The black River and YS Falls were absolutely amazing! The rum tour was very interesting however lunch there made me sick. It was worth going regardless. The tour company was very organized and arrived on time. The tour guide did an excellent job.
YS Falls was the best part! It was fun to jump off the falls into the water below! :) The Black River was cool also, and it was neat to learn so much about the local wildlife (and get upclose with crocodiles!). Of course the rum factory was a hit! Beware, it stinks but you get used to it after awhile. Also, be ready to spend a lot of time driving. All three places are fairly distant from eachother and it was close to a 3 hour car ride back to our hotel in Negril from Appleton.
The tour itself was great! All the stops were fun and varied enough so you were not bored. Black River and YS Falls were both extremely picturesque, so make sure to have plenty of batteries for your camera. Appleton tour was extremely informative, even if you have been on similar tours before. I had been on brewery tours, but never liquor so I enjoyed it even more. The tour company used was a great choice as the guides were fun and entertaining. They even placed us with people our own age, making the trip enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a nice smattering a Jamaica culture all in one day. Warning...it will be a long day so prepare accordingly with snacks, plenty of sleep, etc.
This tour package was one of the highlights of our vacation. Highly recommend!
Anita was a great guide to our small group. Roger at Black Safari did a very good job and it was a great experience. Our tour in my eyes though small had a more personable tour with extras. I would use the services again anywhere. #TexasTourist
EXCELLENT!! had a blast and the guides were FABULOUS!!
This tour was absolutely amazing from start to end. The Black River tour was perfect! The stop at the YS falls was only an hour so it was a little difficult to get in the zip line ride that enticed us, but it was gorgeous. The Appleton rum tour was amazing, loved all the rums we tasted. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining; the bus driver, highly skilled! We did NOT forget to tip them. Thank you!!!
All of the elements of the tour were fine however the transportation was lacking. Instead of having a regular tour van, they rescheduled us with a local driver and shoved 10 of us into a small minivan. Some people had to sit on laps to accommodate. On top of that, there was no one onsite to provide us with an explanation. We paid $178 to feel like a sardine all day -- totally not worth it!
Outstanding! The guide was friendly and informative, and the bus was on time. We had a great time!
I would highly recommend this tour. Black River Safari and YS Falls were very scenic. The Appleton Rum Estate was very informative and the rum was great. We had an excellent driver. It was a day well-spent.
The Guides were very informative and helpful. Excellent tour. I would recommend it to anyone.
Although the tour was informative and fun, the bus should be replaced or upgraded. I didn't feel safe on those mountain roads and would like to have had a seat belt.
Although we did have a great time on the trip and would recommend it to others a few things should be pointed out to people booking it in future. We were a little disappointed by our time at the YS falls as it was too short. There was not enough time to swim and have a proper look around. It was a real shame as it was such a lovely spot but found our selves rushing and not enjoying it. When booking the trip we assumed that the meal included would be traditional, or at least have a local/traditional option but unfortunately it was burgers and chips. With little choice for the vegetarians amongst us. Also when tipping at the end it seemed that both the tour guide and the driver wanted to be tipped individually. This made the end of the trip very awkward as most people had combined the tip and while they handed it to one the other would reach out as well. Having said that all the guides throughout the day were very friendly, helpful and informative. Overall we did have a really enjoyable day.
Both the driver and tour guide were very professional, helpful and our tour guide gave us a lot of information as we travelled about landmarks along the way. While the tour was longer than we had expected we still would recommend your tour company to our friends
Outstanding tour and guide!! Had a great time!
