Default Tour Guide Lindsay McFarlane

Has anyone used Lindsay McFarlane for a Montego Bay tour? He has been very helpful online, but would like to get some personal referrals.

I contacted Lindsay McFarlane from SNL Tours after reading good reviews online. Lindsay took me through the bustling city, local produce market, the historical St. James Parish Church (built in 1775), an amazing scenic overlook at the Richmond Hill Inn. We took a quick break at a colorful local bar for a cold Red Stripe beer then off to a local restaurant "Scotchies" for authentic Jerk Chicken.

Lindsay is very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Jamaica and its history. His rates are very reasonable and if you want to see the REAL Jamaica, give him a try. Because my time was limited, I wasn't able to see some other areas that Lindsay recommended (Dunn's River Falls, etc.), but I plan to return to Jamaica and I will definitely use Lindsay again. You can email him at snljamaicantours@hotmail.com.

I am now doing the same research, ChacalaGal. Did you book with Lindsay in Jamaica? The other reply to your post--as well as most of the reviews I have found--sound like ads, not reviews.

I have met him when I went to Jamaica. I can assure you he is legit and highly recommended. I initially booked with Lindsay, but was put in touch with one of his associates as he had a larger booking which his vehicle could accommodate. After speaking and meeting him, I can confirm he is a pleasant and honest guy.

Default Lindsay McFarlane

Hi - I hired Lindsay on my trip to Montego Bay. You won't find a more friendly and reasonably priced driver. I did a lot of research before I went and eventually settled on Lindsay. I was not disappointed.

Have fun in Jamaica!

Tim

Reasonable? As in how much per person for the type of scenic tour with stops for a beer and jerk chicken? There are just two of us at this point, so reasonable could be relative to the number of folks in the group.

Up to 4 passengers, $40 per person, with a $160 minimum fare. I think it is $35 per person for larger groups. Kids of a certain age go free. Why not drop him an email to get an accurate price?
