I had the best time tubing with our guide Eric. What a wonderful way to cool down after the excitement of zip lining and how sweaty we got climbing lol. Tip : Remember to practice your Tarzan yell for when you swing in !

This was by far one of the best times I had in Jamaica! The guides Ernie & Bones were excellent on the zipline. The driver "Belly" deserves a medal for handing the truck the way he did!! Overall awesome experience. The tubing guide Eric was patient with us, and explain about the various plants etc. The swinging from the rope... More

We did the river tubbing experience. Our guide, Charlie, was fantastic. We took our time travelling down the river, he pointed out specific trees, plants, and animals to us that are common in Jamaica. He stopped to give my friend a foot massage with limestone found in the river. He offered to have someone make a pit stop for us... More

A group of friends and some others from the hotel decided to go ziplining and tubing and I am so glad we went! Although I was scared out of my mind, the guides "Jungle Jane" and "Stone" made sure everyone was comfortable. We did lines and half way through we stopped for a break. They gave us coconut water and... More

This was by far my best experience in Jamaica. This would not have been possible without my wonderful guides Charley, Ranord, Tremaine, Dwaine & Jeff. They deserve the world!! The river tubbing was beyond fun! I would do it over and over again. The tour guides went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied. MUST VISIT!!

First of all, I would like to give a shoutout to our guide, Eric. He was the best! Eric was very informative about Jamaica and answered all of our questions. He was very easy to talk to. I was a bit skeptical about this excursion. I had pretty low expectations. I really wanted to go swim with dolphins instead of... More

Nice relaxing trip down the Great River with Dewayne. Didn't expect the lime stone pedicure! Zip lining was not my idea but the rain forest was beautiful! Jerry and Blemish were great, professional when it came to safety and a lot of fun too!

Good adventure tour. The experience was relaxing and informative. The captains or guides are very good ambassadors for Jamaica . They even do foot spas along the river. Real fun.

Jeff was our capatainand he told us all about the river. Him and the other guide Renard told us about the limestone in the river and the fresh spring. We also met some of the men who float on the bamboo rafts and they were so family and also had things to drink. There was 4 in our group and... More
