I loved this tour and all the stops! Dunnes River was excellent and fun, 9 mile was so neat — I’m not a huge Marley fan but I found the whole thing so interesting (minus the very sexist and crude tour guide at 9 mile), and the luminous lagoon was so much fun. I also loved the beautiful views and sunset from the tour van and even the food was pretty good. The main issue is that our tour guide for the overall trip did not speak much and when he did he was very quiet. It was honestly fine though because the view was so beautiful.

It was great, such an unique experience and we learn a lot too. The guides and captain were funny, knowledgeable and very helpful. Even if you can't swim, there're lifeguard vest on board that you can wear so you won't miss this one in a lifetime swim. The water is warm, so don't be afraid to go in the water. You should bring a towel, water shoes and your good mood!

The trip was excellent. Driver Bernard was waiting for exactly as arranged, escorted us into the venue, got our tickets and met us at the end. Bernard even took us into Ocho Rios for shopping. The Falls guide Howard was also excellent. First class around.

Amazing!! Dunns River was out of this world, would definitely recommend and try sticking it out and climbing all the way up! Feels so good! Our tour guide, Hajis, was brilliant and so informative! True gentleman and a laugh too!

Christina the tour guide was excellent. We enjoyed every bit of this excursion. Be warned that the trip to nine mile was narrow long and bumpy but that was part of the fun. If you’re in doubt about this trip.. don’t be!!
