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.

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.......
