What people are saying about Ocho Rios


For boxing day we booked the Jamaica's Duo Tour. When we arrived at the Ocho Rios port with our cruise ship, our guide Richard picked us up from the cruise ship terminal. Richard told us very interesting facts about Jamaica when we were on our way to the Bob Marley House. The house was in a village in the countryside called Nine Mile. We had to drive through all the hills and the landscape was magnificent! We got along with Richie very well and he was very funny and friendly! As we arrived at the Bob Marley House, Richard took us to our guide there. The tour was very interesting and the rastafari guides were singing Bob Marley songs all the time, it was great! After the tour there we were off to the River Falls, which were so extremly crowded. Richie recommended us to go to another smaller fall, and it was great there as there were barely tourists! All in all I can recommend the tour with Richie to everybody! It was amazing and my family and me would definately do it again some time!

just Like Family!

Richard was AWESOME!!! He arrived promptly to pick us up. He was so friendly and personable. He had my family laughing from the time he picked us up until he dropped us off. He was an excellent guide, showing us the local sites and helping us navigate easily through areas of the tour. He also provided cold beverages which were so welcome on the hot day. We will definitely be using Richard's services upon our return to Jamaica!

Amazing time

All I can say is fantastic. Richard our tour guide was and is the best. Our cruise ship was 2.5 hrs late. We did not get the chance to see the Dunn River Falls and that was no problem because Richard made up for it with a tour of the countryside while driving to Bob Marleys house. I asked for some authentic jerked chicken and Richard brought us to this amazing road side BBQ. Great day! Great fun! Thanks again Richard.

When taking the tour in the afternoon they do not warn you that you must do everything quickly or you cannot do the available activities.
