This was a wonderful shore excursion from our cruise. We rode in a mini bus with about 20 others. The air conditioner didn't work so we opened the windows. Talk about a wild ride the mountains were straight up on 1 side and straight down on the other side of the road. Bushes coming in the window because we were... More

I actually went with a local to a hotel somewhere near here. It was a very cool resort way up in the mountains. I got to experience time with several locals....doing what locals do. Very cool experience, though perhaps a bit reckless. Laid back place once you cut through all of the hustlers.

The plantation is terrific, however, they hire a bus company to bring you to the plantation and back. The driver was the best - he kept us safe on those narrow mountain roads, but the bus company tour guide was a snotty, less than knowledgeable person that did not know anything about Jamaican history prior to being enslaved by the...

A truly lovely experience from beginning to end. This is a must-do, as you get a fabulous trip filled with fascinating info about Jamaica, it's history and it's people. The plantation is spectacular, set in the mountains above the Montego Bay. Keith, our driver was so informative and an excellent driver thru the twists and turns of narrow mountain roads.... More

I want to give this one a higher score because I had high hopes from all the rave reviews (and after our guide told us about 15 times to go review on trip advisor, I see why there are so many), but despite my optimism (that I tried so hard to continue throughout the tour), I just got bored with...

The ride to and from our resort was a wild ride but the plantation tour was very enjoyable. The beautiful landscape, peaceful quietness, and friendly hosts were great. The real treat was sampling 10-12 different varieties of pineapple as well as a bunch of other things they produce. It was a delightful taste tour that made me aware of many... More

My husband and I went on this tour the end of May, through JTL tours. Our guide was Winston, he was so sweet. Very knowledgeable and able to answer any questions we had. The ride from our resort to the location was very lengthy, yet we enjoyed getting to drive through the island and see the beautiful scenery. We were... More

We toured Croydon Plantation as part of a cruise excursion. The views are beautiful and the people so friendly. During the tour we got to sample honey, pineapple and coffee all local to this plantation. Everything was tasty and the lunch buffet provided at the end of the tour was delicious.
