Entertaining and knowledgeable guide and bus driver. Enjoyed sites along the way, as well as, the fabulous plantation. This tour is for those who will appreciate Jamaican landscapes outside a resort town/city, getting up close and familiar with the plants, including fruits, nuts, flowers, herbs and spices, and coffee production on a plantation. It is also for those who would enjoy sampling freshly picked tropical fruits, and an enjoyable lunch with opportunity to learn while having fun.
one of the most informative tours i have ever been on.We tasted,felt and smelled everything that was grown on this platation.Alisha and Wnston , our two tour guides did a terrific job and we were introduced to the owner of the plantation and were free to ask him questions.I can't say enough about the informative nature of the tour and the hands on approach of the tour.
The Croydon Plantation Tour was such an educational experience. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour guide's presentation while on the plantation. The entire culture which is so different from ours, opened our eyes and we developed an appreciation for what nature can do at the expense of man's hands. We will never forget our experience. Tasting the different fruits was a bonus.
This was a great excursion - You start off by learning a bit about Jamaica and the plantation, and then they tell you about the coffee and honey production. You get to try fresh pineapple juice, like 10 different kinds of pineapple, and a fresh, hot lunch at the end (complete with Blue Mountain Coffee!). I don't really like pineapple but I loved almost every single kind I tried - it's so fresh here. If you're not into learning or trying new things this probably isn't for you. But otherwise, go for it. We even got to meet the plantation owner. :]
This trip was simply amazing! We were pleasantly surprised on how delightful the plantation was. The day started off with a wonderful bus ride by a very friendly and safe driver named Artwell. We then picked up some equally wonderful tour guides, Alicia and Winston...they were a blast....very knowledgeable and funny beyond belief! We arrived at the plantation to be treated to delicious treats, an education and a scrumptious lunch..(thank you Michelle)......we even met the owner...Mr. Hannah...what a sweetheart.All in all it was a marvelous day and we left feeling a little sad...knowing it would be awhile before we meet these lovely folks again...Go...you will be very glad you did!!
This tour was excellent .... we had good drivers, well versed guides and a good lunch on the tour ... the plantation owner greeted us and he chatted individually with most of the people that were on the tour.
From the moment our driver picked us up-we had nonstop fun. Our tour guides were so knowledgeable. The tour was such a hands on tour. You got to see, touch, taste and smell all the different Jamaican grown produce. I was pleasantly surprised when my eight year old son said how much he enjoyed this tour. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was the highlight of our trip...it was great to get away from the resort areas and see how the locals actually live, and the beauty of the countryside is incomparable.
Well worth a visit - small group tour - plenty of opportunities to sample a variety of fruits grown on the plantation. View from where we had lunch was spectacular!! Jerk Chicken was on the menu and quite delicious!!
We enjoyed this tour very much, however, as seniors we found it rather long. It was stated that it would be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. It was close to 3:30 when we returned to our hotel. The tour guide was very informative and the lunch was excellent.
The tour guides were very imformative and knowledgable about the plants on the plantation. This trip is good if you want a lesson on botanicals. Or perfect for an education school trip, not for someone traveling on vacation looking for an adventure. We took our 11 and 14 year old boys and they were not impressed.( Complained of being bored).
