Glen Garwood was recommended to me by a friend who was just in Jamaica and we were not disappointed. We were a group of 4 that had never been to the island so when my friend told me about Glen I thought we'd give it a shot. I email Glen quite a bit before we even left with questions and he was very quick at responding. First thing I really liked was he asked me questions and based on the answers he picked a tour for us. When we arrived Glen contact us at the resort and let us know what to bring for the next day. He picked us up at 8 am sharp and our adventure started. Now remember you're resort will offer tours/excursion and they are fine but going with Glen you control the group size. There was only 4 of us with Glen in his very comfortable, cooler with drinks and snacks filled, air conditioned van instead of going with larger group in shuttles or buses. I should also add that Glen is an awesome guy who is very informative, personable and has some great stories. He's quick to answer any question you have and you can tell he likes what he does which makes it fun for us. After reading reviews and talking to my friend we went on the full day tour starting at Port Antonio, which I would call his 1st timers tour. With stops and sites along the way you start at Sommerset Falls. It may not be as big as Dunns River falls but it's beautiful. You can swim up to and jump off rocks at the falls or you can go in a boat if your not into water, also not a ton of people. Next was an awesome lunch that Glen set up for us. We were then off to the blue lagoon where we got to have a nice boat ride and learn about the area...very beautiful. Glen then took us to Frenchman's Cove to the most beautiful beach where we got to swim and relax. The last part of our tour was incredible. We got an amazing ride down the Rio Grande on bamboo rafts. It took about 2 hrs and your captain is very informative about the area. Then it was time to go back to the resort and we arrived around 9 pm. It is a FULL day tour. :) The prices are quoted in US $$$ and very reasonable, nearly comparable with other excursions but you get way more and it's personal. Jamaica Xplored offer other tours as well again he'll recommend places you may not think of to go. I highly recommend seeing Jamaica with Glen Garwood and I personally can't wait to go back and tour and visit again with him!
