Teresa our guide and Mr. Luis our driver were both excellent, very informative and fun! They made us feel welcome immediately. The passenger van/bus we were on had the best AC and was an extremely comfortable ride. They were also able to drop us off at Scotchies at the end of our tour to get a bite to eat, since they had to drop off passengers at a different hotel and would be swinging back that way anyway to be able to pick us up again. Really enjoyed everything about the Falls and the Caves. Definitely bring comfortable walking/hiking sandals closed toe and heel or strap or water shoes with good grips, the rocks can be a bit slippery in the falls, if you aren't careful...avoid anything with black or green, it's extra slippery. In the caves, be prepared to climb a few stairs and crawl through one limbo hole, not recommended for anyone with knee or back issues. Also, don't bother doing your hair as you need to wear a hairnet and a helmet when going into the caves. All in all it was a great trip and worth every dollar!
This was my first time booking with viator.com and the experience couldn't have been easier.
The package for both of these was a way better deal than booking from the resort. Between these 2 parks, there is a lot of climbing, so if you are not in the best of shape, this may not be the tour for you. The caves were interesting and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. The caves were a little muggy, but not too bad. There was one time when he turned off the lights just to show how dark it is in the caves, so be prepared for that.
The falls were a blast. They try to keep everyone in the group together when you go up, and you hold hands and form a human chain.
Note: You will get wet. I thought for the most part, just my feet would get wet as we climbed up the falls, but nope. There are places where you are wading through pools about waist deep. They also have you slide down a rock into a small pool, and do the nestle plunge into another pool if you so choose. All of the guides are very helpful, giving you a hand when you need it and they video your entire climb, so you can purchase that at the end if you'd like.
This tour was a lot of fun. We could not have climbed the falls without the help of our two guides Harris and Moses. Everyone we told that we were going to Jamaica said not to miss the falls and I am glad we didn't.
With transportation and entrance fees included, this package was a steal. Our driver was courteous and the transportation was all ours since we were the only ones on the van. The sites were amazing!
This was a great tour! We learned so much about the history of Jamaica and info about the caves and the creatures that inhabit them.
The Falls is just a lot of fun with a bit of a challenge to it. A nice way to stay cool on a hot sunny Jamaican day!!!
We loved it and our Tour Guide Johnson from TourWise was very knowledgeable and personable.
This trip rocked! (No pun intended). The guide at the caves was informative and funny -- not rushed. The falls which were amazing! You can get water shoes there for $10. You don't need a guide there; we had more fun scaling the falls by ourselves. We even stopped for sweet sap by the roadside. ☺️
Absolutely awesome! The tour through the caves was a bit short and rushed, but the guide was friendly and full of information. Dunn's River Falls was packed to the gills being it was during their Independence week of celebration for Jamaica. That aside, we took the non guided tour and had a blast! Will definitely go again.
This was our very first trip to Jamaica and our first time visiting Dunn's River Falls and the Grotto Caves. The caves were interesting, very hot and muggy during some parts, but very interesting to see. Our tour guide was very energetic and also really funny. He kept us laughing and engaged throughout the 45 minute tour. The earlier you can schedule your tour the better. We went on a Wednesday around 10:00 a.m. and it was only my husband and I and another couple with their two children. Once we finished our tour, the place was packed. Dunn's River Falls was so much fun. Longer than I expected but well worth the trip. There were tons of people waiting in line to get a tour guide to go through the falls, however, you don't have to have a guide to get you through. My husband and I decided to do it alone and walked right past the long lines of people and started the climb together. Once you start you follow along others in a single file line so there is no need to wait in the long line if its just a few of you taking the climb. Some parts are slippery so be sure to wear swim shoes or sneakers.
