His minibus was comfortable for everybody, was clean, and had air conditioning. During the short trip to the hotel, he recommended us some other tours we might want to take during our visit, and even recommended us the best days to do them in order to avoid the crowd of people when cruises are in town. We chose the tour to the Dunn rivers' falls in Ocho Rios, and he promised to pick us up at the hotel
On the day set, he was on time and picked us up at the hotel as promised, and on the time agreed. During the trip to Dunn rivers' falls, he even stopped at the Columbus Park in order for us to take some pictures, and also stopped at our request in order to purchase batteries for the camera. During this entire trip, he was explaining us some facts about Jamaica, the places where we were passing, etc., and he answered all of our questions. Once at the entrance of Dunn rivers' falls, he explained us what to do, warned us about the people selling souvenirs and similar (some are very persistent in order to sell you something), and said to us to take our time to do the tour, and that he would wait for us. When we finished our tour, he was waiting for us at the place we agreed, and we said to him that we wanted to have lunch. He recommended us a place to have lunch, and wait for us until we finished. After that, he offered us to go downtown Ocho Rios for shopping. We went there, and also he waited for us to finish shopping. After that, he took us back to the hotel, and scheduled the pickup back to the airport
On the day we took our plane back, he was at the hotel on time, helped us again with the baggage, took us to the airport with no inconveniences and played the last Bob Marley songs on the stereo of his minibus, and helped us again with the baggage once in the airport
I would recommend Island Transfer and Tours for your tours in Montego Bay, and Jamaica in general

I recently took my family on a last minute trip to Jamaica. I have an infant and a 4 year old. I looked up reviews for airport transfers and immediately stumbled upon Island Transfer and Tours. Given the great reviews, I immediately booked them. The reviews are accurate.

Clive met us at the airport, and talked the entire way to the hotel, giving us information about the area and helping us get our bearings. Byron took us back to airport at the end of our trip. He was incredibly friendly and easy to talk to. In both cases, as requested, they had a car seat available for my son.

I've used TripAdvisor for years, but this experience compelled me to create an account and write a review. Please don't hesitate to use this company.
