We contacted Peat Taylor about doing just a trip to Dunn's River Falls since we weren't in port for very long (there wasn't a Falls-only option on the website) and he said no problem and set it up. We arrived on our cruise ship and followed his directions to ask the dispatcher at the end of the pier for him, and she pointed us directly to him - very organized and easy to find! Peat told us to meet 15-30 minutes after the cruise ship docked so that we would beat the crowds from the ship-sponsored excursions - great advice.
We actually were with another driver/guide (sorry, don't remember his name), but Peat came on our van (air conditioned), showed us his identification and introduced himself before we took off. Peat Taylor took another group to tubing, while our guide drove the two of us to the Falls. He gave us a little tour on the drive, telling us about what we were passing, and then gave us some pointers about Dunns River Falls (i.e. how to avoid the rather pushy vendors at the exit). We checked our watches, he walked us right up to the entrance gate, and he told us to meet him 2 hours later back at the parking lot. We climbed the falls, which was awesome, and finished up a little earlier than planned. It hadn't been 2 hours, but we figured we would head out and just wait for him for 20 minutes at the parking lot. As soon as we got out, he was already waiting and called out my name to get my attention and bring us to the van. Peat Taylor Jr. joined us then and they gave us some pointers about where to eat, shop, and what the locals enjoy. They offered to drive us to other places after we were done with the Falls, but we had them just bring us back to the port area so that we could grab some lunch there.
Overall, it was exactly what we wanted. We couldn't have gotten to the Falls and back in a taxi for the price they offered to us - We checked taxi prices at the port out of curiosity and it said $10 per person just to get there. We paid $25 per person inclusive of admission to the falls ($15), transport both ways and a personal touch. Peat Taylor Tours was very accomodating, flexible, and professional! Great overall!
