We had the pleasure to return to Ocho Rios, Jamaica on December 19, 2012. I contacted Pete Taylor tour by e-mail to let them know that we would be returning to the Island on a cruise. Having been there before we did not care to do the falls again. We wanted a relaxing day private day to site see and eat some amazing jerk. We got both! Peat's son Oneill was again our guide for the day. Oneill is extremely knowledgeable about the local floral and fauna, reaching out of the van window and plucking flowers, and fruits from the trees. He passed around several items for us to taste and smell, they each came with a story of what they are and how they can be used for holistic medicine. We enjoyed a great day beginning at the dock, sight seeing and an amazing jerk pork & festival bread lunch! We will definitely call them if you return. Lastly they will be happy to stop any time you need or want to.

Wow! My family, me, boyfriend and our toddler, booked our tours through Peat Taylor tours and it was the best decision I could have made! Peat Jr. Was our tour guide and he was amazing! First day we went to Dolphin Cove. Second day we went to Bob Marley and Nine Mile. Third day we went to Blue Hole and River tubing. On our excursions our son was throwing a tantrum in the car and he sung to him and immediately stopped crying. He was so knowledgeable and we felt extremely safe! One nice thing was they provided a car seat as most tours don't. Wouldn't go with any other tours but Peat Taylor Tours :)

Peat and his son picked us up from the Carnival Valor dock with no problems. It was good we started within 30 minutes of the ship docking because when we left we saw how long the lines had become. The drive was pleasant and all the stories you hear about the falls are true. Buy your own water shoes at Walmart for $4.99 before the trip and be prepared to toss them afterwards. The falls will eat them up. The locals do hawk their stuff at the end but you can just say no. However, that is the place to get Dunns River merchandise. Dont expect to get a "I climbed the Falls" t-shirt near the boat. Anyway, afterwards they drove us to a private beach which was pretty dull and boring. No chairs, nothing to do. We stayed about 90 minutes and were happy to get back. With everything, we were still back on board in time for a late lunch. Overall, a good trip for the $45. Make sure to point out kids were only $40 because they tried to charge all of us on the excursion full price at the end.

Met Oneill, Peat Taylor's son at the port. He could not have been more accommodating. He set us up with Cliffton as our guide to the Blue Hole. It was a great experience, the place was magnificent. We were treated great by Omar who oversaw our tour of the Blue Hole. I can't say enough about Cliffton, who stayed by our side the entire time. Great service and a great price. Had a wonderful time and highly recommend seeing the Blue Hole when in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

Peat and his son picked us up from Sangster Airport on time. Our flight had been changed and he was very accommodating. He took us to our resort in Ocho Rios and provided us with friendly service, singing and an overview of the history of Jamaica and its culture. We found Peat Taylor to be prompt, courteous, friendly and reliable. We would use him again and recommend his services.
