Best excursion Ever!!

The driver was so knowledgeable and friendly. He made our trip pleasant. 9 mile is a must do adventure to understand Rasta and reggae culture. The food was ok at Mongoose we got the jerk chicken. Needed more pepper sauce. The waitress was not attentive. Dunn’s River Falls was amazing. The hike up started off scary beautiful … but our guide Marcel was awesome as well!! Please do this excursion! Worth every penny and unforgettable!!

We had a great time and our tour guide was awesome!!! We felt safe! Got to see se authentic parts of the island. I am a music fanatic so to visit where Bob Marley grew up was an honor. While my friends did the climb to the Dunns River Fall I visited the Tranquility park and meditate! So peaceful and serene. And the Lagoon tour was something to see as well. The tour guides on the boat where very welcoming and fun!! Would definitely try different tours next time I visit!

What an experience. Let me start off with my driver Mr.Bernard went above and beyond through out our entire tour. It was our first experience and I would always recommend him. The staff throughout the day was marvelous from Dunns River,Bob Marley museum and the lunch/dinner was on point. Well worth my funds

This trip is AMAZING. Early start to the day (pick up at Montego Bay at 9am) and got dropped off around 10ish pm. Prepare to get comfy on the bus because there’s a lot of driving time between places, but well worth it. Our driver was gracious and helpful. Note that this trip is Not for kids, or adults who don’t have the energy or a full day to spend. Prepare for lots of driving. The drive through Bob Marley’s house is a gnarly roller coaster ride, so cool. Beautiful scenic routes. Good food. The river is so cool. The blue lagoon cannot be described through photos. Gotta see it to believe it! Lovely trip overall.

Not worth it, only do Dunns River Falls otherwise you'll be disappointed in the length of driving in this tour!

We booked this trip coming from Azul Beach Resort in Negril This was our first trip to Jamaica so we weren't familiar with the distance and length of time this tour would take as we certainly would not have done this tour. I tried to be as explicit as possible to help the next person considering this tour Our pick up time was initially scheduled for 7:45am. The time changed to 7:15am which I did not notice the email notification of this until the last minute so we were rushing to get ready in the morning and ended up running a bit behind. The driver was a bit impatient with us but ultimately ended up waiting for us. We had to go to 2 additionally resorts in Montego Bay to pick up additional guests. After picking up guests, we stopped at a place to get food which was not the included lunch location. I didn't order anything but sister and cousin shared that the jerk chicken was much better than the resort. One concern I had however is the currency exchange, as it seemed that they were not converting the currency accurately and instead charging more in U.S. dollars than Jamaican dollars. After stopping here, there is a second stop at a convenience store where the driver encourages the guests to shop. It seems a bit sketchy how it is set up and felt like there is some type of agreement with this shop and the tour company as they were really encouraging us to buy from the shop vs. from the Jamaican vendors at the Falls. Finally after leaving this stop, we were on our way to the Falls. I believe we arrived around 1pm. So from 7:15am to about 1pm we were traveling in the van and making stops that weren't relevant to the tours. A timestamped itinerary would have been great for Viator to share ahead of time as we were traveling with our daughter who was restless, rightfully so by this lengthy drive. Okay so we finally arrived at Dunns River Falls and it was amazing! My 6 year old daughter surprised me and conquer this climb with us. It's such a beautiful experience and the climb is so much fun. You should wear your swimsuit and swim shoes as this is necessary for the climb. You can also wear shorts. I suggest clothes that aren't lose or heavy because you are going through the water and climbing rocks. The bus waits for you during the tour so you I would recommend that you bring sunscreen, bug spray, a waterproof case for your phone, a change of clothes, a towel, a bag for your wet swimsuit, and if you are going to do the mystic lagoon I suggest a second swimsuit as well as you likely wouldn't want to put a wet swimsuit back on. Upon leaving the river, the tour guide does hassle you for a tip and will follow you back to your bus, so be prepared. The camera guy also inquires about a tip. Be careful as we unknowingly left a tip for both with the tour guide and the tour guide told the cameraman that he wasn't giving him the tip. Understandably, as truthfully I think we were tipping out of generosity as the cameraman does only take photos and does not help with the tour or support guests with climbing which was the tour guide's claim. We removed ourselves from this discussion as it was very awkward trying to intervene. The cameraman asked us for another tip which was really ridiculous. He also followed us to the bus trying to sell us the photos and video for $40.00 which felt extremely overpriced and I wondered if we would actually even get the photos. We opted out of this as it felt like a gamble. I do wish however we had more time at the falls as after the tour I would have loved to explore the park where the falls is located as well spend a bit more time in the children's park for my daughter to play in their spray ground. She was quite disappointed with not being able to do this. Walking out of the Falls is also a challenge as you are forced to walk through their vendors who are all working hard to sell items to you. They offer to walk you to the bus if you mention that you don't have cash on you so I suggest just simply reply "No thank you" and keep walking. We got changed and headed back to the bus. After getting on the bus we went to a restaurant for lunch. Lunch was the same jerk chicken as the first stop! We inquired about other options for children and they initially shared that they had fried chicken but then came back to the table and said it would take 20 minutes to make. Someone else then came to the table and said it would take 30 minutes to make. I offered to pay as my daughter was hungry and does not eat jerk chicken and low and behold the fried chicken appeared 5 minutes later. This is definitely a recommendation needed for the tour, if children are coming on the tour have kid friendly food options available for them. This was extremely frustrating considering how long of a day this tour is. After leaving the restaurant, we headed for Bob Marley's childhood home. The road to get their is through the mountains on a very small one lane road. So be prepared for incoming traffic to terrify you along the way. The ride is very bumpy so if you get car sick this might not be for you but either way bring advil/tylenol as I wish I had. The ride is also very long. Probably about 2 hours or so. The van was also very old so at times it felt like it couldn't make the trek uphill which was a bit terrifying. Once we arrived at the home, there's a stop right outside of the home for those who are interested in buying MJ. I wish there was some sort of heads up as we again had our 6 year old on the tour. I had messaged Viator ahead of scheduling this to ask if this tour was appropriate for kids and was told that it was appropriate. Clearly that was inaccurate. Quite honestly, I love Bob Marley's music and his story is amazing. But I could have gone without visiting his childhood home. It all felt sellsy vs authentic. You arrive to the home, there's a vendor selling shirts and candles. Then there's the bartender selling drinks and chocolate cake with MJ. Then there's the tour and then a small band performs a clip from a song with a tip basket in front. Our tour guide was okay and shared details about Bob Marley's life but also could tell he was ready to get the tour over with as we were holding him up from heading home. At the end of the door he held the door open and hand out waiting for tips. As we completed the tour, it was like a ghost town. Everyone that was there when we arrived the vendors, bartender, etc was gone. It was almost as if they were never there. The bathrooms were locked and we were rushed to leave. As we were walking out, there were kids who stuck a homemade stick through wall with a slit attached asking for money to be placed inside. This was heartbreaking for me to see so I did put money in there although I do recognize it doesn't fix their circumstances I couldn't walk away from them begging, almost crying for money. While at Bob Marley, I asked the driver how long would it take to get to the final destination the lagoon. He mentioned about 30-45 minutes. He shared that the other members in the group were not going to the lagoon and they would get picked up by someone else at the restaurant where we were to get dinner. Back in the van, after driving an hour and still being in the mountains, my family and I agreed that this trip was proving to be much longer and exhausting than any of us anticipated. We acknowledged that none of us would likely get into the lagoon and opted to tell the driver to take us back to the resort. He told us that since the restaurant had already prepared our food we would still have to pick it up. So we drove another 45 minutes to the restaurant to pick up the food. Then took the 2.5 hours drive back to our resort after dropping off the other guests along the way. We made it back to our resort, exhausted and hungry and quite frankly tired of tipping. We did again tip our driver who stood outside the bus as we exited and waiting for it. Unfortunately the food that was packaged for us did not look very appealing so we ended up ordering room service instead. Overall, the best part of this tour was Dunns River Falls. I can't speak to mystic lagoon as we opted out of this part of the tour. The driving was exhausting and our driver was not very entertaining or insightful. It was a pretty boring and extremely long ride. I only give 1 star because of Dunns River Falls. Bring cash and prepare to be haggled intensely!

