Positively Phil no problem, Mon
Gotta give this an A+ tour. So, there's no confusion. You pay the 15.00 fee at Dunn River yourself and then deduct it from his overall fee. I've heard there are some other good guides, but I can only speak for Playful Phil. He kept us amused, taught us about the e...

Recommendation for Phil
If you're simply looking for a tour where you stare out the window of a bus and listen to a guide drone on, Phil Lafayette is not for you. However, if you are looking for an interactive, engaging, and fun tour, then Phil's your "mon". He is not only knowledgeable...

This was a great tour to say the least. With an extensive knowledge of Jamaica and it's people, Phil will make you feel at home on this beautiful island. His tour takes you to some of the best views in the city as well. It's on my top ten best trip excursions yet!
