We highly recommend Rappa Rasta tours!!!
Rappa organized for us a day away from the touristic areas spending the time with local people in authentic places. He is a kind and positive guy, and the worst thing was not having more time to spend with him.
Many thanks to Sandra and Rappa for your help, and for opening to us the doors of your beautiful country!

Blesses from Spain! Hope to go back!

Very friendly, reliable and Jamaican true Rasta tour guide Rappa Rasta is very knowledgeable about Jamaica and Jamaican history. All that Rappa does, is done with love: teaching the religion of love. Thank you Rappa!
Me and my friend had a drive with Rappa from treasure beach to Kingston and all along the way he stopped at hidden gems along the south coast. The drive itself is very nice and you get to talk to Rappa and ask a lot of questions, and there is always a good answer.

We just got back from Jamaica, we stayed in the hotel Legends in Negril, where we had a great two weeks with Rappa. We did many trips, such as Nine Miles, Dunn’s River, Swamp Safari, Martha Brae, Blue Hole, Roaring River, Glistening Waters and the special tour of two days at the South Coast.
The fun about travelling with Rappa is you’ll see all kind of things you won’t see while travelling on a tour bus full of tourists.  We stopped at local shops and bars and so many beautiful places, for example Guts River. We got to know many people outside the touristic areas thanks to Rappa and they’ll stay forever in our mind, therefore we’ll sure come back and will do a revisit and see some people back again.

At the tourist areas, people sometimes bother you to sell things but Rappa always got our back and looked out for us so good, he showed us that not all people are the same. The idea of ‘party and protect’ is very nice, because we went a lot of times at the bar Bourbon Beach, which was next to our hotel and Rappa came to our beach to walk with us to the bar.

We also want to say thanks to Sandra for all the good information and scheduling things up. She’s Dutch so it was easy to communicate about the tours and details.
Keep up the good work you guys, I hope a lot of people choose Rappa Rasta tours in the future it’s a thousand times better than the excursions with a big company
We’ll definitely come back because there’s so much more to explore, greetings, the ‘no problem couple’

We had a great experience going on a tour with Rappa. He showed us beautiful places we couldn’t have dreamed off before we came to Jamaica. Thanks for the irie vibrations! One love.

We had a great time with Rappa and Sandra. On our first tour we went to Kingston. It was a very long drive from Negril, but we saw a lot of Jamaica and had some great stops. On our way we stopped at a little beach and we’ve got to see the Peter Tosh Mausoleum. We also had some lunch at a little local restaurant. In Kingston we visited the Bob Marley Museum and went to Devon House, where we had some very nice ice cream. The second tour we did with Rappa, we went to Rocklands Bird Sanctuary and Bamboo Rafting on the Martha Brae River. This was a very relaxed day full with the beautiful nature of Jamaica. Rappa and Sandra are such nice people and they have a lot to tell about the country and the Jamaican people. If you travel with them you can stop whenever you like and everything is possible. Touring with them is full joy!

We had a wonderful tour with Rappa and Sandra! My girlfriend and I didn’t want to book a tour with a big organization, but decided to tour with a local tour guide. That’s how we found Rappa and Sandra. After a short meeting at the resort which was arranged without any problems we put together our own private tour.

They picked us up at the resort and took us to various spots on the island. We saw a beautiful hidden beach, went to the Y.S. falls, did the Black River Safari and had a drink at the beautiful Pelican Bar. During the day, Rappa and Sandra told us all sorts of things about the nature of Jamaica, the history and the Rastafarian religion.
I would highly recommend this tour to everyone who is visiting Jamaica and wants to look further than their resort. Thanks again Rappa and Sandra!

