What a great excursion! The driver was right on time and very friendly. We turned out to be the only ones that day so unexpectedly got a private tour. The driver told us about the cities, local customs and nature along the way. Once we arrived at the black river, we turned out to have a private boat here too. The trip over the river is beautiful! You will get nice/instructive information and you will (almost certainly) spot crocodiles. Then we continued to the YS waterfalls. Lunch was also here. The lunch is good with quite a few choices (jerk chicken, hamburger, fish, etc.). The YS waterfalls are very beautiful and fun to visit. Together with a guide you will go to the different parts to swim and take pictures. After this you can still use the pools near the waterfalls which is very nice.

From start to finish we had an amazing day — my favorite day in Jamaica was because of Claude! He was super accommodating with pickup, the drive was beautiful & Negril was so much fun! We were first taken to Seven Mile Beach which was amazing and we got to spend a few hours relaxing on the beach before going to Ricks. Ricks was almost too much fun, I could’ve jumped off the cliffs like 20 more times! We got to spend a good amount of time there as well, and on the way home Claude let us stop at the Pork Pit for some food to go. I would definitely recommend booking with Claude as you’ll get the most out of your trip to Negril!

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!!

Driver was fantastic! Tours were fun and exciting. My only issue is that it could have been a little longer.

It was awesome the people were friendly the food was better than resort
