Driver picked us up right on time at the lobby of our hotel, we were only two guests. First Stop Rose Hall Great House. There we had a wonderful privat tour. Next Stop was Montego Bay. Just strolling a bit around. as an extra we booked the luminous Lagoon with this tour. A magnificent experience!

Excellent tour for family fun! We absolutely loved our driver Mr. Claude who treated us with the true loving spirit of Jamaica. The Falls are a great choice for those who would like to explore the natural beauty of Jamaica for the 1st time.

Amazing trip to see Bob! Captain Crazy is so funny and at the same time spiritual. Greatest excursion you could take to the mecca of Raggae!