Smile Jamaica! A beautiful island you don’t want to miss. We asked Rappa to be our tour guide during our time in Jamaica, one of our best decisions! Rappa knows Jamaica by heart and can take you to places no tour bus comes. We did the blue mountain tour for instance where you stay overnight in a guesthouse without electricity up in the mountains where only a four-wheel drive can come. Once in a lifetime experience! Don’t forget your flashlight and rain clothes 😉

Where the tour busses are rushing the tours, Rappa takes his time. If you want to stop anywhere it’s no problem. And if you are interested he will give you information about whatever you want to know. He doesn’t do this in a guide kind off way but more in a friend kind off way. Ask away!
What you also do not experience when you travel by group is properly meeting the locals. Trough Rappa you easily can get in contact with the locals whom are very friendly. Everybody loves the rasta’s & so do we.

Also convenient is Rappa’s flexibility, we could change our schedule easily. Probably best is when you contact Rappa and his Dutch girlfriend Sandra (they run this together) before you book your hotel(s) so you make sure you have the most optimal schedule.

So look no further, Rappa Rasta Tours is truly recommendable.
Thanks again Rappa & Sandra! We enjoyed Jamaica to the fullest and hopefully we can come again someday! Greets, Paula & Linton

I will come back, for sure!

Jamaica, the island with the most wonderful nature, fresh food, good vibes with the best people and ofcource reggae music. Rappa made me see and experience all of this for 4 weeks, “Clean game Bredda”.

He took me to Saint Ann’s, Manchester, Westmoreland and Kingston. I couldnt find all these places to stop by without a local and Rappa is the best local I could ask for to show me both the ‘country’, as the beaches and all famous places everyone needs to see once in their lives.

Don´t hurry, just have ol the fun. Thanx, Jan, Suz_ Dani. Live long and prosper.

Rappa and Sandra were so helpful. I hurt my back and couldn’t tour with them, but they drove to our hotel to bring me herbs from the backyard to make tea and brought me to a chiropractor on the beach who helped me immensely. They did everything out of the goodness of their hearts and I am so grateful. Will definitely link up next time we are down there when I’m feeling better. Thanks again!

We’ve booked our vacation to Jamaica, and we didn’t like it to go on tour with a bus full of other tourists, so we looked on internet and found the page of Rappa Rasta Tours. THAT’S what we were looking for! Touring with a local tour-guide! After some mails with Sandra (she is Dutch so that was nice and easy to talk) we had booked 2 days with Rappa.
Rappa picked us up at our resort in Ocho Rios, NO PROBLEM 🙂and we’ve went to Nine Miles. He took the long but beautiful route up to the mountains. It was great and with some reggae music in the car we felt like real Jamaicans haha. We saw Bob Marley’s Mausoleum, very special to be there.

After that Rappa brought us to a good friend, Alvin. He showed us his property and his house and told us about his life on nine mile. He also play drums in the Bob Marley Mausoleum. It was very great to meet him.

On the road Rappa stopped by a little store, and bought some bananas , and then downhill to the Dunn’s River Falls. That was very spectacular, from the beach we climbed with a guide and more people, all the way up over rocks and waterfalls NICE!!

While driving, Rappa told us a lot about his life in Jamaica, he’s such a great man, real RASTA, he shares everything he has and make a lot of people very happy. He has a heart of gold!

The second day: Ursula Nas, Oktober 2016

The second day, he brought us to Kingston, the Bob Marley Museum, also a great place to be, inside the house, where Bob has lived his last years, you see his albums, original kitchen, bedroom and studio.
Before we went to Pinnacle, we took an “5-minute” break at the Devon house, eat some ice cream.

The road trip must go on, so Rappa took us to Pinnacle. This is the place where the first Rastafari settled down, is sad to see that what is become of the dream of the Rastafari…….

The Blue hole Rappa has showed us on the 3th day, we’ve had the whole morning and is was great. Two guides brought us to the hole, it wasn’t that blue that day, because of the rain and mud from the night before, but we’ve had a great time with Rappa and the other boy’s.

We would recommend Rappa Rasta Tour to anyone who will go to Jamaica and will see it on an different but awesome way.
Thanks Rappa for the great and unforgettable time. Love, Peace and Respect!!! Greets also to Sandra.
