What You Can Expect
Arrive at Dunns River Falls, one of Jamaica's most famous natural wonders. After a short introduction on the natural history of the falls from your knowledgable guide, explore the area however you like. Climb up to the very top of the 600-foot (180-meter) falls to enjoy the stunning view of the surrounding tropical forest. For a more relaxed approach, swim in the natural lagoon at the bottom of the falls or take a seat on the deck and listen to the peaceful sounds of the running water.
Eat a traditional Jamaican jerk lunch at a nearby restaurant, and opt to purchase a rum punch cocktail to wash it down. After lunch, board the vehicle and enjoy the trip back to the Ocho Rios cruise port.
Worry-free Shore Excursion:
Was great...had our own driver for our family of 4. Driver was great, looked out for all of our needs. He even took us through the market to avoid a lot of the hassle, while making purchases.
This is the first time we have used Viator to book an excursion and was not sure what to expect but were overly pleased with the result. Private tour provided by our guide, Kingsley, included tour of the surrounding area: gardens, fern gully, shopping, road side stops at our leisure and as much time as we wanted at the falls following with lunch at a local establishment. Going this route allowed us to experience the falls at our own discretion rather than touring with a group. Kingsley provided superb personalized service and was very accommodating with no pressures on time. We definitely recommend asking for Kingsley if you are interested in booking this excursion.
Sorry--I just submitted and rated the wrong shore excursion!
This was a highlight of our Caribbean trip. Fun, exhiliarating, feeling a bit dangerous despite the lines of people all creeping up the falls. Excellent guides...although we didn't appreciate the videographer and pressures to buy his product6 at the end of the climb. Spectacular scenery, great jerk chicken lunch. Great tour guide.

This was my second time at Dunns River Falls and my husband first. A MUST see and do when in Jamaica! Our driver Kingsley Brown was very nice and professional. He took us on a tour of the surrounding area in Ocho Rios where we saw a beautiful ferngully mountain and he also took us to a hill top where one can see the cruise ships from the view. The only negative thing I would say about visiting Dunn's River falls is that after you have done climbing and are trying to leave you have to walk through a market where the vendors are VERY aggressive and just plainly a nuisance. I understand they are trying to make a living, but they are wayyyy to aggressive! Our guide, Milton, lead a group of us to the top of the river. He actually carried a couple childI strongly advise against taking a child who is younger than 10 years old..it's not fair to the tour guide, other guests or the child! The rocks are slippery and grown adults were having problems trying to climb!!! Some things re not meant for kids!!! while doing this. He also took pics of everyone who asked. There was a video photographer who recorded the entire climb and at the end was selling a copy of the CD for 40bring cash. After Dunn's River we went to a restaurant SCOTHIES..I love this place! To me it's the best place in Jamaica to get jerk chicken or pork! Just bring your patience because the employees work slow, but the food is worth it! Take cash with you so that you can tip and if you decide to buy souveniors. Take small bills otherwise you will get Jamaican money.
Great fun. Yiona and Richard were great and the food at Scotchies Jerk Shack was awesome.
This tour was amazing!
My husband and I loved this tour! We were taken to the falls By our personal guide, then given the opportunity to climb the falls with a tour or on our own (we opted to go it alone), then after climbing the falls we were taken to a local restaurant for delicious local fare (included)...great day!
we had good time
The falls are worth seeing however the mandatory shopping stop was pointless. I was not interested in shopping and would have been happier spending more time at the falls themselves. Finding the tour operator was difficult as the voucher did not say where to meet them once disembarking the ship
Dunn's River Falls is amazing! The only problem I had was that this tour was the same as just taking a taxi to the location. Our driver Baker did not give any history of the area or tell us anything interesting. He just dropped us off at the Falls and then drove us to lunch and then finally drove us to an overpriced tourist shop that was much more expensive than stores near the port. Our reason for taking the tour such as this was to get a Jamaican experience but it would have been cheaper and probably better as we could set our own schedule by taking just a regular taxi.
