Ok, so I'm a sucker for ghosts, hauntings, and nefarious affairs. Our guide was excellent and patient as she gave the tour in English, the excursion guide translated to Spanish. More Spanish speaking than English, but I don't think the Estate guide spoke Spanish. Ambiance...More

We had arranged a tour for two ($50) from Montego Bay. Surprisingly no tour bus, but a late model Mercedes. The tour is quite detailed and lasts about an hour. There is some historic leeway taken, but it is generally accurate. The guide was knowledgeable...More

I have to start this review by saying that it’s a really well-restored plantation house with a compelling legend, and the night tour would’ve been worth it for myself, my 12-year-old daughter who enjoys haunted houses with jump scares and my husband if we’d come...More

Rose Hall Great House Tour - Worth the time? (3 Replies)
I'm going to be staying at the Ritz Carlton Rose Hall in December and was thingking of doing the Rose Hall great house tour. Has anyone done this and can you let me know if it was worth it? Thanks!

I did this in 2003 and it was definitely worth it. I didn't see any ghosts though. If you're in that area, it might be worth visiting Greenwood Great House as well.

Does anyone know of a website that I can pre-book a tour of the Rose Hall Great House/White Witch Tour, including transport from my MoBay resort...I can't seem to find one. The only one I scrounged up was absolutely outrageous. Thanks!!!

Rose Hall and Chukka tours - amazing! (23 Replies)
Just came back from a wonderful week at Rose Hall resort. Our boys were with us - age 10, 12, 14. We toured the Rose Hall Great House and did the Canopy Tour and Sea Trek with Chukka Tours. We would highly recommend all three excursions! Ignore the negative reviews - go with a positive attitude and your week will be unforgettable! We will certainly return to Jamaica, and will probably return to Rose Hall in 2 years to see the upgrades.
