What people are saying about St. James Parish, Jamaica

Highly recommend! We booked the Negril Sunset tour as a thank you to 52 of our guests who traveled to Montego Bay with us to celebrate our first year anniversary. The price per person was reasonable but because of the amount of people in our group, the total was a large sum and we had many questions. After calling getyourguide and speaking with the helpful rep, we booked online about 5 weeks before our arrival. The day before the excursion 4 of our guests decided not to go so we called to cancel their tickets and, true to the getyourguide site, we received a full refund for their tickets. The local the tour operator, Jamaica Customized Vacation & Tours, was fantastic. I received a confirmation text 2 days before the excursion and we worked out the final details. Our large group required 2 coaster buses and both arrived on time. The drivers were wonderful--engaging, funny, kind and they helped to make the trip to Negril the fun and memorable excursion we hoped for. We'd do it all again!

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.
