As an avid traveler, my fiancé and I like to try new destinations. We heard of Steve from some of our friends, that have visited Jamaica with him a few times.

So, what the heck why not try Jamaica. Best trip ever. So we booked our tickets, talked my brother into coming with his fiancé, made reservations for a hotel and emailed Steve our dates. You have to go for at least a week. He was free, which worked out perfect. The week in advance he shot us an email with the details for the day of arrival. We got there on time, Steve was there waiting on us. Great relaxing way to start off our vacation. Got to our hotel safely and with great humor and Jamaican history along the way from Steve. We arranged for a few days with Steve some private and tours with other travelers. For us that is ok, we like experiencing different cultures. If you want a private tour with Steve let him know in advance and he will do his best to work with the scheduling.

The days we were with Steve went by way too quickly. It's a great experience to see how he has immersed himself into the Jamaican culture. Which he does with such an respectful manner. It's is truly admirable to see. The days we didn't make reservations with Steve. We hung around the hotel in Negril. Visited some local bars, laid out on the beach and went to a few jerk chicken huts. Which Steve said is ok because, " A JAMAICA DIS". In a thick Jamaican accent.

We must say it was truly a great time spent in Jamaica. And Steve must get the credit for making our stay an absolute pleasure.

We have traveled with Steve several times and have always found him to be interesting, amusing and able to find just the right thing for you to enjoy. Speaking several languages he is able to entertain everyone.

Don't miss this opportunity. It's the best way to see Jamaica.
When visiting Jamaica last week from the cruise line, we pre-arranged a day excursion with Tahzan Tours, and we are sure glad we did. This day was the highlight of the entire week.

We found out about Tahzan tours from a local friend who travels to Jamaica a lot. Meeting us at the boat, Steve drove this family of four (two adults, two teenagers) in his bus through the mountains of Jamaica, to Negril beach, and back to the boat. Steve described much about local culture, history, language... introduced us to local people in the moun tains, brought us fruit fresh from the tree. We bought gorgeous wood carvings directly from the carver. The kids jumped off the cliffs at Rick's in Negril, and Mom had a chance to shop.

Steve is fluent in several languages including Patois, and was great at helping speak with local people with respect and good humor. He is extremely knowledgeable about Jamaica, and conveyed a rich tapestry of what it's like to live in Jamaica in a way no regular excursion ever could. I was raving about him upon our return... what a gentle, genuine, solid guy whom you quickly grow to respect and admire. The price was very reasonable too.

If you are interested in the real Jamaica, you'll want to call up Tahazn Tours. We will definitely return and look him up again.
