The caves was amazing. Cool lighting to highlight the structure. Our guide was knowledgeable and had humor. Scared the other tours and told us cool stories. I highly recommend this if you are on a cruise in the Caribbean.

I visited with my 13 year old daughter and she loved it. Boys would go wild as this is right up their alley- bats, rugged ambience, etc. This is also a great science experience for kids of all ages. Guides are very knowledgeable and pleasant. Nice change of pace between beach outings. Great workout for the thighs! Very environmentally friendly... More

The caves are nice, but not exquisite. What sets it apart is the great information the guides give. Chedd was awesome and gave us a nice overview of Jamaican history, natural history and wonderful info on bats and cave ecosystems. His jokes and impressions were the best. Green Grotto takes credit cards, which is rare at so many Jamaican attractions.... More

These are cool caves. It took a little over an hour to go through all of them, and that was plenty of time to be down there. The bats were amazing to see, and the tour guide worked hard to entertain everyone. Overall, it is a good way to spend an hour or so.

The excursion itself was ok, the caves though are like that of anywhere else. That is, they are not unique or superior to other cave systems I have visited and do not recommend this tour in Jamaica if you have already done so anywhere else. The tour of the caves was knowledgable, however; our excursion included lunch and none of... More

It was amazing. We had to put on hair nets & hard hats before entering the caves. We were brought down in with a big group of people headed by our fabulous tour guide. He was knowledgeable, funny, and kept the children in the group engaged throughout the tour. The sights under ground were wonderful. Yes, there are bats in... More

We really enjoyed seeing the caves but also learning about the history of the island and how the caves were used. We had an excellent guide and the cave was clean and seemed well cared for. I love the beach, but this was a nice change of pace.

A guided tour inside those caves is a very good experience learning more about Jamaican culture and history. My teenagers kids enjoyed a lot!

Nice to get off the resort and see something different. It is a good drive from Montego Bay; the drive is longer than the actual cave tour. Well maintained attraction, but I would not plan my whole day around it. Probably it was 45 minutes. The tour guide was very knowledge about the cave, vegetation, animals and general history of...

Did this tour in late July and it was pretty neat. The guide was really good (and hilarious) and the tour very informative. There were several young children in my group and they seemed to enjoy the tour immensely. The guide kept them very entertained. The other reviewers have pretty much summed it up so I'll just add a few... More
