To hold a hummingbird was amazing!

I love birds and was so excited to visit this place. We had a private driver take us on this remote, exciting, beautiful journey up in the hills. The person in charge took our $20 per person, handed us each a little liquor bottle filled with sugar water, and directed us to sit. We did have a hummingbird light on... More

My wife & I visited on Tuesday, January 3rd. I had driven here myself in 1983 when I was a bachelor & it was a very pleasant & inexpensive little excursion, but now with the growth in population & related traffic in Montego Bay we decided to hire a taxi & not drive our rental car. The last mile or... More

Our hotel concierge arranged a driver and made reservations for six of us to visit the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary. The mountain road up to the property was very steep, narrow and bumpy, but we considered it to be part of the adventure. At the entrance we were met by the owner who quietly guided us into a covered patio area... More

A wonderful way to see hummingbirds and other birds up close and personal. The opportunity to feed the national bird of Jamaica and get a little insight into local plants and flowers.

A must do trip whilst in Jamaica . The views were amazing , but nothing in comparison to hand feeding the humming birds. We paid 20 dollars per person, and gave our knowledgeable guide a tip. The road leading up is steep and winding but worth the drive. We booked a taxi to take me and the girlfriend, rather than... More

Booked a personal tour through KEN GRACEY, DOCTORBIRD TOURS. After picking up us when we wanted, Ken took us where we wanted to go. Shopping, downtown Montego Bay, and Rocklands. Learned so much about the trees, plants and culture. The bird sanctuary was so peaceful and lovely! After a few moments, the hummingbirds come and feed. Ken took lots of... More

This is located in the hills outside Montego Bay right off the beaten tourist track and is so tranquil and peaceful. The amount of different species of birds that you see close up is incredible but the most amazing experience of all is to have five species of wild humming birds land on your finger and drink from small nectar...

Probably the most unique experience we have ever had. The birds come and sit on your finger. The guide is informative and knowledgable.

What can you expect from a guy in the middle of the forest that hasn't had company in the las century? He says you can feed the birds but they never come to you, besides there is plenty of food for them so it makes no sense to feed them. Not recommended at all.

It's very cool here nestled within big trees. Beautiful birds everywhere, including a variety of hummingbirds. Great photo-ops as they come pretty close to you. Wear bright colours. The birds will be more attracted to you that way. Great fun for all ages.
