My group of 10 did a customized tour to Dunns River Falls and then had lunch at Miss T's - an authentic Jamaican restaurant. This tour did not disappoint! Byron, our tour guide, was excellent. He was very warm ,hospitable, knowledgeable and made us feel very welcome and comfortable on this tour. His bus was very clean and comfortable. He was punctual for our pick up and got us back to our cruise ship on time. I will use Byron again and will definitely recommend him to family and friends.

Bryon was great. Blue Hole is excellent, much better than Dunn's River Falls. If you do this with a cruise company you have to wear life jackets and cannot do all the jumps. Much better in a private tour. Great experience. Also went to beach and to Fern Gully and lunch. Bryon showed us some local sites and gave informative commentary. He was a very safe driver. Highly recommend

We had a great time he was very knowledgeable about EVERYTHING got us to Dunns River Falls before the crowds so we had a great time took us to a local restaurant for amazing lunch. Best way to go don't book through cruise ship and have to play by their rules and time schedule get your own local guide and make it up as you go how you want it!

We really enjoyed our tour. The Blue Hole was fabulous! What a beautiful place. Dunns River Falls also fun the only negative there was it was really crowded and there were not that many cruise ships in port. Still a beautiful place and fun activity to climb the falls. Byron was fabulous and provided us with a great guide at the Blue Hole. Our transportation was nice and we appreciated you tailoring the tour to what we wanted to do. Fabulous day in Ocho Rios!

Outstandingly memorable day for our entire family! Byron came with new and comfortable bus for our family of 16, ages 5 to 74, in Jamaica to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. Spent a 12 hour day together happily adventuring from waterfront to mountains through cities and villages,enhanced by excellent and entertaining commentary with stops at Dunn's River, the Blue Hole, local eateries, concluding with night wonder at the Luminous Lagoon. Byron and sidekick Maxine guided us with attentitive warmth and care.

A sudden change in ports & we had only a week to find a tour guide in Montego Bay instead of Ocho Rios. This was especially important as we chose the cruise because of a Jamaica stop and a chance to show my special need grandaughter her paternal "roots". Byron quickly agreed to the short time frame and although a national holiday gave us an excellent "non-tourist" tour. Very patient with my grandaughter as she had her hair done and answering her many questions. She (and us) agreed a highlight of tri.p

Byron is an excellent tour guide. We took this tour as a shore excursion in Jamaica. He waited for us patiently to disembark from Liberty of the Seas. The ride on the van is very comfortable. No problem with air conditioning. And no long lines compared to the ship sponsored tours. Then he took us to a nice restaurant as per our request. Our family really enjoyed this trip. Thanks a lot.

Byron is good driver, good new comfortable minibus. Blue hole is Super. But you get the most of the visit if you are a good swimmer. Dunns Falls also Super, but also only if you do the walk up trough the falls.

We decided to leave at 7am so we could get to the Blue Hole as early as possible to beat the crowd. Byron picked us up right up time and got us to the real Blue Hole right when it opened so we were the first ones there. The tour was amazing because we were the only ones there for most of the tour and got to do a lot more things because of that. Our tour guide took tons of pictures and videos for us and it was a great memory. After we were done, Byron took us tubing and we had a lot of fun there as well

We arrived in Jamaica as strangers and left with a lifelong friend. Byron is now officially part of our family!!! The day was flawless. He gave us the history of beautiful Jamaica, we saw amazing sites & he even took me spice shopping in the grocery store. Byron puts his heart & soul into the tour and we can't wait to visit Jamaica again and spend more time exploring paradise with him. We had three children (8, 17 & 20) with us and he made sure ALL had a good time.

We were a family (group) of 9 ranging in age and I must say, this tour with Byron was one of the highlights of our cruise. We were late by about an hour due to the ship not docking on time, we got to the location and within a minute of our call, Byron was picking us up in the A/C cool van on a hot Jamaican day. Byron was vey informative, polite, professional and the ability to create our own tour was priceless. HIGHLY recommend; Byron was the man ("Yah-Mon" that is!!) Thank you Byron!!!

Our ship was due to dock in Falmouth and could not get in due to wind so went to Montego Bay. My cell phone was left in the car in Detroit airport so I could not reach Byron. No worries though, Byron managed to find us even though we were not even in the same port we were supposed to be in! Byron was excellent at readjusting the tour to a new location, and a new time schedule! As the tour went on we not only saw the sites, but Byron taught us Jamaican history and way of life. No doubt a 5 star guide!

We were so impressed with Byron that we called him to take us to Montego Bay later that week and again received the best experience.
