I loved this tour and all the stops! Dunnes River was excellent and fun, 9 mile was so neat — I’m not a huge Marley fan but I found the whole thing so interesting (minus the very sexist and crude tour guide at 9 mile), and the luminous lagoon was so much fun. I also loved the beautiful views and sunset from the tour van and even the food was pretty good. The main issue is that our tour guide for the overall trip did not speak much and when he did he was very quiet. It was honestly fine though because the view was so beautiful.

Amazing!! Dunns River was out of this world, would definitely recommend and try sticking it out and climbing all the way up! Feels so good! Our tour guide, Hajis, was brilliant and so informative! True gentleman and a laugh too!

We had an exciting time from start to finish. We loved the energy of the staff, wonderful music, snacks, drinks, and the stop at Margaritaville. I would highly recommend.

We had the best time! Claude is a fabulous guide, great company and very informative, we learned loads about Jamaica! Dunns River Falls is amazing

the lady driver was very good l would like to use her for tomorrow's trip
