From the bus ride to the lunch, it was fascinating to experience Jamaica. I loved seeing the countryside and squealed when a car barely squeezed by the bus on that narrow, bumpy road. Ya Mon!! The lunch was very nice too. Our tour guide, Tameka (hope that is right) was an inspiration. I think of her often.

This is a must see for everyone of all ages. It was the last tour of the day and I was fortunate to visit when it was cloudy the breeze was cool and refreshing after a hot day of activities. The history of the plantation wasn't the normal way owners run their place that's what makes it nostalgic because you... More

I was disappointed in the tour. Our bus drivers and tour guides were knowledgable about Jamaica and the plantation, but I had higher expectations of what I would see. The views from the plantation grounds were breathtaking. The snacks and tea served to us were good. The jerk chicken was quite tasty - not too spicy. We went on a... More

My son's one request for our trip was zip lining. Since I was absolutely not interested I looked for a package tour that included zip and more. This was the perfect pick!!! The plantation was just amazing. Our party included myself, my sister and 3 teen boys. We are in love! First we did the tubing and loved it, we... More

This was a Georgian style mansion up on top of a hill that played a part in Jamaican history. It's variety of owner's use of slaves and later in history for the owner's emancipation of his slaves. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and articulate about the history of the house and it's furnishings. The grounds are beautiful and well... More

My husband and I are visiting Jamaica for the second time but this is our first time using Chukka Tours and our first time visiting the Good Hope Plantation. Our day started out promising. I booked the Cultural Experience, which boasted a tour of the great house, a rum tasting, a carriage ride an aviary and more. My husband paid... More

The original excursion we had purchased was not available, so the good folks at Chukka Adventures inquired if we'd like to change our excursion to the Ultimate Thrill Seekers package on a different day. I was somewhat skeptical we'd have fun since my wife doesn't care for heights and this package included: Zip Lines, Dune Buggy's, ATVs, Rum tasting, River... More

This plantation is part of the Chukka Adventures which makes the visit a bit confusing in the way of an identity crisis. The plantation is the historical side of it but the rest of the ground is set up for atv's, ripcord lines, obstacle type courses,etc. There is an aviary that is probably the worst I have ever seen. The... More

An excursion from the Royal Caribbean cruise i took. We took a bus to the welcome center. It was a very narrow curvy road and every time we came to a curve the driver honked his horn. Look out here we come!. At the welcome center we were served a light lunch of jerk chicken , greens and some kind... More
