“interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

A very interesting and historical visit. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable and made the tour fun. No ghostly encounters but worth the trip to such a hostorical site.

“Interesting but not amazing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 via mobile

The house is interesting.

We were disappointed that our guide wasn't really nice or interested. She didn't seem like she wanted to be there. Our group would ask questions and she acted put off by having to answer. You could tell the guide's information was a script. She didn't hide it well.

I think if the focus were more around the history of the house and the mistresses of it rather than being "haunted", it would have been better. Learning more about the plantation and a calendar house would have been a welcomed addition.

“Haunted House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Tour of the "haunted" former plantation home turned really scary for my friend's 10 & 6 yr olds. It was supposed to be kind of campy yet informative of Jamaica's dark slave history but a few people jumping out actually scared them so maybe don't take kids at night. It's pretty fun time if you're sick of bad hotel entertainment at night
