Our tour guide, Chris, was most amazing. Part of the appeal of Jamaica is the hospitality of the people. The river is cool and refreshing, Chris knew all about the local plants and animals. He told us some funny stories, he gave us limestone pedicures and we swung from the rope into the river. He stopped and went into a... More

My girlfriends and I booked the tubing excursion because it came in the package with the zip line. We honestly didn't know the type of pampering we were about to receive. The staff was profession and very friendly. Any and everything we wanted was "No Problem Mon". We relaxed while tubing down this amazing river and enjoyed the scenery. Our... More

We went on a tubing ride during our recent trip to Montego Bay. It was part of a ziplining package and didn't think much of what the experience would be like prior to arriving. We were in for a very private tour of just us 4 (my boyfriend and I and our friends). It was a much smaller experience than... More

On our recent visit to the idyllic island of Jamaica (our 4th time back), we booked a day trip for bamboo rafting and later, a visit to Rocklands Bird Sanctuary to feed hummingbirds by hand. I highly recommend both tours, which are quite close in proximity to each other. I have posted a separate review under Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, which... More

The level of activity was just right for my sister and I. The biggest part of the adventure was the ride up in the bus and it was a one lane road with a lot of switchbacks. We were allowed to leave our dry clothes and other items on the bus. The souvenir shop also had clean bathrooms and you... More

We had a wonderful experience, met many locals, and enjoyed remarkable scenery. Lagrick guided us down the river - and through an afternoon rainstorm - incredibly well. He's a great guy, and I highly recommend that you ask for him. We found this excursion through Barrett Adventures whom we also recommend highly.

Yes, you typically take a taxi from your resort up a winding road - but don't worry the taxi will pick you put when done - this is all normal. The rafts keep you dry and the slow float trip is extremely quiet and gentle. Our guide was named Romeo and he was a Rastafarian. We sang, we enjoyed the... More

I was in Jamaica from March 1st thru March 11th 2013. We took this tour thinking it was going to be a little rough and it was nothing of the sort. This was the most relaxing experience I ever had. The water is calm right now until the rains come and fill the river. You sit in big tubes and... More
