“Great day in Jamaica!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We arrived at the Falmouth Port and were greeted by our Guide and driver Christopher who was wonderful! We were traveling with two 14 yr olds and we wanted to experience the blue hole and horseback riding on the beach. Yardie set up a private tour for our family for the day. The girls couldn't decide which activity they liked best, it was a great day and we were back in plenty of time to buy a few trinkets in the market on the way back to the ship. I will definitely use this company again!

“A name you don't forget!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I was first introduced to Yardie Tours in May of 2011. The tour guides were very friendly and informative. We booked with the cruise ship (unaware of Yardie at the time) & climbed the falls. It was an experience to remember and we had a tour of Ochie after we finished the climb. This was another highlight because we stopped for a photo opp and had the opportunity to purchase sugar cane and spices. It was raining at some points and we still had a great time. I am rebooking directly withYardie on my next cruise and I can't wait. They are so laid back and really allow you to enjoy yourself.

“Fun and relaxing down beautiful White River”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We were able to go on this fun tubing tour and the turtle river gardens tour, no problem. Booked with Yardie Tours. www.yardietours.com Actually found this tour on the Skymiles website. Easy to find tour company as we exited our cruise ship. Small tour of maybe 8 people. Safe and well run, our singing river guides kept us all floating together and we were pleasantly surprised by the nice rapids (small) throughout the river. We stopped mid way and had photos, and could purchase beers and beverages.
Its only a 15 minute drive from the cruise ship dock in Ocho Rios to the beginning of the tubing fun. Our tour left about 10:30am. U can safely leave your stuff in the locked van while u tube.Beautiful tropical forest surrounds river. Part shady and relaxing way to spend a morning. Wear water shoes...waterproof camera is good idea too.

“Dunns River and Ocho highlights”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Our driver for Yardie Tours was Christopher. I thought he did a good job overall but could been a bit more energetic. Christopher talked most of the time, he explained the mining of ore from Jamaica and we passed a plant on the way, talked about the limestone in the country, he show us some spices off the side of the road. Beautiful place the Falls no doubt. Water shoes are a must. You are able to hold on and take pictures with your on water camera. After exiting falls it was like amaze through this small village were the locals sell merchandise. They worried the hound out of you. We left there to eat at a jerk restaurant. Christopher got us some samples of the pork was delicious. Ordered wife jerk plate chicken white meat rice, side order of festival bread all was good. Back at ship in time too by one hour.
