Carolyn is very good at this. She has real, personal local knowledge about Jamaica: not just the place, or the sites, but what it's like to live there. Good stories, looked after our small group very well. We all had a good time with her. I recommend without reservation.

The secret falls in Jamaica was one of the coolest things we have ever done. There were only about 15 other people there the whole day and the guides made us feel as though we were the only ones there. I would say that it is pretty far away from Montego Bay, where our cruise ship docked, but our driver... More

Being the tour coordinator for the four couples going on our cruise I did my research and chose Barrett Adventures. Carolyn was great to deal with and we developed a great rapport before we even left for our trip. We chose the secret waterfall and tubing and Carolyn was our guide and driver. She knows anything and everything about Jamaica... More

Our snorkel and sail was amazing. Carolyn took us out and was so fun to be around. We learned so much about the island and she has such a love for Jamaica. We were so happy to get out of the all-inclusive prison and spend some time with someone who loves what she does. Any tour with this company would... More

Don't hesitate to book with Carolyn. It will be the best decision you make in Jamaica. Our driver, Richard, is awesome. They just don't make 'em like Richard any more! You'll feel safe and just be able to enjoy! Book with Barrett Adventures as your tour company. Your search ends here.

Please read this!!! This is ABSOLUTELY the best thing you can do. Call/email Carolyn and you won't be sorry. Richard(?) was our guide and we were treated to one of the best things our family had EVER done! We are a family with three young boys (7,8,11) and this was AWESOME. He was very knowledgeable about the history and areas... More

Our driver Shawn Bryan was outstanding. He knows the history of the island, best places to eat and shop, and was very laid back and friendly. Will definitely use Barrett's again! Secret Falls is amazingly beautiful, fun, and not crowded. Highly recommend!

Secrets Falls/Blue Hole (July 2014) We were going to do Dunns Falls but I was worried about how busy it would be which would limit the overall experience. I am SOOO glad we chose an alternative through Barrett Adventures Tour Operator (10 out of 10) We booked online after reading the reviews posted on Trip Advisor. Carolyn Barrett was AWESOME.... More

Best way to see Montego Bay. Second time using Barrett's. Your own personal tour to do whatever excursions you want and at your own pace? No brainer. Our driver was great as always and got us to the ship with time to spare. We did ziplining, got there nice and early and beat the cruise excursion rush. We also stopped... More
