A friend and I used the services of Sun Venture Tour Company in Easter of 2012 to get to the peak of the Blue Mountains. After some research we contacted Sun Ventures and received prompt replies to all our queries. We chose the Blue Mountain Peak Sunrise Tour. We were picked up a little after 2p.m at our hotel in New Kingston as stated in the itinerary. The rep took the remainder of our payment and our driver Paul showed up shortly after. The ride up to Whitfield Hall took a little over 2 hours. The guide pointed out various areas, stopped as requested for photos especially when my friend got excited about seeing a goat. He got some mangoes which he shared with us. Once we arrived at Whitfield arrangements were made to come back after 1am to begin our hike-initially there wasn’t certainty as to whom would be our guide. See my review of Whitfield Hall for details on our overnight stay there-it was great, cool rusty spot to bunk for a couple hours. Our hike began at around 1:30am and geez what a work out! Paul always had our back and we stopped and went at our own pace. We saw other hikers along the way especially towards the last trek. The guide had his little radio playing during points of the trip and one of the best moments was singing along to Bob Marley’s One Love-surprised I had the strength to sing!. I started hiking about 2 months prior to the trip and this was a very tough hike especially Jacob’s Ladder but all the pain and sweat was worth it. Finally reaching the Peak was the most amazing experience-the view and just the fact that we made it up all 7400+ feet! We spent about half hour at the top and there was no rush, our trek down was great because at least now we could see everything we missed on the way up in the dark. He pointed out plants, birds-we spot a hummingbird and took pictures along the way. On arrival back to Whitfield Hall we had breakfast (this was the only glitch-the itinerary said brunch was included; however we were told this isn’t the case that is if you arrive later than we did-around 11 and so we paid). At this point we didn’t care and felt that for the price everything was really a bargain. Plus we were still high from having made it to the peak and back alive!!! Our trip back to our hotel-also by Paul wasn’t eventful as we somehow managed to both passout despite the very bumpy ride. We’d like to thank Paul for being such a wonderful guide and recommend Sun Venture Tours based on our experience.

It was my first visit to Jamaica. Now having had a lot of unpleasant stories and perspectives about the country, I wasn't so sure of what to expect, but i was optimistic it wouldn't be a bad vacation.

I got in contact with Sun Ventures and was given an experience of a lifetime! i left Jamaica more aware of my roots, black history and with my mind totally renewed and inspired to impact my community.

Sun Ventures staff crew were hospitable, highly intellectual and well informed. They made me feel all the great stuffs within, and i sure promised to make a return trip with friends and family.

I strongly recommend their services to anyone interested to explore the beauty and amazing culture of Jamaica.

Our group of university students have used Sun Venture Tours for three consecutive years to hike in the Jamaican Alps. The company is professional and organized and we have enjoyed our time with Kay and her colleagues very much.

I recommend using Sun Venture Tours if you want a local, authentic Jamaican experience.

We were there for the Sunrise experience and unfortunately it was rainy and could not get to see the sunrise. The lodge was fantastic! Everton our Host was an excellent cook, try the chicken, the best chicken that I ever had! We went in a group of 11 and did the tour to the top, it was tired but worth it. I need to go back and will sure do.
What you need to bring is a table game just in case you have some time, don't carry beer, you can buy it there and its not pricey. It is a safe place, you feel nature and safety, and people there is really friendly.

My friend and I spent 10 days travelling around Jamaica and the Blue Mountain overnight hike was a true highlight. We called up on the day we wanted to book the tour and Robert and the team were amazing at getting everything organised for us at the last minute. Even bringing us an extra headtorch! The tour is professionally organised and we felt very well looked after with the pick up / drop off at our hotel in Kingston providing a door-to-door service. Our Tour Guide was amazing and ensured our group paced the hike and was patient and motivational. At the summit, the views were truly exceptional, breath-taking and a real ‘wow’ moment. We had lots of time to take photos and talk with our guide. I would highly recommend this tour and I am so pleased we had the opportunity to experience this as part of our Jamaican adventure. Thank you.

An excellent hike through the beautiful cockpit country. It was a really serene environment with the hike done at a moderate pace accompanied by an excellent commentary from our host Robert, which allowed us to understand the history, geography, flora, and fauna of the area

We embarked on the High Blue 2 tour with Robert. Everything was planned to perfection. His knowledge and passion of the mountains is something to be admired. Our lunch view was picturesque. We loved the days outing and are sure to be back. Thank you Robert for showing us a slice of Jamaica!
