We utilized Antsman's services for round trip airport transfer and paid for this particular agreement, on day one, at the airport in it's entirety. We were NEVER concerned about Antsman not showing up on day 10 to transport us back to the airport due to his excellent reputation on Trip Advisor! Of course day 10 he was there, as promised, to drive us back to the airport.

On the day of our arrival to beautiful Jamaica, Antsman greeted us, packed our bags in his vehicle, and welcomed us to his beautiful country. He even swung into a gas station and offered us each a beverage of choice, couple of native Red Stripes for the adults and a water for my 8 year old, compliments of Antsman himself. Drivers and roads in Jamaica are pretty wild but Antsman obtained our trust. I trusted the safety of my family with Antsman's experience as a driver. We used Antsman's driving services for a trip to YS Falls. He stated he would be waiting for us in YS Falls parking lot when we were done and insisted we take our time. We left belongings in his vehicle, under his watchful eye. Sure enough, Antsman was patiently waiting for our return and brought us "home" safely.

We took one of Antsman's tours as well. The country side tour. This was my favorite thing we did in the 10 days in Jamaica. We stopped at a school of 4-5 year olds, visited and took pictures. Went to a curry "factory". Saw the beautiful mountains! Drove through Antsman's neighborhood and saw where he lived, met his wife even. Saw a really cool soccer field where he coaches. Stopped for drinks at Antsman's bar and ate lunch at an adjoining restarant. My husband played pool with locals. There is an older kids' school located by his bar and the kids were so friendly, and asked us to come see their school so we ended up taking a tour of that school as well. Antsman was so patient. On our way back to our resort we asked to be dropped off at Rick's Cafe and said we'd take a cab back since the country side tour was completed. Antsman said he would hang out in the parking lot for us for about 45 minutes, which he did. Half way back to our resort I thought I left my cell phone at Rick's and without skipping a beat, Antsman had the vehicle turned around to go back and find my phone. After lots of research and hear say, I doubt you'll find cheaper transportation/tours. Check Antsman, via email-he's prompt with responses. antsmantour@gmail.com or website http://www.antsmantoursjamaica.com or phone 1-876-837-2690. Will post pics once we get them loaded. Trein says "hi"!!

“Great tour with Antsman”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) visited Jamaica for the first time in late May. On the recommendation of our travel agent, we contacted Antsman and arranged to spend the day with him. He was very flexible on times and we started at noon and got back about 8:00 pm. We had a terrific day with him - he took us up in the mountains to see some of the countryside, stopped for a Red Stripe at his Sports Bar and played pool, visited the "Basic" school (preschool/kindergarten) in his town and learned so much about his country. It was great to get off the resort for a while. We finished our day with a little beach time in Negril and then watched the cliff jumpers at Ricks. Antsman encouraged us to take our time and we never felt hurried. I would highly recommend him to future travelers.

“A true jamaican experience”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

My husband and I visited Negril as part of our 1 week holiday in Jamaica. We are always finding ways to travel off the beaten track to experience the true native culture of wherever we are traveling. This holiday was no exception, so even before we left we did some research and found Antsman tour through tripadvisor. The school and village tour that people wrote about was very appealing to us so we contacted Orane and set up our private tour for 2 days.
On first impressions Orane is not the bubbly over excited host. But trust me, he really grows on you. ^^ The genuine love he feels for his country and passion he shows to his community is truly admirable. On our request he took us to his village where we visited a school and got to meet some very beautiful children. We bought spicy shrimp and sugar cane from roadside stalls and Orane showed us how to eat them. YUM. He also showed us village projects that were underway to build a sports field so that children could play. We also visited a sports bar that Orane runs and got to play some pool with the local young people while laughing over drinks and listening to Bob Marley. We met alot of people on the way and Orane always made sure to introduce us to each and everyone of them. He knows EVERYONE. ^^
I've been on alot of private tours, and my opinion is that with most well known private tour groups, they are pretty much the same in the sense that they will be friendly, knowledgable and accomodating. But if the focus of your trip is not the everyday typical tour and you would like a twist to your holiday tales, then Antsman Private Tour is the company to call!
