We had a great experience with Nicole, our guide, on the horseback riding and trek to dunns river. Luckily it was low season so we ended up with a private tour. She took us around to see some of the "real Jamaica" on the way to start our excursion. The horses at Hooves are well cared for and our guide was fantastic, even taking my husband and me off the beaten path to explain the local flora. Riding in the ocean is an incredible experience and was a highlight of the trip! When we got to the Falls, Nicole walked us all the way in and got us set up with a private guide (amazing!), so we got to hike the falls without having to deal with any other people in the long human chains. We went up different paths and our guide took a ton of great photos for us on the hike up. She even offered to drive us to other sites or shopping afterwards. Truly made us feel like VIPs!
