“Bob Marley Zion Bus Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

A must-do! You get picked up in a the super cool Zion Bus that is covered with photos and facts all about Bob and his life. Our tour guide was hilairous, high-energy, but also very informative. We listened to great tunes all the way up to Nine Mile, the birth and resting spot of Bob Marley. The trip up there is wild......you travel on a one lane wide road, and I use the word road losely, with traffice going both ways! The driver uses his horn to warn on-coming traffic at blind corners and I must say it is a little nerve racking at first but once you settle in, it just becomes part of the adventure and you tune out the honking! Our guide told us horns are better than breaks!!! LOL Once you arrive at Nine Mile, your host or guide entertains you, tells you stories about Bob, takes you to the house he grew up in and the resting place of him and his mother. It is a great tour and his resting place is filled with peace and tranquility, but there is also lots of great laughs along the way too. This was my second favorite excurision we did, second only to Dolphin Cove. Go have fun, learn a bit of Jamacian history and reggae culture. You will love it. The tour includes a patty stop on the way up and a great lunch on the way down, definitely worth the price!

“Cruise/ Snorkeling/ Dunns River Fall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2012

I went on this tour with three other ladies. We had so much fun. I can't swim but, I still went snorkeling. The Falls was incredible. After that we got back on the boat and ate, drank, and danced. What more can you ask for!!! The crew was great. It was worth the money.

“Dolphin Cove”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

Wow! What an experience! Garfield at the Royal Plantation booked us the 2 dolphin swim, which included a fin pull, nose pushes up out of the water and kisses from the dolphins. It was fantastic! Also included was snorkelling, getting up close with a stingray and not forgetting the shark show - it was all terrifc fun and well worth the cost. Definitely recommend this trip and we will certainly be going back for more.

“Mislead about tour”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

We just finished a tour with Island Routes that was supposed to include a ride through fern gully then to a coffee plantation, then to Dunn's River Falls in Ochos Rios, Jamaica . What we got instead was a very bumpy ride up a hill to their facility to hopefully buy soveniers, then to Dunn's River Falls. We all complained that this was not what we paid for, our guide, who was very nice, said we had to take it up with management. That was no help. The person who worked at the hotel could have cared less, and said to email the company. We did, with no response. Avoid this company at all costs.

“Chukka tours Ochos Rios”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

My family stayed at Beaches Boscobel and signes up for a few Island Route tours, which were all GREAT!! My only complaint is that the Chukka tour, river tubing and zipline combo, we NEEDED bug spray / repellant! Seriously, were eaten alive by mosquitos!
Our Island tour rep. didn't include it on the list of what to bring.

Other than that is was wonderful... the water is a little cool, but is it sooo refreshing and relaxing! The guides did a great job!
Would do this tour again in a heartbeat, but bring bug spray.
