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

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
