It is a very interesting place with a lot of history. Take your camera, and take a lot of photos. The people and guides that work there are full of knowledge and can answer all your questions. Before you go take a look on youtube and see some video of the place before you go that way your know some... More

We went here as an evening excursion for $45 us each. The building itself, the history behind the place, and the grounds were interesting to see. The only ghost we had seen were actors dressed up in period clothing, and cheap make up. They would walk through the crowd of people and try scare us, which didn't happen. And the... More

This tour was very unique because it was at night in the dark. The building is amazing with a lot of historical furniture. The tour guide was very funny and knew a lot about the history of Annie Palmer. They did a great job providing extra little spooky perks too. It seemed very expensive, but most attractions in Jamaica are... More

We like watching paranormal shows and I watched a story on this building on the travel channel. If you are into spooky places at night and want to get some good history, do a night tour of this Great House, there are actors that will scare you but the story behind this place is pretty cool and creepy. Google the... More

I love haunted and old buildings and the history behind the location. The kids being 2 and 4 even enjoyed the tour. You get a guide that will walk you through the house and explain the history behind each room and location. The basement is a tavern where you can have a drink and there was a local singer. Loved...

Though a little over priced and more staged than expected, it's still a fun, spooky guided tour of the plantation and its legend is a fun way to spend an hour or so.

The Kia Elite Service group we were with had a farewell dinner at this place on the last night we were in Jamaica. We were all able to tour the house before and after dinner and I thought it was so interesting. The house was beautiful at night they had it lit up on the outside and we dinned in... More

We felt a bit ripped off after doing this tour given it cost us $40 per adult and $30 for our 9 year old. The house is not haunted...in fact, they have to get actors to play the roles of some of the "ghosts." Very silly. We mainly enjoyed seeing the house from a historical and architectural standpoint. The upstairs... More
