“Extra effort saved the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had a nice ride from the airport up to Negril only to find out a mix up at the airport was going to require another round trip. Rocky quickly rearranged his schedule so that he could accommodate me. Rocky had to hustle to get me back down to the airport before the office closed there. We made it just in time and Rocky communicated with them on the way to make sure they would wait on me. Then back around to Negril. A total of 5 hours of riding with Rocky that day but he made sure I got where I needed to be safely and on time. Thumbs up Rocky for getting me out of a jamb!

“Great way to see the island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We booked Rocky online because of the great reviews... Rocky was there to meet us at the hotel in person to introduce us to Kevin our driver for the day. We thought that was very professional of him, was nice to meet who we have been emailing with back and forth. Kevin was awesome, we went to a local jamaican patty shop, some local markets and the blue hole for the first part of our trip... Then off to Ricks Cafe for a couple hours of drinks and watching the sunset. We had booked a dinner at Ivans which is right close to Ricks and Kevin drove us there and picked us up. We felt safe the whole time, and Kevin was very informative and a lot of fun to have with us all day. We would recommend using Rocky to anyone considering hiring a driver for the day.

“Great Experience with Rocky's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We found Rocky's Taxi and Tour Services through other reviews here on Tripadvisor. In preparation for our annual Thanksgiving trip to Couples Swept Away, we decided we wanted to venture off the resort for one day to see and do some things we've been wanting to for several years. We contacted Rocky's via email and requested a quote to go to YS Falls and the Pelican Bar. Rocky very promptly responded with a quote of $230.00 for us to review. This price included transportation, entrance into the falls and the boat ride out to the Pelican Bar. One quick email back to confirm and everything was all set up.

On the day of our outing, our driver, Wayne, picked us up promptly at the time we were given. We had a small van/bus all to ourselves and Wayne was ready to take us anywhere we wanted to go and show us anything we wanted to see. Rocky even called shortly after pickup and spoke to my husband to make sure everything was OK. WOW...great customer service!!

Wayne explained to us a lot of different things about the island that we had never known/seen before. He was very knowledgeable and friendly.

After a brief stop at the Peter Tosh memorial site to stretch our legs and snap a few beautiful pics of the coast, we were back on our way to YS Falls. Once at YS Falls, Wayne got our tickets into the falls and escorted us on the tractor-tram up to the falls. Our main purpose of going to the falls was to go ziplining. There was a bit of a wait for the next group to start, but Wayne never left us. He waited to make sure that we got to do what we came for. We didn't realize that we were supposed to pay for the ziplining at the gift shop. While we were getting harnassed up, Wayne went to the gift shop and purchased our tickets for us so we didn't have to be further delayed. Again, great customer service! Once we were ready to swing among the trees, Wayne left us to enjoy our experiences and the falls. We were never under any time constraints. He said he would be waiting for us whenever we were ready.

After the Falls, the next stop was the Pelican Bar. We were taken to a tiny little fishing village bar where a fishingboat and captain was waiting to take us to the Pelican Bar. It was a beautiful day for the 10 minute boatride out to the bar. The Pelican Bar was exactly as previous reviewers had described. My husband had pre-arranged through Rocky for us to have lunch out there. Our delicious lobster and rice lunch was waiting for us when we arrived. We spent about an hour or so out at the bar, enjoying lunch, drinks and just taking in the entire atmosphere. When back on land, Wayne was ready to take us anywhere we wanted to go. He showed us many different Jamaican houses, etc. during the journey. It had been a long day and we were ready to head back since the hotel was about 2 1/2 hours away.

I would certainly recommend Rocky's Taxi & Tour Services to anyone planning an excursion while visiting Jamaica. We had a fantastic time and always felt safe and among friends.

“Thanks Rocky!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

After asking a lot of questions, we booked our transfers for our December trip with Rocky. From MBJ to Negril, with a stop at the MegaMart, from our cliff hotel to our beach hotel and back to the ariport. Rocky drove us on the airport transfers and his driver Kevin took care of us when we moved hotels. Both are very safe drivers, the vehicles are clean and nice, both arrived early to pick us up. We would definitely recommend Rocky and will use him again when we return next year!

“Excellent, Friendly, Reliable service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We have used Rocky's Taxi twice this year. Once for our transfer from the Montego Bay Airport to Negril in April and then again for our transfer to Montego Bay just a week ago. If you are looking for transportation, no need to look any further. We will use his services again. Hoping that next time we are in Jamaica we will take a tour and for sure we will be calling Rocky's !
