We used Big Ship Tours to take us to the Bob Marley Tour and Dunn's River Falls from Negril. Dudley the owner was great prior to our trip communicating with me and answering all of my questions. It was actually on his suggestion that we go to Dunn's River Falls as well as Bob Marley's Tour, which was a great suggestion because it would have been way to long of a trip from Negril to just go to Bob Marley. I really appreciated his help in answering all of my questions before we arrived.
The transportation on the trip was great! My boyfriend and I were the only ones scheduled that day so it was like we had our own private shuttle. The tour guide was very knowledgable in answering all of our questions about Jamaican culture and history and made the long ride much more fun. The best part was at Dunn's River Falls, we didn't want to use the guides provided by the park but still wanted pictures of the climb, so our driver/guide was kind enough to take our camera and walk along the stairs portion taking pictures for us! Excellent customer service!
Would definitley use this tour service again.

Dudley picked us up at our resort on time and with a big welcoming smile on his face. We were supposed to just go on the YS falls and ARF tour but on the way we mentioned we would like to someday visit the Pelican Bar. Dudley said "no problem" and off we went to the Black River where he hooked us up with "Big John" who would be our boat driver for the 2 mile boat ride to the bar.

What a great and relaxing place. We spent far too little time there and will have to make that trip again unrushed. On the way back "Big John" gave us a short tour up the Black River for a crocodile sighting tour. Very cool.

On to the YS falls. Dudley was very patient with our group who was confused and clueless part of the time on what we needed (cameras, water shoes, money....etc) and somehow got us to the tram. What a wonderful place. Very picturesque and refreshing from the jungle heat. Very nice. Had lunch at the restaurant on site. Jerk chicken, hamburgers and patties.

On to the ARF tour. Once again Dudley took very good care of us and lead us to the entrance of the tour. Nice tour on the makings of their rum and a nice tasting bar at the end.

Dudley took very good care of us a great ambassador of his country and informative of his country's history and inner workings.

Highly reccommend

Since he was our ride from the airport, Dudley was our "initiation" to Jamaica. He picked us up in his clean, air conditioned van with a big smile, happy energy, and gave us a lot of information about places we passed along the way.

The services & attention he provided really set the mood and vibe for our stay. He gave suggestions on where to go, general do's and don'ts, and when we inquired about horseback riding at Rhodes Hall, he made a stop there so that we can look around and book our ride!

The pleasant drive from the airport to our hotel on the cliffs in Negril was about 2 hours with a couple of stops for ATM/grocery etc., and by the time he dropped us off at our hotel, we were primed to begin our vacation & completely setup for major relaxing. When it was time to leave, the ride back was the same, Dudley was on time and even stopped on the way for us to get some souvenir shopping done.

Thank you and so much for welcoming us to Jamaica Dudley, we were so happy to meet you and we wish your business continued success! We will return and give you a call :)

We used Dudley and Co. for round trip private transfer between Montego Bay airport and Negril. They meet you outside the airport and/or your resort with a clean ride and have cold Red Stripe and water waiting in the cooler. Service was great - because of flight/weather issues, we had to change day and time twice on Dudley - once the morning of our arrival (called him at 5:00 in the morning). Was met with a "no problem" and they did everything to accommodate our schedule. Price was good and we would use them again in a heartbeat.
