          We booked airport shuttle service to and from the resort we stayed in. Andre drove us. His car was clean, the AC was comfy and Andre was friendly and answered our questions.

          Not worth the money, very much overrated
          First of all the staff are very unfriendly. Can you send a favour and don’t ask them for anything. If you have tickets in your hand for this trip, you still need to provide confirmation email that you actually purchased it yourself and didn’t steal the tickets from someone.? Which I find very weird. Thankfully for my tour guide we got away without having to show confirmation as we did not bring our cell phones with us on this excursion because we were going in water. They offer a complimentary drink. But the drink is smaller than a child’s glass and probably has approximately teaspoon of alcohol in it. They give you a number and tell you wait for your number to be called to get on the boat. But they don’t follow that everyone just lines up and gets on the boat. We told the sturgeon last 45 minutes. The boat ride was five minutes to get to the lagoon in five minutes to get back from the lagoon and they let us swim in the water for five minutes long enough to take our picture so that they can make money from us..

          This tour was exactly what I expected. Was it “amazing? No!! It was nice to get off our resort for the afternoon. Yummy margaritas at Margaritaville, nothing really to see snorkeling but was fun hanging out in the water. Had some drinks appies at Ricks Cafe, entertainment was enjoyable. Would do it again? Probably. Just don’t get your expectations too high, just enjoy the day!🤷🏼‍♀️

          Club Mobay Totally Worth It
          When we arrived at Montego Bay Airport it was total chaos but right around the corner was a gentleman holding a sign with our name on it. He helped us maneuver customs and immigration. Before we knew it we had our luggage and sat having a cool drink in Club Mobay Lounge. He then went to check on our transportation to Negril. That's where the experience took a small turn. I needed to go to the desk even though they had all my information. The young woman at the desk was sitting on a chair leaning against the wall. She could not bother to get up even though I had difficulty understanding her. Finally, I had my paperwork for my round-trip private transportation. I was told as soon as I was finished with my drink in the club I could exit the airport and someone with a Holiday Services shirt would be there to help us to our car. As we exited we did not see anyone from the company to help. We waited a while to see if someone would show up. Finally, I went back inside to the Holiday Services desk to inquire where our car was. The young woman told me again that there was someone outside to help which I stated clearly there wasn't. She came outside and after looking and finding no one called for a car. Fifteen minutes after that we were finally on the road to Negril. The drivers for Holiday Services were excellent it was the administration/on-site services that were lacking. The Mobay Departure lounge was as good as the arrival one. There was excellent service and comfort.

          Private tour with Andre
          We had a lovely tour with Andre. He answered all our annoying questions. We really enjoyed the tour of Rose Hall. We were expecting a group tour and it ended as a private tour.

          Very knowledgeable and funny!! Super nice tour guide. We ventured through the main parts of Montego Bay, through the markets. The Rose House has an interesting history. It’s been pretty well restored/preserved.

          Great communication
          Unfortunately because of a cold front that really made the sea angry we didn't get to go, however I am leaving a 5 star review because since the moment I booked it they were great to communicate that they were not able to do it on the day I requested and moved it to the next day. As soon as they knew the water wasn't going to be good for the next day they let me know and I was able to cancel and get a refund.

          Kevin Virgo was our driver, he made sure we were safe, comfy & happy. He was very pleasant & helpful. We didn’t know where our hotel was & he found it. Even helped us locate the hotel attendant when we arrived late. I’m definitely using this shuttle service again! Thanks Kevin!

          Not what I thought it would be.
          It rained buckets the day before. It was a full moon the day we went to the Lagoon. Maybe this impacted the less than overwhelming luminescent. If the photographer takes your photo, it will appear a little luminescent, but to the naked eye, you are basically not seeing a darn thing. I would have thought the boat would have made luminescence, but it did not. Also it took the arm movement and great photo to show what you see in these pictures. It was NOT what I thought it would be. The muck under your feet is horrifying, lol but that is the environment for this awesome to grow (salt/fresh water mix). Again, great it's cheap for a trip, but pretty underwhelming.

          Private tour - Negril beach & Ricks Cafe
          We actually opted for a private transfer (taxi) rather than party boat - Rolando was our driver and he took us to Negril and stopped off at some local shops for us to pick up souvenirs. Would highly recommend this option if you want a quieter day - Also ask for Rolando to be the driver as he was great!

          Rafting experience
          It started off a bad day as we were strugglig with the traffic due to a cable that had come down. Our driver Rolando did his best to get us to our location. Once we arrived Rolando booked us in and eventually turning up with our life jackets for the start of our amazing trip down the river. Rolando was waiting at the end of our tour to return us back to the hotel.... Great driver and he was also very attentive..... Good luck with the gym 🏋️‍♂️ 💪 Rolando...

