Had heard negative comments from previous visitors to Jamaica. Our trip to Falmouth was nothing but positive! We booked our tour in the beautiful, bustling port terminal. Our guides (I wish I remembered their names) were so very nice and knowledgeable. We traveled through old town and learned much about the area's heritage, passed several churches hearing the history of... More

I really wanted to know more the history of Falmouth so I chose to go on the walking tour. I'm not really adventurous so a lot of the excursions that were offered did not resonate with me. There were about 10+ other people with me on the tour coming off the Royal Caribbean ship on 7-28-16. We had 3 guides... More

Our tour guide was Dayna who was hands down the best tour guide we had to show us around Jamaica. Since it was just my wife, my cousin and I she was more flexible to show us real Jamaica from the people we met along the way and most importantly the food! Dayna showed us a peanut porridge that was... More

I like to see something at a port other than the same old shops and touristy places. Our friendly and knowledgeable guide Simone and her colleague (Dana, I think?) took us on a two hour walking tour at a leisurely pace. It was hot but there were places to find shade, we had water, and there was a break about... More

Once we finally found our guide Sanya - we weren't sure WHICH information booth she was at, we had a great walking tour of the city. Sanya, who apparently knows everyone in Falmouth, was extremely knowledgeable about the architecture and the buildings, but also explained much of the history of the city and surrounding parish, including some surprising facts about...

This is an excellent excursion for anyone who wants to sample the real Jamaica in a short time. Our guide, Simone, walked us through the town as she explained the rich history and traditions of this beautiful country. Since it was a Friday afternoon Falmouth was buzzing with folks doing their shopping, meeting friends or just relaxing over a game... More

The pick up from Port went very smooth. Our group consisted only of 4 visitors and 1 guide. It was like a private tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and friendly guiding us through town. Ensuring that we didn't get hit by a car. All locals greated her, which made the tour more special. Little local stories and history from... More

Simone and Chantel were wonderful. Simone was the lead on our walking tour and she did a great job explaining the history behind each place we stopped. The tour was exactly what we were looking to do, we didn't want to just stay in the port area, and it allowed us to see more of life in Jamaica than we... More
