We had a great experience with Nicole, our guide, on the horseback riding and trek to dunns river. Luckily it was low season so we ended up with a private tour. She took us around to see some of the "real Jamaica" on the way to start our excursion. The horses at Hooves are well cared for and our guide was fantastic, even taking my husband and me off the beaten path to explain the local flora. Riding in the ocean is an incredible experience and was a highlight of the trip! When we got to the Falls, Nicole walked us all the way in and got us set up with a private guide (amazing!), so we got to hike the falls without having to deal with any other people in the long human chains. We went up different paths and our guide took a ton of great photos for us on the hike up. She even offered to drive us to other sites or shopping afterwards. Truly made us feel like VIPs!

Jamaica perhaps my least favorite stop while on a cruise, on this trip the ship was stopping in Falmouth, I made contact with Kevin of yardie tours and he was not short of professional and accommodating. I booked the "river boarding" trip along with 9 others, Everything was simply perfect from meeting us at the pier to the adventure to dropping us off. The lady driver we had was great and very safety conscious and willing to stop whenever. I have not found this type of service usually found in Jamaica, great company.

Can’t say enough on the way the company caters to the customer. Our ship was 1 hour late and Yardley Tours was waiting. As it turned out we were the only two on this tour. Our guide Nicole said we had the while island to ourselves and off we went. She was great. She gave us recommendations and we ran with that. I have to say that she made this tour for us an experience we will never forget. From Dennis the Spice Man, Carl Black the coffee man and the children at the school. We also went to a open air market which was great. Toured the countryside with laughter all the way. Still telling the story to my friends about Dennis the Spice Man. Thanks Nicole. Mike And Samone

Recently returned from Ocho Rios, Jamaica where we spent a week at an all inclusive. Each day we took an excursion to local attractions, three of the four guided by Yardie Tours. All three days with Yardi we had the same driver, Christopher,and he made the vacation an unqualified success. He was prompt, courteous, friendly and very knowledgable. We had pre-selected the locations but he went out of his way to tell us about the area, the people, the history and to answer all our questions. He made stops along the way to show us scenery, teach us about local flora, and describe the day to day life of native Jamaicans. We made no unsceduled stops at "tourist traps" but Christopher did make sure we experienced the local flavor. He made us comfortable, treated us to Jamaican hospitality and made us feel like we were getting our money's worth. In short,his focus was our experience. I highly recommend Yardi and even more strongly recommend you request Chirstopher.

Had a wonderful email experience with Kevin who was very professional and proficient! When we arrived in Jamaica, he sent a driver by the name of Earl, who was just as nice, professional and accommodating. I would highly recommend Yardie tours and plan to use them every time we visit Jamaica. A very pleasurable experience. Thank you!
