This was a very nice day. We were picked up early 8:00am at our resort. We had a lovely tour guide Lisa. She was friendly and professional. The driver was excellent at handling the bus! We headed to the Black River Safari. This part was fun our guide loves his job and enjoys taking about the birds and wildlife. YS Falls was amazing. It is very beautiful. The guides are freindly and will take your pictures as you explore and swim in the falls. We enjoyed this part of the trip very much. The lunch provided was very good. There were several choices for lunch. So, after exploring the falls area lunch was served. There are nice and clean changing rooms by the natural pools so you can change out of your swim gear. Then on to Appleton rum tour after lunch. This is the furthest part of the trip. It is well worth the drive. We toured the factory, learned the history, and sampled different rums. There is a rum store there...but honestly wait until you get to the airport the rum is cheapest there. (You can pack it in your carry on.) Then back on the bus to head back to our resort. We returned to our resort about 6:15 pm.The bus was clean and comfortable. The drive back was long and bumpy. But that would be the only negative, can't help the roads are rough. This was a wonderful day. It truely was worth the time.
Sydney picked us up right on time. We told him where we wanted to shop and he did his very best to assist us. We shopped at the city square where the shops are very nice...we did some open market shopping and grocery shopping. All the while Sydney was just a short distance away if we needed assistance. Then, we went to
Rick's Cafe. We were dropped off at the entrance. We had about two hrs there. We watched the cliff jumpers then enjoyed a lovely sunset dinner on the top floor of
Rick's. The food was excellent, service was great. We enjoyed this tour a lot. When we were finished we went to the entrance and there was Sydney waiting for us. This tour is highly recommended and ask for Sydney when they call to comfirm your reservation...you will have a wonderful time!

The airport is hard to get through but once we did, everyone seemed to want to assist us. We had an easy time finding the counter we needed and a helpful representitive found our driver and we were on our way in no time. Sydney was a very professional and safe driver. We enjoyed the ride to Negril and learned a lot from Sydney about the people, land scape, towns and history. This was nice drive to our resort and we will us it again on a return trip.
