We did a full-day tour which included Appleton Rum Estate and the Pelican Bar. We were picked up promptly at 9 a.m. by Garth, our Jamaican tour guide, who drove and accompanied us all day 'til we returned to our resort at about 8 p.m. Garth was a gem; personable, talkative, and took great care of us and the other couple who went on the tour. Besides our two planned destinations, Garth stopped and bought some raw sugar cane for us to sample, stopped at a roadside stand where we had parrot fish and bammy bread for lunch, stopped so we could sample some local crawfish, etc. etc. While driving, it was very interesting to talk with this young, intelligent Jamaican man on all sorts of topics. He really made the day special.
Both destinations were fun- Appleton was interesting and informative (and if you drink all the rum punch and various types of rum they keep offering you, it's quite an inebriating experience as well!) and the Pelican Bar was just spectacular (a driftwood hut several miles offshore, accessible only by boat, where you can swim, drink, and eat the "catch of the day" prepared over an open fire).
And on top of it all, a couple of days after returning home, we received an e-mail with a ton of photos Garth took of us and our various stops throughout the day.
The car was also stocked with cold water, beer, and rum punch, and on our way back to the resort from our last stop, we and the other couple on the tour drank several toasts to a wonderful day in Jamaica.
All in all, I HIGHLY recommend JuJu Tours- they were top notch, start to finish.
