Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    After morning pickup from your Montego Bay hotel or the cruise ship pier, relax during the scenic 2-hour drive to your first destination, the Appleton Estate, located in St Elizabeth Parish in Nassau Valley.
    Known as the oldest sugar estate and distillery in Jamaica, the Appleton Estate's first documented rum production dates back to 1749. Take a 1.5-hour guided tour of the property that explains the history of rum production in Jamaica, and details the sugarcane varieties, yeast used for fermentation, and distillation and blending methods. See copper stills in the distillery and oak barrels in the ageing room, and sample the full range of Jamaican rums to top off your tour.
    Next up, head further into Nassau Valley to reach the the YS Estate, which hosts a working farm along with YS Falls and other attractions. Hop aboard a tractor-pulled jitney that takes you to YS Falls — a series of seven waterfalls that cascade into natural pools. You can cool off in the natural waterfall pools and a 4-foot (1.2-meter) deep wading pool that is surrounded by a patio and garden. Other activities include a canopy zipline tour and tubing rides on the river. Lifeguards are on duty.
    The Estate has a restaurant where you can purchase lunch, in addition to changing rooms, environmentally-friendly restrooms. Your tour ends with drop-off at your starting point in Montego Bay at the end of your full-day tour.

    Awesome day tour up to YS Falls and Appleton Estate. Georgia and her driver gave us insights into the people and places of Jamaica that we wouldn't have gotten on a tour bus. We felt safe and secure the whole trip. Would highly recommend!
