Richard B. was an absolutely wonderful tour guide. He is warm, funny and informative with a wealth of interesting facts to share. When the coffee plantation was closed because it was on the weekend, he supplemented our tour with a trip to the Blue Hole which we adored. Richard went above and beyond our expectations and we'd take another tour with him in a heartbeat.

Richard is fantastic, he was there before we even disembarked the Disney cruise Ship. So nice to not have to wait + before we arrived He went out of his way to pick up some Shot Glasses at Hard Rock Cafe for me . Hard Rock Cafe would have been impossible for us to go to as our custom made Itinerary had us going in the opposite direction. He was knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, always punctual, & made the whole day amazing. Trust this guy and this site ! DON'T book through the cruise line book direct!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jamar and family. I am so happy you had a great day. I really take pleasure in providing great service for my customers. You all were such great sports. Thank you for a great day here on the Island!

We had a wonderful day with Richard. The van was cool and comfortable. We had to adjust our itinerary due to the local holiday but we ended up at a beautiful safe beach. Richard was professional, knowledgeable, and funny. Richard is the man!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy to have been your local guide Kim! I do take pleasure in taking care of my guests. Kindest regards.

We wanted to see more of the real Jamaica and Richard didn't disappoint. A great sense of humour from the off and he managed to pack so much into the few hours we were with him, varying the itinerary in line with the things that interested us. We would definitely recommend and will use again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy you valued the tour Andy! I take pleasure in showcasing the very best of my Island and our unique culture. The day's adventure was well worth it!

The tour with Richard was exactly what I've come to expect from Tours By Locals. An excursion provided by an extremely competent guide, fascinating places to visit, informative commentary, comfortable travel accommodations, and a lifetime of memories. Richard excelled at all of the above. Plus a witty and dry sense of humor. The other travelers thanked me profusely for arranging the tour. The icing on the cake was Jamaican cuisine at a local restaurant to acquire the full "flavor" of Jamaica!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your great review, Jon! Absolutely appreciated! I am so happy you all were happy with the service I provided. I love my country and that makes me really happy showing it to every one who takes the time and interest to visit our shores. Blessings! Richard.

Mit Richard haben wir mit Sicherheit die bis jetzt lustigste Führung verbracht. Sein Talent für Humor und Sprachen haben diesen Tag im Nu verfliegen lassen. Es versteht sich von selbst, dass er nach vielen Jahren Erfahrung auf jede Frage auch die richtige Antwort hat. Die Bedeutung des Wortes "Schlagloch" wurde uns in einer uns bis jetzt nicht bekannten Form erklärt ;-)! Sollten wir die Chance haben, wieder einmal nach Jamaica zu kommen, würden wir mit Sicherheit wieder Richard anfunken!

Sally N.United States
Richard was great and we would highly recommend him! He took us to places we never would have known about or seen on our own. His sense of humor and knowledge of the island were incredible. We felt safe at all times. The 6 hours we booked flew by. This was so much better than booking separate excursions from our resort as it allowed us to be in control of our day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind remarks Sally! We did have an awesome day. I am happy you all enjoyed the tour, and hoping that the rest of your cruise was just as great! Blessings, Richard.
The tour was amazing, meeting was exactly at time. Richard speaks a little bit German, this was really good for us. Unfortunately the time was to short to see more. Richard gave us so many impressions and informations about Jamaica, thanks a lot.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your glowing feedback Andreas! You guys were great fun! So sorry we did not have more time to explore more of the Island together. Thanks again for a great day! Best wishes, Richard.

In spite of the rain we had a great day with Richard. He suggested a change of plans, due to the weather. We toured the countryside, stopped at a coffee plantation, drove through villages in the mountains, had lunch at Scotchie's which was a real treat! Toured the area to the East of Ocho Rios, stopped at grocery store at our request where we bought locally made hot sauces. We loved his sense of humor, easy going manner, and intelligence. Richard will take you where you want to go & get you what you want!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Annette and Jeff for reviewing my service. I am so happy that in spite of the very bad weather you still had some fun. It was my absolute pleasure showing you some of the Island. Wish we had sunshine then but the Creator had other plans. Thanks again and all the best for 2015! Richard.
