The guide assigned to our group at the Grotto was exceptional. He was very patient with all people on the tour some able to move quickly and some not so much. He shared much knowledge in a friendly and articulate way. The beauty of the caves is wonderful, and the history of its use fascinating. It is a tour not to be missed.
Our driver was accommodating, and answered many of our questions, taking a more interesting route back to our ship.
The only negative, our fault, was when we stopped for a traditional Jamaican lunch, albeit at a pretty place with lovely views and a nice breeze, the prices rivaled the highest price dinner cost in the states for lunch. We thought the menu was given in Jamaican dollars rather than US dollars. oops -- our fault for not thoroughly verifying.
So easy to deal with. All the cruise ship excursions combined the caves with Dunn River Falls which we've done already, and just wanted to do the caves. It was super easy to find our driver once we got off the boat, he was very friendly and knowledgable about the island. He dropped us off at the caves, helped us get signed in, we got on the tour, he was waiting when we were done, and took us back to the ship. A perfect time for us, with none of the hassle. The caves were really cool too. The tour was about an hour long, and it was fun learning all the history. Our 6 year old really enjoyed this as well.
Had the BEST time!!!! Both the driver and the guides were AWESOME!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this excursion. I traveled with someone who has a developmental disability and they made the trip very special for her. Can't say enough good things about them. Very kind and funny!!
Had difficulty finding driver who was to pick us up at 1pm at the pier- Finally talked to dispatcher who made phone call and finally driver arrived well after 1:40- He flipped the dispatcher a bill and we were off- Nice young man and nice vehicle- We were only ones on tour and seemed as though would not have made contact without the dispatcher- Otherwise tour was fine
We loved it, but it was a little too short. If you like just being in a comfort zone, not to much choppy water, then this is for you. If you are looking for more waves, then you need to find a different river.
I had a great tour and would recommend this tour to my friends. My tour guide was friendly and very informative.
Tour guide was lovely and well informed. The rafting was magnificent. We had time on the beach and the food was delicious. Thoroughly enjoyable.
This was a blast and a hoot while at the same time
VERY relaxing ! We had Gayle (Rupert) as our
guide who was very knowledgeable about the area,
professional, courteous and friendly. My gal pal and
I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Thank you !
A great trip to do when in Jamaica we laughed the whole time we were there, we had a an hilarious guy show us around (captain crazy) a very good day. Not suitable for children.
This was an amazing experience, better then what I thought it would be.Our guide was humorous fun and had a great vibe. Although maybe not for everyone, if you love Reggae and are a fan of Bob Marley, I'm sure you will get what you want out this tour. I took my 3 teen children and they really enjoyed it to, having grown up listening to Bob, they appreciated it too.The drive from Falmouth (we were on a cruise) was interesting as well seeing the local landscape etc. Thanks for a great day :)
Very simple and yet exiting tour. We took this independent tour through Viator rather than our cruise organizer, because it was cheaper. It was easy to find the driver who met us with his own BMW at the harbor. He was very helpfull and positive and we ended up having a personal trip to the attraction with him. The caves were interesting with bats and even small snakes. The bottom of the caves is well worth the 65 stair climb. The Bond movie live and let die had parts filmed in here.......
more like a lazy river rafting experience. Transportation to the site was much later than told so waited for about 45 minutes to get there. Staff was friendly ... no complaints there. Swing was fun. Would have enjoyed swim in river
We had great time! The rafting wasn't scary but a lovely ride on the river. Watching guests on the rope swing was fun. Just wish the white water rafting had been longer!!
My husband and I recently went on the Jamaica river tubing adventure on the Rio Bueno. It was one of our favorite excursions starting with the friendly van driver to the professional staff. The river rapids and scenery where spectacular!!! We would highly recommend it to anyone!!!
There was a problem with our driver being able to get thru security @ the port, so we had to call the local number and make arrangements to meet outside the gate. The tour itself was great and our driver, Johnson, was very accommodating and helpful. We would definitely do this tour again.
A long drive for a half hour tour of some shacks. Not a tour for children. Had difficulty locating driver for tour, he was outside gate.
While the rafting portion and beach was nice, the port pickup was TERRIBLE! The phone number provided by Viator didn't work, so it was hard to find the guide. Then, once we found him, he said "wait right here" and never returned. 1 hour later, thanks to another guide's kind help, we found our van!
The tour van arrived late, and no one around terminal seemed to have a clue about these guys. Finally one lady called and got them on their way. The shopping trip is a joke, they take you to some shops owned by friends and a flea market. (bad idea) The falls are beautiful and fun, but know you are going to get very wet. My advice is to book through the cruise line and stay away from this particular excursion.
The guides on the trip were very friendly and made the excursion enjoyable. There were 3 pairs of people to be picked up and we were each told a different area to go, finally after a half hour of everyone searching and making phone calls, we all met at the van. The "rapids" were more like a lazy river ride, maybe rated a .5 rapid. Pretty scenery.
We had a very interesting guide and are sure the tour would have been great - except that it was pouring rain and after getting thoroughly soaked at Dunn's River Falls we asked our guide to cut the tour short.
