I have never seen caves before so this was an amazing experience. The guides are very friendly, knowledgable and keep the tours fun. I was a little creeped out by the bats in the caves but they kept to them selves. The caves are A natural wonder and a must see.

Went here as part of a cruise ship excursion with Dunn's River Falls and I honestly could have just stayed here all day -- our guide Chedd was not only very knowledgable but also hilarious and kept us all laughing with his impressions (Sean Connery, Arnold, etc). He is very good at what he does and really made the experience... More

Awesome place, we went early and we had our own tour guide for the four of us. The guide was very informative and we were free to take pictures and ask questions

Green Grotto Caves was an okay tour. Takes about 45 mins. It has some interesting history but not my favorite tour in Jamaica. My husband enjoyed it more than I did. There are a lot of bats so if you don't like birds you will not like this tour. Their are stairs and some narrow areas so if you having... More

A good tour. A lot of Jamaica's history explained here. The first James Bond movie was filmed here. Being the caves have had so many people in them, some of the caves have been taken away from nature. Still cool though.

KP, Kim Possible was our tour guide on the bus ride there and back and made the experience quite pleasurable. She taught us some Patois (local Jamaican/Creole) phrases as well. The meal at Scotchie’s was tasty but small compared the amount of chow we were enjoying on the ship. The green grotto tour was wonderful. The guide into the caverns... More

The guide made the trip. The caves were interesting. I wouldn't go too far out of you way or pay loads to come here. I really enjoyed the guide we had. He was like a comedian not just a tour guide. We really enjoyed ourselves.

The Cave was a nice experience. I went there before on a few occasions, but I wanted some of my other family members to share the experience. They enjoyed it, but I believe the guide left out most of the important info about the cave, including the fact that a James Bond movie was filmed there.

We visited Green Grotto Caves on one of our trips to Jamaica. It was on the way back to the airport from a stay near Ocho Rios and we needed a couple of hours to fill. It doesn’t look like much from the road - it's an underground cave system, but once you are inside it is fascinating. It was... More
