If you have heard of Dunns River but do not want the crowds, have Barrett Adventures take you to the Secret Falls... The waterfalls are gorgeous, the guides are great, the rope swings, cliff jumping into pools of blue water was a great day away from the resort. There were few people, which was great, and the driver was most... More

I booked a full day trip on the Lark on 25 May as a surprise for my girlfriend's birthday and I had also informed Carolyn Barrett that I wanted to propose to my girlfriend. Carolyn made sure that we had a truly amazing trip and unforgettable experience. First she took us snorkelling at a nice reef. Then we did some... More

My husband and I booked a tour with Carolyn to the Old Tavern Coffee Estate. It was definitely the best experience we had in Jamaica! She was knowledgable about SO much and was great to talk to! We went on a 3 hour hike through the plantation and down to a waterfall. She makes it "your day" and will try... More

Our group of 6 (including 2 children ages 9 and 16) went on the Secret Falls tour which also included tubing; this turned out to be so much better than expected. My husband and I have been to Jamaica a few times already and already visited Dunn's River. I would recommend this over Dunn's River tour. It was much more... More

This was a great morning. We were four adults and a child on the Lark for the morning. The snorkeling was amazing and so much better than being jam packed with a tourist group of 50 people. We were picked up at the port and traveled in Carolyn's van and finding her was smooth and east. We had cold drinks... More

I have thought a lot about posting this review. It may only help a minority of visitors who wish to stray off the well-trodden touristy routes. Carolyn (Barrett) took me herself, and I did ask to see a specific off-the-beaten track location, albeit one that I know many others have visited. The problem was, we never got there. I was... More

Carolyn B, Owner at Barrett Adventures, responded to this review

This gentleman asked to go to Barbecue Bottom, which is at the bottom of a trail that leads to Albert Town. The fact that some birders are calling another place barbecue bottom was not exactly my fault and as soon as I did learn that he meant a different location, I offered to take him there. I also did discount... More

My girlfriends and I went to Jamaica on a cruise and booked with Barrett Adventures for 2 days of touring and adventures. From the very first contact with Carolyn by email to the last day of our tours, EVERYTHING was professional and spectacular. Our driver was timely, courteous, funny and caring! We were catered to and the price for the... More

We used Barrett Adventures 2 years ago so when we were going on a cruise again that went back to Jamaica it was a no brainer to use Barrett Adventures again and of course we had Richard as our Guide again. We could not have asked for a better adventure for our family which this time my 76 year old... More

Our day in Jamaica with Barrett Adventures was by far the best day we had on our cruise. Hiking through the secret falls then tubing down the river was the perfect way to spend a day in Jamaica.

Spending the day with Barrett Adventures was easily the most rewarding part of my cruise experience. We were picked up promptly and taken directly to our tour, where we were given one of the best tours I've ever been on. The waterfalls were beautiful, the tour guides were more than experienced, and the atmosphere of the whole area was magical.... More