        A fantastic trip with Damion. Picked up up from the hotel vehicle was clean and tidy. Damion gave us a guided tour on the journey pointing out landmarks and interesting facts. When we arrived at the Falls Damion took us in and handed us over to our guide. He then waited and collected us when we had finished. Damion then took us shopping and after visiting the first shop asked us what we were interested in buying ,then took us to a local craft market and went around the market keeping an eye on us when the sellers got a bit lively ! He made us feel very safe in the market it’s not somewhere we would have gone on our own but we were very glad he took us there as we made plenty of purchases!
        An excellent tour thank you very much and thank you to Omar for arranging it all for us

        The guide was very personable and made the excursion a blast. They are hilarious and did a really good job bringing the group together. Definitely pay the $40 on the photos and videos. They even have you trust fall backwards into a deep stop at the waterfall. So amazing!

        We booked this "tour" based on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. However, our experience with this tour was terrible! First it was printed on our voucher that pick up time would be 8:30 in the morning but the night before someone called our hotel and left a message that our pick up time would actually be 10:45am. We had already booked other activities in the afternoon so that messed up our schedule that day to begin with. What was even worst was that we were not picked up until 11:15am.
        When the minibus arrived, the minibus was already full and we had to sit in the middle folding seats with no seatbelts (seabelts were broken). After we had arrived the riverfall we were told that we had only 1 hour at the attraction and we could not even stop by to rent a locker for our stuff. We ended up only climb up half of the waterfall. No guided tour at all, the tour guide basically dropped us off at the bottom of the water fall and told us to climb up and meet him at the parking lot.

        We did the Dunn’s River Falls Half day Tour for $39pp. First off, the price is great for the experience you get!! We were picked up promptly and drove about 30mins from Runaway Bay to get to the destination. The air conditioning could have been better on the van but it wasn’t unbearable.

        After we were dropped off, we were introduced to another person who gave us great information and what to expect. However she then guided us mid way and informed us that we will meet our fall guide after a short walk. This part was a bit confusing as we were expecting someone to greet us but we rented our lockers, and then had to figure out ourselves that we had to get on the regular line and join other groups for our fall guide. The fall itself was great. You have to be very careful to not slip but the fall guide helps along the tougher parts. Make sure you bring watershoes and waterproof cases for your phone! But if you forget, they are available for purchase at $10/each. You will have many opportunities to take pictures on your own but a videographer will follow your group for recording. You can purchase them for $40 at the end of the tour.

        After your tour, make sure you go to the little hut across from the locker rental area to have their beef patty!! It was the best I’ve had throughout my trip in Jamaica.

        I absolutely did not like the part where you HAVE TO walk through a small shopping area to exit the falls. You are not guided through this area and had to fend for ourselves as we weren’t interested in any souvenirs and the “hustlers” were not happy about it. But that was all worth it because of the experience up the Dunn’s River.

        Although it is a half day trip, we were only allowed a little more than an hour to enjoy the park. I wish we had a bit more time to appreciate the views of the entire property but all in all, it was a great experience for a reasonable price.

        Dunn's River Falls is a beautiful attraction.
        Got there early around 10:30 to avoid the rush.
        Managed to climb the falls without a guide. It is a wonderful way to cool off, the water is so clear. The climb took about 45 minutes
        Spent another hour touring the beautiful resort before we head back.
        Highly recommend rubber shoes to climb the falls and water proof cover for camera/phone.

        Dunn's River Falls is a fantastic attraction to cool off and see the natural beauty of Jamaica. The guides really help you climb the falls safely and securely. Our driver, Bernard, was a wonderfully kind person who educated us on the history of Jamaica. Wonderful way to get outside and experience the Ocho Rios area.

        Like many things in Jamaica you are treated as wallet, from Ocho Rios to the falls any shared taxi will take you for 5 dollars (they'll start with 10 of course) and 5 dollars back. A tour agency will charge you 35 dollars so 25 dollars to wait maybe one hour so forget about enjoying the beach. The ticket boxs used to be further inside but in that way you'd enjoy the beach for free, can you imagine? So now you pay 25 DOLLARS just to enter and the supposedly necessary guides, the guides will be very nice until you don't tip them. Then it's 10 DOLLARS for the watershoes and if you want a locker 10 dollars more, the lockers have no surveillance and of course if anything is stolen they take no responsability. So 45 dollars to see a small waterfall, what a great bussiness, right? keep treating tourists like that you'll see the outcome
