Our family of four stayed in Montego Bay and we arranged for Antsman to handle our airport transfers and a day trip to Negril. Prior to our trip, Antsman promptly returned my many e-mails and assured me that he or one of his drivers would be waiting for us at the airport. As promised, we were picked up from the airport and swiftly delivered to our hotel - much better than sharing a bus with a bunch of people!

The next day Antsman promptly picked us up at 9am to begin our day trip to Negril. We told him that we wanted to go a bit off the beaten path to get to Negril, then spend a few hours on the beach followed by sunset at Rick's Cafe. Antsman delivered just that. He took us to a neat fort on the coast then up in the mountains to his hometown of Kingsvale where he opened his little bar for up for us for some refreshments. We really enjoyed visiting his village well off the tourist path. As we traveled, Antsman gave us a Jamaican history lesson and an interesting insight into Jamaican culture and politics. It became apparent that Antsman knows everyone in Hanover and Negril! He dropped up off in Negril at Margaritaville where he introduced us to Benson the security guard who set us up with an umbrella and lounge chairs on the beach. Benson looked after us all day. After a fantastic afternoon on the beach, Antsman took us to Ricks to watch the divers and view the sunset. We watched the divers and ate dinner but the kids were worn out and wanted to go before sunset. No problem - Antsman was waiting in the parking lot and took us back to our hotel in Mo Bay. If we had taken the group tour offered by our hotel we would have been stuck!

We had a great time with Antsman and will definitely use him when we return to Jamaica. He is reliable, knowledgeable, and a whole lot of fun to spend the day with. You can trust him to make the best out of your vacation.

Antsman is the way to go hes friendly and knowledgable and nothing beats the private tour. You are on your own time with him and will even bring you to the best shops and attracions in the area on top of your excursion with him. Dont book with the big tour groups book Antsman and you will be gauranteed to have a great time at a better price!!!

Orane, the owner and driver went above and beyond for the type of tour that I was looking for. I wanted a tour of the country side, one that included all there was to know and see about Agriculture on the island. He picked my parents and I up at the hotel at 9:00am and the first place he took us to was to a Curry proscessing facility. Then we stopped by a couple of local growers of produce. One place had bread fruit that was roasted and prepared with fish. He purchaesed some so that we could taste some real jamaican food.We next toured sugar cane fields and he showed us where it was harvested and the plant that proscessed it. We then went to a greenhouse operation that grew tomatoes inside. On our way back to our hotel he went through the mountains where many of the locals live. We returned back at our hotel at 4:45. We had a great time and would recommend him to everyone. Thanks again Antsman Private Tours

We used Antsman (Orane) for two days during our recent trip to Jamaica.

Before the trip the email communication with Orane was very quick and informative, we agreed the first trip and the price was very reasonable.

The day before our first trip Orane called the hotel and spoke to me to confirm everything was still OK for the following day. He was at the hotel promptly to pick us up and took us the the Black River, YS Falls and the Pelican Bar. He was very knowledgeable and told us a great deal as we drove to each of the attractions.

On the way home I mentioned that we may want to go to the Blue Hole and we agreed a price for another day out. He was more than happy to take us wherever we wanted and on the actual day we went to the Blue Hole, Negril Lighthouse, Rick's Cafe, shopping, Margaretaville and then back to the hotel.

A great experience and some superb memories that will last a lifetime. He even arranged to get some music for me that I wanted!!

Would we recommend Antsman? YES
Would we use him again if we came back? YES

Professional, friendly, helpful, great with the kids - give him a call!

I am a travel agent who used Antsman for a group of 42 people while visiting Jamaica. He arrived at the hotel very prompt with 2 busses to accomodate our group. We went to Negril shopping, then to Margaritaville and from there on to Rick's Cafe. Orane is very professionbal and tells facts about the island as you travel. He has also taken some of my customers on excursions to Dunn's River Falls, Ocho Rios and for some local dining. If you want to have a great time, be with someone that you can trust please contact Orane.
