We just returned from a week long vacation and used Barrett Adventures for two tours. Great
people; good value. Highly recommend the Dunn's River and secret falls combination. They picked us up from our hotel and got us to Dunn's river as it was opening. We had an almost private tour. Instead of being part of one of several groups of 20 +, it just my family of four and our guide. We had the attraction almost to ourselves. We took our time got great pictures. Best way to experience the attraction.
As good as Dunn's river was the secret falls was even better. The secret falls are beautiful and interactive. The guide Kevin (Barrett's) is a local who grew up playing in the falls. He knows the area like the back of his hand shares it all with you. It offers cliffs to jump from, rope swings, water falls, as well as caves to swim and crawl through. You can be as adventurous as you want. My son did it all even jumping down a water fall. My wife daughter and I were more cautious, but still had a blast. The secret falls was a highlight of our trip.
Our guide was Carolyn (the owner) and Richard. He was a trainee. Carolyn is a very interesting woman. She and Richard help pass the time with stories of the island and their personal experience. It was a pleasure for my family to have met both of them.
Barrett was very accommodating. After the falls they took us to a local's place for lunch. It was good and inexpensive. When my daughter expressed a desire to shop, they took us shopping. They helped us get the best deals. No extra cost.
We took a second trip to Negril. The trip was set up last minute by us. We used Barrett (Shaun) for transportation and as a guide. This was a private tour. We did Margarettville, the seven mile beach, and Ricks Cafe. Shaun stayed with us the whole time and kept the aggressive merchants in check. Again we did whatever we wanted. Shaun drove us and facilitated our requests. He stayed with us as long as we wanted. We were never rushed.
only negative was I miscalculated how long it would take to go from Mo. Bay to Negril. My kids got restless.
You can trust Barrett. They will help you experience Jamaica. My only regret is I could not talk any member of my family into joining me of their fishing excursion. Looked like a hell of a trip. Highly recommend Barrett Adventures to anyone who wants to truly experience Jamaica.
