Our driver kept us safe throughout the day and provided lots of information and awareness. Dunns falls were amazing. Couldn't climb them due to health issues but managed to get some good pictures and access from various viewing spots. Nine Mile was a winding narrow road and we got there quite late in the day but very fascinating and great to see the connection of the lyrics and where Bob was born and laid to rest. As the trip started late there were some parts which were a bit rushed and we didnt shop in Ocho Rios to make up the time.

Our guide Marcia was great informative, humorous and mad everyone feel welcome Her and Jason the driver worked well together as a team. Marsia provided lots of details regarding Jamaica the culture and the various places from the Jewish cemetery to the backstory of the criminal justice system that we drove past it was a very enjoyable tour a long day at enjoyable all the same!

Great day out. Long day of travelling but worth it to climb up the falls and visit Bob Marleys house. Also made better by the knowledgeable tour guide Washington and his friendly driver David.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE! The my guide was 50 and he took great care of us to ensure we didn’t fall going up and that we got great videos Definitely will do this again when I return

It was absolutely amazing we really appreciate the hospitality of the driver and the staff. Amazing experience thank you
