“A taste of Authentic Jamaica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Instead of all the touristy excursions, we hired Charles a local Taxi and Tour guide and had an amazing experience as we climbed a beautiful waterfall (better than Dunns River), went down the White River on a bamboo raft, experienced not only one blue hole, but EIGHT and more! Give him a call at 876-355-1099. He is reasonable in price, trustworthy and a downright good guy! Tell him John and Shari say hi!

“BEST OF OCHO RIOS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

From the moment we met Richard when he picked us up from the airport, he made us comfortable and relaxed. He had a cooler of cold drinks waiting for us, drove us from Kingston through the mountains with skill. We had a list of things we wanted to do and he helped us figure out when the best times would be. The Blue Hole - was our absolute favorite - DO NOT MISS THIS. Second favorite was the Botanical gardens. At every stop, he was accommodating to OUR schedule, and allowed us as much time as we wanted. He seemed to know everyone and everything about the area. Thanks Richard!

“The best tour guide ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

We just spent a week in Ocho Rios, Jamaica with Richie as our tour guide for the WHOLE WEEK!!! We had so much fun getting to know him and his island. He was very patient, and had great suggestions when asked. We had a long list of things we wanted to do while in Jamaica and Richie did his best to accomadate us. Aside from picking us up and dropping us off at the airport, we visited the Port Antonio area and saw Somerset Falls, Frenchmans Cove, and The Blue Lagoon. We also went to Falmouth to the Glistening Waters boat ride, the water square, the Green Grotto Caves, and the Swamp Safari. Then we did alot of local things. Shaw park, Turtle River Falls Park, Mystic Mountain, Dolphin Cove, White River bamboo rafting, Prospect Plantation, craft markets, duty free shopping, etc. Then he would pick us up on several different evenings and drop us at the restaurants of our choice...and recommended 2 of them that we really liked!! He knows alot about Jamaica and will share with you if you like. He has a great sense of humor and we laughed alot with him! Just ask him about his "4th" language!!! lol You will not be disappointed if you use Richie with Excursions Ocho Rios!! If we ever go back, you can be sure we will be calling Richie!!!

“An Amazing Tour Company!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014

We found Richie through tripadvisor.ca and he lived up and surpassed his reviews! He picked myself and my three friends up right at our hotel (right on time too) and took us for a day full of humour, fun, and adventure. We did Dunn's River Falls and the white water tubing; he took us through the hills of Furn Gully making stops along the way, took us to breathtaking views of ocho rios, an amazing jerk chicken lunch, and other historical. Richie loves his job and has a real sense of genuiness about him; he is full of information about Jamaica-fun and historical and answered all our questions…he really gave us a sense of Jamaica. This has been one of the best tours I have been on and I am well travelled (over 21 countries visited). I would highly recommend Richie to anyone that travels to Ocho Rios or the surrounding area! Thank you Richie for such an amazing day!

“Really Made Our Trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

Found Richie through reviews on line and its all true! Booked on line before we went and made some changes when we were at Couples San Souci resort. No problem - it was our day to do whatever. Richie was prompt with nice van (brought drinks for us) and was a wealth of knowledge on Jamaica. He was so much fun and we did many things and some extras. Well worth the cost (which was very reasonable even for 2 people) and definitely made our first trip to Jamaica great. We handed out his cards at the resort and can only hope others took our advice. No comparison to hotel excursions - we did everything at half the cost but more importantly had a "friend" give us a private tour of his beloved Jamaica. Book him - you won't be sorry!!
