What You Can Expect
Begin the descent from an impressive 5,600 feet (1,700 meters), take in the breathtaking views of Kingston, Jamaica’s capital. The peak of Blue Mountain – the highest point in the entire Caribbean – rises 7,402 feet (2,250 meters) nearby.
The land of leaves and water. This was a sensational tour promoting the breath taking vistas of the The Blue Mountain...just beautiful. It was very well organised from pick up to drop off. We had a fantastic tour guide who was very safety conscious, fun and knowledgable about some of the plant life. The food was fantastic - my girlfriend was worried that she'd be hungry during the tour as we had to skip breakfast but we were fed twice and the food was lovely. The bikes are designed to be quite slow so those of you who are hoping for serious mountain biking action should be advised that these bikes are back-pedal breaks and it's a relaxed glide down the mountain side. The reason for this is that the tiny road is not one way and there is no way of seeing traffic as it is coming up the mountain. The mountain side is a sheer drop and not protected by fence. For this reason, there is a car that rides up front about 5 minutes a head of the cycling party (you can't see it) - that radios the lead cycler when there is traffic coming up the mountain. I felt safe the whole time.
Towards the end of the trip we were taken to a secluded waterfall - we swam in it and watched some of the locals diving from great heights. This was a sensational tour, lots of fun and very chilled out. As with all if these tours I would advise you to bring a little cash with you to tip the driver, tour guide and also (if you decide to swim in the waterfall) one of the waterfall guides. We very foolishly left our wallets at the hotel and were really embarrassed that we couldn't tip. They were all very cool about it but I'd encourage anyone who goes on these tours to give something. These guys are all consummate professionals. From Ocho Rios, this was about one hour and 20 or so in the taxi - not too long and there is enough scenery to keep you occupied and one pit stop. From Negril, it would take you around 3 and a half hours by the time everyone is picked up to get there. An excellent trip.
This trip was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. It was nice to get off the resort and see some of the island. The driver was friendly and knowledgeable. Swimming in a waterfalls was a refreshing way to finish the day's activities. We were a party of four and I saved $80 by booking with viator.
