This is a place of beauty and horror at the same time. Amazing staff and upkeep. The horrific history of slavery is shrouded by the colonial architecture, setting, and views.

It was a good walking tour. The story was interesting and kept us engaged. I would recommend it. The area where there were art work with the history was great. I learned a lot of things I did not know about slavery and Jamaica.

We were greeted by our tour guide Doltis, whom had a great knowledge of the mansion. If you are into history, scary tales and mystery this is a one hour tour of fun.

(I don't know that it was "Skip the Line" -- there was no line, we just went up to the place and bought tickets to get in.)

Had a fantastic tour of the Rose Hall Great House in May 2021 (during the pandemic.) We were staying at the Hilton Rose Hall, across Route A1, and just walked over, using golf cart paths, including a tunnel under the road (would definitely say that, if you would need to cross A1 to get there, take a cab!) The tour was $25 per person, and was personal (we didn't have to join another party.)

During the tour, you walk through the house, with the guide providing both the basic story of Annie Palmer (the White Witch) and information about the restoration of the Great House. At the end, you are taken out to the gardens, and to Annie Palmer's tomb.

What a tragic story! But only in the sense of the evil that Palmer had in her heart -- she may have been the product of a different age, but that doesn't forgive multiple murders, both of husbands, and of slaves.

Overall, a great experience of Jamaican history, and well worth the time and money!

(During the pandemic, additional steps were being taken, including temperature checks, required mask wearing, apart from outside photographs, and extra cleaning. We felt very safe.)

We had an incredible time visiting the Rose Hall Great House. The home was beautiful with all the flowers in full bloom it was hard to believe all the scary things that had happened there. Our tour guide Sancha was absolutely incredible, very accommodating and informative, she was such a sweetheart and an amazing guide! I would highly recommend this experience especially with Sancha as your guide.

We experienced this trip with a private driver by the name of Leon. He was nice enough after another excursion to run us by Rose Hall. Unfortunately night tours are not allowed right now so we didn’t get to experience the scariness. The day one there was no one inside or outside doing anything just the tour guide who was nice but seemed either tired, hot, on autopilot or a combination lol. It was still interesting nonetheless. Wish we could’ve caught it before Covid to experience what everyone speaks of. Very interesting info for sure.

Decided to go here since it was raining that day. Even though $25 was not expensive, I was disappointed. Even the cabdriver told me it was all bull#$&*! A quick way to make money for Mr. Rollins who restored the house for 2.5 million dollars back in 1960. Previous reviews state they felt spooky? Cmon it’s a joke. They were selling jewellery and hand carved trinkets outside. When we first entered, there’s a bar where you can buy a drink starting at $12. Really? Anyway other than a few antiques, it was a waste of time and money.

Good day, Thank you for taking the time out to share your review with us. We are sorry that you felt this way about the tour experience and that your first impression of a part of our country's rich history was soiled by a cabdriver who perhaps have never done the tour or cared enough to research any part of our colonial history in Jamaica. The reviews that stated that our tour was spooky were referring to our night tour as this tour experience offers more than just a historical walk through of the house. We thank you for also sharing your feedback with us as we welcome the ability to improve the tour experience for all our guests.

We stayed at Hyatt Zilara resort nearby so it was a 5 minute ride to the Rose Hall great house. I wasn't sure this would be worth the time but really enjoyed the ghost tour. You gather to start the tour where a Jamaican drum is being played around a candle and it made me feel like I was in an old James Bond movie.

You get to take pictures in front of the Mansion but no photography inside. With the help of some actors this tour had all of us looking behind our backs at every turn. The history is very interesting and you can't help but think about the horrible conditions the slaves endured on this land. Annie was a horrendous person no doubt. You get to tour the dungeon. which has a bar on one side of it with a bartender who does his best to get you to buy a drink.

It is a lot of fun....but I wouldn't recommend it for kids under probably 12 or so. There was a young boy of about 7 in our group who held it together for the 1st 10 minutes but then he lost it in the Mansion and his Mom had to take him home he was so scared.

It was well worth the money to me.
