Has anyone used Peat Taylors service in Jamaica? What does his tour consist of and do you feel safe with him? We will be traveling with friends and have 4 adults, 2-13 year olds and 2-11 year olds. Any information is appreciated.
I'm not familiar with the tour group. Who referred you to them? Jamaica is one of the few islands that I tell my readers to always go on a group tour. (Generally, I'm all for exploring ports on your own.) If in doubt of this tour guide, then book one through the cruise line because those tour operators want the cruise line's huge business and will make sure you are treated well. By the way, my daughter went to Dunn's River Falls twice (when she was 5 and 7) and loved it each time. Even your teens should think it's pretty cool!

Geez, another tour guide who wanted apples? We took a cabbie in Jamaica a while back and he was very good, very safe, etc. Took us to Dunn's River Falls, waited for us while we grabbed a bite on the ship, then took us downtown. When we went to our ship for lunch, he asked if we could bring him some apples. I know it was illegal to bring apples off the ship, but someone in our group did. I was scared that we would all get arrested! Anyway, he was very glad to get them. We have used various cabbies in Jamaica 3 different times. Never had a problem.