Thank you for your very long review and your opinions which we will analyze for the future. We appreciate that this was perhaps not the right tour for yourself and your daughter. Its unfortunate that you perhaps didnt take note of the duration time prior to making your selection. Our pick up time is usually around 07:15 and the tour ends with a nighttime swim at the Luminous Lagoon which would have given you a good idea that the tour is extra long. We created this tour for the persons who wish to see as much as possible in one day, rather than having to travel that distance twice. After 185 reviews, this tour is rated Excellent : products need a rating of at least 4.5 stars to qualify for Excellent status. From your comments, you would have been happier had you chosen the Dunns River Falls only tour. We are happy that you enjoyed the Falls and thank you again for booking with us. One Love.

Get prepared for a WHOLE DAY of excursions! My husband and I were picked up at 7:15AM and got back at our Negril hotel at 10PM exhausted. The excursions are about an hr each; it’s mostly driving to the locations. Jesse was our driver and he was great! Dropped us off and waited for us between each excursion and meal stop. First was Dunn’s river with our guides (I think one was named Dwayne). They were very attentive and helpful during the climb! Bring water shoes and waterproof case (avoid bringing a backpack to the falls like I did). Pictures were provided (cost $40 and photos send via email) and the pictures were just okay. After the climb, we stopped at Mongoose Jamaica for a good Jamaican meal. Jesse drove us to Bob Marley 9 mile (wear sneakers). There we saw the home and burial of the famous musician (you are requested to remove your shoes for a portion of the tour). Weed and drinks are provided (bring cash!!) at the location. Our tour guide, Crazy Man, deserves a raise! He was such a fun and great guide! Made the tour the best and was very knowledgeable! A band was there as well and we had a mini dance session. Afterwards, we went to Lobster bowl for our second meal which was soooo good! The views of the water were pretty! Then we drove to Mystic Lagoon for the 6:30 p.m. boat ride (complimentary rum punch and fruit punch while you wait for the boat. They have a bar and food as well). If you’re a non swimmer like me, this is the best excursion to do. Life vest are provided and the water is only 5-6 ft deep. The bottom of the lagoon is mushy as hell! It’s a weird texture. It’s gorgeous to look at and see the water glow as you move around. The crew was very funny (I unfortunately didn’t get their names) and photos are a separate package if you want them (I didn’t purchase it). We swam around for a good while until the crew whistled for us to get back on the boat. From there we drove a good while back to our hotel. My husband and I were overwhelmed with how great the day went. Jesse made sure we were safely back and I can’t thank him enough for driving us around ALL day! PLEASE BRING ENOUGH CASH FOR THE WHOLE DAY! We had to do a bank stop lol. Bring bug spray (Jamaican mosquitoes are unruly!), sunscreen, water shoes, a towel, a change of clothes for the drive back. Clocked in 5+ miles that day! Once we got to the hotel we showered and PASSED OUT!
