The luminous lagoon is...
Cassandra_B, Apr 2023
The luminous lagoon is amazing and I would highly recommend. Our guide Nicholas with Jamaica Best Tours went above and beyond to make it an amazing experience. He got us to the front of the line so we were first on the boat and he got us a spot up front for the fire show after. He consistently checked in on us to see if we needed anything and gave us recommendations for the rest of our trip. We highly recommend this excursion, or any excursion with Nichola!

This tour was amazing. It was just my son (11) and I. Our driver who picked us up was the sweetest and very knowledgeable about Jamaica and the whole process. I felt completely comfortable with him, and was glad that I booked through here where I didn't need to be stuck on a bus with all kinds of different people. It was personal. As for the tour, we arrived, got a number in which they call you onto the boats. Went out on the boat where it is pitch black, but extremely gorgeous. You can see all the stars. We then learned about the microorganisms that glow. As the boat was moved, you saw the trail of
