My husband, my daughter, her boyfriend and I, took this tour while on a Royal Caribbean cruise. This tour advertises for Ocho Rios area. Our ship was in Falmouth, Jamaica. I emailed Neil at Wilderness Tours about two weeks before our trip departure and he replied a few hours later. He said we would have to pay a driver/guide to pick us up at the pier in Falmouth and bring us to Ocho Rios and the driver would, of course, bring us back to Falmouth. The arrangements were made and it was like clockwork. NO PROBLEM. We met with our driver, Andre, at approximately 8:45 am in the pier parking lot. Andre was our driver/guide and he was great. First of all, if you have toured before, you know how bad some of the transportation can be. No air conditioning, lots of other people and sometimes making stops to pick up other people. This is a PRIVATE van and it is air conditioned and is really a nice ride.
We got to the ATV outpost in Ocho Rios in about an hour and Neil was there along with Damian, our ATV guide. They took such good care of us. Safety first and a test drive around the parking lot and then the fun begins. The ride up the mountain was the highlight of our cruise. Awesome !! The ATV's were very easy to ride. Damian leads the way and he is so cool all the way up. The view from the top is just beautiful. We spent a little time at the top and then it was time to head back down the mountain. I can't explain just how much fun this is. Winding road and great scenery.
We did both the ATV and the Dunn River Falls. Neil rode with Andre and us over to the Falls, which was only a block away, and then Neil took over as our guide. He knew every foot of the Falls. He explained to us how to climb and where to climb and he also took our cameras to take pictures for us. Awesome !! Neil is so nice, polite and very informative as well. We had another great time at the Falls.
You don't have to worry about whether you are going to be late getting back to the pier. They were fully aware of what time to get us back. Again, No Problem. We were back in plenty of time. In fact, we wanted a Red Stripe beer and Andre stopped at a place along the way and we got one. So refreshing and good.
If you like to ride ATV's and do the beautiful Falls... you will LOVE this tour. These guys ROCK. The whole thing actually cost less than some of the other tours that the ship offers. And ours was a Private tour with all the attention on US.
