Reviews for Sheldon Dunn

Sheldon-193x194 Hi my name is Sheldon Dunn (Belly) and I am one of you tour guides with Karandas Tours. I have been in the tourism industry, conducting tours for 16 years. I enjoy my job as it’s never the same each day, every guest has a different need, and I take pleasure in satisfying the needs of all. I like to see visitors enjoying themselves in Jamaica and like to be able to make that happen!

Sheldon was a great driver. Ricardo and Riley were excellent guides. We absolutely loved blue hole with Riley and Ricardo and the river trip too. Blue hole was adventurous enough for the daredevils in our group, but for regular outdoor lovers it wasn’t too much adventure either. We had our 2 to 7-year-old kids jumping and they loved it. We appreciated getting a discount for our large group.

Hi Dwight,
Our driver/guide experiences with Sheldon were great, just as they were a year ago, which is why we requested him again. He was very helpful in suggesting tours, including the river tubing that we loved. He also called and scheduled a time to take us back to the “turtle guy” at our request. He made sure we had a guide to take us through the shopping market in Ocho Rios. Finally, he was always ready to take us somewhere when we asked, and was polite and informative as well! We hope to come back to Jamaica for our New Year’s vacation in 2018-19, and will definitely request Karandas Tours and Sheldon again!
Thank you,
Debbie M and family

Hi Dwight,
Wagwan mon!
Jamaica was amazing and the transportation service that Sheldon provided was EXCELLENT. He took very good care of us, was attentive to our needs and most importantly got us through a long day of travelling safely and securely.
Honestly, the day we spent on the tour was a highlight of the trip. I also want to thank you directly – I know there was some initial confusion about the Luminous Lagoon being a part of our excursion – and everyone sincerely appreciated you looking after things such that there were no issues including that as a part of the tour for us.
The catamaran and Dunn River falls were superb and the Lagoon was a surreal once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Without hesitation I would strongly recommend your company’s services to anyone I know travelling to Jamaica. And hopefully it won’t be too long before I can return. I love the island and the people!! When I do eventually make it back I’ll be in touch for another great excursion.
Cheers and thanks again,
Tyler

Our driver, Sheldon, was great!!! He was very nice and knowledgeable! He made sure we got to our excursion on time, all while still making us feel safe… He was a great driver, and an all around good person!!! We will definitely be using your company for our next trip!

Dwight,
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
My group and I enjoyed the Blue Hole Tour soooooooooooooooo much. Sheldon(I called him Uncle Sheldon lol) took such great care of us. I couldn’t have asked for a better driver. He kept us safe and made sure we were satisfied.
Glen and O’Shane were amazing. Glen and O’Shane were very knowledgeable and patient with everyone while going through the falls. Glen captured some amazing photos of my group and I that will last a lifetime.
I couldn’t have picked a better excursion, my group gave me kudos so thanks! lol
I have already recommended Excursions in Jamaica to my family and friends and I will definitely be back!
THANKS AGAIN!!

Our driver, Sheldon, was wonderful. He took the time to interact with the group during the highlights tours and answered any questions that we had. We were extremely comfortable with him and in the end it was as if he was part of the group also. We were able see the various neighborhoods and the tour of Rose Hall was very interesting. I would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone looking to learn more of the culture and history of Montego Bay. Shedton also is one of the best drivers that I have had the experience to interact with.

We came back from our cruise yesterday. I just wanted to say, thank you for arranging the tours. It was pleasure working with you and your team. Everyone had a great time, except that the time was short, primarily because our group was large. Vehicle was neat and clean, driver were very nice and professional, and complementary water helped a lot. Once again, thanks you.

Sheldon was a lot of fun and he really seemed to care that we had a good time. My children really liked him and he made sure we felt safe and welcome.
I can’t say enough about how great the guides at the Blue Hole were as well. “Little T” and Marlon took great care of us. My 6 year old daughter was afraid to climb the falls but they scooped her up and carried her any time she was scared. They were very good with her and with my 70 year old mother in law. I will be sure to mention that on my review as well.
Thank you again for your help.

