We were very pleased with this excursion and told everyone about it when we got back to the resort. We've visited Jamaica 3 times and this was the first time that I felt we saw the non-resort Jamaica. The mountains were just beautiful and the bike ride was exhilarating while feeling completely safe. We were worried it would be a little too much being on a bike for over 2 hours but neither one of us ever felt uncomfortable. I highly recommend this excursion.
An excellent experience!
it was great tour with awesome guides.
more extrimy than what we thought!
Tour was nice just a bit rushed during lunch and at the water fall, needed more time or be told by the guides current time and how long we had
We were picked up on time from our Ochos Rios hotel. The drive took us along the northern coast of Jamaica. We drove by coconut, banana, and pineapple farms. We also drove past a bauxite mine. Our driver Harry told us a lot about local life in Jamaica and the people. Once you turn off the road to go up the mountain, be prepared to go on a long car ride on a narrow winding road. It is not for the faint of heart or for those who might get car sickness. Once we arrived, we were greeted by the owner who took us on a walk of the farm. They farmed coffee plus had plantains, bananas, and pigs. We were also fortunate to met his grandmother who was the third generation who worked on the farm. They treated us to a tasty lunch of local cuisine. We ended the tour by returning the way we came. If you are looking for a tour that gives you insight into the local people, this is the tour for you.

Great fun. Old skool bikes but that made the downhill experience more exhilirating!
Six or seven hours on a bus, up rough mountain roads, down hill on beach bikes that were not safe at all. Brunch and lunch were served two hours apart - so skip one. We saw a lot of the country that is for sure - but so not worth the time or money
This tour was the highlight of our trip. It is a new business owner/operator Delton Rhoden is a wonderful tour guide we learned a lot about Jamaica and it's people from him. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. This tour takes you through some of the most awesome scenery jungle forest, waterfalls, mountain farms. Then we stopped at a farm at 4000 feet elevation and got a tour from a young man who farms the land. We had lunch at a coffee/cafe/bar. We saw Blue Mountain coffee growing and had the chance to watch it be roasted and ground by hand and were able to buy some at a great price. The ride back down was just as stunning and fun. We all enjoyed this tour the most out of all the things we did while in Jamaica. Most of the credit for this goes to the tour operator Delton who was such a pleasure to be with. If you want to see another side of Jamaica this tour is a must you will not be disappointed.

AWESOME. I do it all again. I loved it.
We loved the tour. The views were amazing and the tour guides were excellent always concerned for our safety. The brunch and lunch were very nice and I loved the swim at the end. A great tour and would recommend to everyone
Great value for a wonderful day. Views amazing. Only negative comments are the bus was cramped - my son and I both sat on seats above the wheel which meant we couldn't put our legs down on the 2 hour trip. The bikes weren't in the best in conditions. But the experience was worth it!
Amazing! Fantastic scenery, brilliant guides, good food. Drive to get there was great, good to see a bit of Jamaica.. The views all the way down were stunning, nice and chilled able to stop wherever. Bikes easy to ride, back-pedalling to brake. No effort required. Waterfall at the end was lovely
The trip was not what we thought it would be. Our group assumed we would reach the highest point and take in breathtaking views of Newcastle. Very disappointed with the views. The journey that BMT took was completely different from information already provided. Does not give a true picture of Blue Mountains.
best excursion I went on in Jamaica, well worth the money and the staff was very helpful and informative.
best coffee you will ever drink, but the bikes could be upgraded little.
WE had a very nice enjoyable day in the mountains. One suggestion might be to not have so many people soliciting things or themselves to guide at a natural site such as a waterfall. People prefer to just enjoy the natural beauty, a waterfall isn't supposed to be turned into a commercial venture, such as what has occurred at Dunn's River Falls.
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.
Informative and entertaining driver on the 1.5 hour drive to the start. Breathtaking view at the cafe where you eat breakfast and lunch. Trip down the mountain was also fun and informative. It was a lot slower pace with more stopping than I expected (which was probably for the best!). The bikes and equipment were a little rickety, but manageable. I would definitilely recommend the tour!
Friendly, helpful guides. All downhill. Very scenic and worthwhile doing. Lasts all day.
Had a great time on this one, the views were incredible and no photo can truly capture it. My only complaint would be that the bikes could have been of better quality
