We (me, husband, 3 sons ages 21, 19 and 15) spent a day with Phil and all i can say is that he is AWESOME, i mean really IRIE mon (that there is Jamaica speak) !!

Phil is personalable, fun, entertaining and a great tour guide. He is SIGNIFCANTLY better than tours you can get from your resort and at a MUCH Much better price. Phil took us to river tubing on the White River which is gorgeous. there you will meet a new guide team that Phil knows and trusts, trust me you can trust Phil! then Phil took us to Dunn's Falls for our climb through the waterfalls, he gave us the ins and outs of that expedition, again extremely helpful. Lastly he took us to a delicious local 'jerk' BBQ place in ocho rios where he helped us order, it was delicious and he sat with us as we ate and chatted about the island and his family. Just a wonderful day, my only regret was that we did the Mystic Mountain tour through our resort, i wish he would have done it with Phil, it would have been more fun and cost a lot less. Phil gives your the rich history and interesting facts of Jamaica in a very entertaining style. Phil is #1 mon USE HIM or you'll be sorry you didn't!!!

“Great day with philanthrophist phil to fill”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Phil is truly a national treasure for Jamaica. We had a group of 13 that he kept happy and and laughing the whole time. Phlexable phil allowed us to determine how much time we spent at each stop. His connections saved us atleast 45 minutes of waiting time, at various places. At the end of our cruise, which was july 14-21 on the allure of the seas,our group sat around a table, and every one was asked what the best part was. Atleast half said the tubing we did with phil. Dont miss that part! We are returning to jamaica in july of 2014 for a wedding at Sandels in ocho rios, and plan on using phil again.

“Don't Miss "Jamaica Phil" !!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Our party of 4 spent the day with Phil & it was excellent! He told us that he wanted us to see what is was like to truly be Jamaican for a day & we did. He taught us about the local customs, plants, history, etc. His transportation (van) was comfortable & clean. We drove to Ocho Rios & climbed the falls. Because Phil is so well liked with the locals, we went straight to the front of the line & never had to wait. Next, we stopped for lunch & enjoyed delicious jerk chicken & ribs. Our last stop of the day was a beautiful spot on the beach where we relaxed & enjoyed the scenery before we headed back to our port. Phil is friendly, knowledgeable, & professional. We will definitely use him again, & I recommend him without hesitation! Don't miss "Jamaica Phil" !!!

“Phil and Tami: Excellence”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This is the second time we've used Phil Lafayette's Tour company, and I have only great things to say about his operation. He and his crew are thoroughly competent and professional, but that's only the beginning. We had the good fortune to have his daughter Tami as a guide, and we not only had a wonderful tour of Dunn's River Falls, Mammee Beach, and Scotchie's jerk shack – we felt as if we were with a close friend. We talked about a great many things and went home with warm memories. Thanks Phil and Tami!!!
