Reviewed October 16, 2012

Couldn't recommend Javia (and Maeva Shaw tours) highly enough - he is AWESOME! We had him for the day and he took us to great places, we were not hassled, we shopped in peace. It was wonderful. Comfortable, air conditioned van ... great.

We're coming back to stay for 10 days next year and will be doing all our sightseeing with Jaiva of Knowjamaica (Maeva Shaw) Tours.

“No problem!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We were on the carnival destiny this past week and stopped in Jamaica. I pre-booked my tour with know Jamaica tours. After an email confirming our tour we left for our cruise. As soon as we docked in Jamaica we got off and asked for marva shaw. We were pointed in the right direction. Marva knew me by name which put me at ease knowing I was in the right spot! We went with her son Javia to Dunns river falls and Margaritaville. We had no troubles and will definently use this company again!

“The only way to go!!!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

we just returned from a two week trip to Jamaica. We have been there 9 times now and this is by far the best tour company available. They will take you to places that are not even offered at the resort tour desk. These places are amazing ,Reach Falls,Sommerset Falls,One Love Falls,fresh grilled conch on the side of the road.Javia also set us up with a seafood dinner at a local fishing village,it was incredible.Trips are done at your pace not there's ,and they don't rush you.They are there for you and will take you wherever you want to go and show you places you will never see otherwise.Do yourself a favor and use knowjamaica as your tour company.They are very reliable and very safe NO WORRIES MON

“Javia Rocks”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We just returned from another Great Jamaica tour with KnowJamaica. Our first stop on our Carnival cruise, and the best stop of all. Marva and Javia can't be beat. This is our 2nd time in Jamaica on a different side of the island and it was more beautiful than the first. I didn't think that was possible, they are the best most well informed tour guides we have ever used on any of our many stops. Javia took us shopping, sightseeing, and then to the beech with a stop to eat some jerk with lots of local sides dishes in the middle. If you want to see the real Jamaica there is only 1 place to call KnowJamaica Tours. Simply the Best. Ya Mon!

Thank you J

Drove to Fort Lauderdale Florida and picked up the cruise ship "Carnival Freedom" for the trip to Ocho Rios Jamica. The trip on the ship was fantastic and arrival to Jamica was on time. We only had time to take one tour and decided to take the shopping tour. We boarded the bus for the grand 4 hour tour and had a great tour guide. We stopped and many shopping sites and the guide and bus driver provided many barganing hints --- that really worked. "Never pay the first price" - We ended up paying about 1/4 of the asking price and everyone seemed to be happy with the deals. The bus ride was well worth the price - the street were narrow with two vehicles able to pass without breaking the mirrors. Interesting items - with T-shirts seeming to be the big buy. Many of us purchased wood carvings and pottery. Great tour with no language barrier - as English is the native language, Great place to visit and will return with the hopes of more time to visit the falls and ride the bob sled. Those who took the bob-sled / water fall trip could not stop talking about experience. Next visit will be to climb the falls and ride th bob-sled down the falls.
