My family and I opted for the Croydon Plantation tour as a way to see something other than beaches and as an educational experience for our young son. We very much enjoyed this day trip.

I did a tour of the Croydon Estate along with my family on a recent trip to Montego Bay Jamaica. It was an amazing experience. Alicia was one of our tour guides and gave us a `running commentary`` about the areas we were going through and the history which was great. When we arrived at the Plantation Winston took over...

Although the Croydon tour wasn't what I thought it would be as I figured we'd tour a plantation house, our guide Winston was awesome. He was very knowledgeable yet kept it fun with a lot of jokes and banter.

The plantation is impressive, we had Alicia as one of our tour guides and she is so "knowing" and gracious about explaining everything to us all. They serve a very nice lunch at the end of the tour and also refreshing drinks that hit the spot in the heat.

We wanted our kids to see Jamaica from a non-all inclusive resort perspective. The bus ride alone was an educational experience as we straddled narrow roads through traditional Jamaican towns and houses. Our tour guide Winston was a well-rounded package of facts, quips, local knowledge, and pride for his home country. He was perfect for children and adults and kept... More

My wife and I visited Croydon today, we thought it was very informative and beautiful. Alcia was our guide and she's simply fantastic! We even had the chance to meet and speak to the owner, he was very engaging and enjoyable. We would encourage the tour, it takes a while to get there, but the scenic ride and historical information... More

This is a trip that I think would suit older people, we stopped on route at a school- not sure if disturbing the children with regular visits is good. The plantation trip could be shortned to half a day without the lunch. Saying that the trip was worth doing , very informative on coffee , pineapples and other fruit. Seeing... More

This was an amazing trip. Alicia was our tour guide and she is full of knowledge. We learned a lot about Jamaica and the Plantation. First, the trip by bus takes approximately 2 hours through beautiful, winding, mountain roads. The roads are not well maintained, but the drivers are wonderful. Just relax and enjoy the stunning scenery. When reach the... More

We have been on plantation tours before and both my husband and I were disappointed with this one. There wasn't much history about the plantation and its changes over the years. Mostly gave info about the fruits and trees. Also not enough movement for kids. Too much taking a couple of steps and stopping for more talk about the trees.... More
