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

I organized a trip to the secret falls & tubing for our group of 10 and it was just amazing. Everyone (our driver Loxley and all the guides) were fantastic. They all took such good care of us. The waterfalls & rivers were beautiful. A couple of things which I didn't read in other reviews. Although the tubing was less... More

My friend recommended that we used BA when we booked our trip to Montego Bay and she was right. BA has an amazing team from the owner Mrs. Carolyn to our amazing, wonderful, patient and entertaining driver Mr. Loxley. If you ever in the area of Montego Bay Jamaica I would encourage you to reserve BA and ask for Mr.... More

My husband and I had so much fun zip lining. Weren't going to do it at first, but then realized our 23 year old would but upset at us for doing nothing in Jamaica. We were so glad that we did. The trail in the mountains were long that we climbed, but worth it at the end. My favorite was... More

Carolyn's company is first rate. She's very communicative and accommodating. We booked the Blue Hole/Tubing tour with Shawn, who provided a cooler with ice at our request. He picked us up at our hotel on time and we felt safe & secure the whole day. He talked to us about points of interest, island history, gave us samples of Rum... More

Shawn was our driver/guide and we could not have had a better experience. He was waiting at the cruise dock exactly where Carolyn said he would be and took great care of us all day. There were 8 of us and we went to Secret Falls. We jumped off cliffs into the beautiful water and hiked up to the falls.... More

My wife and I booked an excursion online with Carolynn Barett's Adventures. Our guide Loxley was outstanding. He picked us up at Falmouth and drove us to Blue Hole/ Secret Falls. He was a wealth of knowledge and very friendly. We will never forget our experience of the beauty of the falls and the wonderful people we met. Highly recommend... More

Barrett Adventures was awesome! Being able to customize our tour and personalize to what we liked was great. We took the 9 mile tour followed by the secret falls. Richard picked us up and was a great guide. He was very professional and answered all our questions. He was flexible and stopped for us at a good spot to pick... More
