Michael BaderUnited States
Our guide, Cyrian was very accommodating and answered any and all of our questions. His vehicle was clean and fairly new, and we've recommended him to our travel agent. However, we feel he should've warned us about the extremely pushy and intimidating local marketplace at Dunns River Falls. Also, we asked to go shopping and he brought us to a shop with very pushy sales people.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael I cant believe you say that you was not warded about the market at the Falls I even tell you not to take any money inside the falls and you come back to the bus to get the money and pay the guys and when I found out I even told you that you shouldn't do it . About the shop I take you to you did not say anything to me about it Cyrian p
Cyrian was a great tour guide, polite, professional, informative & reliable. The tour itself was adequate but not really worth $25 per person entrance fee. The tour guide there was good & knew his Marley songs & info.
Frank SheridanUnited States
Cyrian provided us an excellent tour extremely well organized, very conscientious of all parties in the group. He made sure that everyone in are group had fun and was safe. He provided us with a custom tour where we went swimming with the horses at half Moon bay equestrian center and had an amazing lunch at Chill out on the water. With everything going on with Jamaica Tours by Locals is one of the best ways to experience the country and be safe. I strongly recommend Cyrian for any tour in Jamaica. Thanks!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Frank it was a pleasure having you guys in our country. It was a fun filled day with you guys you show me a lots of respect and make my job so easy. I will be more than happy having you in Jamaica again and to be your tour guide. Say hi to the rest of folks and looking forward to seeing you in again. Thanks Cyrian P
Diana BurkeyUnited States
We were very pleased. We would use Cyrian again. He couldn't have made our tour more enjoyable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for making it Jamaica it was a pleasure having you guys on board I hope to see you again. cyrian p
We had to change the date of the tour on short term because of a change in cruise intinerary, so we got a new guide. 1st, we had to wait 45 mins at the pier before the guide showed up (and we couldn't reach him on his phone either). Therefore we had to skip 2 stops and go directly to Blue Hole - where we had to pay for entrance! In the tour desciption it was stated cleary, that entrance fee was INCLUDED. And due to the delay, swimming was cut down to 40 mins. Lunch at Scotchies was excellent, shopping ok.

Cyrian provided a great tour, ensuring we are able to be on time for each of our sights, and making sure we have a great time!
This is our first time using "Tours by Locals" and will look for them every time we go away. You get YOUR tour YOUR way, for less money than if you were with a large group tour. Our guide, Cyrian, has been doing this for years. He knows his area and his history. We were able to have discussions about the real Jamaica. And at our request, he took us to the best jerk stand on the island, rather than the touristy Margaritaville with its 10 bus loads of tourists. Very safe driver; absolutely trustworthy!

Cyrian was so much fun and so knowledgeable. He was perfect for our family and made our day from the cruise ship a very enjoyable one. His van was very spacious for our large family and everyone had a very comfortable ride. He was there to meet us early and delivered us back to ship right on time. Could not have asked for more!!

John AugerUnited States
Cyrian was truly fantastic. He was knowledgeable and personable during the entire tour providing a great experience. Cyrian provided insight about the local culture and sights that we wouldn't see with a larger tour. At the end of the day we stopped by Scotchies, a local Jerk restaurant and it was truly the best meal of our trip. Authentic Jamaican food at a local restaurant. I would highly recommend a trip with Cyrian and look forward to returning to Jamaica and going out with him again!
Yvette GafenUnited States

Vi NguyenUnited States
None of the tours by our cruise ship or independent companies met the requirements of our extended family of 12(aged 7 to 95!). We were lucky to find Cyrian who provided all the knowledge and flexibility of a custom tour which included a visit to the Turtle River Falls (great alternative to Dunn's River Falls with beautiful gardens and no crowd), Ocho Rios highlights, beach and delicious lunch stops. The day was fun and stress-less and gave us a glimpse of Jamaica. Thank you, Cyrian; you're the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi vi.how are you? I Hope you and your family is doing fine.thanks for your comment it was a pleasure having you guys in jamaica to show you some of our island Thanks Cyrian p

