“It was a good show, scared the kids.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2015 NEW

I would have preferred to tour the house at my own speed, read the history, check out the amazing woodworking and furniture.

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2015 NEW

We visited the Great House while staying at a nearby hotel on vacation. We decided to do the day tour and we were very happy with everything. Our tour guide was very engaging and we enjoyed our time at the house. We found lots of reasonably priced items in the gift shop including sauces, seasonings and jam. We also, purchased the picture for $10 that they take in front of the house before you enter. It comes in a real frame (not a paper folder) so it's ready to display when you get home.

“Good fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2015 NEW

We did the candlelight tour, and had great fun. There are a few surprises along the way - I won't give any more away than that! The Great House has avery interesting history. Although the guide gave lots of information about the house, we would have liked a little more information about Jamaica at that time to put it in context (e.g. the slave trade in Jamaica at that time, the slave uprising etc.) and that's the only reason we haven't given 5 stars

“A HAUNTING EXPERIENCE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2015 NEW

We had a great guide who really played his part well. You must visit at night to get the full effect of the tour. The wood work in the hse is breathtaking. This is definitely a must see when visiting Jamaica.
