Great value! My family and I were taken to our resort in Negril from Montego Bay Airport, and also received a ride back to the airport the day of our departure. The shuttle was comfortable and the windows were wide and provided a good view for sightseeing. The ride was very quiet, no music, no talking, so everyone fell asleep. We wished the driver would have made some conversation and talked about some of the places we were passing, but it was understandable, as it’s a transportation to and from airport, not a tour guide, but it would have been nice lol :)

I loved this tour and all the stops! Dunnes River was excellent and fun, 9 mile was so neat — I’m not a huge Marley fan but I found the whole thing so interesting (minus the very sexist and crude tour guide at 9 mile), and the luminous lagoon was so much fun. I also loved the beautiful views and sunset from the tour van and even the food was pretty good. The main issue is that our tour guide for the overall trip did not speak much and when he did he was very quiet. It was honestly fine though because the view was so beautiful.

We had the best time! Claude is a fabulous guide, great company and very informative, we learned loads about Jamaica! Dunns River Falls is amazing

Had a great time, and an awesome driver. There were only 2 of us so we ended up having a private tour

Booking was very easy, the price was reasonable and they were on time for pickup.
