Best trip ever thanks to Know Jamaica Tours 2

Best trip ever thanks to Know Jamaica Tours

My Trip to Jamaica was the best trip ever thanks to Know Jamaica Tours. Jay was the best tour guide he gave our group lots of history about Jamaica we got to taste some of the food, fruits and the highlight for me was Dunn’s River Falls. Check Know Jamaica Tours out you’ll be happy you did.

The tour was first class, and unique 3

The tour was first class, and unique

This was my second visit to the island this year and couldn’t wait to organise another trip with Know Jamaica tours! Once again the tour was first class, and unique. I would highly recommend this company if you want to see parts of Jamaica that you won’t get to if you choose to stay all inclusive and use companies within your resort. Javia will ensure that you have a wonderful day and help you to fall in love with his island!

Can’t say enough great things about them! 4

Can’t say enough great things about them!

We have used Know Jamaica Tours for both of our cruise stops in Jamaica. Can’t say enough great things about them! Marva does a wonderful job in communicating before your tour. She works hard to set up a day doing exactly what you want. Once we got there we were able to change our plans when the weather didn’t cooperate. Highly recommend!

I feel completely safe and would recommend to any one

I have used Know Jamaica Tour several time, while cruising or staying at a resort. They show you the real Jamaica, meet local people. I can say that while with them, I feel completely safe and would recommend to any one looking to see Jamaica.

Full day of professional, fun and informative activities 6

Full day of professional, fun and informative activities

Omg……Know Jamaica Tours helped to make my first trip to Jamaica an awesome experience! Javia Shaw picked us up on time and provided a full day of professional, fun and informative activities on the island! We interacted (per our request) with the locals to include having lunch! We never felt unsafe!!  Marva Shaw even called us to ensure we were having a good time on the island! I will always use this company for my trips to Jamaica!

Our day was incredible! 7

Our day was incredible!

We booked with Know Jamaica Tours and Whitfield (Whitty) was our tour guide. He was WONDERFUL!! There were 3 generations from 9-62 years old and everyone had a BLAST! Whitty helped create memories for our family that we will never forget! This was one of the BEST port days ever! Whitty taught us about the Jamaican culture and took us to Gully island falls where we jumped off of the Falls into a beautiful BLUE natural spring ❤️ We stopped by a beach where we met Javia and had jerk chicken and key lime pie. We also stopped to get Jamaican rum cake and fruit off of the side of the road. Our day was incredible! Thanks Whitty. We will definitely be back and will DEFINITELY use Know Jamaica Tours ❤️❤️

I could not have asked for a better tour of Jamaica

5-STARS PLUS! I could not have asked for a better tour of Jamaica than I received from Javia with Know Jamaica Tours. Our trip was awesome and Javia made sure it was. We felt safe the entire time which was very important to us. If you want to do Jamaica the right way…call Know Jamaica Tours! Can’t wait to go back for my second time later this month. Jamaican status – here I come!

Went above and beyond with customer service 9

Went above and beyond with customer service

After talking to Javia for 4 years via social media, I finally had the pleasure of meeting him and experiencing 2 fantastic tours with Know Jamaica! And we are so glad that we chose to use these guys. We had two very different trips but both equally amazing. Javia went above and beyond with his customer service and answered all of our questions, he stopped off at every point we wanted to take photos of and showed us the real Jamaica and the way of life on his beautiful island. I would highly recommend this company, I’ve been traveling to Jamaica for 25 years and this has to be the best company I’ve found and used by far.

Our tour guide, Javia, was exceptional 10

Our tour guide, Javia, was exceptional

It was my second trip to Jamaica and second time booking with Know Jamaica Tours. We booked them to go up to Nine Mile as well as hit up some good jerk spots. We also went to a few markets. Our tour guide, Javia, was exceptional. The experience was just perfect. He was very knowledgeable and extremely friendly. Rates are very competitive. You would be better off booking with them than spending your hard earned money for a group tour. He made our day extremely memorable. I highly recommend booking with them.
