It was a fantastic experience, our guide made us feel very safe. As well as being very skilled at piloting the raft down river and gave us facts and history about Jamaica and it’s nature . And the raft ride was really fun and entertaining. I would recommend this everyone visiting Jay

We so enjoyed this excursion but what made it all work was our bus driver, Robert! He did a great job taking us to all our excursions! The guide for the falls was excellent as well and we felt so safe climbing the falls!

Mr Brown is a very experienced guide, he was polite, considerate and explained places and events in great detail, he is also a very good driver. I would recommend his service anytime.

Great experience. We added the lagoon tour. From beginning to end the tour was great.

Great excursion. Party of 4 and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip
