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!!

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

Weather was great. Don't forget your suntan though! The guides helped out a lot with us and the kids. Tubing was fun and quiet.
