We (Mom and 16 yr old daughter) booked a private tour with Mark Morris 2 weeks ago and we were very pleased with his services. It was only $40 per person and we toured 4 places in a A/C van---Dunn's River, Coyoba gardens, Fern Gulley, and of course shopping! Price was inclusive of admission prices to Dunn's and Coyaba. If we had more people in our group, it would have been even cheaper per person. Save $$$ by booking on your own. Taxis are not cheap if you wait until last minute to decide, and if you book with the ship you pay a lot more and have a lot of people with you. If you are worried about safety and booking on your own, worry no more! Mark is a very friendly, polite, family man and I always felt safe with him and his vehicle. We even walked around town after our tour and talked to locals etc. We never felt unsafe. He took on on the "short cut" to the falls and waited while we went shopping. He also is very knowledgeable about his country. If you want to book on your own, I highly recommend Mark Morris. Just search for him on the internet and you can find his website. You decide what you want to do and he will take you there. He even waited while we shopped and then took us back to the port 2 hours later! THANKS MARK!!!!!!!!! We will use your services again!!!
