The Dunns River climb was amazing and great fun. If you want to purchase the DVD photos it can be expensive so barter for the best price, we knocked the guide down 10US.
Beautiful location knowledgeable guides a wonderful combination for a great experience. Picked us at our hotel and facilitated everything from shopping to island history. I highly recommend this trip.
Absolutely wonderful, fun and unique experience. Consider that you never went to Jamaica if you don't climb the Dunn's River Falls!
My 5-year-old daughter wants to go back; she loved it.
A little drive, 1.5 hours from Montego Bay, but definitely worth it. Beautiful. Even though your guide says you have to rent water shoes, you don't.
This is worth doing again, very beautiful.
The tour guides were very courteous. They picked us up on time and they were very knowledgeable!! I would definitely book with them again. Oh did I mention they were very economical also!!
My girlfriend and i loved it. It is an experience that will stay with us forever. It is also really good exercise. When you get to the top, you will want to do it all over. Don't forget your water camera; this is something you'll want to show your friends. It is for all ages; it is kind of difficult in some parts, but when you get to the top you will feel proud of yourself. Don't leave Jamaica without coming here.
Dunns River Falls was fun. Rated as a 4 instead of 5 because it was a very long day and the majority was riding and shopping with just a fraction of time at Dunns River. We were picked up at 8:30 and returned at 6:30. The trip up the Falls was about an hour.
The service was not bad. I give it a 4 because I didn't have the "wao" factor I would have expected to have. It was just alright....
Tour was great. Both the tour guide and driver were good and friendly. However, we were under the impression that we had booked both dunns River Falls and Ocho Rios Shopping Tour, JTL Rep at the hotel insisted that we were booked for Falls only. Ended up paying additional for the shopping tour.
Website is not clear in making this distinction.
Had a wonderful time at the falls but was disappointed with the shopping. We'll return to the falls but shop on our own time.
This tour is great, just don't go on Wednesdays or Fridays because you will have to contend with the cruise ship tourists, which was overwhelming. We made that mistake and it was chaos (not really ideal for climbing up slippery rocks with rushing water), but I would recommend seeing the falls.
From the tour description, I had expected to be able to walk around Ocho Rios and choose a restaurant for lunch before going to the Falls. However, there were 3 bus stops - at a small mall (we were given discount coupons), a pottery outlet and a local craft market - so if you are looking to shop on your own in Ocho Rios, this may not be for you. The lunch was at a pre-chosen restaurant with a lovely location by the sea, but the food was so-so and a bit expensive.
The Falls were beautiful and everyone enjoyed the climb. WATER SHOES ARE REQUIRED to climb the Falls and you can purchase them there.
The guide and the driver were great, and they picked us up on time.
