“Hands down the best transfer company in Jamaica!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Anyone flying into Montego Bay needs to call Byron!! We stayed in Lucea, about 40 minutes from the airport and booked the company based solely on the reviews on tripadvisor. Am I ever glad that I did! I emailed the company before booking to confirm when I should book our pick up for an early flight out and received very prompt helpful responses. When we flew into Montego bay our flight arrived 35 minutes early and we were through customs quickly so I expected to wait, but Byron was already there for us and was very friendly and welcoming. My husband and I expected to be sharing the trip since the price was the same as the coach transfers I had looked into, so we were thrilled to find that we had our very own van (very clean, in great working order) and didn't have to wait for other travellers. The drive was great - Byron chatted easily and gave us lots of information about the island and the culture, and the time flew by. We talked about the possibility of taking a tour off the resort and he made several great suggestions and listed itineraries based on our interests, but we never felt sales pressure. In the end we didn't get a chance to book any excursions, but if we had we would have called Byron, no question. We called to confirm our pick up time the day before our flight (we had talked about changing it on the drive to the resort) and Byron arrived promptly bright and early the next day. Had another great ride back to the airport in a different (equally clean and well maintained) van. We've been back 2 days and I've already recommended the company to friends planning a trip for the fall, and I would confidently recommend their service to anyone - you won't be disappointed, they have earned every one of these 5/5 reviews!!!

“Better than we could've imagined!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

We took our first trip to Jamaica and were hesitant about what service we'd receive once we arrived. The entire process, from booking and payment, to the friendly service on our roundtrip airport transfers was perfect. They had the best price, an individual car in great condition with A/C, and our drivers (Delroy and Byron) drove safely, and told us all about the sights, and answered all of our questions.

I wouldn't book anything else, regardless of price, now that I've experienced the top-notch service and friendly attitude of my friends at IT&T - a big shout out to Delroy and Byron!!

“Byron is absolutely amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We had a short amount of time in Jamaica. Lucky for us, Byron Powell was our tour guide! He brought us to MANy places including the falls, zip lining and the famous landmarks, plus we ate! He was very knowledgable and truly wanted us to learn some of the culture. I could have never imagined how great my trip could be in such a short amount of time. We will be coming back and most certainly having Byron be our tour guide!

“Best Tour Guide in Jamiaca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

On our recent trip to Jamaica we hired Byron Powell from Island Transfer for an independent tour. We had the greatest time! Byron shared his wealth of knowledge about his Country Jamaica and about Bob Marley.
We took in several attractions which he recommended and afterward we visited a local jerk chicken restaurant (which was really the highlight of the tour).
Byron is a very knowledgeable and professional guide who is very proficient in english and the local dialect.
If you have the opportunity to visit Jamiaca I would highly recommend Byron, you won't be disapointed. He can be reached through Island Transfers or at 876-391-4914. Yeah mon.

“Jamaica's Finest Tour & Transfer Company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

We learned about Island Transfer & Tours after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. After some research and comparison we decided on Island Transfer & Tours to take us from the airport to Braco Village Resort & Spa.
Their web site is easy & intuitive to arrange the transfer. http://www.itransfertourist.com/
After booking the reservation we received an immediate acknowledgment from Bryon. A week before our trip we decided that we would like a private tour to Montego Bay & Negril. We sent an email to Byron with a few ideas of what we would like to see & do and he responded back with a customized tour for the 2 of us.
On the day of arrival at the airport, Island Transfer & Tours were easy to find with their smiling faces and a nice welcome. We were a bit upset that the airline had lost our luggage on a direct flight, but Byron & Owen put us at ease by saying “No Problem, Mon… the luggage will show up and be delivered to your hotel”. While driving us to the resort Byron was very conversational pointing out landmarks & talking about the island.
The best day of our trip was the private tour to Montego Bay & Negril. Owen arrived at our resort promptly at 8:30 am. As we made our way to Montego Bay, Owen gave us more history & information about the island.
We stopped for a little shopping & then to Montego Bay where we toured the city and the straw markets. We stopped at a local elementary school to watch their sports day activities. We stopped at the edge of the Tryall Club to see the remains of the old sugar mill, where a water wheel used to grind the sugar cane.
On the way to Negril we stopped at a road side grill for some local jerk pork – which was absolutely fabulous. We tried the natural juice made with local island fruit & vegetables - it was really good & healthy; we learned so much about their culture on the trip.
In Negril we went to Margaretville; Owen always made sure that we were safe & well taken care of. Owen became our personal photographer for the day - he had us pose & setup the shots perfectly. (Some of the best vacation pictures we have!). Also while in Negril we went to Ricks Café – it wasn’t very busy that day which made it nice. We got to see some of the divers & enjoy drinks at the bar. On the return from Negril we stopped in Montego Bay for Jamaican patties at a local restaurant; they were delicious. Owen was the perfect tour guide and we really got to know him as a friend. Also, throughout the day Byron followed up with Owen & us to make sure that everything was going okay & that we were having a good time.
Sadly, the trip had to come to an end; Byron was on time to pick us up for the transfer to the airport.
Overall, Island Transfer & Tours exceeded our expectations. Byron & Owen were very courteous, friendly and strived to provide the very best customer service. We would not hesitate to use them for our next trip & highly recommend them!
