We were advised by our housekeeper to use Hans Tours for an island tour and we did not regret it! He was knowledgeable about the environment and managed to drive on those perilous roads whilst spotting things that I wouldn't have seen if I was looking! He had a great sense of humour and was honest when he didn't know... More

Whether as part of a tour or you find it on your own, Argyle Falls is a relatively easy hike in and worth the effort. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the flora and fauna and spotted things for us to see that we surely would have missed on our own (caymans, parrots, etc.). As you approach the falls, there...

If you really want to see all these falls and not just languish at one pool you need a guide and we recommend Denny! Not only did he know loads about all the fauna and flora he took us safely down 5 parts of the waterfall and back up again. Exhausting and tough on your muscles which makes the swim... More

beautiful, 50 meter (150 foot) drop from three tiers. It helped to be there during rainy season. It definitely helped to be there NOT during tourist season as we werent hassled by hawkers and others.

Swimming in Nylon pool gave me an extra 10 years so did standing under the water fall at the Argyle falls....I now have a mad craving for Farley's Baby Biscuits. It is a wonderful place with a very pleasant walk up to the falls, if you are a bit more adventurous you can climb up to the top of the... More

The walk to this waterfall was really nice, but when getting to the waterfall, it was a bit steep and dangerous to climb too. Having this as a main attraction (& a place where school kids come to visit), I would have thought there would have been railings or steps (or something for accessibility) that could have been put in...

I came to the falls with a group of friends who made it absolutely amazing. We unfortunately came during a rainy period and the falls were not ideal to bathe in as the water was dirty. The hike up to the top of the falls was thrilling... beware of sharp rocks as you enter the pools. They are very slippery... More

I can wholeheartedly recommend Hans Tours for seeing many parts of the island and the Falls. We had an excellent day. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a relaxing and amusing swim in the Falls, watched a myriad of birds, experienced the rainforest (with liquid sun) and found Hans to be extremely knowledgable, courteous and a very good driver!...