Hello –
Our tour was FANTASTIC!!
I don’t have any complaints at all.
The drivers ( we had two ) were so friendly and responsible. Their instructions were very clear, and we always felt like we were in good hands.
I would HIGHLY suggest everyone visit the Blue Hole while in Jamaica.
I will most definitely use your company again if we come back to Jamaica..
Have a wonderful day,

Our experience was fabulous…and the driver/guide was the #1 reason. He was personable, friendly, and accommodating. Out of a scale of 1 to 10…he was an 11+++!!! Both my husband and I will highly recommend your company for anyone going to Jamaica. Awesome experience and our driver was truly the best!!

Our pick up and drop off were perfect. Our driver was easy to find both times. I don’t think our driver was expecting us for our Dreamer Catamaran tour, as we were a group of 10 that booked online and he was only expecting to pick up 4 people, but he handled it beautifully and we all made it on the bus! I will definitely use Karandas Tours on my next Jamaican trip.

Yes, your services was GREAT. Our guide “Cheap Charlie” Sheldon Dunn was great. He took up to eat at a local restaurant, somewhere we would not have stopped at and the food was excellent. He gave us information about the island and the economy and took us to the places we wanted to go. We tipped him well and he was worth it.
I will recommend your tours to everyone I know.

Hi Dwight,
I want to thank you for your message, and want to let you know that my boyfriend and I had a wonderful time on the excursion your company allowed us to have. Sheldon went above and beyond to show us a wonderful time in Jamaica. He was very informative, personal, and fun. I don’t think we could have experienced a better time. The excursion was very fun as well. It exceeded my expectations for sure. It was definitely worth it, and I hope to come back soon to do some more excursions with your company.
Thank you very much, and please thank Sheldon again for us.

Hi Dwight,
Our driver and did a superb job on our recent tour to the Blue Hole.
He was very friendly, informative and took pride in showing us the beautiful sights on the way to Ochos Rios.
We would definitely request him if we ever revisit Jamaica.
Thank you for your flexibility in allowing us to modify our tours on the day we arrived.
It was very helpful and the prices were very reasonable.
We also enjoyed having the private van to ourselves, as opposed to a busload of tourists from the cruise.
I would highly recommend your business to anyone who asked.

Thanks,

Hi Dwight,

We really enjoyed our time in Jamaica. We really wished we had more time at the Blue Hole. Since Dunn’s River was so extremely packed we only had about an hour at the Blue Hole. We wished we would have only booked the Blue Hole because it was absolutely amazing. The guides we used at the Blue Hole were great and we appreciate our driver Sheldon for pointing out the best guides at the Blue Hole. Sheldon was top notch and talked about Jamaica during our drive from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios.

I would definitely recommend Karandas Tours and I would use this service again. Very professional and great customer service.

Thanks!

 

December 15, 2015

Dwight,

Thank you for your help on the tour. I am sure that the group had a great time. I have not have the chance to go over the tour with my group leader yet, however, I am confident that it will be a great review. Thank you for your help with our group, we look forward to working with you again in the near future.

Sincerely,
Karen L

Although we wished we had more time (not your fault, but ship’s limited time in the island) we were all happy and pleased with the tour. Sheldon was very nice, polite and patient, we really enjoyed it!!
Thank you!

Sheldon Dunn was second to none. His care and professionalism made the entire group very comfortable. And our group is not the easiest to please.
We appreciated the care he took in driving some treacherous terrain and his pointers on how to handle any destination we arrived at. Many stated that they trusted him with their lives. Others stated that he would be their driver of choice when they returned to Jamaica.
Thank you Dwight and team for a job well done.

Good afternoon,

I don’t know where to begin! Sheldon was the absolute best! He was knowledgeable about the attractions and answered questions about every location on our route to the party boat. We had a great ride to and from our excursion. His personality was amazing! He kept us laughing the entire trip.

 

August 12, 2015

Dwight,

We loved our time in Jamaica and that would not have been made possible if it wasn’t for your guide, Sheldon. Sheldon went above and beyond for our group, he made us feel like family! I cannot express to you enough how great of an employee you have in Sheldon! He is an awesome tour guide and human being! Thanks for the great experience to your, your team and our “Cheap Charlie”!!!!

 

July 29, 2015

Hi Dwight!

