“Not really worth it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We came here after reading about it online and in guide books. The tour is okay. The story is interesting, but after reading about it online, it was mostly repeat of what is online. It also sounds pretty embellished. As soon as you get on the property you get asked a half dozen times by several people to have a photo taken of you and framed. This was mildly irritating. The tour lasts about 45 minutes, it can get very hot and humid standing in the house. Definitely not worth $20 per person.

“Interesting Story and Beautiful House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This house is truly from another time. Beautifully restored architecture and a haunting tale set this attraction apart. Worth the money.

“Very interesting place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The Montego Bay Highlight Tour still has me smiling ear to ear but this attraction in particular i'd say is greatly underestimated. The view was magnificent and the STORIES! oh my, the Stories! The stories surrounding the property and its fabulously well kept antiques are just amazing and despite its age, the property is immaculately kept. This was the perfect tour to end our vacation.
The tour was wonderfully topped by our courteous driver from Team Transfers.

“Interesting ghost story”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The history as told was vivid but seemed like much of it may or may not be true. The house itself was interesting and our tour guide was good but not sure it is worth the $20 to tour.
