Had a great day out with Richard, he is very knowledgeable, he was easy to understand , has a great sense of humour and made it an enjoyable day. I feel we now know a lot more about Ocho Rios and the Jamaican people.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind words Peter! I am happy you both had a great time and that the tour gave you an insight of my country and my people. Thanks for choosing me and ToursByLocals.com. King regards, Richard.
Richard was the best. We had a blast from beginning to end. Richard has a great sense of and pride in Jamaica. He pointed out everything he thought would interest us. He tailored the tour to accommodate my wife, who has MS, and was using a walker. We would go on tour with him again. Great time, next time we will stay longer,
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mark, I am so happy your family had a great time here in Jamaica! It was my pleasure taking care of you all. Thanks for choosing ToursByLocals and for allowing me to show you some of the island! Many blessings, Richard.

Richard was hilarious and we'll knowledgeable about the area . We spent the day driving through Ochi visiting some local vendors, driving through the mountains and having a traditional jerk lunch. The only reason I gave a 4star instead of a 5 star is because he was late and he didn't accompany us into the market where we got swamped by local vendors. Otherwise he was perfect and we will definitely call him if we come back to Jamaica
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your great review, Jessica! Sorry again for picking you up late. Re your market experience, some customers express their desire to shop on their own so I did not want to impose on your privacy to shop as you would like. My apologies. Thanks again and kind regards. Richard.
Ken BlessingUnited States
Richard did a fine job. He understood what we were interesting in doing (wandering in quiet, natural settings), and helped us find just what we were looking for. He has a relaxed, friendly manner; and provided interesting insight into life in the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ken. I am so happy you loved your tour. Blessings, Richard.

Richard is a wonderful tour guide. He's funny, careful driver, and showed us Beautiful Jamaica, that we wouldn't have seen if we stayed in port.

Daniel DingerUnited States
Richard provided excellent service and was very willing to accommodate us in every possible way. His sense of humor and knowledge of Jamaica was great and I would highly recommend him if you are looking for an excellent and caring guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Daniel. The pleasure was all mine. I really appreciate you experiencing some of the Island with me. Hope you had a great tour! Best wishes, Richard.
Richard was terrific as our tour guide in and around Ocho Rios. He did exactly what we wanted, a tour of the countryside and not touristy stuff. He was very knowledgeable about the area, took us to a small coffee plantation and we had lunch at a very nice but authentic Jerk Restaurant. He was very nice with my elderly mother but also was fun with the rest of us! I would highly recommend Richard!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah and family. I am so happy you all had fun exploring some of the Island. I take great pleasure in showing off my country. Thanks for the wonderful day we spent together. Best wishes, Richard.
Ruth MichelsonUnited States
Richard is an amazing and accommodating guide. I think we saw more of the Ochee area in a day than most see in a week. He knows the area "like the back of his hand" and will infuse your tour with a sense of history, respect for the local culture and a sense of humor when you least expect it. Our day with Richard was the highlight of our visit to Jamaica.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Ruth!! I am so happy you all enjoyed your tour of the area. I just love showing off my beautiful Island to all who choose to visit our shores. Thank you all for a wonderful day with your family and your thoughtfulness. Wishing you all good health and happiness for 2014. Blessings, Richard.
Richard was very knowledgable about the area and a born comedian. Our teenage kids l
