Sorry for the late response, we have been busy with the holidays. This trip was fantastic, our driver was very kind I believe his name was Uton. The guide we had at the Blue Hole was fantastic! I believe his name was Romaine. We also had a great time at Dolphins Cove. We were impressed with our overall vacation but really enjoyed our excursions. We have told everyone we know if they go to Jamaica to book through your company for trips. I know if we come back we will do the same.
Thank you,

Hello Dwight,
Your services fully met my expectations both ways, to the hotel and back to the airport. Willie and Uton arrived on time, drove safely and told us a lot about Jamaica/ answered our questions.
I will absolutely use Karandas in the future and have no problem recommending your company.
Best regards,

We had a wonderful time at Dunn’s River Falls, our guide Uton was the best, he was very informative and took us on a wonderful journey, he made our experience in Jamaica wonderful. I will definitely book a tour with them again. Thanks for making our vacation so awesome !

I will go to tripadvisor when I have time to give you a great review!
Our driver, Uton, was great and very informative. He narrated the entire way and gave us fun facts. He went the extra mile to personally walk us into the Falls area and lines.
Lunch was just ok at the place chosen but he chose based on our having kids to tend to so we totally understood. Next time, we’d love some recommendations for more true Jamaican places to eat.
Then Uton took us to the tubing excursion. We were a bit concerned as we drove way off the beaten path to get there, but again, Uton delivered us right to the location, ensured we were taken care of, and was waiting for us at the end of the river.
Overall, I would give the entire experience a 9 out of 10! The only thing I would improve is having more lunch options available in advance to choose from….some mainstream, some off the beaten path, such that visitors can have this planned out ahead of time with the driver.
Thanks so much again! It was an awesome trip and your company did a superb job!

Hello Dwight,
I just wanted to take a moment to send you my biggest praises from a wonderful excursion. My family of four enjoyed our trip very much. We were showered with good luck that day as were arrived at the Blue Hole earlier than all the other buses and we enjoyed the play to ourselves, as we were leaving the buses were arriving. Our falls guide, Lil T, was wonderful. What a gem you have in him, he was funny, talkative, personable and all things you hope a tour guide will be. I was hoping he would be with us for the tubing portion of the trip, he was not, but the guide there was just as nice, just not as talkative. I will be passing Excursions in Jamaica along to anyone I can.
Have a great day.
Suzanne C and family.

Hi Dwight,
We had a wonderful time on our excursion! The guides were all incredible and the excursion was a true eco-adventure. Look forward to doing this again one day.
If we could improve one area, it would be the initial pick-up. There should be more signs and/or direction to where you get picked-up at the pier, just so that it is easier and quicker to find. Besides that, all is good!
Have a great day!

Thank you Dwight
We were very pleased with the excursion we took in Falmouth.
Both our driver (forgot his name) and Demar, who guided our raft were very nice people. Quite dedicated to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable.
I have already recommended your tours to many of my friends.
See you soon again.
Best Regards

Your driver was excellent he was very knowledgeable and answered all our
questions. We would definitely use your service again and would recommend
it to others. It is far superior to the group tours offered.

My family and I want to thank you and your wonderful staff for the best experience in Jamaica ever. We will definitely contact you again the next time we visit Jamaica, hopefully in November. Both Uton and Oral were the best tour guides we could have asked for, thank you again for all your help.

Good morning Dwight,
We had a great experience with your drivers. Uton picked us up and took us to Ocho Rios. He was upbeat and informative. Robert was our driver for the rest of the day. He was amazing and made sure we had an enjoyable experience. Robert is friendly and accommodating. I was hungry after all of the jumping in the blue hole and river tubing so he took us to Scotchie’s for some good jerked chicken. Cindy and I had an experience so different from the hotel tours. We loved that it was just Robert and us.
The tour itself was great. Romario was our guide at the blue hole. He took so many amazing pictures….we have a lot of good memories there and pictures to prove it.
