It was amazing. So many places in the world have the same tourist traps as everywhere else. It’s amazing to see and experience something like this. Before this experience we swam in the luminous lagoon and were sure nothing could beat that unique experience. We were happily wrong!

It is a very personal tour- you never feel rushed with your personal guide (we had a party of 3 with 2 amazing guides, Dino & Leroy). You get to see stunning views of Jamaica, drive an ATV, and experience the local herbs ;) which is awesome. Prices for beer and other things are decent enough (and negotiable) but you’re going to want to bring around $100 a person if you want to sample everything & buy souvenirs. If you’re just going for the experience I’d say you could get away with $40 which would cover a couple beers and some well deserved tips for the guides.

It also helps to know that this is a tight knit Jamaican community- not some built up resort or tour business. Knowing the money you spend goes directly back to the community made every dollar easy to give away. More on that the owners are actually there on sight to greet you! They started the tour out of pure love for the land and people there and it really shows. All in all this was amazing to experience and if I ever come back to Jamaica this will be the first thing I do. Pure fun from start to finish.

This experience/tour was the highlight of our vacation. From my conversations via Facebook back and forth until we were dropped back off at our resort, everyone we encountered was amazing. The experience, seeing the community, meeting the people within the community and being surrounded with the Jamaican culture was the absolute best. The people and the land are absolutely beautiful and welcoming. This tour opened your eyes to this and much more. Our resort was a little out of the pick up areas mentioned but they were very accommodating and for a small additional fee agreed to pick us. Our driver, Denis, was AMAZING! He was punctual, friendly, VERY knowledgeable of ALL things Jamaica, Rasta, the tour and the community we were visiting. Denis kept us entertained, answered my many questions (sorry Denis) and always had a smile on his face. Once we arrived to the community we were warmly greeted and offered a refreshing Rum and Boom! (Love!! and definitely have to try it!) Afterwards, Terry Ann took us on a short walk on the property talking about the land, the river and how they live off the land. Once we got to our meeting place our personal tour guides were waiting for us along with the Dune Buggies. We got to pick our guide, right when I saw Style, I knew he had to be our tour guide. Style had dreadlocks and I knew he was my person for this tour. And of course we picked the right tour guide. Style was hands down the THE BEST!!!! Style is a walking book of knowledge. He made sure we had the best time on our tour while also learning and taking everything in.
I do not want to give away the entire tour so I will leave it here. I am already planning this experience again when we return during our family vacation. I really want my children to experience this tour. One Love!

This was the best ATV excursion I’ve been on! The tour guides were awesomely chill! They took us through the countryside, stopped throughout for picture opportunities & gave us some insight into the lives of the people that live in the villages & how they make money off of marijuana farming. We got to swim in a beautiful inlet with ridiculously clear water! That was expected! Lol At the end of the tour, we were served a vegan lunch. Not my first choice, especially being that he showed us the packaging of the ‘meat’, which I won’t say what it looked like, but definitely made it even less appetizing.

They had souvenirs and a pleasant little lady selling coffee beans. We asked about brewed coffee and they told us they do coffee at the end of the tour. (They didn’t) My only suggestion would be to offer coffee to those early morning guests.

For ATV riders: be 1st or very last in the line if you can, keep your distance otherwise you’re going to suck up a lot of dirt, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes!

They’ll stop for drinks & snacks, the lady that sells the aloe LOVES American snacks! She would probably barter with you.

Highly recommended!

We had so much fun on this trip! From before even being picked up, we were taken care of and had quick responses. Owen was our driver and he was the best, we recommend you request him if possible. He was so thoughtful driving us to the location and made stops based on what we were talking about to experience more spots along the drive there.

This is a fantastic look into the way of life in rural Jamaica away from the resorts and congested cities. These wonderful people invite you into their world and share stories of their families and community. The experience takes you through different farms in the community by ATV on little back roads. You will swim in the cleanest river of mineral water. They take you into peoples farms and show you all the fruit and herbs growing there. They’ll pick it and let you inhale the scent that’s a 100 times more amazing than what you’ll use at home. They knocked down mangoes for us and cut them for us to eat. The vegan meal was delicious, as were the rum and ganja wine (you read that correctly). The guides are very knowledgeable, friendly, and generous. There are many small shops along the way, so I highly recommend bringing a couple hundred in small bills for spending cash and tips. There are many homemade and homegrown items such as handmade jewelry, the most amazing coffee, and of course locally sourced ganja in different forms.

I’m going to be honest, I really don't ever leave reviews. But this was worth every penny! If you want to see Jamaica and how the locals live, this is the place to do it. The ride was a little long, but we were also the first of the group to be picked up. But our driver Dale was amazing and made pit stops for fruit and all of the Jamaican goods and also gave us all of the Jamaican history along the way. If you ride with a big group of people from other resorts, they split you up with the people you came with and make sure to make it a personal experience. Our tour guide was Cowayne and he was amazing! I could not recommend this trip enough. It was by far the best of our Jamaican vacation. If you’re looking to get off of the resorts and see this beautiful country, this is the way to do it!

