Wow. Nowhere else in the world can you sit in a beautiful garden and have hummingbirds come and land on your hands. It was just incredible. We loved hearing the story of the woman who tamed them and having a guided tour around the garden.

Our private tour guide took us to this lovely bird sanctuary. It wasn't what we expected, but even better. There were not the big tropical birds you think of but the most beautiful humming birds and natural setting for them. You sit in a lovely area sheltered from the sun and the hummingbirds come right over and sit on your... More

Myself and a friend hand-fed giant hummingbirds nectar. Was highlight of my trip! The staff at the bird sanctuary was very friendly and helpful. Trip was enjoyable in cab as well

Probably not the most visited attraction in the area, our driver couldn't find it at first. It was absolutely amazing to have two different species of hummingbirds sitting on your finger (Jamaican Mango and the Red-Billed Streamertail). We were four people and the birds seemed to prefer one of us but in the end all of us got a visit.... More

My husband and I spent a memorable afternoon at this beautiful, special place tucked up in the lush Jamaican countryside. We arranged our visit through Barrett Adventures, who we used for several other tours during our stay in April of 2014. I highly recommend that tour company and will review on them separately. Prior to our stop at the bird... More

I had been looking forward to this tour for years! It was worth the $20.00!!! I love that this place is not commercialized!!! You need to bring your own camera and they will take pictures for you. Once we were seated it only took a few minutes until they were flying over us and landing on our finger to feed.... More

We were interested in the bird sanctuary and according to the guide book we read, the cost was $10 US per person. We made our way up the very steep and very narrow mountain road to the sanctuary. We were told it would be $20 which we assumed was for the two of us. The entirety of the visit was... More

A short 10-20 minute ride from Montigo Bay, it was the perfect place for some quiet time. Wear bright colors and florals- the birds will give you lots of attention. My mom had a flower on her hat, floral shirt, and a colorful purse; the hummingbirds fed from her feeder constantly. You arive to notice a beautiful garden with lush... More

Spent a lovely couple of relaxing hours feeding the humming birds and learning about some of the local plants in the gardens, well worth a visit. Went with my family (2 year old daughter and 8 year old son). The younger one was a little restless but the 8 year old loved it.

Been to Jamaica many times but this is the first time we visited here. It was a beautiful experience...didn't take the whole day but enjoyed it so much. The people there were very accommodating..they took lots of pics on my phone and gave lots of information. It was a very beautiful natural environment..we loved it!!
