Our driver to this excursion was Dexter he did a phenomenal job with making sure we were safe and secured. I would say above all drivers that I met he was the best based off his interaction with me and my girls along with the statement I remember him making… He stated that his job is to make sure that he takes us back to the hotel in the same condition he picked us up in.. I enjoyed the excursion itself as well

I have been meaning to send a message regarding our experience but haven’t had much time.
Let me just say that Dexter was absolutely wonderful. He made us feel safe and gave us the knowledge we needed to get through the excursion. Tell him we said hello.
At the falls our guide Phillip was the best ever. We couldn’t have been more pleased with his patience and guidance up the falls.
Over all the experience with you your company was hands down the best!!!! When we come back to Jamaica we will certainly book another excursion through your company.
Happy customer,

Hello Dwight,
Our group had an excellent time in Jamaica. Our driver, Dexter, was wonderful. He made our experience more than we had hoped for. Thanks again!

Thank you for the great excursion. We have already recommended you to some friends. Our driver, Dexter, and Mike and our photographer ( I’m sorry I can’t remember his name) were the best! They were kind, helpful and very knowledgeable. We had so much fun. They are great employees. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Dear Dwight,
My family said Jamaica was their favorite stop. Dexter was on time, polite, helpful and full of information. He and your company made our trip to Doctor’s Cave and Margaritaville quite memorable. I will go on Trip Advisor and leave you a good review as soon as I catch up on everything here. Thank you and Dexter so much and God bless you.

Hi Dwight,
We had such a fantastic time at the Blue Hole/Secret Falls. Truly an experience to remember, and we’ll never forget it. Dexter was especially helpful, friendly and really gave us a great overview on the history of Jamaica. He was wonderful!
Again, thank you!

Good morning Dwight,
It was so much fun, it is something we are still talking about a week later. Our driver Dexter was great, he really added to the experience. He was very informational and kept the drive fun! In our eyes, even the drive was part of the experience, we loved it!
Our tour guide Glen at the Blue Hole was really great with us as well. He ensured that everyone was comfortable and that our group of 12 stayed together. He was an excellent tour guide! The river tubing was beautiful. We went to eat at an amazing restaurant and Dexter helped us figure out the menu and gave us recommendations on what to order. The Jerk Chicken was delicious! All in all it was definitely something we would recommend to any and every one going to Jamaica, it was a very pleasant experience! Thank you for working with our group!

Dear Mr. Soares,
I can not say enough wonderful things about our experience with your company and those who work there!
Let me start by saying Dexter was the perfect driver! He told us about the culture and different places to see on the island. He answered our questions of interest and was only concerned for all of our safety. He had a wonderful personality and genuinely enjoyed what he does! He was a fantastic guide! He never left us, he stayed and waited for us at each stop. He also walked us pass all the local venders to our Dunn River Falls excursion so that we may enjoy are limited time there.
We started at the Blue Hole where Dexter introduced us to our tour guides Glen and Daniel who were also exceptional young men that stayed with our group from the beginning to the end. They helped us maneuver each and every step we had to take through the rocky water.
What a wonderful and caring group of people you have employed!! I will always remember the awesome experience we all had with your company. I have also wrote a review on trip advisor praising your company. I have posted on Facebook also about the awesome time we all had.
I will always use your services when I visit Jamaica in the future. I have been twice now and plan on visiting Jamaica again in the near future.
Our group want to thank you very much for your kindness and wonderful hospitality that you showed us during our visit to your beautiful country.

I was hoping I could pass along how impressed we were with Dexter and his knowledge of the area and incredible driving skills. The roads coming back from the rum tour were very difficult to navigate as he had to drive through some very heavy rain. Dexter also was keenly aware of our time constraints and did a fantastic job getting us back to the ship on time…and in one piece. Our only regret was that we didn’t have more time on the island to explore. Your people are so friendly and hard working. One last thought to pass along to Dexter…..Donald Trump will NOT be our next President, so tell him to relax and enjoy the ridiculous process that is all part of campaigning in the good ol US of A. If you require any additional comments or feedback don’t hesitate to get in touch. Thanks again for everything.
Best wishes in the future.

Everything was great, the people were great, the excursion was great! Thank you for the amazing experience.

I will post on Trip Advisor as well. Dexter was an amazing guide! He explained the local scenery and history as we drove. He was gracious enough to stop at a pharmacy so we could pick up a few things not available at the resort. He also made an impromptu stop at a Catholic Church for my mother. Dexter is the best guide I have ever used in all of my trips! Patient, kind, accommodating and informative! I wish we could have had him again the next day for our dolphin excursion.

Just to let you know, Dexter was the most amazing driver. He was exceptionally knowledgeable, helpful and polite. A real gem to have him taking us around.
Many thanks,


March 14, 2016

Hi Dwight-
Our excursion was amazing.
Many thanks to you for your prompt correspondence and for offering great value.
Dexter was just great. He was very knowledgeable, flexible and lots of fun too. His service and cheerful attitude were a big reason why we had so much fun, and elected to book another excursion (luminous lagoon).
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we plan to return next March and will be calling on you again.
Many thanks!

