“Cruise Ship excersion”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We took this trip as part of 7 day cruise around Western Caribbean. This was our first visit to Jamaica. The tour took from Montego bay to Croydon plantation about 2 hours travel so you see a lot of the Island. The tour guide was very informative and it was a great day out as opposed to just sampling the beach.

“Beautiful !”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Booked this trip off our cruise ship and had beautiful trip into the hills of Montego Bay ... Beautiful drive up to the plantation and our guide Alicia was a treasure... She was funny and knowledgeable and made the day... Lots of tastings ... Pineapple, jack fruit, coconut and finally a lovely lunch prepared by the locals ... Well recommend this.

Interesting and beautiful. Liked seeing all of the different plantings and hearing the history, but guide was annoying and very long-winded. Good traditional meal after.

“Best tour guide and very informative”

Alicia thank you so much for sharing your wisdom... We really appreciated your going the extra mile for our little girl who doesn't enjoy long and car rides very much and your remedy helped her not to have car sickness.

“Awesome Experience! Great way to see what else Jamaica has to offer.”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We had a wonderful time visiting Croydon in the Mountains. So very interesting and tasty! Our bus driver Keith was an amazing driver and so full of information. Winston, our tour guide was a hoot! He was very informative and a comedian! Such a great day! We even got to meet the owner of the plantation. I had no idea that there are 19 varieties of pineapple! Each one is super tasty!!! Melt in your mouth!!! You have got to spend one day of your trip to Jamaica in the mountains for sure. Don't miss out!

Lunch is included in the tour and it is a full day but you are back around 4:00 so there is still time for the beach.

We booked directly through our hotel guest relations service and it was easy as can be. Jamaica Tours is the way to go.

It was just my husband and I on this trip but older kids would be fine on the tour, in fact when we go back we might do it again with our son. There was one little girl (age 2) on the trip with her mom and dad and she did great! So kids aren't out of the question. Have fun!
