My husband and I just returned from our Montego Bay vacation. This was our first time in Jamaica, and before we left, we researched some tour options because we didn't want to pay for the overpriced packages you get at the hotel. We wanted something more custom and private. I cannot tell you how lucky and pleased I was to find Kenneth (Ken) Watson. During my research I had landed on a random forum that talked about him and his tours. We looked at his website and emailed him. His rates were so reasonable and he spent the entire day doing whatever we want.
We were able to visit a school (we brought some Disney crayons for the kids), shop (he took us to the places where we got the best deals), and then drove us to Negril to spend the afternoon on the beach. What a truly awesome day. Not only did Ken have a fantasic personality, but his knowledge was outstanding. Furthermore, he knows EVERYONE. Everywhere we went whether it was in Montego Bay or Negril he was saying hi to people he knew....amazing! Also, we felt very safe at all times. This was one of my concerns before leaving for Jamaica.
He will do any kind of custom tour you like (whether you are in Montego Bay/Negril or Ocho Rios). Email him and he will give you his availability and rates, which as I mentioned are truly very very reasonable. He has a few people that work for him, so make sure you ask for him. Also, please be good to him. He works very hard, and is building his business. We made sure to feed him lunch and gave him a tip (even though he owns/runs the company).
His website is www.kensjamaica.com. Book him, you won't be dissappointed.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to drop me a note.