While our tour started a little later than originally scheduled, we must say, SHELDON WAS GREAT! He went out of his way to take care of us! We were able to experience a great deal of Jamaica in the short time that we were in port. We would highly recommend Sheldon! Our group of 16 said, “WE WOULD DO IT AGAIN!” We learned very quickly that in Jamaica, there are no problems, there are situations! This is so true! Please pass onto to Sheldon that down to the littlest in the group, our experience in Jamaica was our favorite by far!

Have a nice day!

Hi Dwight,

Tour was great! Our group had a very good time visiting both Mystic Mountain and Dunn’s River Falls. Sheldon took very good care of us. The bus and his driving were top notch!
You run a very good and reputable business.

Thanks,

The whole tour was great! Our driver was very helpful and fun. The guides at Blue Hole were also helpful and fun. We really enjoyed the whole experience!

Hi Dwight,

We had as you know a big group of family & friends and to a person they absolutely LOVED Shelly & Olive. Their personal care & sharing made the tour. Many have promised an excellent review on Trip Advisor. Thanks again!

Hi Dwight,

Sheldon was our driver for the Blue Hole tour and he was great. Funny, personable, informative. We were able to leave our valuables locked in his van while we participated in the activity and we felt they were safe. The Blue Hole excursion was a lot of fun..everybody had a great time jumping off the rocks and waterfalls.

Our Driver was Sheldon and I can’t say enough great things about him. He made our experience in Jamaica a wonderful one. Not only did he get us everywhere we wanted to go, he kept us on time so we could experience it all. And Olive was an absolute delight. She also kept us on time so we could enjoy every bit of our excursion.

Thank you for making our experience in Jamaica one to remember.

Lori Myers and the whole group.

 

June 30, 2015

We absolutely loved our karandas tour with Sheldon and Glenn at the blue hole. Pick up was easy and the tour was perfect. Should have done more while we were there! Will definitely recommend and use again if we find ourselves in Jamaica! My daughter was upset when Sheldon didn’t pick us up in Grand Cayman. She thought it would be him the rest of the trip. He wrote his name on her hand so she wouldn’t forget (her request). Thanks!!!

May 29, 2015

Hey Dwight,

The excursion was awesome. All the guys on all the boats had a great time. The crews were a blast to be around, always laughing and showing everyone a good time. The captain on my boat was Mike, with Colin and Kid as the other crew members. Even though we didn’t catch any fish, the experience was one I won’t forget, nor will most of the guys either. I would definitely book with Karandas Tours again if I ever get the chance to come to Jamaica and fish again, and I would highly, highly recommend your charter services to anyone looking to go.

Again, thanks for everything Dwight, it’s been great communicating with you in such a professional and mature manner, thanks for the follow up, and I hope to chat again the next time I am in Jamaica.

Sincerely,

Tyler DeCaire

My husband, son and myself had an excellent time. Sheldon” the mini van driver” was very nice. He made our excursion to Dunn’s River Falls, a great one

HIGH DWIGHT,

I WILL KILL TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE AS THEY SAY. THE WIFE AND I DID DUNN’S FALLS LAST TUESDAY AND THE BLUE HOLE ON THURSDAY, EVERYTHING ABOUT THE TRIPS WAS PERFECT FROM THE TRANSPORTATION TO THE GUIDES. YOU ALWAYS GET THAT SENSE THAT THEY CARE ABOUT YOU HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME AND ALSO YOU CAN TELL THEY LOVE THEIR JOBS.

IN CLOSING YOU HAVE A NICE DAY AND THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP. SEE YA.

April 24, 2015

Hi Dwight,

We cannot say enough about how great our experience to Dunn Falls was on April 24. The driver was very knowledgeable of the area and the tour bus was clean and comfortable. Dunn River Falls was just beautiful and a highlight for us. We would recommend your services to our family and friends. We will return to Ocho Rios as we loved everything about Jamaica.

Thanks again!

Hello Dwight,

Thank you for your Email. We really appreciate the professionalism your company has shown right from the beginning to the end. Everything was fantastic. I have told all the tourists we met in Jamaica about your company & would absolutely be booking through you again in the future. Our driver Sheldon was great! The excursion was also great. Can’t wait to go back to Jamaica & do more excursions through Karandas Tours Limited.