Hi Dwight
I would be happy to give you a very positive recommendation. The experience throughout was exceptional. Booking was easy and professionally handled. Our driver Dexter was amazing. Handled all our questions and provided us with enough local information that we needed, and was very generous with his time. I can’t say enough good things about our experience with Dexter. The Zip Lining was great. The staff there was very professional and helpful, and they provided a truly exciting event. Dunn’s Falls was pretty cool, and here Dexter gave us exceptional advice and guidance.
All in all, a great experience from Karanda Tours, and we would highly recommend your company to anyone.
Hope that helps….let me know if you need anything else.

Good Morning,
Our tour was AMAZING. Dexter was very patient with us since we had a large group he schooled us on how to interact with the vendors. He provided us with much history on the tour. He took his job very serious and made us feel welcomed and right at home on the island. We were welcomed and felt the love from everyone we encountered on our tour. We cleaned out all of our trash on the van and he was shocked and said that had never happened and he said he would have cleaned it up. He even warned us of the statues on the tour that were inappropriate for our children way before we entered fern gulley. Thanks so much for everything wish I was back on the island and not home in the states. I appreciate your service and I will be on trip advisor leaving great reviews. The next time we are on the island I will make sure we use your services again.


March 2, 2016

Wanted you to know that are trip went off as planned and everyone enjoyed the day.
Your driver was there at the time we expected and was welcoming and informative.
The tour itself was excellent and the guides assigned to our group (3 total) were great.
I would be happy to place a positive review on any site(s) you wish. Just let me know.
Thank for your efforts and quick replies to all my inquiries.

Thank you so much for our excursion to Blue Hole and river tubing. Our group of 39 LOVED it! Most of the group commented to me that Jamaica was their favorite cruise port because of how much fun this excursion was. The drivers were so friendly. The guides were amazing! They guides were so fun, both at Blue Hole and at the river. They got everyone singing songs coming down the river; they gave extra attention to those who needed it and made sure everyone was having a great time. I can’t say enough about how great the guides were. I will recommend Karandas Tours to everyone I know who is going to Jamaica. I know a couple who is honeymooning in Ochos Rios this spring and have already made the recommendation. Again, thank you for a day we’ll always remember! I hope to come back!


February 17, 2016

We had a great tour today and Dexter was awesome! Also at Blue Hole Daniel was a great guide as well. I will be recommending them both on line on my return home as well as your tour company.
On my return to the hotel I met another couple with two kids who would also like to do this tour. I will be passing your contact info to them for possible booking this week with Dexter.
Thanks again,

Hi Dwight. We had a fantastic time . I have given a full review on tripadvisor
Dexter was awesome!


February 14, 2016

Hi Dwight
Our driver/tour guide Dexter was awesome. He was very friendly extremely nice and because of him we were not upset even though our excursion was pretty much cancelled due to weather.


February 8, 2016

Hi Dwight
We had a great time in Ocho Rios. Your drivers were superb and the provisions provided for our transfer from Kingston to Ocho were just what we needed after the long flight from the UK. Sadly the transfer took an age because of the bottlenecks at certain roundabouts where the toll road meet the regular roads. The delay was no way down to the driver, just bad timing of the incoming flight!! We were all fairly tired when our driver picked us up and I think he sensed that, so conversation was kept to a minimum so that we could rest. When the roads were clear, he certainly made sure that we arrived at Royal Plantation as quickly as possible. Our return journey back to the airport went without a hitch, and it was much quicker too! I would definitely recommend your company and look to use you again when we return to Royal Plantation in a couple of years time. Thanks again to you and the drivers.

Dwight It was an absolute pleasure. Dexter our guide and driver was fantastic, always smiling and very accommodating. The service and overall experience was absolutely fantastic. The transportation buses were always on time and in great condition. I am going to give you and Karandas Tours a 10 out of 10 for making our trip experience so wonderful. I am going to give your companies details to the entire Indian community in Sharon MA USA so they can use your companies services in Jamaica.
Best regards,

I want to say Dexter our driver was AWESOME. Very nice and informative. The blue hole trip was our best excursion. The guides were amazing. Our guide dove under into a waterfall and went through an underground passage and appeared behind us. So cool. I would also like to mention how incredible he was with my mom who is 67 and my two nephews ages 2 and 5. He made sure they didn’t fall and made it to the waterfalls safely. My 5 yr old nephew wanted to jump off the falls so he jumped with him. It was excellent. I would totally recommend this tour over and over.


January 5, 2016

Hello Dwight!
Our excursions were amazing! It was so easy booking with you. We will definitely be doing the Blue Hole again the next time we are in Jamaica and will be booking again with you. Thank you for all your help and making booking a breeze.
Thanks again,

We spent 9 days in Jamaica and chose a van + driver package. Dexter Samuels waited for us promptly in Montego Bay airport and from that moment on went out of his way to ensure we have a perfect vacation. Recommended different tours, introduced the island, the culture etc to us. Great guy, great experience.

Everything went well , Dexter was waiting for us when we got off the ship, he drove us to the Falls, he was very informative and we felt safe and secure with him. It was so nice to be in a van with our own family and not a bunch of strangers. We were back on our ship with time to spare( I was worried about the trip taking too long) I would recommend your company and if I return to Jamaica I would use your service again. Thank you



August 20, 2015

Hi Dwight,

We absolutely loved our experience.

Our driver was super nice, informative, knowledgeable and made us feel at home…took our suggestions and got us back on time for our cruise after a great tour of the city and the Falls!

We would highly recommend anyone taking the tour with your team, visiting Jamaica maan!
