My family and I had the pleasure of meeting and traveling around with Dudley. He did everything he could to accommodate our big, pretty high maintenance group of folks and always had a genuine smile on his face. You want someone who cares about you, your safety and making sure you have a good time every time, Big Ship is the way to go! Dudley is the only driver we will use when we are back down in JA and will continue to recommend him to friends and family.

Thanks Dudley from the bottom of our hearts. - Dana Marie

This was our 4th time flying into Montego Bay, Jamaica. We have always opted for the hotel-provided transportation, but this time around we chose private transportation through Big Ship Tours. It was apparent from the beginning why this company is rated #1 on trip advisor.

Coordinating the trip was a breeze. I emailed the owner (Dudley) two days before our trip asking for a quote. He replied within a couple hours confirming availability and the cost, which was very reasonable. By the end of the day we had it booked.

Although we arrived to MBJ at 12:30pm as planned, making our way through customs took a ridiculously long time...nearly two hours. I communicated with Dudley via text message letting him know we would be late. His standard "No problem Mon - I am here" replies reassured us that we would still have a ride nice we cleared customs.

Upon clearing customs and grabbing our bags, we were met with a smile by Dudley and an assistant who helped with the bags. The Big Ship 14-passenger van was brand new, clean, cool and loaded with complimentary red stripe beer. We were on our way.

The trip to the resort flew by as Dudley introduced a few of the attractions and parishes along the way. He even stopped a second time to pick up more red stripe. Big Ship Tours was accommodating on every level.

My only regret is that we didn't book Big Ship Tours for additional tours during our stay. We simply ran out of time on our short 4-day stay.

If you are flying into MBJ, I highly recommend contacting Dudley with Big Ship Tours (www.bigshiptours.com or info@bigshiptours.com) for private transportation. You should expect friendly, on-time service at a reasonable cost. And Red Stripe beer. We will most definitely be emailing Dudley next July when we return.

My wife and I found Big Ship T&T on Tripadvisor and after reading several reviews; we decided to arrange our airport transfer and a tour with them. We are so glad that we did! Dudley took care of our airport transfer (to and from) while Everol was our guide for our one day tour of YS Falls, Appleton Rum, and Floyd's Pelican Bar. Both gentlemen were punctual, very personable, and gladly shared their impressive knowledge about Jamaican culture/history. You could not ask for a better tour company or tour guides. And they even provided ice cold Red Stripes! I highly recommend this wonderful and top-notch tour company!

Is a wonderful man and a great driver. I absolutely adore him and always use him for airport transfers and any touring we do. He is professional, personable and we have had the pleasure of getting to know him over the years. His vans are always cold, and comfortable and he will stop, or not. Your choice. He is one of the people I always look forward to seeing when I get back on the island.

We had a wonderful wedding in Negril at the end of June this year. Dudley provided transportation for all 30 of our guests to and from Negril. All of us were beyond impressed with Big Ship Tours. One of the first things that set Dudley apart was his prompt communication via email for arrangements. Within a matter of hours we were confirmed and reassured. When we got off of the plane Dudley was there and when some of us were leaving at 8am, and some at 10am, he was right there too. Dudley was very accommodating! If we needed to make a pit stop, he would say no problem with a big smile. It means so much to go to another country and feel safe and secure in one of the biggest aspects of your trip, transportation. We will never use anyone but Big Ship Tours. Thank you Dudley!