Thank you very much again for a wonderful time!
All the best,

Hi Dwight,

We are back from our Oasis cruise and I wanted to just drop you a quick note to tell you our excursion with your company was great and we had a great time. I will be posting a review on TripAdvisor and will give your company lots of good grades. The driver “Cheap Charlie” was great and all the young men giving the tour were fabulous.

Thank you. Kim LaBuff

 

June 18, 2014

Hi Dwight! Sheldon “Charlie” was awesome!!!! He took really great care of us! Most importantly, he took really good care of our Mothers as they went river rafting without the rest of us. We felt safe and we all had an awesome time! Thank you so much! Send regards to Charlie from his friends in Florida! We will definitely be in touch with you when we return to Jamaica!
Thanks!

We would like to take the time to thank you for making our trip to Jamaica magical. We had a wonderful time with Sheldon as our guide. He took the time to explain everything and even make a few unscheduled stops for food etc. My family really enjoyed the Dunns River Falls and river tubing excursion. Jamaica was beautiful, as well as the people who were infectiously happy, friendly, and more than helpful. I would definitely use your services again!

 

April 15, 2014

Our driver was wonderful and made our excursion great.

 

April 9, 2014

This was my second year in a row using Karandas Tours and I will continue using this company. Our tour guide Sheldon Dunn was awesome! Sheldon was timely, knowledgeable and showed so much warmth in his personality. I booked this excursion along with myself 14 other friends and family members and everyone was highly impressed.

Let Sheldon know that we will see him next year!!!

Hi Dwight,

We used your company for the above excursions on Mar. 24 during a Carnival Victory cruise. We were very happy we decided to use your company instead of Carnival for the excursions. Sheldon (Cheap Charlie) was very timely and responsible. He was also very informative and seems to enjoy his job.

The Dunn’s River Falls tour and tour guides were very helpful and enthusiastic. The Calypso Rafting company did a great job too! The guides were great at knowing the minute we were stuck on our tubes or were going to hit the side of the River. Even our 8 1/2 year old daughter had no worries.

We were really so happy with how everything turned out and of course so relieved that Charlie was punctual especially when it came time to getting us back to our port on time. We will pass your company’s name on to anyone we know cruising to Ocho Rios.

Thank you,
Holly and Adam Baker

 

March 18, 2014

Dwight, for the second year in a row your folks provided a wonderful trip. Even though we arrived at port early, the driver found us and we got loaded, which helped us get to the Dunn’s River Falls a bit earlier than the crowd.
I fully plan on using you again next March so if you have any ideas for add-on excursions after the falls let me. We’ll have about 60 folks next year.

I’ll be in touch next January.

Thanks again for a wonderful and safe trip in Jamaica…

Thank you so much for everything. You were so accommodating to our group needs. Sheldon, our driver/guide was awesome. He had our schedule all planned out and really took great care of our group during our tour. He has a great personality and was super in every aspect.

Thanks again!

We were very happy with the service provided. We had a sick child, so only half of us got to go on the second part of the excursion. The driver was extremely helpful and stopped at pharmacy so we could get medicine. If we are in Jamaica again, we would definitely book with you again.

 

March 13, 2013

We had a great time. Sheldon was terrific. Sheldon worked really hard and was very accommodating.

A great day all and all. Just wish we could have stayed longer!!

Thanks for asking for feedback.

Sheldon was great and very flexible. We had 3 different groups in the van and we all got to do what we wanted to do in the allotted time. Everything ran smoothly. I think Sheldon made the trip for us more than the sights themselves.

Thank you

 

December 20, 2012

Hi Dwight, I just wanted to extend my thanks for providing my family of 18 a wonderful tour of Dunn’s Falls and Jamaica. We cannot begin to tell you how much everyone in our group enjoyed the trip. Sheldon was wonderful. He was kind, helpful and made us all feel comfortable and showed us a great time. You truly have an asset with him working for your company. We loved the restaurant he took us to in Columbus Park. The food was delicious. The van was perfect for our group and very clean. Most of all Sheldon truly helped make this entire day so special. Everyone from the young kids, to teens, to the older folks loved our tour and said it was the highlight of their trip:)

Thank you again and please tell Sheldon that we said hi and thank you!
