History was made in Jamaica on December 6, 2016, as four of the island’s major ports received cruise ships simultaneously for the first time ever. The historic event resulted in the award-winning tour company, Your Jamaican Tour Guide, being kept busy all day with the transportation of visitors.
Your Jamaican Tour Guide was kept particularly busy in the major resort towns of Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, which were both filled to capacity with two cruise ships each that contained thousands of guests. The Falmouth and Kingston ports had one cruise ship each, also with thousands of guests on board.
The tour company, which offers tours from the ports of Falmouth, Ocho Rios and Montego Bay, helped transport guests to various sightseeing spots and interesting locations, including famous landmarks, restaurants, and craft markets.
2016 has been a highly successful year for the local tourism sector and has already broken records. Over 1.3 million cruise passengers have arrived in the island up to October, which is an increase of 9.1 percent over the same period in 2015. The tourism ministry has also stated that it is expecting another record-breaking winter tourist season.
With four consecutive Certificate of Excellence awards from travel review site, Trip Advisor, Your Jamaican Tour Guide is among the most popular tour companies in Jamaica. It offers a range of services, including pick up and drop off at airports and private tours to various locations along the north, west, and south coasts. The company has received hundreds of favourable comments from visitors, with the vast majority rating it with full five stars.
“From booking to completion, this company made it so easy…the vehicles are immaculate…professional top to bottom…don’t look anywhere else, just book them,” said user Twacey2014 in a recent Trip Advisor review.
With the rest of the year and the approaching winter tourist season forecasted to be busier than previous years, Your Jamaican Tour Guide is looking forward to serving even more visitors to the island. Visitors are invited to book their tours through the company’s website, as well as through Trip Advisor.
