Our tour guide Maxine was awesome! Very informational as we rode through Jamaica to get to ocho Rios from Montego Bay. Dunn’s river is a lot of fun. Long drive to nine mile but it is so worth it once you ge there
I'm so happy that we decided to do this tour. The waterfall was absolutely breathtaking and my husband and I both felt like we were on top of the world once we got to the top. It was a pretty challenging climb but it's something that is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The Bob Marley tour was amazing as well. It was so awesome to learn about him and his family. This excursion was one of my favorite parts of the entire trip!
Dunns River Falls was amazing,, loved every minute of it. Nine Mile love being able to view Bob Marleys birth place. The tour guide driver Mickel was very knowledgeable and depending on where you stay the tours can take up a full day.
Upon leaving Dunn Rivers Fall please patronize the vendors, especially if you want your money to go to the locals. I did not patronize the vendors and one of the vendors said
Extremely disappointed in how the company handled this excursion. I booked this tour and added the Luminous Lagoon for myself, 2 daughters and granddaughter. I paid 700 for the 4 of us. After we were picked up from our hotel in Montego Bay, we picked up a couple in Ochos Rios who had only signed up for the Bob Marley portion of the tour. The driver decided to go to Bob Marley's first instead of Dunn's River Falls for this couple. Because of this, Dunn's River Falls was closed when we got there and so everyone on the tour missed out on what I considered to be the best part of the tour. The company was unable to fit us into another tour of Dunn's River Falls tour during our stay. This was the case with all of the other guests as well. I won't even go into how the driver and guide were going to do nothing about this and just expected us to not have a problem with this. With some insistence on my part, the driver took my information and told me I would be contacted by the company the following day to make this right. He would not give me his office number. I was told no and that they would contact me. When I returned home, I was contacted via email letting me know my credit card would be refunded 80. Not 80 per person...a total of 80. 20/pp Remember I paid 175.00 per person for the Combo Tour. I have used this company many times with no issues but will not be using them in the future.
Don't do this tour especially if you are coming from Negril. Our pick up was 7:30 am. We made at least 5 stops at Mobay resorts before we even began the tour. We only had light lunch, only 30 min at Dunns River- not enough time , the bus overheated on the way back from Nine mile and it took 15 hours
This tour was amazing!! I had the time of my life! I traveled to Jamaica alone so I was a little cautious about going on the tour alone but the tour guide Wayne Smith was the BOMB! He gave me the history on Jamaica and took really good care of me!
4 stars because the length of time it took to get to nine miles. Advise- use the bathroom before going on the nine mile drive. Also, we didn’t have a tour guide on our tour (called out sick)...the driver wasn’t so energetic but did get us back home safe.
I enjoyed this tour and would recommend this tour. If you have a waterproof camera you will save a lot of money. Dont buy the 40 video they sell you at the falls, its not worth 20. The driver was nice, but the tour guide was useless.
Amazing day! We had a wonderful driver Tony that took us on our excursion. The Dunn Falls were gorgeous and an awesome experience I would do again. You can't bring anything with you during your trip on the falls unless you don't care if you lose it. There are pictures and videos that were taken along the trip up the falls for purchase afterwards. Be sure to bring a towel and a dry change of clothes for afterwards, and water shoes are needed but they sell them if you don't have any, I think they are 10.00 US. Then we went to lunch and had the choice of fish or chicken. I chose the chicken and it was traditional jerk chicken rice and some greens. It was ok, I wasn't disappointed in it but I wasn't there for the food anyways. Afterwards we went on a trip up through the Jamaican hillsides and the country to Nine Mile. The drive was a bumpy and long one but we got to see the part of Jamaica I wanted to see away from the resorts. The drive itself was an adventure on its own and if you get car sick really easy you might on the bumpy drive. It took awhile to get there but the beautiful countryside was worth it. We got to Nine Mile later than we had expected but still got to tour the house and grounds. To be able to say you got to go to Bob Marley's childhood home and mausoleum is a pretty neat thing. Now if you go you need to remember you are in a different country it's not the U.S. and also Bob Marley's house so things that wouldn't be allowed so openly in the U.S. may be ok there. Basically don't be surprised or offended by someone smoking something other than cigarettes in the area. Would I do this again if I had the chance? YES!!!
Dunn's Falls was great, we, a family of 6 had a great time. On the other hand Bob Marley's was too far away . We were picked up at 8 am and got back to the hotel at 9:50 pm. We were given only Lunch . Would have been nice to stop after Bob Marley to get a bite to eat.
Should be two separate excursions .
