best tour guide Dominica

If you're looking for a tour guide in Dominica, call Jenner Robinson 276-4659 or email him at jenna23dm@yahoo.com. We hired him for 6 days in Dominica, and couldn't have had a better time. He took us all over the island, from Portsmouth to Delice to Rouseau and Scott's Head. We hiked Bwa Nef Falls, Choudiere Pool, Middleham Falls, Spanny Spanny Falls, and lots of other places. Swimming and hiking, that's we wanted, and Jenner provided us with days full of memories and great experiences. And he's a safe driver with a good SUV, and believe me, you'll be glad of it on the Nature Isle. It's a little like the wild west as far as driving is concerned.

I've just come back from a 10 day trip from Dominica & would recommend you split your trip between north and south, to cut down on driving time. It is an amazing place were already planning a return trip. We spent the whole 10 days based in Calibishie (which is a very good place to stay in the north) and some days we spent 5 hours driving! Jenner supplied our hire car, and we met him a few times on our travels, the people he was guiding said he was excellent.

We also agree with you very much. Jenner was our driver for several of our days in Dominica. He picked us up at the airport and let us know what to expect during our week. His knowledge and love of the island is evident in his descriptions of the villages, the sites, and the people. Additionally, we felt safe with Jenner behind the wheel, navigating the narrow, twisting roads the island is famous for. We felt like old friends by the time it was time to leave. Another driver, Alex, works for Jenner, and Alex was also an excellent guide.

Hey, we are staying in Dominica from May 1-May 6. We have booked Hotel "the Champs" in Portsmouth and we were planning to rent a car at the airport. Smart to do or do you recommend to go around with a tour guide?? Please advise!

I'd say it depends where you are wanting to drive and how much experience you have on these types of roads. We decided the cost of a driver was a lot less stress than trying to navigate unknown (and very narrow, winding) roadways and gas prices are not cheap. The road on the west side between Portsmouth and Roseau is wider and straighter than other parts of the island. Also, the drivers provided interesting narrative about the island - we loved our drivers. Another couple we talked to experienced two flat tires their first day out - there is no shoulder on most roads and they are very narrow.

We drove and navigated our way round the entire island, and did numerous hikes without a guide or driver, just depends on your confidance level really. I didn't find Dominica a hard place to drive, not compared to some where like India! As a Brit we found gas prices extremely cheap!

TOTALLY AGREE!! Jenner is the BEST, most informative, helpful, kind, safe, amiable, excellent tour guide we have ever had. We just returned from a wonderful adventure trip. I am convinced our time would not have been half so smooth without Jenner at the helm guiding us.

Hi, we are planning a trip to Dominica in a couple of weeks and we are planning to split our time between the North and South. Any suggestions would be grateful! We will be diving a couple of days but the rest of the time we plan on relaxing and exploring.
