Our guide Winston knew so much about the island and the plantation, and was good-humored as he led us to through various stations on our tour. I loved sampling seven different kinds of pineapple and other plantation fruits. Lunch was delicious, with fabulous views of the island. I appreciated Winston's attention to my mother who needed a wheelchair, and she... More

Just returned from 2 weeks vacation in the most beatiful country. Picked the Croydon excursion through our First Choice holiday rep and very very glad we did. The place is a working plantation and simply huge though the tour does not take you all through the place. Our guide Winston was knowledgable and full of humour and gave a good... More

The ride to Croydon is probably only 25 miles but takes about an hour. You will see the real Jamaica. Villages and towns along the way are not like the resorts and are interesting. The landscape in Jamaica is beautiful and the plantation is well maintained and interesting. Our guide there, Winston was very nice and has a good sense... More

Our cruise ship was here in late May 2013 and we picked the Croydon Plantation because it seemed like the perfect way to get a "taste" of Jamaica. We were not disappointed. The bus trip up the mountain gave us a behind the scenes look at daily Jamaican life and our tour guide - Winston - was very informative and... More

We took this excursion from our cruise ship since my wife is pregnant. Our guide was Winston. We both really enjoyed his humor and knowledge. The views and landscaping is incredible. They allow you to try several of their crops that were harvested that morning. I never realized the difference between a pineapple that was harvested when ripe and a... More

We purchased this excursion while on a cruise. The ride to the plantation allowed us the opportunity to actually see Jamaica. We drove for about an hour over the mountainous terrain on asphalt and dirt roads. Our local guide informed us of the local culture and history. We arrived and were offered bottled water and began the tour. Our group... More

A wonderful trip into the mountains to a fruit plantation which lasts just over half a day (from Lucea). Winston was our tour guide and he was great!! Very entertaining with his unique style in jokes but so knowledgeable on the plantation and all that is grown there as well as being passionate about his country. Definitely the right person...

The plantation isn't exactly in Montego Bay. LOL It is about an hour and half via windy narrow mountain roads full of blind curves. In fact, the best part of this tour was the trip from Montego Bay to Catadupa. It was a great cultural experience. The plantation itself was very entertaining. Of course my favorite part was to taste... More

A good trip with an excellent tour guide and we even met the owner of the Plantation. It was good to see Jamaica outside the hotel complex

The plantation is beautiful. We tasted many different pineapples and learned of the history and plant life of the Croydon Plantation. We ate lunch on a scenic hill overlooking the plantation. We had to have security guards with us at all times due to the risk of being robbed or attacked. The buses had security escorts (equivalent to our national... More
