Local Driver with Van Needed for Christmas Travel from SMB

My family is going to SMB over Christmas. We are looking for a trusted and reliable van driver to take us around a few days. There are 10 of us. Any suggestions for reliable drivers? Thanks in advance for your help!

I would recommend Gregg Connell of Reggae-tours. He has very nice vans as well as a very nice coaster van that would more than accomodate your group.

His website is www.reggae-tours.com

He can be reached at connellgregg@yahoo.com

876-570-2983 is his Local JA tele. you can text him and he will call you.

I as well as many on this site have used mim multiple times and it is a great experience.

I can provide info on excellent, safe,reliable drivers stationed right at the SMB gate. Feel free to PM me for names and phone numbers. I guess my thought would be to use local, Sandals approved drivers rather than calling in someone from the "outside" I do not know Greg Connell, but have read nothing but good things about him. He would probably be a fine choice but imo, I'd go with the "resident" drivers......

Hope you enjoy SMB, heading back for our 34th visit in January, '11!

By the way Gregg Connell is a resident driver. He is from Montego Bay. He is a young business man trying to make it against the large companies in a cut throat business.

BTW, as far as resident drivers, Sandals owns Island Tours, so Sandals guests may be steered to a Sandals owned venture.

Really helpful everyone - thanks for your input. I will be posting a question about easy daytrips from SMB next, so you can start thinking about it now! :-)

Matt,

By using the term "resident driver" I only meant drivers that are normally located @ SMB. NOT where they actually live.

Cebakes, I'm pretty sure Island Routes is an independant company. I believe I heard at one time that it was owned by Dominique Peterkin, then wife of former SMB GM Horace Peterkin. Only my 2 cents worth......

I'm sorry, I had the name wrong, but yes, Island Routes is a Sandals venture.
