This was an excellent trip. Our guide, Laurel was lovely. It was very peaceful if it's good enough for the Queen to go on it's good enough for us.

It is a very peaceful and beautiful river. Being punted down the river for over an hour was so relaxing. I loved it and it is the second time that I have been.

Calm water, easy 3 mile trip to meander down the Martha Brae where we enjoyed Flora and Fauna? Took great pictures. We were there at the end of the day and basically had the river to ourselves.....no crowds from cruise ships so it was nice and relaxing.

Very cool and refreshing......he taught us all about the local plants, fruits, birds, etc. Wish the ride lasted twice as long as it was just so peaceful even with the random vendors located on the river...

Perfect experience to relax and take in the nature and scenery. The bamboo rafts were neat to float down the river on and our guide even let us paddle for a bit.

I actually signed up on line for this trip only to find out that I didn't get this particular ride so we changed it when we arrived in Montego Bay at the resort. We had no problem changing it and when we rode there we learned some interesting facts about Annie Palmer the Jamaican Witch and Rose Hall. We arrived... More

We did the bamboo rafting tour - we got there at the very end of the day, and the golden twilight was lovely as we drifted through the river. Our guide was Captain Ray - he was great and told us some interesting history and stories. Very recommended.

This is a gentle and relaxing hour on the river, the raft captains entertain and tell you about the wild life and fauna, it was a lovely experience
