“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I e-mailed Peat Taylor while we were in Jamaica and he was able to set something up with us for the very next day. Very accommodating! Ainsworth picked us up from our hotel and our first stop was the Irie Blue Hole. On the way through the hills to get there, Ainsworth stopped the van to get out and pick leaves off of different trees to smell them. One smelled like cloves and cinnamon, and the other was lemon grass. Once to the Blue Hole Ainsworth stayed close, making us feel safe. The Blue Hole was awesome (see review). Next stop Dunn's river Falls. We decided to go up the falls "freestyle" meaning no guide. Along the way Ainsworth walked up the side of the falls and took photos of us. After leaving Dunn's River Falls we went shopping, and to a local favorite,Scotchies, for lunch. Great food! By the end of our day Ainsworth felt like family. It was a nice touch hearing about the Jamaican culture from him during our tour. I highly recommend Peat Taylor tours, as I will definitely be calling him the next time we go back to Jamaica. Thanks for the great and memorable day Ainsworth!

“Had a great time!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We just returned from our cruise on the Carnival Freedom and a Peat Taylor tour in Ocho Rios. We had a great time! We were taken to Dunn River Falls and the Irie Blue Hole. The Blue Hole is something you don't want to miss in Ocho Rios. Between Dunn River and the Blue Hole Peat took us to some shops in Ocho Rios where we were able to purchase rum and coffee and then he stopped and got us some lunch at a local place before we headed to the Blue Hole. We had a great time and will do this again the next time we are in Ocho Risos.

“Private Tour”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We just returned from a cruise where we stopped in Ocho Rios Jamaica. We had booked a private tour with Peat Taylor Tours and it was awesome! We didnt have enough time to do everything but (Re)Peat gave us a wonderful tour! We felt safe and the van was super clean. Thanks Peat and son for showing us your home and making our visit extra special! Oh, and thank you so much for finding me some Diet Pepsi to take back on the ship!

Carnival wanted to charge $130pp for a Horseback Ride/Dunn's River Falls excursion. My husband & I decided to book with Mr.Taylor for about half the cost! We ended up with time to spare & a driver to ourselves who took us to The Ocho Rios Jerk Centre for an authentic taste of Jamaica & to a free Jamaican rum sampling before he dropped us off a Margaritaville. Everyone was awesome, upbeat & professional. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! (BTW they will customize your tour time permitting)

“A great day!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We booked Peat Taylor, Ocho Rios was one of our ports of call on our cruise. When we arrived we went to one of the "officals" and they asked who we were looking for, we told them Peat Taylor. They called him and let him in the gate to pick us up. We went to Dunns river falls and got there before there was anyone even there, then after that we went on a scary ride in their van up to the river to go white river tubing. Everything was fun, but the roads are very narrow, so it was a little scary, but we enjoyed everything that day and never had any issues with the tour.
