We had booked the wet tour , already explained by previous reviewers. What a marvellous experience. We loved every minute, Levi was the most amazing guide and his love for his island shone through. His knowledge of all the flora and fauna and detail about the things we saw made it all so interesting. The snorkelling at Champagne Reef was outstanding not just the fish of course but those amazing bubbles. The swim at the Gorge which had worried me a bit proved to be yet another great part of the trip. The highlight for our party of four however was the half hour we spent in the natural hot spring near the falls, magical!
Our thanks to the wonderful Levi, we will never forget our day with him and hopefully we will come back one day for another'bumping' tour

We took the Roseau Valley Treasures tour a couple of weeks ago. Our tour guide was Gary and while we enjoyed the tour, it would have been much better if Gary gave us more information about the island. What information he did give was lost to us as there was no speaker system in the van and we were sitting in the back row. The Champagne snorkeling tour was so much better than I expected based upon some reviews here in Trip Advisor. I've been snorkeling in the Keys and in Mexico and we saw so much more on this trip. It was well worth doing and the gentleman who took over for Gary and escorted us during the snorkeling portion of the tour was exceptional (sorry I forgot his name) and very helpful (and yes, we did see the bubbles). The Titou Gorge was veeery busy but Gary played the whole thing just right and waited it out. Once the various groups left, we were pretty much on our own. The tour was good - just felt cheated because we didn't learn very much about the island.

I had booked the Middleham falls, Trafalgar Falls and Titou Gorge with Champagne Reef (if there was time) unfortunately couldn't get enough interest for this tour so had to eliminate Middleham Falls. Though are plans were changed we still had a great day and would highly recommend Levi. He responded quickly to emails and did not require payment till the end of the tour which made me feel better (as you never know when you book online if the person will show up for you or not) He was waiting exactly where he said he would be. 1st stop was Champagne Reef it was a neat thing to see but more amazing to us was how Levi could just free dive to the bottom (30ft) and point out different things in the water. Next we did Titou Gorge (he said it was refreshing I say it was down right cold!) He had us wear a life belt which I highly recommend I am not a strong swimmer and I decided to jump the small jump there which was a mistake! I'm not sure if it was fear, cold or the current or all 3 but when I came up could not catch my breath which made me panic and went under again. Thankfully my hubby jumped in behind me and held me up till they threw Levis life ring to me! I would definitely wear my regular life jacket next time just for my peace of mind! We thought people was crazy going in with no life belt or jacket! The next stop was Trafalgar Falls and a soak in the warm water. Overall we had a great day and think Dominica is one of the best islands so far and we've been to quite a few! Hubby already has said he'd like to take our young adult kids with us and go do this again with maybe the Middleham Falls next time. Way to go Levi for the awesome day! Hope to see you again!!

We booked with Bumpiing Tours after reading all the good reviews on trip advisor. Levi responded very promptly to my emails, which was also encouraging. Our tour guides were Asha and Kashma. We started our tour at the botanic gardens. Very pretty flowers and the smashed bus was very interesting. We next headed to the Champagne Reef. I chose not to snorkel, but my friend went in. It's not really a good area to be lounging because it's primarily big rocks on the side. A guy in our group went in just to swim without snorkel gear and just brushed a rock with his hand and ended up with sea urchin spikes in his finger. We then went on to Titou Gorge. The water is pretty chilly. Definitely recommend wearing shoes, because the initial pool you go into has lots of uneven rocks to walk on. You swim through this dark cave like area and we were told to go to the side and find the ledge to step on. My friend was looking for the ledge and managed to slip off and sprain her ankle. You swim a little further and come upon this waterfall. Asha started helping people up the waterfall. I was not able to make it up, because the current was pretty strong and I kept slipping down. What he didn't tell everyone is that the only way down from the waterfall is to jump down. So, in hindsight, I'm glad I didn't make it up :). Next we went to hot springs. Very warm water, but a bit of a hike to get there. The experience was fun, but I would say you need to be in decent shape to get through it easily. They also do not provide food or any real place to stop for food, so make sure you bring a lunch.

My wife and I and our two boys (ages 23 and 16) booked our tour on Dominica with Bumpiing Tours and it was one of the highlights of our weeklong Caribbean cruise. First of all, Levi Baron was very responsive via email to our inquiries about the tour. He answered all of my questions and helped us determine the best tour for us. Secondly, he wants to make sure you have the best experience exploring his island. He is very involved throughout the tour - going snorkeling with you and pointing out unique underwater sights; he jumps in and swims with you at Titou Gorge; he sits with you in the hot springs, etc. There is no doubt that Levi takes great pride in his beautiful, lush island and wants to make sure you have an extraordinary experience while visiting. He is very attentive to his tour group and makes sure everyone is comfortable throughout the day. I strongly encourage you to visit Dominica - a beautiful and unique island - and to ask Levi to be your host while you are there. We had a wonderful day with Levi!