DeeDee McCutchanUnited States
Cyrian was wonderful! He gave us a informative and fun day in Jamaica. Our group ranged in age from 23 to 81 years of age & everyone had a great time. I would highly recommend Cyrian as a private guide and will definitely use his services again next time we are in Jamaica!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks dee dee am looking forward to having you in jamaica again . Thanks
We spent a full day with Cyrian driving to Port Antonio, Blue Lagoon and Frenchman's Cove. Cyrian is extremely professional and knowledgeable about Jamaican history and culture. He is very accommodating in terms of stops, etc. we are very happy we stopped at Fisherman's Cove (not originally in the plans) but it was certainly worth it, so beautiful ! Will definitely call Cyrian when we return to Jamaica ! This day was one of the highlights of our whole trip !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Candy. It was a pleasure having you on board. I enjoy showing some of our island. Looking forward to taking you on another tour whenever time you return to Jamaica
Christine SkrotskyUnited States
Cyrian drove us around Jamaica in January 2015 (from Ocho Rios cruise ship port) and provided us with interesting and colorful narration of this beautiful island. He personalized and customized our tour, so we had the perfect day. It was truly the highlight of our cruise ship experience. Thanks Cyrian! Chris (and the others - USNA '67)
Eliza BuyersUnited States
We loved our day with Cyrian. We was friendly and energetic, and our kids liked him too. Great conversations about the history and culture of Jamaica as we toured the country.

Tina RogersUnited States
Cyrian was a wonderful guide for Ocho Rios and made sure we were able to see all the sights we requested. Our group totally enjoyed the wonderful jerk chicken and Red Stripe beer. It was a marvelous day especially rafting on the Martha Brae. Tina Rogers
Leslie BradshawUnited States
Cyrian gave us a wonderful tour of Ocho Rios/Dunn Falls! Very Friendly and knowledgable He was waiting promptly when our ship arrived at Falmouth (actually called me to give specific directions as to where he was waiting) and most importantly he was a huge help with my elderly parents who were on the tour along with my husband - He was recommended to me by a friend and I will certainly pass his name on to anyone going to Jamaica!
Helene SheenaUnited States
Had a great day in Falmouth, Jamaica over Spring Break with Cyrian P. who met us at the pier and escorted us from adventure to adventure. River rapids tubing was relaxing and exhilarating at the same time. The water was cool and refreshing and we finished our journey at a quiet beach with turquoise, clear inviting water. Feasted on jerk chicken for lunch. Climbed Dunn's River Falls and then shopped at a local store for Blue Mountain coffee and jerk seasoning. He is the best-much better than a cruise tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for yourcompliment it was a pleasure bean your tour guide while you where on vacation in Jamaica.
Great tour, great guide.
Cyrian did a fantastic job!! He was informative, friendly and funny. He had a very comfortable bus and was a great driver. I highly recommend him!
We had Cyrian bring our group around Ocho Rios for the day and he made the day a blast. He is a fantastic tour guide and very friendly! We would definitely recommend Cyrian for any tour needs when visiting Jamaica! Thanks Cyrian for making our day awesome!

Ralph HudsonUnited States
Cyrian was AWESOME! He exceeded our expectations in every way. He anticipated the one-hour time difference between our ship time and local Jamaica time, and was at the port when we arrived. He was friendly, personable, and professional. He gave us a very interesting tour of Montego Bay. When we changed our plans about going to the beach, he gladly obliged. We look forward to seeing Cyrian on our next visit to Montego Bay.
Cyrian was a great guide, very knowledgeable about the region and very helpful in answering any and all questions we had about Jamaica and the best and safest places for us to visit. He was extremely responsible and conducted himself in a professional manner. I would highly recommend Cyrian to anyone considering hiring a guide when visiting Jamaica. Thanks Cyrian!
My tour with Cyrian was great! Being a single lady, I was worried about who this man was gonna to be and how he would treat me. Immediately I felt very safe with him. I felt very protected around him. He has a great sense of humour, full of knowledge, never boring, never thinks my questions are stupid and never makes me feel stupid in anyway. It was really nice to get the call from you yesterday. I felt even safer knowing that someone in the company is keeping an eye on your clients and workers.

Came to dock with a beautiful van. He was easy to understand..with relatively little Jamaican pronunciation. We asked to be taken early to ship and he was disappointed he could not show us more. He was always where he said he would be. We enjoyed our interaction with him.
