I had been wanting to visit Negril when I got to Jamaica and came across the Viator.com site after searching many other tour companies. I booked the 'Negril Sightseeing Tour with Sunset at Ricks, the price was awesome at only 65.00 USD, compared to other companies wanting to charge me 300.00 just for myself. The tour company came directly to my hotel on time at 8am to pick me up, the bus was very clean and the ac felt great! The tour guide Melinda or Belinda I believe was very nice,helpful, and funny she told us jokes, we played games and she told us some history on Jamaica too. The bus stops at a souvenir place so you can do a little shopping and it has restroom facilities, we were there maybe 45 minutes. Next you go to Negril to the beach and Margarettville, the only thing is you only get like 3 hours total on the beach and then you leave to head to Ricks Cafe, I personally wished we stayed at the beach much longer because it was just beautiful. Once we get to Ricks you can watch many of the locals jumping off the cliffs as well as tourist jumping. Also the Negril Lighthouse is a short walk from Ricks if you want to venture there and back. The tour ends with the sunset and you head back to the bus for the long way home, the driver has to drop off everyone back at their hotel and I got back to my hotel around 10:30pm. My only advise is allow people to stay at the beach longer than a few hours if possible. I was in Ochos Rios and that's close to 3 hour drive to Negril one way so you are basically looking at 6 hours driving time total compared to the actual tour. Overall, for myself going solo and being on a budget,it was a great deal and I got to go to Negril!
Everything from the pick-up to the drop off was great! Clifton is a great driver with a good sense of humour! All the stops were given a good amount of time! Great job!
This trip was AWESOME The company was great and the ride was great the tour guides were great overall this trip was GREAT JTL
This tour was great. I really enjoyed watching the cliff divers, as well as the dolphins in the sea, and of course the beautiful sunset!
it was so nice the scenery was great the people were funny you will definitely enjoy your time there.
This tour was wonderful the view from Ricks Cafe was unbelieveable I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Great trip around the area of Negril ! The tour guides were awesome!!
I really enjoyed the whole tour, but what amazed me the most was 7-Mile beach at Negril... not so much the sunset at Rick's cafe, it was good but may be I was expecting something more
It was excellen! This was my mothers first time in jamacia and she enjoyed the excursion a lot! Lots of information about the different parishes. The driver and attendent we very prompt and knowledgable. I had been on another company's excursion and it was nothing like this one!
Great trip. Had an awesome time with our guide Fluffy, she was funny as hell!
We had an issue with Sandals Royal Caribbean letting the tour company enter the property to pick us up and they ended up leaving us after waiting for over an hour. However, JTL still sent a personal driver to pick us up after the bus left and drove us to Negril to meet up with the others. That was great. Margaritaville was your typical spot but the views and beaches were beautiful. Rick's cafe was overpriced but expected. The cliff divers were very entertaining. Must see.
I enjoyed this experience! When I arrived in Montego Bay I had to call the number Viator gave me. A lady from Jamaica Tours Ltd scheduled a time to come check my voucher and give me another receipt. Obviously, Viator has a contract with Jam Tours Ltd. The next day a large air conditioned tour bus came to pick me up from my hotel after viewing my receipt. They went to about 4 other hotels to pick up other people. There were probably 50 people total (full bus). Then they drove us to Negril while a funny tour guide on the mic entertained us by giving us historical facts about the buildings, towns, etc that we passed. We took one bathroom break mid way, although I didn't think it was needed because the trip is not that long. It rained while we were at Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville on the beach for about 45 mins-1 hr, but the outdoor restaurant is big enough for everyone to fit in. I just ate and watched their TV during that time. There were other tour buses there, too--mostly Americans and Canadians. Basically, everyone there was a tourist. After it rained, we went back out on the beach on the beach chairs, etc. There are locals who try to sell you stuff, especially rides on the jet skis and parasailing. They cost too much money, in my opinion. The water is soooo beautiful. I am from Miami and I would say that Negril beach is better. The sand is sooo soft like you're walking on pillows (I am not exaggerating much). There are no shells, rocks, etc in the sand, so it is super smooth. After we were at the beach (Margaritaville is on the beach) for 3 hours, we went to a duty free shopping center. It was the best shopping for me because it was EXTREMELY cheap! One of the shops was super cheap; I bought a lot of gifts for people back home. Then we went to Rick's Cafe and watched and/or particpated in the cliff dicinvg. That was really fun to watch. Lastly, we watched the sun set. I traveled alone for this trip and had a great time. I felt safe and comfortable the entire time.
