“Great piece of nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

A long and winding road... takes you up into the Blue mountains, either from the south (Kingston) or northern province of Portland.

Be sure to enjoy the scenery, taste authentic Blue Mountain Coffee (really expensive - except when you buy it for 10 us$ a pound at a small coffee farmer), visit the Maroons at Charles Town and experience their overwhelming hospitality.

Get out of your vehicle anywhere and take a few shots, great scenery all over the place.

“Touring Coffee Factory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We had an excellent tour led by several members of staff and purchased a ridiculous amount of coffee to take home. Delicious and informative, the staff were expert, professional and dedicated to the quality of their product. Impressive stuff.

“Beautiful mountain scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Our Blue and John Crow Mountain range lends to picturesque spots as far as your eyes can see.
The north side is always lush and green whereas the southside does not get as much rain. Our Forestry Deparment remains vigilant about planting continuously.
The peolpe you meet along the way are warm and hospitable, and like to share their produce, sometimes for a nominal charge.
Depending on the season, a Kingstonian will return home with an array of fruit and berries that can only bear at those higher altitudes.
Note, alot of the areas are only 4 wheel drive accesible, including the lovely Cinchona Gardens..

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

I went via car thru some if the Blue Mountains and I was in awe of the scenery.

For the physically active, there are lots of folks that join walking clubs and walk up the roadways while carrying water and walking sticks/poles. There are also organized bicycle tours.
