Our plan was to eat a great local breakfast, climb Dunn's River Falls, and then squeeze as much into the rest of our day as possible, including eating local whenever we could. We made arrangements with Carolyn over email, who was very accommodating and let us put a deposit down using PayPal. Richard Woolary picked us up at our resort... More

We booked 2 trips with Barrett Adventures via email a few weeks before we arrived in Jamaica. Carolyn was always very quick to reply to my messages and queries, offering advice for the days. Our first trip was arranged for Monday, unfortunately our son fell ill on Saturday with a tummy bug, by Sunday he was still very weak and... More

Me and my husband were on a cruise and one of the stops was Jamaica. After spending many hours here on tripadvisor looking up the different excursions offered and the many different companies I decided to book with Barrett Adventures. (Thanks to everyone who writes reviews, it helps so much!) Now back to my review, I booked the secret falls/... More

I spent 6 nights in Jamaica with my wife for our honeymoon. In the weeks leading up to our trip I exchanged almost 60 emails with Carolyn as we figured out the itinerary for the trip. We ended up doing: the Old Tavern Estate, snorkeling on the lark, the private horseback tour at Braco stables, and a couple other things... More

This was the highlight of our break in Jamaica. We spent a half day with Carolyn and Harry on the Lark. We snorkelled, sailed and messed around jumping off the boat. They were both great and we shared some good stories, drank some Red Stripe, ate some mango and generally chilled out. There were 6 of us with children ranging... More

Carolyn was awesome. From my first email to her she was super responsive and good at thinking and recommending what would work for our family (party of 5 with 3 kids - 12, 8, 2). We decided to do the Mayfield Falls and Tubing excursion. Our driver Lockslee was on time and super with us. He was telling us al... More

Carolyn is more or less a rockstar, let's start with that! So accommodating, easy to reach via email. She was even able to sort out an incorrect day/date we were given. Arranged for a waterfalls tour and drive to other side of island. Carolyn herself was our driver, and she has so many stories about the island that the drive... More

We had an absolute blast in our sailing and snorkel trip!!! We booked in advance, which I highly recommend. Carolyn fills her schedule quickly because she is amazing! The pick up was on time, Richard, our driver was great. He even stopped on the way home and showed us a great place to eat. The snorkeling was perfect, tons of... More

14 members of my family recently vacationed in Montego Bay. We booked an excursion to tour Mayfield Falls and Tube down the Yardee River. We couldn't say enough about Mayfield Falls!!! We ranged in ages from 14-75 and everyone loved it! Our tour guides, Dennis and Lester, were absolutely amazing. They knew every stone and rock in the river. It... More
