What You Can Expect
Your afternoon and evening Super Saver begins with hotel pickup in Negril, at the Grand Palladium resort in Lucea or in Montego Bay, depending on option selected when booking. If you’re staying in Negril or at Grand Palladium, relax on the scenic drive along Jamaica’s gorgeous northern coastline to Montego Bay.
Upon arrival in Mobay, as it’s called locally, explore the city on a one-hour sightseeing tour with your guide. Check out attractions like Sam Sharpe Square, named after a 19th-century slave who led the 1831 revolt known as the Christmas Slave Rebellion. You can walk around the square to see the statue of Sam Sharpe, as well as surrounding colonial buildings and the St James Museum.
Then stop by St James Parish Church, one of the country’s finest churches with its stained glass and pieces of art by English sculptor John Bacon, and enjoy a drive through residential neighborhoods to admire graceful Georgian homes that date back to the prosperous days of the sugar trade.
End your tour of Montego Bay at a local shop called Rainbow, where you have 45 minutes of free time. Browse Jamaican goods like rum, coffee, cigars and bottles of the island’s beloved jerk seasoning, and stock up on a few gifts and souvenirs. Don’t forget to also grab a bite to eat for dinner (own expense) at one of the neighboring restaurants.
Next, head with your guide about 15 minutes to Rose Hall Great House, known for the haunting tale of Annie Palmer, the ‘White Witch of Rose Hall.’ Legend says that Annie killed her three husbands and several slave lovers before being killed herself in her bed. During your one-hour tour through the 18th-century Georgian mansion, listen to the story and discover for yourself if Annie truly haunts the house, which also features historical furnishings and décor for you to admire.
Luminous Lagoon Night Cruise:
After Rose Hall Great House, make the 30-minute drive with your guide to Luminous Lagoon for the second part of your Super Saver. Located in the parish of Trelawny near where the Martha Brae River meets the Caribbean, the natural lagoon is home to harmless microscopic organisms that glow with phosphorescent light in the shallow water.
Take a 30-minute boat ride on the lagoon to marvel at this natural phenomenon and learn from your guide what causes the eerie, entrancing light, which only appears after dark. You can even go for a swim if you’re feeling adventurous!
When you return to shore, you’ll head back to Montego Bay, Grand Palladium or Negril for hotel drop-off. During the drive back to Grand Palladium and Negril, a stop is made to purchase food and drinks (own expense).
Our Driver "Junior" was Excellent! He was very friendly and knew so much about everything and so polite! He took us down town MoBay and showed us around Sam Sharpe Square, as well as visited the Montego Bay Civic Centre currently housing the Museum of St. James, an art gallery and a theatre. The museum traces the history of St James parish, from the Arawak era to the present day. Exhibitions and shows are hosted by the museum and theatre respectively, ask at the museum for details of upcoming features.
After that we headed in the evening to Rose Hall for the haunted tour. It was fun but very very humid. The tour guide gave a very detailed history of the house and owners and as well some staff acted out parts as she talked.
We then headed to go on the Luminous Lagoon Night Cruise. We were the only ones on it as we go there a bit late. Very erie to be out there but after seeing how the trail of the boat was lit up I jumped in to experience it 1st hand. It worked! When I 1st jumped in it was very cold but as the captain of the boat kept saying "swim swim" I did and could feel the warm water come up as I moved around and it light up like a Christmas tree!
All in all it was a great tour and would recommend it to anyone. ^5 to Junior for being such a great driver/tour guide. Thank you!
The customer service in booking this trip was awesome. We ended up with our own driver and a car for just the two of us which was really nice. The guide was very friendly. The shopping trip I would skip if I had to do it again as it was just more touristy stuff that I did not want to buy. The tour of Rose Hall was great, however I thought that it was supposed to be by candlelight and it was not - this could have been my error though so my rating is not based on this. The Lagoon was fun but I would not suggest going after a couple of days of rain as it affects the luminosity.
