We had a small tour bus with a small group of tourists from several countries and a wonderful guide, which made for an excellent day. As the other reviews have said, the plantation was gorgeous! Lush vegetation, hummingbirds, wonderful, fresh fruit samples, and an explanation of how different herbs and plants are used. Winston, the guide, was very interesting and could answer any question that was brought forth.
The trip to and from the plantation was an experience in itself. The winding, narrow road was an adventure, but we had a great driver, who was also very knowledgeable, so no worries. We did get to see how the people in the area lived, saw the school children getting out of school, and the workers on the plantation in their roles on the property.
This trip will really open the eyes of the tourist, who like me, stayed on a resort other than when on an excursion. I was very glad to be able to see reality.
The owner of the plantation came out and met us while we had an excellent chicken barbeque (jerk chicken). We did have that wonderful Blue Mountain coffee, which is the smoothest coffee I have ever tasted!
This trip is not as highly promoted by the tour operators, so I had to actually ask about it from the recommendations from Tripadvisor. Make sure you ask and go on this adventure.
Note: Probably not for young children, you do have to sit for a time during lectures. The discussions can be long, but perfect for someone who is wanting to learn. Bring sunscreen, a hat, and of course, a camera!
