We originally booked round trip transportation from the airport/Negril after researching online for a reliable transport. Not only was Shorty reliable but he was also proffessional, friendly (in a good way) and very accomodating. He had some cold Red Stripes waiting for us in his van. My wife does not drink beer, so he made a special stop to get here some juice for the ride to Negril. He was very informative on the way which was useful during our trip. We like him so much that we booked an excursion with him. On the excurion he took us to a place to eat out in the country. Super good authentic Jamaican food at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend Shorty for your transport and excursion needs.

“We love Shorty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

We visited Jamaica two years ago and found Shorty. This trip we chose Shorty again to drive us from Montego Bay to Treasure Beach. He is responsible, timely and great with our children. We feel safe and at home with Shorty.

“No worries with Shorty!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

We visited Jamaica in October 2012. We arrived in Montego Bay around noon but could not check into out resort in Ocho Rios until 3 or 4 that afternoon. We arranged for Shorty to pick us up at the airport and take us to Nine Mile to visit the Bob Marley Mausoleum on our way to our resort.
This being our first trip to Jamaica we were not sure what to expect. Shorty was at the airport as scheduled and was very helpful. He helped us quickly begin our vacation and made us feel very relaxed. Shorty gave us an amazing, insightful and educational tour that we probably would not have had otherwise. He helped us get around through the local towns and protected us from any potential danger. Our trip from Montego Bay to Nine Mile then to Ocho Rios took much longer than expected but we were so glad to have been in the company of Shorty. We will definitely visit Jamaica again and will absolutely use Shorty's services. We highly recommend Shorty Tours for any and all of your Jamaican tour needs.

“Incredible Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2013

We had the pleasure of spending half a day with Byron from Shorty Private Tours. We had a scheduled departure from Negril to Montego Bay with our tour company but wanted to take advantage of our late flight from Montego Bay and truly see the city. I contacted Shorty by email from our resort and recevied a super quick and professional response. We booked a private driver for the following day, which would include airport drop-off and a tour of Montego Bay.

Our pick-up was scheduled for 1:30. When we reached the lobby (at 1:34) Byron was there waiting patiently for us, as promised.

The trip to Montego Bay from Negril was a wonderful whirl-wind. I asked a million questions and Byron kindly, intelligently and humoursly responded to all of them. From local politics, to history, to custom, to sports, to the economy, Byron was an encyclopedia of knowledge. We learned more from Byron than any book would ever provide. He showed us around Montego Bay to areas we never would have had the opportunity to see as typical tourists. He took us to a great outdoor jerk place for dinner. He took us to dead end beach to interact with locals. He shared a meal with us and never for a second made us feel like we were "on the clock" (although he made sure we arrived on time for our flight!!).

Without a doubt I would HIGHLY recommend this company! Will book again when we return.

“Shorty is the BEST!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2013

Went to Jamaica last summer ('12) and wanted to explore outside of Negril. After doing lots of research we came across Shorty's Private Tours, we booked a day with Shorty to take us to Mayfield Falls. Shorty greeted us with with a smile and a cooler of Red Stripes at our hotel and we still think our day with Shorty was the best of the trip. He stopped along the way showing us local plants, fruit and explained the history of different areas we passed in the country. We wanted to plan another outing with him during our stay but ran out of time. Definitely would give him a call if and when we ever make it back to Negril.
