This tour was so peaceful and serene and the sun was blazing Hot, but that didn't matter to me at all. As I enjoyed every minute of it. A few bumps here and there but I was still able to keep my eyes on the beautiful plant life surrounding the river. My tour guides name was Shrek, He was very informative and funny too!
We had to contact chukka to confirm hotel pick up time. They were very professional and driver wasn and #39;t late. The whole tour was awesome, only 4 of us but was good as felt more personal. Rope swing half way was great. Tour guide Ned and the trainee, we and #39;re exceptional. Great guys, great day.
It was awesome! The rope swing mid way down the black river was our highlight! Also Kino and Shrek our guides were fantastic! I highly recommend this tour!
My group had the best time. Our guides (Thorp) were awesome! Well worth it you will enjoy the leisurely tour down the river and the occasional swim and the photo oops are great! Bring a waterproof camera and Enjoy!

Again Chukka Tours and our guide suna were great and knowledgeable. The tour was originally set for Thursday May 21st, but Viator stated they called me on this day before the scheduled pick up time of 11:55 am. This was not true and I never received any calls from viator as I can see incoming calls on my phone. So lying to a customer not a good idea, especially if you want repeat business. Our tour was re-scheduled for Saturday May 23rd and went off without a hitch.
The Jungle River Tubing was on the top of my list for things to do in Montego Bay. We are so glad we booked with Viator. The tour was calm and relaxing. We slowly coasted through the beautiful Jamaican jungle. The tour guides made the trip fun. Our group ate lunch at the cafe after our tour. The jerk chicken was sooo delicious!! The whole experience was excellent. Highly recommend the tour if you are looking for something fun and relaxing.
Really fun time. Our guide was funny and interesting and it was very relaxing. Had a blast.
The tour was relaxing and informative. I would do it again. They give you the option to tube it yourself, but your linked together. I am not a swimmer, so you can believe me. It is relaxing you get a safety briefing and a life vest. The tour guides does all the work paddling you through the river while giving you a little history of Jamacia and the areas surrounding the river. Bring Mosquito repellant, this is offered, but it is not as strong.
An enjoyable trip, which may even be suitable for those who are not very confident in water

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip down the river! Our guide, "Shrek", was very personable, knowledgeable, and skillful. The water was a bit low so no real rapids but we moved along nicely through what I would call a real rain forest. Very relaxing and entertaining!
Was everything I wanted it to be. Had a blast! Informative and relaxing. Great job!
This trip was awesome - the water is cool and fresh, they take you through a part of the jungle where you step into a smaller river and take you to a waterfall, and the guides are really funny. It downpoured that day and it was STILL our favorite excursion on our trip! :]
This is a must do. The scenery and the tranquility of the river are very enjoyable. Our tour guide was very funny and engaging. He made the trip for group memorable. I would do this again!
The tubing trip on the Great River was fantastic! It was through Chuka Tours from Negril. About a 2 hour bus ride, but the scenery inland was beautiful so worth the time. The tubing itself was great. We got on the tubes which were tied together in 8s. Our guide, JR, was so cool. He gave us a great account of the history of Jamaica and the immediate area as we floated down the river, even trying to teach us a bit of the Jamaican Patois language. There was great banter between our tube barge and another one lead by Shrek. Mostly the river was calm, then you would encounter some mild rapids and were told to "raise your butt" lest you have bruises the next day. At the end of the floating we climbed into Safari trucks for the ride back to where we started. The ride was hysterical if you don't mind bouncing out of your seat the entire ride. We were laughing so hard. The facility where the tour starts and ends is nice - food, lockers for your stuff, gift shop, and clean restrooms. Tip your guide because they deserve it! I would go again in a heart beat!!
What an amazing trip! Our guide, Delroy was great (and very entertaining). I would recommend that any visitors to Jamaica make sure to include this trip in your vacation plans!

The tour guides definitely make the trip enjoyable. They are very animated and fun! The tree swing is also a nice addition. We could have spent an entire day on this adventure! It's an adventure that can be enjoyed by all ages!
Good tour and worth the money. Loved the complementry rum punch. However, it was a 2 hr ride from the hotel. A bit of a hike for a 2hr activity. Would of liked this to be specifoed so that I could of booked 2 tours on the same day to make the trip worth while.
This was a great experience for us. The tour guides were very humorous and did a great job describing the extent of wildlife in Jamaica. It rained heavily, which helped with keeping the bugs down. If it doesn't rain I would highly recommend bug spray. They tied pairs of tubes side by side and in a long chain. This kept anyone from flipping over in the water. It was a nice relaxing tour down through the Jamaican jungle.
This was really relaxing to do. Your tub is tied to the others in the group so you aren't floating down the river on you own.
I brought a group of 20 on this tour and it was so fun. The guides are great. They tie all the tubes together and row you down. So beautiful. Plus the Jungle juice is awesome! LOL. The ride there was a little long but we had a great time.
Very good trip, however, it was raining as it usually does up in the mountains of Jamaica. Other than that, we enjoyed our tour guides and had fun.
