This was my first time experiencing the caves and it was very educational and interesting. The tour guide was great. It was small but I really enjoyed it. Must be able to walk up and down stairs.

Went on this tour with a group of colleagues. This was a remarkable experience. Very informative tour. The way the rocks formed natural images is so amazing. Our tour guide Tafari did an awesome job. He is very knowledgeable and made the tour an entertaining and educational one. I will definitely recommend this tour to my guests.

The Green Grotto Caves are fascinating and fun to learn about while caving through. There are interesting stories of the caves and its history. When you go visiting, just remember not to scream when the bats get too friendly and come over to say hi. I enjoyed the experience.

This is a must do on any short list of cultural and historic sites in Jamaica. The Green Grotto Caves were once used as a sanctuary for runaway slaves, a hideout and escape route for Spanish soldiers trying to escape capture from the English, and a night club, until it was deemed a National Landmark and became a guided part...

Took this tour as part of a cruise shore excursion. Chedd made the history of this cave system very interesting. From runaway slaves to Bond films to a night club and now a tourist attraction. Quite an enjoyable walk in spite of a rainy day.

From a historical perspective, these caves are significant and the story is interesting. From a visual perspective, these caves are not very appealing in my opinion, having seen several other cave attractions in other countries.These ones are really quite bland. Our guide was friendly, but it felt like he was trying too hard. In all fairness, I would not go... More

We weren't exactly sure what to expect a green cave? a wet cave? But it was neither. The tour guide made the excursion entertaining and fun. Lots of history. Be prepared to cover your hair with a hairnet and hard hat. In some areas the ceiling is low and you may get a bump on the head if you're not... More

If you go on your own ( not with a tour ) admission is $20 per person and $12 for children up to and including 12 years old. You can purchase snacks and there is a small gift shop. You will go as a group on a tour and hear the history of the caves which are not extremely hot... More
