Reviews for Dwight Soares

Dwight-193x194 I am Dwight Soares. My family’s involvement in the tourism industry spans three generation. I got into the business of conducting tours only in September 2000. However, I take delight in showing visitors the beauty of Jamaica…I especially like to see the satisfied look on my guests face after a tour. I get a feeling of satisfaction knowing that I gave them a good memorable experience in Jamaica!

We went on the river tubing tour in Jamaica. Very nice tour, great tour guy and loved our guy who drove us. He took the time to show us around Jamaica a little bit, very personable and knew a lot. Very enjoyable excursion

Hi Dwight
The snorkel excursion exceeded our expectation. Nice that it was right beside the pier. Our captain took us to a couple of reefs, and we saw so many different fish species, coral, eels, stingrays. Amazing! We appreciated the additional time granted as well. It was hard to stop snorkelling and head back to the pier.
Thanks again for the adventure! We would certainly recommend Excursions in Jamaica to friends and family.

Hello Dwight
Thank you for the tour… I think it was you that drive us… the tour was great I cannot fault a thing… I liked the flexibilty you gave us when u took us to get jerk chicken at the bar. The tubing was great, falls were great, you were very informative… I would definitely use you again if we come to Jamaica … Jamaica was our favorite island on our cruise we loved it and would like return to stay for a week or so next time when we have saved our money… hotel and resort recommendations?..
Thanks again for your great tour.

Our excursion with you was the highlight of our trip! I’ve been telling all of my friends and co-workers that if they take a vacation in Ocho Rios that they HAVE to book this with you. Thanks so much for an awesome outing!

Dwight did amazing with this trip. There were 19 of us to coordinate and it went great. Our kids enjoyed every aspect of the excursion. An experience of a lifetime and something we will talk about for years to come!

Our family of four (kids 9 and 7) did the tour package including Dunn’s Falls and river tubing. Our Tour Specialist was Dwight Soares, and he was excellent. The drive from Ochos Rios to Dunn’s Falls was long (about 90 minutes) but Mr. Soares gave us plenty of history and sight-seeing along the way. Along the way he also offered us rest breaks and opportunities to shop at local authentic vendors if we chose. His van was clean and cool, and he was an excellent driver. On the return trip, he allowed us to stop at a local food vendor. The jerk chicken we ordered was EXCELLENT; a real treat. Mr. Soares had us back to the port well in advance of our port departure time. If you are hesitant about using an independent excursion company, don’t be. Mr. Soares and the Karandas Tours company provided us with a wonderful, safe and authentic experience in Jamaica.

Sorry for the delayed response.
As a group we had a great day, the transport bus was very clean and air conditioned which allowed for a comfortable journey to Dunn’s River Falls. Dwight our driver was very friendly and helpful, stopping off on the way to help us buy water shoes for the attraction and find an ATM! We would definitely use the company again, thank you!
Once again thank you for your custom whilst we were on holiday.
Kind Regards,

Karandas Tours worked out very well for us. You were easy to locate at the airport, got the van around & bags loaded promptly, and we were on our way to the Grand Palladium in short order!! And on departure day, you were prompt also. Our driver, was very informative and entertaining – although he did drive on the wrong side of the road!! (Come to think about it, everbody else did too!!)Overall, we were very satisfied with Karandas, and will certainly contact you if & when we return to Jamaica.

Thank you for a wonderful experience in Jamaica! We absolutely enjoyed our ride with you from the port to the tubing sight. You shared so much wonderful information with us and we really appreciated it. We loved our tubing experience down the Rio Bueno. It was made even better by Elvis and Richard! They were amazing and shared so much with us. We wish them well and hope to see them in the future!Thank you again for an awesome day and an opportunity to share your beautiful island!

Thanks Maureen, you were so kind and helpful! I’ll be sure to leave a positive rating on Trip Advisor. Would you like me reference Karandas Tours or Dwight and Excursions in Jamaica? And a preferred phone number? Blue Hole or general tour companies?Thank you for being so lovely on the phone. You must be a very nice person.