This was an amazing experience. Our driver Kenneth picked us up from our resort. A happy kind gentleman and great conversationalist. He shared many thing about his country with us which we enjoyed hearing. He stopped so we could enjoy some authentic Jamaican jerk chicken. Offered to stop so we could souvenir shop on the way back sadly we were very tired (maybe next time;). Jay our tour guide was wonderful. He took us through the tour stopping so we could enjoy right off the tree fresh coconut water and coconut jelly with his friends and family. Then he picked star fruit and cut it up for us so we could enjoy the amazing fruits the land has to offer. We enjoyed bananas along with a swim in the beautiful blue river. I will never forget such a beautiful amazing experience. I highly recommend Rastafarian experience.

The trip was with my adult family of 5 on New Year's Day. I had thought that we were booking a fun ride on newer Polaris RZR side by sides, eat lunch and see some pot plants. But, although we did, the ride to and from where it was held ruined 90% of the tour. The driver, Fambo, was fast talking, recklessly driving, cutting off other drivers, passing everywhere, tailgating anyone in front , or passed them with 3-5 other cars on turns. He asked if we were having fun and we told him no. We asked him to slow down,and he laughed and told us to chill out, to not stress him out or it could get bad. He only did it twice on the way there. But got really out of control on the way back. We were all fearing for our lives in a possible crash, full of adults, on a winding back country road.
We got out at the first hotel back and refused to ride with him . We paid for a cab to take us the rest of the way home
The Polaris Side by side ride was extremely slow and controlled. No fun at all. One machines was broken, they had to split the group in two parts.
The lunch was great.
The pot field was there Probably 250-350 plants in 3-4 groups
Stopping to swim in a couple creeks was fun.
Two of the tour guides were all rolling and smoking pot most of the time. But even if the ride had been calm and safer, the rest of the experience is way over priced.
When I got back I notified the tour scheduler and Tri Advisor of our formal complaint of that tour driver. the tour operator offered a $100 refund

Hello, I think it is very sad on your part to give us such a bad rating because of the bad experience you had with fambo on the road coming. After a good talk with Fambo, he apologized, just so we did to you, and that is why the refund of 100$usd. We altough think that the 1 star rating is by vengeance to the driver and the bad experience he gave you, and have nothing to do with the RastaSafari Experience overall. Fambo has been warned. You guys take care

An absolutely fantastic way to spend a day in Jamacia!

We started off our day being picked up from our hotel by our lovely and lively tour driver, Dale. From the moment we hopped into the van, the party got started. Through a mixture of entertaining banter and historical information, he kept us thoroughly entertained during our hour and a half ride up to Roaring River. We were lucky to have a group dynamic that meshed very well which certainly helped throughout the day. We also stopped on the way up to try some local fruits which were fantastic.

When we arrived in the village, we got a chance to pick a few local plants and learn a bit about their usage. We then were treated with a drink and a little history lesson on blue mountain coffee. We were turned over to our tour guide Terri Anne who led us up the mountain to get our day started. She stopped along the way to give us some facts and information about different plants, wildlife, and geographical area.

Upon arrival at the top of the mountain, we were greeted by our next set of tour guides Richie & Leroy. They started us off by grabbing some photos and providing an overview of the day. We hopped on our side-by-side and headed out on the tour. There are several stops along the tour including a subset of the river where you can view the tallest mountains on the island, the river site where you can swim, an area where you can get snacks and drinks, and lastly a stop at the ganja farm. At the ganja farm. be sure to try (and purchase) the wine, it is heavenly.

The tour ends with a vegan meal prepared by locals which was some of the best food we experienced while on the island. You get the opportunity to dine in an outdoor kitchen amongst beautiful scenery. The tour ended with Terri Anne guiding back down to the mountain back down to the starting place where you can buy small souviners.

On the way back, Dale offered to stop at a local jerk spot which was packed. We didn't get the chance to try any chicken because there was none ready, but we grabbed breadfruit and festival. Both were delicious as well.

Overall this was one of the highlights of our time in Jamacia. I would recommend this tour to anyone who likes to go off the beaten path and likes a little adventure. Everyone we met was so friendly and it was a chance to see another side of the island and experience something new. Being able to jump in the river is an experience that you can't get anywhere else. The support and energy of the guides are unmatched. What are you waiting for? Book it NOW!

Family
My family (wife, sister in law, kids 12yo and 9yo) had a great experience at the Rastasafari tour. Touring by ATV offered a great mix of adventure and sightseeing opportunity. The guides were terrific and made sure we were well-informed. Unexpectedly, the kids devoured the vegetarian meal. Everything at the tour itself was great.

This is still a pretty new business, though, and there were some logistical shortcomings. For one, we didn’t have a good sense in advance of how long the van ride to the tour location would be (about 90 minutes from Rose Hall), and we were not kept informed of progress along the way. It was also a bit unnerving (to the kids especially) to be brought into remote countryside without much of a sense of a plan or coordination.

As the business grows, it would be wise to invest in a website with FAQs and, perhaps more importantly, a dedicated van/driver that is uniformed/branded and does a good job communicating that everything is under control on the way to the tour. It would not be hard, for example, for there to be maps in the van that show the various waypoints and expected travel time between them. This would give guests more confidence and put them at ease.

Overall, I highly recommend the experience, and think it’s well worth the money.
