From start to finish we had an amazing day — my favorite day in Jamaica was because of Claude! He was super accommodating with pickup, the drive was beautiful & Negril was so much fun! We were first taken to Seven Mile Beach which was amazing and we got to spend a few hours relaxing on the beach before going to Ricks. Ricks was almost too much fun, I could’ve jumped off the cliffs like 20 more times! We got to spend a good amount of time there as well, and on the way home Claude let us stop at the Pork Pit for some food to go. I would definitely recommend booking with Claude as you’ll get the most out of your trip to Negril!

Great experience! From our hotel, the drive was slightly long, but scenic. Got to stop at a few places along the way! Margaritaville & Rick's Cafe were two of the main stops and we had a great time at both! Overall a good day out!

Service is great we bought round-trip and it went smoothly we had no problems

My driver Clifford was an excellent tour guide with a vibrant personality!
